JinTech said:OMG. These are yet more fantastic updates bringing iOS GarageBand closer to full blown Logic for iPad.
My request to Apple: Please update the guitars and drums. I'd love to customize each to my preferences by changing the pickups on the guitars and adding a tremolo bar (whammy bar) and I'd most like to be able to build my own drum kits (custom drum head tunings, add roto-toms, add splash cymbals, etc.).
Gore should probably get the boot. He's brought nothing to Apple as far as keeping them ahead of the curve in political matters. Apple should've been neutral during the election, in anticipation of it going either way. Now Tim has a tougher go of it trying to play catchup with an administration that is opposed to 90% of Apple's bleeding heart Progressive rubbish.

It became the new dislike, and wasn't important enough to be worthwhile. I thought about just reducing to simply 'like', but looking around it seems the informative button is being used well and holds some value, so I have no problem leaving that in.
Happy new Year everyone.
"Funny" taking the place of "Dislike" (or whatever) was misguided. As long as "Like" remains there should be the opposite. Can you just go back to thumbs up/thumbs down?
If they're truly trolls the mods will deal with it pretty quickly. Jumping in with immediate downvoting to discourage new blood that may simply not be toeing the currently popular line won't help the forum thrive. They could well ahve some very unique insights and experiences that add to the forum value if we give them a chance. We really should be more welcoming to new members. Not everyone who comes in with a first post to note a problem AI has put up a story about is trolling, but they should certainly be forgiven if they think most members believe they are based on the downvotes they would receive. Personally I don't think those frequently using the thumbs-down were ever representative of the forum membership as a whole, just the most egregious. Could be wrong of course but I've been around long enough to understand there's a pretty small but very loud and less-tolerant segment.
The tone of the forum had to change if it was going to continue on, and I believe it's too important a resource not to. We all should appreciate the more dedicated forum leadership instead of nitpicking a silly button, grammatical errors, or moderation efforts. They aren't trying to break it, they're trying to build it up.
