If value is needed here, I might as well go home and count my marbles. That's part of why I enjoy this thread - I don't feel like I have to contribute other than some camaraderieI have always loved the folks in this thread.... but I miss so much in short amount of time that I find myself way outside the momentum..... I just don’t have a lot of value to contribute.... I usually need find something that’s worth sharing..... I thought I had something brewing with a DSG video but I ran to issues and I’m trying to work out the uploading problem... so I’ll wait.
I agree,... but i feel i need to contribute something meaningful to that camaraderie as does everyone else even if they don't think they do..... there is value in just that. Friends are valuable.If value is needed here, I might as well go home and count my marbles. That's part of why I enjoy this thread - I don't feel like I have to contribute other than some camaraderie
Despite the fact that Dave put a sticky entitled "Political posting crackdown" on the board-- and despite the fact that the Minnesota thread and the two COVID threads vanished overnight-- we knew that a lot of members might not realize immediately that things have changed on this site.Thank you
IMO what caught us unawares was how much and how fast the crackdown came...
Such a request is not really necessary. We'd be here, there, and everywhere else whether asked to monitor things or not. It is, after all, our function.We have in the past openly asked the mods to police the trolls and warn us so the thread doesn't get dumped..
There is no storm, really. The only thing members need to do is understand the changes that have taken place, and to govern themselves accordingly.We'll just hunker down till the storm passes.
@Roberteaux , @LtDave32 ,
You’ve posted some well-detailed explanations in this thread, but I suspect this thread is only read by about ten people.
Even regulars can come here and skip over a couple hundred posts because they haven’t dropped in over three days.
Do you think it would be a value to the community to have your detailed info out in its own thread, and one that isn’t locked? Or might that just turn into a crapshow if it was the only subject of a thread?
We were proud of that, at the time. We let stuff slide here that wouldn't have lasted for 10 seconds on most of the other guitar-oriented websites out there.
No more, though. Now we're the same as every other guitar website I can think of. We'll be squashing everything that even demonstrates a potential for controversy.
I can't help it. I'm hopelessly addicted.Creamer/ French Vanilla - that is Heresy
It takes a really deliberate, determined dipstick to get himself banned.
