Where'd everybody go?

Nothin' to do with blues? The name says it all. You might try e-mail or Personal Message, but if those don't work for you, put it here, not in the blues forums above. Thanks!

Where'd everybody go?

Postby NEONMOONY » Mon Apr 28, 2014 1:02 pm

Man, this place as really slowed down. This used to be a small but relatively busy board. Now it's kind of a ghost town. I gotta admit, I started going to other forums and I would check in daily and not really comment. Then, I didn't check in as often. Got a new computer and it fell of may regular sites. I started checking back in a while back and was surprised at the difference. Some old timers had stopped posting before I slowed down but I saw what seemed like plenty new ones coming on board. Just wondering, are folks checking and not posting or has everyone moved on?

I haven't got an answer, except I got nothing but silence whenever I posted about my current projects, recordings and guitar building.
Maybe Blues is no longer interesting to our former contributors?

May be. Well, at least I know SOMEBODY is checking in. Blues is still a big part of what I do. This used to be a real good info site.

Nice job on the recordings. You've got some funny pics there on your facespace.

Man, I've been looking at this forum since 2001 y'know? I like checking in from time to time but all the people I know are gone and what conversation is happening ain't really happening too much.

The way we use the internet seems to have changed, messageboards aren't as much of a thing. But I'll still check in here. It was the first internet community where I was welcomed and I'll never forget that.

Yeah it is mighty slow here, and even blindmans with its thousands is kind of slow at times.

I think that facebook must be where people are spending more of their online time.

Me I hate facebook, every time I go there I get flustrated and have not the patience to slog thru. I only go to fb maybe once a month and then only for a few minutes.

I like message boards better, you got a group with a common interest and don't have to wade thru miles of muck to come across something of interest, whereas on facebook you get the whole world talking every conceivable type of drivel all mixed in with what may be of interest.
Probably I messed up my facebook by accumulating hundreds of 'friends' whom I don't even know just because they were the friend of a friend with some connection to blues music. At the risk of seeming cold hearted, Who cares if your pet frog has a sore throat, or what did you eat for lunch yesterday?

Well this place seems to have picked up a bit this month. At least 4 new things?

Hey Jellyroll.
Aren't you a radio disk jockey or some such?
Good to hear from you.

Facebook is mostly pictures of someone's dog or their religious/political views.

Hey Les, where you at in Chicago? I'm actually close, outside in Indiana but I work up there and go there often.

I've been gone a long time though I've been pretty active in another blues forum (started there long ago -- nearly 10 years -- when BRB was put on ice temporarily by hackers). Just got a new Chromebook today and have been surfing around and "The Google" offered BRB as a choice as I started the search for the other site so I could bookmark it. I thought it would be good to stop by the Big Road and say howdy...and I could still remember my password!

Things have slowed down on the other forum as well, though there is a hardcore hanging on. No answers here -- still like and play blues, though it is one type of music in a broad spectrum that I listen to.

Howdy to any of the old timers who remember me.

Lack of moderation of spammers and guys schilling there sheeit is what drove me away.

I'd very much like to be back here if the situation can be rectified.

I'm surprised this forum is still up and running.

I love it!!

Could there be hope yet?

Have mercy!

Yep. This used to be a good one,

It seems the good forums have left along with the good gigs. But we could bring it back

Just need the guys who still have a real interest in blues. And not just " do u have tab for....?"

Hell yeah!

Bring it back.

More posting will do that too.

And I don't need no stinkin' tab to learn how to play.

Muddy didn't have any tab.
