A lot more than eight, I'll be bound.

Probably be able to make even more if Skope could drag himself away from coming all heavy manners on
those entering and leaving the local butchers' shop.

In the 96 hours between 9am on 28 Sept and 9am this morning, there were actually 79 new posts in the music section of Preludin - some of them quite long, interesting and/or amusing ones :-) – in ten different threads: I just counted them. I might be a few out either way, but, as of this moment, guests can still view all threads in the Music section, so anyone who wishes to can check and correct me.

Also, there are no aliases on the board (well, I have a couple, but I haven't used either in weeks). Some may post there under different names from the ones they use over here, but then again, some people here change them from time to time, don't they? and there are a few members who've never been BCBers.

I like the part about no aliases. As if Coan wasn't the king of aliases here.

It's the simple truth, Matt. John changes his avatar all the time, as he did/does here, but he only has one account. As an admin, I can check this sort of thing really easily.
I'm not recruiting or trying to change anyone's mind. The two boards are different. I'm happy with the way preludin is now, and to check in on BCB and keep my photo thread running. I just want to put the record straight: fake news, you know.
Anyway, you can and will and maybe should distrust anything you hear coming from skope or JC, but I hope you've known me long enough to know that I don't do lies, especially when I sign my name to it.

Personally, I'd never go into a rage about posts on another forum, nor do I care about hidden threads or other non interesting things. Hopefully, this won't set a precedent and we won't become a bacon .. err .. beacon for hens crossing the road.

Wait a minute, Ray. Are you seriously telling us Coan never had an alias here at BCB?

I don't think he's saying that. And as he's not an admin here, I doubt he'd claim it.

I am an admin and will say that any aliases he's used here have been the most blatant, obvious ones, and you don't have to be an admin to figure them out. Has he 'hid behind' an alias? Maybe, but I haven't seen it.

Not saying that to defend anyone, just to be upfront. Just like Ray doesn't do lies, I don't do 'loyalty.' Not to a dang message board, anyway.

Some points need to be clairified: I never said Coan did have aliases at Preludin, but he sure had them here. He has more aliases than probably any other BCBer I can think of. So to promote Preludin in a positive light because there are no aliases when the board was started by the alias king is the height of irony. If you don't see, then that's not my problem, but it's there.

No. I have nothing to say about that. He only has one account on preludin. Sorry about the ambiguity. I thought you were questioning my statement earlier about there being no aliases on preludin, a response to an even earlier suggestion by another poster that there were, and that they were somehow being used to deceive about the amount of activity on the preludin music board.

I tried posting the explanation above immediately after your reply, once I'd realized the misunderstanding, but it wouldn't post because of an SQL error, whatever that is, although I suspect it has something to do with squirrels, so I went and cooked dinner.
As I said, I wasn't promoting anything, just correcting someone who was sneering.

I take issue with the "more aliases than any other BCBer" statement, but it may just be a simple matter of interpretation. I tend to think of multiple aliases as meaning, by definition, multiple accounts. Coan certainly changed board names often, but as far as having separate accounts? He's not even in the top ten. And, like I said, not exactly under heavy cloaking.

I heard he rapped with Stryper. But I was in the next room with a glass held to my ear.

Surely you mean "trying and failing to correct"?

Far from "sneering", I was merely countering Coan and Skope's increasingly pathetic attempts to shore up their board now the initial novelty has worn off.

Interesting how BCBers formerly deemed untouchable have mutated into valuable commodities now preludin posters - including your good self - have slowly but surely started to drift back here.

Like you, I am not a liar or purveyor of "fake news". FWIW, the figures I quoted in my earlier post on this thread reflected the times and names that I saw on the main music page of Preludin yesterday morning.

Unlike yourself, I have neither admin rights at Coan's site or the time or inclination to count every post made on every thread over there. Short of justifying the figures you claim we'll just have to do the gentlemanly thing and agree to disagree.

The idea that neither Coan or Skope use aliases is frankly risible, btw.

As is your board founder's claim that the occasionally annoying but essentially harmless Dr Markus has become a regular Preludin poster following the mean-spirited way Coan hounded him off BCB about a year ago.
