UG is not myspace sorry

Current mood: bitchy

Views: 5,325
Comments: 101
It started getting on my nerves (not that much really) yesterday but I was too busy trying to fix UGP bugs with my team to address this immediately. Anyway, it's been mentioned several times that UGP looks "too much like myspace", and even a "cheap myspace copy". I feel like I have to explain a couple things, I know that would make me and people who coded UGP (till & medick) feel way better.
 
So the original idea of what later became Ultimate Guitar Profiles has appeared two months before UG v5.0 launch (august, 2005). And it was totally not because of myspace, I hardly knew anything about myspace. I was using purevolume and dmusic and some other sites that I can't remember now. Having said this, I still respect all these sites and teams behind them.
 
Back then we were busy with tablatures, news, reviews, forums etc (everything but social networking) which I believe we are doing fairly good by now. Needless to mention all the infamous troubles with NMPA that have been taking a fair amount of my time. But what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. So we are not just still around, we are alive and kicking, eh?
 
Anyway, forget two paragraphs above now and answer a simple question -- what does it mean to be a copy of myspaceHaving blogs? Ok, there are better blog spaces -- livejournal and blogger. Mp3 uploads? You remember how big was mp3.com before they got into legal troubles? Pictures? ok, why not a copy of flickr or photobucket then? Friends? Cmon, having friends was a vBulletin feature since version 1.0 I think. And it was before myspace even existed. Oh, you mean having all that sh*t in one place? Why not bebo or hi5 copy then? :) I won't even mention that in my humble opinion there is nothing on the Net more disorganized, poorly coded and layouted than myspace... not to mention the worst design ever :puke: Anyway, call it myspace copy or call it cheap myspace copy that will only make it more challenging for us to become #1 guitar community and guitar website, and who knows some day you will call myspace a cheap copy of UG :haha:
 
 
Obviously I will write a better story about how was UGP coded, but you see what we have here and it's not the final version, it's rather just the basis that we will be using for the further UG improvements. I believe the current UGP features will be less than a half of UGP of the next year. I'll post the list of features that we plan to implement soon.
 
Enjoy your weekend!

You can't really compare UG profiles to myspace.

Its quite different from myspace. Its more bout your music than trying to be the coolest kid in town with the most friends on their page.

If this is anything like myspace, its only better!!

We've got musicians here! Not stupid emo/scene kids, attention whores and pedophiles!!

UGP ties personal profiling and guitar profiling. Which makes it so much better than Myspace. Also, you mention that there's more to come, and it's already an awesome set-up. Can't wait to see what more you have to incorporate with UGP. Thanks, and great job.

Aww, the blog title disappointed me. And all this time, I thought that UG in fact WAS Myspace.
Damn it to hell!

All I can say is, if this is just the BASE of the UG profiles and there are more updates to come, I think it's safe to say that UG is now the holiest of holy sites on the web. It and Wikipedia used to be neck-and-neck, but now UG has pulled miles ahead.

I bet the haters have never satisfied a woman in their lives and are so counterculture they consider the slightest similarity to a popular entity such as myspace as being a copy or whatever, I say poo to these fools, the UG profiles are far superior in all respects, better layout, better functions and better people.

It's evident the ammount of time and effort that's been put into UG Profiles, MySpace is extremely disorganised as you mentioned, I can't even keep a track of what the hell's going on half the time, and I won't even mention bulletins, whore codes and those annoying fucking ads (Forgive the obscure words)...

The only thing I'll give credit to MySpace for is the bands that are on it, but even then, it's a website dedicated to popularity, not music. You should try to get bands to create profiles on UG Profiles... I think that would be cool... Major Kudos on you and the rest of the team :)

Yeah, that's pretty much what I dislike about myspace, though I gotta admit UGP is much better organized and WAY cooler since people here just come for the music, the guitar/bass and to chill out and maybe make some net friends in the process, not to have all the greatest videos or the most viewed profile or the highest number of "friends"...... definitely opposite to what over half the people at myspace use their accounts for.

zwound wrote on Aug 23rd, 2007 9:07am

I don't think it's like myspace at all, except for the LAYOUT (a little bit). Zappp, i think you COULD experiment with some other layout options..other than that it pwns. You can post your gear and pics of your gear. you can post your songs and have them rated, and even skill rated. Only thing i think is that the society of the UG profiles should expand and settle a little bit...i mean it's still in it's beggining phases, and i think it hasn't reached full usage yet - but that will happen i think :).

The only things i could suggest is experimenting with a really original layout...that is the only thing i can suggest. I think the layout is the reason why it's called a myspace rip off (and it's not)...

All the best, greets and good luck!

zwound wrote on Aug 23rd, 2007 9:34am

to my above post, i'd like to add that it's really hard to come up with something original. it's that all of the myspace, hi5 and wahtever seem to have that standard layout. pics on the upper left, with additional personal info below, and then just blog and main body taking up the centre and most of the right side of the page...

also the UG MP3 player is alot like many other sites have. it's like an industry standard or something. i'm not saying it's unoriginal...i mean it looks original indeed, but it's always like that with online music players...a panel with play, pause, stop and whatever, and then a list of song links below...i know it's hard to change and be different, cause this seems to be the most ergonomic way, i'm just pointing out some similarities between most sites like myspace, hi5, and maybe even UG now...

