Zwan.com might be the worst website I've ever seen. It's annoying as hell. Everything about it makes me want to kill myself by stabbing my eyes out. What is the band thinking? Anyone else agree. You can disagree if you want, but your wrong.

I think it is too damn colorful. Reminds me of the seizure-causing Japanese cartoons except slightly more informative.

I agree that it sucks. Maybe they'll change it when they release the next cd or dvd whatever.

I don't think it sucks; however I am really upset about the fact that they forwarded smashingpumpkins.com to zwan.com ...


btw was there a uproar here at that moment?

or did anyone not care as much?


because that was a fucking crime.

haha I didn't know that !! I just checked it out to see if your pulling my leg but dyam your right.

There's something just not right in doing that LOL........I thought Billy wanted to seperate Zwan from the Smashing Pumpkins ? Cheese factor 7.5.

They should have redirected smashingpumpkins.com to Netphoria General Board forum :D

it's almost as bad as seeing my ex-favourite a perfect circle fan site (www.aperfectcircle.org) turn into a mini bio page about AC/DC's back in black !!

It really was pointless to sacrifice sp.com-the site had so much more to it and had so much more depth than the ZWAN website. That stupid intro page is just too loud, and the site itself isnt too great either. It makes me feel like i need to take a shower every time i look at it.

It has some pretty good content (videos, the albums, MP3s), but its burried away in flash, window popups (some of which are fullscreen which are a pain in the ass) and just a completely annoying presentation. I thought the SP site had a ton more content, that was ALOT easier to get too, which was why I dug it so much. The weekly premiere of the acts of "Graceful Swans of Never" or the MACHINA II rips were some of my fav. memories of the site.

I agree, also the fact that Smashingpumpkins.com goes to Zwan.com is so lame that I think if Billy wants to distance himself from the Pumpkins then he shouldn't have the site redirected. Next thing he'll be covering Pumpkins songs and saying their his songs anyway.

Zwan.com is a horribly built site, maybe people will say that the people who like the Pumpkins but no Zwan are just dinosaurs who need to get with the times, but I'm not a big fan of Zwan, I do enjoy their music, but not even half as much as the Pumpkins.

The site is colourful and the posters seem to average age 12. No offence to anyone who enjoys the site, but it really strikes me as the kind of "WHAT'S BILLY'S FAVOURITE CHEWING GUM BRAND?" board.

Don't worry, it will soon be cool to be old skool. Every other thing in society seems to be going that way... from throw-back jerseys to mesh hats. HTML will one day be king. Flash is gay.

Considering that HTML is being wiped out by xHTML, CSS and PHP, I wouldn't count on it!

My trading page is HTML though, mwahaha!

HTML will never completely be wiped out, cause I refuse to adopt new shit. I spent years learning HTML, and I ain't about to spend even more years learning even more crap.

You'd think they'd drop the whole rainbow thing eventually. I mean come on, what the hell is that thing on the album cover for christs sake. Just a load of rainbows formed together to form the shape of a Mr. Man without any distinguishing features.

Good album though :mrpimp:

But Zwan.com is quite damn annoying I have to admit, I don't like the way the Z-board is run either.

I SWEAR TO GOD IF YOU TAKE THAT COVER APART IT BECOMES A SECRET PUZZLE DEPICTING A PICTURE OF SATAN AND PETER TOWNSHEND

That's because the board is the most censored board I've ever seen on the net, say anything besides how great bolly is and they delete it. Try to criticise anyone or anything and they dele the post. That board has way to many mods and anyone of them have the power to delete anything it's a perfect example of how not to run a baord.
