Further to your blog comment the other day mark, why dont you make a useable version of myspace. Then invent something which will move someones entire profile over. Then you'll be rich and can sleep at night knowing you saved millions of meaningless lives from the wrath of such poor shit.

I just picked up my account from ages ago so i could bug my friend and gah!

    I have seen a whole lot of writeups of how to improve the myspace model. Basically an API so that individual services can all share user interaction on different domains and such.

    I would like to see some of this be put into action thats for sure :)

    BUT I think that Vanilla is more important for now :)
  • That's why there probably will never be a MySpace API.. why allow their users to get "myspace" content from another website?

    To me, "myspace" has slowly become synonymous with "stalker-service" for some reason due to all the stupid news reports on it. Either way, it's just a more popular version of Friendster among the teen population. There's so many more useful services out there which are worth using...
  • Just checked out Friendster.

    OMFG PWNAGE!!!11 Just being there for 3 minutes and you can already tell it beats the shit out of MySpace. FaceRaged.
    Their code is so much nicer too.
  • Krak: I'm guessing you're not exactly the MySpace target market.

    I don't think so either.
  • lechlech Chicagoland
    There's a ton of these social networking sites out there and they've been around for years before myspace. I'm suprised you haven't heard of friendster and others before now, krak.
  • Eh, Im not. I dont really run in those circles. Like Bergamot said, Im not exactly the MySpace target market.
  • Oh my god, I was just friday going to write a post on MySpace and how it has "risen again"

    I used to know a time when people using MySpace were considered the unfitting for society and shunned on, but now it has become a fad again, again.
    It boggles the mind to even start to realize how these things just go on internet, it's almost as unpredictable as next-gen console wars.

    Well, paint me colors suprise liberace.

    I've got profiles on MySpace ( and Audiostreet ( - similar to MySpacebut for music makers only), for the sole purpose of getting my music heard.

    They're both ugly as sin but if it means more people are listing to my tracks, I don't care.

    My flat mate has taken it a stage further... using it more than he does email to communicate with some people... and even organising a date through it... hilarious!

    my myspace page is hot as hell.

    haha, i'm very proud of it.
  • 3stripe, you should sign up at but there is already a group called dj3stripes

    A more tastefully designed site to promote your music.
