Summer Rules! NEW MEMBERS PLEASE READ

Hi all,
We've had an unusually high number of 'summer friends' join us this year, and the forum quality has suffered a bit due to some lack of awareness of rules and expectations. We want you all to find the help you need and become a part of the community, but it's important to maintain some standards of content and basic usefulness.

Please take the time to read the full forum rules in the Rules and Resources sticky, but mostly here's a short reminder list of the most common problems:

  • Necrobumping. If you are searching through the archives, please take a look at the thread date before you post. If the thread is more than a month or two old, please don't post in it unless there's a very good reason (e.g., you started the thread and there's been an update.) If you really have something to say or ask about the subject, start a new thread.
  • Settings threads. Please use the ultimate settings thread.
  • Low-content or opinion posts. Please don't just post half a line asking what the best guitar is, or two sentences about how you like stratocasters. Have a question; be specific; give us information. It helps us give good answers, and it keeps the forum useful for people who need help.
  • Multiple threads. Please don't make multiple threads on the same topic, and especially don't copy and paste one thread to multiple subforums Take a minute to make sure it's in the right place and you'll get the help you need.


Temporarily, the mods are going to be giving warnings for not following these rules. We've had a big rash of necrobumps and subpar content recently and we want to make sure that it doesn't turn into the norm.

Please feel free to post here or send a private message if you have any questions or issues.

excellent

admittedly your winter is better than our summer

Actually just checked. your winter is slightly worse than our summer by about 1-2 degrees. and you still get more sunshine in your winter than we get in our summer.

What is your opinion on necrobumping multiple threads on strings and settings in the summer months? Discuss.

i don't know if you were referring to me at all, but here is my thouoghts.

necrobumping is tough. if people read the rules it would be better, but i have been on other forums that discouraged posting something new, and would continue to the past. that is what they did. but you would have a sparkplug post with 400 comments with the first being five years ago. so i don't like necrobumping. it was a a mess. so i think more need to be closed ASAP, and explained that to the person that "go start a new post and we will help you there, but don't necrobump and watch the date" thats what i do when i see them then i usually report.

strings need to stop completely or need to be allowed. we need consistency. at the page when you are looking at subforums, under GG&A it does mention 'stings' in there. maybe that would change then.

multiple threads should get them down to one post per topic. close some stay up with the other. if its on different forums, close one and say not to do it and tell them and keep whichever thread's best to go to get proper help.
