I just have one more comment to make, if some of you older posters didn't want the thread to get so large, why not just lock it in the beginning so that your circle wasn't disrupted? I don't get it? This is supposed to be fun. I understand wanting to maintain some sort of integrity for the thread, but if we can't joke and have a good time what's the point? :shrugs: And calling some here pathetic is completely out of line. I'm not trying to start trouble or any arguements, but I just think everyone's feelings need to be taken into consideration.

You can't lock a thread or ban certain people from entering as far as I know, it's a free message board :lol:

And no one says you can't joke or have fun. There has always been plenty of fun and joking going on in this thread ever since it was created. The problem is that things aren't a lot of fun anymore for quite a few people with the way things are going now. Which is understandable to me, because I don't care to scroll through endless pages of users having personal conversations or pointless posts like "I agree lol" or "Out of likes again!" either.

If you read through the first 300 (400?) pages or it usually worked like this: a topic or two were discussed for multiple pages (meaning days at a time) and it was structured and continous. Now it's an interesting post here, tons and tons of boring spam, an interesting post there, spam spam spam, etc. It's a mess basically and that's what's frustrating.

I think this thread has run it's course, that's why those horrible manips keep popping up.

I don't think a thread like this can run its course, because new things to discuss will keep popping up until this band completely dies. And even then some people will probably still want to specualte about or talk about various topics.

@Frey Out of likes. :rofl-lol:

It does seem douchy, yeah, but it's understandable it happens. 650 pages, damn. I'd rather never go on mygnr again than be forced to read all that (though to be fair I've read about 550 of them, so...) Life lessons from the Internet - something that was awesome to you once might not be as awesome anymore, even if it's still awesome to others. Also, thank you, lord Chairman, sir, for always having brilliant problem-solving ideas. :lol: Your suggestions are great, imo, and should be taken into consideration.

:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm: see @nonok this is how the arguments get started in the first place.

 

Nah, that's just @killuridols and her firey South American self speaking, she's just really strongly opinionated and unapologetic. You guys shouldn't start fights over it. I obviously have my own opinion that's much stronger than I let on, but I've never liked taking sides over here because I'm here to talk about Guns, not to make adversaries.

Hi, great to see you back! (at least for a couple minutes) :P

Not only most pictures have been posted to death.... Now they are PHOTOSHOPPING Axl and other GN'R members to make it look like there's some bromance going on :facepalm:

Back in the days of the original women of this thread, we would never do such pathetic thing. We found the meanings in REAL pics and even though sometimes it was "forced", a lot of pics that were never seen before we got to discover and that was cool.

Having to photoshop a GN'R member onto another it is just pathetic and disrespectful and that's not how we used to have fun here :thumbsdown:

I'm sorry the Index never happened :(

It was a project of some of us here but truth is no one ever put on the effort to index the first pages and this thread grew so fast and so big that I really doubt someone will do it but now but we could have some sort of "warning" or "advice" text in the first page of the thread that sort of guides people until what page it is worth to read, lol :lol:

 

Yeah and the so-called Women's party to be held in Europe, of which I wasn't part and I was always left out :rofl-lol:

 

I think there's still the same kind of info that we had before (not much, really) but the people who are good to read into it are not around anymore or not giving a shit about it :P

Most of us, originals, have become rather busy and not being able to keep up with the thread adds up to getting "lost" when you're back, especially when the thread goes so fast and most of it is spam, one liner replies and jokes that take up lots of pages.

My absence started in December and it has to do with lots of personal problems, new comminments, new responsabilities and one general boredom from the shows (which are now almost all the same) but also with being discouraged by some comments that made me realize I was not surrounded by the same people anymore and that the whole vibe of the thread had changed, decreasing in quality of debates and increasing in nonsense, spam and waste of bandwidth.

So I guess the apolyptic lines of Axl have become true: "nothing lasts forever, even cold november rain"

:shrugs:

 

And it's great that you've been around more lately, too. :heart:

Now actually to be fair, I remember quite a few photoshopped Slaxl pictures from even before the thread was created that just started floating around here afterwards. The cringe of Photoshop has always been looming around, unfortunately. I hate photoshopped pics - simply because they aren't real. :max:

Anyway, it's not your fault the index never happened, or anyone else's, for that matter. It's just impossible to do it, this thread is bigger than Axl's ass hats. I guess the first 150 to 200 pages are the really golden ones (unless someone is more interested in the latest news, which would be on the last pages).

