So i think i figured out why people always ask for help picking a bass in this thread, and skip over some of the sticky topics. Most forums have a "General Discussion" or a "New Guy" Forum before anything else. This trap stops all the new people from going through other forums like a bull through a china shop. I think this is merely because it is the first forum you can click on. If this board had a "General Discussion" or even a "Im New and I want to buy a bass" forum above basses, all of the people would go there to ask their questions on new stuff. its really a matter of how people work. OMG I POSTED A NON BASS POST IN THE BASSES FORUM.
