    Drake, thanks for everything. Do whatever you feel is right. Maybe we take the message boards for granted. We might think they’re a P.I.T.A. sometimes. But if we ever want to write something down, and the boards aren’t there… Maybe we didn’t know how good we had it. Thanks Drake, being the webmaster must seem like a thankless job at times, plus you have to pay for everything. You’ve done something wonderful here with this site. You’ve done a really nice job with everything. You’re cool, thanks for all you’ve done.

    [quote quote=70936]I am honestly open to whatever everyone wants to do. Just wanted to throw my two cents out there and see how others feel. [/quote]

    I have no idea, to be honest … but it’s a perfect ponder.

    If we proceed from the proposition that what was wasn’t working (since traffic had died off significantly), what could the site be in order to attract more use?

    Maybe there’s nothing. Maybe as Stones-dom slides into its long slow obsolescence the band can be serviced adequately by what’s already out there.

    Is there anything Stones-related which could be discussed here which cannot be talked about anywhere else? Is there an angle  or a twist that would justify the continued existence of a relaunched EOMS or an EOMS 2.0?

    Perhaps the best thing to do at this point is exactly what you’ve done: solicit opinions. Maybe you’ll get some good ones and decide to move forward. Maybe we’ll all just toss in our bad jokes and worse snark and the place will die of its own accord. In any event, I’m not volunteering for anything since I wouldn’t want to be a member of any club that would have me … but I would participate in information gathering and in the effort to help determine what a new site might look like. (Not architecturally, of course, nothing like that, the bones of the existing site are fine; but philosophically.)

    One thing we had here that no one else had,  aside from a band of malcontents, 🙂 was the Periscopes and chats for the shows, fantastic.

    I’ve always imagined that as the Stone’s careers wind down sites like this would gradually evolve into more a more general music or rock message board  but with the music of the Stones as an anchor.

    IMO the bootleg upload section was the site’s USP, and the best reason for keeping it online, because it appeals to fans interested in the band’s history and gives EOMS a purpose after the band finally calls it a day.

    I think what needs to happen is what is happening right now.

    People need to use it, chat, voice opinions, maybe lets have a periscope up on the last 6 shows and we can all join in and have a laugh if we feel like it.

    Perhaps as Socrates said, we take this place for granted. I have always had this feeling that ultimately it didn’t work out here because of the very thing that attracted us to it in the first place. The political threads for instance , although i enjoyed them they put wedges between people, i didn’t realize this. Its one thing to fall out over preferring Mick over Keith , but another to fall out because not only do you prefer Mick over Keith but you also like or dislike Trump etc. Republicans don’t like Democrats and visa versa.

    When we get into gun laws and Nationalistic responses to everything, we end up not getting along.

    Hind-site is a wonderful thing, but i think in retrospect these are a few of the mistakes made here.

    It can’t be the Wild West if it wants to be a Stones forum, and i never thought i would here myself admit that.

    And where did the “Mick dating……………” thread go, Drake ?. I hope it’s not some kind of cencorship, if it is, i’m out of here. It was Stones related and something to talk about for those who like to talk about this kind of stuff. The Doxa/Riffhards fall out was just cute, and no reason to do anykind of cencorship. Fuck this kind of cencorship,

    A lot of people know who “DandelionPowderman” is in real life, Marianita.

    Having stuff like that out on the Internet attached to my screen name is not “cute” at all.

    I agree with the things Doxa said about you was way over line, but the arguing between them was just stupid and childish. Why didn’t Drake just kick Doxa’s ass out of here because what he said was way over line. We can’t cencor every thread because someone comes in here and fuck up. And Doxa you fucking moral police coming here and then you fucking talk about putting something in somebodys mouth is just….., just sad

    Great post, ‘Nita. And it leads me to this -> what exactly ARE the grounds for banning/blocking here at EOMS? Drake……..please inform us. I know you have a “no banning policy”  but as you can see, posters don’t enjoy rude/crude comments made about each other.

    Let’s see how all of this pans out. I thought there was the Golden Rule here…………..?

    Unless you have a moderator sitting on the board 24X7 I don’t see how you avoid situations like this. Drake clearly doesn’t have the time to do anything other than respond reflexively to only the worst offenses. He was thinking about shutting this place down until the last couple of days; is it really realistic to think of him suddenly issuing proclamations about conduct and banning and monitoring stuff in a hyper-vigilant and/or sensitive way, enforcing various ‘norms,’ but avoiding the appearance of any ‘censorship’? I don’t think so.

    I think we just continue to post here and enjoy it while it lasts, each of us contributing in ways that make sense to us … or we split if we’re not digging the scene anymore. We’re adults — there’s nothing compelling us to stay or go … it’s up to each of us, no?

    It wasn’t pointed at me. What Doxa said is not repeatable.   I have his post but would not show it anywhere. Just unbelievable really.

    I think an apology to DP from Doxa is in order. I have always had a lot of respect for Doxa but he needs to do the right thing here.

    I believe I’m referring to the lovely work you came up with, right after CE opined her thoughts.

    Don’t know what Doxa said and I guess if it’s been edited, or he’s self edited, I don’t want to know.
