Because Rock Band is not mainstream yet, we know where the new users are coming. Within the past 2 weeks, for some reason, they've all migrated here from the Guitar Hero boards it seems.
The "Rock Band" forum has been flooded with repetitive, pointless posts. It's even caused Xzyliac to begin a "Noob Survival Guide" thread hoping for people to read it to answer all their questions.
Unfortunately, I've been seeing less and less of the people who have been on here for a while, and more new users just asking if there's double bass on the drums, what songs are included, and how does the singing work?
Before you criticize me, even though I registered in July, I've been checking out these boards since early May. There's been so many great in-depth conversations and discussions on these boards. But it seems like now each forum has the same thing that is happening to them:
Announcements: Everytime hmxsean posts something, and it doesn't include actual game news, there's always 2 to 3 idiots demanding new info. Let's show support and tell them how great they're doing!
Rock Band: This forum is now just flooded with the same questions over and over, that can easily be answered simply by reading the front homepage where Gameplay, Instruments, and Songs are detailed.
Your Ultimate Setlist: This forum has gotten past the point of ridiculous. People making lists that consist of at least 5 songs from their favorite band, and with no diversity. Now and then you get a well thought out list, but not often. You want your favorite bands picked apart and flamed to death? Post here!
History of Rock: This is where people can make you feel as stupid as possible. There's always people waiting to see a post that has some error so they can use their leet rock knowledge skills to pwn you.
Album Reviews: See "Your Ultimate Setlist" Another place to have your music preferences shot to Hell.
General: As there are still some great discussions in this forum, I'd have to say it's the only one that holds it's ground. Only problem is when posts that should go here are always found in the Rock Band forum.
I made this thread, just because it's tiring to see the same thing day in and day out. Above is all just my opinion, agree or disagree if you will. I just needed to get that all out.
I just need the friggin' game to come out already so I can stop wasting time on these boards
