hey paul i've gotten contacted by a quite a few folks who were interested in attending the atlanta gtg this past weekend but who were unaware it was even going on. now that the gtg's are in their own forum, off the beaten path, so to speak, it's all that more unlikely that folks are going to see the postings about them. do you think you could put some kind of scrolling banner with gtg info across the top of the pages? even just a list of current/upcoming gtg's that's printed across the top between the forums breadcrumbs and the membership info on the right, above the "my talkbass/ rules/faq/cup" bar. a gtg isn't something that folks are going to be necessarily looking for out of the blue, so only having the announcements for one nestled away in their own forum outside the main ones is going to defeat the purpose, i think.
