The strange thing is I thought Opian was a fair bit smarter than Dermo.  Can anyone be bothered posting any more highlights where they are talking to each other?  Bit sad to see it in this thread but I'd love to see some when it was a secret.  Imagine the mental illness required to do that.

Please bear in mind HH that Millsy has been on board since 2003 generating an average of 34 posts per calendar month.

He shouldn't be in the top ten.

I do see what you are trying to do here but to be fair I do understand the curiosity. Post output is a factor but one of many in the end. I feel you are looking for fairness, consider this; The Office ran for 14 episodes. Charlie Sheen's anger management is long past 60.

who the fuck is this HopHead?

Hello Chuffer. Not to be picky but profanity limits your appeal across younger demographics. You might be snookering yourself through that potty mouth without realising! I'd give that user name a bit of a kick along as well. Good luck!

Would be good to have some sort of weekly reporting dashboard uploaded to the spreadsheet.

Also, there's no way that FUCKING CUNT Big Fella is ahead of me.

Happy to provide a top 15 summary but to put my commercial hat on for a second I think you would benefit from the full top 50 report.

Its an anomaly millsy. Only to be expected. Dusted should be retired.

Dermo in 92% of comments where an alias is suspected, the "dusted" handle is cited as the likely source. Hard to ignore those numbers.

MattBlack wrote:

Dusted has hardly posted since 2010, he was the power on the GU board but probably not on here

The powerbase for the "dusted" handle is board mentions proportionate to post output.  Our predictive modelling engine set hype around a possible return for this handle to "giddy" level.  Those are genuine B Grade celebrity numbers. I've probably said too much but the "fadas" handle benefitted from much of the same post its departure.  Returners and new handles generally do well for a spell.

When Sladek comes above you you in any other poll apart "Te biggest internet cunt award", you know your ship has sailed

Sad times..........

It would be a mistake to consider the rankings an assessment of your personal worth.  Sladek was posting at a prolific rate and as a result unprompted awareness for this handle skyrocketed.  This is no guarantee of quality of course and I'd expect there to be a correction in the next chart based on the content I have seen.

Interested in the metrics being used here. What are the assumptions?

Thank you for your interest.  We are employing a proprietary algorithm and sense checking the results against more traditional, panel based sampling.  As a businessman yourself, I'm sure you understand the imperative to protect one's intellectual property, particularly in a speculative tech play like this one (modern patent law aside) so I am quite limited in what I can reveal.

I think speaking broadly, you'd be wise to think of the metrics as a measure of the sizzle not the steak.

1. dusted (no change) - long live the king
2. Fadas (+25 places) - like Paul Walker before him, in leaving he made his mark.
3. Smallman (+10 places) - he's one marathon better than you
4. Big Fella (no change) - won't change the world, won't ruin it either
5. Millsy (-3 places) - made anonymous middle aged djing cool again ... for a time
6. Rhouses (+4 places) - laugh out loud, satirical take on sub-continent life
7. Ultramarineblue (+4 places) - maintains his regular spot beneath Rhouses
8. Homegrove (unchanged) - holds the ban stick.
9. ETC (+1 place) - stream of consciousness Klingon finds a niche audience
10. Dermo (+ 12 places) - the rusty turbine refuses to die. Incessant screeching.
11. Presto (-6 places) - had them home delivered and didn't pull
12. Severe (-11 places) - novelty interest starting to wane
13. Sladek (new) - purely on work rate
14. Flares (unchanged) - background noise but plenty of it
15. Comical-Ali (new) - the money flooded in late

Have you ever gotten laid as a direct result of your DJing or production work? If yes, what track do you think sealed the deal?

Wasn't that on GU when he did a resignation speech, then came back a few weeks later?

I would love to hear that speech again ...

So he tried to be something he wasn't.  Hardly a hanging offence.  But to come on here and  lord it over blokes for nothing more than enthusiasm for a form of music that is rapidly fading is a bit rich.

Not Chunky BF.  Not an alias at all truth be told.  Just despise anyone with the gall to give it Johnny Big Balls every day while being quite a sad cunt themselves.


No worries mate, always like Chunky as well, that Eastern Bloc thread was greatness.

You kicked that off to be fair.  He bottled it when simply asked where he ordered records. I pounced.

Wonder how hophead is going to live the rest of his life never knowing who I am or if anything I've said is true? Some cross to bear.

I guess I'll never get to the bottom of it. An enduring mystery.

Dermo name any venue you played at and the approximate date and we'll have a look here http://www.inthemix.com.au/whatson/sydney and/or on facebook to establish you aren't absolutely full of shit. 

All you need to do is decide which real world DJ's life you need to appropriate to pull it off. You know, those guys you had better records than?  One of those jealous guys that froze you out because your style was too fresh.  Pick one of those guys and pretend to be him.

Dermo wrote:

Almost as sad as creating an alias to go on the offensive. As long as it bothers you thats all that matters. Knob head.

I'm in Oz right now. Willing to put all this bad blood to bed. Give me a venue and ill rock up, ask for DJ Mulligan and that's the end of it. If you'd rather we work this out offline, give me a venue, I'll grab you a pint and we'll have a laugh about it.

Dermo wrote:

Be sure to say hi from me, knob head.

Thought so. Can't be confident of naming a single venue lest you get caught out like last time. Your actual life must be pretty dire for you to create one for the benefit of us here. Working in a record store, djing at the odd fashion parade. Rock and fucking roll.

Want to know what i'm like, then hop on a plane and find out where I play.


You are an even bigger cunt than you make out to be.  I had until recently spent many in years living in Sydney and anyone that knows their onions there will know exactly how small the scene is, especially in respect to nights that book DJ's who play good music. There are 3 or 4 decent nights and that is it. I am good friends with the people that run them all and you are certainly not playing at any of them that's for sure.

So run along back to your garage and dust of the those 1210's and come back join us when you have finished playing in fantasyland.

As someone pointed out earlier you are most definitely all fart and no poo.

I play mainly bars and party's and am booked regularly for one off events.

Name the bars or I'm calling Eastern Bloc.

Thanks to SteelyDan for the support. lol.

Anyone off to see some fucking dj this weekend? Stupid cunts if so.

Have you purchased a Bedrock track in the last 10 years?  I can only assume you come on here peddling the same tired schtick you did on GU because you have nothing else better to do.  You're no fan of the music, no fan of the label, and if someone dare admit they are playing golf on the weekend, guess what, you aren't a fan of that either. 

Wouldn't you be happier with your own kind?  Google "overseas united fans" and have chats with some Koreans about whether Rooney really changed his Twitter profile because he is leaving.
