  • Order of the Eras

    Why is Dio era before Ozzy era? I don't think Dio era should trump just because it's the current lineup. I think they should be listed as they were before, which was more of a first-come, first served.

    Just my opinion.

    i reckon that it would have something to do with the internal workings of the new forum mate, just looking at quickly it seems that it may of reverted to alphabetical order maybe.

      Makes sense that the most active line-up is at the top to me... But I was waiting for someone to get offended by it

        Certainly not offended, but we all have different ideas of how things should be organized, categorized, etc.

          I was wondering when someone would say something about that. I did that because the Dio era is current - no other reason. Something I always wanted to do, but kept forgetting to do. If they go out with Ian Gillan again, I'll move that up top.

          Plus it's my site, I can do what I want to. Advantages of this being a fan site. If this were an official site, you think they'd want me to be covering things like Dave Donato, Ray Gillen, & Jeff Fenholt?

                    Ray Gillen was the reason I registered on the forum...

                      Man, I hope that happens again. Maybe around April they'll reunite with him?

                        Come to think of it... that wouldn't be half-bad.

                          I like the order of the eras the way it is now. More emphasis is given to the Dio era which is the current one.

                            I sure noticed this "change" in the listing of the eras almost straight away...Now, this honestly isn't about getting "offended" by this reversal of order that puts 'Dio-era' ahead of Ozzy-era..I know I'm not offended, in the least..As if the mere listing of the eras on this board, in whatever order, for whatever reasons, denotes some actual quality or popularity of said era among the band's fans, everywhere. And heaven knows, suddenly having Dio-era appear before Ozzy's in this new-look format couldn't ever be taken to mean (by tons of us fans) that Dio somehow trumps Ozzy, when it comes to Sabbath's world...If anything, after a long time 2+ years accustomed to the old order of forum listings, it sort of still looks odd and a teeny bit inconvenient, cos in the past, I'd instinctively know that Ozzy-era is first up on the menu, and I'd click away accordingly..

                            Another thing...With no disrespect at all to you Joe, or even some people here that seem to enjoy doing the choir-boy routine of echoing your otherwise perfectly fair and reasonable dictates, this isn't the first time that WE have been reminded (and a few others would faithfully add their own brown-nosing gems of wisdom) that this is YOUR SITE and YOUR prerogative to do things, whether trivial or important, however you see fit. This gets very annoying and tedious and downright condescending after a while...Though, I realize that, on this occasion, you probably only really meant it as a passing remark, in humour..

                            Point is, I know I certainly don't need any reminding or convincing that you're boss on this board---your forum board. Besides, I can't think of any stand-out occasions in forum threads where anybody (certainly never myself) had churlishly challenged your authority or bad-manneredly criticized your decision and actions that your authority overriding all else, needs to be explicitly stated..Just something I thought I'd vent and point out, that's all..Again, I reckon you'd understand that I didn't mean to diss or disrespect you for no reason..

                            Btw, Joe, I noticed some annoying glitches while reading some of the forum posts in recent days in some threads, where several posts appear twice in succession, the emoticons don't appear with the text details showing in their place instead and stuff like that..

                            Other than that, I've sort of seamlessly adjusted to the Vbulletin format on our precious board here---cos all the other forum boards I've been a member of in the past few years and the 2-3 others that I still post in today, use exactly this style and scheme of things...

                              for once I agree with RLP4ever; I was used to the old order; and the old order is in my mind as correct, as chronologically correct, which is the order I use to order my classical music collection (first year of birth of the composer, if equal year of death; within each composer, opus number, or if that doesn't exist, year of writing the piece).

                              So I preferred the old order.

                              I also agree with RLP3ever's other comments.

                              Now twice in a day, that's enough for the whole year!
