At the moment you can't anyway. To do such thing you have to become a full member.


I know that, I just wanted to know anyway for when I do become a full member. I don't want to get perfectly good places for exploring demolished because of my naiveté in this subject.

I'm pretty new too. The best way to start out I've found is to research a bit. Go for a drive. Lower income/rural areas are a plenty with finds, industrial areas and railroad tracks as well but each location has its own risks. When you find a location, go home and research it (public tax documents can give a small insight to its condition and ownership). You've gotta do a little foot work.

Well, trying to discern my talent level in sarcasm would be hard to judge when you base it on my comment which was not intended to be sarcasm at all, so perhaps it is your ability to detect sarcasm that is lacking.

Since I am not a full member, as well as commenting on the rookie forums, it should be quite obvious that I probably do not know much about urban exploring and that is why I was looking for information, such as confirmation about whether or not putting a location on the DB map is actually counter intuitive if it actually makes locations torn down and demolished.

I am genuinely looking for rookie advice and find it distasteful that you had to come at me for no reason.


Sorry if I hurt your feelings.

Have you even looked in the DB?

So that we're clear I do not subscribe to the theory adding a location to the DB gets it burned down. That happens regardless of UER.

Yeah, while I keep my most sensitive locations off the DB I see nothing wrong with posting the less sensitive ones.

Okay.
Yes, I've looked at the BD. Probably would have asked what it was if I didn't.
Okay well, thanks for that anecdote.

I distinctly remember finding publicly accessible locations in the UER DB that were well worth the visit when I was a new member here. I was just starting out and the novelty of sneaking into abandoned places was still new and different. The DB provided me with an excellent opportunity to “practice,” and get better at exploring safely. This was an important learning phase for me. And, no, not all of the publicly viewable entries are demolished! A lot are, but a lot aren’t.

After doing this for a few years, I might be a little bit more picky now, but despite our various complaints about the DB, it is still quite useful. I’m basically trying to say, check out the DB and you might find something worthwhile.

I can tell sarcasm is not your strongest skill I am being facetious, once you are a Full Member yes, add locations to the DB keep just them Full Member only, its a bit safer than Instaglory or Flucker accounts...

Not long ago I was criticized widely for adding locations to the DB. Well the owner of this site built a fine DB and expected members to use it. End of argument far as Im concerned if you don't like the DB don't use it. I will still use it.



Fortunately the database is kept up to date and is in full working capaci--- oh nevermind

How would you know, given that you're a basic member? Unless you had access under a different, helicopter- named account?

Look, I understand me and that person sound a lot alike. But that isn't me. I'm just a little peeved that I drove to a location that wasn't there anymore and its not in my ability to fix it.

send a moderator a note they will mark it demolished based on your impeccable reputation as an explorer

why not just tell us which demolished location you drove to or, if youre for real about this Hell just send me a note I will fix it for you

(p.s. no, this guy is not blackhawk sorry)

This may have been mentioned before, but when searching Google (and Google images) always use the tool that lets you search based on time periods (24 yrs, month, year, etc). This will save you time and gas. I've also driven to places to find them demolished when I started out. It's easy enough to search for recent info on Google.

The DB is nice, but the explorer landscape has changed even since 2015 (when I started) and rarely do people take time to update location info on it.
