Why music here?

Post by donuk » 2020-07-26 09:52

Just a question....
Why do we have discussions about music on "On the Inside" thread? I sort of presumed that discussions posted here were of a more technical nature.
Could we have a whole new category called Music?

Maybe (as option / proposal) all about music to be moved to "Me and My system" ... since that music and system is part of us ... :-)

Well, it is a couple of days since I asked if we could have a separate category called Music in which we could discuss our favourite loves, hates, test pieces and new releases.

Two folk have I think agreed with me. 120 have read it. No input from site owner or moderators.

So, I guess it is a "no". Which I take in good spirit.

Pondering why that should be, I am forced to conclude that the majority of the owners of black Freddie boxes are so impressed with the quality of the output that they really believe that there are tiny men and women inside playing tiny saxophones and violins. This may be true. This is supported by the fact that Mr L likes to fine tune his amplifiers himself and advises that people do not unscrew the cases because they need the right tension to tighten then up. The truth is the players may run away......

A likely story.

.......or “On the inside” is a broader term also covering what happens inside our heads when listening to music! 😃

Hi Donuk!

I'm in the mountains among Boazu. Occasionally there's reception and then I sit down and read the forum.

A section for Music has been discussed several times in the past. Usually the conclusion has been that it would create too many categories. But this autumn I think it's time for another rethink of the forum structure.

Good news! And if you want a volunteer moderator for just this section, I would be happy to volunteer...
I could also propose some rules of conduct if you wish. It might serve to bring a wider audience of music lovers into the Lejonklou fold.......

Have a good relaxing time, Mr L. I presume you are holidaying among reindeers not amplifiers.....

Good idea Don. Rules and strong moderation are essential imho. Thanks for volunteering.

I think it's a good idea as well. I'm not on vacation with reindeer but I do stay away from the forums on my days off which are Sunday and Monday, hence no reply from me on this until now. I will be on vacation from August 9th through the 16th on a spiritual retreat where I avoid computers as much as possible.

You certainly deserve time away from both of your jobs, and the computer too! I hope you have a very relaxing vacation, and can have some fun also!

Enjoy...
