A few observations in the form of over-generalized statements about a few of the forum subgroups:

Effects, Pedals, Strings and Things/Amps and Cabs: I am serious player with serious rig, wanting advice on something to improve/posting about a device for discussion 40+pages

Guitar Gear and Accessories: what is a preamp volume
---
The Emporium: "I am selling thing. Do you want thing?" "Yes I want thing. Here is your cash!" "Thanks! Good dealings with you!"

Classifieds:
---
The Pub: Non-satirical conversation about recent happenings

The Pit: baby joel and bears

I like UG better.

The average dude in the electric guitar section of TGP is a super uneducated neckbeard who thinks their preference is god-abiding law. Their classifieds are way better, though.

The median age and income of TGP users is far higher than UG's. I'm suprised their old, deaf ears can still hear the difference between NOS and cryogenically treated tubes, even when obscured by the sound of their cracking bones.

EG here is the definitive cesspit of retardation and drain clogging facial hair. TGP can't possibly be any worse.

I like that there is a bit more variety in some of the recommendations for amps. especially if they want to play metal here its automatic 6505 and if they are somewhat on a tighter budget the jca 50, or if they are really broke peavey vypyr... but on the other hand they are a hell of a lot snobbier for example if its not some insanely over priced boutique pedal they look down on you and say its crap. then there is reddit which is omg this spider iii and first act are amazing. I guess we are the middle ground some what.

I live out there now. Some hail me as a new CCC (Comedic Column Cleaner )

Two main factions: Those that hate every comment I post. and those who love every comment I post. There really isn't a middle ground. It's a very interesting community though. Such strange people with such strong opinions about things that don't matter.

I fit right in

If you don't run your vintage '59 LP into a Klon into your Dumble, you might as well just give up, at least if you post on TGP and take their advice seriously.

GG&A is by far the worst subforum on UG though. Bunch of old losers with more money and useless gear, most of which they probably don't use, than actual ability to play that just circle jerk over boutique tube amps and Tubescreamer clones. Meanwhile if somebody asks about less common effects, they'll be lucky to get half a dozen replies. And yet every "Which OD pedal?" thread has the same few guys asking about how the other likes that 17th new TS clone that he just got. They probably can't even tell the difference.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

There are obviously ups and downs. Forums run by oldies (although not similar to our resident oldies Arby and Jackal) have ridiculously tight rules and quite frankly have sticks up their asses. I had a post deleted on the AGF for jokingly (and caveating it with "just kidding ") saying that I would not spend 50 dollars on a single guitar pick because I'm not a moron.

So UG fosters discussion much better. The trade-off is that everyone here is an idiot child and so the discussion belongs in a trash can.
My God, it's full of stars!

Nah, you're not that person.

Not sure where you got that idea about GG&A though. TGP sure, it's common, but not around here.

Yeah, it's basically an amateur version of TGP. They've got the boutweaker elitism but without the expensive wall of amplifiers behind it.

Some actually have really nice amps and there's a bunch of regulars there who are quite helpful and patient to a fault.
#37
Yeah the GG&A guys are pretty nice, and the only thing they have a gratuitous amount of are barbecue grills

Threads don't get responses like they used to because the same questions pop up that have been answered dozens of times, plus in case you haven't noticed, this entire forum isn't nearly as active as it used to be

Do you even come into G G&A? We're normally warning people away from overpriced "boutique" clones. I think you have us confused with TGP.

Also I like the irony of someone from MT complaining about another UG subforum for being elitist.
