    Most bands have drummers and I can't figure out why there is no drum forum. Drums are gear just like guitars and amps. I think it is something that would take off and be useful. Anyway, thanks Brian for at least the consideration and thanks for constant improvement to TGP!

    A suggestion (..sorry if already proposed)
    There's been a lot of banging on re deleted threads & why recently.
    Why not leave the title in place, delete all posts but one explaining why the deletion, lock the thread & leave it up?

    minor suggestion...update your classic smilies. It's not 1996 any more lol. (yes, they are THAT dated looking) ..the new ones, which aren't really new anymore, were never that good , and actually quite a more unimaginative than the ancient originals lol. It doesn't take much creativity to envision updated smilies that are as entertaining as the originals but far more modern looking, right?

    Re: Smilies

    Nothing wrong with the classics in my book, and a lot of sites have given in to the urge to fix what isn't broken by making it worse.

    Some more choices, sure, maybe, but keep the classics too.

    The classic smilies are better than those lame fleabags and other ridiculous animated things that pass for emoticons on Facebook.

    The classics are by far the best IMO, they have a nice defined character and originality. I don't care for the newer ones but to each his own I guess.

    The newer ones are sort of candy sweet lame - but the ones on Facebook are even lamer.

    I just thought of a cool little piece of data that would be great to see. A map of the world showing the concentration of TGP members. It could be anonymous to protect any private data, but what a cool representation of how the world is represented.

    Interesting thought, Sundog964!

    i'm inclined to agree, i frankly wish the classics that were replaced by the new ones could be recovered. when they're too big, detailed and cartoony they distract from the text itself instead of doing their job of conveying missing context to avoid giving offence.

    the selection is getting long in the tooth though, it would be nice for some additions, both lo-rez and high.

    so any word on my favorite complaint since the great migration, namely the deliberate removal of that awesome "upload file" button for throwing pics right into posts without jumping through a bunch of hoops?

    the "media" thing is cumbersome and confusing, it's easier to just use photobucket.

    I agree. no matter how much I edit and alter my photos, about 95% of them are still too large to be uploaded.

    A vintage instruments section seems like it would be almost impossible to avoid redundancy in the other sections.

    I haven't read the entire Thread, but I would really like to see an easy to use interface to post pictures to the Emporium. Reverb and eBay (sorry...) have a super easy way to post pictures that would be fantastic to use here on TGP.

    Thanks.

    To be honest with you, using the media tab, it's pretty easy to post pics here now. Even I can do it

    The tweo things I would love to see.

    Conversation mode. Would be easier to follow conversations. Replies would appear immediate underneath the comment instead of several comments later in the thread. Conversations and arguments that are not of interest could be collapsed by the individual user instead of having the unwanted information or arguement pollute the entire thread.

    Downvotes. Faulty information and repeated threads would be downvoted and then after a certain number of downvotes disappear based individual user settings.

    Brian, I applaud the decision to outlaw PP Gift.

    Well done, gentlemen, well done.
