Right, enough of people taking bad advice. If anybody knows somebody knows their ****, or has had decent advice then please mention their username here.

And vice-versa. If you received bollocks information from anyone please name and shame them.

I'm fed up of new kids on the block getting terrible advice and buying useless kit because another completely knowledge-less user tells them bad info.

Who to listen to:

fridge_raider
axemanchris
doommaker

Mr. Pillow

Who not to listen to:

moody is pretty good around these parts.

I'd like to think i'm pretty helpful too

edit, There are some people with pretty poor advice but I don't usually pay attention to them since they dick around and act like this is the Pit.

Please don't do this to R&R..... the other forum has one and its stupid, you shouldn't need a list to validate your information. Is it really that hard to just ignore stupid posts?

I'm gonna have to go with this, most people either never read these, or take them to seriously and only listen to people on the list whether or not other people give good advice (also if the people on the list give bad advice some people automatically go with it even though better advice has been posted)

^yeah, I know what you mean, the list definitely shouldn't be taken too seriously. Usually, you can see what the good advice is, because it's validated by several people posting intelligent posts with similar advice.
There is poetry in despair.
#9
I'm not saying don't take advice from anyone else, but I have definitely seen people buy bad products because someone who doesn't know what they're talking about recommended it to them.

Maybe a "These are the products to buy" thread would be a good one?

I'm not disputing the list idea per se, I'm just agreeing with the fact that some people get the wrong impression i.e. think the people on the list are all knowing, and don't listen to anyone else.

I know what you mean though, but to be fair, people shouldn't rush into buying something simply because one person recommends. What might be nice is an entry level gear thread, one a bit more up to date than the FAQ and the gear review thread. We could list good, reliable options for beginner gear and a short review, basic setups for certain budgets etc.
There is poetry in despair.
#11
^true.

Perhaps this could be a list of people to PM if you need specific help with something?
Also, a huge list of good gear would be a really great idea, however, have fun putting that togeather and having reviews/personal experience to back up your claims.

ehh.

"Who to pay attention to/ignore in Riffs & Recordings!"

I would say that this thread would be what to ignore. There's bad advice going around (the guy recording room ambience for his vocal tracking for one) but that's part of the recording experience. If you buy something based on what a faceless typist on an internet forum tells you then you deserve what you get.

And now I'll never get on that list...
#14
I think this thread is complete bull****. I also think I am one of the instigators of this thread because willieturnip the Mucker Puncher was geting mad because I didn't post a six line warning that what I say is not always true and my opinion only...


I'm going with occub, Kid_Thoraizne and ebon00. This thread is complete BULL****. It is very discremental to people who just want to voice there opinions, be heard, and try to help.
..I was watching my death.
#15
This is a bit of a silly thread. If someone has a problem, then anyone's attempted help is better than none. If the "help" is just plain stupid, like saying "delete system32, it'll solve all your problems", then the person asking for help should be smart enough to pay attention. Besides, I thought all the people who are mature as that didn't venture out of the pit.

Also, the people on the helpful list (although I agree, they're great contributers) can't know everything, so someone who has a very specific problem might need help from someone with a very specific area of expertise.
#16
I really like the idea, but as usual the only people who'll look at it will be guys who don't need to.
Plus the idea of a 'who to listen list' always seems strange to me, doesn't it undermine the whole purpose of a forum? You might as well go on 'asktheexperts.com, or whatever.

Every forum is the same, you get a lot of clueless kids regurgitating the same misinformation they've picked up elsewhere, and it gets harder to pick out the guys who know their stuff.

Definitely worth a try Willieturnip, but i reckon the people who ignore it will inevitably be the people who most needed to read it....

And if you don't know anything about recording gear, how else are you going to get the information? A lot of people come here without a clue on what to buy, and people from this forum share their knowledge and they end up with some great gear for their needs and budget.

I'm so happy to be on the "Do Not Listen To" list. Made my ****ing day. Really, No Joke!

Thank you to those people that are on the "Do Not Listen To List" with me.

willieturnip, I think you should be on that list with me. Do not listen to this thread, or the people in it for that matter.

That is a WAY Better list moody07747. It isn't completly canceling out what others have to say. A trust list is a somewhat decent idea.

I was wondering why he put you on the "Don't Listen To" list. Personally, I think you help me alot, and a whole bunch of other people. You've helped me the most out of anyone in this whole R&R forum. I don't mean like supporting my side in this thread(Athough it is nice) but like all-in-all you've helped me with my very dumb and nooby questions, and the hard to figure out ones, and the normal ones to.

I'd like to take a moment to thank Kid_Thorazine for all your help and all the trouble you went through to help me.
