  • Affenknecht and "the others"

    I would like to know your opinion regarding this portal when comparing to other Rammstein related websites (you can name them

    What are the PROS and CONS? What are you missing and what are you enjoying the most?

    I spend most of my time on Affenknecht. LOVE IT! I go on a couple other sites...but am a devoted Affenknecht user. I have referred the site to all my Rammstein friends. I would like to see some updated FAQ's. That'd be cool. I trust the Affenknecht source. I feel the information I get from the site is dependable. I am so grateful Affenknecht is there! Thanks for ALL you do for us fans!

      I think Affenknecht is unique in the sense that it is the only one that I know of, that has a version for 10 different languages simultaneously. This fact alone makes it stand out from every other site dedicated to the band.

      It is also an extensive source of information about Rammstein, although not 100% up-to-date in absolutely every type of information (e.g., FAQ, stunts, equipment, books, etc). On the other hand, is unfeasable to keep so much information up to date on the fly, but regardless of that fact, it is still a respectable effort from everybody involved in this project. There are not many websites that have as much, or even more information than this one.

      However, I was expecting the forum to have a much bigger and extensive community that the one that it can currently be observed. I'm not saying that the comunity is bad (it is really good, actually). I'm not even saying it is a bad thing. I'm just saying that I expected it to have much more active users in any given moment than what it actually has now.

        I have yet to find a R+ site that has so much to offer, with information about nearly every aspect of the band, including the less obvious things, such as cover bands, people around Rammstein etc.
        While some of the info seems to be outdated, the news page always has fresh news, as do the song lists and albums

        I think the site will become even better when users become more active

          I can't find any cons from the site at all. This site have everything what Rammstein fan needs. Opportunity to be a part of this community, find everything on the site, lyrics, albums, tabs, etc, etc and of course, get the fresh R+ news. What I have found out (someone can correct me) that in Finland we have two "official" pages for this kind of things. And hell yeah, Affenknecht is better But the guys on the Rammstein-HQ have done a great job with their site! They have forum and news and I don't know have they something else, because to me (it's not working 100% with IE) it shows that they are still updating the page. And I guess they have been out there before Affenknecht. Following them pretty densely of course

          Enjoying the most that the sate have so much information. No need to google something, because I'm always 95% sure that it will be on Affenknecht

          I'm glad to be a part of this as a moderator!

                  A con about this website for me is that there are so few emoticons. Is there any chance more can be added (like thumbs up, laughing, facepalm, banana, ninja, paranoid etc.)? For me it's crucial to differentiate the whole a bit, because often a remark without a fitting emoticon can be more harsh or too formal or whatever.

                      If I were to make a suggestion, it would be to clean up some of the lyric pages. Some of the German words are wrong on songs, like Donaukinder. Some of the English translations are also pretty rough. There is also a lot of unnecessary Nazi talk in the comments.

                      My favorite Rammstein site used to be Herzeleid but it's no longer updated..I'm not even sure what other Rammstein sites are still current anymore. I made a list of some like 5 years ago and they're all dead besides the official ones!

                      Also want to add that I also wish the forum had more active members! There's a lot of chats in the lyric comments. Maybe on the lyric pages you could put big links that say "Discuss this song on our forums!"?

                          Saeda, I don't think there is a better English site then this one. there are very active forums in other languages, LIFAD itself is pretty active too. facebook LIFAD is very much alive and active. But in terms of information in English gathered in one place this site is cream of the crop
