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 just rebuilt my pedal board, will be using an altoid tin for picks. Any cool ways to attach your slide when not in use? I'm assuming some sort of peg..?

    I clip a capo onto the back of my PT mini and use it as a Capo stand. Could work on he headstock too. My chrome slide fits tight to my clip on Capo.

    I clip a capo onto my mic stand and put the slide on that. Works like a charm.

    I've seen a couple of boards with those spring doorstops on, used as capo and slide holders. Always seemed like a good idea to me.

    Doorstop springs on a small piece of wood with Velcro. Felt cymbal washer to pad the ceramic slide.

    The rubber Dunlop mic stand pic holders come with a slide holder. My guitarist has one on his mic stand.
