thanks for understanding bro  :) together with my co-mods we decided to lock it nalang before it goes to AGT its better that way para rin lang fair sa lahat, i decided to keep it there (for the meantime) for future references, may mga good reads din kasi dun  :) so to be clear ako po personally nag lock nung thread and its our decision para maging fair lang sa lahat at mawala rin yang inggitan sa amin sa "post count" hehe patas patas lang dapat.

yep sa sobrang tagal nasa 194 pages palang yun since 2006 and yung GC blog was just started July 2012 and as of this posting nasa 124 pages na and counting hehe active yung thread  :) and sa tingin ko sa BP Blog patterned din yung GC Blog correct me if im wrong.

Correct sir. Camaraderie lang din naman ang layunin namin like sa BP. It's a blog with discussions that will touch on guitar related things. Kulitan would be part of it. So sorry nadamay BPMB. Up to know it's still vague why all of this happened. We are all cool still.  :cool:

Sharing one of our conversations sa mod board:


update: we already locked our own thread as well para lang walang isyu isyu sa mga forumers na kesyo yung samin bat nandun pa...kung okey lang sana id prefer na wag na mamove sa AGT since may mga good read pa rin naman dun sa thread for references...ilock ko nalang muna mga boss and keep it sa Bass Place  :) sayang kasi yung thread kung ioopen at mamomove sa AGT baka ma"baboy" lang eh hehehe you know agt peeps  :-D kung imomove might as well delete it nalang kesa masira yung thread salamat ulit mga boss :)

Good point you have there kapatid! if ever though, would granting you guys access to AGT help out para kung sakaling may manggulo sa thread, pwede niyo malinis or ma-maintain? kasi locking it would only make things more miserable; don't want to go with the option of deleting them as well since it would start a massive riot IMHO! gusto ko sana meet tayo halfway with the members din kaya na-suggest ko na magsticky tayo ng link sa respective boards; gaya nga ng sabi nila some members don't hang out sa AGT, at least may access pa din sila sa mini blogs. In a way, organized tayo na lahat ng mga OT/semi-OT threads as deemed by mods are to be placed sa AGT tapos meron pa din direct link sticky sa respective boards nila. So looking at it, parang hindi din nawala sa mismong boards yung topic, naiba lang ng board na pinaglalagyan yung threads para wala ng gulo for both mods and members alike! fair enough na ba yun? I'm open for more decent suggestions though. :-P

*** I'm giving you guys the right to use this thread or selected posts (kung papayag si TS/post TS) for use sa FB and other discussion threads para may idea sila kung ano nangyayari re this matter. I want the mod team to be as transparent to everyone as much as possible ***

@riff

Why fix something that ain't broke? Yung blog thread ng bass place have been there since 2006, i don't think it is fair to the members to move it to agt. yeah change is good, but there's just things that we should leave as it is. If there's time to make an exception regarding a certain thread's relevancy to a certain subforum (GC, BP) i think the mini blogs are it.

I understand toybitz's point na medyo AGT na ang nangyayari sa majority ng conversations sa mini blogs kaya nung nagtanong siya if it's ok to move it or not, majority of the mods voted to have it moved. In a way, gusto lang namin i-keep yung purity ng topics sa GC na strictly guitar-related lang ang usapan without the fuss. I know na part na nang buhay musika ang kulitan, that's why we have AGT here in PM. If we are to move it though, I for one would leave a sticky link still para maging aware yung members na hindi mawawala yung mini blogs. Nilipat lang siya kung san siya maaaring mailagay maliban sa GC or BP boards. Yun lang naman po ang pinag-ugatan ng paglipat ng mini blogs. Pasensya na sa mga na-offend sa paglipat. Sana naging maliwanag sa inyong lahat yung point namin kung bakit namin nilipat ito.

well, topic purity is good, but honestly unattainable. so pag may gumawa ng "happy birthday (insert forumer name)" na thread, dapat i move yun sa AGT since technically off topic sya? or yung mga "Ask me" threads since although it's intended for guitar related inquiries, the question are so diverse and majority are non guitar-related. what we we're asking was a singular exception, that i think most members of the said sub forum would generally agree.

hey mod riff, i understand that being a mod is not an easy job,
and i thank you for that.but i believe di nyo rin nakikita lahat minsan ang punto ng isang PM'er
or ng newbies, or ng isang thread mismo.

i want to speak for myself, though i belong to BP and we have the same sentiments regarding the miniblog thing.

