Is that in the tune of the giant bell found in any generic clock tower?

Ok not so much anymore, D-ab-lo is what i say.  I cant be bothered with pronouncing the first 'o'. I swear this was one of the first topics ever.

How about we issue AFBOs (Annoying Forum Behaviour Orders)?
K, lame joke aside..
Something like:
Strike 1 - intopic warning, and polite PM
Strike 2 - post deletion, and serious PM
Strike 3 - ban!

It would (should) certainly get people thinking a bit more before they go posting mindless drivel.

Ok, so among some of the 'elders' there has been talk of the direction of this forum... And how we can improve it.  Unfortunately it almost seems doomed...

You see, although VOTW are 1 small way to keep a forum interesting (and even they are becoming fewer and weaker) what really needs to happen is people THINKING.
Don't just post anything for the sake of boredom. 
Think about new ideas, technique and the like, in the world of diabolo, then post about it... but FIRST, do your homework... has this trick already been invented (there are tons of sites out there to which you can not only look on, but should have already checked out really [and if you haven't, quit wasting time posting here, and go solidify your foundations]), has the question already been asked a BAZILLION times, AND most importantly of all.. does anyone care? As in, does anyone needs to know you are bored?

There is only a limited amount of information, technique, etc... which can be said/shared.  Once that is all said, there is little chance of revival.

The forum starts up and everyone shares a whole load of useful information and people ask new questions and everything is great. 
As soon as everything is said, 1 of 2 things can heppen next...
1. the clever people search and find their answers already so don't need to post.
OR, and much more noticeable
2. the dumb people post the same questions again, and clutter up the forum by annoying everyone with their instantness. 
Unfortunately both of these happen at the same time. Then everything goes sh*tty all the important people lose interest, the kids take over.
With the sudden overload of complete w*nk, the attention is diverted elsewhere and a new forum is created... and so the cycle continues.

Just a thought.

It stands for Music Happy Diabolo. 

I think the classical remixes they always use are awesome.

I've noticed that none of he diabolists i talk to have seen this, and it hasnt been posted here (as far as i can see... oh boy i cant wait to be corrected)

It will show a selection of the skill level in Taiwan.. and this isnt even all of them, there are others who rocks equally!

It also includes a nice fast exit from a double armstall.  Oh and some new smoothness from William (unfortunately nothing really new... but still so so smooth)

AND (yeah there is more to mention)... Jack is 11

I've used butterfingers and beard a lot before, but the friendliness and unbelievable delivery speed of firetoys makes it my favourite now.

Yeah i've done sun, double sun, sun to arm stall, sprinkler, and sprinkler suicide out.  Sure, i only managed a max of about 5 ott after any of them.  But hey, that's not the point right  ;)

Yeah sweet!  Nice one Zack.  I especially liked how you got out of the arm trap into a backwrap, as we all know that one comes out in a frontwrap, nice :)

It's 50Mb, very good quality, and mp4  :)

Sorry about the delay, i hope people are still interesting.

I should probably now comment on it... That was awesome!  I really loved some of the passing stuff, 4 looks really nice low down like that.  There were some super cool 1 diabolo suicide things in there, and a lot of other crazy cool things.  I also really enjoyed the skate-around shots.

ya, i'm downloading now, didn't realise it was so long but seeing as no1 else is playing online RPG's eating all the bandwidth i can download at a decent rate.

Sean (mod edit: Don't you mean Norbi? ;)) if you could still get the 45MB version up for those with slower connections that'd be good.

Yeah, sorry about that.  I randomly went away fpr the weekend... real spur of the moment thing.  I was in town and someone called me up saying 'im coming through town to goto Plymouthg, want to come?' so i did.  I was away from Friday-Now.  I had nearly finished converting then my computer froze for the first time like ever!

I know there is now a smaller file, but mine will be small AND quicktime.  be ready in a few hours (that's allowing time for complications) if everything goes to plan.

reckon you could do a version at about 30MB coz 116.8MB is way to much


I'm on it.  I disagree strongly with 30Mb = bad quality on 15 minute videos.  I reckon i can get it down to 45ish, and still have it in fully watchable quality... I'll get back to you later/tomorrow i hope...

Yeah, as Tijn said... it's underground.  I can't show you the whole video, it was illegally filmed!

There are a few copies floating around... so you may see it sometime...

Found it, in the middle of another video.  So i've kinda cut it out for you.

Not so clean, but it'll do.
