GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

Recommended Posts

And this one too.

Some people talking about the indexing project in Thread Nr. 1 have made me think we'll probably never have an index, but we can collect links to some of the highlights of the old thread or something.

EDIT: Damn it @Andy14 you messed up my evil plan. Or you'll have to sacrifice your post for the index project some day:devilshades:

I wanted to write the first comment but my post took ages to save :max:

So it's you who messed up my plan :bitchfight:. Lol. 

Yiss, if we're ever able to do the indexing, I'll sacrifice my first  :ph34r: post

 

Anyway, since I don't want Duff with beard to be locked forever in the old thread, here you are:

Well... let's capitalize this first page so we can modify it and use it for upcoming announcements, index, images and useful links :)

When I realised the Reply buttons were missing from the old thread my first thought was "Oh my God they've banned me!!" So I'm feeling relieved right now...

God I'm relieved, I freaked out when I saw the thread locked. I thought we would be shut down for good :nervous: So YEY!! Anyway, this is still Women's Thread, we need gifs. Valentine's day gifs :ph34r:

Duff with that facial hair looks like a young Chris Cornell, and you actually realise he really is much darker than you think, he dyes his hair right? Do we have any pictures of duff with a more natural hair colour?

Sorry about that. :heart: I realise it's very annoying. 

Apologies to anyone unhappy with the decision but I really feel a fresh thread was needed at this point. We have done similar with other very lengthy threads in the past.

It's no problem. I think a new thread is a good idea and more or less agree with your rules.

 

Also like the suggestions from the old thread and I'd add:

- No being mean about other people's favored ships/pairings either lol. This has caused drama before as well.

- Regarding the thread search function: I didn't figure this out myself until some time ago so I figured I'd explain in case anyone else is as dumb as me: If you click into the search bar, a drop down menu to the left of it appears. Select "This topic" and search for the key word you're interested in.

Suggestions on how to deal with this:

 

- Didn't we use to have a "no off-topic" rule? Can we please stick to that a bit more closely again?

- Make sure your posts contains more than just "I agree", "Out of likes" etc. These kinds of posts just spam the thread and clutter it up.

- If you want to reply to more than one person, do it in one post instead of making multiple posts (> multi-quote function).

- Using the thread search function. You can search this thread specifically for certain key words and it will usually lead you to see if something has been discussed before.

- I can't think of a solution about the pictures issue. Unfortunately we're not all on the same level of "GNR knowledge" (man, that sounds douchey), some people just don't know which topics have been discussed before and which pictures have been posted a million times. You can search the thread for certain topics, but with pictures... I guess a good rule of thumb is that if a picture is old and can be found all over the Internet, Instagram etc. it has probably been posted a million times before.

- If you can or have time, read some older parts of the thread and you'll get a better idea of what has been discussed and posted before a lot and what hasn't.

- Maybe it might also be a good idea to make a new thread specifically for chit chat that isn't strictly GNR-related? If there is a need for that, people could just take all their personal discussions and random thoughts there.

 

 

So anyway... a lot of what I was going to say is obsolete now, but yeah, I agree about the -now old- thread having become a a bit of a mess and hard to follow. A fresh start really might be a good idea :) And now that hopefully everyone is a bit more aware of our unwritten rules (some of which are actually written down now lol), maybe we can all try to adhere to them a bit more from now on to keep with the "original spirit" (as someone called it) of the thread, which really wasn't intended as a random chat thread, but as a place to focus on GNR-related discussion and to share your contributions.

(But if someone wants to make a Random Chat thread just for women in Anything Goes or something, I'd totally support it. I understand the need to have a space for girl talk, even when it's not GNR-related :P)

Also wanted to comment on this:

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? ;)

There've been plenty of times in the past where the thread moved slow or even not at all for a couple of days. Discussions in the thread always just evolved naturally, if someone had something GNR related they wanted to discuss or share, or influenced by real life events. And I think that's fine. I'd rather the thread moves a bit slow at times than have pages and pages of insubstantial stuff every day. Quality over quantity, basically. So I don't feel we should force discussions, but anyone's welcome to make suggestions and things either take off from there or they don't.

