New sub forum for music industry/business

 

Postby KokoCollino » Sun Jul 15, 2018 2:33 pm

I’d love to have a new sub forum for all music industry and business related topics!

For example:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=135413

These topics don’t fit neither into Music nor into News nor Technology. We are a music board so I think it’s fair to have a dedicated thread for the business, as we are talking about Charts too! :D

Hmm I feel like this sort of thing fits under general music discussion.

I have to disagree. People there are music lovers and I feel like business/commercial/industry related topics are more putting off to them. I don't think talking about the commercial part of music fits there.

What do you guys think?

I can't imagine it warranting a big enough sub-forum personally.

I get KokoCollino's point; these topics really get lost in the General Music or News sub-forum, but i still have to agree with Spartan as i don't see enough people caring for these kind of topics enough to warrant a completely new sub-forum.

In my opinion, there is already too many sub-forums...so much so that topics can genuinely be shifted between several sub-forums.

If someone is interested in music discussions, for example, there are at least six sub-forums to choose from while a topic related to streaming can fit either into the Internet & Technology sub-forum (Eg. TIDAL, Spotify), General Music Discussion or even Chart Analysis.

No, to Chart Analysis :wink: and against a new sub-forum.
General Music and Technology fit the best.

I'm inclined to agree - either GMD or the Chart Analysis forum dependent on the story.

I'm not inclined to make any changes at the moment, though always appreciate suggestions for improvement.
