    I was just looking at the official site and saw these two people Voodoo and EruptionMan being berated on the pleasuredome message board by a bunch of losers, because they were speaking the truth. I have been a member of the VHLinks since 1999 and though i dont post much i have seen plenty of other van halen message boards and they just don't compare to this one...yeah in May i bought my own freaking vhlinks tshirt and am proud of being a longtime member of this board. What these two guys were saying was totally right on the money...the people on this board are so much more knowledgeable in not only van halen but basically everything that goes on in the world.
    I'm not trying to start some petty fight between boards but the dome does not even come close to comparing with the Links. We have had plenty of frank knowledgeable dissagreements about van halen without resorting to the name calling that goes on at the Dome. Personally i can't stand SoCalSheila or whatever her name is and that dude in Japan...i think they are moderators over there. I have seen people disagree with those two and they immediately start with the name calling or other bullshit, or even when people are joking around these two members straight out of the Message Board Gestapo ban them...its like get a life. Let people have fun with the band...for the love of christ they havent said a word in over a year.
    I kind of feel bad for brett if people are not posting here just because the Dome is up...Honestly if you really want to have good discussion on sorts of subjects not only van halen stay on this board and stop posting on the Dome for the faint hope of recieving tickets for the big reunion show.

    Not to sound condescending, but i'm proud of both Voodoo and EruptionMan.

    You can't replicate the atmosphere we have here. Simple as that.

    I don't read there often, and I think I've posted twice. The colors are dumb, and that makes it irritating to read for me.

    One thing that I get a kick out of is people saying "but it's Official!" Officially not giving anyone anything is a better way to put it.

    I'm just disappointed in Brad. He's obviously got some resources to play with, and instead of making that information available to the fans, he duplicates something that's already being done. And being done well.

    I'm not saying he can tell us what's going on (who's to say he knows?). After all, a website is a marketing tool, and Brad's contact is most likely a marketing person, not the band. But don't mention that, because it's "official."

    I'd like to see van-halen.com become the source for VH rarities. Sound clips, trivia (that you can look up, instead of one a day shit), and things that would interest fans. Interviews.

    Van Halen has a pretty lame web site.

    Most bands' official sites aren't that hot. Their main purpose is to be one big marketing engine - nothing more, nothing less. Nothing amazingly useful.

    It's got some good stuff, though...lyrics, a few photos, etc. And while the message board is overrun by...er...interesting people, at least you don't have to be part of a fan club to see the board, unlike Metallica...whose site is about useless for anyone who hasn't paid their MetClub dues.

    While Van Halen's official site isn't the greatest in the world, it's a helluva lot better than a lot of the other ones out there.

    Yeah, but you know how we feel about mediocre Van Halen. They're the best, and their website should reflect that. It's a shame that the folks that run the show don't think that way.

    Welcome back Icecream-man! I remember you from the very early days at the Links.


    I agree with everything you said. I don't like the PD either.

    well.....

    I've been posting at the Dome lately


    and I'm sure alot of people that say "that place sux this place rocks.. no it's the other place, blah blah blah" all post on the all the boards

    I look at this place, the dome, and the army as just one big board,, it's not like i have to catch an airplane to go to each one of the sites--it's just click and wa-la

    there are cliques at all the boards

    hell= I helped start the mother of all cliques

    things happened back in the day --but I'm trying to put it all under the bridge.

    but I see sour grapes here and at the army and it's sad to me

    then

    I see people at the Dome bashin' this board and the other and that pisses me off too.

    at the Dome it's Jan. 2000

    many people over there start the same threads that were played out here long ago

    I can't help it if I don't like sammy , guys.
    I'm opinionated, but I try to keep it real.

    some of you know my story, some of ya don't--
    and If I'm walkin' by myself, or wearing/dropping/picking-up-again a certian tagline or posting as a "masked crime fighter" to me it's all just one big UBB-- that Brett did help those guys start.

    I battled with alot of people here last year, but I came to respect alot of youz guys.

    let's not have sour grapes and bash the other boards=====It's all good

    and to quote Glenn from Altamont "People, people who's fighting and what for? let's just get it together"

    As far as "official" sites go, van-halen.com isn't that great. One thing I like is the list of every show ever played. Other things the've messed around with, and the various Benefits Ed has played at. And a few of the pics. Everything else kinda sucks. Give us some rare audio or video. Maybe stuff from these various benefits. That'd be cool.

    I think the best "official" site out there (VH related) is www.redrocker.com. That site is great. Full concerts (at least 3 or 4 of them), interview audio and video, pictures from alot of shows on his current tour. Sure the concerts are recorded at a low khz, but it is still full shows you can play from your computer. I think it's great.

    redrocker.com is a great site - I downloaded the Right Now video from there.

    Hey, I wonder whatever came of Brad's Van Halen Encyclopedia long ago.