1. even the GC peeps admire the peace we got there in BPMB (well kaya siguro nagkaroon din sila
ng miniblog, because they want the same athmosphere)

2. the BP mods're very vigilant and hard working, kaya controlled ang situation, IMHO kung nagkaproblema mga MODS sa GC, desisyunan na lang nila yun dun sa bakuran nile, whether ilipat or hindi.

3. im with you mods if you want to purge philmusic, kaya nga bawat forum may MOD diba? and i believe na wala namang nakikitang problema mga mod ng BP regarding the miniblog thread (howcome yung ibang mod may nakikitang problema?
4.sa dalang ng mga bumibisita sa BP nabawasan ang reasons ng iba to go there, since di naman talaga lahat e nagpupunta ng AGT.

5.2006 pa yung miniblog ng BP, at 2012 na nung questionin? MOD pa yung gumawa nung thread.

6.di ko talaga maintindihan bakit nadamay ang katahimikan ng BPMB, e in the first place
wala nga kami problema dun sa BP kasi nga magagaling mga mods na niluklok nyo dun (im not saying otherwise to other mods)

7.sana nag stick nalang sa problema at di na nangabilang bahay. at tulungan yung mod na nahihirapan sa forum (well kung nahihirapan naman talaga e)

well yan lang muna hehehe, dami pa gusto sabihin e



OT question
pwede ba i manipulate ng MOD ang post count ng isang member? without deleting the posts?
because i want mine back to zero. i dont care much 'bout post counts.

not to mention BORING.  :x

Vinz locked the BP thread kasi he didnt want it to be moved here sa AGT. Is he not making sense too? IMO He makes perfect sense. BPblog is a community within in a community, maganda samahan nila doon. same with GCMB. I sure hope madami padin ang mag join sa "community" na mga taga Guitar Central, wag lang talaga mapasukan ng mga fire starters, that would be very very bad  :|

I feel really bad kasi nadamay pa ang BPMB sa GCMB.  Nag-post ako sa BPMB ng something like "Buti pa itong thread na ito hindi nalilipat sa AGT".  I posted that kasi gusto ko makita ng mga mods na oks lang naman na may mini blog sa sections ng Philmusic.  Unfortunately, kabaligtaran yung nangyari.  Instead na mabalik sa GC ang GCMB, na-lock pa tuloy ang BPMB.  I apologize to the BPMB people kung nadamay pa kayo.   :-(

Threads being locked or threads being moved, it's always a combined effort by the mods. Hindi lang yan "kasalanan" ng isang mod. Kinukunsulta muna ng isa sa lahat/karamihan ng mga kasama nya bago gawin iyon. Like the saying goes, "Two Heads Are Better Than One". ...yes. It may not be always. But, in most cases, two heads are really better than one.

But, as for me, let's just celebrate the life of The Thread Of All Threads. The very existence of it has always been an image of how gracious, how merciful & how just to us our 'gods' are. ...kita mo naman. Mag-aanim na taon na nga, eh!

>:D

If you're really insistent on how we moderate Guitar Central, I'll indulge you this one time. Here's how I make a judgment call:

1. Relevance to the forum – self-explanatory. I've already explained this one in a previous post. Irrelevant threads are transferred to their respective proper forums.

2. Continuity – "happy birthday ______", "______ EB Jam pictures" or "______'s new baby" posts are allowed in Guitar Central because (1) it normally runs for only a few days, then people stop posting altogether; and (2) those threads promote camaraderie between the members. The I'm Bored thread was also a candidate for moving, but the questions there are guitar and GAS day-related. And besides, that thread has already died a natural death.

3. Offensive content – threads that contain explicit offensive content that good relations between members are locked or deleted outright.

