    I see this link at the bottom of the TalkBass forum and I'm interested in joining it, but it brings me to a Forbidden Error 403. Is anyone else having this problem?
  2. Looks like the site is down? idk, it was never popular.

    I tried registering there a couple of weeks ago, and never got the confirmation email. I even tried the "resend confirmation email" several times, but it never came through. Yes, I checked all my folders :p.

    I think there were some new posts there on a somewhat regular basis... but very, very slow for sure. I would think Paul would understand that it can take a long time for a forum to spin up into something the size of TB.

    I was able to register there 2 weeks ago. You occasionally see a TBer but that's it.

    I can sum up what's going on over there in a few words... "me, me, me" :D

    Just kidding. Sort of. No really, just kidding.

    The site blew a speaker go figure

    A bass hacker took over the site and and encrypted the password in sheet music. It's done for, go figure.

    The site couldn't hold a rhythm and it went under, go figure.

    The site needed some supporting mods...Everyone wanted to be lead mod now it's over, go figure.

    I post there. There are 3-4 occasional posters, so the traffic is usually nothing for a few weeks, then 4-5 posts, then it goes dark again. It's too bad though, because I bet most of us don't just play bass.

    Bass is the key to human survival. Without the promise of bass, we never would have given up our tails and come down out of trees. Without bass, crops wouldn't grow, it wouldn't rain, and the sun wouldn't come up. Without bass, there would be no love, beauty, or truth.

    What was that other website about again?
