    I guess I am old school. I liked, preferred seeing a member's time on TGP at a quick glance instead of pushing buttons to access what use to be there in the first place.

    It will be going back to the way it originally was; likes will not appear and the member's sign up date will show.

    Hmmm... but "Likes Received:", which shows up with the TGP_Mobile style, isn't there... :(

    On chrome and firefox for android the font size is now locked to a permanent small print barely able too read. No, I don't need glasses.
    I would just like to be able to read posts here.
    I have tried adjusting the font in the browser and it does nothing for this site but it does change it on others.
    Thanks for reading this

    Howdy - I'm using the TGP_Mobile_Dark theme in Chrome on my Win10 machine, and I've noticed that ever since the site update that my thread Alerts aren't consistent. Is there a delay or is this a bug? (I've tried hitting refresh)

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure where members can suggest changes, or even whether we should, but I'm going to take the risk of posting a suggestion here, if you don't mind?

    What I'd like is a new section called something lke budget and beginners' lounge (or just budget lounge) because one of the main strengths of a community such as TGP is also its weakness at times, allow me to explain.

    Sometimes members, including myself, buy gear that is very cheap, MIM guitars, cheaper SS and tube combo amps, behringer pedals, etc, and are happy with this gear and love to discuss it.
    There are many members here, the vast majority I believe, who have a lot of disposable income and think nothing of dropping a few grand on an instrument or an amp, which is really cool, I absolutely love learning about their gear and experiences, it really is awesome, however, sometimes when people who don't have anywhere near those kinds of budgets want gear, sometimes it can be a little bit difficult to converse about it (don't get me wrong, usually people are cool about budget gear) where people are used to using the far more expensive gear and perhaps look down on cheaper gear (in rare cases), or don't seem to realise that people don't have the same budgets as them, and what they consider cheap while suggesting gear may be what others consider really expensive, which at times can be interesting, because you learn more about gear, but at times can be alienating (and it has lead me to spending above my means at times, my own fault! :p ), and also, what's sometimes considered pretty good to people who are beginners or on low budgets is sometimes slated and considered rubbish to the people who are neither beginners nor restricted by budgets (a Spider IV might be the best thing ever for a university student who has just started playing guitar, but John Smith who has been playing for 40 years and has a room full of expensive vintage guitars, pedals and amps would consider it trash, perhaps, just to use a vague, realistic hypothetical example), and it would mean that more like-minded people who love their cheaper, "lower standard/quality" gear [relatively] can have a place to discuss it, and the main sections would also have fewer people who want to talk about products that aren't so popular on this board, myself being someone who would definitely continue to enjoy and love the main sections AND make the most of a budget gear section.

    My suggested format would be:

    BUDGET AND BEGINNER LOUNGE
    • Budget guitars and basses
    • Budget amps, cabs, speakers and headphones
    • Budget effects, pedals, strings and things
    • Budget recording and live gear
    • Budget modelling and digital effects
    Is this something that the TGP powers that be would consider in the future?

    It's worth asking, right? :)

    I for one, think it's a good idea. We have a small builder's section(aka boutique), why not one for cheap gear. I have & love both types! Count me in!
