    ...of new members.

    There will likely be a lot of new faces joining here in the next few weeks.
    Harmony Central is revamping it's site and the forum redesign is beyond awful.

    There is quite a bit of talk from members there about leaving for good and TGP is at the top of the list of places they will be frequenting.

    I'll be among them. I've been a member here for a while but lurked more than posted. I've always liked it here but since I knew more people there, I posted there more. I think this will be changing.

    Don't freak out, there are some good folks there (soon to be here).

    Thanks Scott, I've been here for 5 years but have just been reading more than posting. I'll be here much more.
    I'm really loving the Digital and Modeling Gear forum. I use a GSP1101 and an H&K zenTera and I enjoy the discussions over there.


    BTW, thanks again for the username change. :aok

    I posted a similar thread in the Guitars section.. sorry..
    anyway, this place will really be busy pretty soon.. Lots of great HC'ers will be joining up..
    I know the mods here will keep the anger in check... HC is cool, but it IS a much more contentious forum than this site is.. The "angry ones" will be weeded out in short order I imagine...

    I am SPONGEBOB on HC,
    bulletbob here... I look forward to some serious guitar discussion here.. Lots of knowledgable players/owners/collectors/builders here. bob

    They'll get used to the way it's done around here quick enough. It's been funny to watch. Often they'll pop off like they used to and get slapped down hard by the mods. One guy went off so bad they just booted him after 2 posts. In the words of Andy Kaufman, every story needs a villain.

    The only significant differentiation I see between the forums here and at HCEG are that you have to pay to post a classified here. I wonder how much that will play into whether people "switch" or not?

    The other difference is that many of us have a ton of posts back there. Hey, I'll pay the $12 registration fee if you give me my HCEG post count!

    You say "they" like they're all the same:roll
    Some of us frequent both forums, and actually alot more in my case.
    If everyone bails, I'll miss HC. I don't go there for gear info, usually humor. that place has the funniest threads!

    We can't just have unchecked immigration. You won't be wise-cracking when they take our jobs here.
