EGW sent me this message via email. I'm posting it here because I'm looking for input.

Hello Howard
Are you going to clean up the forum categories?
I think it would be an improvement, and also make electro-music look less parochial (i.e. not so focussed on a small group of artists or a particular region).
Here's my suggestion for the list of categories (I think it covers everything on there now):

News
Events
Music
Commentary
Reviews
Technology
Artists
Schmooze
Electro-Music

I think there is not really a need for sub-categories, as these can be identified by the subject titles in each category.
I'll leave it up to you if you want to bring this up for discussion on the forum.


Good suggestion(s). I've been meaning to address this for some time, since SayersWeb posted this: http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-84.html

I have found software for the forum that will enable sub-categories. I'm going to add that at some point, but first I want to focus some energy on my own music. Still, Greg's suggestions would help clean things up, especially in the Artists area.

What would be the difference between Music and Artists?

Please post thoughts and comments as a reply to this topic.

I was thinking that ARTISTS would be for discussion about the artists, and MUSIC would be where people could post their mp3s or links to them.
But it may make more sense to combine these.

OK, that makes sense. That's where the streaming site software would be, in the Music forum. I think I need to look at that software and come up with a plan before reorganizing the forums. When I get the links to software I'm considering, I'll post them here so you and others might comment.
