Could you do me a great courtesy and lock this thread?

Deej doesn't like the rap thread name and given all evidence will not stop being a baby about it and I cannot deal, I've linked to it and will c&p everything into the new deej approved thread

look if you won't stop liking music wrong what do you expect the poor lad to do?

Face tat!
Street rap!
Scoundrel!
Take that!

I think that the obvious choice would be to lock deej's thread since it has a handful of posts compared to ums's and also since it was made in the spirit of deej being deej. what if you were to somehow combine the thread titles?

Maybe rename "rolling face tat thread 2018" to "RIP Fredo Santana"

Monday, February 12, 2018 1:32 PM I Love Music Thread: 2018 Rolling Boring Face Tat Rap for Rap and for Face Tats but Mostly for Rap has been locked.

any reason why here? i didn't request it and it's a strange thing to shut down for no particular reason.

It wasn't me, but I presume because it seemed like everybody sorta agreed/resigned themselves into going with deejay's thread. Particularly via UMS c&ping the entirety of the original boring rap thread into the face tat one. then someone revived it this morning to talk about the music that was briefly discussed therein rather than carrying it over to the face tat thread.

I thought that your thread was the best solution to the problem and was in fact, very funny.

how's life, Monday, 12 February 2018 15:08 (one year ago) link

there's a history of multiple threads for singular topics; really not clear why this seems like someone's best idea.

at the very least, that's where i was planning on posting new rap i discovered and clearly someone else did as well.

I'm not gonna unlock it at the moment. Don't want to step on another mod's toes. Maybe whoever did lock it will show up and shed some light or you could try changing their mind?

In the meantime, what are some examples of multiple threads for singular topics you had in mind? Are you talking in terms of rolling threads specifically or just in general like there's 800 smashing pumpkins threads or whatever?

how's life, Monday, 12 February 2018 15:44 (one year ago) link

805 too many

further, same point i made upthread stands: no one new to the site is going to have any idea that "face tat"= "rap thread"

Chocolate-covered gummy bears? Not ruling those lil' guys out. (ulysses), Monday, 12 February 2018 17:00 (one year ago) link

Was d40 consulted on this

Competition is vital for a healthy marketplace.

Would you consider retitling your thread something else? Something with a strong trademark that contains the word "rap" to suit your business needs but does not contain the words "face tat", to avoid product confusion among the common consumers of rap threads?

how's life, Monday, 12 February 2018 17:49 (one year ago) link

Face tat!
Street rap!
Scoundrel!
Take that!

don't see why! Everybody's following the rules.

It was me that locked it, I thought it was another of the five or six dumb threads started to make a point.

Honestly I think having a second rap thread just for the sake of having 'rap' in the title is pretty dumb as well but if it's healthy competition you're after then I hope you're prepared for the free market to have its say.

Matt DC, Monday, 12 February 2018 21:35 (one year ago) link

you should probably let the young whippersnapper that started this thread know that we're locking dumb threads started to make a point:

I’m sorry — it’s not my intention to “abuse it,” whatever that means (sorry if that seems to make the apology count less I just don’t know what I’m doing wrong)

aloha darkness my old friend (katherine), Saturday, 18 August 2018 01:28 (one year ago) link

you are not abusing it; it simply needs to be left alone for a day or two

I get anxious just reading it and it’s the type of broken interaction model that almost killed me a decade ago. Just not healthy for anyone.

You can’t just lock a thread when it’s become toxic. Like playing god

I wish we could get a licensed therapist on retainer to help referee in cases like what's been happening in that thread.

The over the top love for The 1975, especially on ilm, I consider a long game con. It makes no sense otherwise.

Yerac, Saturday, 18 August 2018 14:30 (one year ago) link

They aren't on my radar at all, so I relistened to some stuff to make sure and then I did research to make sure this wasn't like a longform reddit type of joke.

Yerac, Saturday, 18 August 2018 14:31 (one year ago) link

I avoid ilm threads just so I don’t have to hear about bands like that! what are you all doing

mh, Saturday, 18 August 2018 14:33 (one year ago) link

I only looked because it was the cause of some angst and I did the Arrested Development "...her?!?" when I realized it was about that band.
