Yes, it should definitely be updated. Lack of new information makes this site less attractive than it used to be.

Well I wish it would be, but that's irrelevant. Evan is not in a condition such that he can make regular updates.

Re: Updating? new [re: Claude]  

I come here for the message board.
I go to Wonderworld for the news / updates.
I go to Bassaman's site for album / cd info.

So it really doesn't matter.

Pretty to look at, but they've got no brains.

Forgive me for being ignorant and insensitive, but just what is the matter with Evan that he's in such poor shape? Some kind of illness?

Yes. Evan suffers from Mal de Débarquement.

Goddamn.

I probably have the same syndrome, since I suffer from chronic imbalance and motion-related dizzyness that has remained undiagnosed as anything else, even after years of seeing different kinds of specialists.

Geopar Rettimus new [re: Claude]  

I don't care about the news, because I can get it from the boards, but it's unfortunate that year-old news is still being presented as current on the TW homepage. It makes the site look deserted.

I say it is and it's true

It's not only about the news. It's also about new stuff - lyrics, soundtracks, discography in general... It hasn't been updated since... years even.

just think about all the people who never make their way here to the boards cause they see the main page and think that its a dead site. I also feel sorry for the new people here who have never seen TW in its full glory.

No, the Heathen lyrics are there... I think all of them are, actually.

In the original version of Space Oddity I sang "Ground Control, I miss my mum, Ground Control, I miss my mum". What can I say... I miss mum.

Not necessary new [re: Pythonis]  

I heard that Evan was born in a lunatic asylum and he only sleeps one hour a night...

Seriously, I saw Evan in June. He's fine. I mean, he still has that syndrome thingy, but it's not like he's bedridden with one foot in the grave.

Basically, he doesn't have the time to keep the site up as diligently as he used to. When there's something really big, it gets updated, and lyrics and so forth are put up to keep the site complete, but the day-to-day trivia just isn't so important when you're a working adult and all. The fora run themselves and anything that's of particular interest will get around. When was the last time any of y'all missed out on something because it wasn't on the TW front page?

I've heard it said before, though I can't remember where, that rather than being a "news" site, TW functions as an excellent research site, to the extent that the critical historical and reference information is there. The beauty of that is that daily updates aren't required, only updates on major events, which are maintained.

As far as discouraging new members...well, let's just say that I don't think attracting new members is much of a priority.

Sure, it would be nice if the site were updated more frequently, but frankly I think it's wholly unimportant.

In reply to:

They are indeed. But what about lyrics for two songs by Bowie and Rustic Overtones? What about new releases of Ziggy Stardust Motion Picture? What about Best Of Bowie being mentioned only in NEWS? There is lot of Bowie stuff which is not available here.

But it eventually gets floated here because I've gotten information from here when 5-10 minutes later, someone comes up to tell me. So I do not worry about it too much.

And yet you knew that it had been released as did everybody else here. And you, the world and his wife know what's on them both. So you've pretty well proven the point that updates aren't required, haven't you?
Updates aren't important...enything new, rumour or otherwise comes up in the NV&Q board about a year before it's even been announced anyway, so...what's the problem?

Re: Heathen is not all. new [re: Arlequino]  

Just remember that not every single fan who visits Teenage Wildlife is an active member of Conversation Piece. I've been visiting TW since 1998, but I became a member and started posting on CP in mid 2000.

Should I believe that I've been stricken?

Yes, but it would be nice if the new releases would be updated to the music-section. According to TW, the last single Bowie released was Seven back in 2000. I know that we all know it isn't so, but it would be nice to see the list completed, the fact it isn't complete devaluates the site. Also, we are missing much of the lirycs on the songs from the new singles. Like Evan says himself in the music page, that section is the meat of the site. It should be kept up to date.

I hear you.

Changes will be made.

(incidentally, another reason why I disappeared is that spam starting killing my email inbox. I've finally got an acceptable solution that seems to be filtering out the 400 email spams I get per day, so if you want to send in lyrics or single details that are missing - go ahead. Send them to webmaster@teenagewildlife.com).
