    We could get a music forum?

    I'm newish, so this idea could have been attempted/discussed and not worked out. Either way, we could talk about new albums or songs. With the genre of music as the prefix. I dont know, just something to think about.

    Only if the threads all show up on the front page.

    Might be a good replacement for the gaming forum that is leaving the front page. As long as will not be a partial.

    This has been proposed before. For whatever reason, the powers that be are opposed. No idea why.

    I don't think anyone's opposed to it - I think it's more of a case that the niche forums that have been added over the years get used a lot at first, then become wasted space on the forum menu when people stop using them. I may be wrong, though.

    I think a music forum would make the Hockey forum look busy after a couple months.

    I think Hockey may have been one of the ones Chris mentioned dumping. It was one of those failed experiments.

    Re: We could get a music forum?

    I'd love a music forum. Sometimes I look at my library and think damn, I'm old. I wish I knew some young people who could suggest new stuff for me to check out!

    Chris is on vacation this week, but if someone could bump this next, say, Monday, I can bring it up then when he's back? I'm not sure who all is involved in decisions like this.

    Re: We could get a music forum?

    A general multimedia forum might be a more practical idea. That way anything involving music, movies, TV, or any pop-culture-medium can be found in one location.

    Almost like an Off-Topic forum, if you will.

    I didn't know it had been proposed before. I just bought a new album and felt like sharing it, but I didn't really like the idea of putting it in the off-topic forum where it could get quickly swallowed up by Miami zombies or Friday confession threads.

    You say album. To those of my generation you are referring to the old vinyl record music medium. Are you by chance a vinyl collector as well?

    Getting to be an expensive hobby for me finding my old favorites in decent condition.
