I'll give you the grand tour. We are in the n00b forum. This is where you introduce yourself in the thread at the top. You can also ask questions refering on how to use the WEBSITE. In the pit, you can talk about whatever, as long as it is along the guidelines of the FAQs.

In the Bands & Artists forum, you can talk about different bands, but there are sub-genre forums. You have classic rock, for guys like AC/DC and Rush;
Modern Rock, which you can talk about Nirvana, 30 Seconds to Mars, HIM, etc.;
Metal, which is very strict about the bands you talk about, so read the FAQs in the metal forum if you want to post there, it's for the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Slayer, Pantera, COB, and all them;
in nu-metal, you talk about KoRn, Slipknot, Linkin Park, etc.;
in the shred forum you can talk about Poison, Malmsteen, Rhoads, Marty Friedman, Ratt, etc.;
Punk & Ska is for AFI, Mustard Plug, the Misfits, Rise Against, etc.;
Pop-punk & Emo is for MCR, Paramore, Green Day, Fall Out Boy, etc.;
Hardcore is for bands like Bullet for My Valentine, Lamb of God, Shadows Fall, the Refused, anything hardcore, metalcore, or New Wave of American Metal;
Alternative and Indie is bands on independent labels and alt-rock bands that weren't nessecarily big. I don't know much about that one;
Blues and Jazz-you know, BB King, Chuck Berry, Larry Carlton, blues and jazz guys
Other is for Rap (eww), Country (eww), and techno (meh), anything that isn't covered in the other forums.

If you want to talk instruments, there is a thread for anything guitar, whether it's electric, classical, acoustic, or bass.

If you write a song, put it in the Songwriting and Lyrics forum and see what people think.

You can promote your band in that forum.

I don't know much about the UG Contribution and Site Feedback, but the longer you are on the site, the more you'll learn.

Lastly, there is the Forum of the Banned, or FOTB, and trust me, you don't want to be there. The only way to get there is if you get banned, so read the rules and you'll be okay.


WELCOME TO UG!

No problemo.
Don't worry, not everyone harrasses n00bs. Talk to all the good guys, and if you want to be noticed in a positive way, DO NOT repeat anything I did when I first joined. lol

EDIT:My mistake. When I said you can promote your band in "that" forum, I meant the Promote YOUR Band forum.

Don't worry about it. Just think before you post, and be civil towards other users. It's worked fine for me.

Try posting in the pit... it's simple, loudest poster is right, no matter what the argument.



A lot of people around here are nice, don't be shy.
