This is so true, and some of the most active threads are about PRAISE AND WORSHIP bands (I'm not acxustomed to this crap because in Italy we don't have them, it makes me laugh!)
But that forum is so crowded and variegated! It's a good thing!
I have found friends and tons of competent people as well, I love especially the doom and stoner thread (although I don't play doom/stoner), those guys are awesome :)
And you can find infos about any niche effect /amp/bass you're curious about. It's not bad at all. I like it, you just have to dig to find the interesting stuff.

Talkbass just seems to be like 90% Alembic and Tobias dudes.

There are too many but it's not the majority IME ;)
The vast majority are precision dudes I think, but being a "generic" bass site it's normal maybe :)(that's why it would be so good to have a non-generic musicians forum like this being MORE ACTIVE!)
There are EGC dudes as well, I think stats reflect the "average" stats of bass players population after all. But a large user base is good so everyone more or less can find like-minded users to interact with. As a beginner (and not interested in alambics :mrgreen:) I have always found ot helpful. And fun, very often :)

The glory days of this forum were when it was mostly Chicagoans, before carpetbaggers like me started showing up

Forii works great for me. Except the dead youtube links. Which is every single one of them on the entire forum. They just show up as some phpbb box or something.

I'm on a computer as I don't have a cellphone. Hope this forus doesnt go down that horrid sterile route to becoming another white sheet of text that looks like it's from 1997. Fuck that shit. Fuck smartphones. Get a computer and type your shit out with that. Not on facebook. Not on fucking twitter. On forums. You can just stroll right the fuck back in to some thread from 2003 and pick up right where the bastard left off. Try that shit on twitter.

Exactly.

Also I don't know about you guys but I'd rather post on a forum run by FM Steve than one run by Mark fucking Zuckerberg. Hello... guys...? Anybody still here?

Huh, oh well each to their own.

Yeah you can't exhume necrothreads on twitter!

Updating the phpBB would only fix visualization issues on phones and maybe add newest features like alerts (I find them useful) .
It doesn't change much, no worries about that! :D

This forum has always positively encouraged exhuming necrothreads, an attitude which I wholeheartedly endorse. In fact I've never understood why anyone anywhere ever had a problem with doing that. Whenever I encountered a forum with an anti-necrothread culture, it made me think that the forum users considered the words on the forum to be disposable garbage, and I would be inclined to take their word for it too.

On this forum you can read many fine and insightful pieces of writing crafted over the course of many years and conveniently catalogued by subject, some contributed by people who are sadly not even alive any more, which is much better to my mind than the fast-flowing social media open sewer most people prefer to heave their opinions into nowadays.

I'm new to this forum, and since I am here I have read TONS of interesting threads from more than 15 hears ago, and it's great I have the chance to (sometimes I exhume, sometimes I just enjoy reading some older posts)
This wouldn't be possible elsewhere, forums have the greatest value for this reason. :)
