Default Musicbanter Improvement Thread

There has been similar threads but this will be stickied and acted on accordingly. What can we do to improve the site? Increase album reviews? Encourage more community based threads via The Lounge? Enforce moderation more or decrease moderation? Ask the English mods to stop taking the pish?

Any frivolous replies get deleted. Be serious people. Anything that encourages a more active forum is always appreciated.

It would be cool if the senior members weren't so elitist towards newer members about things that are completely personal preference. I got told who should and shouldn't be in my dream band on one of my first posts here, that was welcoming.

I'd like to see members take on a journal Here.
And see them write passionately about the music they like.

That's music discussion, the point of the thread was to discuss Dream Bands...Anyhow, I agree with Laughing Boy.

This is a preference based ideal though. Most new members are surreptitiously tested to ascertain their musical knowledge. It does indeed smack of elitism but we average 20 new posters a day and we are lucky if less than one stays the course.

We could be more welcoming I admit and could give newbies a longer period of grace.

One other point of note, we can usually separate the wheat from the chaff. If you have a musical opinion and it is reasoned well, we will notice it. So don't get scared off too easily!
