Hey all. Let's come up with some guidlines for building up pro user rigs. Here's what I'm thinking so far:

- We make a new thread for each musician (or each band would work even better?). Let's try to keep one thread per musician.

- We research vairous websites/materials that give info about that musician's gear

- We post what info we find along with a link to the source of the data.

- For guitar players we try to get things such as guitars, amps and cabinets, effects, strings and picks...and whatever else we can find.

- Once it seems we have a musician's gear laid out pretty good, I'll create a page on the live site for that musician.

- If we can find any cool gear photo's that are licensed under creative commons or get permission from photographers to use their photos, then we can add cool photo's to that musician's page on the site.

Here's some more guidlines we can consider:

- We should try to stick players name into our posts (who is the bass player, drummer?)

-We should always try to find out the models a player uses if possible. The below list makes it hard for me to know what images/links to put in the articles:
- Lined/Pre-Amp
-Ampeg
-GK Bass Transistor/Line

-watchout for duplicate entries of gear

- don't worry just about quantity of people we reserach, worry about quality. I think we'd be doing our global audience more of a favor by listing the most accurate info for less people, than incomplete info for a ton of people.

For those wondering, we try to research multiple sources to compile a player's rig. Sometimes that might mean reading 7 websites, looking at live pictures, reading magazine, watching videos, doing interviews etc... to get good info. We are trying to get good info here! We are trying to make UberProAudio a great resource for the world :)
