    LTG has had some hiccups but none of them lasted more than a couple of days. If you were unable to reach LTG or get it to respond then that that is probably your connection or ISP.

    In the dark blue line above each post is the date it was posted so if you know to look there you can figure out you re replying to something that was posted a while ago. I confess that most of the time some one does that there is a bit of snickering because the poster did not notice the age. And you were not the person who bumped the thread after years but I didn't think the snickering was directed at you personally, either. Apologies if you thought otherwise.

    Your issues with new registration were almost certainly related to a time when the influx of SPAM was so bad that registrations were closed.

    Now that's downright un-American!

    Well, that's nice : I think l could have voted for that...Sorry for the worry; but you'll probably find other musicians to help start something new...

    Would have been very unlucky; as I tried quite a few times it seems : got a new password that wouldn't wok...Tried to re register I bet too, as I got (several times) funny answers to funny questions such as 'if you change strings on a guitar tuned EADGBE, how many strings do you change ?' - Six, 6, Six (6) or 6 (six) all declared wrong answers !!; or 'Guild makes guitars, what does Gibson make ?'. -'Guitars, 'Guitars and mandolins', 'Mandolins and guitars' all got wrong answer as a reply...Finny to see that a new password ended up coming (and working !) shortly after answering that Guild makes guitars, and Gibson makes Gibsons... I wonder what the heck that means...

    So, well, it ended up working at last...I'm not a one brand man, but other forums have gone buzurk, so It's good to be able to post here again.

    By "buzurk" do you mean like having a generally hostile ambience with a lot of member squabbling or just difficult to navigate or post in?
    I'm just curious since we see that kind of input from time to time, you don't have to name any names unless you want to.
    Even when we used to regularly express brand chauvinism around here it was most often for the sake of humor, but I think the vast majority of us are open-minded about other brands.

    To answer your post Adorshki, I'd say that good people have gone from the forum or the overall structure on one - or been pushed towards the exit(?) -, that some of the mods close up threads with no seeable reason, sometimes delete posts that seem perfectly polite, or misunderstand humorostical statements I think, and don't respect minimal freedom of speech IMO... Some claim a sort of 6th sense to prevent arguments I was told, but mostly show genuine paranoia I believe. Want a name ?
    On an other one, quite a few are too posh, with their expensive pretty guitars, and too touchy about useless tiny little things, that they disappointed me (not to mention wrong political statements by a mod pretending to come to have rules respected - when these political statements are not allowed there ). Sorry I will only give you a clue (it's not the place), both are historically related I read. No problems on the UMGF
    Guild or Martin guys (or girls) look more simple and easy going I think.

    Thanks Frono (hope you don't mind my calling you Frono - I've seen others do it -) for your answer : I did not mind the snickering, but wanted to understand about the problems I've had...
    Other persons might have encountered same issues, Then maybe it's good too that mods would know.
    Thanks
