Hi there and welcome here. We have a recruitment program going, if you can recruit new members you get extra points (=plectra).

Such a shame that most new users don't stick around to become regulars..

Yes. But sooner or later it will happen. Hopefully before I publish my first Axl Rose interview...

iftheworld here. Some of you might know me from mygnr. If you do, you probably know that I'm not the most liked guy there due to my views towards Axl & Guns (all positive). I can't believe I've passed this place by. I might get comfy for awhile.

Welcome!!

The place should be quite self-explanatory, but if there's any function or feature you are not sure about, just ask me.

We have a rank system here, as you post more you advance in ranks. Each rank has its own badge shown below your avatar. The ranks are taken from different jobs/titles of people working in or with a rock and roll band on tour. So you will advance through lowly ranks like groupies and tour bus drivers, all the way to manager and frontman.

We also have a secondary rank system called the "plectra system". Each time you post, each time someone likes your post, each time you recruit a new member, etc, you are awarded plectra. So basically, the more plectra you have, the more valuable you are as a member. It is similar to post counts, but a little bit more advanced and more representative of your value to the forum. Plectra can be used as a currency to buy stuff at the forum (own blog, unique additional badges, access to VIP area, etc).

But enough said! Hope you'll like it here Smile

Hi there, I'm Bruno. People may know me from HTGTH or MyGNR. I'm from Brazil and I'm not related to the Lebeis family. Do I get extra points for that? Very Happy

No, actually, you'd get lots of points if you were a Lebeis because I am still trying to get hold of Beta or Fernando to set up an interview with Axl....

Regardless of your family name: WELCOME!

Hello everybody. I'm from MyGNR.

I love the database that's already been collected here, and hopefully we can get the forums going to the level that the site deserves.

Thanks for all of the work that went in to it.

Hello new people. I have never visited MyGNR so I don't know what it's been like there.
I love reading fan reviews of shows so if you see any on this tour that just started in Moscow please plug them into the live show database and I, for one, will enjoy the read (good spelling not necessary).

Thank you and welcome!

Speaking of getting the forums going, we do have a recruitment campaign going here. For each new member you recruit you get 100 plectra. It's a quick way of rising in our very own cursus honorum.

Welcome! I hope you will enjoy the site and what it has to offer. We also have a recruitment campaign going that no one has taken advantage yet, you could be the first. Let me know of you have any questions or problems.

Hey, I'm "Axl Rose aka God" from myGNR and I decided to sign up here. I love the layout and design of the forum, it looks awesome. I love the interactivity as well, the poll on the right side is an awesome idea.

Thank you and welcome! Smile.

I think we are well covered in features and content, we only need more members to get more discussions, I guess. So exploit the recruitment campaign we have going and get your friends to sign up U rock

Hello

Post by J.Hanover on Mon Oct 15, 2012 7:02 pm

I've been a fan of GN'R now for 25+ years. They have been my favorite band since I was 14 years old and have seen it all with them. My first concert was Monsters of Rock at the LA Coliseum. One of the best shows, sad to say that was my last until now, I'll be in Vegas in November. I love this band from the OG line-up to the current line-up. I love all the music from the Ep Live like a suicide to Chinese Democracy and everything in between. The reason I didn't see them after Monsters was I couldn't get off the time to see the Use your Illusion tour and I didn't think it would be 10+ years until there next tour and even those first one's were sketchy. But now the Current line-up rocks and I'm happy to see them kickin' ass even though it's not with the OG's. That's a whole different topic for later. Happy I found this site!

Very cool! I'd love for you to write review of the shows of the shows you've been to, or just a few words like "I was there!", in the relevant gig threads. What Vegas dates are you attending?

I'll be attending the Friday Nov.9 show. Can't wait till then. I can definitely write a review about the Vegas show, no problem. The Monsters of Rock show was a long time a go and I must say I was F'd up and having fun. It was great but i can't give a song by song detail. It was also 20 plus years a go. But for the Vegas show I'll have pic's and write a good review. Hoping to use some contacts to get back stage but that's always a gamble with GN'R. I know Axl is a no-no except for a quick moment but most of the others are pretty cool. Only time will tell.

Thanks, a review would be really cool sfhaetdj

The Monsters of Rock was the disastrous Donnington show back in '88, right?
