As Ian said no-one likes change, and I agree with Pip.

I used to check the Lounge, then LP section, then Custom and lastly Archtop as I own guitars in those categories. I liked to see new guitars similar to mine, and learn about new models and occasionally help someone else with a question that I knew the answer to. I never owned a Firebird or a V so didn't have too much interest in them, and could offer no advice. Similarly it has been a long time since I had an SG so I would usually skip that section.

Now, as mentioned, I would need to sift through a lot of posts that don't interest me to perhaps find one that does. Like Steve said I went to look for a specific guitar someone said they would put in Trading Post/Marketplace, and the entire category was gone. [thumbdn]

I did notice over the past few months that there were few new posts in the Custom and Archtop sections, but I don't see any advantage or cost saving in combining them all together??

We'll see how it goes. [confused]

2007 Taylor Solid Body Custom (Sapele/Walnut)
2010 Fender Telecaster (Ash)

Maybe they can put it back to the way it was.
I like to check for Firebird posts but I'm not going to wade through all of the SG and Les Paul stuff to see if there are any there.
Nothing against SGs or Les Pauls, by the way, it's just that they'll swamp everything else due to their popularity.

Really have to agree. I go in for the basses. It's bad enough a Gibson Bass is looked upon as a company's inferior instrument. But then bury it away in where ever it winds up.

With respect....they wouldn't have changed it if they were going to do that.

Changes I've noticed so far:

- "All Access" is the group beneath your avatar. But.....

- NO access to Gibson/Epiphone Lounges without signing in. Protected Forum.

- 'Sub-forums' merged.

- 'Trading Post' deleted.

- Any/all posts which might be considered offensive, controversial, political etc get deleted and thread locked/removed. Not such a change there then.

- Notice too the 'DELETE' button so you can remove your own posts from view - you are asked for a reason why, and mods can still see it.

Happy Xmas everybody BTW.

As Sparq might say....ok, I'm gonna shut up now.

Oh great. Now we have a Chinese made fake Gibson forum. Loved the subcategories. Hate the lack thereof. It's pretty bad.

As a judge once declared when he looked over my driving record, "Bysmal, just bysmal!"

It was all I could do to keep out from blurting out "A-bysmal or Pepto-Bysmal"?

Looks like our well voiced points have and will continue to fall on deaf ears. How much money do you think is or was saved by doing this forum reorganization? It has to be a money thing otherwise they wouldn't have touched it. Before the changes regardless of traffic and usage in the individual sub forums, everything was separated,organized and discover able for a user looking for information or to contribute. Even slow sections that weren't getting the usage most likely had the biggest and most informative/ sought after threads sitting at the top easily found and accessible for a new member or users troubleshooting ...
