  • Where is everyone?

    So - i left and came back a while ago - where IS everyone these days? I know with the 'new' forum a lot of people left - any idea's where they all went? Is there a BSWTB volume 2.0 out there somewhere? This place is a ghost town!

      I don't know why people use Facebook as a new forum. It doesn't work the same way and the format is clunky. I have been hear for 17 years and still try to contribute.

        Facebook's Cover Band Central is what appears to me to be the topic clone of this forum although like Outkaster states, FB is a piss poor format for forum discussion.

          I really don't understand it and the way Facebook is designed things can go off the rails a lot easier the way replies are made there. It's terrible, even the Hammond and Leslie pages I like suck.

            I used to come here more often back from '97-'07 or so. The 'new' forum really did kill 75% or more of the regulars, but I mostly stopped coming daily because I generally browse here during work and back then I had boring tech support jobs with downtime. Now I'm higher up the chain and am always busy. I still play in the same coverband as 10 years ago, still chase gear and tone, just don't get to chat about it as much!

            Also, it's kind of lonely in here too

              It's been about four years since the last time I was here. It's really dropped off a cliff. I'm going to go check out the off topic forums.
              EVERYTHING I type (i.e. not a link or video) is only my opinion. In a sane world, that should not have to be said. But then, we are not living in a sane world, are we?

                ...and prior to the 'new' forums, I had 10,000+ posts, and then it was knocked down to somewhere around 4k ..

                PFFT!

                  Maybe nobody plays in bands much anymore?

                    I actually needed a break from that myself, it took a while for my replacement to appear but now I'm just performing in a duo with my wife. Low stress, low pay, less equipment, less gigs; it's working for me!

                      A lot of people play in the bands. The problem is they use Facebook for a lot of things. It's weird as it's affected a lot of online message boards. Facebook is really clunky to use. Even all the Hammond Leslie Speaker technicians post on Facebook and it's a bitch to have to drill down into threads to get stuff. I don't get the appeal actually.
