We could be more welcoming I admit and could give newbies a longer period of grace.

One other point of note, we can usually separate the wheat from the chaff. If you have a musical opinion and it is reasoned well, we will notice it. So don't get scared off too easily!
This site is just too goddamn cliquey it's frustrating to even post on here if you're not in the 'in-crowd.'

Agreed. That was the pinnacle of this site.

I assume he means the mods, which technically is the in crowd.

I definitely wasn't referring to the mods. Take the radiohead thread for instance. I agreed with what ProggyMan/Slint/etc were all saying so I came in and counter-argued with the dp dude and then what happens? ProggyMan/Slint/etc turn around and start arguing with me. Seriously what the fuck? I repeat this site is too goddamn cliquey.

Well as you will learn people on this forum (like most) are EXTREMELY opinionated and usually looking to be right.

Even i am like that at times, but like now and most other times to lazy.

As long as you honestly try to intelligently defend your stance none is "against" you.


edit: and hey give it another chance. i would love if you did, considering you actually intelligently post unlike 50% who come by.

I generally dispute things I disagree with.

age requirements? haha jk
I really like the new release polls, and the album reviews are key. I wish they were combined so you go to a review and you see how popular it is here and who likes it (the album). I think I can see why it's a good idea to have them separate; so maybe you could move them to the reviews section after a few months/ combine with the review.
I'm pretty new so maybe you've tried this already? and the arcade sounds interesting...

I think it's easy to spot out genuine opinions and am going to enjoy checking out the music some of you recommend. I am mostly here to learn but will offer what I have to share. I think I might have to agree with the clique thing. I don't know, the first post I made (I think) was about Kurt Cobain's ashes being stolen and I was attacked instantly by 2 people. I thought it was off topic how that person just commented on how about I must have been thinking about it for awhile. Spam if you ask me but I don't know I am just a noob.
EDIT : Having questions like "Who is your favorite MB member?" in those six pack question thing doesn't help with the clique thing. Just saying.

Well i was going to PM someone at some point, but i'll just use this as permission?

One thing i've noticed (and this is strictly an opinion from a person in Britain) is that there tends to be barely no mods on during the day and they're all on in the evening, which results in lots of spam during the day which has is only cleaned up later on.
It's only a minor gripe, i'm not sure if anyone will agree with me?
