This Forum is about nothing

Post by Sonnya » Tue Jul 09, 2013 6:28 pm

:alright: This forum is dead, no responses, no input, it's like a church that has no spirit and everyone just sets and looks dead... Sorry expected much more.

The forum does go through peaks and troughs. Summer holiday times are often very quiet.

I for one am grateful that the site owner is willing to incur significant costs to give us this forum free of charge and that he and his moderator give their time for free too. At least the forum is not awash with trolls like a lot of others.

Perhaps you should consider setting your own forum up?

I do not think anyone has put a gun to your forehead and forced you to this forum. Your expectations of people seem to be big. Run home and questioning yourself.
I can only recommend you to work on yourself and your problems. You can do it with us in the forum or reject it. The choice is yours.
VB is right. 12bar lines up with this forum and taking money out of his own pocket.

Music sets tongues wagging and have always done it. Music brings out things from people that they themselves did not think about it. Got a problem with that?
People need to talk about anything and everything and there's an off topic part of this forum.

For me with my problems, I need feedback on more than just the blues. Life is more then blues.

As you know I'm on holiday and managed to get a sometimes even working :big_smile: internet connection, but my time is reserved for my family. Without a guitar I can't even record something. It may be a bit too quiet, but feel free to put some live into it - start a collab, a discussion, upload a song. :handshake:
Next month I'll be back! :chicken:

Sonnya... not sure what you expected. This forum goes through quiet times and busy times. If you want to liven things up, like 12bar said, post up some music or start a collab. I agree with MR and VB in that this is actually a great forum with no trolls and the admin and moderator do a great job of providing us with a place to post music, discuss various topics, and share experiences. Many people have learned and grown musically because of this forum. I reaffirmed my love for playing because of this forum.

This is a wonderful forum...in a day of facebooks, soundcloud, and the myriad of social networking sites out there, I am amazed that this forum continues to exist sometime myself. It does however, because of a kind-ship, only such a small, dedicated forum can have. People here are friends, and share their thoughts, music, and ideas, through their creativity.
Please do not judge this forum just because you too a quick look, and it did not meet your expectations immediately! please, either move on, or join the community, knowing that as VB said, it has it's ups and downs as far as participation goes.
This place is like a long lost friend, who will always be there........

This is a great forum with friendly members. :thumbsup:
Sometimes there's up and down about the forum activity.
It can happen, but doesn't mean it's dead and empty.
A forum is also a collaborative space where your input is highly appreciated.
You can share your thoughts as well as your music or start a collab if you're willing to. guitar_fire::

:icon_whoknows: It seems when you have a negative comment to make you do it. I'm not knockin' the forum operator or owner, just the lame members. It's dead because you make it dead, except when" Let me tell him off I'll give him a piece of my mind" Now I have a lot of action to my post, you hypocrites. You don't make the forum, so I will hang around to see if it does come alive, if not I'll move on.

Hmm. It seems to me that every reply to your comment was polite, and many were encouraging you to participate, and you call us "lame" and "hypocrites". Did we as a group hurt your feelings somehow? :alright:

At an average of 2.5 posts a day for the past 3 years I will admit to occasional feelings that I spend TOO much time on this forum. :icon_whoknows:

But in a way similar to Blindboy having his love of playing reaffirmed by this forum, I had my confidence to try playing guitar wonderfully boosted by the thoughtful consideration and help of others here.

We go through periods of time where members are busy elsewhere with real life, but I just keep posting and am happy to wait for longer to get responses in those quiet times. I'm on other forums which are much busier, but I don't feel the same community spirit there.

It does seem a shame that you feel the need to start insulting members - I'm not sure that telling people that they're "lame" and "hypocrites" will encourage them very much.

Please let keep things cooled down here :icon_whoknows:

We don't have to agree or even like what someone has to say about 12bar, but as long as it's not abusive or agressive, there is no reason to get exited :beer:

I'll add my 2 cents, I love this forum, I'm best described as a lurker.

I learnt so much from the contributions and the blues lessons in particular, Thanks for all the information.

Sorry.

I am overloaded with crap inside me. I keep away in the future so I don't harm someone again.

You didn't harm anyone Michael, I just wanted to catch things before it would have changed into a catfight.
You're a good guy :)
