      Oh, and wanted to whine about living in the only place in the world with an overabundance of both bass players and sound providers.

        When I moved to Idaho Falls, I posted a note in the music store that I was a bass player looking for a band. I got a call asking if I could play lead guitar.

                    Yah, there are so many more forums out there to migrate to that there were when HC was at its peak - and so many have already done so during the "bad times" here.

                    IMO this latest change could have been much better promoted beforehand - I didn't hear about it until it was already down and I'm here quite a lot. I suppose there was an announcement somewhere but not where I could see it. Probably my fault for running an ad blocker LOL.

                    In any case another catastrophe so far with no visible improvement over the last software to me - although maybe they got the spam blocking working now?

                        I don’t think the change was announced at all, and I seem to recall an Admin stating as much.

                        Although it’s been a while and things still aren’t perfect, I think (sincerely hope) that it’s kicking ass soon and things pick up.

                          It's pretty good as-is but I need to figure out what I did with my nut files so I can lower the nut slots a touch - I'm pretty picky about that. But it's quite playable as-is. The frets look a bit "funny" and otherwise the action is super low - I suspect this one's seen a Pleck machine which is crazy for such a low-priced instrument. It does sound as close to a single pickup 'Ray as a passive bass can which is what I was after .

                            ALL forums have declined in the past few years. I blame Facebook primarily, but also perhaps special-interest forums have peaked in popularity (like CB radio did in the 70s). I don't think it will EVER be back like it was. The numerous re-vamps, re-boots have been poorly managed here over and over again. If a junkie can't get their fix for a day, they'll tough it out; if they can't get their fix for a week, they just might go CLEAN. HC forums went down, came back up but were often un-usable or very slow, only to be taken down again, sometimes for days at a time. It got to the point it was just an exercise in frustration to check the forum. Then, worst of all, they changed the URL for the forum, so when I tried to pull up the HC forum from my browser's bookmarks, I was directed to a "404 not found" error, so I thought for several weeks the HC forum was gone entirely. (this was about the time that GC was sold, so a wholesale forum & website shutdown seemed plausible) All they had to do was redirect people from the old URL to the new one, but NOOOOoooo.

                            TalkBass did a much, much better job with their new forum software. The forum was down for a few hours, came back up with no issues. I didn't have to re-apply for my user name, I didn't have to reset my password, my post count wasn't changed. Yes, the new layout is different, but the site works well and is as fast as the old forum. As a bonus, freeloading non-payers such as myself can have an avatar on TB now.
