Could we have a Bass Gallery?

    The thread on posting pictures of your basses appears to be the most popular on the whole board, but is getting a bit unwieldy, making it difficult to find the pics amongst all the chat and also some of the pics are just taken from manufacturer's websites or catalogues.

    Wouldn't it be nice to have a "Gallery" where it's just pictures and only of people's own personal basses - no talk, no generic pics?

    What do you think - is this something that we should have or could suggest to Paul?


     
  2. Sure that would be great. No talk, just the owner and the model of bass. Oh yeah and the picture :)
     
  3. I'll put in a call to the man. GM is likely a bit busy to keep up with this.

    I think this is a great idea!

    I'm guessing it would be something off the forums...more like a "Members Gallery" link up there under the banner ads. That sounds like a cool idea...it's all up to Paul, though.

    Is it possible...just to include bass pics in a person's profile?

    If you like, you can always put a link to page where
    your pics are to profile. It would take hours to
    open all profiles just to see the pics.. With gallery,
    you can always put a link to there from your profile.
    We could have own box for those links too: 'Go to
    Deynns bass gallery pics by clicking here!' for example.

    So far everyone thinks it's a good idea - any contrary opinions?

    I suppose it's then just a case of asking Paul if and how we can do this?
     
  12. I think it's a great idea, too, so THAT should seal it :D

    I'd rather not have people looking at my basses. It's personal.






    :D
     
  14. I vote for it. If you're bashful about showing yours, then just be a peeper and look at all the others. It can't hurt and could generate a lot of talk about features, colors, models - anything! Pediatric Ward for the new purchases, Geriatric Ward for the elephant graveyard and Family Pics for the current ones. Just no Spouse for Sale Section!!
     
  15. Umm, yeah.. it would. So let's do it! Someone start it. I would, but the group shot I just took of mine is still in the camera.
