ATTENTION! Music:Non-Prince "Thread Flooding" Policy (READ THIS.)

Oh, hi! biggrin

Some of you who visit this forum regularly may notice that some artists get a WHOLE lot of love thrown their way in the form of multiple threads posted on a regular basis.

Now sometimes, this is completely understandable - like, say, when a big name artist releases a new album or announces a huge tour. Okay, that's exciting, we get that.

But some very zealous fans seem to enjoy posting tons of threads on their favorite non-Prince artists, even when those artists aren't really up to much.

Folks, we need to calm this kind of action WAY down.

SO, we're starting a new rule here in Music: Non-Prince:

When we mods check out this forum and see more than 5 threads about any given artist posted to the first page (or within the past 24 hours), we will lock those threads and create a sticky thread dedicated to that artist where you can post about this person to your heart's content. BUT. This means you cannot post additional threads on this artist.


We want to make this a forum where people can find discussions based on a broad range of tastes, styles and backgrounds. When it's flooded with dozens of threads about the same few artists, that discourages the diversity this forum intends to promote and celebrate.

So, in short,

CREATE NEW THREADS WITH CARE AND DISCRETION.

LOOK TO SEE IF A THREAD HAS ALREADY BEEN CREATED ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST BEFORE YOU CREATE ONE OF YOUR OWN.

UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE NO "IFS OR BUTS" WHEN MULTIPLE THREADS GET LOCKED. THEM'S THE BREAKS. PERIOD.


We cool on that? Good. Problems with that? Shoot me an orgnote or post on the thread on this topic over in the Site Discussion Forum ( http://prince.org/msg/3/299567 ).

Thanks,
Anx
