Is it just me or do people on the meshuggah forum seem really negative?

    This may seem a tad bitchy and what not, but im not trying to draw comparisons and say sevenstring.org is better etc, neither am i slating the meshuggah forum. But in my experience when ive posted new music up or links people on that forum have been nothing but arseholes and been totally negative. I mean if your not going to say something productive why bother saying anything at all.
    Is it just me or have other people experienced this?

    You have to understand, over there its going to be a high quantity of people who view Meshuggah as their favourite band, and some will expect nothing but Meshuggah clones.

    Over here, you have people listening to pretty much anything, as this place isn't limited to fans of a certain band, so there are likely to more people like your music than dont. Also, most people on here are pretty laid back and if they don't like your music, they'll just look at another thread.

    Well thats interesting because some of the guys always seem to call stuff i post really derivative and just copying meshuggah sikth dillinger etc. so it cant be that they are just expecting to hear meshuggah clones. dont get it

    Yeah, but they still worship the bands which clone Meshuggah :), because its not a clone, they wont like it, hell they'd probably say my stuff copies Meshuggah and its nowhere near, yet if I became the next Coprofago they'd be all over it.

    At the end of the day though, I wouldn't worry about it, its only one forum, about 3 or 4 people on it at that. The Meshuggah forum is one of the slowest moving forums too, used to be pretty vibrant over there but thats about 5 years ago.

    Exactly.

    Plus, I've found the general attitude of this board to be welcoming and friendly. This is a reflection of the owner and moderators - well done, guys!

    I'm still looking for a drumming forum with this kind of quality... :D

    Yeah, the Meshuggah forum is really negative. Most of them just bitch constantly about how crap they think Meshuggah are nowadays. In fact, half of the posts don't make any sense. When you try and post, I find you have no idea what the hell other people are on about. What's the general consensus? WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!!!!!???!?!???!? :scream:

    OK, rant over. :D

    As have I, and now i appreciate it more. If you check the meshuggah forum Ive posted a link in the other bands section, about If Fire Would Fall, read what they say if your interested.

    with the exception of the members that i know from this fine establishment that post on the mesh forum,i find the great majority to be a bunch of immature negative assholes who like nothing more than to flame and generally make one feel not welcome.

    I find it's the same with any band specific forum, you get a lot of asstards. I would rarely, if ever, visit the forums of even my favourite bands. Hell, even the brand specific guitar forums are full of jerks a lot of the time, I can't stand the Ibanez board for example.

    But then again, I find it rare to ever, ever get a forum that comes close to how awesome this one is. You guys are the best. ;)

    I don't think they are negative but maybe a bit close minded from time to time.

    yeah, and close-mindedness breeds negativity! I remember you complaining about this before Nik, just tell'em to fuck off. You're music's good, very fuckin good, it's only cos it's not br00tuhlz and tr00.

    So, what did they say exactly? if u don't mind spilling...

    Ibanez board is eh alright, I just find the forum system they run to be a bit :ugh:. Also like 3/5 words you write are censored whereas here I can say fuck shit cunt... :lol:

    When I went to the Mesh forum it seemed like the entire place was packed full of inside jokes everyone laughed at and I was just ?_?

    Bulbinator posts there some bit though.
