So from your own experiences, is this the best forum on the internet?

UG has the humour and good advice(as long as you don't ask in the pit). I have been on a few forums and none of them compare to UG

No, all UG is is recycled memes, elitism, very specific and ridiculous rules, and Kensai.

4chan's not a forum.

Ultimate-Guitar is possibly the most popular guitar forum, for sure. I doubt it is the best overall.

Yes, but the guitar and actual help forums are good. The music one is also decent.

I was really just talking about the Pit. The other forums are alright.

/b/ is probably the worst forum I've ever been to.

If you can get past the terrible, terrible layout, you have to shovel through images that you really don't want to see, and loads of porn to even find anything worth anything.

Anyways, yeah, UG is the best I've come across.

but if they want something to happen, it happens
#24
/b/ is a pathetic excuse for a forum. Its just a load of random stuff, I don't get how people can go on that daily
#25
only in terms of guitar oriented material and the pit for general lulz and entertainment. other than that, UG is too angsty and elitist. you can find better help on more specialized forums than you ever could asking a general question in the pit.

Yes. Screw 4chan i don't want to put up with all the atrocious stuff on there to get a few funny moments.

UG has quite a special community, regardless of whether you love or hate it, you will always come back to it, and if you get banned - you'll get withdrawel symptoms.
#29
UG is very active but as far as rules go they are way too specific and the mods can be very biased. The only good thing about them is they generally don't care about swearing. It is kind of annoying how quickly threads are pushed off the first page though.

I never did. I don't take the forum that seriously.

No, because there's always some sort of popularity contest. If wanted that, I could just go back to secondary school.

Stop confusing UG as The Pit. The Pit is like a jar with traces of jam in it, it's there to attract all the wasps and flies so the rest of UG can eat their sandwiches in peace.

Something about this post smells like genius.

And I to whoever said they like Facepunch better...I kinda do too, except that there the rules are so unbelievably anal that it's like a Michigan prison.

4chan isn't a forum guys...

Also, I'd say this is among the best, but it's all opinion, there are plenty of people with decent advice, plenty of inexperianced people who need advice, a good lump of actually amusing threads (the whole "free box" fiasco had me rather amused for a good while) and some things that are funny for just switching off and going "heeeh, sex joke" or whatever (like the endless shoop threads).

But the smaller forums have their appeal, the definate sense of community, where the "community" on UG (well, the pit) is pretty much "Hey look guys, Kensai said something, let's all lick his rim".
