V is closing and the FNGT is moving...
« Opened on December 22, 2020, 08:42:38 AM »

Sadly and unfortunately, Voat is closing. Because of this, we will be hosting our Friday Night Guitar Thread on Thursday night, at about the same time. We're aiming for 20:00 Eastern, but it may be slightly later - or even slightly earlier.

Then, we're going to rock out the clock as far as we can. It's Christmas Eve, so we'll have to see what kind of traffic we get. I don't expect it to be all that busy on Friday morning and Voat is slated to close at 12:00 PST.

Then, we're *probably* going to do it all over again on Friday night at Poal!

Please, please try to attend. We'll be discussing our contingency plans. There will be laughter, joy, and maybe even a few quiet tears.

It's okay. It really is. The Voat FNGT had a good run, going somewhere near 3.5 years. It isn't going to die. It's just moving to a new location.

We FNGT coordinators thank you for past contributions and invite (and encourage) you to get your account name registered at Poal where we'll be keeping the thread rocking

I can't believe V is shutting down...  I remember back when it was Woaverse..  It's been a good run, and hopefully the FNGT community follows wherever we go.

Newest member here. Can someone point me to the Q research board? 🤠

So it's really come to pass. Only caught the last 5.5 years, but what a ride. User is a combo of my two accounts.

I can't really be characterized as a person who *makes* music, but I can enjoy listening to some from you baguettes.

It looks like most, if not all, will be coming with us. We've had great feedback and we had a fantastic infrastructure to get the message out to people. @Camels-n-Miller is a lost sheep, as his email is invalid. If anyone knows where to find 'em...

Welcome aboard.  This site doesn't get too much use, other than to archive and as a backup plan.

You can see by the age of the site, it has been here for quite a while. In fact, we mention it in every guitar thread - it's in the heading text for all of 'em. Nobody reads those things!

Also, holy balls...

Check the forum stats - like the total number of page views. That's fucking insane.

However, most of the traffic - easily 95% - is bots. Most of the web's traffic is just computers talking to computers, estimated to be in the 90 to 95% range.

I am pretty sure Camels and Miller showed up in some thread this past spring or summer using a different name. So hopefully you were able to reach him through that name.

@COF - please see the @crazy_eyes comment.

I have no idea. I don't pay that much attention. COF would likely have made a mental note if there was a username change, but I can't speak because I have no info to guess.

Hmmm, just on a hunch I used searchvoat and he posted just 8 hours ago. I made sure he is aware and invited.

@COF It'd be awesome if he knew to update his email in the forum.

They can do so with their profile here on this site. Thanks!
