I'd have to agree with this. The level of posts and participants in the HC Recording Forum has really taken a dive in the past year or so. Very few real conversations, and lots of post about the best monitors for $300. Lots of noise and very little signal over there.

And what's with all those stickies?

Well, HC has a bit of a "wild west" rep with some people, but there hasn't been a lot of direction and support for them in the past little bit, and they've had to deal with a lot of public uncertainty too.

I'm willing to give everyone a chance, and hope all of you who decide to visit will do likewise. \:\) After all, we want them to be willing to give all of US a chance too, right? ;\)

But I wouldn't worry about it TOO much. Do you really think a forum I would be involved with is going to be a chaotic mess, or a rudefest? ;\) I'm not about to ditch respect and civility, and my position is still the same as it always has been here - eveyone disagree all you want, but play nice and don't resort to personal / ad hominem attacks.

I think the recording forum has some interesting topics going on it, and we can always post others. I'm looking forward to making new friends and hearing new opinions and perspectives. IOW, I think it's going to be cool and a lot of fun.

The tone and members at http://www.studioforums.com are similar to this forum. We have mostly mid-level and advanced folks who have their own private project studios.

Conversations tend to be good and informative, and the forums are moderated and kept on track. All are welcome to pop over there, too. I run the joint.

We've never had a "What's the best mic for $100" topic yet. : )

Not to pee on Dot's leg, but his place is a friendly place to hang out, with LOTS of differing viewpoints, all presented in a manner that does not given readers its a "you suck" contest" (a welcome respite to current internet discussion trends)...

There are Grammy winners/nominees there...there are guys just starting out...there are world class gear makers...there are guys from all walks of life...and there seems to be a certain level of respect for each other sorely lacking in most other places...and here's the catch: the 'usual suspects' at StudioForums have not only intellect, but a sense of humor as well...

Either way it works out for all of you, I wish for only success for the upcoming changes...

I've surely enjoyed this cozy Project Studio Forum since it first began. I fear that the cozy aspect will leave with the new HC location and it will become a glut like the SSS has - not my style. I really enjoyed seeing the same names in many threads and getting to know people a bit. This was the most controlled forum, IMO, and it will be sorely missed here.

Don't be surprised if it stays within reasonable noise levels over there too Matt. We'll have the same great mods there as here to help keep the noise levels to a minimum. There are some nice forums over there with a decent clientele. It looks to me like the idiots pretty much stay away from those.

Cool, I had already registered over there a while ago. Like almost 2 years ago. Just need my avatar and I'm in business as here... I wish we could port over our current post count so people can see that we're already part of a happening vibe... Sorta like "MP posts"??? Or some link to our little backyard parties we've had over here!.
Anywho, I'm game for a new vibe... Nothing wrong here but hey cool to have change too!.
Later
Brian

Brian, I doubt the post count transfer is going to happen... but if you wanted to, I suppose you could put that information in your sig line over on HC. ;\) And remember, with the exception of SSS, these forums are not going away. For example The Project Studio forum will continue, sans my name and under new "management". \:\) So your post count over here will remain in effect AFAIK.

The Weasel® who knows all™ is correct. The "preview / announcement" forums should be up sometime today, and they go "active" effective Monday.

http://acapella.harmony-central.com/forums/index.php?s=

I hope you'll drop in from time to time Bill. It's always a pleasure reading your posts.

I passed the word that I wouldn't mind that a bit, but IMO, I don't deserve the title as much as dB does.

Anyway, it's really up to the new moderators and the CMP staff. But either way, I'll still be around on these forums. My EQ writing will hopefully continue, and since EQ is going to tie into the forums a bit more in the future, I'd obviously want to be able to respond to any article / review related questions anyone has. And while I can't announce who the new moderators are going to be yet (I'm still not certain about CMP taking my recommendation, but it's looking promising ), but if it's who I think / hope it's going to be, I definitely need to come by once in a while to just to knock 'm around too. :p ;\) \:D

But whether it says "Moderator Emeritus" or "MP Hall of Fame Member" under my screen name, I'll still be around - just not as an active duty moderator. \:\)

All makes sense, Phil.

Thanks for the work you've done and thanks to CMP for hosting the forum for this time.


Each new BB/forum has its own personality, or rather mix of personalities, or admix... or something. But, anyhow, to paraphrase someone or other about life, I think it was... why sweat it? It's just a bulletin board. I'm sure we'll all fit in fine there, or we won't. But life will go on.

Anyhow, again, thanks to you and the other mods for your seemingly tireless efforts, here, and we'll see you at the new place.
