    Political forum is so hard to manage. Like at what point is it not a discussion of differing opinions and becomes more attacks on each other?

    I was on a board that had a secret organization like that It got very toxic eventually especially when it all leaked.

    If you need more moderation in Entertainment, I'd be happy to help out again, take on a more active role.

    I'm sorry, I feel like this has been glossed over - you were part of a secret organization that essentially used hitmen?

    i want a job where the only thing i'm allowed to do is change thread titles and add headers
    i'm way too anal about those, i'd literally make every one of those in the music forum perfect

    So, a group of butthurt douches essentially? I hope they got their comeuppance!

    since the other thread is locked, i think record labels in album thread titles are important, some people will be lured in more by the record label rather than a band they don't know

    we collectively decided on that title formatting to make it simple and easy to read (esp since there's a character limit so that's difficult for longer titles), and to include the record label in the OP instead. i just edited the thread for including record label info.

    Is this policing of album threads for real? Record labels are as important as the release date. Many people will click on a thread simply because they recognize the label but may not be familiar with the artist. And having every thread's OP being practically identical? So we need to remember a bunch of guidelines any time we want to share or start discussion surrounding an album? Seems highly unnecessary and pushes further away from a sense of freedom within the forums.

    I sort of agree with this but at what point does it become to much of an eyesore. My solution is to have a record label thread and you can post album release threads for that record label in it.

    i think some continuity in format is good, but sometimes more information is helpful. like same date format makes sense! album - title, etc. but as i said, record label definitely draws someone in

    I don't disagree with you on that point. But I missed the discussion or move to adding in the dates to album threads due to being on vacation. It was somewhat jarring to see it in the title and to me at least from a design standpoint made me glaze over threads more.

    dates in thread names are something i wanted. they're great and it makes it easy to skim through the music forum to find recent or upcoming albums.

    The mods discussed the thread formatting to great length and made, what we thought collectively, was the right decision.

    We went back after Casey pointed out the label thing, and decided to put it in the OP. Thread titles have a character limit, and sometimes the label will not fit anyways. This format creates a cleaner look that doesn't clutter.

    If you have a problem with it, that's fine, not everyone can be pleased. It's not "policing" threads, it's moderating and that's what we are tasked to do as mods. Nothing we are doing is keeping freedom out of the forum, or whatever other stance you want to take. Jason created this website with a clean design and we just want to keep that going with a clean, cohesive look to the forums, something AP always lacked.

    Did we ever set up Slack for us? One of my favorite things about this is that the OP is still unfinished.
