Forwarded to my mother. I don't care if it's going to be 90°F+ for the next 3 months, I want that sweater.

We must be too intimidating to most casual fans. Ha.

What steps can we take to make the forum more accessible?

This is madness. What has happened that caused such a spike? Did we get link from the band on twitter again or what's going on?

okay,its the day after the night before 1 lurker,1 bot..etc, it seems that the world can live without a camera obscura forum,don`t know wether luka/pauls snazzy one will be more passerby friendly,it remains to be seen,nice of the band to twitter us again but it seems to no avail,thats okay can`t bend no-ones arm like,shacknet has been accused in the past of bein"cliquey" which its not...and this place may appear the same...people may be happy to not dive in to what may appear written word nonsense,its strange that at least 90 people may be prodded by curiosity but decide its not for them...thats fine..

up close we look far away,

I just wonder how many folks even use forums anymore to talk about music these days. Seems like everybody is switching to short-hand communication like Fartbook and Twatter, which is fine, you know, but not exactly set up for discussion deeper than "I <3 Camera Obscura" "I <3 CAMERA OBSCURA 2!!" "OMFG!"
We write a lot. People don't like to read.

We got a few new registers and a couple folks who hadn't posted in ages or hadn't ever before yesterday. So it was good day.

i think ya nailed it there Paul.. most people don't really want to chat or put their ideas out there if they take longer than 2 breaths to say em.. plus, the net is so full of decent blogs that where would ya find the time to keep up on them AND post your own disjointed ideas?.. i like this forum because of the lack of OMG's and LMFAO's.. even my own sister's lingo is top-heavy with those.. i guess i'm old (but so is she!) and i find it juvenile at best... most of the circles i run in, talking about "pop" music would be taboo.. not macho enough i suppose so this also provides me an outlet to connect with like minded musical tastes without the fear of wussing out.. Very Happy
so maybe more folks will see it that way too.. i'd be happier to get 3 intelligent people than 300 blathering buffoons anyhow.. and don't get me wrong, not all LOL's and BFF typers arent buffoons.. just the more vocal ones are! Wink

jfc, how do you find all these videos and stuff? this is absolutely the best place to get different co material than the youtube videos i've watched a million times already.

i must admit i am a little intimidated about posting here, but not because of you guys specifically, but i guess i'm afraid of boring everyone to death since you've been here forever and probably discussed to detail every aspect of co.

anyway, i'm trying not to be such a lurker.

We have talked about a lot of stuff but in many cases I'd love to talk about it again with somebody who's got a new perspective. And my opinions and thoughts change so rapidly that I'm going to have something different to say on a certain subject than I did even 6 months ago.

Much like graeme, I'm bored at work. I don't usually go Youtube surfing but I could chat all day on forums when there's somebody to chat with. Please, don't think you'll ever bore us. God knows I've written my own fair share of drivel over the years...

thanks for the welcomeness, i'm not feeling pressured or anything, i'm just being overdramatic.

what's the etiquette here regarding creating new topics about subjects that might already have been discussed X commenting on very old ones? and about too much rumbling about tracyanne's awesomeness?
