If Brian wanted, this could end up being THE bunnymen forum

Tired of discussing the Bunnymen and all the bands that have been influenced by them? This is the place for you.

Didn't he bugger off with the Paypal account? To be fair though, I thought he ran the site very well.

It's going to feel wierd to be able to express thoughts freely that's for sure.
I agree, it was totally unneccessary to take down the whole forum.
I am not quite sure what happened that made them feel that they had to do that.
I think this can and will be a successful forum for the reasons that Jack stated as well. This IS the resource for Bunnymen fans.

Hey brian, you should buy out the bunnymen concert log guy. That would really fit in well with the rest of the content here.

Aah another forum to join! Great stuff Brian.

I was surprised by the other forum being taken off air. I had no idea what went on.

There are certain gripes with the Bunnymen website. Namely, it lacks content. Other than the forum there isn't much on there. This one has alot more info. I don't like the design of the official site either. But I guess as the webmaster does it for free, it'd take up alot of his time if he was producing loads of stuff for it.

According to Peter, it turns out shutting down the website is a great traffic generator! Who knew?

Nah, not really. If you look at the official forum, only about a third have ever posted anything, and there only about 100 regular posters. For 50 members, the posting activity is pretty good, IMO.

Granted you don't have your 987 post count yet, put you'll get it up there! :P
