Yeah. Sure. smirk

Just went there but didn't see anywhere to register. I don't recall ever registering there, and it's administrator board was disabled.

Let's just hope we can stay together on this forum under the new management. The ProBoards that DBM mentions above was set up just in case this one should ever go down. I hope many out there will sign on to it even if they don't post, as we will have a place to contact each other if needed. I have never been on Facebook and probably won't go there... cool

I know I asked this before-I updated my login at TSN, then took another long hiatus. Sorry to ask again, if you have any username/password info for me, could you maybe PM me, or send it to skipt@hotmail.com? Thanks a bunch.

Try it now. The table for registration was crashed (had a server restart last night because of the storm). You should be good to go!

The Stringnetwork is a forum and, while we DO have a Facebook presence, the forums are just like here. The forum has been quiet lately but it has been running for 10 years now. (Actually ten years exactly on Jun 6th). A lot of Guitar Player members are either over there now or at least already have an account.

Thanks AString! I knew that the Stringnetwork is a forum separate from Facebook, of which I have avoided since FB's inception LOL! I will be sure to take a look at TSN if this forum goes down. The ProBoards forum does not get a lot of use (only about 5 of us posting on it). But, it does give us a partial listing of guys/gals that have signed on from the GP forum should future contacts become needed.

For sure guys. No one has to drop where they are. Just a good idea to have a few points of contact should things go down here!

I used to use a gmail address for registering, but Gmail has started using 2 factor authentication and of course, a forum isn't able to do that. For now, I authenticate manually. so, you have been added and are good to go!

W/all due respect to Craig's TSN forum, which I've been visiting for yrs & has some excellent cotributers, I must point out that the preeminent music site on the Net is harmonycentral.com, whence our once stalwart Craig Anderson fled w/ his SSS forum, when he quit here.

It's even more active than MPlayer once was 20 yrs back, w/a huge number of instrument-specific & production forums.

...but to reiterate...

I've been on several forums (fora?) over the years. Today, everyone has fled to Facebook

Yeah, most of the String Network's activity has moved over to it's Facebook page. Not unlike the way forums took over BBS's, many years back, Facebook is now slowly replacing Forums. To be honest, Twitter has been replacing Facebook, in the past few years, and a lot of the buzz is that Facebook will soon go the way of MySpace, in the next few years. But, I digress. Truth is, forums are probably on their last legs, only really good for support sites etc.

I agree. Facebook gets a lot of comments but no real threads I'd a single subject (except political). With the latest skinny on how FB has allowed data mining of our personal info, I'm trying to withdraw.

Oh well, I will just keep on posting on the forums as long as there are a few others joining in.

I prefer any alternative to Facebook. I go there because of friends and family. I do prefer this forum and the ones we created over Facebook any time. If it weren't for family, and old friends whom I have reconnected with since as long ago as my high school years, I would quit Facebook in a minute. I'll hang in here for as long as I can, and I hope most of the regulars will also.

Plus, even before the recent scandals, FB has some severe intellectual property issues.
Did ya ever actually read what they "own" EVERYTHING YOU POST---pix, vids, music, they claim full control & use of.
