    Agreed. My writing style can be a bit "brash". I have ever gone back to earlier posts and though that I may have come across as mean or angry. Nothing could be further from the truth in most cases. Learning that about myself has taught me to allow others such leeway as well.

    You're not even close to the correct forum :roflmao:

    Go to the 'basses' forum, and there should be a blue button that says "create new thread" or something similar. Good luck!

    I read all 5 pages. Still my first thought about how to get the most out of TB, is to use Google for searching the forum.

    Make sure a thread you're posting into is not a "Zombie" thread that probably was resolved years ago.

    Yeah, I know...

    I am guilty of reviving a Zombie thread.
    I was a newbie, thrashing about.
    Many of our brethren ‘explained’ my shortcoming.
     
  7. I would suggest too, that sarcasm doesn’t translate well in print unless you write very well or the reader already knows your views. I’ve been caught out by this and I’m not the only one who’s been busted.

    I think it's worthwhile that @Stumbo has quite a nice collection of information for noobs. He's also one of the nicest helpful guys on TB and is always helpful to the new guys.

    EDIT: Isn't it funny that I was giving Stumbo accolades and his post comes up right before mine.... synchronicity in the universe.... :)

    Bassists tend to be nice people.

    If you disagree with me you’re wrong.
