I am quite disapointed by the HUGE amount of members, who went out of GMC sad.gif If it is a bad topic, close it.. I just felt, I needed to get this out of me... It made me sad, that so many people went out of this site... you know.. I wont be leaving - if just for the community.. but also all the stuff that going around here.. all colabs, contests.. And some of them even directly said, that they dont want to go back... everywhere around here I read how we all share our "love" towards GMC.. and now this..

I just dont get it sad.gif Why?sad.gif

Actually I don't think anybody is leaving. Few people have joined another competitive site (but I really don't see any big competition there to be honest and objective) but the sites member rate is growing as always. When I joined it (this was in november) site had like 3900 members, and now... well 4600, that's 700 members in 5 months!! THat's like 4, 5 members coming daily here...so GMC is a huge community, the best on the net of its kind, and I'm not saying this only because of the huge number of members, bu tbecause it is an awesome community, with tons of great stuff to learn and place to come when you need anything at all - not just guitar. That is priceless! smile.gif

Its around 20 people from what I saw, that are two-sided now.. and few of them just got away from GMC - at least I havent seen them posting here for a few days.. I just dont see ANYTHING you cant get here... if you skip pavel.. I agree, that he is cool.. but.. you have 40 lessons here? I dont want to talk about Pavel anymore - its his decision.. but you probably have a picture about what I think sad.gif

Also, I am a bit afraid, that another of my favourite instructors will "migrate" sad.gif Sorry if I am being.. too emotive:D It just struck me you know sad.gif

+ 1 with Ivan

It is not a big deal so not to worry. Those who have signed up with a competitor site are probably just curious more than anything! And i doubt many of those are leaving GMC wink.gif

GMC gave me something very special when life wasnt so good to me - and for that I am VERY greatful !! There will always be competor sites, there always has been - this is not a new thing ! i wish them the very best of luck, as long as they are happy. smile.gif

GMC is very unique in many special ways, so lets get back to learning and haveing fun biggrin.gif

People come and go all the time, this is a large community. If a couple of people (out of 4600...) has gone that's no big deal. Actually I think they will be back since this place is just too awesome to miss. wink.gif

Thankfully not.

Thanks for sharing.

Sometimes lately I have thought to myself that it's because we're tough on swearing, sexism etc but you should all know that's out of concideration towards the general atmosphere in the forum, ie out of respect to everyone here. That's you folks.

During the years (I'm not that old but anyway) I've gathered some experience and one of those are that I'm not leaving a winning team. Which I think GMC is. I rather stick around to better it if there are flaws and I know for a fact that switching to something new (job, new site ot whatever) is always a risk. What might look good at a first glance might not be all that and a bag of chips. So for that sake I'd never ever tell the boss my mind when leaving a job for another, or degrade GMC if I were switching sites. I may want to go back to my old job or stick with GMC so just to get something off of my mind to burn all bridges or cut all bonds is never in my favor.

But anyway, we'll keep working to make GMC a better place, always. My part in that is to moderate which is a tiny part compared to what Staff and not the least all the members, us guys, make it to be. So everyone should pat yourselves on the back since it's not GMC without you, and if someone leaves... well, that's fine and normal and I don't see the point in telling everyone "I'm leaving" unless you feel like it's a breakup from family. I know if I wasn't involved I would just disappear. So in a way I'm puzzled ppl have to say they are leaving or that they will stick to both sites unless GMC made an impression.

Anyone who wants a bit of foul language and a bit of tactics and some warfare come join the alliance I'm part of at

Uh...lame. Nothing against you personally Owen, but there seems to be something going on I'm not aware of. Personal vendettas or conflicts aside, does this have anything to do with any problem with this site as a learning tool/community? Just want to know if this "thing" is going to affect anything that has to do with me learning guitar. If it's a personal conflict or something that's fine, I'll let the people directly involved deal with it, it shouldn't be spread out among the entire community, but if it's going to affect me as a student I would like to know.

I don't think they make gathering, it's just different lessons. And one always tries the best to learn, more sites, more lessons! (I have not that money and personally I'm satisfied with the amounts of lessons I find here but there are plenty of ways of learning guitar, one doesn't exclude the other!)

This is a great topic Jakub - thanks for bringing it up! biggrin.gif

Well my philosophy has never been to force anyone to like or be at GMC - on the contrary if someone doesn't like GMC or doesn't want to obey the rules... I'll be the first to tell them to leave.

GMC for me has been about using the internet do something which I find really cool - if someone else doesn't find it cool then it means that

1 - they are cooler than us

2 - we have different definitions of "cool"

If someone thinks that GMC doesn't deserve the title "coolest guitar website" then there is nothing we can say to change that - all we can do is make it better. Which is what we have been doing the last couple of years and intend to keep doing.

Thanks for all the fantastic feedback! biggrin.gif
