well one of the things i'm going to look at doing is coming up with a bit of a better system for the knt. I'm not just going to make a bunch of random changes for the sake of it. I'll be taking on ideas, and hopefuly we can sort out the poor kitten a little bit. When it's not being spammed to fuck, the knt is a great place, but you know as much as i do, when people start to push their luck and wreck the place, it turns to shit, and most of us get bored of looking at it.

don't worry. i will not ban teh lulz.

this makes me happy face


one thing that was my main issue jus nao with the removal of our banter and its replacement with this thread is:

theres not really any room now to post random tab/music related stuff like:

i'm gonna meet buckley's mum

i just found this cool flash app on the net

etcetc


cool little things, that don't deserve a whole thread, and don't have any place in any other thread.

can we come up with a place for stuff like that? the k&T RANDOM thread was good for that, BANTER ruined it and made it much less gear/music oriented

so can you have a look at something like that for us?!

oh yeah of course. I totally agree. I'll be having a proper look at ways to improve knt from monday. I think the most likely solution will be to make topics that can cover broad things. for example, the general luithery thread. That's working great! There's no spam in there, and people who have issues/progress/pics etc on building can discuss it in there. Similarly, the Guitar pr0n thread works well too.

I'll be taking ideas and suggestions, from monday. I'll probably look through the suggestions thread, and possibly start a new one discussing ideas and options with anyone who has a concern.

I think K&T is pretty good at the moment with all of the designated threads: pictures of your gear, general luthiery, recommended gear etc. Most of the new posts generally go into one of these designated threads so everything is sorted well. I think when the new album arrives and all the inevitable new members these designated threads need to be promoted more to avoid a load of threads being made that could fall into one of these threads.

I agree with what's happened about banter as if people need to chat and discuss non-k&t things the banter sub forum is an ideal area for this to take place. So let's maybe have our own k&t thread in banter.

Also I think mods need to be a bit stricter about offensive posts and people deliberately taking threads off topic with "whammy" etc. Although most of this has been sorted out with the recent bannings.

Edit: Congrats on the mod status Trad3mark!!!

yeah, i think it got WAY out of hand with the whammy shit. The best thing to do in those cases is to just report the posts. Like, a joke is one thing, we all get jokes! but when someone asks a genuine question, and some ponce comes back with "You can't play the guitar unless you whammy your whammy's whammy," it just pisses people off.

*hi5!*

Thing is though every thread goes off topic with the occasional lolz. I mean I burst into the German thread yesterday talking about my beardy dog. It's fine to have a laugh, nobody will go around banning your lolz. It's just the obvious off-topic ongoing conversations and the rudeness that we had a problem with.

smoke machines:

we played a gig tonight in lincoln, everything was going pretty well until about twenty minutes in when matt completely lost his voice and we had to stop playing. there was a smoke machine putting out quite a serious amount of smoke onto the stage, his throat was dry and his range got completely knackered.

anybody have the same experience with this happening? i have once or twice, but not that bad. apparently it was the water based type of smoke machine, which after doing some reading can apparently cause a dry throat and coughs.. does anyone have experience with other types of smoke machines/hazers? dry ice etc?

this is a bit of a shame really, as we didnt get to finish our set and we do really love playing with smoke machines, but might have to ask for venues to not use them during our set if we cant get around it ;(

although it's not completely the same, there's a place down the road from me that does this thing Q-Zar. It's one of those things where you have this body pack thing on you, and a gun that works off of lasers. and you go around shooting each other. i think in america they call it laser tag? it's like paintballing with lasers.

anyway, a while ago, they got new smoke machines for it, and the place used to be pretty much flooded with thick smoke. You could usually spot the lights on peoples packs and guns, but that was about it. I used to love going, it was class, but then with the new smoke machines, they used to wreak havoc on my eyes, making them dry and sore. Similarly, i used to cough a lot, which gave away my l33t ninja hiding sniping spots... From when i was a stage hand for a friend's play, i think it has to do with the liquid stuff they use. I think they fill up the smoke machines with some thick liquid, and that's what makes the smoke. He had some that he got from a company that does pyrotechnics etc, and it was a fancy one, that we were assured wouldn't affect people with asmath etc.

I suppose what i'd suggest doing is next time you're playing a gig there, ask in advance for them to not use the smoke machines? it's a small request, and i can't see them having a problem.

if it's a water based that's giving Matt trouble, why not try dry ice? or is that a similar thing?

i'd recommend dry ice over smoke machines. Because the dry ice mist, (cant remember the chemical name for it...) is denser than air, it should stay around your feet and not go near your mouths.
