Post a fund raising thermometer to show how close cumulative donations are to funding a specific goal. Put it the header so everyone can see it - all the time.

Hi,

Someone donated on I think it was Feb 26 but I'm still not able to link it to an account here. Different email used, and no username provided... Whoever you are, PM me and show a match so I can up your forum status to purple. And thanks!

Tried to donate tonight, but when I clicked the link, I got an error message... Hopefully it works tomorrow.

Hey R,

I just tried it to see if I'd get an error too, and it took me right to the donate/process page. Try it again and see what you get. If not, PM greenboy and lets see if we can get it done some other way.

Looking over the new improved member list, I find I'm a bit disappointed in the large number of familiar names of guys I KNOW have benefited from fEARful cabinets, the related knowledge that we've all gained during the process of making, or discussing them...who haven't even bothered with a 'token' donation.

That's without including the fact that there's now a forum, good people and an informative cabinet web site.

I think that maybe the lack of posting on some users' part comes from a bit of intimidation when dealing with some of the tech and spec that goes on around here, and may also show some trepidation due to the 'tough room' attitude that existed in the TB fEARful threads.

Of course, with any 'product' there just may be a whole lot of tire kickers too.


Well, that said, I do have to admit that much of the teckie audio-speak that goes on around here is a hundred miles over my head. It's a little intimidating to know that pretty much anything that I post is like a kindergartner trying to engage in a conversation with a bunch of college guys.

I know that axed a bunch of really stoopid questions, and you teckies - and obviously GREAT bass players - were very patient and helpful. Most never talked down to me (don't try asking elementary questions on TB! They have you for dinner!)

I've never pretended to be a great player, nor am I even slightly intelligent about crossovers, audio, freqs, etc.

One thing I knew was that I had to have a fEARful rig... I knew if I could get through the electronics deets, the actual woodworking and finishing became a wonderful labor of love.

And if I do say so myself, my 15/6 + 15Sub Tower Of Terror is probably the second most jawdropping bass rig in my entire state of Montana.

By the way, I discovered the fEARful phenomenon when my own business was in the process of closing its doors due to the economy. My savings were tied up in that company. I've NEVER been out of a job. And the prospects for a 56 y.o. video producer like me were zilch, so I knew I was at the starting line of a long, protracted job hunt.

I also knew I'd quickly go of my nut, between jobs. So, with no income, I still made the financial plunge to keep myself busy building a 15/6... then the 15 sub followed. $450 for 3015s and 18Sound drivers didn't come easy.

Yet, I still felt compelled to send a PayPal token of my appreciation to the Green Guy. Made me feel great. I honestly think his DIY project kept me sane.

If you've taken advantage of the fEARful wave, don't be a taker... you'll feel pretty good about yourself if you do your part on Paypal.

The thing I like most about this little corner of the interweb is the fact that complete idiots like me can ask stupid basic questions and receive answers and guidance from people with a LOT of experience and knowledge...without any condescension.

There's a lot of discussion here that is WAY beyond my current knowledge, and will probably remain so in the future. I just looked at some of the papers on FDeck's website... and there's stuff in the holodeck that's the same for me.

But I look on the contribution as VERY inexpensive tuition for a graduate-level set of courses in musical sound theory and practice, construction methods, and general musicianship. Viewed that way, it's an incredible bargain.

There are other sites that I support on an annual basis. This will definitely be on the list.

Thanks, Greenboy!

Marcus

There's still time to subscribe before the end of 2012. If you were waiting to see if the world would end, it hasn't. So rush on down to support your favorite Greenboy.

T'anks, Marcus. No need to "re-up" here annually, so it's all the more appreciated!

No problem. I figured that if TB can charge $20/year for a basic membership, I get a lot more value here. So I put my money where it does more good.

I don't see myself ever donating one cent to TB.

Just want to mention to people, especially those of us who've built our own cabs, that we owe greenboy more than just our gratitude for having given away his hard work and effort on the fEARful designs and for maintaining this forum on his own dime.

Well, I find some stoner humor worth the time. But actually what happened was I caught the Led Zep song playing in my mind when phrasing my reply. Now I need to play that first album. It'll bring back a lot of memories as well as some things sounding fresh all over again.

Music is a miracle.
