  • Harmony Central Forum Death

    I have seen a couple of generation upgrades that sent several forumites packing but nothing like this.  Look at the first page of this forum - all way to Friday.

    This is (or more accurately WAS) a cool forum with some really interesting posters and off-topic threads. But definitely not friendly to n00bs or 'outsiders' like myself.

      Please, let the old guard go away. HCAF was a cesspool. 500 threads about satanz and teh pronz. Not everyone plays metal, stoned alone in their mom's basement or practices each week with a band that gigs 2wice a year.  Good riddance. Players that wanted to talk about all kinds of amps, not just metal amps, were driven away and, were driven away by all the wannabes who thought Murdoch and Dolf were cool.

        So now, no longer a Cesspool of 500 threads about satanz and prons, just only 1 thread about nothing..........

         

        Great improvement!

      Update: like Neil said, you be bonkers.
      The community here was awesome but the digs &amp; spirit of the place has been in decline ever since it became a business venture rather than a simple collective and this latest gong show really brought the chickens home to roost.<br><br>Necessity is the mother of invention, ergo: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.guitarampboard.com"><font color="#0000FF">www.guitarampboard.com</font></a>.<br><br>So long and thanks for all the fish, love izzy.<br><br>

        That's fine. Call me bonkers.

         

        It's quite amusing to see people that swore never to come here ever again. And yet..maybe they get an update thread form another site, maybe they just cant help themselves. But they come over and often just do some drive by bombings. Not to encouage or grow the forum. Not to impart some amp or musical wisdom. Just to hurl insults.

         

        So call me bonkers....at least I am not like that. Not sayin I am better....just saying at least I am not that.

      Its kinda... funny to keep trying to convince a few guys who are content with hcaf how dumb they are for not going GAB. Who cares?
      I went, but I'm just not the type who obsesses.

      This new maps forum is a shell of its former self.     Some of my all time fave threads involved the more highly philosophical stuff like this - there were so many tools, it was always good for the lulz --->

      Just amazing how this forum specifically has died. I don't think some sort af re-launch could bring this back to life.

        I've never seen such a mass exodus ... I was on HC amps for probably 10+years, and looking over these threads - only recognize a couple names.      It was like the rapture happened and all the good ones have vanished and all thats left are the heathens ...


    • #12

      I'm going to do a podcast episode about the trials and tribulations of the HC forums over the years. 

      If you have interesting stories or comments about the good times or bad, or just a summary of your experiences here, please leave a voicemail and I might use it in the show:  (415) 763-ROCK (7625)

      I'm also going to interview someone from the new board and hopefully an insider from HC.

        I think a very interesting factor is it appears it was just the amp forum that got sandy vag....er...upset. For the most part. What a very interesting fact. I'm sure all forums felt some effects, but why just one evacuated to their own domain? What's the pyschology of that? You should use that angle in your program. Everything else was equal. What is/was it about the amp forum that made it and it alone create a diaspora from the HC software change?

         

        I'm not saying it's good or bad....I'm saying it is VERY interesting...in a clinical sort of way. I do in fact think it is good. It shows you have the power to change things and make you own way, if things are unacceptable.

        I'd love to see society apply this to our potlical landscape. The Tea Partiers tried, but the public ridicule in this modern climate clamped them down. Maybe "fundamental change" and/or European-style collapse is what we desire after all. A global level playing field (a pipe dream- china wont level the field) and a strong America never again. Good stuff.
