Why GWing Is Better Than MySpace

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Remæus on Sun May 14, 2006 9:31 pm

I've said it a thousand times, and here's the top ten list:

10. It's just better.
Simply because I said so.

9. No annoying ads.
We don't have those flash banner things on GWing. And we never will.

8. No annoying music.
We don't have embedded music that's going to kill the music you're already playing, sound downright horrible, or simply sound like BAD MUSIC. Sure, we might have a radio station or two... sometimes... but definitely none of the annoying genre that is MySpace's embedded music.

7. No annoying flash animations embedded in content that all play at once.
I'm tired of hearing "Shake that ass, and let me see what you got!" at the same time "Numa Numa" is playing. I'm ESPECIALLY tired of either of these playing in conjunction with number eight. We don't have it.

6. Our gallery is better.

5. Our friends list function is better.

4. Our people actually care about you.
If there's something that's bothering you, or something you want, we'll do our absolute best to fix, add, or remove things that people ask for.

3. Because saturn said so.
<saturn> Every website that's not myspace is better than myspace.

2. Our people are nicer.
Seriously. You guys rock.

1. GWing isn't a cesspool.
99% of MySpace is the bottom 1% of society. Enough said.


And there you have it, folks. Any questions? Additions? Subtractions? Stock market predictions?

I dunno... Gundam music would be cool, but is not necessary. Other than that...I agree. I highly dislike MySpace users.

Exceptfor Numa Numa. Gotta love the stupidity of that fat dude... (shakes his head as he walks away, while quietly humming: Maiy e Uh hee...)

Yeah, Numa Numa's good. But JEEZUS. I have to scramble through the pages to find whatever rap crap is playing overtop of it, plus the users' embedded music... only to find that the content is altogether unreadable, generally stupid, and if it wasn't giving me a headache from the music, the unreadable text, it was killing my brain cells for lack of intelligent life.

I am totally sure that I am too old for myspace and therefor as far as I am concerned Gwing and myspace don't even occupy the same universe

I used to have a MysSpace account...as well as a few of my friends...here's my story.

Well, I got some good music (Coldplay) and nothing else, played it, and had a good ol' time pimping my site up...then I started going to other people's sites...

I swear, no people could be more retarded.

There were idiots everywhere, especially drunk idiots that like to take pictures of themselves crapping (It's happened!)

Eventually, after having 400 people comment me on how much Coldplay sucks, I gave up. I changed my name, took down all my pics, and said I was Trent Reznor, then never went back again.

Now, I trust only Gwing, the nice people, and for my journal blogging picture needs, I go to Tagged, where no one knows my name ^____^
I am Digit. I am a Forum Junkie. Hear me roar.

But coldplay does suck....they just want to be Radiohead lol, kidding (though I do think Radiohead is superior to Coldplay).

I have a myspace. I barely use it. Most of the people I've met through myspace...scare me/digust me. That doesn't happen here.

About Gundam Music...I have pretty much all of the soundtracks so it can be possible for me to get whatever anybody wants.

Yeah, I agree with Kiyoshi. I tend to get along with the people who happen to stumble upon GWing. I think we've targeted the right market.

This being the "Hey, I've got better things to do than to complain to everyone how it took me a year and a half to realize my girlfriend was sleeping with all my friends" market?

There's a time to live and one to die.
With your back against the final wall
Ya gotta let the bullets fly.

Let the bullets fly!
Don't 'ee mourn for me, my lads

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Kessa Cirtos on Tue May 16, 2006 9:02 am

GWing will not give you crap that you don't want to deal with. Here members are respected and if there is something that someone would rather not see (I.E. seuxal content and of the like) they are not pressed to aprticipate except through a bit of friendly peer pressure.

Also I get the feeling that on MySpace, most lie about themselves and that's not a feeling I get here regardless fo the fact that most RP as someone other than themselves. At least we're predicatable when we're not being ourselves, you can't count on that on/in MySpace.

Also the admin is much better, more attentive and gives a shit about the site. His concerns are to make the site better and to make sure that it does not go in a direction he doesn't want it to. That other dude, I doubt he cares what others do with their profiles.

As a former member of MySpace, I say that GWing is a much better environment where I learn more (than just about my friend's trysts with their Top Ten), meet new people that have similar interests and aren't completely perverted and trying to see pictures of me, and also where there's some good RP.

You can't get RP on MySpace, no matter how hard you try. Just for that GWing wins.

I think that gwing is the best because we can all express our literary power to the fullest extent or to the extent that one wishes to take it. My Space is full of txt tlk ...wh...people. I bet if you yell gerund they will all run away.

I have never believed in MySpace or LiveJournals for two simple reasons:

1. If I wanted to know about you, I'd ask.

2. If you want to know about me, ask.

In all honesty, with the atmosphere here I know people will ask if they have questions, where as over there for me it's "I really don't care that you can't see out of your left eye because you need to be a trendy anti-trendy because you can't let the media that you are using to convey this message, surpress the views you don't have." If I did, I'd ask. Simple, and if I don't care that you're a hippy emo freakshow with noone who understands you, why are you going to care that I'm a bisexual papa roach fanatic? You're not.

My daughter (4) likes Neopets, though it is still a considerable step up from myspace. I got there once by mistake and regreted it instantly. My ex's daughter spends almost all her time messing with myspace drives the ex up the wall.

Ugh! Myspace...

one word: perverts. They are everywhere in there, and they have an easy time finding the people they wish to prey on in there. I REFUSE TO BE PREY!

Okay. That was my little rant about Myspace. ::sigh:: If only certain other friends of mine would see the light and stop asking me to go to their page and tell them what I think...
