I don't come on here much these days (for various reasons) so i'm not aware of the politics Neil ... but ... what i would say is that if you've got the time, passion and resources then please keep it going - in my early days of internet this was one of the first places i headed to and made loads of friends through it at a time when OMD, were well and truly in the wilderness.

An alternative voice from the "official forum" is needed more now then ever ... (imo) I don't mean anything underhand by that statement btw.

Take care all and promise to choon in more often, i think you should even reinstate the Sunday evening chat room!!

P x

ps remember the SMBW forum you ran too  


Hello flower, long time, no see...!!! Hope all is well with you, and I agree with all that you said!!!

It's a pitty ro read this. And in fact I don't know what's going on exactly. I was an active member on the official forum from 2004 till 2008. And when things went a bit "loony" there I was welcome on Neils forum. I would like to thank Neil for that. When tension was rising, I could always trust on his listening ear. During 2008 I lost interest in both forums.

There was the good news of OMD reforming in the old line up. OMD touring again. Making a new record. But after the 2007 comeback tour much of the fun was over. The new album took a lot of time ro write, record and release. And I'm not that kind of a Night of the Proms fan. Much of the talk on the official forum is anything but in depth anymore. Something I regret. I don't know how things went on Neils forum the last two years. But sad news to hear how he feels about it.

In 2008 I found another music forum where one can discuss all kinds and types of bands. I wrote a few hundred reviews ... in Dutch ... on that forum. I'm enjoying myself there. Not much time left for the OMD forums anymore. Maybe the new album will bring some of the interest back. Never say never. This forum had the right name: Motion and Heart. Not so "official" as the "official". Over here there was room for some emotion, a little tear, some grief and joy.

cheers, dazzler.


Hey Dazzler, as you know we have always been relaxed here... Strange to see the <official> forum going un moderated now and the problems that go with it.  

Going back to May and what I said... and I know that many still will not have a clue.. but I said

I will still be around, and will still do an update from time to time, but as stated above “In the official OMD land, the lunatics have taken over the asylum”

Whoa.  I know I'm (regrettably) very out of touch - which I hope to remedy soon! - but I don't notice any lunatics at the official site . . . in fact, I don't see ANYTHING at the Official Site . . . . nothing comes up at http://www.omd.uk.com . . . Is it being upgraded?  Wasn't PaulB going to launch a new site for Messages?  It seems like it was up just a few weeks ago when I popped in to say Hi . . .

At any rate, three cheers for the Motion & Heart Forums!

Looks like the Offrical OMD website has some problems or a server outage at the moment. I am sure it will be back on line soon...

From memory, the Official site also got hacked, the forum, the last time there was a launch...

One thing Andy is right about - more new people have been posting recently, when the Official forum stopped being dominated by a certain few...


Onwards and upwards...
