they keep posting articles about courtney love and mike portnoy and all these petty immature people and their personal misgivings.

the majority of comments on these news articles are negative posts towards this website about how said user doesn't want to hear anymore of this useless drivel of nonmusical "news".

why doesn't the UG team listen?

I come back to this website because of the great online community and the great supply of peer generated tabs and music product reviews and to avoid fun and tricky popup ads. the news section is almost always a joke.

it would be a great example if UG could surpass the maturity of the temper-tantrum-throwers of the musical world and ignore their whiney complaints. yet, their outbursts continue to remain "news."

so will a admin passerby maybe read this article then shoot an email up to the paid staff about this? do they care? who is saying they have to post these low-intellegence articles? are they paid extra? does it even work that way??

but anyways thanks for making the cool stuff free

UG has a news section?

Not sure if serious...

Sarcasm - Get to know it.


You think they would put a bit more time into the section that everyone see's first when they go onto the front page. Awful articles, severe lack of error checking and the comment section system with the + and - is awful.

This for sure.

This thread should be in site recommendations anyway.

Well, if we're honest here, and I think we're all capable of it, I think we can admit that no matter the source or topic, whether it be ABC, NBC, CNN, UG, Rolling Stone, or the Wall Street Journal, there is always crap gimmick news alongside the more compelling news.

For every NY Times article that states a fact and provokes us to think, there's a TMZ article that makes us vomit and shake our heads.

UG isn't any different from any news source, really. Obviously, despite the outpouring of distaste for these articles, there are enough people that like them to keep them coming in.

'Not sure if serious' can be translated directly into 'Not sure if sarcastic' in this case. I'm a bit worried because I have to explain this.

This site wouldn't be as endearing without the ridiculous news section that we have all grown to love.

I don't know what the **** you're on about, but I believe they should leave the whole "music" concept behind. There would be much more revenue if there were more Kardashians, not these grease haired idiots and there "music".

Sometimes I can't stand some of the people on here, but there are definitely a solid few that are great. I love it when somebody new comes in and asks a question about gear or whatever and like 5 people reply within a minute with step by step instructions, links to helpful websites, recommendations - the whole nine yards. Thats the only thing I like about this site anymore, other than the tabs. Too often though do I see jerks come on and just talk down to the person for typos and being retarded enough to ask for help.

I wish you would tell me your secret about avoiding those tricky popup ads though, because I can't even search for a tab without 3 different ad videos all playing at full volume at the same time and a huge popup shows up with the close button randomly hidden in a corner.

Then again, yeah, its free. I'd like to think we complain to improve it, not just to bring it down.

What did you say, so we can assess the 'pwn' for ourselves?

I told them I enjoyed their article about pop musicians outdoing classic rock artists in every field imaginable.

Came back and my comment was gone.

lol you made a good point about something very good but because you said a band i don't like was not bad then you get a thumbs down lololol

I got about -50 for telling people to stop whinging about either bieber or nickelback. Arseholes.

I think a majority of those are just used to promote an artist/album...poorly.

(Article title) "*Insert name here* says *insert stupid comment here*"

(End of article) "By the way, check out *insert name here*'s new album out in December."

Personally I'd rather have that then a load of 'stfu f0ggat!' posts.

but then that's probably because it saves the CCs a hell of a lot of work.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

The news section is generally pretty poor, though the Steven Wilson interview on the front atm is nice. It's all these "music sucks now blah blah bieber sucks blah blah lolz Nickelback" articles that are annoying.

How much news do you really think there is in the world of music? It's better to have some fresh discussions of less-serious stuff than keep the stale articles on the main page for days and days IMO.
