New rule in effect as of 9/5/01

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by jrthebassguy, Nov 5, 2001.


  1. Ok...I've been letting people get away with this for some time now, and this is really starting to get on my nerves.

    I counted on this page on threads about distortion....

    I want you to guess how many threads about distortion/overdrive/fuzz whatever....really...guess...


    Not one.....not two....not three....but eight


    This is my eyes is wayyyyyy too many.

    Seriously folks, can we lighten up on the distortion threads?

    New rule: Unless your question hasnt been answered, only 1 thread about distortion/overdrive/fuzz whatever per page

    I will delete any thread i see that is breaking this rule.


    You have been warned



    EDIT: i accidently typed in 9/5/01 when its really november, silly me

    This thread will only stay current for a month tops. Then someone will ask a question and get jumped on for breaking a rule they didnt know existed.

    OK thats the negative aspect. So on a positive note why not rip off JT's FAQ idea?

    You could get Paul to float it on the top of the Forum and update it. Any updates and indeed initial content could be done by a few people. It doesnt have to be long but cover the basic 'gain' pedals, envelope pedals and the difference between chorus, verse and middle 8 pedals.

    I might have missed something but this is a long term solution.

    If you disagree just ignore me.I will go away and I dont frequent the Effects Forum much.

    I understand your moderating burden must be overwhelming, Jake, when you're taking such drastic measures. ;)

    I'd get rid of them all - everybody knows that real bass players don't use effects! That would save your workload and stop you getting stressed! :D

  20. Ah! talking of things which are getting on MY nerves... pos(t)ers who have interminably l-o-n-g s-i-g-n-a-t-u-r-e-s which go on-and-on-and-on-and-on-and-on...ad nauseam!

    Brevity being the soul of wit, I find it somewhat tedious - but then, according to your profile, you're only 14, so I suppose you have an excuse...
