I'm doing an anthropology project on online forums, and since I've been part of Ultimate-Guitar for several years now, I figure I would use this site as a "shining" example....well anyway, here are a few questions that you may choose to answer:

  • Age?

  • You're REAL location...i don't need you're exact adress and GPS coordinates, but i am also assuming you live on planet earth.

  • Any non-personal information you would like to share?

  • Any thoughts on UG?


Thanks in advance...most answers are acceptable, because I am after all trying to get a realistic response from UG.

that's fair enough but you won't get a cross-section of society by coming into the pit. All UGers are musicians for a start, also most pit-dwellers are immature.

i dont want a cross-section on society...my project is focused primarily on forums and online interaction in general. I'm very aware of the immaturity of the pit, and this is fine, as it is part of my project to describe how people react online as opposed to the real world. I almost encourage it...almost.

I hate a lot of things; including people who express a hatred for everything. It's quite the conundrum.

It's [the pit] like freshman year of high school all over again... everybody picks apart the behavior of everybody else. They latch onto spelling and grammatical errors or what kind of music the person listens to, etc. Everybody desperately tries to be a UG Celebrity. Everybody tries to get in that one quirky comment in hopes of being sigged. Once one person comes up with a clever joke (or introduces it to UG from another source), everybody else latches on to that so they can be part of the in-crowd (e.g. "buttsex" comments) and play it to death. It's quite a sad and pathetic place. I really only find myself posting to help others with things they are having trouble with (physics homework, iTunes issues, this survey, etc.) or when I have a problem with something myself.

Non-personal information: The M3A1 "Grease Gun" was issued as an improvement to the original M3 design which was a cheaper-to-manufacture alternative to the Thompson sub machine gun in WW2.

Thoughts on UG: Good place for all kinds of information, primarily ofcourse on guitars. But you can find answers for basicly any question you can think of here. Plus you can make people laugh by saying things like "buttsecks?"
We're only strays.
