1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    I've been watching old Anderton's videos, and Lee and Chapman were completely gay for each other had an unbeatable chemistry. I get that these were basically infomercials but they were entertaining.

    I have a loose idea of what his grievous sins were, but can we identify a road to forgiveness? This is getting a bit silly.

    I don’t. The videos just feel like commercials. No disrespect to Pete but the chemistry just isn’t there.

    I haven't paid attention to all the drama surrounding him but I have to say I enjoy the Anderton's videos with Danish Pete & The Captain more than the ones with Chapman.

    Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the ones with Chapman-just not as much as Danish Pete.

    Bring back music gear mattering because someone made cool music with it not because some YouTube personality gave it their nod of approval.

    Psst...it's because they're commercials. They were always commercials.

    I just kind of figured that Chappers was on tour with a band or something and wasn't available for the demos...
    I don't know what happened to him....but why would I? I don't know anything....

    I really need to talk to Lee, (now that I'm thinkin' about it)....;)

    Yeah, I get that. That’s why I specifically mentioned that in the OP. The Chappers videos didn’t feel like commercials. Get it?

    I'm not much for internet dramas and I liked the Chappers/Captain vibe and repartee/double entendres. It's just not the same with Danish Pete, though I much prefer his playing :)

    So I say bring the Chappers back.

    The dudes are friends, and people dig their chemistry. That's cool. They should start a podcast.

    But for videos demonstrating the gear? Pete is a much better player in general and absolutely a better demonstrator. I don't miss Chapman at all.

    I've since found Rabea's demos, much more useful to me. Rabea dials in some great sounds.

    Rabea is great as well. I just miss the Chappers and Captain format. I feel like there’s enough room on YouTube for all of them.

    I have nothing against the guy (I don’t care about all that internet drama) but I don’t miss him. I don’t like his playing/demoing that I’m quite indifferent to his absence.
