Posted:Maybe it's not a good sign, but sometimes it really does feel like the whole universe is conspiring to make me as miserable as possible, like how yesterday I decided to get an account on Myspace.com, seeing as it would help me to feel better about myself if I got to meet more people, even if it is just online.

So I pick out a username, and set about writing a whole load of stuff about myself that hopefully won't put people off the idea of having anything to do with me. After a couple of hours re-reading and tweaking it I'm happy enough, and sign off to go and make some photos a bit more webable.

The trouble comes when I try and sign in again to upload the pictures. Username and password go into the little, boxes. I click on the little 'login' button. And I get a screen telling me I must be logged in to do this.

OK, so maybe I typed the password in wrong, so I try again a couple of times. Still no. Maybe I typed it in wrong when I made the account, so I click on the 'forgot password' button, and go check my email. Nope, the password is just as I entered it. Check the help page, clear cookies and cache, try again. Nope.

By now I've been getting 'verification' requests too, as I've had so many failed logins, so I've got to type in some characters from a wobbly image. After a few more tries it tells me my account doesn't exist any more.

Why do I -ing bother.


Maybe I should have just got on and done the work I've been meaning to on my own webserver. I've payed for a domain name, and can do stuff with it that almost makes Myspace.com look like a waste of time anyway, except I'm not going to meet anyone having a homepage sitting all on it's own in the middle of cyberspace.

Posted:I get the same problem too..
But I'm not really bothered. MySpace is home to millions and millions of teenagers who all have the same studded belts, the same song lyrics tattooed on themselves, the same trousers so low down that their willy is nearly poking out, the same self potrait black and white picture of themselves taken from above etc etc. Load of poo!
I'll come visit your homepage. Although I've met you before, and spun those pretty pretty glowly things ubblove

Posted:let not be so quick to judge....

myspace is also a place for lots of up and coming and also well establisted bands to demo their styles, new tracks and build a fan base, along with movies, tv shows, and radio shows repeseneted on there, its a good resource, but yes at time you are right aimee, its just a group of mates who hang out in real life, hang out on there

i use it to find new music to like and listen to,

also to make sure my slow takeover of the work is going right smile

polarity, message the admins, contact them, and explain they might have an account back up...?

Posted:Emos. Thankfully I defy all attempts at stereotyping, or I'd really be worried about constantly being depressed, slightly effeminate (I prefer androgynous, or as Skully put it 'graceful'), and having a good reason to wear long sleeved shirts.

I already emailed the admins. I may do so again to suggest where they can stick their server. I think a computer may even surpass ginger beer in those situations though, and I don't feel that bad.

Perhaps I should get to work on my server, before I get nominations to be the patron saint of procrastinating.

some bloke keeps inviting me to gigs on myspace, but for some reason, only ones that are miles away...... it's all very mysterious.....

Posted:I think is signed up to myspace last your but refrained from actually making anything of it because the process of making a decent one looked daunting as hell (I know you don't have to have silver bells and cell-animation on every one but I'm an artist, therefore a stubborn perfectionist)

After being egged on (i.e. peer pressure) I finally caved. (Becoming single again, thus spending more time on the net certainly helped!)

I'm good at art but I know sod all about html codes and the like so my masterpiece will be a work in progress. (DAMMIT! I want an instant zeitgeist-defining masterpiece of a homepage NOW!)

Posted:Everytime I stumble across MySpace, it makes me want to puke. Not that I've done much in the way of exploring that pile of excrement, but I've only seen one or two profiles that didn't make me instantly want to shut the browser down. Currently, I'm on tribe.net quite a bit. A generally good conglomerate of information. I'm still lookin for similar resources, but MySpace is way at the bottom of the muck barrel.

Anyways, sorry, I'm kinda in a ranting mood today.

The groups on myspace at least seem less filled with stupid, or people that claim to know what they're doing when they don't. (even though it's filled with hopeless ranting) tongue

And because it's all homepages yeh alot of it will be crap, but there's also loads of funny/great stuff on there, cause people just don't post the same on regular websites.
