I'm interested in resurrecting the infamous emo/screamo sharing thread, and I'll tell you why. When that whole RIAA **** was going down most if not all sharing threads understandably disappeared and this changed the way we as a forum operate. However, about 99% of screamo/emo records are either self-released or independently released through non-RIAA affiliated distribution companies. Secondly, emo/screamo is a genre that is not only somewhat difficult to get into, but also has very few knowledgable fans on the interwebz. Due to our forum having a large collection of intelligent skramz fans, I think it would be benificial to us and mb as a whole to have a thread where interested posters can come to get sound advice and obscure music.

that'd be cool.
i mean you can already post one if you want but i don't see any. so making a sub-forum would create more of those. and it would help people out.
There isn't even a thread on it so I don't see what the point of starting a whole forum for them would be.

The sharing threads being removed had little to do with the whole RIAA thing and more to do with musicbanter's owners. At the time the current owners had just taken over and we asked what their position on filesharing was.

They said in no uncertain terms that it wasn't to be allowed, so all the sharing threads were deleted. I understand your point about it being relevantly underground, but where do you draw the line in what's allowed & what isn't? At what point of obscurity or fame do we allow or not allow links to be posted. It's too hazy & it's not really fair to people who listen to other genres of music.
That's why there's a blanket ban on all of it.

well that doesnt mean it can't be started. i mean maybe it can start of as a sticky in the talk instruments thing or whatever.

but the point of it is so that if theres someone who is like thinking about buying an instrument, but they dont know for sure, they can just come here and find a review on it. and i'm sure it would help a lot of people.

i saw it on another forum that i used to use, and it helped a lot of people. more people than anyone really expected.

but i guess it isnt in my power to make it happen, so im not going to argue it.

I think that if the Instrument Talk forum was being overwhelmed by posts about reviewing instruments a sub-forum would be a good idea but seeing as no one has showed any interest in the topic I don't think its necessary. .

True. But im sure if SOMEBODY goes over there and starts the topic, somebody will follow with it.
Maybe i should put a poll in this forum, asking what other people think before i go and do this?
