It's officially dead.

I log on sometimes after not checking for 3/4 days and the only posts are by you, replying to yourself & hehe's conspiracy shit.

I've no interest in conspiracy's and I have the sky sports news app to tell me the football scores so this place is pretty much useless now.

Baz, Kev and I had a mini soapbox meeting in June. To me it means the place is still alive, at least in spirit.

It's an empty shell these days.

I'll never forget the glory days of '05 when I'd get in from work and settle down in front of the PC with 8 tinnies and browse The Soapy until the small hours.

Good days.

You won't be saying that when it's time to do the Albums of the Year thread.

I turn 30 in october and lots of people are reaching 40 or something. I miss the good old days of being Jorma and called a cunt etc etc by people like glasi, mahoney, blain etc.... I browse this so-called soapy every now and then, mostly just to find some interesting new bands or something. The general section here was mega before around 2007. I can remember laughing my tits oot while reading some threads like 'what a mad neet it was' and the like. Soapbox used to be such a hardcore place for a young and pretty innocent man like I was back then.

Funny though im only a very sporadic poster now but I first remember finding the masterplan website it 2002 when I was working abroad to get heathen chemistry news / reviews. Used to go an Internet cafe on a daily basis 1 euro for 20 mins all to see photos of liam in that coat at Finsbury park. Think when I got home properly I first joined the forum 13 yrs and still madferit

The previous incarnations of this forum were honestly te best forums I've ever come across. It's died a lot but nothing can take my memories!

On the doorstep [Siouxsie] asks me whether right or left would be the best direction to find a taxi, and although her best bet would be left, I suggest she turns right. It is churlish of me, but it is she who has set the pace.

Yeh it's pretty dead now but we're mostly all 30+, working full time jobs and have families etc. We're not the 21 year old alcoholic insomniacs we once were, or more likely we are but we have other ways of getting the weird shit off our chests these days with the likes of twitter and facebook.

I'm thinking of condensing the board a bit though, there's loads of redundant bits.

I reckon we get rid of the blog discussion and art boards, merge the NGHFB and Beady Eye into an Oasis section, which could be a sub-forum of the Music section.

So it'd go

========================================

Soapy
------------------
Music
--Oasis
Film/tv
Sport
Gaming/Tech (is this needed?)
------------------
eddie_murphy and billy_connelly (hehe) in their own little bullshit bubble

=========================================

Any suggestions/objections? If not i'll sort it out this week

maybe roll gaming into film/tv? tech questions are so infrequent they could just be asked in general chat.

:D my first post in months

I'm allergic to dust mites so it's nice to clean this place a bit but it surely needs more than that to wake it up from the lethargy

It's woeful at the moment. It's never going to be good again. Can't remember the last time I saw a Karl Mahoney post; is he dead?

No sub forums needed. Just bung everything in the soapbox.
