    Nightwish Forum Awards 2013

    I have a bone to pick with Ms Angel Heart. We're were rules stating I could not vote myself? Hmmmmmmm??? I don't think so! (Unless there were and I just didn't read it) so you could totally discount my self votes but to be honest, I only voted for myself when I totally deserved to win it. My name pic and sig has otters and NOTHING beats otters. If it does, it's stupid and doesn't deserve life. And next year Serious Sam will get blondest poster from me for not realising in the votes that I am in actual fact, not a male. Seriously, you stick around for like, 6-7 years and people still don't know you...nutty nutty world

    Yayyyy!! Instagram buddies! Its really really weird that I was feeling the exact same the other day...like, talking to people here was always more different to how it is on FB. Like here you don't get interrupted by your RW friends saying stupid things in the middle of you and your NW friends having super fun happy joking times.

    Anette Olzon

    Jeeze. Anyone would have thought hell had frozen over. Oh look at that, hell is still stinking hot. The split with Anette was inevitable. She came into a highly established band and had to step into the shoes of a "goddess". The formula of the band totally changed, including the fact that it was no longer 100% a Finnish band. There is no point denying it, Anette was NOT treated nicely by a huge chunk of NW fans out there. It is actually incredibly disgusting the way some fans spoke about her, treated her, threatened her (including some people with prominence within the fan community who should have known better than flush their supposed professionalism down the drain). It was a sensitive time for her to step into the band and she did not have enough professional experience to handle it. And the guys really didn't know how to handle it either. Thing going downhill for the Anette era I think, would have fallen apart. The fans still could not accept her and get over it, and no one handled it well. She had the right to feel pissed off when she realised she would be "replaced" and lose her source of income. I think most people would freak out. And no one likes being replaced. Its also sad that STILL in this day and age, a woman can not have a child without being financially set back. She had the right to speak out about what happened, personally, I don't know who to totally believe. I wasn't there, I won't know the truth so whatever. I wasn't impressed by the NW statement, it was a tad immature and bitchy sounding, not what I expect from a statement by the band. Anyways, I think NW is in a good place, I think Anette is moving on, I just don't think either parties had cause to blow this out of proportion, but drama is drama is NW. Floor works so well with the band because she is more like "one of the guys" (something very helpful in a metal band) and she is professional and experienced. NW couldn't have had a well established singer step in after Tarja, but now, it works. I just hope that both parties involved like, get over it? Wow, i'm fatigued by NW drama, maybe hell has frozen over?

    Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire series

    SooooooooI just heard GRRM read 2 chapters of Winds of Winter. They were super strict and you weren't allowed phones or anything in there for recording. It was so epic. To hear him read it. One of the bestest things ever in the history of things.

    The Troy thread

    Because he's awesome. Thats why. So pfft on you
  11. em_j_ottermaster

    The Troy thread

    XD What is it with you and Troy's soft hands... Anyway, I'm super happy to have him as an official member. I didn't used to have a "favourite member of NW" (well, except maybe Marco's Beard) but now I definitely do! He's from Cumbria and plays pipes and whistles and other things and is awesome and from Cumbria When you get the chance to shake his hand, you'll be as amazed as I was. How someone can have hands THAT soft, is beyond me.

    The Floor thread

    When Nightwish brought Sabaton out here (Australia) for a couple shows, that worked brilliantly, and shock, Sabaton isn't female fronted! I don't really like the idea at all of lumping one female fronted metal band with another for a tour. I prefer similar styled bands, or bands with friends/members in common, like NW & Sonata Artica, or if NW was to tour with ReVamp, although, I would rather experience ReVamp as ReVamp only not "Hey, here is that other band that Floor sings in after NW" because I think ReVamp deserves more than that, and that would be too much vocal duty for Floor as well. And I totally agree with Snowhite's post. I find lumping female fronted (metal bands, in this case) bands into one group based solely on the gender of the singer, not only totally sexist and insulting as females that they can only find themselves recognised in a musical genre based purely on gender. Also, it's totally insulting to the bands themselves, that their only "marketable" aspect is the gender of the singer. I don't mind the metal female voices festival because it seems more "celebratory" of women in metal (who can face a lot of sexism from other metal fans/bands) and that women are just as capable of creating awesome music. BUT lumping female fronted bands together is just stupid. Wooowww that rant was a little OTT....

    The Troy thread

    Wellllllll the fact that he is so heavily involved with NW and has been for the past few years, I don't think he'll just be off to the side, I think he'll be a lot more musically involved, but most likely only with his on instruments. He's already heard some of the new album stuff anyway, so he's been just as involved and included in the band as the other guys I'm sure. And he is super nice and super awesome and super talented and has super soft hands.

    Contacting the Mods

    Hi mods, So, when I access the forum from home, I use Google Chrome and its always logged in, no problems or anything. I sometimes log in at work on Firefox, and even if i tick the "keep me logged in" box, it won't keep me logged in, and i'll have to keep logging in every time i look at a different topic (mostly in the speakers corner) or want to post something (it comes up with the error message saying I don't have permission to do that action,as in, looking in the speakers corner or posting). I have no idea why this is happening, do you guys know what might be going on? Is there a problem with viewing the forum on firefox?
