I know that through this whole Village Sessions saga, Discord was used as a central hub for sharing the links and making sure everyone was able to enjoy the music that was being shared, maybe we can have one made specifically for having a safe haven to share these things?  

Just an idea, I was thinking that way we can have the mods and admins having a process where they can know exactly who has access to it and a way to vet, and this forum would be free of "danger via douchebags" and still an open and welcoming forum for everyone of any post count or join date

 

Just spitballing ideas here of course!

 As much as you would think GNR fans are conditioned to deal with disappointment and frustration, this latest development is a gut punch that there's no preparation for.  

Cheers!

 

Thanks for all you and the team does to allow this forum to function. I am sure I don’t have an appreciation for the time commitment! 🙏👍

What is the “latest development”?  I’ve been trying to follow this thread and others but must have missed something. Did something happen beyond YouTube takedowns?

It is a sad day, week, month, year for all of us trying to find a way to be a GnR fan these days due to all these restraints and bad individuals who try to shut all down concerning GnR :(

I read all ,,solutions", locked areas, membership, trustworthy fans, douchebags etc... It is hard... and it is sad... as I feel these mofos are winning... why?

becuase this is forum for ALL, including even bad motherfuckers and with this ,,solutions" they are dividing us into small respectful clubs of special members who can have access or be denied... 

I dont have lots of posts, I am here from 2009 officially but I am sure I was here from cca 2005/2006... 

and I still visit this forum EVERY DAY to see what is happening, any new news etc...

 

so do not let them to conquer us and separate ...

like a wise man once said 

"all we need is just a little patience"

it will be alright....

 

cheers

You're pretty close with the Beautiful example. 

Here's how it works to the best of my understanding:

Only licensed videos can be posted. So if a festival, news organization or official channel has a YouTube page with licensed content, it can be posted here. If it's not licensed, we can't have it posted. So in your example, if someone had posted that clip of Beautiful and its licensed, then it can be posted here. 

Unfortunately the same does go for any content whether it's GNR or not. The whole thing is insane and sad. 

Just clarifying. So other sections on this forum non gnr related like the "My world, what are you listening to" thread we can no longer post youtube videos of other artists as well?

Thats a killer.

Might be better finding a new server provider. On that note another gnr forum using invision as a provider still has no restrictions on links.....gunsnfnroses

Seems like we getting the rough end of the stick now from invision

Discord is not immune to takedowns either. These 'fans' of TB get everywhere

That's because the 2 TB stooges doing the reporting have a massive vendetta against THIS site, not the other sites.

This is not good for people like me, I read this forum since 4 years but never logged in, now I log in but I don't feel to write in, I am unreliable...

How did those individuals became so powerful in terms of pulling down material from EVERYWHERE? Youtube, Discord, even your hosting provider... They must have some kind of access that proves that they're the 'legitimate owners' of the material

I think that a good solution would be to ban all of the suspicious accounts, ban their IPS and make the sign-up process by admin-approval only. Also, hide some sections of the forum to new users until we have enough evidence that they're not part of this.

They are like the bed bugs of the GNR fandom, just when you think you are finally rid of them they keep returning to annoy the shit out of everyone lol

Maybe just start off by requiring all new accounts to reach a certain number of posts to access some areas of the forum. Existing long term members would be grandfathered in. Would at very least stop banned members from immediately creating account after account to get back on the forum.

I see many posters suggesting that Downzy and Russ should make the forum private altogether or make discussion forum for only verified posters. In all honesty, I think that making hidden discussion sections will affect greatly most posters that want to discuss the band's current happenings as they won't be able due to hidden sections and MyGNR too...... 

It is unfair in my opinion to close the discussion threads to only the big posters... some of us don't post much because of many reasons (sometimes life gets in!) yet we aren't rats! A lot of people specially casuals like to lurk more than post. Forum views would go down a lot if it went private or if main discussion threads weren't available for most posters. People would start migrating to other forums, which sometimes aren't very nice places as this. It would suck for MyGNR to die... There are GNR forums for everybody, and MyGNR is the biggest forum around and that's one of the biggest plus of you guys. 

I find it 100% reasonable to make hidden download sections with a big post number requirement, considering the awful situation.

Not sure I agree with the 3000 post requirements.  I've been around since the days when this was a message board, but don't post as much as some.  Been here through the highs and frequent lows with this damn band. Their venom towards the hardcore fan base is worse than it has ever been.   But hey, Faith No More will be touring again...

yeah whats their fuckign problem really? 

im trying to imagine axl and fernando's mind this is exactly how they think: 

the classic era didn't really happen at least not how people think or how history portrays it, axl was popular by himself starting in the late 90s when he went in recluse and was brainwashed into thinking i was his new baby brother or son, the casual fans that heard GNR songs from before were all produced by axl therefore he is gnr, the CD era although a stressful occasion for axl is the greatest piece of music ever written and some people just don't understand it, the NITL happened because everyone wanted to see axl again come out of his cave because the NU era didn't really happen as planned b/c axl's old employees found some loophole to keep them in as partners and due to this fact axl was sort of forced to reunite - the success of NITL was mostly to their benefit b/c we only scratched the surface and I'm really the reason why GNR is popular again due to the new shiny cool designs that I"m in charge of, die hard fans that exist mostly only originate from mygnrforum and these parasites are trying to rewrite history to position the band not as some solo genius work by axl, by posting classic era videos that prove it to be a solid band effort and or NITL videos that have been somehow altered to portray axl's voice in a dubious manner that is aimed at reducing potential future ticket sales.... i therefore employed my crew of trolls promising them some VIP bull shit to implore upon these problematic posters that they are shit, in the shit and to delete everything to hit him where it hurts cause fuck them - they are not fans - fuck em forever, i want fans that can't name a song other than sweet child and november rain thats fine for me, no criticism cause this is my little 1984 --------- i dont want casuals i want $ and fame but mostly fame! please!!! im in charge!! fuck slash in the ear too...i know he wanna say something about this shit but if he does i'll hire a lookalike 

 

BTW i had lunch with a couple casual fans today and gnr came up as we saw some chick wearing a gnr shirt, we wanted to ask her if she knew one song off use your illusion 2 which she did not - then the topic quickly changed to axl and the ridiculous overweight unflattering photo of his and his perv stache (the one he tried to get google to delete) and the side by side photo of him in appetite days - i was quiet most of the time and let them talk, so this is what casuals think of him FYI

Not the best idea. This would get people flooding just to get access, also, people who would already have access could start selling/sharing the links anyways.

People are focusing way too much on the 3000 posts thing. If your account is over a decade old it seems obvious to include you. Maybe not at first but honestly there's nothing happening with the band, so now seems like a good time to start with the hidden sections... it's not like there will be too much variety in the topics :lol:

As long as I can watch the occasional live-stream in March, it's all good. I don't care if they start the hidden sections with a 10,000 post minimum as long as they can sift out the 'bad apples' over time. It will be tedious and aggravating for the mods, but it will be appreciated.

And, a "fuck you" to Joel and Walker. :hahafyou:

Maybe have that hidden section a club members only area too which will encourage people to pay the club members fee and help pay for the upkeep for this board? Just a idea.

I don't think that should have anything to do with it, the people taking videos down would definitely pay $10 or whatever to gain access if it were just a 'club member' thing. The fact that we've been around for years is more important than us being club members.
