You make some good points Ben01 but this Threads other purpose was to post anything you like. Yes Bsb I agree with you about AUSSIEDIVO. I would also like to complain about that COG guy. There is another Member on here that has really pissed me off but I memoed that complaint to Beanster. (It's not BB, Beansters cool BTW) Last edited:
@ BEANSTERBARNES....HUM....I CAN POST WHATEVER I WANT, AND WAS A PUBLIC MESSAGE TO ALL THE FANS, NOT ONLY SHAKIRA FANS TO WATCH ROCK IN RIO LISBOA LIVE ON LINE, BUT HOW DO U THINK THAT AUSTRALIA IS ALL THE WORLD DON'T KNOW THAT PROBABLY UR ARTIST WILL BE THERE...SO WHATEVER.....
The point is that you've used numerous threads to provide the same information which inturn has violated the usage rules of thread posting i.e 'spamming'. I suggest you start removing them as a sign of remorse.
Above I said: "I actually have a bone to pick myself with someone here." Because everyone posting in the last few hours has been in good sprits, I'm going to give them another chance before I out them. Note that the member I have in mind is not anyone who has posted in the last few hours. Last edited:
Even if you want to keep it private, could you say the first letter? I'm just curious if it's the same as who I am thinking of. By the way, I'm no fan of the COG guy either, but he hasn't bothered me too much. It's a more common member that I'm thinking of.
I hate the people who have created many threads on this site for useless topics regularly such as the cog one and the australian internet radio one. Not naming anyone, I don't even know their member names.
Everyone who has posted here is safe, don't hate any of you. In fact the guy I "dislike" has attcked me multiple times when reviewing Tracks, never on the forums. If you think you know who I'm talking about Memo me.
Can you guys (Bsb and Fliptop) memo me the people you are refering to. Last edited:
i have only deleted 2 EVEN if i did delete 6 (which i didnt) i have a right to know who deleted the 7th, as none of my comments on this thread have had anything wrong with them, i might of deleted a 3rd due to bad timing on a response, but 3 is the maximum
Haha, this thread was always bound to cause trouble. I do think the second idea of this thread, a 'General Discussion' type thread where NOTHING was off topic (as long as it still followed all other rules ie; non-offensive, non-discriminatory) is a good one to have. Most forums do have this, and it might solve other threads going too far off topic (which many of you know is a gripe I often have )
When I have a problem with a member serious enough to talk about or report, I use memo. Not everyone needs to get involved. The 'report' function bsb suggested is also a good idea, a simple way to link to a mod that a post might be spam or offensive so that they don't have to search an entire thread to find the offending post.
Lastly, if I'm the person upsetting any of the people who have mentioned it above, send me a memo and we can discuss it.

bsb dont worry mate, whatever your sexuality is, it should not have any bearing on this site so good luck with whatever you decide in life on that aspect. its a shame that you feel as though you have to 'reveal' this information for fear that someone else will tell people.
also sorry LIFTER im a bit red faced now, i guess the thread was neccesary
I don't know exactly how this complaint thread is supposed to work but I would like to report Mykl 77 and bring his/her behavior on australian-charts.com up for discussion. I've read through a lot of threads here and it appears I'm not the first to have a problem with Mykl 77. Just today, he posted what could come across as an offensive message on 392414's Personal Charts, Pt. II [Your Charts].
"Quite a horrid chart this week, funny how things can change so suddenly. Used to be one of the best charts, now it's got to be one of the worst."
"Why did you delete my comment loser? I won't bother commenting anymore then."
These are the most uncivil comments I have read on australian-charts.com. Not to be the civilty police or anything, but surely on a website like this that is fairly well-known on the internet amongst people who follow music charts (as a component of the Steffun Hung body of website) there should be a line drawn somewhere about what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Personally, I would NEVER bash someone's chart, even if I liked no songs on it - even if I hated every song on it. At worst, I would offer suggestions, maybe even CONSTRUCTIVE critism. But I would never sink so low as to call someone's opinion "horrid" or "the worst". That goes beyond constructive critism in my books. Even in the extremely unlikely event that this could of been a joke or something it just isn't funny. We have GUESTS for goodness sake that come and go here all the time, what kind of reputation does this give to the australian-charts.com community? And as for calling someone a loser (and probably meaning it) and leaving a nasty remark "won't bother commenting anymore" to top it off, Mykl 77's actions, the way I see it, have just completely crossed the line.
I don't claim to be an expert of social interactions, but I thought that friends put each other down for a bit of a laugh, and no party is offended. Perhaps we could find out whether or not 392 is offended by the remark?
Even if 392414 or anyone else isn't offended, do we want "uninformed" guests (who could become potential members) seeing that in threads? They might think this is a place where they'll be put down if people dislike their opinion. I think Mykl 77's behavior has crossed the border. Last edited:
Mykl77 sent me a memo. They could've replied to me with a nice and civil comment. Instead I was subjected to a very nasty-sounding post. I was hoping a friendly explanation from Mykl's end at least would set things straight but Mykl77 has instead decided to disrespect me, even though I have genuine concerns. Last edited:
Don't want to re-escalate this, but I just read my thread; I wouldn't say anything of the horrid chart bit, it's sort of an ongoing thing between Mykl and I, and he wouldn't mean any offense by that. Don't know where the deleted comment was, I certainly didn't delete any of his comments.
