Hi I'm New.

Totally New,

I just got my very first guitar,

It's a Fender Squier Bullet,

I was told it was from the 90's and it was made in Indonesia.
It's in Really great shape, haven't found a scratch on it.
It came with a Guitar Carrying Case (Bag)
A Strap, A pick, Two Guitar Chord Books, Cord,
and a 25W Lyon Amp (LA25DSP)
I got everything for $115.00

I think I got a great deal, cuase target has a Guitar and Amp (similar) for $200.

So anyway, I literally don't know how to work any of it. lol.

Just wanted to say hi, I'll be around asking questions.

Hey. If you have any questions, feel free to add me. Ill help as much as I can. And if I cant, you have tons of people who are willing to. IMO, most of the time, learning on your own is better than lessons, so try to figure stuff out for yourself to start with. Learning can be really fun, you just have to be patient.

Thanks Guys, Seems like a great Board.

What do you guys mean "Add Me"

You mean to the VBulletain Freinds Option. I've never noticed that to do anything on other Vbulletain Boards, does it actually work here?

That's kinda cool, I've seen other forums do similiar pages, it's a nice touch. I'll mess with it.

1) how do you find someones user page from the boards, clicking on there name or avatar doesn't seem to do it?
2) What does adding them as friends do ?

apparently something isn't working properly with your browser or your computer.
left-clicking on either the username or avatar should take you to their profile page.
in the case of your username/avatar, first it would link to your identity on the forums
https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/member.php?u=935595
then be re-directed to you on the profile pages
http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/4jacks/

not all that much, really.
it causes a smaller version of your profile picture to be displayed in their list of friends
and vice versa.
some users "collect" friends. sort of a status-symbol.
"friends" are okay
but, tbh, i think the real friends are the ones you talk to
through PMs, comments on their profile page or blogs,
or through discussions in threads out on the forums.

just because someone has a short list of friends doesn't make them uncool.
having a long list of friends doesn't make one cool.

cool is.

Actually I just looked at the link and assumed it was going to the wrong place without testing for a redirect

good show then

I believe VBulletain has an option to send a PM to everyone on your friend list.
Not sure if UG has it activated or not. I just thought, maybe this did something more, since everyone was saying to add them.
Since it doesn’t I think I’ll just conserve my list for people I PM.

No offense though guys, Thanks for the Warm Welcome!

the friends part is on the profile pages. completely different from the buddy list on the vB forum side of UG. you can use the buddy list through the control panel, but all that does is put a + sign after the users name when you see it in the users-online list.

since the Private Messaging system on the profile side is not linked to this, it has no effect. UG didn't enabled blanket PM mailings to all on your buddy list even before the profile messaging system became the primary method.

i wouldn't be at all surprised if UG moved even farther away from features the vB system. the programming on the profile pages is more easily implemented and seems to run more efficiently than vB. even the search functions on vB have intentionally been diluted so they require less resources. this was necessary to improve the speed of an over-taxed forum system.
