Chart Analysis - Opening of New Topics

Morning/afternoon/evening!

UKMIX is a huge website for chart analysts and geeks alike - nearly 1.3m posts! Thousands of visitors literally just visit the site to access the chart data alone. With this in mind, a new rule is going to be implemented, a rule that is simple yet will hopefully be effective....
    i. New topics must only be opened by posters that are able to regularly update the first page with the relevant chart data/sales
That isn't to say that you need a specific post count or status to open a new topic in Chart Analysis; however, it will ensure that only the most dedicated of fans or chart analysts are given the opportunity to open new topics for artists and thus keep them updated with the relevant charts/sales information. To anyone that posts outside of Chart Analysis, this won't seem too much of an issue - but for those of us that want the data at our fingertips, it's so handy to be able to just visit a topic and get all you need from page one.

At my - or another moderator's discretion - a topic may be locked and then opened by a new poster if it doesn't fit with the above rule. There should not need to be a rush to open new topics, so please only do so if you know you can keep it updated, whilst that era is active.

If you have any comments on this, please direct them to me or one of the other chart mods, via private message.

For new studio albums, yes.

For everything else, just let the threads stay the way they are.

I opened a new topic about Ola days ago, but still I don't see it online. Was it refused?

Hello. I started a Kelis Food era thread and then realised I didnt ask a moderator, I'm really sorry. If you could let me know whether I can go ahead with this I would be really appreciative. Thankyou.

Hello Adam, you aren't required to seek moderator approval to open a new topic. That said, in keeping with the new rules, it is expected that the first page is updated with chart information, where and when you have the time to do it.

A thread whose era's done for good should be closed.

I judge this on an ADHOC basis.

If its a really old era or a completely defunct era or a pointless bump, I will lock it.

That said, I don't think its worth introducing it as an official rule.

Agreed, the MDNA tour thread is one of the biggest examples.

Sorry if i'm too honest now, but because you're also rarely updating the topics you started? Like Jennifer Lopez - A.K.A, Paloma Faith - A Perfect Contradiction, Frozen OST, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Tove Lo, Charli XCX to name a few (and it's not like they're no-names, so their topics are actually more important/interesting)

Can this rule please be relaxed?

Many new albums do not have album threads because people do not want to be in charge of an album thread.

Does it really matter that the potential thread for the new Foo Fighters' album does not have all the detailed charts runs in the first post?
