Discussion/comments from this article:

http://blog.basschat...-basschat-blog/

As you can see, the blog is working!! We still have a couple of things to do and tidy up but go ahead and have a look. We have an exciting set of regular articles going live over the next few weeks plus there will be a chance for you all to get involved in the non too distant future.

Keep an eye out - soon there will be a 'new blog posts' box on the right of the forum (above the Facebook block) which will alert you to new articles.

Looking forward to any comments - each post will have a thread like this attached to it so you can comment on the blog post itself, or you can comment directly under the post using the Facebook comments box, if you use Facebook that is. We did look at integrating your login for BC into the blog to allow comments but that method is fraught with danger so making threads linked to the articles was the way to go!

Cheers

BC team

Well done chaps, and thanks for the hard work. :)

Any chance you could up the font size a little or use black though? It's a bit difficult to read at the moment.

Looking great :)

Entered competition too, usually get swing bass strings but I went for PSD's as experimenting can be pricey!

Hi mate

I can't actually see any way of changing the font size at the moment but I'll find out for you. In the meantime press Ctrl+ the '+= key to zoom in
