Once you learn what each forum is about, you realise there are several small, distinct communities on the board and they don't mix with each other at all.


It can seem daunting, but I know of at least two more boards that look labyrinthine by comparison. Yesfans is so huge that I've barely scratched the surface, and Dr Who Online is so much larger again that I've only managed a handful of posts, and those were mainly in the one section that interested me.

I've changed my mind about this a bit. Yeah it's intimidating to new people but if they hang around they'll find you guys quite entertaining. You bicker and bitch a lot but mostly as friends. It's kind of endearing.

Liken it to a cowboy movie.

You either come in with guns your blazing, keep your head down and just watch the fire fight, or you can always switch it off.

Queen are an emotive band, and seem to attract these emotive people, whether they are alleged comedians, other rock stars, or just like the looneys we've obviously got here (myself included).

Hi, well I've just joined up and it seems like most forums, it takes a while to get a feel for the personalities and differing senses of humour. I've only posted on the 'flick of the wrist' section (love that title ;-) ) as I always feel more comfortable with arty-farty types. I'll dip my toe into other sections as and when I have wadded through the mass of postings..I was talking to a fan at the Brian /Kerry Ellis Gig in Brum' and they recommended this site. :cool:

Generally in-jokes and abuse will put newcomers off but I'm from the west midlands and we have thick skin.. ;)

Aha, just down the road from me!

You have to have a thick skin with your accent over there :lol:

Just had a look at your website - some nice artwork there.

Well. Hello. =) My name is Angeelika. I'm 18 years old and I live in Tallinn, Estonia. =) I wasn't much a Queen fan until I met my ex. And now I'm quite crazy. Well.. I don't know many facts about them and so on but.. There's time for learning, right? :) My favourite song is "Save me" but ofc I love many songs by them. =) And ofc I love their two lives :
1981 Queen Rock Montreal
and
1986 Queen Live at the Wembley stadium.
I'm still a student. i'm studying in two schools : high school and music school. Well..

I hope I can get many friends here and have fun =)

Cya !

If it's still open, sure you can. Even if the poll has closed(sorry, cannot tell if it has closed or not, typing from phone),go ahead and post your thoughts :).

Hello Queenies!,
My name is Brittany, I'm a 13 year old Australian MAYniac! I've always had that little special place for Queen since I was around 7 years old, but in the last 6 months I've gone completely Queen crazy! I've got all their albums on record and now I'm saving up for all their live dvds.

My parents have never been supportive of my 'Queen obsession', nor do I know any Queenies at my school. Looks like I'll be roaming around the forums to talk with Queen fans from 'round the globe to keep me going in my 'Queenless' world

Hope to get to know some of you :D
Love you all darlings xx
Mother Mercury,
Look what they've done to me,
I cannot run, I cannot hide...

Welcome one and all to the crazy crazy world of QOL!. As JLP says we`re all loonies but you have to be to follow this band for 40 years. Anyway jump in the water`s fine and don`t take the sharks too seriously.

I used to have my own Queen blog but due to various reason and logistics had to discontinue. I started coming here instead but this site takes the prize in super negativety. Why are there certain posters allowed to continuosly bash Brian, Roger and any singer they decide to affiliate with? It's the same ones over and over again. I understand there is an ignore feature? But it's like some have more fun trolling than actually discussing Queen's new projects in a logical fashion without resorting to child-like antics.
