Next year(on this day), MS should randomly picked up guys and appoint 'em staff and have fun. For a day, let them face a heat of queries the people boulder on table. Even taking positions of Mods.

Wouldn't be cool?

Might have been suggested before, but if there's a way to prevent more than one nested quote happening then it would be a worthy tweak. Too long quote trains are too long.

That would come in handy. As it stands right now some of us edit posts that take up too much space but having it done automatically would be neat.

First of all you don't have the permissions to edit other user's posts, and second of all you don't even know how to edit your own. I had to clean up that Sonata Arctica album thread no thanks to you. You ended up involved in a quote train that spanned almost an entire page.

Haven't read through this thread, but I just had a thought (and those are rare). Would it be a better idea to just have "Instrumental" as a separate genre tag? So, for example, if I wanted to search through the band list for instrumental bands of any genre, I could?

We already have 'instrumental' within tags, but I think it would make sense if they were labelled both, say, progressive metal AND instrumental, or tech death AND instrumental. I guess you could do the same with an 'Ambient' tag.

Can't tell if sarcasm or not.



I mean, I know instrumental is not a genre unto itself, but I just though giving it's own tag would be the simplest method of what I was suggesting.

Not, for the same reasons you mentioned. It would help users search for instrumental bands regardless of genre.

This is the guy you'll need to message about that kind of thing by the way.

Hi, what's question "Why should it be on Metal Storm?" in band suggestions good for? I thought this is database, or does this site work only for those "better" bands?

It's more of a webzine than a database. Metal Storm is more driven by content (album and concert reviews, articles) than it is by band profiles. It has nothing to do with "better" bands (whatever that means) and the reason we ask for you to clarify why your suggestion would be good for the site is so our database features profiles that are relevant to our users and so that we don't end up flooded with profiles like Metal-Archives.

and to add what Troy said - we also need to make sure the band fits our overall "style"; meaning Nickelback should NOT be on Metal Storm.

Okay, well, I don't even know Nickelback. But if I understand right, it's some kind of pop music. Anyway, what's best to write there, or what persuases you that it should be here? (In truth of course, I'm not gonna say, that in my local band Shagrath plays ukulele or such...)

You can write about the success of the band, mention any positive criticism they've received (such as reviews or press coverage), point out that they are in fact metal (or at least related enough to be deemed appropriate for the site) - it's basically your way of stating your case to have the band added.

Of course, you'll also notice that there are currently 166 pages of suggestions. So don't take it personally if your amazing description goes unnoticed and your suggestion is pushed back into obscurity.
