^^^take this idea and extend it to all threads

call all destroyer, Thursday, 15 February 2018 02:40 (one year ago) link

context:

- no regular rap thread poster besides forks thinks rap thread should be split in 2. his own motivations, besides a vague animosity towards deej, are unclear to me. i personally think forks is a great guy who does a lot for the board (updating dozens of spotify playlists out of pure generosity). just wish he would not try to split my favourite rolling genre thread in two for no apparent reason, as it makes it very confusing to follow!

- decade+ long tradition of naming rap threads riffing on trends in 'lcd rap' is good-natured fun, bickering over particulars of the name in early january a part of the tradition. this has never resulted in a split before. the names speak to posters' simple pleasure in trendwatching, as well as a more trad 'popist' critical pov that is reluctant to dismiss 'low' forms of the genre out of hand

- despite naming convention, it's well-known that music posted in the threads is not exclusive to street rap (as a scroll through any years' thread would immediately confirm), and the supposed bias towards street rap is a misrepresentation. as in any rolling genre thread, links to music will elicit opinions and critical perspectives. imo this is a feature not a bug!

in conclusion, please lock the thread. thanks <3

2010 was a classic year the top 10 on that list is fire altho i can't believe i put a souljaboy tape ahead of mr zone 6 (arguably last truly great golden era gucci mane tape)

flopson, Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:01 (one year ago) link

it's not about having my own thread, it's about there only being 1 thread. also i really don't think i'm the only one who is annoyed by this! imagine if there were two bobbins threads

flopson, Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:03 (one year ago) link

didn't this mostly come along as a way of creating a deej-free hiphop thread

flopson, Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:07 (one year ago) link

why do you need a mod to lock the threads, can't you just agree not to post in them? Why whine to mods to babyproof your adult beefs?

i don't have any beefs. and to my knowledge, there is no beef. if there is it exists solely in the mind of one person? it's perfectly natural for coordination failures to have solutions like this, nothing 'baby' about it imo

flopson, Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:48 (one year ago) link

the most frustrating thing about this is how it's created the perception of some rift that isn't actually there.

flopson, Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:49 (one year ago) link

it'd be fun if there were 315 rap threads but only one was the real rap thread and you had to decipher clues to figure out which one that was

I love the music opinions in those threads but the secondary attraction has always been one person making a statement about how people perceive the music, another person wondering where that post even came from, and then bickering over _stances_ about a topic that was never even discussed

mh, Thursday, 15 February 2018 06:36 (one year ago) link

really wish ethan was in them sometimes

mh, Thursday, 15 February 2018 06:36 (one year ago) link

Mr Moderator do not lock that thread!

rum dmc (darraghmac), Thursday, 15 February 2018 08:10 (one year ago) link

Feel like there is more imagined drama in the rolling rap threads than there actually is. Usually it's just cool music posts with the occasional digression about some soundcloud rapper some folks think is overrated and others don't. This weird multi-thread spat is really odd to me.

flopson, Thursday, 15 February 2018 10:17 (one year ago) link

there’s not much drama! it’s just the drama that happens has this weird tone

more drama needed imo

five months pass...

this should be adopted en masse
