That guy annoys me. Hes not funny, his jokes suck and he abuses his mod status to no end.

I mean just look at the hai guise thread in the metal forum

Bo makes a really good thread on album reviews and grettys in there with a retarded trivium joke.

And can someone delete the hessian love chat thread, it just makes the metal forum look like its run by a bunch of 12 y.o's.

The bloke does what ever he wants and then warns and bans people that try to argue against him, no matter what the relevance of the argument.

Fair enough mods work hard and want to have fun but why not lead by example as well.

No. Greety is awesome.
Oh, im sorry, just because he annoys you, he should be de-modded. If that was the case there would be no mods.

Greety is a very good mod with alot of experience.

I've never met this Greety. Maybe he's abusing his mods a bit though since someone devoted an entire thread about him? What are everyone elses thoughts about him?

Not so much de-modded, just clean up his act a bit. The metal forums become a banana republic.

If you say this about greety, why not say it about cas? I cant even count the amount of times hes messed about with the forums for a laugh. And yet every laughs when he does it.

Why is greety any different?

I'm not sure why everyone laughs, It might have something to do with the mean age of users. Sometimes Jokes are legitimately funny and warranted, other times they just contribute to the trash. I can't comment on other Mods, I only generally frequent the metal forum, but the same should go for mods who take things a bit far and just post random crap.

Greety stays.

End of.

I think it's funny the way he runs his forum, you all acted like children in there anyway before he came along

Just because the Hessian Chat thread is an accurate summing up of the childish attitudes of many of the metal forum regs doesn't mean it should be closed. And hell, Greety didn't eve start it. And it's a good laugh.

He also certainly does not warn people just for disagreeing with him.

I think the Mods should behave strictly in the manner they want the users to. Mods especially need to consider what they're posting in a thread. Theres plenty of other large forums out there that have successfully curbed the amount of garbage and comments posted by users, which overall makes each visit to the site a more interesting experience.

Those places quite often get paid though.
Unfortunately we don't. I think we're being ripped off due to the amount of **** we have to put up with

But yeah...

DOWN WITH GREETY, DOWN WITH GREETY!!!



Although I do agree somewhat that we, the mods, should be trying to set some kind of example, the average age of this forum is probably 13/14 and so whatever we do, there are always going to be people acting their age no matter how we act.

And Greety needs an ego boost every now and then

No. Greety rocks.

I have a mancrush on him and he does a great job running the metal forum. You should be lucky that a mod in the metal forum wants to have just as much fun.

What a cop out. It would be foolish and narrow-minded to think UG is the best run forum. No matter how good UG is, theres always room for improvement, thats the whole point of a suggestions section.


Yeah, you get my point Andrew, I agree with the age thing too. I didn't want to bring it up though as most users get into guitar around their teenage years and I don't want to discriminate against them for that. The age thing has been successfully muted at another non-music forum I visit that has a mix of older and younger users. When the mods close a retarded thread they don't shut it with ' for the lolz' or 'OMgz really?, or turn it into an ever running joke, They explain to the user in strait forward English why the thread is shut and publicly warn them to smarten their act up. Squeaky clean behaviour from mods goes along way.

and deep down beneath the ice, I feel a stir for greety. (he works hard )

Just accept that this thread isn't going to change anything at all. Greety is a well respcted mod, no matter how odd/childish/br00tal he can be. Making a thread asking to sack a mod is not a suggestion that'll improve the site.

C'mon seriously, I know Greety's not going to get sacked, to much homo erotica around here for that . Read between the lines. You either understand what I'm getting at or don't.

I know exactly what you're getting at. However childish some mods may act sometimes, they still do a damn good job for the most part. There are plenty of other forums with much more childishness and the like.

Needs to be better. And you shouldn't compare UG with less mature forums, that comparison won't result in any positive improvements.

I say "for the most part" because, believe it or not, the mods are human and have their fallacies. If you were to totally destroy any humour or actions, childish or otherwise, this place would be nowhere near a community as it is today.

Greety's the most metal mod on UG. If he left the metal forum there would be riots on the streets of metalland!

Mods do a brilliant job.
When all the mods got "banned" by "teh_hammer", the whole forums went to shit. There was porn, excessive flaming, tons of spam.

If you think back to when there was an error with the servers. The ammount of shit we had to clean up because of users was difficult to even think about.

If it wasnt for the hard work of all the mods, this place would be like that 24/7. And Smods like greety are much needed. Dont forget they dont only look after their own forum, they check up on all the forums and whatnot.

I think we deserve to be able to have a little time off being sensible. And the way greety does it is perfect. He deals with un-ruley users fine and does it in a sensible manner.

If he abused his power, he wouldn't still be a mod. Mods are chosen carefully and out of 600,000+ members, he had it in him to be one of the 60 that moderate the forums. When you become a supermoderator or even more, an administrator, then come talk to us about the brilliant man you tarnish.

ridicule has been used to discipline people for years. In school when you did something wrong, they made an example out of you and that was the incentive to not do it again. By having a thread closed with 'ZOMG really?' it shows that, that kind of post is stupid and un-needed/against the rules.

The chat thread is a perfect example of showing people how stupid they seem to others and it explains, in a way that most people understand, why the previous thread was closed. For the most part I dont encounter Greety much but from what I have seen of him he does a good job. If people read the rules before they made the thread then they should know why the thread was closed so it shouldnt really matter if a mod explains it in the thread itself.

lol, what the hell.. Just because he makes some threads/posts for a laugh means he's a bad mod ? lol, i wish half the forums out there had a mod like him..

Every mod now and then wants to abuse his powers and make something funny, I do it too, doesn't mean that makes me or any of the other mods a bad mod/admin..

PS: The example of me was not that I do it in this website, don't get confused.
