Matt or anyone from the GDA/GDC team has made things up about the band or pretended to know more than they do just to troll or get attention outside April Fool's Day? Not something I recall

How can we be sure? Maybe just "plans changed". I don't think a bit of trolling would be that out of character, though.

Man, you must be a real treat in real life.

I'm sure gdc has insiders that can confirm that.

Because you know my character? You’re pretty sure of yourself about some strangers on the internet.

Because I'm on the GDA/GDC team and I'm telling you? For Matt?? It would be lol

Again I know I have a different pov but the idea GDA team would troll like that or that it has "alleged" insiders is just something that I know to be incorrect. I don't know where you got that impression.

Yeah, I have enough experience on GDC and internet to know that I can't trust everything strangers say plus yeah, if there's someone I'd expect a little trolling from, GDC staff might be on the list :P

Being skeptical sure gets you a lot of backlash round here. So what if someone doesn't believe a piece of non-info? We'll find out either way soon what's actually happening.

There'll be an announcement today at 5pm PT. If nothing happens then obviously the plan changed. 

Are you serious?

Nowhere near the edge levels of you and your friend not trusting a trustworthy source. You totally beat me this time.

@Hermione Did you get your 30K posts on this thread trying to resonate people? 😂
Seriously this thread is going nowhere near anticipation right now.

I don't think it's overtly suspicious to not blindly believe stuff that posted on a forum or that pointing out that the stuff posted online may not be correct is creating negative atmosphere. But we don't have to argue about that at all. This thread will go on no matter what we believe and we'll know what happens or doesn't happen in two days anyway. Last thing that will have an impact is if we're all persuaded or not.

Oh my god :lol:. I really have way more posts than that but they kept getting deleted by forum updates etc right before I got to 30k. Even though it's not an accurate number yay for me :banana:

Who's doing that though? All Jana was saying is that she doesn't believe everything she reads (and on the internet, why should she, lol).

We haven't been given any info, that's literally the reason I reply with that. I was interested in the thread because of the possible clues we could gather from the band through instagram posts, website activity, that kind of thing. I'm not interested in "something is happening" posts from anyone, not even someone I'm told is trustworthy. I think it derails the conversation because then every single person who posts afterwards refers back to it, like 'well he said this so it can't be that' or 'well that's not what he said'. I don't see our questioning of it any more disruptive than that.

If me saying I hate vague information riles people up, they can just ignore it. It's people trying to convince us we should believe that's the problem imo. 

The thread's called anticipation thread, and for me that's having fun guessing tracks and dates and stuff based on stuff from the band and our own predictions, not pestering users for "info" which might turn out to be incorrect anyway (due to changing plans or whatever it is.) 

It's just the implication that Matt would make it up. I know he isn't/wouldn't so it's just annoying to see that suggestion being posted repeatedly.

I think it just comes with the package. Gotta be prepared to deal with people not believing you if you drop a "something is happening this week" post. I don't think anyone is obliged to believe it, is all.

Even if he somehow wasn't right it would still be a fact that he didn't just make it up to troll so any "I told you so" would still be wrong.

Who else feels like they dm each other on what they will post? :lol: And then go like "lol yeah girl, you told them!"

@Matt. better be right because listening to beerjeezus spout "told you" rhetoric might make me leave the forum.

If only she had any sense of humor to make the ironic comments a little bit more funnier though I wouldn't mind. Now she really replied to matt's "you must be a treat in real life" with "I'm sure gdc has insiders that can confirm that". Like come on. That's not even a 5/10.

Well it’s finally Friday, I wonder if we’ll get an announcement today. Although the Longshot announced last night that a show was being moved from the Moroccan Lounge to the Taragram Ballroom
