First of all, I would like to thank The Mods of the Bass forum and user's of the bass forum, for making it such a wonderful and peaceful place.

But we have to face a fact. A dark, terrible fact...


THE BASS FORUM IS NOW F*CKING BORING!

I know, we don't want to admit it, but it has become a bore, with the same "Which bass?!?!?" questions daily. We need some excitement, something fun to happen.

This is by no means an attack on the bass forum and it's user's, but a plea for something exciting to happen. Anything...please....

If you care so much, do something about it, it's not that bad.

Well, I agree.
People from the BUSH has pointed out, that we need some sort of privat chat, in the bass forum, away from the horrors of The Pit... But the answers was no, and some of them even got banned.

It is starting to feel very repetitive I will agree with you there. But it's not like we can stop the which bass threads, as long as there are new bass players on here there will be "which bass" threads and "can I put my bass through a guitar amp" threads. We do get the occasional good thread, but they are much less common .

Yeah I think he said if anyone plants a bush, they will get a warning.

I just looked through the rules, and Dan says no to the Ultimate Bass Thread, but I didn't see anything about a CT.

yeh i was taking the piss, if you hadn't noticed, it's a very bad reference to how the mormon religion was founded. but truth be told dan has shot down a community thread idea several times as far as i know and is offering warnings to anyone caught "planting a bush" as indie has already said.

That would be a great way if we could do that. However, I've only been in the chat once and I forget whether you can have more than one room.

With help from Connorhd I could probably get some type of Bass Chatroom set up. I'm not sure how many people we would get though...

And check out the Rule and Forum Thread a few pages back from the end of the thread.

Well, at least the threads seem to be improving a bit over the weekend, though the challenges to have musical or otherwise chat like behavior still remain. For example, I find it rather amusing Yertle and I had to have a quick exchange about Pere Ubu in the middle of "Which bass player you would go gay for" thread.

To the TS, yes I know, it has got boring but meh, what can we do about it?

And about a community thread... It's not going to happen. I would love one but UtbDan has said no, a lot. We must respect his decision.

If you want to chat a bit then perhaps just discretely put it into a thread with the person you want to speak to in, but at least keep it sort of semi-topical.

Another thing that's made this forum like worse than it was are new members posting like there's no tomorrow. Being active is good, but to take one example "Total Posts: 328 (51.89 posts per day)" of a certain member. This isn't being chauvanistic of old timers because he/she is a June '07er, but I find lots of the posts irrelavent and bordering on the spam line.
