The music subforum is meant to foster open discussion about any sort of music. As such, posters must obey the following rules.
1) You may NOT insult another poster's tastes in music. You may say such things as "I don't really like xxx because..." but you may NOT say "xxx sucks" etc... Disussion of ANY kind of music IS allowed.
2) Topics should be such that there is plenty of room for discussion. Topics such as "MC Hammer Blows, Discuss" or "What is your favorite song?" are not acceptable. Asking a thought-provoking question or writing a review is much, much better.
3) Links to streaming video or music are acceptable (youtube, vh1, mtv, etc). However, links to illegal downloads are NOT.
4) Discussion of music in languages other than English are completely fine. However, due to forum-wide rules and the need to moderate such posts, the discussion itself must take place in English.
5) All Random Chat Rules and General Forum Rules apply. (No flaming, no spam etc.)
To keep discussion organized, posters should use a tag as the first word in their title or subtitle. Some examples (others are possible):
[Genre] This is for general discussion of a genre or subgenre of music.
[Artist] For a particular artist or group.
[Album] For a particular album or release.
[Song] For a particular song.
[Video] For a music video.
[Instrument] For an instrument.
Only one general thread for any given topic will be allowed, but threads on more detailed classifications are fine. For example, only one topic on Techno will be allowed, but a topic on Techno and one on Trance (a subgenre of Techno) is fine; only one general topic on guitars will be allowed, but if you want to discuss your particular brand of guitar, that is fine as well.
Current RC staff will oversee this subforum.
If you have any suggestions for improvements or contests in this forum, you may post them here.
