before i start this, you probably are thinking "paint gtfo! you have votes to count"
well i'm done with that. and yeah ... expect the awards thread to release soon.
anyway, i just thought i'd share my thoughts that occurred to me while i was counting
is it just me, or did the metal forum call each other and plan this whole voting thing out? they all voted for each other. it's not a problem, but it seems that this would be the first time this ever happened. i mean, the UG chat did this all the time, so it's no surprise to me. which brings me to my next topic:
divided we fall ug chat seems like the users are in their own cahoots. yes, i've only been a member for like 2 years or so ... but when i began going in there, the people seemed to know everyone and the conversations were a lot more interesting and more fun just because everyone liked each other. a couple years ago, the entire chat got itself to vote SpacedOut (female) both most attractive male and female. maybe it's my inactivity in chat, but i've noticed too many one-on-one conversations. plus, not all the chatwhores even voted in this year's thread, which is a huge disappointment, in my opinion. and because of that (yes i'll give out spoilers) magero, someone who i've never seen in #ultimate-guitar, wins chatwhore of the year. i have no problem with him, in fact he seems like a pretty alright person, but a chatwhore is one who visits #ultimate-guitar frequently.
who the fuck are these users ever since i became a CC, i've lost track of ALL users. throughout counting, i was like "who the hell are these users" some i've just discovered, because they post in the forbidden forums (metal forum, blues & jazz, musician talk, etc.) and i never saw the people whom i know the most (some people from chat and a lot of the people from alternative/indie).
hopefully, if i'm still around next year, things would turn out a lot better.
