Greetings Pit-Monkeys,

It sometimes seems that, while UG changes, the Pit stays the same. The Only threads remain, the noobs get banned and the mods kick ass. You're all valuable users, and we invite you to the new UG project - Underground. Take part in different actions and contests, our programmers and editors support is guaranteed. If you want to realize yourself or your work to be displayed on the Community Page , come on over to the Subway Station and show yourselves off.

The above post is a quick summary for the impatient among you, who want to see what we are on about! For those who want to learn more, here's all the info you need...



Imagine the UG Community as a city.

Every city should have a high-speed transit system, and UG City has one now. We call it the UnderGround Railroad. We have UG Profile groups interconnected in a new and innovative way.

What does it do?
It takes you, the UGer, to activities on UG. Both within the groups and on the UG forums. It's new, so there is still much to build. But we already have a couple destinations with more on the way. Each group handles a different aspect of the UG experience and will continue to grow, adding more events, competitions, and services, as time goes on.

The Subway Station

Your point of departure on your journey.
Introduction, and news when new features are added to the system.

The Library
Blogs, diaries, essays, poetry, humour. If it's about the written word, you can discuss your interest and share your works here. We'll have a monthly blog contest. You can also make recommendations for blogs to be featured on the Community Page.

The Musician's Guild
Guitarists and all musicians, working together to create new avenues for expression on UG. Share your talents with others, both through your own work and by helping others with theirs. Learn where to get involved in UG Album projects or even start new Album projects of your own. We're now adding a composition competition. The winner will receive a special feature on the UG Community Page. You can also make recommendations for mp3s to be featured on the Community Page.

The Community Hall

We celebrate People - as individuals or in Bands or in Profile Groups. You can submit your own UG Band/Artist profile for listing on an upcoming directory. Just for fun, we have a game called Role Playing. We're adding a Profile Style competition where you sign up and your profile is judged for the "wow" factor. HTML coding/background images, pictures/embedded video in the About, etc. And you can make recommendations of People or Bands or Groups to be featured on the Community Page.

The Gallery

Pictures and Art. Fine photography, graphic design, drawings, photoshopping, or just snapshots. Share your own work and help others get involved. We've added a special section called The Exhibition Room, where UGers can submit a link to their own work, if they would like to be considered for contributing Cover Art for UG Album projects. Share your talents and discuss your interests. We also have a competition to create a UG Mascot. And you can recommend any picture you find on a UGers profile to be featured on the Community Page.

The Suggestion Box
It's located in The Subway Station, but there are links to it located in all destinations. Here you can submit your ideas for anything you'd like to see added to the Railroad, or any changes you think could improve the Community Page.

What will we add?
We have plenty of ideas, but what comes next depends on what you want. Sure, we had some help from the UG Office, but most of this came from UGers, just like you. And we want to do more of the same - get UGers involved in building UG City and new development projects on the
Railroad.

How can you get involved?
You can participate in the events we link to (like UG Album projects), competitions we hold, make recommendations for items to be featured on the UG Community Page, and make Suggestions for new events,
competitions, and services or additional Destination groups to be added to the Railroad, and maybe even new pages on the UG Main site.

Put the U in UG
And by U, we mean YOU!

Envision the possibilities.
And share your visions with us. Together we can build UG into the community you want it to be. And the UnderGround Railroad will take you to places you want to go.

Visit the UG Community Page
And see the changes that have already made to your page. Then share your ideas with us for even more changes you want, when you ride the UnderGround Railroad, beginning at The Subway Station.

Ah I wondered when this would snake its way into The Pit.

I keep telling myself I'll check it out, but haven't had a proper look just yet.
I shall do so over the next few days. And maybe whilst I'm cooking dinner xD

People always tell me I solo like Zakk Wylde. Thats how I know that I suck.

I don't know. I mean, it looks like a good idea, but in reality all I see is a glorified group that has links to other groups. I know that's the point... but to me, there is no point. I have bookmarks. But again, it is a somewhat okay idea.

Except these groups collect links that are featured on the Community Page. And host competitions and collaborations and whatnot. Just saying.

That's EXACTLY right.

The Subway Station is just a common point of connection, not much more. Links to the other groups and a bit of news and info. The real magic is in the Destination groups. That's where action is.

If you wanna bookmark the other groups, that works, too. But for people who rarely check all the other groups, the Subway Station has info on new activities as they're added to the groups.

I'm not sure I understand it fully, but to me, it just seems like a minaturised forum, separated from the existing one, and in a slightly different format.

You have a photography section, and a writing section for example, but so does the UG forum, and in a more accessible place.

It seems like I am missing something here....


Also, I fear change
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)

Wasn't this up and running weeks ago? I'm sure I found myself at the station.

Hope it works out well.
