    As the title of the post implies, I think with the removal of the necroposting rule, we should start doing something to the effect of the ETS forums and just have general discussion threads for an artist. I feel like we limit conversation by just having a thread about say, Hollywood Undead's new album (the thread I just came from) when we could just have a catch-all thread for anything Hollywood Undead.

    From there we can list all the General Discussion Threads in a stickied post.

    General Discussion would be used for opinions on the band, song discussions, album or concert news, et cetera. I'm not sure how I feel about the "List your 10 favorite songs by ______" topics being separate, but that seems okay as a separate thread.

    But all in all, I do think we can do some massive improvements for existing and future members by having centralized artist threads.

    Thoughts?

    EDIT: If everyone is cool with it, I would totally be down to just start creating Discussion Threads and compiling a list to be stickied.

    I like the idea but I don't know about stickying them. That'd clutter the top of the forum, no? Unless I'm misunderestimating what you're saying.

    edit —

    Wait. Never mind. I definitely misunderestimated what you said. Carry on.

    Definitely agree something like the list for threads of each artist should exist. I'd also be willing to help.

    I like this. If I discover a new band, "xyz", and I want to discuss my newfound love for them, I could quickly search through the Other Music thread list for "XYZ General Discussion".

    If there already is a thread - great - I continue the already existing discussion with my thoughts.

    If there isn't, I simply create a new thread for this previously undiscussed band and get the ball rolling.

    Not too sure about stickying as that could result in about 30 different stickies and that might be a bit insane. General threads for artists is a great idea however.

    *EDIT* Misunderstood what you said just like Will :lol:.
