REVIEW'S FORUM STRING?

Post by Ozeshin » Sat Aug 04, 2007 8:47 pm

Ned...would it be possible to add another forum string under "GENERAL" for "GEAR REVIEWS"?
At the moment we(me :P )put our reviews under either...guitars...FX...watever it might be and sometimes they get overlooked.
A reviews string might be of help/interest to people.
For example...if someone is contemplating buying a piece of gear they could either search that thread or post in there asking for a review.
I'm in a position where i can try almost any piece of gear coz i have mates who own a guitar store and can review anything for anyone..
Just a thought...anyone like to second it?

Can I ask why the reviews string specifies it is for gear that is not Tokai related?
Seems odd to me as I would think ppl come to this site looking for Tokai info, so to leave out Tokai reviews seems to leave out its core advatage over other gear reviews sites such as harmony central.
Not a criticism as I'm sure there's a though process behind the decision, am just curious I guess :)

Probably because there are already sub categories for Tokai models (vintage and otherwise) that people post their comments and pics on. Kind of the way we are used to doing it now.

No...there must be some confusion.
The string is for ANY piece of gear you wish to review...and I DO mean review...none of this "oh i tried *** guitar the other day and it sucked".
You can review whatever you want to review in there...although...people tend to review pedals and FX in the "FX" string and amps over in the "AMPS" string...so it might be best to keep it for guitars.
If you want to review a Tokai go for it...Ibanez...whatever you like.
All I ask is that it's a well written...somewhat informed piece.
A bit of research goes a long way.
I reviewed A Music Man 20th anniversary Silhouette in the "OTHER" string and provided pics...manufacturer information and a colour flyer from the manufacturer.
It helps to see the guitar being reviewed.
Ideally I'd like to see pickups being reviewed...strings...pics...etc.
Music DVD's would be great.
Cheers,
Oze

I figured people were already posting Tokai related reviews in the appropriate Tokai areas.

Ned's right.
We DO have plenty of Tokai related threads.
But like I said earlier...the thread topic is REVIEWS....not NON-TOKAI REVIEWS....if you tried out a Chinese or Korean Tokai and want to post your opinions go right ahead...Hell...My dealer told me that he's about to get a couple of the MiJ USG's in and you can sure as hell bet that there'll be a review comming 8)

Ignore last message - I've found it. I must have misunderstood this thread - I thought the whole point of the reviews section was to post all reviews in it? :o

It is...you can post whatever type of review you'd like in it.
It's not like there's any rules or bylaws about what must be posted in a thread.
All I said was that people already tend to post pedal reviews in the "FX" thread...but they're more than welcome to post in the review section...whatever floats yer boat
:wink:
