MIDI Guitar Forum & Other Forums

Postby Kevio » Tue Oct 17, 2017 6:07 pm

The MIDI guitar forum has been removed, and all of the posts there moved into the main guitar forum. This is part of an ongoing process to pare down the entire BBS so there's not as much "clutter". Some forums may be deleted entirely - for example, "Product Suggestions" is going to be deleted, as there are other mechanisms in place for this (like Jeff's FB Live video sessions).

The reasoning behind this is there just isn't enough employee time to keep an eye on every single post with so many active members, so we're trying to make the BBS more manageable, less confrontational, and easier to navigate, especially for new members.

Thanks for the continued support!

What mechanisms other than FB are in place for this?

The main FB, the FB guitar group, Jeff's videos, YT comments, Twitter, etc.

The issue with the Product Suggestions - which has always been a problem - is that a simple suggestion turns into a 10-page discussion on why something is "right" or "wrong" or whatever. This is how it's always been, and there was even a sticky asking posters not to turn suggestions into multi-page debates, but that continued to happen, which ended up watering down any good suggestions that may have been posted. And many times, those debates ended up being...heated.

By and large, everyone here does a great job of keeping things civil and on-topic, but in that particular section, it seems like things often went off the rails quickly. And, like I mentioned, we're just trying to streamline things here so there's not so much stuff to weed through, especially for newbies, and also to take the load off the employees and volunteer moderators that have to read through everything here.

Tons of amazing content was there.

Some amazing old time bbs members would probably helped out for free, gladly, policing specific bbs sections.

Just my 2 cents. But what is done is done.
