Quote from: mgriffin on October 04, 2011, 10:00:27 AMI guess I see less value in separating out discussion of forum member music from non-forum member music, and more value in separating "here's my new CD" announcements from discussions of music that arise out of listener interest.What does everyone else think?
Quote from: mgriffin on October 05, 2011, 09:07:54 AMI see a huge difference between these, and I hate the idea of sincere inquiries and discussion about music from a listener's perspective being snowed-under by the much more common and frequent self-promotional posts. I'm trying in a sense to reward honest discussions from the fan or enthusiast's point of view by giving them their own space, apart from self-promotional announcements by artists and labels.
Quote from: Julio Di Benedetto on October 04, 2011, 11:42:21 AMAlso the 2 gear forums as Forrest suggested could become one.....for me sound sources, pre amp or mixer, fx, monitors and cables are all part of the same long chain. I suppose a discussion of where to put microphones on a marimba could warrant being placed in a dedicated recording forum, not sure how much recording technique type discussions we have here.
Quote from: El culto on October 05, 2011, 09:31:31 AMWhy there cannot be a honest discussion in a thread someone posted as self promotion? This is more or less what you say and i disagree. IMO people don´t make a difference in this. Also, the scenario you´ve mentioned will happen anyway since not all discussed music are made by members. In your example also Hypnos releases have to be discussed in the "other section".
