    Since were not just a rap forum why not add a rock section? i'm sure it would be as active as like the gaming sxn for example.

    Theres tons of users on here who talk about rock like @Soldier @Charlie @JG2 @Bleed @Cyreides and a shit ton more I feel like we would have way more rock discussion if there was a section for it. This would actually get me to post outside of OT.

    There should at least be a sticky for it in the music sxn like we do for NSFW. in OT.

    @Help can you consider this ?

  2. Why don't we have a _____ SXN?

    This question has been answered many times. Start an official thread, and if it's active enough you have a case for a section. As it stands, most rock discussion is scattered and inconsistent. Threads always die. You're happy to try yourself.

    the discussion is scattered and inconsistent because all the people looking for rock threads cant find them because in the music sxn. They get buried under the hundreds of rap threads.

    Cyreides and many others petitioned for the renaming of Music to Hip-Hop and for there to be a sub-section named Other Music just a few months ago.

    As it stands staff (majority) aren't for it.

    There was an Other Music section on SL but for some reason we don't have it here.

    I agree these kind of threads are overdone and stupid but this is something I really care about

    i always thought we should have an general/other music section
    just seeing the section will cause people to make threads

    or atleast a single megathread sticky ... that's boring tho

    i kinda don't even see sectioneighty as a music forum even though the common interest we all have is rap music
    the "music, sports, culture" approach is more the direction i think we represent cause we have a variety of different users

    we bigga than rap :snoopshades:

  14. Threads get buried because they aren't active enough or cared about enough to get bumped. @YoungDirtyBastard
    The most practical and least controversial option is to make a @RockSXN group and use that tag whenever somebody makes a thread.

    Shut up, pussy.

    Even an other genres prefix/tag for threads would be good because then we could sort out threads easier that way.

    We have tags like [New] [Throwback] etc so why not Other Genres or [Non-Hip Hop]?

    :hmmm:

    are you not reading my posts? I explained why they get no activity. People who like rock dont bother going in the music sxn because they know that all they will see is rap.


    I agree we should have a usergroup

    Moving this thread to Issues and Suggestions board coz it's a valid suggestion (even if we've had this same suggestion countless times before).
