@rjamorim: IMO, you shouldn't raise concerns about how the users will behave (netiquette, etc.) before you try.
@2BDecided: Anyway, I thought one of the points of having an off topic section is to draw the irrelevant stuff away from the "real" part of the board.
@SkorLibran: I don't know how effective it would be, but maybe having a TOS for the HA Music Forum would be a good idea. Rule #1 could be "If you don't have something nice to say about the musical tastes of another person, then don't say anything at all."
The kind of users we would attempt to restrict using such a TOS would be the same type of users who aren't going to read it anyway!
LOL! The forum engine is completely fucking up quotes and tags.
Hm, I don't see how such a subforum can attract many new folks who are looking for a music discussion forum and stumble upon HA and start discussing music without even looking at the main content of the forum.I'd see a music subforum more as a service to the folks here at HA who now also have a place with people they know to share their other passion that is automatically linked to audio compression: music.
I think it would be sweet to have a music category in the forums... and since you say it would be just for discussion...may i suggest some subforumsClassical, New Age, Jazz, Rock, Electronica, Experimental, Film Scores, Anime, Game...
Music is best left to the off-topic section for a forum that is primarily geared towards audio-coding and technical aspects of audio. A forum on audio-mastering will be nice if there are enough takers. I voted NO--mank
