Default The Lounge appears to have disappeared

Is this just me, or did Viscofisy finally come back with his band of Scots pirates and kidnap the whole lounge? Has there been a ransome note yet?

Gave up on The Lounge years ago. Not that anything should be moderated here, but having an unmoderated anything goes forum is wishful thinking.

Did you logout then back in or lose the lounge cookie, because if so, you won't see lounge posts in "new posts" or searches etc. I know it's there, I passed through last night.

... Because you have to manually go to /lounge and login to the lounge separately....

Yep, disappeared for me too. Unless I go via my user cp and find a post from there.

Looks like it's become invisible, or is about to vanish forever.

No great loss either way.

Looks like it's missing from the "forum list" but it's there based on my link above so maybe just less visible. If it goes away, not loss to me but there will be a handful of users out in the cold - because that's they only place they really post IIRC. I haven't been there in forever until last night....

Was it something I said?

I'd say less bitter and spiky than usual, of late.

What's wrong with cat videos??



I posted a simple little Ab blues thing on the on the music collaboration section of the forum, I'd appreciate hearing your suggestions on the mix. Don't worry about hurting my feelings.

They seem to be killing off the community aspect of Reaper, trying to turn it into something as sterile as a kvr forum

Default lounge and life replacement

Hi there!

Sorry if this is redundant but it has a different bent.

I never really liked the lounge. I stopped going there for the most part with the exception of a thread made in desperation that I didn't want to be publicly searchable.

lovely people there, for sure - but just didn't like the vibe. So I didn't go in.

However, I find that this community is very important to me - Reaper.exe isn't only what I like about Reaper.

It has been 14 years since I've been here. I have dedicated lots of time to personal discussion here, because I care about this forum and I care about the people in here - I value their opinions even on non-audio stuff.

I know I've caused trouble in the past and I know I make a lot of threads at times. I appreciate the patience people have had with me here. I've said it before, my life has changed significantly since being here.

You all were here for me being in a cult, me being kicked out of the cult. From NYS to Montreal to NYS back to PA, recovery, college, marriage, news of sterility, divorce, and here we are.

Ya'll have seen me through some personal shit. My depression, my successes, the things that I love.

I want to be able to make posts like this to this community. My posts in personal matters are not necessarily political, and not any more divisive than other threads outside of the lounge. They are in many ways positive.

I am asking for some kind of subforum group where we can talk about working on guitars, learning a new instrument, a personal question, etc...

What gets in the way of this now is the removal from "life" from the general discussion forum, and the removal of the lounge entirely.

Can we please have some other forums?

I am not going to follow this thread because it's not an argument. This is merely an inquiry, and I know the mods/admins will probably see it so it's my statement to them. People who I respect and am thankful for their work.

Thanks everyone

Also if anyone wants to add me on facebook, it's literally the same as my username here, because when i was in a cult, I decided since the world was going to end, who cares if I put my full name everywhere and destroy my potential for privacy?

A big and slightly bemused +1 for that from me. Not only for the sort of personal response that you mention but also how often - nearly always actually - I see the community go beyond expectations in offering help, support and encouragement. In these rather bleak times it is for me, a flower growing on a rubbish heap. The devs should also get some credit!

I agree with Jay/Jae here. I too have been through some rough stuff over the last 7 years & am still wrestling with some of it. It IS good to have a place where you can connect with people that you already have a relationship with via music, which to me has always been my main language.
Sadly, the lounge also seemed to attract a rather high percentage of people who just wanted to ram their opinions whether right or wrong down everyone elses throats without allowing for any filtering other than the ignore button.

But I too am unsure how we could actually get back to a kinder place... I consider a lot of the folks I know on here as old friends, even if we have never met "in teh flesh". I would hate to lose contact.

Only now are we seeing the true extent of the damage this brood of vipers has wrought upon the meek and pure of heart. As traumatized survivors trickle in and painfully re-live the harrowing experiences they were subjected to in the den of iniquity so innocently, innocuously, and misleadingly called the 'Lounge'..

...and where else can I go when I want half of the threads to turn into two-person, never-ending discussions about Julian Assange?

Here's a good place for that:

https://www.reranch.com/reranch/

I used to spend a lot of time refinishing old strats years ago when I had a garage.

Actually a great forum for stuff like that, some of the people there do some really awesome work, builds from scratch, including acoustic guitars, pretty cool actually.

The one thing I wont miss is the interminable discussion of US politics ALL the time. Yay!

Now all we need to do is get rid of Boris and they might let the lounge sneak back in under the guise of something like "cool new recipes to try whilst you are waiting for your plugins to scan"....
