Maybe it's because this is the best place to talk about effects, and you can make lots of friends here. And people post their opinions about effects and how to improve them too.

manufacturers get an idea of what is the latest "must-have" effect.  And a lot of us have bought thousands of dollars worth of equipment from these people; It pays to know what your good customers are saying about your products and what they are looking for next.

Look through the archives/stick around here long enough and once in a while you'll see the big guys bandy ideas around...seems that they benefit from coming here too!

1. good feedback from people who really understand and use effects
2. good place to bounce/test ideas
3. good place to get ideas
4. good place to see what others are doing
5. just a darn nice place to hang out online.

Also, I'd imagine like any geeky hobby (or business I suppose) it's nice to have a place to shop-talk about it. I've glazed over many an eyeball talking to my friends about pedal building, or drumming, or guitar playing, or computer programming, etc etc etc...Sometimes you just need a place to geek out where everybody knows (if not your name ;)) just what you're talking about.

That's what I was gonna say, Tim, but I didn't want to sound like I was accusing anyone.

HarmonyCentral.com seems to be a good resource, but IMO, you sure have to wade thru a lot of BS to try to get a real idea of how a product really stacks up.

its because _i'm_ here, and I'm cool.

I'm sure there are a lot who also are purely interested, and realize that there's tons left to learn.  Think about it, most of us are the kinds of people who would love to do this stuff for a living.  And even if you are, it doesn't make you a genious all of a sudden.

In some cases to steal ideas, like myself, of course, and in other cases to contribute.
