I find the "Only" threads work well for things that are continuous, such as the Walking Dead thread. For something that isn't always evolving/changing, an "Only" thread isn't the best.

The Pit feels less like a community, and more like an apocalyptic internet wasteland where stragglers get eaten alive, and everyone's dying to be recognized for their comedic "genius".

But, I like it here. I also like the site as a whole, despite certain grievances.

i like to come on here to help people not waste money... but total dickweeds post under me talking trash about how i FORM MY PARAGRAPHS OR USE CAPITALS> luckily their parents will pay for their internet, so they dont have to post with their fones. if i help one person, its totally worth it to me. so in retrospect, i like this site if assholes stop talking shit, and practice their ****in guitars. they need it.

No, I only come here because I'm a masochist and I like beating my head against a brick wall.

Tabs can be useful though

Sense of humor? I got banned for a month one time because I responded to three different instances on one thread with "wow", pages and plenty of other posts (some my own) apart. Apparently that's spam.

Huh. That is pretty messed up. I mean it is totally spam when you do it more than once in a thread. Or once on each thread. But unless you got previous warnings or something, you should have explained yourself more thoroughly in the FOTB.

But still, that doesn't exactly disprove their sense of humor. Mostly because 'wow' isn't much of a humorous comment. That's just them doing their job.

Before I joined this site I would come here for tabs and read news and the forums. I did that for about four years, and then I joined. Now that I'm a real user on here, I have fully realized that UG jumped the shark several years ago. If websites can jump the shark.

I have a hard time believing they have a sense of humor when they would have had to be deliberately searching for it and having a bad day simultaneously in order to have even cared.

And given the nature of that thread "wow" the only legitimate response to most of what was going on. This was back in the day before facepalms were invented.

I just joined the site on a whim a few years back when I started playing guitar. Oh, and I also asked nicely for a couple Richie Kotzen tabs, but no one replied. Such mean people.

Forgot all about UG until around 2009 or something, I think. That's when I started using The Pit and realized that this place need community post-rock albums.

I wasn't very cool back then, but I'm pretty damn cool now.

Well, I don't know. Maybe it's just the mods nowadays. Again, I'm sure if you had explained yourself in the FOTB or at least messaged the mod you could have gotten off the hook.

Honestly I always thought mods just made the FOTB for them to go complain amongst themselves. I never really thought they took appeals seriously there.

I know what you mean, things were way more strict back then. But the time you're referring to sounds like the time when UG was ruled with an iron fist. Years ago. I mean, I've been banned for silly things before too.

But times have changed.
