Where do you go first?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by The Antipop, May 4, 2005.


  1. When you come to TB, what forums do you go to first?

    I tend to go to For Sale, then basses (to get my GAS going) then OT or misc... unless I have a post I have tabs on, then I go there first.

    Anyone else have a pattern?

    Yes! I usually check General Instruction and Technique first, to see if there's anything in there to help me (beginner here!)

    Then I usually lurk about in off topic :)

    Sometimes I'll have a browse through Basses just to get jealous!

    Am I the only one that just hits "View new posts" everytime they come here? That way, you see everything at once!

    I do that too (Quick Links - New Posts).
     
  6. OT
    Misc

    Then I'll look at the last post listed and see if it's something that either interests me or if it's something I might be able to add something to.

    Setup
    Bassists
    Recordings
    Amps
    and Basses is the last stop.

    Well, usually I go
    Basses
    Amps
    P-ups
    OT

    Now that i'm about to build a bass, I go
    Basses
    P-ups
    Setup
    Luthier's Corner
    OT.

    Those coming to OT first and foremost should start wasting bandwidth at other forums :p

    I view new posts too. I only go to a specific forum if I am researching something, like an amp.

    Yup.

    Although, having been playing for only a month, I'm not really at the stage where I can go into, say, 'Pickups' and offer any real advice!

    So I'll just hang around OT making pointless posts until I can contribute something useful.

    Margaritas, dancing women in bikinis, cash prizes, free basses and amps, .... Oh man, I could go on forever.

    There are forums to clarify and discuss policy. It helps us communicate with one another so that we may better act as one united voice.

    I start at Basses and go from top to bottom, excluding the ones I generally don't visit (effects, setup, tablature).

    The only time I don't do that is if I'm in a hurry and only have time to check a thread I've been following.

    I basically work my way up or down. For Sale to Basses, or vice versa.
