    Hi All,

    I don't know if this question was ever put forth, but I couldn't think of a good way to search in order to check it out.

    I was just wondering, when you all log on to TB, which forum do you check out first?

    For me, it would have to be 'Basses' and 'Amps' in no particular order, then I mosey on down the list. I visit those forums equally, so I've allowed for multiple choice.

    I excluded the 'Ask a Pro' and 'Buyer/Seller' forums from the selections, as I figure they are utilized on a more periodic basis than the rest.

    Apologies also to our friends in the DB area. I'm mainly a BG dweller, and couldn't really incorporate DB topics without the list getting longer than it is already. :confused:
     
  2. either basses or off topic. i go down or up the list, depending on what mood i'm in.

    I always check the classifieds first. Of the Forums you listed, I go to Miscellaneous first, so I can do my Moderation duties. Then I start a Basses and work my way down.

    If I am pressed for time, sometimes I will just hit Misc and Basses, if I have a little more, I'll try to work in OT.

    I go to bassists first and do mod duties there, then strings, for more mod duties, then if i have time I go to general instruction, then if time permits i go to DB side of the house to see what I might be able to learn from reading over there.
