    1. Why do I need 1000 plays to join this group?

    This rule is in place to ensure people don't get an account simply to troll the group. 1000 plays really isn't much, and if you are serious about joining you should have no trouble getting 1000 plays.

    2. What is trolling? What are trolls?

    Most people have encountered trolls before, but only some know what they are.

    A troll is someone who makes confrontational statements with intent to antagonise people. In other words, people who go to the Metallica page and say "Metallica sucks!" or somthing to that effect.

    The best way to deal with trolls is to ignore them, hence the popular phrase:

    DO NOT FEED THE TROLLS.

    If anyone is found to be trolling in this group, they are liable to be kicked from the group. All applicants will have there profiles checked to ensure they are not trolls.

    3. What is the difference between a troll and someone who dislikes a band?

    This group does not tolerate trolls, but we encourage open discussion and if you dislike a band, then feel free to say so. However, try to be reasonable, and explain why you don't like it. Do not use inflamatory language (this goes for responses too)

    Acceptable:

    "I never cared for Metallica's later albums. They are too poppy for my tastes."

    -"I understand what you mean, but personally I think the songwriting improved."

    Unacceptable:

    "Metallica's newer stuff is shit."

    -"Well go fuck yourself, n00b."

    See? It's easy when you know how!

    4. I think (band) would make a good connected artist!

    Well, make a topic suggesting it and we will discuss it.

    5. Is this group elitist?

    No. You can listen to whatever you want, and provided you don't troll and meet the 1000 post rule and talk in coherent english, you will be fine.

    6. Why isn't chat speak allowed?

    Because it makes things difficult to read. Using acronyms like 'LOL' is fine, provided you don't overuse them. We aren't spelling or Grammer Nazi's either.
    But

    "LYK I LUV METALIKA FTW LOL ROFLMAO KIRK HAMMET SHRDS AWSM."

    is a step too far.
