Default Should there be a prog forum on musicbanter? (Read First!)

Call me biased, i am a prog fan, but i do think that if this forums intent is to cover all types of music and get kids into other styles of music they havent heard before, making a prog forum would be a good start. I dont think it would hurt to educate posters here about progressive rock, which is one of the most misunderstood genres of rock. You may say prog isnt popular enough, but hell, isnt that good enough a reason to make a prog forum? To teach others about less popular genres of music? I dont see prog being any less popular or "un-hip" with kids nowadays than say classical music. Its certainly a credible genre, more than pop for sure...Prog isnt dead, its no where as popular as it was in the 70s, but it still has a very loyal following of fans from around the world, there are still many active prog movements in many different countrys, including the US, Canada, UK, France, Italy, Japan, Germany and Sweden...It would be a big step for this forum in expanding tastes and being a much more diverse site for music dicussion. You could get kids into new music and attract new forum members in the process. Prog is a very special genre in rock, and it has just as many sub-genres as metal and punk if not more. Many bands today incorperate prog elements in their music, like Sigur Ros, Mars Volta, Arcade Fire, Coheed and Cambria, Muse and many others. The reason i make this a issue is because if someone wants to make a prog related thread, they should have a proper place to put it. I was gonna make a Yes appreciation thread once, but i didnt know where to put it, weither to post it on the general music forum or the rock and metal forum, either way it would have felt too out of place, so that had me thinking. Sure you could say that prog is a part of rock so prog threads should just be posted on the rock and metal forum, but punk is a part of rock too, and it has its own forum, indie rock has its own forum. Why should they get their own forums and not prog?

I think no sorry boo boo you know i like you and all but i see it being a dead forum that would get lots of posts/threads in the first month then just die out due to lack of interest.

But if it was done (i personally think) you should be mod of it and keep it clean tidy and perfect.

I think you're point is a little mis-aimed...if you will, boo boo....this board, I think, isn't to educate people about music, it's for already music-educated people to talk about their favorite music, and such....

Not really, if that was the case, you could just start a freaking chat room and save bandwidth. This isnt my first forum, and others have said it themselves, forums like the indie rock forum are there to educate kids about less popular forms of music, how is what im trying to do any different?

I think your totally wrong thats just down right eltism.If forums were like that i would still be listening to only the misfits and that'd be a tragedy people need educated more then educated people need to dicuss.


EDIT: beat me to it boo boo
