Bass Heritage Board – Chronological Listing

Bass Heritage Board” group on Facebook – Post Listing in Chronological Order:

The chronological overview allows easy access to all posts by the date, since the Facebook page interface allows only few posts to load at time – thus making the access to the remote posts possible only by the time consuming scrolling. The “Search” option on the Facebook’s Group Page can certainly help, yet for those who do not remember a particular term, this table will offer a better overview of the Board’s entire content.

This listing however is accessible only to Facebook members, and if you are not one, you will need to join Facebook first. Also, in order to facilitate the access to the posts it will be prudent to keep two windows open – one for this listing and one for Facebook pages. The easy way to achieve this is to “Right Click” the Facebook’s link and choose “Open Link in New Tab” (or “New Page”).

Lastly, each and every one of these posts is by default always active, therefore if you get inspired to add your own comments to any of the old discussions, please be welcome to do so at any time. You will however need to join the “Bass Heritage Board” too. Once in the group, any of your comments will automatically revive the particular post and move it to the top the Facebook’s group hierarchy. In essence, the more bassist and scholars discover these discussions, the better chance will be for a comprehensive assessment of the featured topics.

This listing will be updated regularly, usually some time after several new posts arrive.