Let's try being different, and yet the BEST. ofcourse, not to risk ergonomics..i think it would be cool if UG had a completely different desing than all the rest of the sites.

hey man, thanks for the criticism, despite of what someone would think, I appreicate this a lot. We will experiment with the layout at some point don't worry. What I've been trying to say in my blog is that (exactly!) you can't come with smth different when you do mp3 player. Plus if people got used to some functions/layout section there is no big need to break their habbits. But we will try to make it different but still usable :D

Oh, i have a suggestion though.

you know, i might be retarded, but i haven't found a way of getting to the index of profiles (where the search, and chrats are) except from manually typing profiles.ultimate-guitar.com...it would be nice if there was a link at the top of the page to 'profiles' or something. that would be quite nifty and neat :)

Absent Mind wrote on Aug 23rd, 2007 11:49pm

I dont see a need to be differnt to be honest. I mean the fact that this is only for guitarists pretty much sets it apart from any my space crap etc. I doubt non guitarists will come to register just to use its myspace features :P the lay out is fine, it works, trying to be differnt is what a lot of people say is why they're modern day emos, and look what happened there :P

As well as to the 'bog standard' features, like the MP3 player looking like all the others you've ever seen, well if it aint broke dont fix it, theres no need to come up with a new way of aranging a pause and skip button etc :P

I like it how it is, but I'm looking foward to the updates over the year(s) its gunna be great!

BTW are they're any plans to implement videos? (especially in the skills section, but also for the songs your write if you wanted to film your self performing them as well or w.e) That would be great, and I would be much more enthusiastic to use the skills function if people could see me to help out :D

Myspace is crap. UG is more tightly knit and it doesnt seem like there many "friend whores" who just try to get as many friends as possible. And Myspace doesn't have any useful things besides the social networking, while UG gives users access to tabs, lessons, and videos.

Acid_Paint wrote on Aug 25th, 2007 9:28am

This sort of thing happens all the bloody time, little 10 year old kids who think myspace is the shit come on to other completely different social networking sites with different histories and they always complain about how much of a 'myspace ripoff' that website is.

Remember folks, how society is degressing rapidly.

Well, I'm still kinda getting used to the whole UGP thing. I've only had mine for around a week, a little over, a little under, not sure. I have 7 or so friends I think and I haven't uploaded any songs or anything like that. On MySpace I guess there is more for me to do, there are more friends for me there, I have more photos, blah blah blah. But when I'm not busy enough, my work on my UGP will def out do my MySpace. So yeah.

zappp, this is nothing like MySpace. I love you for making UGP. When I'm not busy getting the shit out of the way that I have to do in the next few weeks, UGP will = my interwebz life.

zhille wrote on Aug 30th, 2007 3:45pm

Well, I am a web designer by profession, and I am very satisfied with the way UGProfiles look, the layout fits with the rest of the site, fonts are beautiful, and the colors too, I like the graphics, they're modern and have great coloring too...then, the structure on a member's profile is the most readable combination, it's clear and functional, and does not look like MySpace AT ALL! I have Myspace, and I really think it sucks :D

I have some suggestions if anyone cares.

1. Text fields and/or inputs should have a lighter, not #00000 background color :D It's very hard to see the cursor while typing, wouldn't you say?.

2. In the future it would be nice to have a choice of skin for the profile, like on www.netlog.com, they have great and beautifully designed skins, some even with guitars :D It would be a great thing to contact some of UG's webdesigner members to suggest a few skins, and then pick THE BEST ones.

3. Profile editing should be limited to very basic things, fonts and background/background images, for non coding members not to screw up the layout, like on MySpace. And the other reason are the ads, like those hidden in MS layouts and graphic tags.

This is all I wanted to say, and UG pwns MS!

zapppa wrote on Aug 30th, 2007 7:26pm

They're pretty different things basically.

I don't really know how you could improve anything, and profile layouts are really hard to be "different" because besides guitar i know some CSS/HTML. This is a great site. I was thinking of a new design for you guys, and what if you could have an option to create something where users could create a channel (like youtube in a way)but put the music videos and gig videos on there for bands. Just thought it might be a good idea, (but it would be better than youtube :D ) at sniper wolf90: zapp-100000000000000000000000000000000 myspace- .000001 XD

Myspace hurts my eyes. I was amazed at how good the profiles looked on UG when I joined the site. I thought to myself: "They start off looking this good?" You have to be a master of HTML and DIV and CSS or whatever just to get a myspace page looking half-way decent. Whoever said "cheap myspace copy" should go back to myspace and hang out with their emo/ scene friends and the pedophiles. Great job on the site!

"there is nothing on the Net more disorganized, poorly coded and layouted than myspace... not to mention the worst design ever"

YES! Organizing my band's MySpace is tedious and irritating. MySpace has so many bugs it hurts.

I've just realised after reading that, how good UGP actually are. They're so easy to use and look miles better than myspace. The whole way it works is really good and is so much more easy to navigate than myspace. I hadn't really thought of the similarities til now, but there isn't really any. UGP is wholey better and I thank you for making them!

I hate myspace. It's the most annoying thing I've ever used, and it's not just the layout and over-all boringness of it all, it's all the people on there. (most) people on here are pretty cool, and it's much easier and more fun to use then myspace will ever be.

I luv mah UG. :hug:

Myspace doesn't allow harassment from people like UG does thats why I'm set to
private . Wish you could be more like myspace Instead of Dread G Space I would visit more . Seems one side always the UG .

Your site is supposed to be an outlet for people like me and not a prison or where
anrche rules so myspace would be better .

I think you need to make the UG a more friend leer place to compete with Myspace
Youtube and face book .

Can a artist sell his material on UG as well as Myspace ? or at all without being banned for senseless behavoir by Moderators team members ? I think not .
You have much work to do . A year later this site is still in its infince much to learn
and work out here , so good luck . Slug

I agree with you. I don't think that somebody can tell if one is better than another, though, because UG and MySpace are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT sites, serving completely different purposes. MySpace is just a social net that, well, has a little more to do with music, while UG is a site JUST for music and especially for string musicians, either experts or neophytes. Apples and oranges here, people!
