OK, here's the deal:
The site is due to undergo some seismic changes soon, so we can take the opportunity to redesign the genre boards, and this is your opportunity to have your say.
We currently have eleven boards covering various musical genres, and although things are getting better, there still seems to be some confusion over which discussions belong where. Some of this will be different genres meaning different things to different members, but can we structure our genres in more user friendly way ??
Eleven should be more than enough boards, but what sub-genres fit well together ?
Should a band like Depeche Mode be covered under Electronica, Alternative, or Pop ??
Does Otis Redding go in the Jazz, Funk, & Blues section (Despite being neither a J, F, or B musician), or is he a Pop singer. To me he's a soul singer, and there's no section for Soul. So do we need a board just to cover black American "pop" music (Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk, R&B) ?
How do you think our categories of genres can be improved ?
Should we introduce more descriptive details of the genres, with maybe example artists to give a clearer idea of what fits where ?
Have your say, or I'll do it myself, and you don't want that...
