dudepit?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by mike_odonovan, Apr 19, 2002.


  1. what is the dudepit? it sounds a bit like a club that has like victor wooten on the door and doesn't let you in if you haven't got the required slap chops together. ;)

    1) This post belongs in MISC, not AMPS!

    2) The Dudpit is similar to TalkBass, but has less content and lacks good moderators IMHO.

    Sometimes the answer is too obvious, O-man;)

    This is just plain wrong. The Dudepit has infinitely less flame-ups than TB (although many fewer members...which is a good thing). I find it's usually populated by older, more experienced players than TB. I like both for different reasons, and visit both many times daily.

    I visit the Pit once a day but I lurk more over there as of late!
    I participate over here on a much higher level.

    One thing I like about the Pit is the all Fretless section. I hang there more than the other sections. I spend about equal time on Pit/TB. I don't agree with the Mod statement. They're good guys.

    So that's why you go there:eek:
     
  12. Agree with the above posts:

    fewer members, much lower flame level, less political discussion.

    sometimes less entertaining though.

    Often I use it as a "chaser" to the discussions on this board :D

    I lurk around the G&L area of the site, but spend most of my time here for bass talk. I would say it's a 95/5 split in favor of TB for me.
     
  17. Less maybe, but those old boys sure as heck don't like to be contradicted. A good of a resource as any but....there are certain seriously confrontational types that (IMO!) are opinionated, self-righteous and with conversational skills that would make Dann Glenn and Jeff Berlin seem like Santa. Moderators can be very good. Majority of the folks seem very supportive and open.....

    I agree. the general tone of the dudepit makes TalkBass seem like Palookaville. Then again, their numbers are not quite as up there as ours.

    I'd hang around the dudepit more, except that I get enough ya-ya's dealing with the no-no's at TalkBass. Well, not really.

    Oh, and I think they get moderated just fine.
