What about a general question sticky to go with each music forum? That way, people can just post a question on one thread instead of spamming up the rest of the forum. Or is that just another option for the Recommendation threads?

I believe that's been fixed, I PM'd Yac about it a couple of weeks ago.

There was a list that we came up with a little while back. I can't remember where the thread is for it but how did that go?

Were all of the suggestions just thrown away and not considered?

Not sure which list you're talking about. Was it the recent thread I had started? I don't know what happened to that thread either... I may have deleted it while drunk, so there's no telling. No one was really participating in it, from what I remember. Either way, I'm still going to compile a list out of reasonable suggestions (i.e. not stuff like "make frontpage" and other things we already know aren't going to be implemented) and forward it to Yac... and this thread can still serve that purpose.

If anyone has any ideas, feel free to post them here.

Ah ok. I guess none of the ideas were do-able then, because none of them made it on the list I'm compiling... which has zero items.

Keep in mind, I'm not including anything that was already denied by the admin.

Personally, if you make a list of suggestions, I think you should make it without thinking too much about whether or not suggestions are "doable". As long as they're suggestions we can get behind, deciding what goes or not is something the admin will do, not something we have to do it for them/him/her/it. Suggestions may have been turned down in the past, but opinions can still change.

What I mean is I'm not submitting stuff that's unlikely or has explicitly denied as in, never gonna happen. For example:
Not do-able: Remove curse filter.
Do-able: Remove certain debatable word from curse filter.

Yac has recently told me that this list is going to get pushed harder, so I am going to include stuff that may have been ignored or denied in the past, but some things are never going to be approved. In any case, if people want to make suggestions, they should do it here. That last thread may have had a few pages of responses, but I wouldn't have deleted it if they were serious and the thread wasn't just being used as a place to post nonsense suggestions.

Can't you just move every word out of the cursefilter and let the curse filter just sit there to do nothing?
(I don't see the point)

What I mean by "debatable" is whether the word is actually a curse word or not. We (Tore) were able to get gay uncensored, as it's a legit word and the fact that it's treated as a negative attribute is discriminatory in and of itself.

The curse filter itself, though, is here because the site gets a higher google ranking. The admins don't personally care whether we curse or not. But if the filter is here, and filtering curse words, then they get better search hits... which no amount of reasoning is going to discourage, in their minds. As to whether Google only sees the filter itself, or the results of it, I don't know.
