    Id 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 dont fit neither into Music nor into News nor Technology. We are a music board so I think its fair to have a dedicated thread for the business, as we are talking about Charts too!

    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 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.
