I'm not convinced to be honest... the real Mrs C has a limited knowledge of bass guitar related issues and would be mostly posting Marxist propaganda in OT...

Well I do that, of course, Sweetie... as for the bass guitar issues, iCastle types all that in, while I nibble his toes... hee, hee, hee!

Nice. Congratulations BassChat!

Do you have numbers on how many of them are active?

At a guess, about 30.

Well done to all. I remember when we shifted from BassWorld to Basschat and I was on holiday at the time without internet access and was really disappointed to come back a days after the switch and get a really high membership number of #266, and felt that the forum had been overrun by the masses. I think I was #66 on Bassworld. Here's to the next 30,000.

That's interesting, because BC used to have membership numbers listed along with post count, etc.

The very next day after posting this I got busted by the Met for doing 75 in a 50 limit. Ouch! Karma?

Probably a hard core of two or three hundred regular contributors, plus about ten times that who lurk, I'm guessing. If thousands upon thousands of members contributed regularly it would be like Talkbass which is chaotic and unwieldy, in my humble opinion!

^ This. I find that Talkbass has some really interesting stuff on it but it moves so quickly that its very, very easy to miss things.
