PostSubject: Brian in praise of DimestoreSaints (& thoughts on official forum)   Thu Jun 21, 2012 11:53 pm

From Brian (Tumblr):

Quote :
FAN CLUB!!!!

So with this record Ive been working on being more consistent. You see, before, Id just say things, whenever the mood struck me day to day because I figured no one really pays attention to my babble. So one day Id feel one thing, and the next something different Im a weirdo, and a little bit of a hippy.

Anyhow, now that I realize people are actually listening to what I say, I figure Id better get consistent. and quick so I said thered be a fan club, and THERE IS!!!!

The 45RPM Club! You can find it on our new site www.thegaslightanthem.com

So heres some things I wanted to point out about it

1. First, Im a member of the 10 Club from Pearl Jam (obviously) and there were some big kinks there when they first started it, but Ive found that now it works pretty well as far as tickets and merch, so were gonna use a similar model (the same) so that it works out how I have found my experience with PJ has worked, which is great.

2. The Forum, this is an Official Gaslight Forum, but its not the only one we also have a Fan Run forum called Dimestore Saints (http://thegaslightanthem.bigforumpro.com/) and you can choose whatever you want to use. The Dimestore Forum is great and I back it so thats gonna stay for fans by fans. I guess well try to do some different stuff on our forums, like official bootlegs and things like that. But as with the 10 Club, all the things take time, so it wont all be ready to go at once. But we will try to have special things at our Official Forum from time to time, but for consistent and up to the minute stuff, Dimestore Saints is a great place to check out and hang with some really nice people.

Thats pretty much all I can think of that I wanted to address right now, Im sure more will come soon.

Enjoy and thanks for joining!

I'm glad Brian gives us some acknowledgement, but I feel this is just going to majorly take away from here. That place has the "official" title. And new gaslight fans might be deterred from here because its just a "fan" forum. Oh well the admins and I will still do our best for you guys. If you ever need anything just ask we're always around. And I hope no members from here will jump ship just because the other one has the "official" title.

I know the people who will always stick around. You're awesome people High Five I've met some great friends and sang along with them at shows! This place has had a huge impact on my life and is the best forum out there.

DSS members forever!

That's awesome they endorsed us! And not half-heartedly either. I'll totally join the other one (who can pass up bootlegs) Also, gotta spy on the competition right? Just kidding.

But as long as people are on here I'd never abandon this site, the people here are just too awesome.

It's great to receive such praise from Brian, not least the bit about "really nice people" and about "for consistent and up to the minute stuff" - you know how many times you've read it here before anywhere else.

I wouldn't be so sure about Brian, but I know Benny does and he was pleased to see that we are keeping a lid on rips of commercial stuff. But yes, they are watching you ... Suspect

I'm so proud to be a member of that wonderful forum!

On another note: HOW on earth did I miss this thread?

I think it was really cool of Brian to mention DSS and say nice things about the forum and us. And while an "official" forum is probably a good thing for them to do, this place is way too much fun to leave and those of us how have been here for a while have formed too many friendships to just jump ship. That's how I feel anyway. Like Andrew said, DSS members forever! cheers

Yeah, I just read that ... it's cool that he supports us.

But, it makes sense I guess.

I love how Brian called himself a weirdo and a little bit of a hippie. That's just great! Razz

Obviously Brian was thinking of me specifically when he said nice people, but that was nice of him to make you guys feel included.
