The recent post in the general forum made me think of this. I propose we bring back the old STG Jazz forum. There was always some really cool stuff in there, that seems to get lost in the clutter of this huge forum.

thoughts, comments, concerns?

suppose it could be a sub-forum of the ABT forum, just to provide a sorting method. Then people will want a Metal forum, a Jam Band forum, etc.. and we'll have to spend time moving things to the right place.

as much as i enjoyed the jazz forum at STG, it becomes a bit of a nightmare when there are too many sub-forums on a board...not to mention the amount of time it would undoubtedly add to the moderator's workload, as james mentioned

its one of those things that looks great on paper, but when put into action becomes more work/hassle than anticipated

...and a DMB forum ;) :lol:

of course, this dumps it in Lynne's lap, but we could modify the upload pages to have a checkbox for "is a Jazz torrent" or similar... then have a box to check on the adv search to filter all but records with that field set to true... that accomplish getting a listing of Jazz torrents... maybe even just include it on the search drop-down as a pre-config'd option for ease...

I'm sure code-monkey-boy can figure it out.. :clap:


I have this other idea, too (unrelated) but I'm afraid to suggest it for fear of having a case of tomatoes tossed at me :D

Actually, I do have some ideas similar to what James posted. I'm working on upgrading the test site (I think I said this one year ago :lol: ) and after I do the upgrade, I can work on the mods for what I have in mind.

ok, let me know when you are in a really good, uncrushable mood and I'll post the other idea for consideration.. :D

I think that's a good idea if it is an option.

random thought..

perhaps just request/announce of 'a jazz appreciation month'.
then a blues appreciation month..punk, funk, etc.

Ive noticed over the years that when just a certain group is seeded - a few other recordings of the same band follow suit. This may work for genre too.

from what Ive seen on other sites, allowing everyone to categorize a band just becomes a mess of whatnot.

it doesnt take that long to simply browse the active audio/video torrents IMO.

you guys raise some pretty good points about user classification. dime is a mess w/ artists in multiple categories and no consistancy. if i remember correctly, the jazz forum was self regulating, w/ mods who had the ability to kick/move torrents that didnt really fit the classification moved back to the general population (not that i am volunteering, i do not believe i am worthy). i just miss it because there was always really good stuff in there. :(

Jazz forum was great. Jazz discussion was great.

No need for any other subs. But that one stood its own. And I think my vote should count as 50. :wave:

I would even be happy to give an hour or 2 a night or so to mod such forum if one was to rise from the ashes.

The only problems with the stg jazz forum that i remember were the debate over if a show was ever commercially available should it be allowed and trying to distinguish what was a legitimate label.

we can all play together. down with pigeon holes....I can talk jazz with someone if they like that but I am not for the separation.

I am not for splitting all the genres. It was just a very unique, good forum IMO. I know I miss it. Not everyone comes around a lot and the Jazz seeds do get pushed back rather quick. A lot of new Jazz was posted that I don't see a lot of.

And I loved the Jazz discussion as well.

With the economy the way it is, I can't just go throwing around my 2 cents everywhere anymore. Shit now that Osama and Lydin are moving on up, I am probably only going to work under the table and keep all my money in a shoebox.

Shit now that Osama and Lydin are moving on up That "moving on up" (The Jefferson's TV Theme song) comment seems racist to me. I think this belongs in the lounge.

I like Jazz...especially the black musicians.

No I'm not drinking. My heros in jazz are black. It's not about race. It's about talent.

why not just start a thread about whatever jazz ideas players etc you wanna talk about.?

I think for now, we are just gonna use The Piano Bar for jazz talk. The purpose of that forum is to talk music and I really haven't seen much jazz talk going on there.

I love Jazz and like to share my thoughts about it, as well as learn from others. What is the Piano Bar?

meh.

A jazz forum would bring more jazz torrents with the quality that comes with it being uploaded at this site. Anyone who was a part of the Jazz forum at STG knows how great it was. *cough*five*cough*.

The discussion part of that forum was born from the upload activity there and often revolved around different uploads and players from those shows. Along with some requests.

Oh well. Worth a try.

In keeping with my upload pattern, I will be seeding some nice, obscure jazz videos from my tape archive. I have plenty to share. Jazz Christmas from Lincoln Center 12-2-89 will be upped soon.

So there is a forum at TTD for people just to communicate in other languages, one to discuss politics, and the lounge to generally raise hell, not to mention the other 2 subs for the chosen ones....but a Jazz forum would be too much.

:hmm::hmm:
