Being as you're still here Jordan, I wonder whether you can help me out?

Was my mention of Colin B in this context an Off-Topic remark or a Personal Attack....I can't work it out.

This is my first post and introduction to this board.

My name is Niels, male, 28 years old and born in the Netherlands.
Although I should be from the CD generation, I spent the better part of my money collecting world wide vinyl.
The labels, cover variations, the happy hunting... I love it!

I've been enjoying the postings, knowledge and facts available here.
I've seen pictures making me drewl (or how do you spell this?) and read about songs preformed i'd never heard of!

I am looking forward meeting you all on this board and although I'm a youngster, a small collector, I hope
to be able to make a good contribution every now and then!

Best Wishes,

Niels

Welcome!

I LOVE your avatar.

Being as it's the chat talk section
AND:
AFAIK, in the context you wrote it - Neither.
Unless of course, you think otherwise :shock:

(it was obviously a joke.. I'm not THAT dense.)

Now you've got me all confused.

Was the joke the fact that I asked you for clarification or the fact that I mentioned Colin B?

No need for a bad tempered response.

If you don't know the answer, just say so...irony is obviously not your forte...no shame in that.

Mike - "it was obviously a joke" - was referring to your Colin B. statement..

But.....You obviously knew that.

Feigning ignorance is clearly not your forte.

Oh! The irony.

:lol: :lol:

Not bad....still needs a bit of work though.

Feigning ignorance IS my forte, but only when necessary in an ironical context...vive la difference?

And Niels' avatar loves you right back!! :)

Yo, Niels! Look forward to seeing you post out on the All Elvis Section soon.

Don't let Mike and his freakish obsession with the guidelines put you off. Most of us are not so C-R-A-Z-Y. :smt106 :smt103

It has come to my attention that a few members seem to be having problems confusing irony with rank sh*t stirring.

For a trial period of one month, starting at Midnight(x) tonight ALL irony is banned for the greater good.

Outrageous behaviour! Impersonating PEP and having a dig at Jordan....all in the same post.

Someone should introduce a new guideline to outlaw this kind of behaviour. (sorry Niels)

Any similarity to another's posting style is purely coincidental, ya sh*t stirrer!!

Well Niels, as you can see, we've pulled out all the stops to welcome you on board and give you a foretaste of the pleasures to come. As Bigredg says, we look forward to seeing you in the All Elvis section in short order.

A final tip if I may. New members are often worried about starting their own threads in case they don't attract many replies, so it's probably best to pick something uncontroversial to start off with. Something like: Is it about time Elvis In Concert was released? or the evergreen: How many feel Sherrill Nielsen was underrated? Both of these are extremely popular topics and guaranteed to win you new friends in no time.

All that remains is for me to wish you the best of luck. Have fun!

LOL !

Well, if 'irony' is banned, how about its near-cousin 'sarcasm' ?

If that's banned too, I might as well give up posting.........................

We will seriously be considering banning sarcasm, dependent on how the trilal on irony goes.
