Glad to see you here.

(testing the email notification)

Here we go.... I'm going to have to setup a filter on my email for this.....

There's a notification button on the lower left of the "full reply" window.

Actually, Bob, the preferred method to participate here is to park yourself in front of the computer for maybe 6-8 hours a day.

Preferably at work. wink

I think I'll be glad I set that filter up in my email.

I am concerned about the quality of the posts though. More posts, but maybe lower quality?

Are there any Bernhard's in this world?

I do remember all the buttons kind of confused me. Maybe that's why I went with the pf site. The avatars can be a little freaky too. I'm getting used to the light over here.

I have to go. Time passes quickly when you have one foot in each forum.

Bbobb,

Welcome.

I've been here as long as I've been there. wink No, there is no "Bernhard equivalent" here. Bernhard is truly one of a kind, IMO. But we do have "Del" here (one of the few experts who can design and build a piano from the ground up), we have "Larry" (ex-recording artist, ex-piano dealer, ex-piano rebuilder, ex-piano technician, all in one), we have "lb" (I don't really know his history, except that he seems very plugged-in to the piano manufacturing industry all over the world). I have come to think that "PianoWorld.com" truly excels in talking piano hardware/manufacturing/maintenance/shopping strategy while "PianoForum.net" excels in talking piano music/technique/pedagogy. And, every once in a while, we have some very intelligent and very thoughtful discussions on profound subjects and current events in the Coffee Room that are not related to music.

And, yes, it's much more active here... some people seem to make zillions of posts an hour... so that "notification" thing just might fill up your e-mail boxes way too frequently if you turn it on. wink

Have fun. smile

Welcome, BBobb! smile

I just tip-toed over to your home planet for the first time. I like it there; the black background is very calming, and the members are surprisingly familiar... wink

Yo Bbob,

Welcome to the REAL dark side. wink

Seriously, on a good day, the forums have 300 folks circulating at one time. If a hot topic goes up in one of the forums, you may hit four pages of replies in less than an hour.

So the best way is to just check in often. Very few of us really bite, and then we mostly just gum you... wink

Over 1.4M (and counting) posts where pianists discuss everything. And nothing.

I visited the "other" site and as an eyecare professional I can not recommend the black background format. Headaches and lawsuits to follow I am sure. PW is far superior, in more than one way!

Welcome Bbob. I must confess that I've visited pianoforum to look at Bernhard's advice. I hope they don't revoke my membership for just taking a peek. wink

Welcome, BBobb. A recent Roper survey found that 73% of Piano World members believed very strongly that they were not alone in the universe, and that there must be intelligent life and other piano forums somewhere else. The same survey also found that 81% of Piano World members said that proof of such other life forms would not significantly alter their religious beliefs, and a whopping 98% said it wouldn't alter their political affiliation. The other two percent just kept asking, "can't we all just get along?!!" Just over 52% said that they believed that there was a huge government conspiracy to cover up evidence of other intelligent life (as if the jury were actually in on themselves), and 3% said that they were actively involved personally in probing the universe for other life forms and other forums. This is an adjusted number - the actual survey indicated 55%, but the number was adjusted to account for sock puppets.

It's good to finally have proof that finally answers the question once and for all.

Hope you stick around. Piano World is a fun place, usually. And it can be addictive - why, even when people swear they're leaving and just want to be left alone, they can't seem to tear themselves away from the place, and keep posting or lurking.

Bbobb, welcome!

I've never been to the other side. I'm pretty darn happy here. Thanks for the invite, but no thanks.

It's kinda like that Paul Newman quote "why go out for hamburger, when you have steak at home?"
