    Listed below are a series of topics, and links to previous discussions of same. I'll be adding to this list periodically whenever anyone suggests a new topic that should be covered here. For the sake of housekeeping and cleanliness, I'll be keeping this thread locked and stuck to the top of the forum: so if you have any suggestions or links to send me, please notify me by PM. And special thanks to Samuel for getting the ball rolling.

    NEWBIES: the purpose of this thread is not to discourage posting by new members, but rather to encourage informed posting by new members. Feel free to respond to any of these older threads - if you do, they'll get bumped back to the top and become open discussions again in case you have any questions or anything to add. You are of course also always welcome to start a new thread in any of the forums. Welcome to Talkbass!

    Bump.

    Just a note to let everyone know that we were getting complaints about too many sticky threads at the top of this forum, so I've moved the links to the Katrina, Prescott, English, and Database threads here to this thread and unstuck the others. Thanks!
