other forums not as good

just wanted to say that of the few other forums i visit....for photography, video, film, they are boring! everyone is so sterile when it comes to their miscellaneous off-topic area. i don't need to say that jemsite has the best visitors. it's so much more colorul and family-oriented.

Yup, I find the other forums too dis-organised, and too many complete plonkers there too.

That's a valid point Steve, must be something about guitarists...

Re: other forums not as good

There are a lot of good boards out there. What makes a good board is having people who care enough to contribute, and a sense of community. We've got a lot of both here.

Re: other forums not as good

Yeah I hate those forums where it just seems like a free for all of blasting each other, rather than constuctive conversation(or even just plain silly) like you see here.

Re: other forums not as good

This is probably the best forum I've seen, and the community is great. "Jemsite: come for the info, stay for the people"


...or something to that effect

Maybe if the Ibanez forum was available in neon colors it would be better

Re: other forums not as good

lol.

yeah, never a dull moment here.

plus the people are rarely hostile and get into those flaming threads, which are quickly swept away to prevent anything nasty. very welcoming evironment. it's like a third home to me, (my second home is katrina's house, and ofcourse first is my house.)
