PSYNEWS BACK ONLINE

 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 

After some heavy work, and 30 hours offline, the Psynews server is up again !

 

The threads & posts are those from 2 days ago :P

 

However, the user base was totally destroyed so the users you'll find (and their emails & passwords & PMs) will be those from August 1st. All i could do is fix the posts count. You'll have to fix your avatars yourselves.

If you created your accound after that date you'll have to recreate your account.

 

Unfortunately, in the mean time, some of you were considered as harmful to the forums peace and will not be allowed to return. Don't mistake it with the fact that most 3000+ posters are blocked until some decisions are taken about new moderators and who shall handle what. Don't worry.

 

 

The OffTopic forum is closed for a few days. I guess it's wiser. Some furious posters might go elsewhere like that... It will be decided soon about its future.

 

Please guys, the aim now is to have a nice & useful friendly place.

Be very sure to read & apply the forums rules

 

ENJOY !!!!!

mars.

Thank goodness for my local psy community (chilluminati.org) unfortunately they're all into the new stuff which I don't like at all (ugh!)

 

Anyways, Mars, you're a brave soul for going for this task again. What the hell, you have the domain and what good would it be registered and no site built on it? And thank you for ridding this place of those "let's post 300 posts a day because we're cool like that" users. It's amazing at how many people who frequent this site really don't have lives. The only thing they know of psy is what they've read on here perhaps? =]

Hmmm. Im having some suspections this site will not be the same for people who liked it as it was before. Sorry, but that's how i see it. Closing off-topic? You should know and probably know people love this community mostly because it's so free, hardly any moderation etc... But then suddenly everything changed. And it looks things will not be here anymore the same as they used to be.

The polls that have been made if i remember correctly was that people were happy with how things were here, without some drama this place would get boring, :)

So Mars you should really consider what the people here want's ..and not you. As it's the people who make this place great, a board without users is nothing. I think this place might turn into a place i don't want to be apart off. Not that many people care. But it feels like psynews is forgetting it roots and things that made this site what it is..

 

REeeeeeeeeeexzzzpect

No other pstrance forum cricism.. ??

No drug incitation? i don't know what incitation means.. but if it's some restriction about what we can talk about drugs and what not. Then. Hello.

 

Man. What happened, you will make this place some isratrance2. Other may agree with you that they are fine rules. Me. Want's to puke. Sorry for being harsch, but i think you kinda lost it.

 

Im happy you got the place running and otherwise you rock! again! I just fear that if these rules will be strict then this site will be just one psytrance site amongst others..

A quick suggestion or hint...

 

 

did psynews really get hacked and go down or did Mars use that as an excuse to reformat it so he can instill his new dictatorship?

 

 

a bit of coincidence I think... ooops there goes psynews now it is back and everybody mars does not like is banned and he deletes, sorry cannot retrieve, older posts and he edits and deletes a whole lot of others stuff... a bit obvious mars. Oh and the new rules really do suck... all hail Mars, the Fuehrer!

The new rules suck? Did they change? Are they anything different than what is expected on almost any internet forum anywhere, or real life? Not particularly. Boils down to: be decent and nice to others. I don't see how that will prevent any of us from pursuing the main purpose of this forum, which is discussing psytrance.

 

"drug incitation" might mean that one should not incite or suggest that others do drugs. In other words, I can talk about my own experiences, but not recommend that the entire world do the same. This reasonable and cautious from the legal standpoint of the site operators.

 

Mars: I sent a semi-melodramatic email to you at a hotmail account I dug up from a suntrip records page during the downtime. Not sure if that's an account you check often, so I'll repeat the question: what is to become of the old goa reviews and artist info pages? Before the downtime there was a sidebar with links to those old pages, but I'm no longer seeing it. Did they get blown away?

 

Good to see psynews back, I didn't know what I was gonna do without it.

- No drug incitation

- No other psytrance forum criticism

you just have to make the difference between "talks about drugs" and "convincing someone to try drugs". see it from this point of view if you will.

criticising other forums ...this means let's not talk bad about similar forums, we're all in this together, and it's the people that make a forum, not the other way around. so i guess this rule is asking you to make a difference between "discussing" forums and "bashing" forums.

 

some kind of "do not do to others what you wouldn't want others to do to you". it's one of the main principles of democracy.

 

as for Off Topic, mars already said that it is only closed for a few days.

 

psynews is back, and i see nothing but positive things in this.

wow, this psynews crash and restore brought back old PMs that i had deleted months ago.

 

i feel a bit nostalgic :)

 

especially because of a PM stuff going on between me and Tox, and between me and seraph.

 

hey Bert, remember when you wrote me this?

Don't take this the wrong way, but as you post so much I seem to have missed you talking about trance in any way .

So therefor my question: what kind of music do you actually like/listen too?

Cheers,

Bert from Belgium...

 

remember what i answered? :D this is part of my reply:

hello Bert!

i don't talk much about music, because ... i don't have a big collection like many of you people do (some people on psynews have a collection of over 1000 albums...), and i don't want someone to come and say: shut up, you know nothing!

i don't know .. let's say i am a good listener, but a shy talker. i tried to make a couple of reviews once, but i lacked "technical" terms and specific reviews' language.. so i said why bother

 

wow, well, i gotta tell you that now i am more active, much more, and you had to do with part of it.

you made me ask myself "why don't i talk trance?? wtf."

 

and with seraph, hehe he sent me a PM in which he was a bit upset with me.

seraph, remember this?

And now I see you were confused about my name... What is wrong ?

Have I done anything wrong ?

 

i found this question so cute back then that this is what probably made our friendship start.

i know you can't reply to this right now, but it's just temporary.

 

damn this psynews :wub:

it holds inside so many stories, so many interractions, so many good things. :wub:

 

i guess we are .. as Tashira said .. "a trance community".

 

i luff you all psynewsers :wub:
