We aren't taking out all the fun of being here and interrelationships. That is why everyone has moved over here and IMHO is why they will stay over here. This Forum then, as a result, will soon be the largest and best Technics Forum on the net, if in fact it isn't already.
The "other" Technic's forums will probably end up populated by only "techies" and those just starting to develop their learning curve. There is a need for that. They will benefit each other. There is also a need for social interaction and relationships by those that are already comfortable in their technical and intellectual levels that aid in the interchange of ideas and techniques. The only need for separation of these groups is in individual attitudes by those who would control these groups. Some will be much happier in one group then the other. This forum is for Technical, Social and Information Sharing relationships. Technicians are certainly welcome and needed here but not to the exclusion of fellowship and social interaction. Those of us that are here and staying here are happy here so let us continue to be. Each Forum will attract their own players through fulfilling their individual needs. Please continue to invite your friends and contacts to check out all Technic's Forums and I believe most, although not all will choose ours. When they do, please make them welcome rather then uncomfortable through dissension.
It is my intention to send out an e-mail "NEWSLETTER" to everyone on my email list. I have in fact already sent out 3 or 4. If you have not received them send me your email address and I will add you. If you are receiving them and don't want to, just send me an email with delete for the subject and it is done. I will be sending out Bios of some of our members that have been kind enough to provide and release them. Should you like to have your bio shared with all our Newsletter members, just send it to me with your release and I will include it in one of the Newsletters. Some of you already have sent in bios and I will be sending them out each week. A big thank you to ALL OF YOU. Let's make this a great place for all.
Maybe we can't come over to your house and jam but we can get in here and jam. So, lets just do it. Pick a key and take it from the top. Best to all of you

I'm confused now:

who are these 'techies'?

who is being made uncomfortable through dissension?

why should anyone be more comfortable elsewhere if they wish to post here?

if this is a reply to 'Anyone Noticed?' why the defeaning silence on the subject of plagiarism of replies, the one issue where one would expect the 'moderator' to take a lead?

We've all put our 2pence or 2cents worth into this topic. Lets now forget about what technics did. That is now there problem so let them get on with it and also let us all get on with it and move forward in a constructive way, probably some thing on the lines of the Frank Bez posting. That could be of benefit to everyone.

Hi all
I'm confused as well now,dont quite understand Bebop's post,but i was so pleased when we moved to synthzone,a dream come true
I am new to these forums and it is great to be able to ask any question one may have regarding Music and Keyboards and get a responce almost by return,every one tries to help if they can.
There is always going to be some members that Know the answer, and post back, there are a lot of members that probable know the answer as well but dont like to say in case they are wrong and look silly, no one can be right all the time can they?
These forums are for everyone that wants to learn and share with each other in what ever way they can.
The end goal is play learn and have fun at the same time, whether you just starting out or are a professional have fun.
Mike

I totally agree about moving forward, but my questions were about this strange post.

Like Mike, I'm still confused and still waiting for an answer.

Bebop,
I have read through your post several times now, meanwhile looking for a new
post from you to answer the questions we can see asked by some other members.
To be honest, even by use of my good old dictionairy, I have problems to find
out of what the real message 'between the lines' is here.
Well, maybe no wonder that I don't understand, when people who use english as
the first language seems to be a sort of confused too.

However, if my translation is what I think it is, then it is a message to me
about that at this board I have to do as you commands, or else I can just
leave, is that right?
That here is the place for the clever ones, and those who - "just starting to
develop their learning curve" can stay at other boards, because Bebop & Co are
so skilled that they need this place to pledge the social welfare?
Technote is bad because of the censorchip, but Synth Zone is good because you
decides who is welcome and who is not?

Because I'm a 'techie', and dare to tell that I don't fancy page up and down
about personal tragedies, private parties and even confirm that I still visit
Technote, besides that I don't use a lot of * in the name, I'm a enemy of SZone
and a beginner who needs to stay off of this board?

- "There is also a need for social interaction and relationships by those that
are already comfortable in their technical and intellectual levels that aid in
the interchange of ideas and techniques" you say.

Yepp, maybe so, but there is keyboard expert forums to find around the web too,
so those of you with the intellect higher than most of us would maybe find the
equal intellectual souls there, as well as a simple soul as me should stay else-
where?
Also you are a founder of, and run your own chat room, so could it be that the
social needs are being taken care of in a suitable place already?

I suppose it is this particularly board's terms of conditions we have to look at
to find out which way the administrator would like things to be here, not the
'friendly advice' in your post?

GJ


Btw,
the reason that 'everyone' moved over here, is a result of several
happenings as far as I can see, and if you look back to the posts at
Technote, you will find that SZ was mentioned many, many times, also
by me, as a good alternative to Technote, so SZone is not any new
invention at all.
The strange thing is, you never payed it any attention back then, when
everything went smoothly at Technote.

Although what you are saying not everybody will agree with
But as I have said before that is how democracy works.
Never the less you are speaking from the heart & on both forums that you have posted you have always done so, you have always been polite & courteous a gentleman in fact .

I admire you for saying how it is & in my book that is honesty.
Johnnie

What's so confusing about Bebop's post? Is there an overreaction here? Maybe I'm obtuse, but it sounds to me like he was simply giving his impressions of the value of the SZ board over the other(s), simply his expectations for this board. A hidden agenda---where? About half of the post dealt with an email newsletter and no one took issue with that.
