PLANNED DOWNTIME: Tomorrow (14th Dec) at 10:00 PM or just after we will be moving to a brand new super fast server. We expect it'll take a few hours but will keep you updated. Whilst the site is offline we will show our status updates. We know we said we'd never have to go offline again but our old server let us down and we've gone all out this time. Thanks and spread the word!

  1. I'm going to sell-up, but.....

    We still don't seem to have a "Shop", but the FAQs suggest that the £18 is the annual renewal fee. From https://www.basschat.co.uk/faq/
  2. Love your header image, Sylvia.

      I'm finding that as time goes on, the collection is becoming all Warwick and smaller!

      Happy Christmas

      Ooo, I love these close-up shots. :)

  3. I'm drawing a blank, which may be due to either my poor searching skills or the limitations of the current search function (still only going back 12 months, I think, until we migrate to a more powerful server).
  4. Aah, yes, you're right. I'll do a bit of searching and see if I can find the thread.
  5. Do you mean this thread? It's still here. I don't know how the OP is doing, though. https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/289778-i-wrote-a-book-about-being-in-a-covers-band/
  6. We need 'Facebook Weird and Wonderful'.

    If you share something on your Facebook wall/timeline from a group that only you are a member of, nobody but those friends of yours who are members of the same group will be able to see it. Everyone else will get a broken link, even when you set your post to Public.
  7. Bass Guitar Magazine Vote and Win(e)!

    This is the reply I received: I am also assured that the birthday congratulations are genuine - think about it, these guys were being interviewed and simply added their happy birthday message to their interview. No need to make anything up.
  8. We need 'Facebook Weird and Wonderful'.

    Guys, if a certain post is in a Facebook closed group, it's not public, and it's illegal to post it on a public forum like this. End of. No amount of redacting and photoshopping will make it acceptable. My advice is to have fun with truly public stuff such as Ebay etc., but leave (most of) Facebook alone, to avoid unwanted consequences.
  9. Bass Guitar Magazine Vote and Win(e)!

    Well, I have no idea, I'm afraid, and I've just done what anyone could have done, I've emailed them. I'll report back.
  10. London bass guitar show 2018

    I have no information about that, I'm afraid.

    They don't seem to have revealed the timetable yet - I'll keep the forum posted if I get any more info. Incidentally, I've finally published the 2017 blog (https://goo.gl/z7UPA4), with a few cool photos of our team, and it's good to know BC will be there again.
  12. SE Bass Bash 2017 - with Steve Lawson and Davey Rimmer

    Sorry, my fault - they were set to Private. They should work now.
  13. I seem to have finally made it! SE Bass Bash blog is here: https://goo.gl/xoNCy9 and belated LBGS 2017 blog is here: https://goo.gl/z7UPA4  Phew... ;)

      Incidentally, I hope you guys have some sort of ad blocker installed - not for Basschat, but for Wordpress, who seem to be going overboard with ads on blogs, at least judging by how many blocked 'items' my own Adblock counts every time I'm on that page.

      Thanks for putting that up (that was my stringless aluminium Tele! - I took it along as another member gave me a bit for it, but we didn't quite link up on the day...).

      Thanks for the excellent write-up and pictures! I was thwarted by a family engagement at the last minute, looked like it was terrific fun for all.

    LOL that was the only non-stressful day so far! Anyway, I've just published the SE Bash blog: Click here!
