OK so the rules are about to be updated in all release sections, capping the posts at 3 per day. We will delete threads that breach the limit. If it still seems too much we can drop the limit again. Posters who share content with a very high 0 reply rate will have the limit lowered to 1.

Good suggestion overal

The other questions is this; Shall we turn the section into 'Upcoming Trance & Progressive Releases'. Some progressive gets shared here anyway, and a lot of it is good music. Maybe a simple name change for this section will encourage more. Open question.

All sounds good, thanks 👍The name change is a particularly good idea. You could even add melodic techno to progressive, a lot of that is just trance.😉

How about we discard the genre names completely? It is TRANCEfix after all, but "Upcoming Releases" would kinda mean you can share some other stuff in there, but being this is a trance forum, due to our userbase trance might still be the dominant genre, which works well for all.

Here's why: If we add "progressive", should we also add "melodic techno" and "ambient" and whatever else?

The past has show us that EDM and stuff will get posted too. I'd say the Trance thing should stay.

Progressive isn't a genre anyway. It's short for Progressive Trance. So. Thats trance.

I think we shouldnt mix trance with other stuff but im definetly for having a place to post upcoming release of other genres.

We had this other section in the old trancefix that was for other music by former trance music producers, it wasnt used much because it was limited to former trance producers.

If we had a similar section for all other electronic genres i think it would be used more. Let the user himself tag the genre and keep it open for whatever genre they feel like posting.

Artist - Songname [Progressive]
Artist - Songname [Deep House]
Artist - Songname [Breaks]

Additional fields (or hashtags or whatever) for thread titles are really probably not going to happen here, sorry. Titles can be very long already, and introducing color or icons or whatever would make it an UI mess.

I'm willing to turn a blind eye for electronic genres, but I think that the best solution is a thread per genre (such as best of techno, house, ambient, psybient etc). The few non-trance tracks people were gonna share don't really 'deserve' their own section, and at the same time they would kinda clutter the UR section anyways.

Willing to hear out arguments though, it's not a final decision.

I didnt mean that you implement chooseable hashtags i mean the user they simply write it themselves.

Same as you do in the classic section when people write [YEAR] behind the topic.

I dont think a new section would clutter anything at all, it didnt in the old forum. But i also agree maybe its not needed.

All i know is that personally i wouldnt like to see anything mixed together with trance in the upcoming section.

Yeah I know what you meant. I just wrote a couple of variations on that.

New section wouldn't clutter the forum, but it would be rarely used. I meant that posting in the existing one might clutter it, but on second thought I don't think it would clutter it that much. As said, I'm willing to turn a blind eye.

We already discussed this, between us admins, and I think the conclusion was what I just outlined in the post above. Let's just see how it goes and if there's any need for a section, we'll add it.

Buhuu, let me cry the biggest river in existence, but never contribute with anything myself.
I was so confused because his post just said "lots of bleeps." I thought he was talking about how the tracks literally sounded like lots of bleeps, lmao.
Honestly, what he said doesn't sound to different from what a classic trance purist would have said 20 years ago.

Also, RiP to the Trance All Stars posts. I remember seeing those everywhere but now they're just... gone. Had to scroll 5 pages back to find his last post.

All other forums Ive been on has had separate sections for other genres (atleast one, several or many). Thats just makes the forum more alive in my opinion.

Yeah its a worthy idea. Do you not think though that the genre specific threads in the Music Discussion area can handle these types of posts already?

Probably, yes. I just thought about something like having a section for House classics for example and in my mind that felt appealing. Posting a youtube vid in the music disscussion and in some cases a little text for just one track feel kinda cheap. Maybe it isnt, I dont know.
