  • I'm done with musiciansfriend and guitar center until this website is fixed

    I've purchased a lot of stuff from them over the years - cables, amps, pedals, but I'm done. I'm not suggesting anyone else follows suit, I just feel like I'm part of the problem when I hand money to a mega-corporation that clearly doesn't care about addressing issues negatively impacting a core subgroup of it's target market. There are a lot of other options out there in the market place and I've purchased a lot of stuff from their competitors, as well. (BTW, if anyone from Sweetwater is reading this, it might just be time for your company to consider starting up a musician message board.)
    I don't play a lot of fancy guitar. I don't want to play it. The kind of guitar I want to play is mean, mean licks.

    Yeah it sucks when a free service you've grown to take for granted doesn't work and is all the justification you need to take your business elsewhere. Maybe to one of those other competitor's free forums

        Regularly visiting a free site in no way obligates me to make purchases from it's parent company. Also, I've never suggested I'm leaving the message boards, instead I'm simply not giving my money to the corporation who acquired HC and then let it fall into it's current state. As I said, I'm not suggesting anyone else follows suit.

            I'm not going to comment on the topic of this thread, but I do wish that this website was run by an independent company.

                This is probably the largest musicians forum database on the Internet, so it's become more and more difficult for the database servers to serve up data in a timely manner. I know they have been trying to keep from losing any valuable forum archives, but at this rate I think they need to split them off into a subdomain such as archives.acapella.haromony-central.com.



                I am sure they are working on it.

                    I'm all for voicing of opinions. It's when the responses turn into ridicule...that it becomes a problem. It's just not called for.

                            Maybe MF/GC decided to put all theirs eggs into social media? ...I hope not, I will be the first to admit that I would miss these forums.
