category: general [glöplog]
aaaaaaaaaand do something with the loud music, bp orgas next time, please...

when i wrote about this the orgas were like "which line exactly are the playing with loudspeakers?" come on, it was funny! :D they were playing soooo loud (even all the night) so it was very easy to aim them from the other end of hall... and i saw many orgas walking around and doing nothing about that so i made conlusion they want it that way...

If you can't stand loud music, don't come to a demoparty!

Fucking hell, what are people gonna ask next? A daycare center, floor heating, 4 course dinners, escort service?

4 course dinner - currywurst, pizza, pasta and beer. I think that's already arranged :)

But as far as the loud noise goes, I have to agree. Apparently I have more hearing left than most people, but for me it was actually physically painful to sit in the VIP area during the awards because of the volume level. I can sort of understand that during the concerts, but...

okkie, if you wanna listen to loud music stay at home and let your loudspeakers blow you away = you don't have to be at a demoparty then.

preacher, yeah.

and about the noise: i'm fine when someone plays few chiptunes, for example... they were playing SHITMUSIC all the time, extremely loud - two different things i think...

Why are you discussing loud music in the ripping-thread?
added on the 2007-04-17 12:29:00 by kusma kusma
because this discussion is pure OT since page 3...
added on the 2007-04-17 12:31:54 by nula nula
another OT: *any* demoparty should be free for girls.

women are fighting for equality for so many years, and men just want free entrance for them just to watch their boobs
what about courtesy ? :p

nah seriously guardian those facts are true but there is another fact like many girls usually come rather as visitors than competitors and that's not fair and pretty stupid to make them fly away... but this fact may be refuted in parties which make pay everybody equally in so far as the only few girls actually present are the ones competing or organizing...

Nobody forces them to attend a demoparty. If they do, they should pay like everyone else does.

StingRay: no wonder parties with such a mentality make them flee :/

i've experienced that demo or lan parties with a smaller entrance fee dedicated to visitors-only or better, free for girls, have a far less testosteronic ambiance...

If they just want to watch such events they can as well watch a video capture of the party to get an impression. Then they can still decide if they want to attend or not. And if they attend, they should pay, what makes them so special that they shouldn't pay? Boobs only can't be a valid argument...

zest: did you notice any testosteronic ambiance at BP this year?

time for you to STFU methinks

nula: Really? When scrolling back, I see mostly discussions about the compo rules with regards to re-releasing and ripping. That's highly on topic.

Letting in girls for free is very demeaning to them. It's like saying "please come in for free for our enjoyment". It's a thing about equality. One should consider female sceners as sceners in the first place, not just as a couple of boobs to look at.
Besides, girls that like demoparties will come, even when they have to pay an entrance-fee.

ok let's be pragmatical about a the concrete issue of... girlfriends :p

what if they want to visit their scener boyfriends only for an afternoon or 2 ? and same prob with boyfriends of scener girls.

added on the 2007-04-17 13:32:24 by Zest Zest
or girlfriends of scener girls, or boyfriends of scener boys. Am i enough politically-correct ? :)
added on the 2007-04-17 13:34:06 by Zest Zest
There were girlfriends of sceners at BP07, and they payed the entrance-fee nontheless. Why make the exception? They have equal rights to make use of the party-features.

and .. eh .. arrange a meeting for 2 in a separate room?

why would you think any girlfriend would take a fucking long distance just to visit their bf?

* during a party that is. =)

yeah that concern is prolly less accurate for super international parties like breakpoint, i was thinking about more local lan parties :p
added on the 2007-04-17 13:41:03 by Zest Zest
Well, this is not really the best place for discussing lanparties, really.
added on the 2007-04-17 13:42:26 by DJefke DJefke
but seriously it could be cool to sell full tickets with a free visitor ticket, and *identifiable* so that security concern is respected.