Occasionally coming back here to see pictures that have been posted 100 times before with captions "found these new pics" is kind of...weird, I guess? As always, only @Lumikki delivers, sorry girls. :lol: She, as @killuridols put it, brought the light back to this thread (or something in that regard) - this place is really parallel to Guns' 87-93 era. There really should be a masterpost or navigation for the thread and all its topics, media etc. At this point I doubt anyone has the time or patience to bother, though. :shrugs:

Thanks :heart: I do try to share mostly new or high quality pics. I recommend Tumblr or magazine articles for finding newer stuff, if anyone wants to know. The people on Instagram usually just repost stuff from Tumblr in crappy quality and with half of the picture cut away.

Wow, so many killer pics there, @Lumikki! It's weird to see the Slaxl ones where Slash is on the floor as they're reversed, can't even imagine lefty Slash.

Thank you as well. I have to admit I didn't even notice they were reversed, but yeah, you're right :lol:

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:

Not mad, mostly flattered :lol::heart: I have actually been around a bit more again recently, but yeah, what @killuridols said:

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)

 

And to end this post on a more gossipy note:

Those are good examples. The ones in the UK were society girls, Tara Palmer Tomkinson (rip) Tamara Beckwith, Lady Victoria Harvey, Sophie Anderton they were the type of 90s socialites that were always referred to as "it girls" they were everywhere, normally out of their skulls. 

You're meant to want to be them, but really, who would want to? 

Sophie Anderson admits to sleeping with men for money to pay for drugs :vomit: 

Wouldnt want to be that. 

Iirc, Axl even fucked that Sophie Anderton woman.

Or at least used her as one of his escorts or something :facepalm:

This one with Izzy he just has highlights

And this one, I believe it's his natural hair colour. Grace was still a baby, so it must be circa 1998

@Lumikki

She has denied it in the past, saying that it was the best rumour she had ever heard about herself, that she shagged Axl. 

I also remeber her saying "well he is Axl Rose" when she was asked about him. 

What definitely happened is they both met in a club and disappeared together. So it's more than likely he did shag her. 

:vomit:

He mostly had it darker in the Neurotic Outsiders days, mid to late 90's but I think he also had it darker than usual in the Believe In Me days. Adding to @dgnr's pics:

It's funny how both Duff and Susan have a similar hair color but they both dye it blonde pretty much all the time.

Yes, you're right, it wouldn't be a good thing to force the conversation if there's nothing to talk about. I just wanted to end the argument and try to move to something more "productive" but it wasn't the way.

 I hadn't noticed either at first but then suddenly something felt very wrong :lol:

Being around the same age as they are and having naturally light brown hair, when you start getting gray hairs, it is easier to go blonde because gray roots blend in better with the blonde and it doesn't look like dark roots showing up. It also makes you look younger. Not saying that this is exactly why they both go blonde, but it very well may be why. Just a theory based on experience. I like them blonde. :shrugs:

Cool, I had no idea about that. Not sure if that's Duff's case as he was already blonde in GNR but it could explain why he went back to blonde around the VR years after having his natural color for some time. I like them blonde too, especially Susan :P

So today, I thought about our Boys and GnR and what would could have been. Metallica presale tickets went on sale today, and all of a sudden my office was filled with all kinds of people (young/old, men/women, liberal/conservatives) trying to get tickets online..I was floored at the diversity and chaos for Metallica (I am a fan, BTW)...But then I thought of when GnR went on sale last year, and I was the only one talking about it, trying to frantically get tickets, and I was Ecstatic (co workers didn't quite get me)...What could have been if we had more original GnR music...Wish we had more music! I LOVE my Guns and they are my band, but was surprised by the Metallica frenzy..just makes you go,,,hmmmm
