I've noticed that on UG, due to the lack of girls, users feel the need to give any female using the site excessive praise. Decent-looking girls are flattered to no end, girls with mediocre taste and insight are lauded for their posts, and profile views are soaring for any moderately regular poster.
Some of the girls end up thriving on the attention, trying to find opportunities to snag a few more guys on their lists and to flirt with, while others refrain, making profiles private or avoiding picture postage.

So, discuss.
Do you admit to treating girl users with special attention? Trying to cop an e-score?
Or are they any other pit monkey.
Maybe you dont know that girls exist
Or maybe you are a girl and want to lash out, either at UG or at me for this thread.
Fire away.

EDIT:
No, this isnt a revolutionary thread I'm not trying to change anything nor am I that bothered by it, lol. Just here for discussion.

i agree with you about most of this
i've had people not believe i was a girl because i post in the pit
Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the cake this morning!

yeah, that's an inside joke. i made it different colors and sizes to be obnoxious...

Yep. I noticed that any female UGer gets almost 2000 profile views per month.

Also, girls are rare on teh interwebz.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

Its the Internet, chances of ever seeing one of the girls is like a fat kid not eating cake

I will admit I look at the girl UG'ers different.

people are people, especially on the internet.

it's weird how many people will hang onto the belief that they've got a chance with a girl 2,000 miles away just because they like 3 of the same bands.

*+1000 profile views*

EDIT: I personally don't care about trying to "e-score," as they call it, but I am more polite when talking to girls. Also have to consider that there are way more guys on the internet than girls.

To the best of my knowledge I've never treated any female users differently than the males when they've said something stupid. I am maybe a little more polite when it comes to first posts though.

I'm more inclined to look at female profiles but that's about it. I don't try to 'cop an e-score' cause that seems ridiculously pointless :/

Yeah, it's way over the top. Certain people on here get way too much attention simply because they're girls.
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.

I think that girls should be giving a little bit of a praise wether in real life or internets.


But most of them are bitches anyways. hahaha

I see that you are one of those who "refrains, making profiles private or avoiding picture postage."

are you upset that "Decent-looking girls are flattered to no end, girls with mediocre taste and insight are lauded for their posts, and profile views are soaring for any moderately regular poster." Or perhaps jealous?... well maybe not jealous, that doesn't make sense.
but upset are you?

and I'm gonna be honest with you here, the majority of the people in the pit do not have lives. ergo, they tend to be slightly desperate. I don't know if you noticed the hot girls pic thread? Yeah....

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.

Surprisingly no. I'm not nearly as much of a horndog in real life or on the interbutts as I am in my head.

I'm a girl, and have never been treated differently than a guy on here.

However, since it isn't readily obvious that I'm a girl by just reading something I post, they assume I'm a dude. So for the eternal record of The Pit...I am not a guy.

yea thats about right,we have no lives all we think about here on UG is guitars,sex and guitars held by sexy girls and possibly booze
#33
Lol I dont really notice it, but thats prolly because I dont advertise my gender like most of the girls on here..and I dont have a pic posted of me in my profile. (doesnt help I dont HAVE one of me on my comp..but even if I DID I doubt Id have it on UG of all websites)

Not at all, it's just amusing to watch
Guys who wouldnt take a second look at a certain girl offline begin to flirt with them online. And a lot of girls are famous on here for no real reason.

girls are not rare on the web so much as they go to diffrent websites that dont have a geeky obsession, not saying guitars are for geeks but diffrent stuff but im sure that some of you like me play to the point it does make you a geek. So i suppose some of those people who live off of wow and other stuff are amazed to find girls who will talk to them.

Ill never have a chance with a girl that lives 20 million miles from me, so whats the point? I really see the internet as a genderless thing unless its a forum where theres a bunch of local people.
