In order to organize the Chart Analysis forum in a more clean and easy to read/search way we decided to make a few changes and add some new rules to this section.
From now on, all the threads dedicated to a certain artist/album will be listed in this thread, with only one of them being the official thread and the others being closed so they won't be unnecessarily bumped, making all the relevant info about that artist/album organized in one single thread.
These are the new rules for the creation and posting on the artist's threads:1st ::
To create a new thread about an artist or a new album
, ask in this thread for the permission and wait until a moderator answers to you if you can or not open the thread. This measure is to avoid duplicate or unnecessary threads. Also, if you see that a thread was locked you must know that there's always a reason for it, so please do not open a new one with the same subject without talking to the moderators. 2nd ::
There's a standard name for all artist/album dedicated threads
and when you make a thread, it must have the same title wich can't be changed, even if it's a small part of it. A thread dedicated to an artist's charts & sales history will be named as "Name Of The Artist :: Charts & Sales History"
while threads for a new album will be named as "Name Of The Artist :: The "Album Name" Era"
. We recommend that both threads are started with 3 blank posts so we will have space to put on these posts later a resume of all the artist's or album's chart & sales history. The standard names were elaborated so it will be easier to find a thread and to understand what's it's content.3rd ::
Keep in mind that the Charts & Sales History threads are dedicated ONLY to chart-related discussion about all the music an artist have ever released
, while the "Era" thread is dedicated to all the chart-related discussion about the era of a certain album, wich means you should talk there about the album itself and any singles, tours or home-videos
that come out related to the same parent album. Any other kind of discussion that it's not chart-related must go to the other music genres forums here on UKMix. Last, but not least, remember to always keep your posts centered on a thread's main subject without making comparisons between artists and most important, dissing ANY artist or ANY member.If someone creates a thread without the permission of the mods that thread will be deleted and the person will be informed by PM of the rules of creation for new threads.
Also, after creating a thread, please post the link for it here so I'll remember to updated the Index quickly!
Any questions, feel free to ask here!
