Should we get rid of the "getting the most out of Talkbass" thread?

  1. Yes! May it stay there forever, so that newbies will wonder who this "Big Wheel" guy is

    Does it help anyone? Do any new people check it?

    Just wondering.
     
  2. I guess I'll go first.

    I'd say get rid of it.

    Although it is masterfully written by one of my favorite authors. :D

    It's been there since November 2000. Sometimes the longer you look at something, the more you don't see it.

    As for the newbies checking it out - :confused:

    I really don't think they do, or at least it doesn't sink in. You advise them: don't type in all caps, use the search function, but, it seems that other members have to remind them to do these things.

    AHA! I just thought of this right now; why not delete it, and just re-enter it with a different title?
    This way it's sure to be read. :)

    Perhaps? Maybe?

    Just my $.02

    Jason Carota is the not-so scientific birth-name given to me. :)

    I dunno about wether or not new people read it, but when I was new, I read it. I also read the FAQ. That is probably why I didn't post a hello thread in the basses forum, which seems to be a common occurance.
