    I'm sure this has been done before.

    But I'm going to do it again just because I don't like you


    :D

    and people may have changed their habits.



    So, let me get to the point.

    Ah, here it is.....



    When you hop onto talkbass, which forum do you hit first? what's your default?

    For me, it's AMPS.

    And what's sad. I haven't even seen 75% of the stuff that is talked about in there in person. I've never seen an eden.... I've seen two Ampegs(an svt-III pro and their 100w tube head). I could go on for a while, but I won't.

    It's pure madness.

    So, what do you hit up first?
     
  2. I go down the line, Basses, Amps, Miscellaneous, Off Topic, then the Lounge.

    I open two, a basses and an OT. Whichever is less interesting I then move to misc., and then to humor. What comes after that depends on my mood.

    Recordings, Bassists, Technique, Misc, OT, Lounge, TPA.

    I skip the basses forum, trying to avoid gas.
     
  6. I go through amps, OT, Misc, sometimes humor and management, then off to the politic..... ummmm TPA. (Whew, almost brought... you know.... into the thread. No sense getting this shipped off to TPA...)

  7. I normally open OT first, and work my way up.

    I usually open through the notification email, then
    do that forum. Usually amps or OT. Then cruise over to
    Misc. Occasionally Humor, Technique.
    Hardly ever The Lounge.

    And Never TPA, as talking politics with bassplayers is
    the lowest form of human intellectual activity.
     
  9. I pretty much steer clear of there as well. Too many arguments tend to happen.

    OT..... because JMX is the mod and the avatar hypnotizes me.

    Classifieds... :rollno: GAS

    Then I usually go to Amps, unless something on the forums home page grabs my attention first.

    Down the list of subscribed threads, then "New Threads". I work my way down the list, right-click "T" any thread I want to read, and then go back and read all the threads I've opened up. (Firefox w00t)

    Then I'll browse Basses to see if I missed anything interesting. Amps if I'm bored.

    I try to stay out of TPA and the Lounge but I keep going back for some reason. :meh:
     
  16. NO THERE AREN'T!
    I spend a lot of time in TPA, so I should know...

  17. I just sift through 'new posts' & if I don't find anything interesting, I look for threads w/me in 'em to see if anyone called me a dork(literally or figuratively)after I logged out. :D
