Stickying band recommendations?
 
--For "bands" section--

[sales-pitch]I have what I consider to be a great idea. How combining the most popular threads on a particular genre of music (recommendation threads) and stickying them at the top, and keeping them open.

This way everyone who wants a recommendation can look at the thread, and ask more specifically about a particular brand. It would also be useful for newbs wanting to know about different styles of metal, without starting new threads. [/sales-pitch]

So it would be like:

Sticky: Death/Jazz Fusion Bands
Sticky: Technical Death Bands
Sticky: Power Metal Bands

that would be alot of stickys, and theres alot already

blizzard_beast 2005-02-22 16:06

Not in the bands section GD, there's only one. A basic list of what seems to be the most popular music here:

+Technical Death
+Thrash
+ Jazz/Death Fusion
+ Grindcore
+ Black Metal

Even with a few more added, it wont take up a lot of space, over up in Guitar there's 8!

I'll add a poll to my original post to get some feeback

Edit: Nevermind, I can't

meh


i dont think its worth it , pretty much everyone that comes here already knows what kind of metal is good. notice its only noobs asking for metal advice

blizzard_beast 2005-02-22 16:53

Maybe it'll prevent newbs from posting more useless threads.

guitar_demon 2005-02-22 17:32

no they dont read the stickeys we have already

fatdanny 2005-02-25 10:17

I think it's a good idea in principle, but as soon as you split into subgenres some twat will be saying,

"You stupid penis eating cuntface, that ain't fuckin' technical death, thats pseudo-blast-death-gore-slam-grind. Hahaha you are such a worthless cunt. DIEDIEDIE!!!!. Ban him. RAAAAAHHHH"

ok maybe not to that extent, but you see my point. I have used the search function several times to get band recommendations, that really is all you need.

blizzard_beast 2005-02-25 11:22

Yeah good point. I forgot about the search function! Anyways, I was thinking aloud.

hahah! True.

I doubt it would make things worse if they were only more general:

Thrash metal
Death metal
Black metal
Heavy metal
Progressive/power metal

that's all I would consider. That way, it could be categorized in whatever the last word is before the "metal" because of the adjective describing the metal. Like so:

blackened death metal is still death metal
Thrashy death metal is still death metal
....and Melodic metal is basically black metal
......

blizzard_beast 2005-02-26 22:23

If you like the idea, go for it. I just completely forgot about the search function, so it's bit pointless now. :(

I disagree... STRONGLY.

blizzard_beast 2005-02-26 23:29

I thought he was just giving examples? Powersoft, if you were being serious, then :eek:

powersofterror 2005-02-27 17:48

Why not? Black metal includes a ton of different styles.

BLS 2005-02-27 17:55

no.. just no.

Nihilist 2005-02-27 21:04

This idea could work, but that isn't saying it is a good one. I don't want it to happen.

Meesh 2005-02-28 18:15

Bugger that though, I just fuckin say METAL. We listen to METAL. period.

Rapture 2005-02-28 22:56
