videos.antville.org = Gorillaz Forum?!
erm... 286 posts to the Feel Good Inc. comments...
is there no official gorillaz forum anywhere?
i mean, i love the blogosphere's spontaneous outgrowths as much as anybody, but this is getting slightly... pathological (apart from clogging the comments index), no?
what do you suggest? moderators? a closing time for each post? It seems to me that the people who made this thing just set it up and now it's running on our own gas. who are we gonna complain to?
mv: no, no, nothing of the sort. anarchical self-selection will do fine for me. just thought the process might need a catalyst.
I can't believe you used "blogosphere" as if it was a real word
progosk using blogosphere =
hey how the f did you get that picture?!
yeah toss those gorillaz freaks out on their bottoms!
One thing that would solve the problem would be to have the right-hand bar show "Posts With New Comments" instead of "New Comments." EG, it might looks something like this:
GORILLAZ VIDEO: Most recent comment 2005.08.15, 3:15
THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKING: Most recent comment 2005.8.15 2:20
and so on.
I have no idea how much of a pain in the ass it would be for the site admins to code that, but it would certainly make the new comments feature more useful (even after this Gorillaz madness dies down.)
adamr is the only one who can end this. If he logs in and deletes his original post, the gorillaz kids will be so pissed to see their life's work gone that they will abandon antville forever.
You should be careful. Now that you've used "Gorillaz" in the header, this might be inadvertantly taken over by rabid Gorillaz fans.
488 and counting.
the entire "recently modified" pane filled.
where is adamr when we need him most...?
ADAMR SAVE US!!!! IT WOULD BE SO FUCKING COOL TO SEE THAT SHIT CRUMBLE!!
seriously, there's some savy folks here - who can track him down?
I suggest asking the admins of videos.antville.org.
You can contact them by posting there [link deleted].
i disabled comments for the gorillaz
ok, done. let's see what they come up with
kris - thou art a god (though now i fear the wrath of the gorilliez...)
i'm going to add a few changes in the next few days. for example, i'm going to axe the topics listing. there are too many topics to be usable.
and regarding the wrath of the gorillaz, mate: i'm not afraid. they are just a cartoon. they are not real.
HA HA DIE GORILLIEZ!!!!
kris: wrath of the gorilliez, not of the band themselves - these... lifeforms are capable of subtle torture....
"axe topics listing" - you mean the directory? hmm. ok i guess, as long as the search works... though it was a kind of impressive chronicle/record in its own right.
while you're at it: do you think you could move the search box above the recent comments? especially if it's to become the main indexing tool, it's a bother to have to scroll down to it.
search box has been moved. i also added some css stuff to cut off everything after 400px. now long urls and wide pictures won't hurt the design and the readability.
the directory is still there at videos.antville.org, but you the dropdown menu in the form for a new story is gone. meanwhile, we have 1068 topics, which makes the whole concept unusable.
(one of the next antville updates will transform the idea of topics into something like tags or keywords. once this is implemented an available on antville.org, i will see if i can come up with something better.)
yowzah! it's the details that'll keep this place with it.
kris: tags/keywords can easily be added as of today by just adding a new 'part' to the story-editor-form and change the story-display (see mks.antville as an example).
i doubt if topics could change from one to many without a massive change in infrastructure, but i have only looked so much into the source.
i know you can add a new field for keywords or tags, but you cannot yet list all stories with a given tag. i talked to tobi the other day and they are planning something like this.
captain: what might happen now is that the gorilliez migrate here.
should that be the case, i trust you will know what to do (and take a certain pleasure in doing it...)
I'm on it. Almost feel bad for the Gorill-nerdz their life work erased.
it's not erased, just hidden. i can set it online anytime i want to.
WHRE IS IT HIDDEN KRIS?!I HAVE TO FIND IT.IT'S BASICALY MY LIFE!CAPTAINMARC,YOU SURE AS HELL BETTER NOT EVER CALL ANY OF US "NERDS"AGAIN!

