Just because the new design here is about two weeks old now doesn’t mean it’s not still evolving. Today marked the launch of polls down there in that mess of ads and content on the right. The inaugural question will be nice and easy and I am encouraged to see that so far the barking dogs option is not in the lead.

While on that note, I have yet to come up with a clever name for Polls yet, sans “touch my poll” – which considering that this site is mainly visited by dudes, may give off the wrong idea. I’ll just have to take your word for it that you have soft skin… Maybe you can come up with a better idea and leave it in the comments?

That said, a bug with new user registrations and forgotten/changing passwords was fixed a few days back, so if you were having trouble signing up or changing/remembering your password in the past week or two, you should be able to do so freely now.

Thanks again for all your support, comments and criticism. It’s all appreciated and hopefully things are running fairly smooth now.

    I was going to choose “It’s the wind beneath my wings” option but I cannot support Emmure in anyway, shape or form; no matter how obscure.

  • grantbrochill

    Name ideas for the polls widget/feature:

    “Wayne Static’s Wife’s First Job”

  • explosions_in_this_guy

    cream stains, how about something simple like “daily poll”

  • nom80

    “poll-over”?
    “poll-em-up”?
    “pea-poll’s choice?”
    or something on the line of “pick of the day/week”?

  • Vujaa De

    “Making readers think their opinion is relevant Poll” because commenting wasn’t enough.

  • http://promo.withtorment.com Kaine Muse

    suggestion: swap the poll & ‘communtiy service’
    poll name: ‘your vote doesn’t matter’, ‘support democracy’, or ‘there’s enough poll to go around’

    • jrr

      That gets my… choice so far.

      Side note: I really wish the phrase “pun not intended” didn’t get exclusively used when people clearly did intend it, just so it could actually be said genuinely.

      • jrr

        Oh, and I’m an idiot and forgot to quote which one: ‘your vote doesn’t matter’

  • robichaud1

    The PRPoll

    • http://promo.withtorment.com Kaine Muse

      considering that wasn’t thought of prior, this gets my vote.

  • Weird_White_Dude

    Weird_White_Dude like this. (Thumbs Up)

  • Vujaa De

    wook, when are you going to upgrade to merch. definitely would have bought a shirt with the last logo, as well as the current one. and especially one with the address bar thundercat lookin icon. can you say PRP Hipster?

    • wookubus

      Haha that was actually going to be the next poll question to see if there was any interest. It’s been a long time since there were theprp.com shirts.

      • Relentless_Beating

        I’d but a shirt too. I have been coming to this site for probably around 10 years. Thanks to George from MuchMusic.

      • shnk666

        Fuck yeah I want a shirt!

  • verse.chorus.breakdown

    Wook, I don’t see the Tours section anymore, however I do rely on spectacles to correct my sight. Have I missed the link, or do I gotta old skool search a bands name to find tour info on the refurb’d site?

    • wookubus

      Yeah, tours didn’t make the cut. It wasn’t really getting enough traffic on the last design to be brought back again, sorry.

      • verse.chorus.breakdown

        coo, thanks for the reply! \m/

  • Vujaa De

    ok the new poll is up. ETA on the shirts.

  • metaldetected

    yeah, i was gonna go for something simple and not too immature, an obvious perversion… so mine was like “robi” suggested — the Poll Rock Palace or thePRPoll. simple, predictable… but not “oh wow, that’s so uncreative that…”

    it makes *my* comment right here look creative or well thought out in some form.

    my congrats to robichaud1 or whoever the damn winner is… like a week after.

    am i fashionably late or just a douchebag? ah… in that case, could you show me to the exit, please? thank you…

    no, no; i insist — i will throw myself out. place your trust in me, gentlemen, it will be a most punishing collision; i will see to it that at least one bone is broken. did i mention i know wookubus? that won’t work? oh — because i don’t really anyways, that was just a name drop, pure and simple. i’ll break an extra bone for that. it was made in poor taste to associate myself with such a fine and successful icon such as wookubus.

    and don’t forget the new poll is up, just in case my nonsense blocked Vujaa De’s post of significant importance!

