    I would've prefered the version with genre subforums; but maybe, we'll get used to it somehow. Not a fan of excessive usage of GIFs either, but if there was a huge demand for them... Thanks for all the moderators' efforts though.

                    I won’t win a popularity contest expressing my opinion. However, I dislike the elimination of the genres a lot. I’d love to have them back.

                    New Music Friday on the other hand was a brilliant move.

                      I don't like the new changes at all. Genres separated in threads are what make this forum so unique and organised. We like the change guys and the time you've put into this, but I think you're overdoing it now, it was good as it was.

                        Interesting list of stats. Here's my own analysis (because why not? )

                        RnB forum - i know how popular Mariah is on UK Mix. I mean, why else would we invent MariahMix. MadonnaMix? There's potential there. ArianaMix? Maybe in a few years time. LanaDelReyMix? Just not snappy enough, is it? So yes, i think Mariah is possibly the main reason for the RnB forum getting a boost.

                        Country forum got its big boost thanks to Old town road. A three page topic and the song is still at the height of its popularity. I rarely ventured into this forum so for all i know most topics were lucky to get 3 comments, yet alone 3 pages.

                        Personal charts. <3 I find it really interesting to see what music others like, love the sharing experience when my faves are also someone else's faves. Then the ability to discover a track from someone else's chart (or even year end chart). It's how i discovered Alec Benjamin's Let me down slowly back in January. Plus the biggest boost would've surely stemmed from CZB's incredible all time UK Mix countdown. <3

                        TV will have got its boost from such shows as Game of thrones (even though i've still never seen it), Drag race plus the ongoing Eurovision song contest 2019 which will be all over and done with by this time next week. Where does the time go?

                        So i just thought these particular boost served a purpose and shouldn't reflect badly on the other forums for generating a negative result.

                          How many views did the threads have? I know i've visited threads in the genre forums out of curiosity over the years, checked out said song, found it a bit underwhelming/boring/not to my personal tastes and swiftly left thread never to return.

                            A decision has been made on MariahMix - see the details here.

                            Appreciate that the changes won't be to everyone's liking but I hope in time you'll all get used to them - as I said, the genres thing doesn't have to be a big issue and we can look at introducing genre prefixes to topics if there's a strong desire for them.

                              I agree.

                              It didn't particularly feel as though there was a massive demand amongst members for a structural change.

                              The loss of the genre forums is a massive shame in my view. But hey ho.

                                I like the idea of separating retro songs.

                                In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

                                  I also don't really like the gifs, but congrats on everyone for the work.

                                  I'm not sure I voted myself, so that's that.
                                  Agree w/above poster. Also, with no genre's, it looks like it's going to be primarily a pop music forum, then. No alternative/indie(?) Or, current alt/indie will be in The Vault, under 2010's? Re: the gifs & further updates later in the year - are you looking to be more like Tumblr? For me, that's not desirable, but I'm probably the minority.

                                  Otherwise, thanks for the dedicated work. UKMIX is a terrifically run (& fun!) community forum!

                                    Oh, so now the first page of the songs/albums forum will be full of Mariah topics?

                                    I lost my interest a lot in these subforums since the change and it really is messier than I first thought, I‘m sorry but it‘s getting a bit too much now

                                      Having genres was one of the most appealing things on UKMIX. You had such good overview on what’s trending now in R&B.

                                      All that appeal is gone now with the merged section.


                                      Plus I find it very annoying to use the SEARCH function every time I want to contribute to an R&B topic as Pop is clearly dominating the sections!

                                      It kind of puts me off that Taylor Swift, Rita Ora and other kiddie boppers appear everywhere now.

                                        we were seeing a real decline in music discussion by forum
                                        Wayne, but the decline is in 2/5 genre forums - I don't get the point of removing them. Music is always discuss by genre and always will be, I don't see why UKMIX is behind it? really?

                                        And [MENTION=25215]DnBLover[/MENTION] had a point - I can see most of rock/dance topics sink down while all pop/rnb topics will stay at the top of singles and albums forums. For those (Like me) who first visit rock and dance forums and very rarely rnb, it will be a disaster to search new topic for rock/dance music (thank god Mariah is excluded from all those forums).

                                              And it's comments like this that make it even more important that she is coming back.

                                                Or is UKMix turning into MariahMix completely now?

                                                    thank god I am not the only one with that feeling. Sorry but looking at old rnb forum, first page was filled with Beyonce/Mariah/Rihanna topics. How any one suppose to find new music in this mess. I am far from being hater or judge someone by his/hers music taste but I live here for 15 years now and I know how it will go with genre merged forums.

                                                      You all fear popular topics like Mariah/Beyonce/Rihanna etc being on the front page? How silly!

                                                      No one is forcing you to read those threads. You are also able to scroll to the second or third pages if you so desire.

                                                      Sometimes people act as though they are somehow being limited from posting in threads theyíre interested in. The number of threads that Iíve moved with literally zero posts was astounding.

                                                      There is also the New Music Friday thread everyone is welcomed to share new music in. The Mariah-phobia on this forum gets too much sometimes.

                                                        Well, i think most of us have to blame ourselves for not voting in the survey, if majority stated that genre forums were better, i'm sure Wayne and mods would take notice. If there'll be one in the future, i'll definitely voice my opinion and i'm for genre forums to return.

                                                          I did not notice this change was happening as I'm a frequent reader of the Mariah threads currently merged in their own section-however, the other main reason I use UKMix is to find out about new releases, by genre. Mainly r'n'b and Pop occasionally. I've just been searching for the thread and then read this announcement. Please bring back being able to search by genre!

                                                            No one is forcing you to read those threads. You are also able to scroll to the second or third pages if you so desire.

                                                            Sometimes people act as though they are somehow being limited from posting in threads they’re interested in. The number of threads that I’ve moved with literally zero posts was astounding.

                                                            There is also the New Music Friday thread everyone is welcomed to share new music in. The Mariah-phobia on this forum gets too much sometimes.
                                                            This is what I don’t get. Guys, you’re allowed to go past page one on the forums! It’s free!

                                                              Why the constant "vote threads" in a newly redesigned forum? We're flooded with notices and stuff by each visit it became so distracting actually! I like this place a lot but this recent merge change is just so much.
                                                              Don't Worry, Cause You're Really Not That Hard to Replace.
