Other interesting Bass forum related items:

BASS CHAT

On UG Chat, we do have our own chat. Its a great way to get to know the forum members better and talk about things not always related to bass per se in an environment better suited than say, oh the Forum plan thread.

Either go to

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/chat/

and then choose channel #bass

or if your using a IRC application the address is:

irc.connorhd.co.uk (and join #bass) OR

irc:// 209.20.78.13/bass.

Its better to use the "named" link rather than the IP address, because the IP has been known to change on occasion.

The Bass forum picture library

This is a photobucket library of the forum's bass collection.

To view the photobucket album click below:
UG Bass forum picture library

to contribute bass pictures, email them to the following address:

The address is: UGBassForumPhotoLibrary@hotmail.co.uk

When you send the pictures please remember to include your user name and a link to your ug profile.

Ooh awesome...*reads*

Edit: okay I have questions. You can get a warning for starting a thread without searching...but you can get a warning for necroposting? Sounds like a lose-lose situation. And just to clarify - calling you a wench is acceptable but a fascist isn't? Where's the boundary in acceptable ways to describe our esteemed moderating team?
Quote by IndianRockStar
So what are the chances this is more on topic than the last forum plan? Rules have stayed the same, no?
No chance. It'll stay on topic until Chris is online is my prediction.

SMB, the way my deitic (yes, gods can make up words) ass understands the situation to be is that Searching is for FINDING ANSWERS. What's this for, can someone recommend me a good so and so, etc. It's for reference. The point is to look for and find answers without having to post ANYTHING AT ALL.

Necroposting is posting a thread that has either died of old age or was killed (i.e. the answer to the question was found). That is, posting on a thread with no "life" left in it. Bumping is different - typically when a threadstarter has new information. Like that thread today about the forum member who passed up a SUB, but later bought a Highway One Precision. Totally relevant to his post, gives new information, and breathes life into the thread. Not one of these *insert Anarkee's examples of necroposting here* deals.

And about the wench thing, I assume she means that inside jokes are cool but random insulting isn't, you jerk

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Lol, Dan--you made me feel all Joan of Arc-ish there. But then again, we all know what happened to her

But we have a great bass mod team all round imho.

And btw..yes Fitz is correct in his interpretation of the search/necropost/bump. And yes, inside jokes and ribbing between forum members is allowed, but attacking members personally in a trolling flaming sort of way or gunning for a mod for doing their job is not acceptable.

I just wrote "Without Tam the bass forum would be anarchy" then realised the terrible unintentional pun.

Makes sense (though I was more after humour than serious answers)

Boyce makes sad face and quietly mentions he doesn't know his dad

actually I got in contact with him the other day (it's been nearly ten years since I last heard from him) so maybe I should send him an email

or not

I find it a bit funny that we tend to get a bit anal about spam, but then spam the hell out of the rule thread. Kinda like teachers using cell phones in school when students practically get crucified for looking at the time on theirs...

Also, nice job anarkee

Well we're not allowed a chat thread but a blind eye is usually turned to going a bit off-topic here.

That's not a chat thread - that's a thread about the IRC chat! The fact that some of the chat spilled over is neither here nor there.

No because then you would end up with a dictator whose opinion is non-questionable even if it's wrong. By the way Pete Wentz is the greatest bass player ever, and anyone that argues will be banned.


I won't argue with that... although not arguing breaks Rule 7
