    I've been toying with the idea of condensing the individual artist sxns into a single Music sxn. We've done this before, with shit results, because nothing was done aside from slapping everything into the same box of chaos... here's what i'm proposing. read the pros/cons so that there's no surprises.

    Pros
    • bridges the gap between desktop & mobile (desktop sidebar has these things today)
      • quick follow, quick filter, artist write-ups
    • will boost activity in Music sxn
    • makes it easier to find new music from other artists
    • will de-fragment the sxns... we're used to it, but it's really kinda confusing when you still have a general 'music' sxn + have some artists split off into their own sxn
    • you can ignore the artist/prefix and you won't see artists you don't care about (ex: ignore eminem prefix = won't see eminem threads in the new consolidated sxn)
    • looks kinda dope

    Cons
    • homepage doesn't respect filtering of prefixes, so you will still see eminem threads on the home feed even if choosing to ignore that prefix. the threads will be filtered in the Music SXN though (see mockup).
    • we'll be losing the "album", "music video", "singles", & "mixtape" prefixes/filters found in the artist sxns today...not a biggie tbh
    • our pinned threads from each artist's sxn today will have to be narrowed way down, else you'll see 15 pinned threads when entering the music sxn

    Mockups
    [​IMG]
    ^new Music sxn view. artists will scroll left/right. green = following; gray = not (same as on desktop)

    [​IMG]
    ^tap on gray bar to follow artist (join mention group)

    [​IMG]
    ^tap on the artist photo will filter the sxn to just show their threads. "remove filter [x]" goes back to showing full music sxn (minus any prefixes that you ignore)

    [​IMG]
    ^"MAINTAIN ARTIST FILTERS" takes you here

    [​IMG]
    ^hamburger

    Desktop will stay the same as it is today, but I'll swap out the irrelevant artists listed in the sidebar today with the featured artists.

    Might also introduce a similar view to the sports sxn if it goes over well.

    Vote and hit me with thoughts.

    im cool with it, I actually post pretty regularly now, so im cool with most of the music being together. I understand people liking it split up by artist sections, but id enjoy the spontaneity of it all being in one list. But Ive also thought about the layout/organization of the sections before. I felt like we needed more sections for individual artist, or maybe by label/affiliates, but I guess that kinda of already exists, but I feel like maybe it could be tightened up a little bit. im cool with either honestly.

    I like this idea. I think it makes the moble site look cleaner and more streamlined. Put all artists in the music section, get rid of the random individual sections, and use prefixes to allow users to filter stuff. Good shit Slyk.

    Great idea, and really unique way of achiving the same as individual sub-forums but retaining the activity of one larger general one.
