So far the section does what I was affraid of: pretty random tracks that arent famous at all get posted.

Lets see how it goes in the next couple of days/weeks.

We still have to make sure we don't just post 20 "random" tracks per day just because they fit within the time. Again, quality above all else. I would rather see a decrease in #of posts if that means each track is "above average" in quality.

We can’t really filter what people want to post though, as like we say, a classic (or best of whatever year) is a personal choice.

If I post something myself then of course I think it’s quality and deserves its place, but everyone will surely feel that same way with their own selections.

We definitely agree on that, I just don't think one (or several) members should start "spamming" the section with 20-30 tracks each day just to post some classics. Pick a couple, let them sink in and let people enjoy them; Otherwise most tracks will just get burried between hundreds, if not thousands eventually, threads.
I'm not talking about quality control, just don't overflow the section the next couple of weeks

Yeah I hear you. I’d likely post 3 up max to keep things fresh (and give me something to do) then have a browse through the posts from others.

Unless I’m super bored on nightshift and there’s no activity then maybe another one or two may appear.

Darren maybe you stop posting in this thread. Obviously you will defend this with your life, its a bit silly.

“We cant filter what people want to post”
“Classic is personal choice”.

So now suddenly everything is different hm? But your opinion was a little bit different when the one 2011 track was posted...

Anyway, now it will come across as if want it reversed. Which isnt the case. Like I said, give it some more time.

I agree, posting 30 (and even over 5 or 10) tracks a day is a bit spammy. Eventually most will be buried. I get that we have a lot of classics missing, and that there's a competition going on (doesn't even matter because every user counts only once), but it's just too much. This forum will live for at least 2 years. There's enough time to share all your favourite tracks.

Doesn't seem too bad to me if i'm honest, many I agree deserve to be in there.

I don't think popularity of a track should be any criteria for posting, in either section. As I mentioned already there were countless unknown gems in the previous classic section which had no scene notoriety or success at all, yet they are magical pieces of old style Trance music and deserve to be in there. I loved that section for these discoveries, popularity really means nothing to me. In fact popularity is usually an indicator of poor quality in my eyes, especially 2010 onwards.

But I think your quote above highlights the problem with managing a forum section with the emphasis or concern of popularity rather than era/time period. It's too subjective and impractical for managing a section. General popularity does not equal quality. It also sets a pre-condition for the exclusion quality that is unknown, which is not good. On top of that, my own personal sentiments of what is classic and popular for me may be completely different from you, so another level of complication is added, and the sentiments you express above come to fruition.

Ultimately I don't think it's a concern. Users will continue to post music that is important and quality to them based on their own interpretations/feelings and that's fine by me, it doesn't have to be a perfect section. I for one am very happy we now have a section to explore quality I may have missed from the last decade. Music and semantics is a messy mix and any requirements based on semantics is too much to expect any sort uniformity in user behaviour. As long as I have a way to easily explore and browse old vs new quality music then I'm happy. Sorting things by period is an objectivity that gives a good, clear foundation for that to happen.

What is your problem exactly?

Honestly the other mods are all polite and pretty professional but you seem to have some sort of attitude which you continually bring into your posts.

I’ll post in the thread if I like

Yeah this guy is really negative,not sure why hes a mod tbh.

He's an admin and a mod. And he can't have an opinion? He's negative towards exclusion, as far as I've figured out.

He was right a bit, this has been resolved and should be locked IMO. Let's enjoy the new sections and have no further arguments about this. :)
