what happened to the black box?
 
well, it wasn't called like this anymore, it was that SUPER COOL tour section of the old site, from the TINLTL days, almost EVERY show had exclusive info an photos as they were played. like, MINUTES after the performance there were already fotos up, ones pretty exclusives from backstage and stuff.

they stopped doing that a while ago, but it was still up until the ESPG version of the site, you could browse the fotos from the years of the shows and within the years you could see all of the shows played. now with this new Greatest Hits version, there's just this dumb regular foto session. cool pics, evidently, we can never have enough foo pics, but I miss seeing the old ones searching by the years, why would they do that? does someone has all of them saved somewhere?

I didn't realize it was gone. Now I'm pissed. Bring back the black box!

when was it, because the new site layout is relatively new, so it was fairly recent the last time we had access to the black box directly from the website. but if you do have a link, I hope you find it, a lot of people will be happy to see again all of those pictures.

I had the link bookmarked from the last overhaul of the website. It's not there anymore. The images are no longer hosted.
Bummer.

Couldn't we contact the webmaster or something? We probably wouldn't get an answer, but you never know.

I find it a good idea. Or we should start a petition for it. Altough, I don't know if that would work.

Maybe Jill or Tym know something more about it (hint, hint :))?

yeah, I was thinking about that. they're not webmasters but they probably have contact with them.

geez, it makes no sense to erase all of those pictures! years and years of foo history documented in images. I love the foo fighters, they're my favorite band and all, but it didn't end there, they always had the coolest internet documentation and fan interaction (they used to post in the postboard), even on the ESPG site, they even had a blog where all of them would post something about the tour. and now? it's just a plain dumb, normal site with basic info. I KNOW it's better than nothing, but let's not be so negative, there's no reason why end all of the coolness they had here.

sorry if I'm sounding a bit overreacted, it's not like my life is going to change, but it's my fav band and all I wanted to do was revisit those cool photos they had, that's all. I'm ok with the simplest website ever as long as the blackbox is still there.

I am afraid it's gone unless someone has all those pictures.

I can shoot Lee an e-mail and ask. He's not working on Foo stuff right now so it's hard to get him focused but I will ask.

So, I spoke with Lee and it's not gone, it's just on hold till the website gets re-worked for a new album when a new album is in the works (it's not so don't get all excited). He has some ideas but it is not coming back anytime soon.

Sorry kids.

well, at least for me, I'm ok with it. I don't mind the waiting, as long as it's not gone. it was up for 10 years, to be offline for 2, 3 (not another 10, please) is fine, I was afraid that the site became a square generic band one. I'll wait for it.

thanks a lot for taking the time to clear this up, Jill!

You're welcome! Just so you know, if I programmed the site it would have never left.

I was a fan of it too...
