Okay, I have noticed some of you have been becoming disillusioned at the lack of interesting... anything happening here. I tried performing a grand necromancy on Guess That Metal Tab, but that went down like Winona Ryder on anyone with a Gold Record.

So, with it being a time of merriment for you all, I pass the question to you, dear forummers, what would you like to do? Would you like to inject this place with some humour? Possibly suggest a game that wont deteriorate like an Epiletic infront of a strobe light? Or maybe have something constructive we can contribute to in group fashion? Something that involves socialising in other ways? Also, what do you think of these analogies? Too blatant? Too cliche?

Anyway, i'd like to think that as a mod, I can do a little more than sit on my arse, locking threads and banning people. OK, so the sitting on my arse won't change, but you get my point.

Suggest away gentlemen. Give me something I can work with here.

We need something big, with something that will bleed into into the real world. Some contest with an actual prize, or a project that people are willing to make happen.

Or, you know, mod me.

I like the idea of a project of some kind, the only drawback is that anything that requires actual effort is doomed to failure.

And as much as I cherish your presence around here, my Semitically-inclined friend, I cannot grant such a request.

And a regime based on my own personal taste and sense of humour? I love it.

But UG won't. Sahri.

I concur

some of these threads are like 3 years old. I'm pretty sure no one gives a rats ass about whatevers on page 52 in the metallica thread.
#11
While starting anew seems like a good idea, it's a bit out of my bounds.

I'm thinking something entertainment based. Maybe people would put in a bit of effort if they knew that they were going be the centre of attention and have people laugh at something they create? Maybe, I dunno, just trying to stir the thus far empty pot.

I dunno...

Maybe some sort of metal orientated instant knockout league, where we're given relatively simple tasks on a head to head basis with only the winner proceeding to the next round.

Or I suppose someone could pose questions (keeping with the same knockout format), and we could have a panel of judges to pick the best answers between the two candidates.

How about "Underground Band of the Month"? Each month, a reg could post an unknown band, link to youtube or myspace or whatever, and provide a description. Hell, maybe playing the "I'm from a well-known Internet site" card could even get us interviews or downloadable tracks? It worked well enough when I started "Celeb Rig of the Month" over in GG&A...

^That could work, least something like that would guarantee participation from the current competitors.

I was also thinking something that works like kind of a panelist thing. Something a bit like The Drunk Tank from RoosterTeeth. A few burning questions and topics regarding the latest happenings in the world of Metal And a few personally selected regs to come up with some witty responses. Kind of a Weekly/Bi-Weekly Sticky or something.

The only problem with that is this

The underground band thing could be good. It'd be a way to bring up bands without making a thread for them that people will ignore and let drop into the abyss of the forum's archives. Maybe even a 'Hidden Gem' kind of thing. Suggesting a release that many have overlooked.

Well guys, keep up the ideas, but i'm liking a few so far, so if you guys wouldn't mind as well mentioning which ideas mentioned so far you'd be up for either seeing or contributing to, that would be appreciated.

The Panel thing is something i'll pursue off my own back at whatever point I can come up with something. But keep going with the input.


^No. Most people here who didnt spam the shit out of that thread would also concur.

Yeah, I'm thinking maybe something like that+ anybody participating writes a review of that band based on the songs they hear?

If it didn't work last time I can't see it working this time. I don't actually get why you, Dyers, and greety before you, and all of the other 'people here who didnt spam the **** out of that thread' - why can't you all put up with a metal chat thread?

I think they were getting angry that it inflated our post counts..Thats all I can see them getting mad about. It was a clean, fun area where people can chill and talk about whatever, but between metal companions who probably have similar hobbies.

I'm probably a total dick for it, But if there was going to be a thread for socialising in here, I'd rather it not look like im walking into Lee Evans' hall of Comedy Jewels. Any one that has been created, I just don't ever feel like participating in. I just dont like the idea of something I couldn't give a **** about sitting like an unsinkable floater at the top of the forum. Not to mention i'd have to check up on the fecker too.

Sorry, but I ain't backing that idea.

Not to mention that we have the Substance thread. Which is currently going perfectly well as far as i'm concerned.

Well, firstly this is UG and any questionable content is reported pretty quickly haha. I guess it's the metal forum, but I guess you could implement a kind of system where we report any bad content, and if we don't and you/other mods find out = removal of metal chat thread.

But you're right, there's no need for a metal chat thread while the Substance thread exists, which leads me to another question: why aren't you backing the idea of a metal chat thread, but supporting the idea of the Substance thread?

I had taken a leave of absence during the Metal chat thread, however, that's also all I can see that was "wrong" with it. If it inflated our post count, then so be it. Users in other sub-forums of Music, and Bands & Artists and whatnot are also inflating their post-counts in their own off-topic chat threads. Why should we be secluded from that?

I'm personally all for the underground band of the week/month thread idea, I would definitely contribute, and I'm also all for the chat thread idea, because I'm pretty sure deady's getting sick of ass bum-breaking his Substance thread.

Although, I would have to say I'm definitely for a UG Metal Forum album as well, we've got some fairly talented people lurking about in here, we've definitely got plenty of vocalists, guitarists, and bassists (not sure about drummers) but I'd be all for creating something like that. It would make me and I'm sure a bunch of other users fairly happy as well. You don't even have to organize it, Dyer's, a few people could opt in to do it.

Well at the end of the day, the Substance thread has done its job talking about various areas of the Metal culture that aren't really broad enough to have a thread dedicated to them.

In other words, Dyers - do you monitor the Substance thread? Because it's just about the same as the metal chat thread except with half-assed attempts to discuss metal every now and again.

How about a heavy metal cover contest

- X amount of people sign up, they are paired off and each given a simple metal tune to learn ( like Person A and Person B get Paranoid, Person C and Person D get For Whom the Bell Tolls, etc. )

- Whichever one does the best cover moves up to the next round, with songs getting more and more difficult each step of the ladder ( Cemetery Gates, Flesh and the Power it Holds, Deliverance, Battery, etc. )

This way people can get better at playing, learn new songs, and have the chance to show off online and stroke their E-peen ( which is a big thing on UG ).

Also, the contestants can be given a certain amount of time to learn the song depending on it's difficulty. Round one should be songs that require no more than a day to learn so the contestants are given one day to learn, record, and post, the next round they could be given two or three days ( and so on depending on the difficulty of the songs for each round ). If someone doesn't make the deadline then they forfeit. The submission can be mp3 or video

Solo's can be optional as well, and you could host one for guitar and one for bass.

And a way to keep things interesting is to have whoever is holding the contest choose songs from all of the heavy-metal sub-genres, and not just big ones like thrash, power-metal, and NWOBHM.

Just an idea... haha

I do monitor the substance thread, and while it occasionally goes off-topic, it never goes to the point where everyone is discussing their personal lives and recycling shit gags on regular rotation. If it did descend into that, i'd apply the lock and key.

But thus yet it has stayed what I deem as reasonable, unretarded discussion. And since it isn't stickied and isn't obvious, it doesn't shout to new guys "HEY, WE CAN COME HERE AND TALK BOLLOCKS".

There was a reason it was stopped. So you can argue the point all you like, but i'm afraid it won't change anything.

Big Idea.

It's a bit much effort for this place to manage, not to mention that not everyone has good enough gear to record. Not to mention it'll end up just as UG United did.

Plus, isn't there a forum for that kind of thing?
