So, we've all read the stickies (or at least you should have). We've seen the basics and the honorary "Who to listen to" list. The only problem is that more than a good number of those who comprise that list are no longer active.


So what I suggest is that we, using this thread, nominate new names to either be added to, or completely replace that list. All we simply have to do is nominate someone we have repeatedly seen helping out and handing out some grade A advice and knowledge on a regular basis.

I'm an EG regular, and the name I'd like to throw in the pot is Tom 1.0.

Although Tom and I are probably polar opposites on the guitar ideology charts, that hasn't stopped me from seeing that the guy really knows his stuff about many of the Metal brands the kiddies today like to salivate over. Especially Ibanez. He gives out good advice, and does it often. The only thing wrong with him is that his avatar looks like a man.

Give a who and why. Let's get this thread going. VIVA LA REVOLUCION!


Current List & Nominations List:
Tom 1.0 (10)

Gregs1020 (9)

Dave_mc (5)
jj1565 (5)
ippon (5)
311zosovhjh (5)

LP_CL (4)
AcousticMirror (4)
JustRooster (4)
grohl1987 (4)

KenG (3)
littlephil (3)
forsakn (3)
ecisthebest (3)

BobDetroit (2)
bubbtubbs (2)
mmoltertx (2)
greeny (2)
Quailman (2)
laidback (2)


Fred The Shred (1)
biga29 (1)
bubbtubbs (1)
Offworld92 (1)
roc8995 (1)
al571832 (1)
Fatalgear41 (1)

Though this could be a good idea to have a WTLT list for Eg, though I dont know if anyody does check the stickies,

I would however have to add the following to an EG one:

JustRooster
Gregs1020
Fred The Shred
LP_CL

1977 Burny FLG70
2004 EBMM JP6
2016 SE Holcolmb
#3
i would nominate tom1.0, LP_CL, biga29 (?), littlephil, roc8995 (lol he's not even on it? wtf)
al571832(numbers are wrong), KenG & BobDetroit. (i know i'm forgetting a ton).

thanks tom!
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I dont think the people that would benefit from this sort of list will seriously read it if its stickied, I think its better to give everyone a voice and just discuss it, most ppl are happy to jump on somebody being silly.

if this was done properly with nominationss you could have a sticky of just one post with a list, no spam thread, just a single list, people might actually take note of the regulars then

^ +1 the spam thread's awesome, and I don't want to get rid of it, but it does make the nomination thread pretty much useless- ideally we'd have two.

yeah, good idea, rooster.

the honorary list is meant to be for inactives (and they can get moved back if they become active again).

big problem is it takes a lot of work to keep things up to date. Plus I'm terrible at remembering who i think should be on the list- when i see a post by one of the regulars who's not yet on the list, I go, "Ah, he/she should definitely be on the list"... but then when i next go to make nominations my mind goes completely blank

I can't think of fred the shred offhand, but I second tom's nominations (plus the nomination for tom too). I'll have a look about and see if i can think of anyone else.

EDIT: +1 on greg's noms too.

EDIT #2: lol, colin's not on it? he knows more than me in his sleep

simply ben's good. and that other dude i always get confused with simply ben.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

most of that list could get made "honorary". to be fair.

and there are a lot of good posters in EG.

and it could use a decent chat thread.

i'd toss SimplyBen and a lot of the pedalboard regulars on the list too.

forsakn, mmoltertx, greeny23, as well as laidback,ECisthebest, ippon ffs, gotta have ippon.

I started getting a little list together. This is by no means official to the UG forum or site, just amongst us. Who knows, maybe the Mod team will pick up on it and decide they like it.

I also like the idea of an EG chat thread. It works out wonderfully for S&L and Metal.

EDIT:

I'M UPDATING THE LIST AS YOU GUYS POST. PLEASE GIVE FULL USERNAMES.\

DOUBLE EDIT:

I'm doing this like the Good/Bad Trader list from the Gear Classifieds. After we get a pretty large list, I'll find a cutoff point for nominations. Say we get 100 people on a list. I'll make our "Unofficial" list only those who received 5 or more votes, and the rest will go on an "Honorary" list.

and technically we need to add the old list as an honorary except those that still post, like daveMC, jj1565 etc.

311zosovhjh as well should be on there, although he doesn't frequent EG, he knows his stuff.

EDIT: I'm also seconding ippon and ecisthebest.

Nice, but I do have the feeling this may end up like the list in GG&A - meaning that noone will read it.

Nah, seriously though, that list looks pretty good already.

jenny and dave are already on the old list.

which should just be added to.


and those that aren't familiar moved to honorary.

imo.

yeah i don't think anyone should be taken off the old list (not saying this because i'm scared of or don't want to get kicked off or anything, just i don't want anyone else to get kicked off)- most that should happen is that those who aren't around any more get moved to the honorary list, and if they ever come back we can move them back to the normal list.

again thanks seriously.

I was just turned off by the way it was worded

I get the need for updating these threads.

I just think dropping a line to a mod would
have worked in cleaning it up.

and then. additional people could be
added like said.
rather than a cleaning house.

Yeah, I am sure it was with the best intentions though, I agree the lists need to be adjusted, but I dont see why the people already on the GG&A one would be taken off it and if you or people like Dave were taken off I think there would be a revolt

I've never really understood the purpose of the "who to listen to topics". Can someone fill me in? Do people actually read it? And don't people always believe what they like to believe and don't believe what they don't like, no matter if it's a knowledgeable regular or an ignorant noob telling them?

I'm flattered by the nominations though.

Well, its just more of a general guide on people who know their stuff. It doesn't mean you should take their advice word for word if its on a subjective topic, and obviously it doesn't mean they are the only people to listen to. Its just a list of users who should be listened to basically.

yep sure.

the original intent was

(a) to reward people for posting (as long as what they were posting was good)- give people an incentive to make informative, helpful posts and hopefully they'll make more of them, which should help the forum

(b) give people a list of people that are probably talking sense, in case they get a whole pile of conflicting advice and don't know where they are. Granted most people don't read it, but if an odd one does it's worth it.

(c) it gives you something concrete to point to if an annoying troll is making mischief in the forums, you can point to the list and say that everyone talking sense is on the list.

Then it turned into a spam thread for the regulars to chat in, which was fun too

yep, exactly.

it doesn't mean everything written by everyone on that list is gospel- it just means, on the law of averages, if someone on the list writes something and some random person you've never seen before writes something contradicting them, odds are you should listen to the person on the list. It's not a guarantee, and by no means should you only listen to the people on the list... just it's about all you can do.

oh and I second the nominations for all the regulars in the wtlt list (can't be bothered listing them all)

All votes updated in the OP. Tom's already got votes, kiddies, I'm tired of adding to his total. We've got some midrangers who need boosts however (wink wink).


Also, this list is not replacing the old one, but it is also not including it. That one is stickied. This one is unofficial and updated.
