Music Board

#1 Post by Him » Thu Oct 13, 2016 10:33 pm

Why hello, everyone. There has recently been a request to (potentially) create a brand new Board! The (potential) Music Board will be a place where you can post your musical works. We are hoping to slide it in next to the other art topics to be fair. But after some discussion between us Moderators we decided it would be best to ask what you all preferred. So go ahead and vote on this poll and we'll follow up on the results. Thank you for your time.

Wouldn't media be more appropriate in some ways?

No, you are taking the Media Board too literally. It belongs with other art subjects.

The drawing board is for artwork, but I feel like renaming or reformatting that board just so you can say that music is a needed form of art on the forum is... interesting...

I agree that music is just a form of media, and seems to fit there best. If we throw TV shows and movies into media, then why not music?

Yeah, there are also plenty of music topics there as well. Could work as a sub board in Drawing, but that could be confusing to new people.

It's not just for any music. It's for music that is made by people on the forum. Hence why it belongs in an art Board. To put it in the Media Board would be essentially telling musical artists their work was not considered art.

I will edit my initial post to clarify.

It was just a suggestion that was made. We are asking you people, after all. It's in your hands.

Drawing board for drawings, story board for stories, why not a music board for music made by members of the forums?

I think the idea of an independent Music Board makes the most sense. Like Rebob said, it may be a little confusing to have it as a sub board.

I myself am not sure if it needs to be anywhere other than the media board. There have been many people sharing their own music before and I think that's where it ended up. Things seemed to work like that.

If you do decide to do anything, I think a new board under the "Art" heading would be best. I'm just not sure how big the need for it is. That's just how I see it though.

That is true- people have made do. But I think it's fair to do it this way. Let the community, let the artists choose what happens. If it were up to me there would already be a Music Board. It's just being fair. If a company did something like this they could easily get sued. Personally, if it's something a company can be sued for, I try not to do it.

I agree that a vote is fair. If its not a big deal for the moderators to just make a new board then I'd say just do it. I myself don't make music, I just browse the threads. I guess it would be easier to find and easier to know where to post it if it had its own thread though.

How big is the demand for a music board? From what I've seen, the existing music threads don't really get a whole lot of use to begin with. If there is some sort of invisible demand than I'd definitely go for the first option.

Very little, if I am properly informed.

I can only think of maybe three people on here that I know could have a topic there, me included. It's pretty niche, I was actually surprised to see this poll.

Would it stimulate more conversation maybe? I don't think so, but who knows.

I voted for independent board, mostly because renaming the drawing board would be a crime :P

But how about making it music and videos instead? I'm under the impression we still have at least one youtuber, though I can't actually remember who it would be. That's also content that doesn't really have a good place at the moment.

Gonna be a slow board, but I don't think that's a reason not to have it.
