The dragonforce page used to be really funny, but it was changed and now is deleted and locked. I think if someone did a good job with it, it has potential168.122.202.34 22:41, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately, regardless of whether someone could write it well once, the Dragonforce article attracted way too many vandals and just terrible writers to make it worth keeping around. It's blocked until someone actually writes a really good version in their userspace and then volunteers to gatekeep it to make sure vandalism stays out. Until that happens, it's not becoming unlocked. --Mr. Monkey Sockmonkey.gif Pant-hoot here. 22:53, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Quite a shame, really; I agree that there is much potential. If I wasn't just too much on the busy side, I might give it a try. Oh well...--The Lieutenant Yodel EXTERMINATE! One Meeeelion dollar$! MUN 02:07, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, any band that gets away with naming an album 'ultra beatdown' definitely has some room to be satirized in. Trouble is, most pages never go past 'they play rly fast lol.' What about you? DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE THIS ARTICLE GOOD? - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon.gif(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 02:52, Nov 19
Any and all bands that have a song called "Operation Ground and Pound" also deserve to be made fun of. Trouble with Dragonforce is, really, all they do is play fast. They're not particularly that interesting. But yeah, like they said. If you have the guts to try and make this a good article, go ahead and give it a shot. After all, we featured Megadeth after a user bravely crafted it into something funny. --Mr. Monkey Sockmonkey.gif Pant-hoot here. 03:10, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Because I lack the ability to write funny articles, if someone writes it, I volunteer my time to keeping it's quality second to none. Btw, I think Dragonforce is awesome. Colin Explode fire.gifALL YOUR BASEExplode fire.gifHeaney! Casa Bey Superfly Portfolio 03:16, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
I heartily second the testimonial to DF's awesomeness, and admit to not only owning the last two albums, but also enjoying them. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon.gif(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 03:33, Nov 19
EPIC! And what's with everyone calling the first track on Ultra Beatdown "Starchaser"? Colin Explode fire.gifALL YOUR BASEExplode fire.gifHeaney! Casa Bey Superfly Portfolio 03:36, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, it is the most obvious word in the chorus. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon.gif(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 05:49, Nov 19
I thought that Dragonforce was a videogame. That makes sense. Dragonforce: The Band, is a terrible idea. Ergo, they suck. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:21, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Except their album 'ultra beatdown' contains a bonus track named 'strike of the ninja.' QED, they are awesome. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon.gif(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 00:52, Nov 20
I'd ask "Is that a Cacophony cover?" but I know they can't play that fast. --monika 00:54, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
I dunno, Cacophony could definitely at least come close, they sound pretty good from what I've heard. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon.gif(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 01:00, Nov 20
Jason Becker can't play for shit these days. Everyone thought he was going to be so good, but then he just got cocky and stopped practicing. --monika 02:10, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
DragonForce is TEH AWESOME!!!1!!1!!1!!1!!1 THEY PLAY SOO FASSST!!!!!11!!!1 Like Lightning. --GDawg816 | Talk | GDawg816, he pwns all n00bz n roxxors all soxxors 18:54, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Dragonforce wins a "who can sound stupider on guitar" contest for the UK against Marty Friedman (representing Japan, of course).

I am offended

Did you really just compare Megadeth to DragonForce? --monika 05:34, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

All musical tastes aside, Dave Mustaine could probably drink Herman Li and Sam Totman under the table. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon.gif(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 05:49, Nov 19
He'd also manage to kick them out of their band while doing it. --monika 05:59, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
And you have to remember that they would all kick Dave Matthew's ass. That's a fact too important to forget. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:26, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

That was. Now my thorough explaining has ruined the joke. Dran you, Modusoperandi, darn you to heck. Colin Explode fire.gifALL YOUR BASEExplode fire.gifHeaney! Casa Bey Superfly Portfolio 17:25, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Whoever posted that video, I gotta say thanks; 7 minutes of pure shred-metal guitar wankery of epic proportions! - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon.gif(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 02:04, Nov 21

You're welcome? If you want wankery of epic proportions, there's a video somewhere of Jason Becker in fuckin' high school covering Yngwie while totally goofing off. It's more than Yngwie deserves. --monika 04:55, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Hah! Wankery is great, but epic wankery is unparalleled. Also, I can't decide whether I think Yngwie is the man, or a loathsome, miserable human being. Probably both, or something. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon.gif(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 21:56, Nov 23
If you want a serious answer: Yngwie would be great if he played all that on a violin, like classical musicians do. -- Random Oranssiviiva.jpg Man 08:37, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
No he wouldn't. Instead of being a Paganinifag on guitar, he'd be a Paganinifag on violin, and there are already plenty of Paganinifags on violin. The only good thing is that he'd be more obscure and his influence would be far less reaching and there would be a lot less mediocre speed metal and neoclassical shred that completely misses the point. And I say this as someone who loves speed metal and neoclassical shred. --monika 17:48, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
He would have some muscles instead of fat, he would probably be in a better physical condition otherwise too, his music would sound far more relevant than it sounds now. I say this as someone who's totally bored with any kind of metal since it's now been overdone for at least 10 years and can never offer anything new. As a "paganinifag on violin", as you put it, he would at least be covering something original, preserving its state, instead of just wanking all over the place. What point are you talking about, by the way? That everything sucks? Everybody knows that already. If there's something else do let me know. -- Random Oranssiviiva.jpg Man 08:37, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Paganini was nothing but a left-handed twit with an inferiority complex whose father didn't love him enough to be able to afford an appropriately flipped instrument. He compensated by playing a lot of notes very fast so no one would notice how sloppy his right-hand technique was and then pointed out that none of the better musicians could play as many notes as fast and therefore he was better. He was the original wanker and had what he been doing been proper music, all stringed instruments would have been facing the other direction from day one. I'll give him one thing - his body of work makes fantastic exercises for plateauing intermediate-level violinists, but then Malmsteen had to go and mistake it all for music suitable of being played in public! HOLY FUCK ARPEGGIOS! (My, that was fun. We should have more threads like this.) --monika 14:07, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Obviously we should. Paganini being a wanker doesn't go a long way towards explaining why all metal has to sound and look the same. If those bands are good why don't they have original ideas? Afraid of losing fans, I know that one. Anything else? -- Random Oranssiviiva.jpg Man 14:30, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
I get the distinct impression that you and I are listening to different metal. --monika 14:35, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

In response to the original accusation, I compared a band article that is constantly a piece of crap (Dragonforce) to a good band article, Megadeth. The bands are nowhere near each other in terms of me actually caring about them... (Megadeth wins. Clearly.) --Mr. Monkey Sockmonkey.gif Pant-hoot here. 01:36, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Free of snark (for once), I'd say it's easier to write a good article about something good though. But of course that means I'll be even more impressed when someone pulls a good DF article out of their ass. --monika 02:10, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
