wtf is this i love metal nonsense

was there actually a groundswell of support for this?

i think pulling music threads out of ilm and making tons of metal subgenre threads are both lame. it's more to keep up on for those who are interested and will lead to lots of irritating crossposting.

i think the threads that exist there now should be moved to ilm and the board should be deleted.

Definitely against a separate metal board. There's no point unless we balkanise all genres in the same way, and then the whole board would fall apart due to niche market stultification.

emil.y, Saturday, 19 March 2011 15:01 (seven years ago) Permalink

imo its completely appropriate for there to be a separate board since METAL IS NOT MUSIC

wow I didn't know this happened.

y'know as a metalhead, I kinda think this is kinda lame. almost seems like something that if the goons did it, people would be ripping them for it. I mean, metal is music, right? It's not like I Love Everything where 'Everything' constitutes such a large number of things that you practically have to create smaller sub-boards to make it easier to follow.

idgi. are we going to have 'I love Dubstep' or 'I love chillwave' boards next week?

the notion of "I love [genre]" boards is really stupid imo, I have no idea if somebody's actually proposing such a thing but on ILM phases come and go where this or that genre is "trending" or whatever

But the question isn't about whether people are interested in the types of thread - just because people might want a rolling doom thread doesn't mean they want or need a dedicated metal board. That's the only thing measuring number of posts will tell you, listening to people's opinions in places such as here will give you a better idea of how popular the board concept actually is.

the thing is is that most of the metal board posters have already had this discussion and said "no, that's silly & there is no need to take our kind of music and separate it from the broader category of music," so it's a little "well, we're trying it anyway, never mind that we already had this discussion" to just go ahead and do it - and now, people have to go to extra lengths to not post to threads they might be interested in so as to avoid offering support to I Love Metal, which (and this is not! not!! OMG HOW HORRIBLE, I'm just discussing bcz this is a discussion borad OK) is kind of "in order to not have this thing you said you didn't want, you're going to have to stop using Site New Answers or go fix your prefs." Which to me it seems like the people who wanted the board had the opportunity to make their case, didn't, and went ahead and just put it in anyway.

It's not actually a big deal though let me be clear about that lest anybody say "you are makin a big deal!" ok!

i am kinda of the try it and see if it works mind wrt new boards, so this is pretty much my fault, so sorry for shaking shit up - there have been some peeps that have approached me about not feeling comfortable on the rolling thread because its super promo oriented and for the non-journos i can see where that would be kinda a high bar for contribution so i figured what the hell. this board is def not written in stone, and if i dont get on this thread to respond much today im not ignoring yall, i am at work.

yeah tbh I'm totally cool with it as long as it doesn't mean "if you start a metal thread on ILM it will be moved to I Love Metal" - if all the metal posters go "yeah, prefer new board" then I'm sure I can adjust tbh

I mean is that what the argument is? Cos I cant make sense of any of this.

skipped a lot of msgs here but basically if u dont listen to metal or w/e how could this possibly affect u, also probably stfu about it? the rolling metal thread really isnt the same as autogoon etc, ie 7 dudes talking about w/e its like 700 guys posting about what promo cds they got and it sucked, it needed to be split, dont really see HOW PEOPLE ARE POSSIBLY AFFECTED AT ALL by threads that they do not read? something i've enevr understood about ilx, but then again i don't look at ILM or SNA all day, i just look at whatever threads i like

my solution to the rolling-every-subgenre thread is: I'll post to rolling metal. if there's a band that warrants its own thread, I'll post to that or start it. if some subgenre thread has some sort of special reason to be blowing up (like if Gorgoroth made another masterpiece like Ad Majorem I can see the black metal thread getting pretty lit up) then I can imagine posting to it but otherwise I don't see the point, it seems like trainspotting to me and I am not into that shit. I don't vigorously oppose subgenre threads but I do think they're pointless, rolling metal is fun & has flow whereas separate-bin-for-everything just does not interest me in the slightest. this is the internet and it's 2011, "things move fast" is actually OK by me
