I commented on the first three he posted last night--always like to be encouraging to new members. I thought about suggesting that he slow down on the postings (if nothing more than to increase the chance someone will comment), and I should have. Woke up this morning and saw 8 more posts. Oh, well, he'll learn, as we all do.

Regards,

Deej

Wonder what planet he's from... LOL! Thanks, Colin... for all you do to help Brian keep the site such a great place for us. Hope the band was busy "gigging" this last weekend... ringing the register and keeping you guys in pocket change.

All the best, ----Dave

So what's the matter?

That he's new?
The he posted 11 at once?
Or both?

I'm relatively new here and trying to learn what I can here.

The general rule used to be post 1 item a day on the lyric forums or 1 on each of them.
That was when the forums were very busy forum 3 was created to take the load off the other two

There used to be probably ten or more lyric writers posting a different lyric each day. Forum 3 became the most popular and generally a good lyric could get 30 plus comments.

Maybe he can't pick a favorite, and wants to show what's he's been up to before coming here.

I used to be like that, I'd want people to have a few to soak in, in case any one of them sucks.

Maybe nobody is stepping in the lyric section because lyrics alone bore people, nobody reads any more, very doubtful they read books or poetry or lyrics, and also, that anybody and the mother is a lyricist.

if you are on the forum long enough, you will see more lyrics than you care to entertain.

Yes there's certainly a lot of lyrics around, some good ones too that'll never make it to the song stage. This is where sites like this come In.
I started posting lyrics in the hope someone would like them enough to do collabs. It took time but eventually it happened
To be honest the guy in question writes well, good luck to him.But like a lyric there has to be a structure in place so it's not counter productive

The weird thing is that we actually get more site traffic than ever before and set the all time record last march of over 1500 people on at one time... but they are just readers... people don't like reading or writing more than a sentence these days... times have changed... but we've seen a nice pick up in traffic in 2018 already so maybe we can snare a few folks. And there's no set rule on how many lyrics you can post beyond splitting them up equally on each board but usually a friendly board user will let new folks know they are unlikely to get feedback beyond one or two lyrics and are much better off critiquing other lyrics for a bit before posting to build up good will with the existing natives.

Perhaps Brian has a large basement he keeps them in. Then every so often they escape running screaming onto the boards franctically leaving comments lol
Of course this could be my vivid imagination.

It is said he has drum set(s) and other musical noise makers down there so it might not be so bad.

We have 20K or more visitors every day, sometimes 50K. But they are not registered and so they can't post comments. Snaring simply means getting more of them to register.
