I have been a member of Guitar Tricks for a couple of years now.  I have enjoyed the content of this forum, but the interface leaves something to be desired.  Any of you that have been here for a while would very likely agree.  


Well I just started doing on line piano lessons (I’ll be doing it simultaneously with guitar lessons here - I’m retired and have the time).  I’m doing the piano lessons on Pianote.  Good quality video lessons on par with what Chris, Mike, Anders and the rest of the gang do here.  But what really knocked my socks off was how great their student forum is.  The interface is very easy to use and the organization really promotes active discussion and a great sense of community.  I have been on the site for about 3 weeks now, and visiting the forum at least twice a day every day.  During that time I have not seen a single (zip, zero, nada) spam post or one by a bot or AI.  So, yes, it can be done.  Their forum interface makes this one look like it was written on a Radio Shack computer.  I would suggest that the GT staff take a look at it.

And now we have AI bots answering questions as if they work for GT.

Yup, it's been a disappointing how GT has let the forum fall into this state.
