Personal LB subforums

I'm considering inviting/allowing users to have their own personal subforum (possibly inside the LB) to post as many tracks, podcasts, live recordings, pictures info etc as they please.

Is that something that interests anyone?
Or would we simply be replicating older and better social media pages?

Think it's a great idea..one that would really add to this place! The LB is a great place for possible feedback on WIPs..but this would be a cool way for members to actually share their work directly with the community on here, without the need for them to leave feedback..more a case of having your own "showcase".

Excellent idea. I find the concept appealing and would liven up the place imo.

Re: Personal LB subforums

I'd subscribe to something like this, for sure.

IMHO, don't worry about it coming too close to social media - there's a reason why people still come here, for the actual community aspect of it. Anything within this niche is going to be a step above the 'open world' of facebook for those of us who are specifically looking for it.

Would love to see this implemented.

Re: Personal LB subforums

It would be a bit MySpacey but it seems a good idea.
My concern is that it could become to self-contained, so I would rather limit it to music, so users could have their own personal listening booth to discuss their music only.

Sure.
From the outside it would be waaaaaaaaaaaaay less impressive than myspace, trust me.
It would basically just be a list of names of IDMF members, but when you click on one of those names it takes you to a list of threads about their music, very much the same as it is in the LB now.
I'm not trying to promote spamming of pics and stuff tbh, it's just that, in the same way that we can't stop people posting pictures and stuff in the LB now, it would be almost impossible to police (and why would we want to?) the posting of images inside of these threads. It's not worth making such arbitrary rules. If people want to post pics and videos and stuff here (which they do) then we should just let them instead of fighting it because of some hang-ups we personally have about promotion/social media/whatever.

Re: Personal LB subforums

Sorry if this is TLDR... but yeah I'm in a ranting mood... so...

I listened to Roo's old track the other day, from 5/6 years ago that he dug out and bumped thread on, then realised that there's probably loads of good old tunes that deserve to see a bit more light like that, because it is awkward to search specifically through artists stuff... I guess that's what peoples profiles on music hosting platforms are for. However, this move would keep the listening environment more contained, encouraging users to stay on and use the site longer; so traffic could increase. Similarly it could decrease if its more awkward to use than the original system, alien environments can do that (I guess this is advising a touch of caution)

It sounds like the listening booth is turning into the IDMf members charts... quite cool. A list of members to expand through would be ideal to navigate with certain filters to sort the list, it gives more power to the listener, which is who the listening booth should be focusing on. It also allows for self promotion, so artists are gonna be happy too... win-win?

I guess the sorting filters should be the standard by date for new releases, an alphabetical sort by artist name, genre and the profiles activity, like the red hotbox currently used for a threads activity (I honestly don't know much about coding any of this so whatever's the easiest solution obviously)

I think its a good move... with the right thought behind it, it could make every members music more accessible to everyone else. People generally like that kind of thing, generally because people are lazy and want everything done for them. Props for pushing to make it happen, thanks for reading and hope this helps with any brainstorming that's going on

Build it and they will come

Unless its a wall to keep everyone out
