I'VE BEEN WANTING TO START A GREAT FANSITE FOR AGES! I know there is the orangegreenandgold one, but it really isn't all that great - though it does have a lot of the videos! I think it would be great to have something with a detailed history (which doesn't seem to be too hard to write up), in-depth profiles on each of the members and those involved, a great image gallery, including shots from the shows, media of any sort of course, a location with all of the interviews and such put on it, appearances, etc., etc. There are lots of things your can put on fansites! Look at stuff like hilary-duff.net. There's just a giant collection of stuff about her.

I think you should definitely go for it, if you want to create a site.
We could always use another Eisley fansite! Smile

But...in defense of OGG, I think it is pretty much very in-depth and has tons of content (as far as rare songs and videos go).
The site is organized very well..
And they are working on putting up an extensive and well researched history of the band.
There are a few parts of the site that could use some smoothing up, (the picture section isnt the easiest to navigate)
But I can't imagine how much more info you could conjure up.
Maybe a bit lengthier profiles...but what would your sources for that be? Just curious.

The old eisley.com profiles were the best. I miss them as well. I don't know ...the new site just seems so distant or something. Old site had a more "real" feel to it, with the profiles written by the band, and the art section, and sort of friendly disarray with mp3s scattered about. Like a comfy yet cluttered room...
Oh i miss it. Sad

A little competition for OGG won't hurt. I'm using "competition" loosely, as the Internet is plenty big for anyone to do what they want. Go for it.

I think it'd be great if someone was really original and made an Eisley coffee table book.

oh yeah, you're new

<--- working on detailed history with boyd it might go on OrangeGoldandGreen it might go right here on eisley.com, depends on how good of a job i do, hahaha.

and OGG has some of the stuff you mentioned, that big photobucket is our picture gallery and you can have acess to it as a fan (pm chasd00 for the password) also we have bios, they aren't indepth but is there so much more you need to know? i have some interviews, i forgot to post em, hahaha, i'll get on that.
and someone was working on a gigography i think...and don't forget we have the gear section! crucial for Eisley fans...

ok, i'm done sticking up for OGG, to this guy starting his own fan site, have fun dude, and send us a link so we can add you to the OGG link page

Yeah, I don't know what he's saying. OGG is pretty fab and apparently is only going to get better. I don't see another fansite being better than it. But, I welcome all to try. Gives me more places to surf when I'm bored. Very Happy
