So Pit, I was just on google searching for the forum of the banned (to my surprise, "ug forum of the banned" is actually a suggestion), when I got sidetrack by results of other people posting about UG (on other forums). I checked the rules and as far as my eyes could see it's not against them to post links to other forums..

I just found these amusing . what do you all think?
ALSO: I realize you cannot get to FOTB unless you are banned

UG is a huge forum. That is why it needs these 'stupid' rules, so we don't get swamped in spam all the time.
So come on in

UG is a about the largest guitar website on the net, of course there will be people with bad experiences with it.

Yeah, there's a lot of rules here that seem arbitrary, and there are some mods here I don't particularly like, but the faster pace and (much) larger community makes up for it IMO.

...We're not?

The heavy rules are probably in place to ensure exactly that we don't _completely_ turn into *youknowwhatplace*. It makes sense.

And yeah, I've been warned for mentioning that site before.

They have there own opinions, a lot of which people would agree with
if you think about it, what they say aren't lies about the forums
People here get banned for having different views on guitars, amps ETC.
members ridicule people for not being the same. If you really think about it, its just like a high school, only with 1,500,000 members.

Those guys are talking about the gear forums. I'd hate to hear what they have to say about us here in the Pit.

I'm a member of a few forums. This one is one of the slower, non elitist ones. They're acting like children.

"pshh i think the UG forum sucks.ok so i posted a link to youtube about a vid of a guitarist and they banned me at first for 30 days, and when i tried to compromise, they're like "you just keep coming back for more.now your banned forever.I actually liked that forum until i found out how strict it was.."

I loled at this. If the dude just read the rules and saw, "hey don't make pointless threads" he wouldn't have been banned. Also, I like how someone posted a little farther down the page, "just give them another Email address."

They didn't read the rules. It is quite simple. Read the rules, then follow them. I guess they couldn't get that through their heads. I have been banned once. That was my fault. I didn't read all the rules through out. That was my fault. People need read, and think before they act. We are bigger then most of those forums anyways.

I thought all the rules we had were like common sense, though. I have only ever skimmed the rules and have never been banned.
#24
Is the average age of the people here really 12-13? Because that really doesn't seem right.

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?
#25
Everything is outlined clearly in the rules. Read them through once and you're good to go, all the stuff in there is common sense. Anybody who gets warned/banned deserves it. The mods here do an awesome job of running stuff.

i agree with those threads. the mods are way too strict, and the average UG'er is immature and filled with sarcasm. except for the DT.

The mods are ridiculously harsh sometimes.

That said, I've never been (actually) banned in four years. I have gotten some pretty outrageous warnings (I got warned once for posting *reported* 2 minutes after someone else had, for **** sakes).

I'm afraid to say I agree with them. I actually think some of the mods are asses to some members most of the time, acting all "oohh yeah, I'm amazing..." I don't really see a good reason to allow this behavior, but of course, most of you actually justify that kind of treatment whenever someone complains.

Reminds me of the rule of "that website"... there are no real rules about moderating either, enjoy your ban.
