At least thank the people who acknowledged your post. Just writing "Bump" after someone has taken the time to check out your stuff and leave a comment just makes it seem like you are only after attention and want to hog up the front page. :icon_neutphrygian said:bump
Agreed. I think his ego is overloading his ass...... could really use a course in manners ......... be a cold day in hell before i would EVEN consider listening.kc_artist_rocker said:At least thank the people who acknowledged your post.

Obviously not on this thread...that has been an oversight forshadowed by your "reprimand" and the Insulting comments from the followup gentleman vintage gnat.I have posted and made comments and thanked most every poster.
wow buddy, your bad now. what makes you a real asshole, and idiot in this post is the fact that you don;t wanna listen just because someone posted a internet term in the topic. :icon_rollAgreed.

It is when you are hogging up the boards with 9 posts in 3 days.....let me say that again....9 POSTS! Normally people only have 1 to 3 posts total on this board at a time.....But 9!!!! I asked him nicely to chill out on the mega-posting and just spread them out a bit over time. So what's he do the next day (after posting 5 the first day)....he posts 3 more...and 1 more yesterday.rich2k4 said:c'mon guys. i dont think posting bump is a big deal
You should check the stats before you make a remark like that. Let me spell it out for you...rich2k4 said:so you guys should get your heads out of your asses
While I respect all opinions and do not discourage anybody's, my opinion is that Phrygian is a bit too into himself and not enough into what this site has to offer or the wonderful community members and their talent featured here. While Phrygian claims to have left replies for others, the stats state it plain and clear:rich2k4 said:the more comments the better. whenever i post here i rarely get any replies, maybe its my posting of bump, but its also insulting to the topic creator when there is 200 views and like 2 replies. it makes it seem that people just enter the topic and leave without listening.........just my opinion
I will let VB field this one as it is not aimed at me....your turn VB.rich2k4 said:wow buddy, your bad now. what makes you a real asshole, and idiot in this post is the fact that you don;t wanna listen just because someone posted a internet term in the topic. :icon_roll
Not a problem Rich. :thumbup: I personlly feel that the "Bump" option should be a last resort effort to rejuvenate a dying post that a poster may feel did not get the coverage it deserved. But there are other ways to strategically bump a tune without looking self-serving. For instance, thanking the most previous responder gets the same desired result as merely typing "bump." Or even contact a friend/fellow G101 community member and ask them to check out your tune and leave a comment. Sometimes that is all it takes to keep a post in rotation.rich2k4 said:sorry, thanks for explaining. if this is the case then i agree with you guys.
Very well put SG. Everything you wrote rings true. I was just downstairs cleaning the garage and had a whole internal dialog about this situation and SG has basically just paraphrased it quite closely. The last thing I want is for Phrygian to leave or even feel not welcome here. i personally would like him to stay, as he is a great, well-rounded musician and I also think he seems to be a genuine nice guy. I just like to see a more even proportion between posting recordings and interaction with the community. To be honest, I don't really care if someone posts a bunch of songs as long as they reciprocate a relatively even proportion of feedback on other people's posts and thank people for giving them feedback. That is really the only point I want to make about this whole deal.sgstd said:Well...I normally don't get involved in online altercations but, I'll make an exception this time. Phrygian...you seem like you're a genuinely decent guy...and I know that KC and Vintage Brat are...so, I believe that y'all just got off on the wrong foot. I think you just got a little over zealous in posting so many songs. I've been on this site for quite awhile now and pretty much know what most long time members are looking for in the way of site etiquette. I also live in Vegas so, if you'd like together for a couple drinks sometime and talk about music, guitars, this site, etc I'd be happy to do that. As I said, you seem like a nice guy and I don't think anyone's intentions were to run you off. PM me if ya want.
