    One of my favorite members here vanished a while back. I know he was sick at one point. I'm hoping nothing too bad happened to the guy. I have no idea what his real name is. But I do know he contributed a lot to conversations and he built some ridiculously cool parts basses.

    I know he was dealing with health issues and hoping that's now a distant memory.

    For some reason, I cannot seem to tag @Dark Horse to this thread. Hope he is doing well, always appreciated his builds.

    edit: posting his name works but he isn't in the drop down.

    Banished to the provinces. Basschat (imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?) which is UK centric - but in English! If you speak French there's onlybass or German bassic.de
    I'm in Europe so am on all of them but talkbass is WAY more active. Though KBD does make up for much of that activity...

    Dark Horse was never banned and is not currently banned.

    Last activity shows in December.

    It's actually a lot more than you'd think. You'd be surprised at how many chances people get.

    Can't say about DH, but I could swear the last time I clicked on KBD's profile it said something like 'deactivated', tho just now it said 'this members profile page is unavailable.'

    As far as that deactivated thing goes... it could just be my drain bramage :wacky: but I was honestly kinda bummed out when I saw/ dreamt/ completely made it up

    Aaah, I wondered why he’d suddenly turned up on Basschat so much!

    Lol! Most UK-centric things are in English (there’s a clue in the name :roflmao::roflmao:) - unless it’s some obscure Welsh, Scots Gaelic or Cornish language specialist heritage site!!!!

    PS and, yes, hoping that DH has kicked his medical issues and is doing well!

    Yes, of course :) Just saying it's going to be a lot more accessible to a banished 'murkin than the other options ;)

    Says another 'murkin (me) who's a regular there ;) I used to watch the classified there daily. Not so much post-Brexit given one now has to add VAT, etc, but was great before for those of us in the EU. But that's a whole other ball of wax...

    As some of our press keep reminding us we’ve “taken back control” and these are “the sunny uplands of post-Brexit life”! :banghead::rollno:

    Hey what are the chances you guys could maybe start your own thread about whatever happened to KBD? Because he has nothing to do with the Dark Horse.

    Thanks.
