That's my point though, the moderating is slowly getting to a point where people will have to be very careful as to what they discuss, and I come on a forum so I don't have to be courtious and worry about offending people as I do in real life.

Interestingly enough, I have never felt the need to censor myself, and for awhile I was fairly offensive by forum standards. Now I'm pretty much a moderate, and I've not changed.

So basically the point is, maybe you shouldn't have such latently offensive tendencies. If you want to be totally free go to a chan site or something =\

This paranoia thing is silly though, we're less strict rather than more here.

It's the frequency in which someone like Steve makes these jokes that's the issue at this point, and not nessecarily just using them.

I don't really care either way, I just don't see what he/everyone else gets out of constantly abusing the same jokes over and over.

Steve, you're not in a position to bargain.

If we banned everyone who trolled, told racist jokes, spammed, and the like, we'd probably start getting new users because the place would seem pretty friendly. But all the old users would be banned.

Alternately, the old-timers can try to behave just a little bit of their own accord and maybe we can get the best of both worlds. js

Hey mods. You're wrong.

http://ultimate-guitar.com/

See this place? There metal forum is full of much more douchebags and pricks than those who populate this forum. What's worse is that they DON'T know what they're talking about, and they DO taunt anybody for listening to hardcore influenced music, because, being retards, they don't even know where metal is rooted.

Some kids on here might make fun of deathcore, because yeah, deathcore sucks, but there isn't any hatred for users who post in the xcore threads, don't know where thats coming from.

But yeah, point in linking UG. The people there are bigger douches, but they still get a huge influx of new users. Because their tab site is huge because MX was gone for too long. Boo hoo, this site is dying, lets blame it on the loyal users.

How about this place?

I don't see how I can be wrong seeing as I haven't been making any specific argument except that it doesn't hurt to chill out on some of this stuff. If you think you've proved that wrong you're pretty inane man...because it doesn't hurt you to exercise a little bit of self control, I promise.

"heiling" stuff isn't a big deal because you're still keeping threads going. I think the bigger issue is when they get derailed into pages upon pages of bad anti-semitic, racist jokes. I know a lot of users think they're joking but I honestly believe it's gone beyond that. Maybe they started off joking.

It's just odd looking at old threads and seeing Dargon be..Dargon and us still being able to converse in spite of it. I don't get how these jokes became such a foundation of the forums. I'm not going to get all causal up in this bitch but it's pretty hard to ignore that the bad off-topic racist joking came as discussion lessened. I just read the first dozen or so pages of the Black Metal thread and even though it was basically a bunch of dick measuring it at least had legs of its own.

Dargon would say **** like:
A chromosomally challenged subhuman such as yourself has no place in black metal

And we'd all just ignore it and move on.

Now when someone posts something similar it becomes a huge circle jerk.

TimJim
04-23-2009, 12:36 PM
I wouldn't call a small subforum a thriving culture. The fact is that the forums' active membership has been falling steadily for the past 2 years or so, in direct contrast to the reviews site, and there has to be a reason why the growing membership of the latter isn't crossing over the forums. I don't think it's unreasonable to assume that the casual use of racist language which had become endemic on all forums
and maybe the lack of links and the hackings hasnt helped AT ALL


its not R&M that is causing this. i know this becaus emost R&Mers stay within R&M. its the old pit users that make life difficult for newbs

My two cents:

racist joking, however lulzy it may be is kind of lame. It has gotten a little bit out of control, but the fact is I stuck around through being treated like **** as a noob, and now people kind of sort of respect me maybe a tiny bit and don't give me **** as much because i've established myself as a user and a person that isn't completely retarded. if casual users want to post and get "scared away", they are replaced by people like me who post a lot more in the long run.

in response to the banning for going offtopic in threads or something like that... completely silly. idk, not to point fingers or anything but i think lee has been a little bit trigger happy with that ban button. people like Dan (dimmu burger) whos like the nicest dude in the forums have even been getting banned recently and for what? for continuing a conversation that arose in a thread that slipped off topic? if you complain about people not posting and new users not coming and then start banning people that DO post for silly, miniscule reasons, then aren't you kind of just choking the life out of R&M in a different manner?

I don't know how people can consider R&M as a whole as very 'noob welcoming'

Whenever some new user makes a decent thread asking a question, out of the first 10 posts, 8 of them are unfunny remarks that are basically just malking fun of the thread starter. Also, peple who aren't used to the way things work around here are immediately laughed at. Sure, lot's of impulse posting, but the forum in general is not that welcoming.

the2stranger
04-23-2009, 02:54 PM
I agree with Stormrider.
It's not that welcoming, the traffic for new posters is quite low if you ask me.
But I guess that's what happens if you have a tight community.

Lots of insider jokes/racist jokes.
Also lots of familiarity, calling people by their actual first name, makes it seem like a tight knit community.

