Forum Changes?????

Post by DJ ABO » Thu Jul 22, 2010 12:44 pm

Matt

This forum i.e. Production Mixing Techniques has now merged with what was Hardcore Breaks/New Old skool. Personally I think it looks a mess, you have to scroll down past about 15 Sticky's to find any new posts. I don't want to sound too dramatic but I think that this move could be the straw that broke the Hardcore Breaks back!

Hardcore Breaks (Private) - that forum is never used. Can this not be made available to the Public and used as an outlet for Hardcore Breaks/New old skool?

Matt & everybody else what is your opinion?? This needs sorting out.

I think the private one should either remain private or removed. It isn't used anymore, so my vote is to get rid of it.

The production section should be named :

Hardcore Breaks / Production Section

As technically both are to do with the same thing really.

Already asked for this twice, personally i would never have voted for merging them if I had known that the hardcore breaks forum would disappear altogether and I doubt anyone else would have either

y?

Doesn't the name "Production Section" cover the whole spectrum of makin music, weather it be HCB, Drum n Bass, Cuntry and Western, disco, oldskool, reggae, house wotever,
why does HCB need to be a separate entity ?

Either that or put the Hardcore Breaks section back up - production on here is generally for new 'old skool' which is why we want it named that.
Being as a lot of us make new 'old skool' & are trying to get it out there, a section on here would be handy again wouldn't it.

Also since all the threads from the hcb section are now merged in with production, seems pointless not having those details in the title.

Following the same way of thinking... If all this forum is about MUSIC , why not merging all sections into a single one?

I'm not one to get all worked up about these things, but when it was decided Old-Skool and HCB would be split into different sections (with HCB right down the page), because "this site was about old-skool", it felt like this site had turned it's back on HCB's.

HCB is old-skool hardcore being made today, or at least that's what I was told when I arrived here. And if you wanted to know about HCB, then this is the site you came to.

I agree with the comments about post counts, I see the posts on this site dropping off, people have to post demo tunes in the off-topic section to get any comments. Check out the Nu-Rave site, people posting every day, it's building up to the buzz that used to be on here.

Agree with OP, this forum is a mess now :(. Production area should be for production only, HCB should have it's own area for promotion, discussions etc and please get rid of all the unneccesary stickies.
