    There are so many of these cluttering up the "Basses" section of the electric bass forum. I think it would really help to order things by having a separate forum for eye candy.

    If you don't like the picture threads, why don't you just not open them?

    No no no, I like them, it's just there's so many of them with so many criteria that having their own subforum kind of makes sense.
  4. so then what do we post in the basses section?

    Not all threads in the basses section are devoted to bass pics . . .

    Forget it. Someone delete this thread. Didn't know there would be hostility toward a simple idea.
  6. no dude i totally wasnt trying to come off as hostile and im sorry i did i just dont think there would be enough traffic to warrent two forums

    Really? I think of TB as ridiculously high traffic. Guess that comes from only going to really tiny forums.

    Ah well. Here's to an idea poorly hatched.

    Cluck cluck...

    Lookit that beautiful shiny egg. Very nicely hatched.


    Well guys, it looks like we're all in this together!

    Personally, I thought it was a good idea but it might be a tad difficult to implement at this point without losing everything we have already.

    Having the thread stickied is a good thing but it sure would be great if everything was cataloged. You know, had some order to it so we could go directly to a specific brand or model or etc., etc.

    It's a great idea but how could it be done?

    Any ideas?

    Hey, man, I intended no hostility. I was genuinely curious as to why they bothered you.

    They don't bother me at all. I rather like them. It's just that there's a whole lot of those threads, and without being catalogued or at least stuck in their own little space, it seems rather chaotic to have them floating around in the "Basses" section. I just think a new "Eye Candy" section would make it a lot easier to find exactly the GAS you want.

    That said, I'm insanely OCD. I have to wash my hands almost every 1-2 hours, or else I get edgy.
