    About the "tagging members in posts" function

    When you use the @username n/a function, a space is automatically added. If you use backspace to remove this space, the @ doesn't work. A bit annoying if you want to use the name right before a comma or a period. After all, we all want proper punctuation, don't we? (If my idea that removing...

    Which Maiden song contains your favourite scream?

    Paul had some. Bruce had a lot. Blaze wisely didn't try to replicate them very often. Those vocal parts that transfer the horror of Killers, the despair of The Number of the Beast or the relief when that poor mariner finally feels the rain coming down. Which one is your favourite? Since I'm...

    A language question for those of you whose native language is English

    In my job I sometimes have to make documentation like user manuals. The review of one such manual contains a comment which might or might not be correct. The issue is that of listing several words. One place in the text, I write "Critical temperature and pressure", meaning "Critical temperature...

    The cover that should not be

    We all have some cover songs we hate, don't we? Here is a list of 10 abominations. Any physical medium containing any of those should be shredded to pieces and sunk in the ocean. http://www.thevine.com.au/music/news/top-10-_-worst-cover-songs.aspx The obvious follow-up question is: What cover...

    Some real madness

    New (post-FOTD) live staples in future tours?

    As we all know, Fear of the Dark has been nearly ever-present since it first was played. Some other songs are also played on nearly every tour. But what do people think, will any 2000s songs join FOTD, Hallowed, and the other ever-presents in future setlists? And if so, which ones? People...

    Your impending doom, Judas Priest style

    You are gonna die, no doubt about that, but who would you rather have doing it? Inspired by this SMX poll. The Ripper: Well, if you are walking a dark London street he might surprise ya. Never turn your back on The Ripper! Tyrant: Tyrants have a tendency to kill people, don't they? Especially...

    Spam in personal message inbox?

    I just found a message in my inbox stating a virus had been detected in my computer. It included a link. I thought the entire thing was stinking of old fish, so I ignored the link and deleted the message. I just wonder, have any others experienced the same lately? PS: I just noticed the same...

    Maiden's darkest song?

    We already have discussions going on about the heaviest and least heavy song. But what do people thing are the darkest songs Maiden have done? I think both lyrically and musically. Obviously, many would jump to The X Factor, or to some of the newer war-related songs like Paschendale. However...

    Your favourite short Maiden song?

    Just for fun, I sorted all Maiden's studio tracks by length. If we set the limit at 3:30, we get 13 songs. Choose the two you like best. My favourites here are: Judas Be My Guide. This fast and quite furious rocker from Fear of the Dark is too underrated. I think the melody is very catchy and...

    Godwin's Law - a discussion

    I'll use the following quote from Perun as a starting point. Now, part I of Godwin's law simply states that as an internet discussion goes on, the probability of somebody making a reference to Hitler or the Nazis will approach 1. Especially for political discussions, I find this to be close to...