Perhaps this Thread can be used to warn the offender about the bad behaviour then if they don't listen send the Staff memos.
EDIT: I have come up with a List that lists The Top 20 Biggest Impacting Members in Australian-Charts.com History. There are many ways to judge how the List should be done and it is debatable but the ways I did this List include. Number of Reviews Consistancy of Regular Posts in Threads Longevity on The Site Charts Game Success Prediction Success Personal Chart Threads Other Threads Chat Room Activeness Extra Things. Some things can outdo other things depending on how big it is. I also tryed to include members that were posting on the site in 2007/2008 to be as fair with this as possible and not be biased towards the last 2 Years. Anyway here is the Top 20 in no order IMO of The Biggest Impacting Members In Australian-Charts.com History. The few that deserved a mention. Billbeast. BillyBrett. CrazyChris. wlv262
THE TOP 20. (In no particular order). Hijinx. Bulion. TravD. BeansterBarnes. Bluezombie. LIFTER500. Clinton. Bsb745. Antonnalan. Irelander. AlleyT1989. Chris A. Daniel09. Chri8topher 392414. Nateboi. Brandon. D Man. DaveNT. Innocent Eyes.
This List is just my opinion and isn't anything offical. Last edited:
This is a really stupid. I stated my distaste for the current chart which I'm allowed to do as it's my opinion. Myself, 392 and a few other members are like that towards each other.
I replied in a civil manner, I just said how you shouldn't be calling people out for things when you don't know the dynamics of the people in question. No one involved has been offended, the regular members know we're like that towards each other. There's been much worse than that on here.
I'd have said the same thing to anyone who'd have made a complaint of that sort of nature, so there's no need to feel disrespected.
I just said what I liked and didn't like about the chart and how now that Wonderful Life's not up there it's not one of the best anymore. This is just all stupid. Supposedly I can't say what I don't like, I should just provide constructive feedback LOL. Well, chart N-Dubz. Remember 392, your response must be constructive. No being mean
That's it. I'm leaving australian-charts.com because I do not wish to be subjected to any more bullying at the hands of Mykl_77. I really wanted to enjoy this website for a long time but if this website is dedicated to bullying others, then this just won't work. I believe in morals and decency, not bullying by "real members" who are "superior" if they have been on here longer. I'll be the better man in this situation and take the fall, even though the fault is really in the hands of the troll (aka Mykl_77).
Before I leave, I would like to thank the other members and guests for allowing me to enjoy my short-term stay here and wish them all the best in their future pursuits on this website. Take care everyone and remember, you don't have to stand for Mykl_77's bullying of you.
A bit blown out of proportion all this. I agree there is a place for constructive criticism. Such replies may be misconstrued as insulting by some. Perhaps a should have been used (if it wasn't) as it implies what the comment is ... 'tongue in cheek' but constructive feedback all the same. Short memos between the two parties involved is the way to go, to clear any bad air. You'd be amazed how many comments can be misinterpreted, then escalating a situation that never was.
hrm, not too sure whats exactly caused all this but i will go in for Mykl's defence and say that i have spoken to him many a time and found him to be a wonderful and friendly person. it is very unusual for anyone else to say stuff like that about him.
This just goes to show that some people will find some of the behaviour and posts of others will be found offensive. It doesn't matter that it's harmful banter or just playing around, Cliff does have a valid point but so does Mykle but nobody is in the right unfortunately. Hopefully this is a lesson to all concerned.
This may be my first ever complaint on Aus charts but here goes...
Some of you may have read about my rant on the ARIA Chartifacts thread (15th November) and I am personally very annoyed that Martin/Sally can call his/her predictions 'better' than others. I know that no one has really taken offense (except for me) and that this instance has only occurred 3 times but I find it very annoying that you can arrogantly call your predictions superior to others. Technically you cannot as it's just predictions and we're all predicting in the same boat. Unless you have cheated and know the results, you cannot say that your predictions are better than anyone elses and I find this an annoying act of arrogance.
Martin/Sally - I have absolutely nothing against you and I do acknowledge that I'm the only one complaining about this situation but would you please refrain from calling your predictions 'better' than someone elses.
I wouldn't worry too much anton, after all the week he said he'd do better than me, I beat him 10-4 and the week he said he'd beat BillyBrett, he lost 8-6. He's 0 for 2 so far, so all it really means is that you'll beat him this week.
Just finished watching the 30 minute documentary on the "Loud" deluxe edition bonus disc, and Rihanna did the photoshoot for the album cover artwork.
She seemed happy and it was her choice of wardrobe, she DID cover up her never regions, she placed her hands there so that you can't see her underwear.
If Rihanna wants to strip off and show some skin, then it's her choice, she likes to show off her hot body!
