Whats with this shit? They all suck lately and i get no info. from them short of release dates.
I get that its hard when musics not how it used to be but shit like the maynard article or the updates with lambesis are just crappy journalism. Is it lack of news or is it really just the staff?

It's your fault. Seriously. Also:

Ignoring your grammar, what does that even mean?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Sensationalist news titles
Constantly focusing on controversies and specific music stars
Daily articles on how Dave Mustaine feels about random shit, how Ozzy thinks Bill Ward is fat, and that Slash isn't getting back together with Guns 'n Roses

UG news has gone downhill, yes. It's almost TMZ these days

I did this a couple years back. It's not like I actually look up tabs or anything or use any other forum here anyway.

They're purposefully written to be sensationalist and spark outrage in the comments. Unfortunately a lot of people take the bait. It's best just to not read them.

Every Friday I love reading the comments in the articles where they reveal the results of the Wednesday Question. It's great reading them bitch about the writing staff for choosing the results, despite the fact that the staff just counted the votes and posted the results.

The best part is that Hydra has to clean it all up.

i don't come here for news because it's usually not news by the time anything gets covered here. i just scroll to the bottom for the potentially funny comments.

The biggest problem I've seen is misinformation and misleading titles, but honestly, it really does feel like they're just trolling...but it's always been like that. The one about a new SOAD album is a good example, it's better to not even report shit if there's nothing to report...or at least make it obvious that they are all speculation.

Oh, and the One Direction, Justin Beiber and etc articles, that's the most generic attempt at trolling ever.

UG articles is one of those rare occasions that you actually decrease in knowledge and brain power after reading.

User CP has been my unofficial UG homepage for quite a while anyway, but I do check the front page to see if any articles interest me (today the A7X one did). If you want better articles, get in touch with the editorial staff and write some yourself - it's not us (mods) or CC's like Hydra who write them or vote them on etc. so moaning in here isn't going to achieve very much
Hey, look. Sigs are back.
#32
Yeah, in certain articles like half of the comments are criticising UG/the article's writer
and occasionally they have a point, but bitching there isn't the way to change it

and at least 8% of the comments are gawping at lemmyisgod97's avatar

Also, if you dislike the articles (which you should), you could always read, you know, a real, journalistic music website.

See, I think this is the problem. There's not enough quality control. Probably because anyone can write an article, and the editorial staff don't seem to be very good at proof reading.

UG should either severely reduce (if not eliminate) it's news presence, or get some journalists.

Since Hydra has become a cc I've gone back to my roots. I'm slowly scaling up the frequency of my comments to take the piss out of the people who post there just to make Hydra's job a little more (un)pleasant.