    *crack*…. oh damned it. .. . … … … *sigh* ………. *crack* aaawh!
    this time i’ve gotten it, the damned thing!

  • Patrick Swayze

    I have a PRP.Com tee shit thats about 10 years old now? Anyone interested in it? I just wear my Wookubus is my homeboy tee shirt now.

  • Aggroculture

    Hey Wook. Any chance of putting in an option to comment on the polls? Yeah I have too much computer time in my life.

    • Geor!

      I came in here to post exactly this. The current poll is just begging for a discussion.

    • robishow

      The poll comments section would have come in handy when I accidentally voted for “Mehshuggah”. Didn’t see that first “h”. I thought the proposition was “Meshuggah sounds like Meshuggah” – i.e. nothing else; they sound like themselves. Not the “Meh… whatever… shuggah”. Alas.

      Somehow, Meshuggah survived my grievous error and they’re still together.

      • Aggroculture

        Ditto.

  • Surly

    Wook – you might be aware of this, but the ‘Recent Comments’ seems to be screwing up. It’s been like that for a couple of weeks now. You might be on the main news page and then click through to expand the Recent Comments section, but the comments seen here don’t match-up with the latest comments users have made when scrolling through the main articles. Let me know if you need me to elaborate further.

    • Farts

      Yes wook, please fix this. It is greatly hindering my trolling attempts.

  • Aggroculture

    Wook, please consider banning the user Wurst: http://www.theprp.com/2012/05/22/news/zakk-wylde-talks-about-the-possibility-of-replacing-dimebag-darrell-in-new-qa/

    I’ve been coming to theprp for over a decade: there’s no reason we shouldn’t be able to come here and talk music without being called “faggots.”

    • WURST

      Relax, I’ve seen and read worse on here, even from you, Aggro. Put your big boy pants on, shake it off and don’t let it ruin your day.

      • Aggroculture

        “Oh it’s just horseplay.” Doesn’t work for Romney, won’t work for you either.

      • WURST

        I feel it does. Moving on…

      • kturl69

        Haha I never saw this before. WURST, you quit bullying this young man. I’m gonna start an anti-bullying campaign on your ass! :D

    • SFilthy

      Don’t use the internet if you’re offended by the word “faggot”….you dumb faggot.

  • damn (your mom’s balls)

    Wook. THEPRP needs a message board. I am not nearly satisfied arguing and insulting people about the news alone. It might be cool to talk about shows in the area, maybe write some of my own reviews on albums or porn movies… how bout it??!?!

    • wookubus

      You are a few months too late. I closed the messageboard of 9 years about 3 or 4 months ago after a mutiny tore it in half. Long may it be missed.

      • TheMediaProphet

        As like-minded as a lot of us are, the message board would be hella fun for interaction. And make us waste, um I mean spend even more time on the website. But I understand they can be problematic. I’ve moderated a few in the past and it can be an insane headache.

  • Turtlestlker

    What happened to the polls? They seem to have disappeared.

  • Aggroculture

    I am using Firefox and the frontpage has been frozen on 03.1.13 for a few days now.

    • kturl69

      So use Google Chrome, like a real man, faggot.

    • wookubus

      That would be a local caching issue on your end. Look into doing a hard refresh, usually Ctrl+F5 or Command-Shift-R with the page loaded in Firefox.

  • TheMediaProphet

    I miss the forum.

      THUMBS THE FUCK UP

  • jimmer_jammer

    very hard to read most everything, sad when ive been coming to the site everyday for like 5 years….

    • nymets71087

      If you’re referring to the Comic Sans and Korn fonts, it’s April Fool’s Day. Wook does something like this every year. Also, why the fuck did you post this on a thread from 2011??

      • http://www.facebook.com/jayson.ellin jayofdajungle

        but he’s been coming to this site everyday for 5 years…apparently skipping all April 1st’s

      • http://www.facebook.com/jayson.ellin jayofdajungle

        oh and the Mets suck :)

      • nymets71087

        Unfortunately, I agree with your last statement.
