    Hard to believe! Thanks to the incredible community of bass players that have made TalkBass what it is, we turned 20 years old this year. It doesn't feel like 20 years since I started this thing up in my dorm room :jawdrop:. Probably because it's just a joy to run this site. 21 million posts since 1998 is incredible. We should plan a TalkBass 20th year convention! Haha!
     
  2. That is amazing!

    Thank you, and all the dedicated people who have kept this place alive.

    That's awesome, I never took time to consider that TB has been around for so long even though I've read some old threads. Happy Birthday!

    Paul, I think you should let us use that cool little 'Featured' tag on our threads.
    I talk about some cool stuff in OT....like hockey, Friday, and Taco Bell for example.

  16. Happy Birthday, Talkbass! :thumbsup:

    And thank you, Paul for starting Talkbass.

    This is the best site on the net, but then, I'm biased.

    I also have a lot less money because of this site! :roflmao:

    And to think, I've been here 17 years.

    Congrats and Happy Birthday TB.
    If you decide to have a party please have it in New York (or Texas or Connecticut). Anywhere but California!

    Thanks, Paul and Happy Birthday, TalkBass! I've only been on the forum a little over a year, but I can say with surety my bank account has lost some weight, after signing on to TB... I'm thinking the wife isn't thanking you, right about now...

    (Keep up the good work!)
