I personally think the forum would benefit from swifter moderation regarding the troublemakers who are negative about any of Ringo's releases. In what way do they contribute to a safe experience for everyone browsing the forum?

If we were to guide them along to to other websites then only the positive members would remain and there would be no disagreement and a really upbeat attitude would result in even more new members who wouldn't be scared to post about Ringo.

I mean we get it, some folk want it to be 2003 forever, but for the younger, more open generation who occupy the digital space nowadays, we'd rather focus on the stuff that makes us happy.


Something to think about.

It's true that this form has kind of a negative reputation and it probably does scare off the newer fans. But I don't like the idea of censoring people's legitimately held opinions either.

I'd be surprised if there's actually that many new fans who would even think about coming to a dedicated forum to discuss anything. Social media and Discord have really eaten up the potential scope for new victims. The JPS Ringo thread is hella quiet as well and that's more capable of pulling some stragglers on other business in for a look. What we need is a MONSTER album! So many anons flooding the place way back every time an album came out as though there was going to be a MEGA link for it or something on the main page! Ayyy! A hot release will fix everything.

Wow! I didn't expect that opinion whatsoever! People not liking something is in no way grounds for moderation. (I mean, think of me!) I get that some people tend to be predictable. If anything, I've noticed how forumites go through phases where they like stuff and dislike stuff. And that's kinda cool. Every piece of criticism has come from a fan'sb point of view. Maybe a legit, "I hate the topic of this forum full stop" type troll would be a different matter. That's definitely an exception to the norm.


(And maybe i just woke up, but weren't you just criticizing the song, Bongo? )

I think Bingo's earlier comment was tongue in cheek.

I do have mod permissions, but will likely never encounter a situation that warrants my employing them.

Bongo is just going through that occasional short period of time that he loses focus on hatin and reassesses everything. Ringo knows this and times her releases accordingly. Hence why the blu ray is just about to arrive!

If I wasn't lazy I would have quoted his last post as Ringo~Bingo (ver.1) to make things clearer

Now that I think about it I only started to be more active here when Ringo started being lame
So there is a slight possibility you people wouldn't be my internet family if Ringo were always impeccably good

Shiina Ringo just added OVEN MITTS, APRONS and FREEZER BAGS to her tour goods.

I'm not even joking.

Remember when that was a joke lol

This is the same woman who wrote Sigma, right.

Now she's falling back in line and back into the kitchen. Ouch. That's soul crushing.
