It seems an inordinately large number of the posts here pertain to strings. What strings to use, how to choose strings. I see these types of questions posted in an array of boards, uke talk, beginners, tech support, tips and techniques.

Perhaps a board devoted to strings would cut back on some of these repetitive posts and threads. Where people could review strings, and make suggestions about which strings they like on particular uke makes and models, offering a starting point for folks who are looking for this information rather than just posting another thread about what strings they should buy.

Somebody on this forum tried setting up a string database where we were supposed to submit reviews and comparisons. He set up a site on google or some-such place but I don't think many people participated and I can't find the link so...

That sucks. :rolleyes:

I think a dedicated string section would definitely help out the new folks.

Yeah, and I'm sure if it were actually part of this site that it would be full of posts and review in no time.

...and probably answer all of the questions that keep getting asked...without having to ask them.

Ask...just felt like throwing it in one more time lol.