OMG! i just purchased Kesha's "Animal/Cannibal" deluxe album today, and there are 3 enhanced videos including the 2nd version of "Take It Off".
It's a must buy! for any Kesha fan!
Nelly Furtado's "Greatest Hits" is also a good cd to buy! does anyone know if a DVD compilation of her videos will get released?

Alley: I understand lol. I don't have that pic anywhere in the packaging or booklet I have.
Brandon: YOU SERIOUSLY BOUGHT THAT!?!?!?!?!? What a waste of money.
it just seems really harsh to say that someone wasted their money on an album they enjoyed, I dont think anyone (well, other than billybrett that I noticed) really cares but its just something I felt needed to be brought up
bsb's point is kind of valid, though it's hardly a new issue. People have been rude, insulting and dismissive of other's opinions and tastes since before I joined. It seems if you like something "disapproved" you get attacked, and you can even get attacked for disliking something the masses like. (Yes, I think Bruno Mars is awful, people, get over it. It's just my opinion, I don't need anymore memos telling me it's wrong.) There are ways to disagree with people without going as far as attacking them, and maybe we should all try to be more careful about this.
Who isn't important, I suppose at least they haven't been downright attacks, although telling me how wrong I am isn't the best thing to do. People have been attacked in worse ways for having opinions. But still, it can stop.
At least you 2 have been attacked through Memos. I have been attcked multiple times on the Forums and the Reviews for the public to see. Typical. I actually kinda wish that someone would send me a hate memo so then I would not have to worry about holding back when I respond to them like I would on a Public Forum. Last edited:

Just informing anyone who may or may not know that I'll be on holiday in the US from tomorrow until the 27th of January. I will still have internet, most hopefully daily, so don't expect to get 6 weeks without me. Last edited:
Yes, there isn't. If you want me to create one, I'd probably put it in a charts section, just like the Pizza thread is in the Sport section (), but I think it's k-kinda useless since it basically never snows in Australia. And what random lyrics
Whatever, BZ, you will never be as underground/cool as me.
There is this band I know about, I went and saw them play in a dodgy basement in a local pub. I was the only one there. They were AWESUm. They were so good, I couldn't stand to think that anyone else could possibly understand just how AWESUm they were.
So I killed them. Just so I could be that cool. Just so I could be the only one who heard 'Experiment in Pentatonic Scale 4.5' Last edited:
I'm gonna regurgitate (lol shameless music reference) this old thread to introduce my brother to the world of Aus-Charts.com. His profile name is liam99, and you may have seen a few reviews of his around the place. He's only 11, so cut him some slack for spelling and grammar errors. He did make charts last year which I posted, but with this profile he's going to relaunch them and I will help him archive them and the rest of it.
I wasn't orginally going to say anything but because I still feel bad about it I will.
Before I bother sending memos I would like to know what the penality for strike 2 is. For example I get attacked last year and the bully gets warned but then a whole Year later he attacks me again. Does the strike 2 penality for bullying get reduced if there is that much time between the attacks or does it stay the same even if there is only a week between attacks? Does that bully get banned, a 2nd warning or does nothing happen. In this case this member in early 2010 in the reviews attacked me a few times minorly (1-2 insults) because of our different music taste which I didn't do anything about because in some of those reviews other members tell him he is doing the wrong thing. In May 2010 he then did a big hate rant in a review towards me which I reported to the Admin about and he was warned. This seemed to work because for nearly a Year there were no attacks but then only a few weeks ago he did another hate rant to me in a review and that brings us to now. In the nicest way possible my definition of hi(a)m is big smartass. So should he be banned despite the huge gap between attacks, get yet another warning or do nothing. If your an Aus-Charts Veteran then you would know that I have been repeatally attacked by another Member (in the Forums though) before and that I am an obvious bully magnet thanks perhaps to a combination of my occasionally immature music rants and my so called horrible music taste. Maybe I'm also a bad guy in all this. Mind you though Staff haven't warned me about anything before which is probaly why I didn't stop the rants. Anyway what should this guys strike 2 penality be? Thoughts if any.
I think banning is probably a bit harsh, even for a 2nd offence. A severe warning is definitely warranted. There's a difference between expressing an opinion by calling people out for disliking one style of music and liking another and making it a joke AND personally attacking a person over their opinions.
I know that irelander. My post clearly states I'm in agreeance with you and your suggested punsihment. Not wure why you think I thought it was a joke and he should get off lightly, hence my use of the word difference and then putting AND to seperate the two differences.
I've always been a believer in treating others the way that you'd like to be treated. I'm sure if i was a victim of this i'd certainly want the offender removed and banned from the site pronto, if he/she wasn't i'd be pretty hesitant to come back to the site. Cyber bullying is a big issue and to be able to roam freely and punish somebody because of their musical tastes and continually get away with it is really not the right message any administration should be sending.
I didn't want to create a new thread just to ask this but does anyone know paramore (the member, not the band) outside of these forums? They memo'd me six months ago asking for some charts which I replied to promptly with said goodies - they haven't even logged into the site since the day before I memo'd back, let alone read the reply. I hope they are OK.
