2012 Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Just curious, what's determining the order in which you put these archives up?

To be honest, it's based on the amount of work associated with each year. I started with 2006 as a result of a member wondering in the D&N section what the forum was like during that year. Every thread that was created by March 2011 or earlier (2002 - 2011) has been archived by the system, which means I have to go into each and every thread individually and unarchive it so that I can move, lock, and organize it. 2006 took around 40 hours to complete this process.

I chose 2002 next as there were far fewer threads for that particular year.

2012 was easy as none of the threads had been archived, meaning I could just move them all at once into their own section. Spent about an hour sorting through and pinning the most important threads (btw, if you find any that I might have missed and deserved to be pinned, please let me know).

2011 will likely be next as I only have to unarchive threads that were started January through March. Should be up in a couple of days. After that, it's going to be awhile before I restore other years. My goal is to have all of this done by the end of the year.

And just in case anyone is wondering, threads will remain in the D&N section for two years and then be moved to Yesterdays. So, for example, at the end of 2015, I will move all 2013 GNR D&N threads to Yesterdays. We'll then change the policy on bumping threads so that any and all threads in the D&N section are permitted to be bumped (within reason) without breaking the rules.

Highlights for me were the Atlantic City show, which was great, meeting Axl after the Glasgow gig, getting Izzy + 14 Years at the 2 London shows (though overall those shows were disappointing compared to the epic London 2010 gigs), and meeting Bumble by accident before the show at EXIT in Serbia. Went to 5 shows that year, AC was by far the best, almost 2010 level, others were mostly disappointing.


Oh yeah, forgot to mention briefly meeting Black Sabbath and standing behind him at AC not knowing it was him the whole time :P

2012 was one of the best years of my life, and was a good "GNR year" for me

I was in the middle of college, I caught a dream show on the UCAP tour, my ex and I were in the prime of our relationship, I attended the HOF and Duff's show in Cleveland that weekend, met Ron, DJ, and Slash, Apocalyptic Love came out and I saw Slash, Halo 4, Star Wars announcement, lots of awesome concerts....

Fuck, that's all gone now

I was at this show:

and didn't like it very much at all. Earlier in the year, I saw the UCaP Tour here in Detroit which was a FAR better show. It was still cool to see GN'R in Vegas though.

The entire UCAP tour was incredible. You can tell Axl just got a buzz out of it, he was on fire. It's a shame it didn't extend to this side of the world :(

Yeah, I was lucky enough to attend the Atlantic City UCAP show and it was incredible, especially after seeing all the poor '11 performances online. But then I saw 4 more shows in Europe from May-July and they were all 2011-level :/
