Faster Louder Vs M&N

fourforward  said about 8 years ago  or at  3:32PM on Thursday, September 14 2006 in chat

What's the difference between the 2 really? To me they are basically the same. The faster louder people seem to think otherwise.

"mono is populated almost entirely by bitchy scenesters"

"Yeah, it SUCKS that shirt-stirring bigots are put in their place."

"I've perused mono and I fail to see what is so funny about it. I guess you have to be a mono scenester to "get the inside jokes". Please tell me what is so funny about mono? Maybe I am missing the point??"

"Reasons why FasterLouder is better than any of those scenester websites or mono? It's because up until now we haven't had to deal with people and their scenester crap. People who are here at FasterLouder are here because we love music - not to count how many people we can pick up on the net."

Raised: $13 680

Average contribution: $52
Contributions under $13 (''actually get the album'' level): 5% backers, 0.5% value
Contributions $13 - $30: 60% backers, 25% value
Contributions $31-$100: 25% backers, 25% value
Contributions $100-$200: 7% backers, 20% value
Contributions $201+: 1% backers, 20% value

The numbers don't quite add up, I think it comes from anonymous contributions / contributions asking for a smaller/no reward tier than they deserve / contributing a non-reward-tier amount.

I guess the lesson for artists is: some of your biggest fans will allocate low three figures of disposable income to buying 30 minutes of your life.

Oh God, they have rules surrounding sarcasm. You are meant to write in magenta coloured text.

moo-core  said about 1 year ago:

Wait, seriously? Ahahahaha.

Sunnyboyz  said about 1 year ago:

nah, seriously, it helps.

poprocks96  said about 1 year ago:

Seriously, let's get over there and troll them. With our raging wit and sarcasm.

Sunnyboyz  said about 1 year ago:

I mean, Fasterlouder is a better site because it doesn't get bogged down in the boringness of Australian music.

poprocks96  said about 1 year ago:

Crap. Should that be in magenta?

Sunnyboyz  said about 1 year ago:

My raging wit needs to be restrained.

anonymous  said about 1 year ago:

Why doesn't that rule exist for the articles?

anonymous  said about 1 year ago:

like that topwhatever things in music that happened last week, would require red ink everywhere

poprocks96  said about 1 year ago:

Everything DL writes should be in magenta.

Sunnyboyz  said about 1 year ago:

I would think it more appropriate, and less harsh on the eyes if anything sincere and earnest was highlighted in colour.

I'm sure the internet is sitting at a 80/20 sarcasm vs. sincerity split.

Currently getting spammed harder than i've ever seen. 14220 posts in the last 24 hrs alone. Sound Alliance are gonna have a time cleaning that mess up tomorrow.

anonymous  said about 11 months ago:

Browse the general forum, hilarious.

Then buy viAgra, good for libido.

anonymous  said about 11 months ago:

can we check if this gets fixed quicker than the m+n mobile site, I assume the one dude is still on holiday.

TimChuma  said about 11 months ago:

They are owned by the same company, not sure why they would even keep this forum running except for a place to keep the undesirables.

GOD  said about 11 months ago:

That's a legitimate operational concern
