  • Why isn't the bass forum split up in more forums?

    Well, I've been here a few times but this thing is unwatchable. We need at least an off topic forum, and probably different forums for equipment and general bass discussion. I'd like to come here more often, but in this status it's kinda frustrating.

        Hmm, you get used to it. Personally, I like the fact that I can keep track of all the threads simultaneouosly.

          I kind of like the chaos. I got used of it, and you kind of get to know the forumites a bit this way--at least their "forumite selves." I just ignore anything not interesting to me.

            I don't see how this thread is at all bass related.

              Go to the guitar forum. A thread will drop very quickly and many times without response.

              I bet if you asked a on topic question, you'd get the answer you'd need.

              If you a just trying to gain general knowldge of bass stuff just by reading threads that pop up, this might not be the best place to look.

                Yes, I'm already a member there, but I like the more loose attitude I find here. I know you can get used to it if you hang around and visit often - but this is only friendly for addicts (not offending anyone here, i've been a forum addict, just trying to avoid it a bit). If you come back after 2 days, the new posts are chaos. I'm not saying that it should be 10 forums, but 2 or 3 would keep things more readable and still tight. After all, the guitar forums of HC seem to be doing fine and they are seven. Can't see why the bass forum should have a different approach (I know it has less traffic, I'm not saying to make it seven forums too).
                And there are people who come here to talk about bass and not muslims. If you want that, you should be able to go to an off topic forum and talk about whatever.

                @Crescent: I know, it was mainly a question to moderators/admins.

                  That comes with the loose attitude. There's no way around that.

                    Feel free to move it to the bass off topic forum once it's created.

                      This forum is the best.

                      I can prove it.

                      You can come here knowing little or nothing about bass. Not even a player. In very little time, you can learn all the best gear to get for the best money, tutelage and encouragement on playing, tips on auditions and 'getting the gig,' become a semipro player, and become moderator. All in a very short period of time.

                      Eat that.

                        Sure, but I can't see how that would change if the same topics were put in 2 or 3 forums instead of one. 2 or 3 forums are really easy to keep up with for those who like the current situation, and it would be much easier for those who don't want the OT chat to follow what's interesting for them. You see, if someone is in the market for some new gear and would like to read the most recent equipment discussions (with no keywords in mind) it would be much easier to read the last three pages of an equipment forum than to read the last fifteen pages of this forum to find the equipment-related threads.

                          I much prefer the one open forum. I check out Bassnutz once in awhile and I check in with GuitarsCanada daily, but I just don't like having to look through all the different sub-forums.

                          Besides, it all the bull**************** that makes HCBF so much fun!

                            I'm not a big fan of subdivided forums.

                            If you're looking for specific gear or brands, the search feature works nicely.

                            If you're looking for general advice, this place is always rapid fire and friendly.

                            But if ya don't like it, ya don't like it.
