    Messages to the Mods

    I am particularly irritated by the lack of a sub-forum for the music thread. Music, movies, videos, TV and any other form of entertainment naturally fit together and should all have separate sub-forums under a larger umbrella (Home Entertainment or Classic Entertainment?). But if you want to post or start a new music thread, you have to go to the Multimedia forum which, first of all falls under Computers Can Be Fun and is described as follows
    Whether it is Music,Tv,PlayStation Games or any other sort of MultiMedia this is the forum to discuss it, also you can post your youtube videos etc on this forum..
    Multimedia is defined as: 1)
    using more than one medium of expression or communication.
    2)
    use of a variety of artistic or communicative media
    I would, therefore, assume the multimedia forum is for gamers, nerds, techies and music afcionados who might want the latest from the tech industry for making music on their computer. After you've made your post, you can be sure that the readers are not at all specifically from the readership you are aiming at.

    The Arts and Entertainment forum is described in the thread as a place
    "Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued." The written word, the spoken word, performance art, visual art. What is "Art?" From television advertising to opera, comic books to classic literature, vacation snapshots to the Sistine Chapel Frescoes; we are exposed to art every day. What is art to you?
    So it's the Arts Forum? Entertainment is defined as 1) the action of providing or being provided with amusement or enjoyment. Then why not an Entertainment forum with a Music sub-forum, a TV sub-forum, a movie sub-forum? These sun-forums could fall under a new Classic Entertainment forum, which will also be in the Banal Banter forum. The old Arts and Entertainment forum would be split between Arts (description to remain the same) and Classic Entertainment forum could be described as "what turns you on and vice versa." and include the new sub-forums already mentioned.

    The Multimedia description could be more along the lines of
    the use of a variety of communicative media: playstations, smart phones, new developments in computer tech, social Web sites, etc.

    Who reads that forum but, more to the point, notice where this thread is posted? In the forum that would be affected and prolly find the most readers interested in the topic, IMNSFHO. Furthermore, I would like this thread to stay alive: it's not supposed to be a one-subject thread, hence the title: Messages to the Mods. Maybe I just should have put it as a post in What's on Yer Mind?

    There is a ready made option if you want to speak or address an issue with a Mod already in existence...why post in "Messages to Mods," thread? Seems a bit ass backwards don't you think wjb?

    If you want something from the Mods send them a message directly to their door...they respond. Not necessarily in the manner you desire but nevertheless they do respond 99% of the time.

    ^ I already mentioned that I wanted members' opinions and a place to put new ideas. Have the mods ever polled the membership on any proposed changes? Do they ever even think about changes? Do you want to see this become more of a people's forum? I want a thread that lets any members put suggestions to everybody. If there is a groundswell of agreement or disagreement or simply no opinion on any suggestion, this is the place for it.

    Umm, I rather think you have taken a wrong turning somewhere. Quite why you're here is somewhat mystifying. Are you old and infirmed or just a little bit weird?

    I sent a PM to "Moderator". It took 7 weeks to get a reply and then only after I'd mentioned it in a thread. A better system/method is required.

    We have a sub forum for suggestions. It is called troubleshooting and suggestions, funnily enough.

    Actually, I am not there. But if you're really seeking asylum don't start looking here.

    It's almost uncanny how two assholes look (and sound) exactly the same.

    Nice one there wjb...I'm not sure Willie would appreciate his association with this particular asshole, but nevertheless carry on. I'm sure you've already got the Mods attention.

    WJB, be sure to scroll to the very bottom of this page and then you'll see a message board titled: "Contact Us." That's where you can make your personal issues known to the Mods. They like feedback, just ask Never-na.

    As for the location of the thread, that's been settled. So the Mods listen after all.
