    how come on the Miscellaneous Forum page it says Big Wheel started this thread...but then when you click on it, it says it was created by Blackbird?

    :confused:

    Blackbird used to be Big Wheel. When a member changes names, the Forum software still shows threads created under the old name on the forum pages. But when you open a thread, it shows the new username. Software bug.

    why is it suprising?

    it's got a lot of good info in it and it's a sticky, not going anywhere ;)

    Hi,

    I'm new here. One of the reasons I decided to join this forum is because, despite playing bass for almost 40 years, I have not kept up with changes in gear and technology: I'm here to catch up with the 21st century. After reading through this entire thread, I have a question:

    Is there a glossary somewhere here on TB (I sure haven't been able to find one using the search function) that spells out what commonly-used abbreviations stand for?

    It seems a great many posters use abbreviations to identify makes and models of gear as though only a complete moron wouldn't know exactly what they mean; I understand how easy it is to use "insider's language" as a kind of shorthand expression - it's a great time saving device - BUT it's a very exclusionary practice.


    Thanks in advance :confused:

    That's how GM posted it. I just quoted it.

    It must have seemed a good idea at the time. :D

  17. If I receive emails labelled "Read This", they are normally considered as spam and deleted without reading. I would also avoid any similarly labelled thread topics.
     
  18. Shouldn't this be, like, a sticky thread in every single forum and subforum of this site? :bag:

    It would greatly help us newbies, ya know...
