    hehe, while google for sure cant have answers to all, its definitely enough for the quality/calibre of some of the questions asked around forums here...

    some of it as pointed out by carboxy, are indeed being asked around quite often.

    @theliverevolution is true. I've had my share of over-experienced people shooting off the "type google" answer. See, firstly, I've always done my research on google but those answers are usually general answers or just answers from OVERSEAS sources. When one asks about the price on musical instruments here in SOFT, I think they're looking for a more local knowledge. It's the same as when you learn how to handle a weapon in army and want to know more, you read up the notes or the net, but still ask your sect comd to know their own experience with the weapon so that you can at least avoid making unnecessary mistakes.

    In short, some people are just stingy on sharing knowledge and experience. But that's not saying the questions are always good, but the whole "how much is this?" question is pretty valid in this forum cause I've been in search of a certain guitar and been to almost all the stores but still don't see it. So where do I ask then if it's not from an online forum aimed at sharing information for Singaporean musicians?

    This forum is great for local matters and I would even say essential for the local scene.It's natural for it to be smaller and less active than the global forums, but that's better than the forum being very active with non-music matters.Keep it up, new musicians will come and join, older ones will leave for a while but will occasionally come back.

    Simply put, SOFT has lost most of it's appeal (to me, at least). These days I post more at MLP page than here. Reason? Click here and here. I can ask a simple question like that and get 26 replies, be it directly or indirectly.

    If I posted those here, what would I get? "Google it yourself leh. This kind of thing also want people to spoonfeed you meh?" And the war of words would go on and on until some moderator comes by and locks/deletes the thread.

    Despite my join date showing December 2008, I've been around for the longest time. And I know, for a fact, SOFT wasn't this way back then.
    Any problem you can't solve with a good guitar, is either unsolvable or isn't a problem.

    Yeah, + 1 to that. its that kind of attitude that really gets to people. The question here is: Do they really want to help or are they just trying to make you feel stupid?

    You can google the things you want but if you really wanted to help, at least provide the helpful links for people. it's like giving a beginner a float and ask him to swim one round in the swimming pool. although you think he is going to be fine, nothing is certain right? he might use the float as a surfboard, do stupid stuff, slip, bump his head and end up drowning.

    Then you ask yourself, did the float help?

    imho, the problem isnt just a simple googling reply, but more of what has the person asking the question, done, to find out that what they wanna know about

    Internet has made things easier for some and along the way made us think less.
