Suggestion Box Thread

The suggestion box is a thread devoted to article ideas and inspiration. In this thread you may suggest ideas, and use ones given. Whether you write columns or lessons, or you simply enjoy reading them, you?re always welcome in this thread. Everyone?s suggestion is welcome! The old suggestion box can be located here, as you will notice there is quite a bit of spam, this is why we have composed a series of rules, please follow them!

Suggestion Box Rules

1. Please do not suggest already mentioned topics!

Please check our column and lessons archive thoroughly before suggesting a column topic you would like to see written! It?s our goal to keep the archives as clean, and unique as possible.

2. Notify us when you have picked a topic!

If a particular column topic catches your eye and you?re interested in writing a column on it please post in the thread notifying us and the members. The last thing we want is multiple columns based on the same topic. It would be a shame for both the members writing and the readers!

3. Write columns you want to write!

Please do not use someone?s suggestion because you think it will receive a high star rating, along with flattering comments. Pick topics you know fairly well, and be sure that it inspires you!

4. Do not suggest biased article topics!

Please do not suggest or write articles based on a bias topic. One sided rants are not acceptable in our archive. It?s a simple concept to understand and follow, just keep your column original and be sure to include facts on both sides of the proposition.

5. Do not plagiarize!

If we catch you plagiarizing a column or lesson you will be given a warning. This is easy to follow, but you would be surprised how many disobey and steal others hard work. You may use quotes, and yes even article topics similar to theirs, but copying the article in its entirety is called plagiarizing and is not acceptable!

6. Check our archive first!

Look around the columns pages to make sure your article hasn't already been written.

7. Refrain from spamming!

Obviously, this thread is dedicated towards solid suggestion making and writing columns. All spam comments, and unnecessary comments will be deleted without notice and a warning will be handed out! Please keep it clean!

8. Suggest appropriately!

When suggesting an idea of any sorts do not be vague! Please try and include a detailed description, title, and any other information that appeals to the article in its entirety!

These eight rules were written by high voltage and will be enforced by Rankles, eeyoredragon, zappp, and high voltage! Follow these rules and you will be on your way to becoming an excellent columnist and a great contributor to UG!

Elaborate more on what the columns would be about. We had a good set not long back that were genre specific where people wrote about a brief history of a genre and then suggested some good underground bands to listen to. Maybe we should start something like that again.

well the origanal idea was that it would be about what theory they used so maybe it could be like 'tips to write punk' or something like that.

Alright, get this. We have this token right? And when you put up an article/suggestion/feedback you get one. Then, you now have a token right? Well if you gather up the most at the end of [enter time period] you win something. Something wanted; some kind of woman perhaps. I know it's a stretch but it's possible. I know it's vague but anything will spice up this place at this time.

Just trying to get a few new faces here. Good ones.

Hopefully those already with lessons submitted can receive tokens. Perhaps we can also base it off the ratings of the lessons. That way we don't get an influx of crappy ones.

How about an article on MTV's effect on popular music, and the decline and fall of guitar-based rock/metal?

A) I want an article on strumming. Especially for acoustic.

B) I think the UG Lessons should get a DMusic account so they can add links to sounds in their articles. Let's be honest, seeing a bunch of Ds and Us or arrows to show up and down strums means a lot less if you can't hear it too. DMusic is free and you get 75 MB worth of space. A high bitrate wouldn't be needed for such MP3s and they'd be short, so you could probably cover all the new lessons with one account. I think we're teaching music, so we should be able to hear it. It would help greatly, IMO.

ive seen on another forum where theyve partnered with imageshack, so when you post a new reply you get to host a number of images at imageshack, and dont need to start an account for it. i thought that would be good, and would stop alot of the comments on how to post pictures
