where is everybody?

Post by ummagumma » Tue Dec 03, 2019 5:28 pm

this forum seems really dead lately; where is everybody?

is it because of facebook? has facebook decimated the regular forum-based communication platform?

does the Moog facebook page have more traffic?

gearslutz is a joke... you show a photo of your Moogs and all you get is butt-hurt inspired abuse...!

I am here. I have nothing to say. OK, My DFAM and 2 Mothers are working as well as my Sub Phatty... My One 16 is in the pipeline for service. Probably a minor problem. Moog works.

I left gearslutz years ago, long before it became behringerslutz. I do not approve of the moderators on the synth section.

My preferred places are Analogue Heaven, Music Player Keyboard Corner, MW, and Facebook.

Indeed, gearslutz is just a waste of time

Still around... but I play older models -Little Phatty, VOS, MoogerFoogers- and those are of less interest now.
Not sure the newer models topics are attracting less than before.

I hesitate to write here since CAPTHA was implemented. I’m fully aware of some kind of protection from spamming is necessary. Other members I have my greatest respect for have made my opinion of that question to a thread of jokes. I have humor, no problems, but still asking for constrictive solutions of what for me is a creative roadblock.

Moog’s new “inovative” website has also radically reduced my visits there. Thankfully Moog instruments still shine, maybe more than ever.

I am able to post freely and never receive a Captha to confirm my post isn't spam

Is it only me?

I've been hit with the CAPTCHA once here. It is annoying to have to copy your posts to prevent them from being lost - the time you forget is often the time it happens!

I also get the "checking to see if your browser is compatible" message with the three bouncing dots (though of course it's not coming up now that I want to copy the text) most of the time.

EDIT: Here's the message: Checking your browser before accessing moogmusic.com.

And sometimes the site shows up as text only - is that on my end or a problem with the forum itself?
