  1. If it's cheap and not inconvenient then yes. Pre pandemic I'd have probably said no but we've been able to do very little for near on 2 years now so go and celebrate the return of big events and still being alive. :heart:

    By most accounts the band are sounding decent and having fun with the shows which is a bonus.

    AND you might be one of the first to hear HS live*



    *this is not a promise, don't hold me to it. :lol:

  2. My daughter has Covid currently. She tested positive a week ago after going to a festival. She seems okay so far - feels a bit tired and has a cold. She did say it's weird that the symptoms go up and down, disappearing for a while then coming back. She lost her smell and taste which was the first symptom.

    I'm not overly worried, I keep checking in with her every couple of days to see how she feels because I know you can feel like you're recovering then suddenly get worse. Her boyfriend is in isolation with her but despite also going to the festival and being in the same house he's remained negative so far.

    They've both only had one jab but hoping they're young enough for that to be enough. They could have been double jabbed by now but like many 20 somethings didn't make it a priority. I think my persistent nagging is the reason they have at least one. :lol:

  3. I let one of my son's be photographed for a indie jewellery advert as a baby (he was ridiculously cute even accounting for my bias).

    He got £50 and a framed photo that sits proudly in the hallway. He is wearing a nappy but maybe I'm going to be in trouble in a few years for an embarrassing photo. :lol:

    It's not quite in the league of Nevermind and I doubt our artist made much money.

    I can see why this man might feel awkward about it but if he didn't tell people it was him hardly anyone would know.

    So I'm contracted to a 3 month notice period at my current job but since I'm leaving I'm not starting any new projects and don't have a lot going on to keep me occupied. The guy I share an office with is in holiday for two weeks to I've spent the last 3 days watching YouTube and playing Nintendo. :lol: 


    Congrats on the new job.

    Can't we have the litho drama in a separate thread?

    Honestly this was a very successful thread about the tour lithos, specifically the artwork and it had been going for more than five years before it got derailed. Wouldn't mind if it got back on topic...

    I appreciate your point and sort of agree but the drama has been about lithos and Fernando chose to make his comments in this thread so there is relevance. Hopefully there's not much else to say now so the convo will likely move on naturally.

    To help things along if anyone wants to discuss the non-litho comments made by Fernando can they take it to the D&N thread below.

    I was under the complete impression he said yes to a hard school single or video. Guess I misunderstood what was being said.

    There could be. Just not sure if it was completely clear as there was a lot of joking around and cross posts.

    He did say he would be back I think so maybe he'll confirm exactly what was meant.

    What can we take away from his answers?

    Hard skool single coming (vinyl release aswell)

    Hard skool video coming 

    Hard skool advertisement coming



    Not a fan of my signature

    He wants to do forum based Shirts or something (https://www.mygnrforum.com/topic/215649-tour-lithographs-and-show-specific-artwork/?do=findComment&comment=4893731) 


    Did I miss anything?

    I think this is a bit generous. Only confirmed thing was an eventual vinyl release of Absurd and your signature :lol:.

    I'd encourage everyone to read the Litho thread to make their own interpretations before getting too excited.

    Ah makes sense! Thanks for that!
    15 years in am only Demi-God, not sure I will make it to Frontman unless they release a couple of new albums!

    There's also Legend for 10 k plus. 

    Sorry I didn't reply earlier. I won't be around on the forum much this next week so for anyone else that has queries it's best to direct them at another staff member if you need a quick reply.

    These rockets on the avatar are Abit distracting. Any way to get rid of them?

    I don't think so sorry. They're part of the latest software upgrade. I'm not a fan of them either.

    Sorry for bother, but some rare happen today. I browser in the forum and isn't appear in the list my name, also disappear number of reactions to me. Plus in any browser thread said it "No registred users viewing this page" Please help. Thanks. 😐

    We've updated the forum software today. Hopefully it's a temporary thing @downzy @highvoltage

    In the meantime maybe try logging out of the forum and your browser then going back in again. Just in case that makes a difference.

    Can you tell me about what time GNR come on the stage?

    Last time it was around ten and played for 3 hours. I would like to know so I can see what time I'll be getting home that night. lol


    As far as I can tell they've been starting early, about 8ish and doing a slightly shorter set. Someone who attended can probably be more exact. @RussTCB

    Hey, not sure if this is the right thread, but: I finally got some money, so I’d like to repay whomever made me a club member, as I’ve promised (thanks again – I’ve had a pm convo about this). However, there’s not that “add to cart” option for me any longer, as I already am a member now. I’m not talking about making someone else a member, I just wanna send you a little acknowledgment – but don’t know how. I’m not too savvy about online payments, but I think I’ll handle it as long as it doesn’t require some special registrations etc. 
    So any help appreciated. :)

    Thanks. Please don't feel you have to right at this moment, people have already been very generous in the last couple of weeks.

    If you do want to the easiest way to donate is via Paypal using this address: membership.mygnrforum@gmail.com

    yeah, this one ain't it. It's something about the perspective on Axl looking up that just looks, weird. Ah well, Buhler has to miss every once in a while, right?! :P

    I don't know if it's my eyes but I couldn't work out what I was looking at in the design. I realised straight off it was related to the movie but I needed someone else to point out it was the woodchipper. I thought it was the scene on the ice but couldn't figure out the detail.

    Random question but do you know if there's a audio recording of Wellington NZ Feb 2 2017? I was at the show and for sentimental reasons I'd love a copy.

    Sorry I don't off the top of my head. Have you looked in the show thread? If there's nothing there you might find other members who attended and maybe drop them a PM just in case.

    So only certain people can partake in the conversation while the show is on. You only want to hear certain people’s opinions during the show. That’s obvious. 

    I dunno, no disrespect, but with having  had a post or two deleted, and seen the same for others, the no links policy in the forum, it’s all a little fascist when I look at some other music forums and definitely other GnR forums.

    Someone is being kept happy somewhere........

    Initially, your statement that the website received a high volume of users during shows made sense to close the site down. But then the other forums are left online during the gigs. 
    So An assholes question, but what’s to stop someone creating a thread about the gig in the “my world” section or any of the other forums left online. 


    The no links policy isn't of our choosing. We'd rather not do it but after several complaints made to our hosting company we had no choice. If we ignored it we'd lose our hosting. There's no conspiracy from our side and we aren't doing it to keep anybody happy. It certainly doesn't make us happy which is why I apologise when I remove the videos members post.

    Keeping threads to club members whilst a show is live serves a few purposes, it reduces the volume of traffic hitting the forum in one go, gives something back to those who helped out with costs and makes the live thread a little easier to moderate.

    We do open the section up again right after the show finishes so everybody does have the opportunity to discuss from that point onwards.

    Threads opened in other sections would just be closed. 

    I really think you're reading way too much into this. If someone is dead against becoming a club member for whatever reason, as you point out, there are other forums, there's also a reddit sub, numerous discords and Facebook groups where anyone can go chat during a live show.
