I guess the title says it all (well not literally), but the point of this thread is for people to discuss and to offer thoughts on whether the main forums should be further separated into sub-forums. It appears as if there is going to be separate forums for Extended Range Basses (ERB's to you noobs!) and Electric Upright Basses (EUBS). There is already separate forums in the Lounge for pollitical threads and non-pollitcal threads. Whenever I think about separate sub-forums for "classes" of bass player, my mind immediately looks up to the top right hand corner and see's "Uniting the Low End Since 1998", and imagines a footnote saying "unless you play an ERB or EUB" But seriously, what do people think? It appears that the main reason these sub-forums are being created is so that their users can discuss things without fear of criticism or negative oppinions. But then, why not have a separate Wishbass of Dave Pushic forum, which get bashed far more than ERB's or EUBs. Likewise, why not have separate forums in Amps for Tube Amps and Solid State Amps? or in Off-topic for Teen Chat (or something similar). Segragation of bass players, a good thing or a bad thing?
