I most certainly feel like TB is a community. We all geek out, talk about, get on each other’s nerves, agree, disagree, share experience, tips, pointers and opinion about all things bass. And sometimes life. Maybe not so much in the public threads most times. But PM’s too. I too have made a handful of what I consider friends now through TB. Some I speak to on occasion, some I talk to almost every day via text. A couple I even hand with on occasion and we jam out on new gear or just hang and chat. So yeah, for me, TB is def a community. I’ve learned a great deal from this forum. In many ways. It’s given me a lot of confidence to work on my own basses and do my own setups and mods. I LOVE doing stuff like this. These days especially. I’m always messing with one or two of my basses. I learned a lot about myself too seeing how I post sometimes haha I can be a little a$$hat at times. But I feel like I’ve learned a little from that. I used to be really active on here and make a ton of threads and post in the Effects forum a ton. I’m still on every day just not quite as invested as I used to be. But I still love TB warts and all. It’s one of the best, among the limited few, bass forums we can come to to talk about all things bass and be understood in that medium. It’s great. So yeah, I love this community and I def feel like it’s a community and a place us bassists can all come and learn and share and grow from. It’s awesome really.