4. Redundancy – self-explanatory

5. Date of Posting – I don't tamper with old threads, especially the ones that have been around before I became markflo's co-mod in GC. Those threads are relics; they're from GC's wild west era and also serve as examples of the types of threads that must not be posted on the forum again. I still lock some threads instead of deleteng them to leave examples of unacceptable threads.


I believe that I have already clarified our position. Considering how even the thread starter looks at the Mini Blog (http://talk.philmusic.com/index.php?topic=271538.msg3708673#msg3708673) and how many pages it took (more than 200 pages in less than 4 months) before I decided to move it to AGT, can you still say that we are biased and unfair?

This is the last time that I'll be commenting on this issue. The Mini Blog forum seems to be back to normal (including the "Should we post Chuckie Garcia's naked photo on Facebook?" poll), so you guys can carry on with your conversations over there.

Walang samaan ng loob, guys. Just being fair and square. Please go easy on toybitz as well. He's really a good guy and he's just overzealous at times.

The GCMB thread was actually Lakan's idea.  He asked me to start the thread because there was this inside joke among our friends that I am Philmusic's OT King.  Of course, that's not true, but that's another story.

At first, that was the idea.  "AGT in GC".  But within a couple of weeks, it became more than that.  The GCMB thread turned into a place where guitar enthusiasts hangout and tell stories about gear, playing style, hot chicks, family, and life experiences.  We met lots of new friends because of that thread.  It became a part of our daily routine.

Regarding relevance to the forum:
I don't think that GCMB is completely irrelevant.  Yes, we talk about tons of stuff but we always go back to talking about our gear.  We were also able to set tone parties, jams and simple inumans in that thread, which I think is also relevant to the forum because these activities promote camaraderie among members.

When the mods allowed the thread to continue for more than a month, I assumed that it was okay for the thread to go on forever.  Until one day, the thread was moved. 

Sorry guys, I have to move this thread. Too many complaints about this already.

May we know what the complaints were? 

And one more thing, I saw that the Bass Place Mini Blog was locked already.  I'm sure that was harder for the BPMB people to accept because that thread has been there for like 6 years already.  I kinda felt like the BPMB thread got locked because of what happened to the GCMB thread.  If we did not say anything about the mods allowing BPMB in BP while GCMB was moved to AGT, would the mods lock that thread? 

Well, I guess that's it.  Yes, I kinda feel bad because GCMB was moved to AGT but you guys (mods) should do what you gotta do.  I'll get over it soon.

Thanks and have a great night, Ian.

Re: Maari ba na ibalik dito yung Guitar Central Mini Blog Thread?

At first, that was the idea.  "AGT in GC".  But within a couple of weeks, it became more than that.  The GCMB thread turned into a place where guitar enthusiasts hangout and tell stories about gear, playing style, hot chicks, family, and life experiences.  We met lots of new friends because of that thread.  It became a part of our daily routine.

Sadly, the hot chicks, family and life experiences far outweighed the guitar-related stuff. Your daily routine wasn't changed, actually. The thread is still up and running. It was just moved to another forum.

Regarding relevance to the forum:

That content is not exclusive to the GCMB thread. There have been so many jaminumans, gear shows and tone parties that have been well-documented and posted on Guitar Central. Joric even organized several OD/distortion blind test sessions in the past and it was posted on GC. Again, the irrelevant stuff far outweighed this one.

1. Non-guitar related stuff posted
2. Ginagawang chatroom ang thread
3. Puro pictures nyo lang ang lumalabas, with occasional hubad na hunks and "crush ng bayan"-level pics
4. May mga nagmumura, tulad mo: http://talk.philmusic.com/index.php?topic=271538.msg3766171#msg3766171
etc.

Actually ang dami kong pinalagpas na mga offense ninyo for the sake of camaraderie and good times that you guys have in there (yung mga nagrereklamo eh yung mga pinupulis din namin). And the only thing that we did was move it to AGT. Dein burado ang thread nyo, brod. Tuloy ang ligaya nyo, sa AGT forum lang nilagay. This issue has been blown way out of proportion, honestly. Wag na sana sabayan ng overreaction.

Ok na lahat sana, guys. Time to let this go. Kitakits soon.
