In almost every other forum I post on, especially in music sections, they have a system whereby they have a single thread for a band, etc, and any duplicates are locked, and I've always wondered why we don't do that here. A lot of people just don't like starting new topics for whatever reason, and I think it would help in getting the section some much needed activity. Nobody wants to start a new thread just to post about a band's tour dates or album releases or whatever, which they almost always have to with the current system, but few people would have any reservations about posting in an existing thread.

I don't know what kind of work would need to go into this, so I understand if it turns out to be unreasonable. But I think it's worth considering.

DISCUSS.

ALL the bands. That's what I mean. If somebody wants to start a thread about a band / book / film, they check to see if there's already a thread for it. If there isn't, great, start a new thread. If there is, great, post in the existing thread. As it is, most threads end up with five posts saying "yeah I like x" and "no x is awful" before they're auto-locked.

Ah, I see... I thought that was the kind of system we had here to be honest, if people want a band thread then feel free to start one for each band I guess, I don't see anything wrong with it and it would encourage more discussion if people did participate (the threads die because people don't wanna post about the band I presume...).

so yeah, as far as i'm concerned, feel free. :P

I don't think that's necessarily a "system". You can't force members to search and see whether a thread has already been made, although we wish we could.

Speak to Staton and see what he is willing to do, as the caretaker of the entertainment forums.

Best thing to do for it, is change is back to Music, and put it back above the other useless sections.

I just don't think there's enough posting in entertainment to warrant this. Plus I feel it would just be the same someone posts a band, a few youtube links, then people say ya or na and the thread dies. Just a case of not enough traffic to make having this system necessary.

So are you kninda thinking of putting a topic up so people can post bands/music artists new cd release dates, tour dates etc. Or, having people start new topics for their own favourite bands to list of what's currently happening.


But too be honest, I thought that is what Twitter was invented for.

So THAT'S what Twitter is for. Thanks for clearing this up for me!

I'm not obsessed, it's just a healthy life-dominating interest. :(

What's a "Twitter"?

Okay, Twitter is sorta like facebook except you follow celebs and bands and everything like that, and they post their release dates for tours, cd's, movies etc. But they also post random shit like funny youtube clips and funny quotes, and ofcourse you can vote their post up and comment on them, or post on their profile walls and stuff like that, and also people follow you if you have an account on there.

Why would someone ever want to "follow" a celebrity, what is so special about them that seperates them from the rest of us? Do they have magical powerrs?

It's because people become over obsessive with news, gossip and rumours about them.

If I had a twitter, I'd probably follow band pages or something, if I was interested in seeing them live. Other than that, I have no idea. Celebrities have the coolest magical power of all: Lots of money

I always thought a Twitter was something that annoying teenaged girls did when they shared idiotic inside jokes between friends....