I absolutely relate to the part about not having time, having more responsibilities and especially the staleness of the shows. I have some faith for the future of the band, of course, but there's really not much to talk about right now and most discussions are dull, so in order not to be tempted by the dark side and start complaining, I opt to just stay away from mygnr - it's always been a mess of a forum, if we're being honest. I was a lurker for years before I made an account because of the reunion and it was the same shit before, too.

As for the people, debates etc. - well, I think it's just the natural flow of events (or lack thereof), the boredom and the vastness of the thread that lead to this (and by this I don't mean "bad, awful people" like someone might take it, I just mean the recycled and dull stuff), not the people. For the most part. Would be divine if @Lumikki was here, though, not gonna lie (hope she doesn't get mad I'm dragging her into this). :lol:

 

Edit: Fuck, this place moves so fast even my latest comment is behind. :( I'd encourage you guys not to fight, but we all know how that's gonna go, so, by all means, duke it off if it pleases you. :lol:

and @Frey we also talked about putting some of the pics on the first page of the thread, remember? Those of "baby axl", "axl's parents", etc. I'm aware that - without a closer knowledge - it may be confusing since these pics regularly pop up on IG. 

It would be good if there was a function that enables you to view all pictures posted in the thread, it would make it easier to browse... :ph34r:

Not true :max:. You know you were invited as the cherry on top, jumping out of the cake and eating your idol at the end of the party :rofl-lol:

That's a lie... I invited you and @Andy14 to stay at my place, as an attempt for the party to be held in Portugal and we could chat about Axl's ass and all that, but the plan was aborted as Andy forgot to make the invitations and TB forbade Axl to attend, that's the only reason why it's not happening :ph34r::P  We're gonna have a party though, I'm hopefull. It's going to be in Malibu...I just can't think of a place there where we can all stay :smiley-confused2:

We still have 5 months to go lol. Enough time to ask Axl out :rofl-lol:. We can meet somewhere in the middle of Europe....let's say.....Prague :ph34r:.....

Yiss, Malibu, I know a place there :ph34r: but we would be allowed in only as cleaning ladies and servants :rofl-lol:  

 

btw. @nonok any plans of going to one of the European shows?

As of lately, it seems like it but let me rephrase: it's been very slow news days.

Indeed it would. Where are the CS people around here? (hides diploma) :ph34r:

Not at this point, unfortunately. Because, well, fuck Eastern Europe, right. :lol: I'd love to be able to go, but I'm saving up for other gigs as well and frankly, traveling across half the continent for the Hybrid lineup isn't worth it, however good the show is. I guess I'll wait for the AFD lineup to see them. In their rocking chairs. Dressed up as Mouseketeers with Axl being Mickey.

Yeah but I remember we all rejected such things, lol...... The anime was more accepted among others because if it was going to be fake, at least let it be art or something that you put some effort on making :max:

Haha, that's the reason why I've stayed away too. But sometimes you feel like "taking a walk" in that cool park that smelled of roses and brought you back to life, only to find out it is a vacant lot now :facepalm:

Lumikki is very busy with a new job (sorry to divulge personal information but I feel obliged :ph34r:) and it doesn't look like she's gonna get a lot of free time on her hands anymore.

This is how our life is now, so .... bummer ..... :shrugs: being an adult sucks major ass :unsure: (bigger than Axl's)

So, can someone come up with an interesting subject to start a conversation instead of going on with this argument? Especially one of the "originals" who know what things haven't been discussed that much.

Let's make this thread great again, right? ;)

I'm on it - does anyone have pictures of Izzy with a beard? It's uh, it's for purely scientific purposes. :ph34r:

I understand it can get frustrating....believe me I do, but at the same time I realize it's just the nature of the beast. We can only talk about certain GNR topics so much before it gets stale. There are only so many pics to be seen. We also have to remember that some of us here are pretty young (not me of course :P) and are just starting to discover some of the things we already know. Honestly, you are personally one of the reasons I keep coming here. You bring up a topic, listen to all opinions and debate in a healthy way. With that being said, I hope everyone reaches some level of comfort.

Will a little scruff work for your science project? I don't think he has ever had a full beard, sadly. :(

Out of likes. They'll have to do. :P Why can't there be more like the 4 above? Izzy's pretty much the only guy in GNR who can rock a beard imo (I hate Axl's Jesus phase and Slash just looks old with a beard now). Shame Izzy never grew his out (or he did but he hid himself in his avocado farm).

Izzy has some weird thing against facial hair. :shrugs:I believe it was Duff who said that the GNR newspaper ad he answered even stated "no beards" as one of the requirements. It's a damn shame though because he looked good with the little he had.  Except for this weird soul patch he was rockin' in these pics... No bueno. :smiley-confused2:
