So what perspective do you have anyway? (Also, please make sure to start a new discussion after the last one!) Sam Tally-ho! 03:39, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

I try to look at all of them, though that can be difficult. I usually end up centre-left and I have the trifecta of Atheism, Evolutionism and Liberalism. Man of Perspective (talk) 03:44, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

The Vinyl thing[edit]

It should also be noted that some prefer vinyls for the perceived craftmanship present, such as the larger cover for LP's and the presence of added extras within sleeves of many albums.

The key factor is that the old 12" sleeve was the perfect platform for rolling joints. The CD case, on the other hand, is perfect for lines of coke. But, yeah, those stupid little booklets cannot take the place of a proper gatefold sleeve with full lyrics, photos, biogs, the works. On the other hand, they were bloody heavy. Innocent Bystander (talk) 08:39, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

I can't say anything about the drugs, but, as an owner of all Coldplay vinyl LPs, nothing beats looking through the full size books and drawings. I've also found some lyrics to unpublished songs in a couple of areas. I own the mp4 files as well, but they obviously can't be displayed so well!

Oh jesus[edit]

an extra special place for Coldplay...' Oh dear lord. Acei9 00:54, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

I get that a lot... I'm sure we could find common ground. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 05:06, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
What are your views on The Cure, The Dirtbombs and Swedish Techno Label, Drumcode? Acei9 07:16, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
The Cure are pretty good, not keen on The Dirtbombs and haven't listened to anything from Drumcode, to be honest. Maybe you like the Arctic Monkeys or Kasabian? The only thing I really hate is Screamo Death Metal type things. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 10:08, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
No. More. Coldplay. Talk. Acei9 19:45, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Hahahahaha, well that's your opinion, even if it is wrong. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 23:05, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Anymore more Coldplay talk and you are going in the vandal bin. Acei9 23:09, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I have to take MoP's side on this one. Coldplay's awesome. Sam Tally-ho! 04:51, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

I think [User:Osaka Sun|Osaka Sun] would agree with us as well. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 05:12, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

You're a sysop[edit]

Guide. Good luck. Blue Talk 23:29, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 23:46, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I do apologise, I thought you were a sysop already hence my vague threats concerning musical choice. Sorry about that. Acei9 23:55, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Don't worry about it Ace. I suspected that, and, well, there are a damn lot of sysops round here. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 23:56, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Blocking[edit]

Dirk Steele is not a sysop so please don't block him for anything longer 30 mins (even then I would hesitate to block for that length). Acei9 02:15, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I'll take that on board. Though I think he should be banned... L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 02:26, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Good for you. Think away - but we don't ban for reasons like "because I think so". Acei9 02:38, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
That's why I didn't ban him, 9 hours isn't that much you know. (IMO) L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 02:39, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
It doesn't matter - we don't hand out blocks to non-sysops without good reason. Acei9 02:43, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay, okay, I thought him dicking about with Hamilton's essay was good reason, but we'll agree to disagree. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 02:45, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
for which he was told not to and he agreed he wouldn't any longer. Handing out a nine hour block isn't what is done. So lets say you agree with me. There's a good boy - have a treat. Acei9 02:47, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Not to pile on here (welcome to the wiki by the way) but him dicking around with an essay was definitely NOT a good reason for a 9 hour ban.Tielec01 (talk) 02:54, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I see the site policy now, so I think I'll just leave it to you guys. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 02:57, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Dirk has an opinion on music, and needs to swear often to make his point[edit]

I have listened to your electronic music and think it is shit schoolboy bedroom wanking dick sucking crap. Sorry. Dirk Steele (talk) 03:22, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I told him to listen to Drumcode for electronica. Acei9 03:25, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Garageband? Ha! He has yet to try DP. With any girl. You should hear my stuff.. just me fucking a Martin. Sounds gay I know but ... Dirk Steele (talk) 03:26, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Hey, I like it, and I don't really care what you think. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 03:40, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I am sure you do. Just try not to inflict it on the rest of us who maintain certain minimal musical standards. ok? Ta. --Dirk Steele (talk) 03:57, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm fairly sure that you clicked the link. L'homme de la Perspective Discuser? 03:58, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
You made me waste seven seconds of my life with that shit. Thanks a bunch. Dirk Steele (talk) 04:02, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Just kidding ya. Your music sounds very sensitive and reflects the person you are. Dickhead. Dirk Steele (talk) 04:04, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Rise Up Australia Party[edit]

Just making sure, but you're going to add to that policy section, right? Sam Tally-ho! 01:14, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

I will, I will. Just got interrupted by something a bit more important while constructing it.L'homme de la Perspective Discusez? 02:23, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
No worries, just wanted to make sure. Sam Tally-ho! 02:30, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Your sig[edit]

Should probably be Homme de perspectif with discutez (although discuter, the infinitive, would work well- depends what you're trying to get across). Assuming you're going for French, and not a similar language I'm unfamiliar with.--"Shut up, Brx." 01:40, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Shit. I always thought L'homme was one of those strange words that should be masculine but was feminine... Also I think it would be "du Perspectif" as opposed to "de Perspectif" As for discusez/discutez, I'm clearly retarded. That's been my sig for a couple of months now. L'homme de la Perspective Discusez? 09:36, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
Well, "du" and "de" is the difference between "of" and "of the." If you want to use du, then you should go with "perspective." But that would still sound really weird (can't tell you if it's grammatically incorrect, though). And "l'homme" is just a contraction of "le homme." Definitely masculine.--"Shut up, Brx." 11:34, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I realise that now! Anyway, changed my sig completely... The Invisible ManI spoke to Him 21:01, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Actually it's not that bad[edit]

After all, you're consistently in the top 2 for human development and for a country your size you have a thriving industry. Give yourselves a little credit :P Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 05:16, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
