Sure that would be ideal but let's be realistic.

this is what happens most of the time.

A person will post about a band that no one has heard of and their new thread will just disappear in the great abyss.

so they go to where the high activity is and that's in the lounge.

I dunno... seems to me that if folks are primarily here to talk about music, they'll do it regardless. The assumption that these people would be so easily dissuaded from doing that, regardless of whether it was in a thread they started or not, speaks volumes about their true motive... especially if they relegated themselves to abandoning music sections to post about whether they pee in the shower or not, simply because their thread got lost in the sauce...

The lounge is used by both music posters, and non music posters...
The music sections are used mainly by music posters. It's as simple as that.

I found this forum in a Google search. Kinda curious about the history of the forum. It'd be nice if there's an "About Us" page or something that serves that purpose.

More info about the site could be added to the newb guide perhaps. Did you check it out?

The whole bolded section is very true but some people feel like it's not right that lounge lizards mainly only post in the lounge which doesn't matter imo. People will post where they want to and if they don't have anything constructive to add to a music post then it's good that they don't post in the music area.

Would be possible to receive a who-quoted-me type function, that notifies a user when their post has been quoted and responded to by another? I've seen this implemented in other forums, and have found it immensely useful.

Ah yes! I was trying to remember that function, as I'd seen it somewhere, but it got lost somewhere in my brain. Will add this, unless someone has some sort of valid objection.
