Is it just my computer, or have the Les Paul and SG forums been merged together in the Gibson USA forum?

Yep, some tweaks are being made, all of the USA and Custom sub-forums have been merged under the main headings.

I can only imagine that some of the sub forums arnt that busy.. I guess by merging them the posts that don't get many answers may get some more?

Like last night I spoke to someone on the Gibson Gear page.. I doubt he will get any other responses now his thread is not on the home page any more.

I just went to open one of my bookmarked pages, which was originally the archtops forum. I think the name was changed several years ago to the ES forum or something simiilar. Anyway, it appears to be gone now. Were all of those threads deleted, or moved...?

I think they are all just merged into the USA soup

Well, here's one example of a thread that used to be located in the Archtops forum (or ES, or whatever they had changed the name to several years ago), which is now located in the "Gibson Custom" forum (not the USA forum): http://forum.gibson....d-neck-profile/

That thread probably belongs in the Vintage forum (and maybe could have been posted there originally), but moving it to "Custom"?

Another example: http://forum.gibson...._1#entry1892143

A thread about a 1936 ES-150, posted under the Archtops/ES heading, now located under "Gibson Custom".

I had to get down on the Gibson USA list to locate a Bass thread. But then again, it's never to busy there. :rolleyes:

As a general rule I dislike being negative in life but the newly re-(dis?)organised Gibson USA sub-forum is so cluttered up with stuff of absolutely no interest to me whatsoever - and those subjects that are of interest are now so randomly dispersed throughout the first few pages - that I think I will pretty much quit visiting that place altogether as of now.

Not a change for the better (IMO). The Polar opposite, actually.

I see some have already voiced their concerns and displeasure over the ensuing mess these changes have incurred.
And if I - and others who might share the same viewpoint as me - stop visiting that place then the outlook for the forum as an ongoing entity isn't looking too rosy.

Pip.

Just big sections are back

Needs more refinement if he than a big pot

But maybe they figure some sections of the forum are hardly used

I'd rather they hadn't done that, life's to0 short to go searching through things of no interest to me. It's funny how most people don't like change..............until they get used to it [smile]

This is what happens when a person with no knowledge whatsoever about information architecture, UGC habits or user interaction starts making decisions about a forum.

They somehow convince themselves that it matters when a sub-forum is quiet so they combine it with another, or four more, ruin them all and centralise activity in the lounge even more.

Looks like the wasted The Marketplace, too.

I went to look for a specific guitar yesterday and the whole section is gone. SAD! LOSING BIGLY! as they would tweet in DC.