i am really, really curious as to who these gorillaz people actually are.
i mean, how stupid do you have to be to not understand that there are many other places to go to chat with your friends about your favorite band. JUST NOT HERE.
yo gorrilaz people. what's selfish is you crowding this site with your innane banter. everytime i log onto antville to look at videos, i have to sort through all of your gramatically incorrect symbol-strewn waste. go to the GORRILAZ website.
yes,but I know everybody here.Noy there.
YOU CAN'T EVEN TYPE!! GO AWAY!
THE GORILLAZ WEBSITE HAS NO CHAT,NO FORUM,NOTHING TO COMUNICATE!!!!!!!!
"NOY" IS YHE JAPANESE WORD FOR NOT YOU PRICK!!!
START A YAHOO GROUP!!!
START A LIVE JOURNAL!!!
GO TO THE OFFICAL FORUM!!!
(I'D SAY GOOGLE 'GORILLAZ FORUM' BUT THE 2ND ENTRY IS THAT ANTVILLE THREAD....)
If FORUMS.GORILLAZ.COM IS NOT WHERE OUR PAGE IS THEN FUCK YOU!!!
i can't believe i am arguing with you.

NO I CANT.WE ARE NOT LEAVING UNTIL YOU GIVE US OUR PAGE BACK!

Besides,if you blocked me,I would simply create another profile.HAHAHAHAHA!FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLSSSSSSSS!!!!!IF YOU WANT US TO STOP BOTHERING YOU,SIMPLY RETURN OUR PAGE!!!!

WHAT DO YOU SAY?
DOES PART OF ME FEEL BAD FOR THESE GORILL-NERDZ?. Here, copy this cache and then start something elsewhere.
NOT GOOD ENOUGH,WE WANT THE REAL PAGE!
THE CACHE DOESNT EVEN ALLOW US TO WRITE!
If you get the real page, the terrorists win.
Look,if the real page is returned,consider this all a bad dream,as in,we will forget this ever happened!
TERRORISTES,WE ALL LIVE IN AMERICA!
no, you live in wackyville.
LOOK,IT WOULD BENIFIT US ALL IF YOU RETURNED THE PAGE!WE WOULD NEVER BOTHER YOU GUYS AGAIN,AND WE WOULD HAVE OUR PAGE!I HAVE TO GO SOON,BUT IF THIS IS'NT SETTLED TODAY,TOMMORW WILL BE WORSE!AT 6:00,I WILL BE OUT OF HERE,UNTIL TOMOROW!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!G.T.G.lil bit early,but tommorow,tommorow is a brand new day,we would also be satistfied if it was retuned tommorow,after we arrive from school!
BYE 4 NOW!
kids, listen: you were doing your thing in the wrong place. i'm sorry it's ended like this because i think i know what it meant to you. but this site just isn't a forum. your conversation was making part of the function of this site unworkable.
what i don't understand is why you don't use the forums at the gorillaz site: they're made for your kind of communication, and you can create all the topics you need for yourselves.
it's sad to see you begging this site's admins - you're all smart enough to create your own corner of the world where nobody can fuck with you. believe in yourselves a little more - and don't end up depending on others like this.
don't drag this out. there's really no point.
what the hell are u thinking
who knows kris tell me asap
I think lisa90 knows him.
who know kris
i got real good news so talk to me
also, kids (i'm being as resourceful as you should really be), if you need a copy of what you wrote (up to 11 sept. anyway) look here.
okay, kids, i'm being nice. i had a similar site like this somewhere and i created a backup of your "discussion".
go here: wha.twoday.net
the site works basically like the one here. enjoy!
"Have fun with TEH GORRILLIEZ"... genius, kris...
Thank you,we will keep our promise,and never bother you again.
however,I would like to realy know why you took it from us in the first place.
this site is dedicated to music videos in general. your talk kept site regulars away.
Well,Im sorry I drove you into ambush.
I really hade no clue,I just came to google once,went searching for"Gorillaz Feel Good Inc,and ended up here!I just assumed it was about Gorillaz,because I saw the picture of Feel Good Inc!but again,I sorry.
We are even happier in our new site!Glad we could compromise,GOODBYE!
Everybody.according to the Internet service providers internet guidlines,deleting/and or,"steeling"pages,threads,forums,or websites is punishable by law.please return the page that you have stolen to it's rigtfull place,or I am afraid I am going to have to get Internet Service involved.
Tina Whitheres,Internet Service.
erm, jakzass, if you'd cared to read a few lines above you'd have noticed kris' all-too-friendly gesture: he's provided you gorilliez with a page all of your own, which does not interfere with this site.
go here: wha.twoday.net and remember to thank kris.