MAKE A NEW ****ING DEATHCORE THREAD PLEASE

there's a bunch of fags posting about ****ing deathcore bands all over the place, it makes me sick.
This **** is retarded. We don't need to make a new thread to discuss the same genre of music, just so that you guys can pretend it's not the same ****ing genre of music.

Ulthwe
04-26-2009, 02:58 PM
But you know for a fact that most of the DM thread regs don't like deathcore, why not just have a separate thread so you don't have to deal with people derailing the thread.

hismajestythepope
04-26-2009, 03:00 PM
Because it doesn't matter if half the people who post in the thread don't like the bands, because this isn't just your forum. Kids discuss ****ing Haste The Day in the metalcore thread, should we make a mainstream metalcore thread then?

Ulthwe
04-26-2009, 03:01 PM
Honestly I'm just sick of the bitching overall, when we had the deathcore thread it really wasn't an issue, but I mean ENC is whoring his bands in the regular DM thread and that's just unacceptable.

hismajestythepope
04-26-2009, 03:02 PM
OMG a poster you don't like is posting?

Protip: death heads thread was getting dumb before it was split, both threads got dumber when they got split.

Edit: the point is, people shouldn't care that you guys don't know what hardcore is

Ulthwe
04-26-2009, 03:04 PM
Why do you honestly care, no one is making you post in the deathcore thread, I just think it acts well as a sort of peace keeper so some of the other users can post about deathcore in there without having other users attack them for posting the same bands in the regular DM thread, honestly I don't get after people for it nor do I care a ton.

hismajestythepope
04-26-2009, 03:06 PM
Because we don't need to make up genres to keep peace. It's ridiculous, just grow up and realize as many kids on this forum like new death metal. I only made a big deal when there was AN ACTUAL DISCUSSION GOING ON and it got killed because you jackasses don't even know what ****ing hardcore sounds like.

ATTN Lee on the deathcore discussion:
All I want to point out is, the old attempted deathcore thread failed.

Why? Nobody wanted to talk about deathcore. They wanted to talk about bad nu-death bands with too many breakdowns, and that's about it.

Were I to say, anybody like WBCC (liked by some of the deathcore fans on here), then ADB or H&D will come in and be like WBCC sucks, this band (that isn't deathcore, just monotonous deaht metal with too many breakdowns) is so much better.

And yeah. much more frustating situation than having kids discussing the GOOD deathcore bands in a non confrontational manner and then population transition to more oldschool stuff as different users log in and off.

It's basically a, we don't need a new thread situation. It's a Steve And Mike and whoever else complained about "poopty deathcore" blah blah blah, do you guys realize that the death metal thread was like, wanna talk about grind? alright? wanna talk about BM? Sure why the **** not? etc.

That fact that this is how that thread started, and now it's this petty little war of "THIS SUBEGENRE IS NOT 100% PURE DEATH METAL" really irritates me.

Nobody cares if you don't like a band. You can say you don't without it derailing a thread into an argument about what is and isn't real death metal or whatever.

so? who the **** cares, just continue doing that and talk about your "real deathcore" there. right now you are the only one who's irritated and bitching (creating "whitebelt" and "commercial metalcore" to somehow get your retarded point across), i bet the deathcore regs and the any other death head regs are happy that there's a new thread.

As I see it, it's not so much the word, it's the fact that juvenile children like 1338 took relatively inconsequential epithets and turned them into bad jokes, then proceeded to run those bad jokes into the ground.

I was going to edit that to say "modded Tyler out of sheer awesomeness" but I figured that might support your point if anything.

Haha I think you're well suited to be a mod tbh congrats man.

It's okay, I saw the secret forum and I know about all the people slamming me behind the scenes. Don't really recall you as one of them.

any way i could get my original stevie account back? it's permabanned along with every other stevie account

even if it's banned for a year or something i'd have it back now if i hadn't posted a nudie pic in the photos thread - i used to get real drunk and end up doing things id regret but im a changed man im out of rehab and im not even touching the stuff so if i had something to work towards itd really put my life back on track

Best way to keep out for gigs and that is through blogs from local zines tbh.

aye, i've noticed

not much I can do but try to ban a few accounts here and there, i'm not sure how to handle the rest so i'll have to wait until someone who does logs on

I would advise not to click on any threads at least

Stevie

these attacks are little more than a mild irritation

Meatplow
08-23-2009, 04:41 AM
Yeah. I lifted the ban on your account, I haven't seen you being a prick to anyone or spamming n00ds in the whole time i've been here so I guess its okay.

I know the digging function has been a bit messed up for a long time (it usually takes about two weeks for it to change). That's why I basically wanted to have no dig anymore. Some users said that it'd disappear after a while if I had no artist in the digging list. It won't disappear, though. Can one of the mods maybe take it away?

Wish

We cannot. It isn't a forum thing, but a review site thing.

Well, its not exactly a bad problem, more like a delicious problem.


Ya' see, I'm sitting here snackin on some of these corn pops and I just can't stop chompin' and i'm on my third bowl. I just gotta have my pops! Should I seek a doctor's opinion????
