    Default forum expansion- yay or nay?

    my dear friend foi mentioned to me an idea earlier this year that I have now come around to think it is in fact a really good idea.

    this lounge is getting too cluttered. a lot of people come here to chat and thats cool but also a lot of people come here for new music information.

    i am thinking of dividing the lounge into music related and non music related.

    in the music related lounge, topics would be about music. examples: what are you listening to right now?, new albums, bands, shows/tours/presale chatter, etc. etc. Stuff relating to music. The line up/artists forum will remain for discussions specifically on the current coachella bands (which in the off season tends to blur between the coachella that just happened and the next one).

    in the non music related chat.. that can be for the other random topics that that have become popular. this does not mean a place for stupid spam or the dreaded repeated topics (search button is still working).

    at first some might think its a pain to check more than one forum but you would get used to it and i think in the long run would work out well.

    what do you guys think?

    Only if you call the music lounge "DJ FOI's Tune Lounge" or something.

    Run this by Yablo. If he votes yes, I vote yes as well.

    But....currently the "music related thread" would only have about 5 or 6 disgustingly long threads in it. So much room to grow. How will you weed out the spam (non music related)? And how will you determine if its music related to non music related? Simply by the title? It seems that "music related threads" often don't stay on topic. How will that be managed?

    considering i asked for this a while back also, i vote an insanely big YES! i hate wading through all the "i broke up with my boyfriend again" or "look at me, im drunk and have nothing better to do than post on the internet" threads just to find some good music talk. please please make a separate music sub-forum!!

    thats because people are idiots and dont know how to separate things by topic. also, it might be that people post in those insanely long threads because they think if they make a new one it will get lost in all the crap (which is probably true), whereas those big ones are always around. if there was a "general music discussions" sub-forum, you could have all kinds of threads in it about different bands, show reviews, etc, and it would all be much easier to find. you wouldnt have to go back 20 pages in the upcoming shows thread to find a review of some live performance.

    I would just like to point out that PF is a democratic leader. She asks those whom she presides over what they think. She takes suggestions. She is open to opinions different from her own. We are fortunate PF is not a fascist or communist.

    how about a way to limit the amount of posts per day if some people are making continuous pointless posts or threads. kinda like a timeout. first time could be 10 posts a day, second offence could escalate higher. then people would have to think about their posts and make them count.

    just a wish, but guessing it's not too likely...

    If that was in effect Ficklecycle's post count would be cut by 2/3.

    i dont know how you keep up with the amount of threads that are created every day .... if you dont come on daily, a thread you were interested in, has rolled off .. yes i know the search works, but some of the threads ..yikes .. on that other board, i think i am going to have a thread that just has the date .. ie: today dah, and some days there might not be one, but if it were here, there would be one every day ... anyway, a daily thread that covers all the things like IT RAINING ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY BITCH ... of course you get it .. cr****
