Question Jazz BT Forum?

Im sure this has been brought up before, but I was just wondering if the mods have ever thought of bringing a Jazz BT forum in (like S_G).

It was a great thing to have around, it really turned me onto a lot of jazz that i didnt know was out there, and it was most excellent for it to be sepereated from the regular stuff. The forum was most always happenin.


Thanks!



Cheers,
TOTO

NO!



Just kidding of course. It's not my decision, but I don't see it happening any time soon. But if there is a lot of interest, you never know...

Re: Jazz BT Forum?

Being a Jazz musician myself, I'd love to see a jazz board up here. I get all my jazz from DIME but it's really few and far between...Plus if we get a jazz board going I have a lot of jazz stuff I wouldn't mind torrenting for the greater good. SO maybe if we wish real hard our dreams will come true!

Re: Jazz BT Forum?

If we had enough Jazz here (I think we might have only a couple torrents right now) then we might think about having a Jazz forum. I do remember it being a success on STG (you can write that Toto).

As for what is legal, we have a Band Restriction Policy and it only contains a couple of bands.

If you just need help with correct lineage, we have a thread in Technobabble for that or you can write to any ABT Mod, or myself.

yes, feel free to pm me all the info you have on a show and I'll reply. if you're feeling less shy, its even better to start a technobabble thread with the info for the fastest response.

I don't do much posting but for this special thread I must jump in and say, "Yes, please, let's bring out a Jazz Forum, just to make this world a better place!"

Re: Jazz BT Forum?

Not that I'm against it, but I don't understand why people aren't uploading/discussing more jazz if they're really that interested. My stance is that if it shows great interest (by way of uploads/discussion), then "maybe" it should get it's own forum - but then wouldn't we have to create forums specifically for Bonnaroo, Live8 (maybe), U2, etc.? I see more of those posts/uploads than those of jazz. Of course we could always break down the forums by genre - just a thought.

Unfortunately though, it didn't work that way on StG... for whatever reason, a few folks pushed for a jazz forum there -- as people described -- it got created and people started posting. Even that site that shall not be named had a Jazz forum and a couple interesting shows were posted before it went down. Dime makes it very easy to sort on just jazz and avant-garde shows as well, as it does for other genres incidently, which lends support to the idea of multiple areas for multiple genres. I don't know why other genres weren't created on StG.

For example, I don't post jazz here (heck, I don't post shows much) in part because I don't see the interest -- and in part because I'm grabbing so many great shows from Dime I rarely have upload time. I mean the one interesting jazz show I've seen on here had only 12 completes. But are people interested in that seeing the show in between all of the Hendrix, Floyd, Doors and Zeppelin, etc? (no offense to those who enjoy those groups.)

Also, I think there is some pent-up demand, for example there is a separate mailing list related to (but not sponsored by) Dime for those interested in discussing the jazz torrents on that site. In part to replicate the old days of the StG forum.

My last comment, as I was a frequent contributor to that forum, is that one of the cool things was that for the longest time it flew under the radar in that discussion of music was allowed to be mixed with just jazz discussion (and later a subforum of the main group) -- so people could talk about the music. Something that seems to happen precious little in the 'Lounge' for example, or it is quickly sidetracked into irrelevant side discussions.

Re: Jazz BT Forum?

I agree very much with Jazzbo. Sometimes having a separate forum before there really is a demand, will eventually make things take off.

Although the Piano Bar was being used very little, there was still more music discussion - or at least, more interesting music discussion - in the Bar than there is now in the Lounge. The presence of The Bar also seemed to stimulate other types of discussion than there was in the lounge.

I guess my point is that sometimes supply can come before demand, especially in the cultural/intellectual sphere (a pompous way of saying it, but you get the idea.)
