I don't know if anyone has made this suggestion or not, but I think there should be a way to put music on your profile.

I agree with this guy. That would be pretty cool if it's possible for that to happen.

I know that it would be very helpful and beneficial for people like me who are studying music in college. =D

Another music forum I'm part of has both these features, which I agree are very nice!

A while back I asked the MusicBanter administrator, Yac, if MusicBanter could add a playlist option for profiles (so it is easier to learn about each other's favorite music and actually hear it), and also include more private message storage, a proper MB chatroom, notification of friendship requests/private messages, and a color personalization option for the site.

I said I felt that activating these additional functions would make MusicBanter even more user-friendly, increasing the number of people who are active members here and encouraging more page views at the site, since any function that encourages friendships to form probably increases the number of visits the site gets per day.

I also told Yac how pleased people are that "gay" is no longer censored, since part of gay pride is using the word gay with pride, and so allowing people to type the word "gay" makes the community more inclusive.

Yac replied right away, and I found out that the site's it team has been given the list of improvement suggestions from MusicBanter's moderators, as well as my list, and so we are just waiting to see if or when the site's it team will make changes. Yac explained that the it team is pretty swamped with work. They must have to attend to a lot of different sites?

Unluckily for you, I can type while I hold my breath. AND I have the lungs of a whale due to my incredible exercise regimen, diet, and Zen-like control of my body. I'm afraid it won't be quite that easy to get me to keel over dead.

That was a good try, though.

Drat. I was hoping that the terrible sight of a long and polite letter from MusicBanter's secret "Veganapocalypse" weapon might spur the it team into action out of fear that if nothing happens I would write MORE.

An I.T. team?




Does Yac genuinely think we were ALL born yesterday? The site I was a global on had one guy who volunteered in his free time to do coding work and he gets more done in a day than Yac's "team" does in a year.

Hey, they have quite a few interesting sites besides ours, such as my favorites: "How Products are Made," "Encyclopedia of Children's Health," "Nutrition and Well-being A to Z," "Encyclopedia of the Unusual and Unexplained" (!) and "Religious Forums."

I decided to look up four topics using these sites, and was pleased with the results, which were very informative and quite accurate: hockey pucks, circumcision, veganism, and space aliens.

I learned:
Quote:
Early pucks were made by gluing two pieces of rubber together (sometimes from recycled tires). Because of this construction, the pucks could split when they hit the goal post. During the 1931-1932 season, a puck with beveled (sloped) edges was used. By midseason, complaints by players and teams led to the return of the original puck. Though there was no official NHL puck until the 1990-1991 season, the basic construction from the early 1900s remained the same.

How hockey puck is made - material, manufacture, history, used, processing, parts, components, composition, procedure, product, machine, History, Raw Materials, Design
See, the I.T. team must be busy scouring their sites and making sure everything is ship-shape, with accurate puck and alien information!

Actually, one big advantage I see in *not* having a lot of contact with the owners is that this site is fairly free in terms of what people can say or cannot say in their posts. Some sites don't let you discuss a whole range of topics freely. For example, at another fine music forum, I asked the administrator if I could make a post about free speech, and I was told it would probably be closed quite quickly because of people arguing! (!!!)

So, although other music sites might have a few prettier amenities, I still prefer MB. And I'm not just saying that to suck up in case the owners are visiting. Really. No, really!
