And a few hours after their announcement, they decide to remove 'Blood on The Dancefloor' from the bill, so stay tuned for updates on a replacement support act!
Official post from Combichrist:
To our fans,
As you’ve seen with all of our tours, when we select our support acts, we attempt to bring acts that will help introduce Combichrist to fans outside of our fanbase. This has worked well for us in the past, and it was in this spirit that we invited Blood On The Dance Floor to tour with us. Like all announcements, we knew that this decision would be met with some concern but we thought that the different styles would be the source of conversation. We were not aware of the controversy about their past behavior. It has been difficult to read everything posted today; our sole goal is to bring you a kick ass tour that you can be excited and proud of and it’s become clear that we won’t be able to do that with the choice we made. As a result we have released Blood On The Dance Floor from this tour and are rethinking our direct support. We expect to have a new announcement for you shortly.
Thank you for your honesty and integrity.
You stand by us, we stand by you.

Contest is open to both guys and girls!

To enter, simply submit your picture as a comment on this thread.
Deadline: August 4th (you have 2 weeks!)
Fixed a couple small bugs regarding the recent privacy updates:
Age-restricted blocks bug fixed where certain people were wrongfully blocked.
Fixed bug where new privacy functions were only available to premium members. Sorry this was not meant to be a premium feature! As usual, only premium members can see who viewed them and who rated them, as well as no ads, broadcasts, and other goodies.
Also made it so that if you have recently received a message (inbox, comment, pic comment, status comment) from a user, the age-limit and friend-limit blocks will be lifted for that user.
Thanks for the feedback, if you guys have any additional suggestions on how to improve VF, let us know!
New Privacy Options available on the 'edit settings' page:
You can now choose who is able to contact you!
You can set age minimums or age maximums, and you can also set it so that only friends can contact you on VF.
This feature will block users from sending you inbox messages, comments, journal comments or status comments.
I do recommend not restricting your contacts to 'friends only' in particular, because people won't be able to message you if they're not your friend. However I know some people do want extra privacy.
The new privacy features are still in beta testing and I'm adding some more features / options to it, so feel free to give us your feedback!
phoenix I wasn't referring to people that have the issue of setting their age as something stupid like 100 then saying they are 18 in their about me. Now where did I specifically say obvious fake ages like 69 or 100? I believe I was referring in general terms. If you have to say in your About Me that you're a different age than what's listed, then I'll assume you're a liar. Period. Say that a guy says he's 21, or, 22, or fucking 30, and his About Me says he's 15. My first assumption would be that they're a sexual predator, or something. If a female says she is 19 and it says in her About Me that she's actually 15, you might as well admit to being a predator.
My original comment had nothing to do with people that lie about their ages. I was discussing the technical aspects of the privacy setting itself, and how it relates to the fact that some people start on this social network as a minor but are now adults. someone who starts a profile today as a 17 year old could want different privacy setting right now then they will 2 years from now when they are 19, but if those settings are locked from them they would have to make a new profile to change that. That is the point I was trying to make. AT no point did I bring up people that lie about their age, or people that have differing ages set in their profile. you completely missed the point. I'm done with this thread.
