    From chatting to old members at Woody's bash last night...

    Seems there's still a lot of interest in keeping the site alive, but, the catch is, unless you post instead of just reading the topics, then it's going to be left to just a handful of enthusiasts.

    In the old days, the post count to reader ratio was usually between 8 and 10-1 because a good portion of the readers actively took part in discussions, now it's probably more like 100 readers for ever 1 post in quiet spells and 50-1 at more active times.

    Looking for the perfect beat.

    sounds like my threads that, always getting ignored

    I find it a lot easier to post nowadays since the cliqueiness dissapeared... there are still some good posts flying around

    When I say move with the times, I don't mean music I mean a few new tweaks here and there to get people interested and playing on the radio again.

    If OSA was a facebook app and was totally incorperated into your fb page it would be very busy all the time...people who want to interact socially are the people who tune in and chat in shout boxes but for some reason now, they all need to plot up and be selective about who gets to read what about who,is there is some kind of stigma about being in the site shoutbox or sumink? I'm not some lurking thread pervert who just monks up untill the right face comes along to take his dirty load...unlike Reet and Ivan who are the worst for that sort of thing.
    Axe auto and reduce the amount of old school available for free when off air... actively encourage all old schoolisms like "gellin" and being"safe" ... all OSA dj's to get a webcam and wear Fila rave boots...save old school and ban the fkng whale...don't even get me started about the "Bigun from Wigun"

    The site was more active before the radio started here though. The radio shoutbox just took away some of the posters from the forum bit (the ones who used to leave posts for others to read later), to becoming an instant chat site that you had to be around to see or get involved in, as blink and you'd miss it.

    Looking for the perfect beat.

    it's a no brainer then..a return to form... 1- sack the radio chatbox and encourage the OSA facebook crew to lock in more through affiliation??? not my thing but am sure it could be intergrated more than it is at the mo. 2- A pole to suggest any revamping/renaming of current thread options for the peeps who use it/would use it more often.

    My daughter is propper on the pulse...she is hanging on soundcloud ..which is fast becoming the one ALL the kids are using. I am going to revamp my soundcloud and upload a weekly podcast...see whats what. I have been using soundcloud for years but I'm going to get an organized régime of reaching a global audience through soundclouds already excellent network of fan clubs etc.

    I know there's loads of oldskool nights on out there but if like me your not going out much at the mo then oldskool has to live on on this site... This site should play all forms of oldskool, deep house thru to hardcore techno. It was only ever about the music for me anyway so all the peace and unity stuff can fade although we should all be kind to our fellow man... Respect is the key, just keep your cat out of my flower bed or I'll poison the fucking thing.

    Can't see any changes happening to the website, takes dosh and the guy in charge ain't got time no more.

    When OSA started it was the social media channel of the scene , a community in it's own right.
    Now things have moved on and people connect in so many different ways through facebook, twitter etc etc.
    The social media of today makes nights, dj's music etc so much more accessible on a wider scale that it's hard to keep BB's going these days.

    That said there's no reason why OSA can't thrive , it just needs unique aspects and content that people can't find elsewhere ..

    Book them and they shall come !!

    UCK SAKE!

    In true Sirius style, I tried to post a long winded message, clicked submit and it was lost to zeros and ones. I then thought i'd better have another go, probably more long winded and that too is gone for good. Reminds me of the good old days here and poor Sirius, as he must have lost enough text to fill a library

    Anyway, maybe next time i'll remember to keep myself logged in

    Looking for the perfect beat.
