The plan for this Forum
We're trying something new here, and as always we'll ask for co-operation and understanding as we attempt to 'fine tune' a forum that is completely new.

The plan:

There are many places where we can find a single person's view / review, but here we hope to have threads with the views of many - thinking this will be much more valuable that a single person's opinions..

Please start a new thread for each CD, DVD, Music Book, Tape, ... that is the subject of the review. Please use as the Subject the name of the CD/Book/Tape?... If the subject CD, Book, Tape ... is already being discussed in a thread, then add to that thread.. Please do not have multiple subject CD, Books, etc. in a thread..

If you have positive or negative comments, please try to explain them. Please don't get personal, or offended, and try to keep everything at a very respectful level. It is possible, I think, to explain why you don't like a track, CD, Book, etc.. without offending - and we ask that you attempt to do so.

With any luck we'll have lots of views / opinions added to threads so a set of comments of any reasonable sort, from any reasonable person, should be just fine..

Also - we have discussed a bit of this plan in the Forum Related:

And I will thank you in advance :rolleyes: for your understanding if the plans / rules / guidelines for this forum evolve over time..

Oh boy :D

Re: The plan for this Forum

With time, the list of topics is going to be hard to read. Could you define a standard for the title of the topic? I'm thinking of something like:

Format - Title - Artist/Composer - Year

CD - Unplugged - Field Marshall Montgomery Pipeband - 2002
CD - 25th Glenfiddich Piping Championship - various - 1999
Book - Scott MacAulay Collection - S. MacAulay - not dated

Re: The plan for this Forum
I think that is an excellent suggestion Eric.

We'll ask that the topic /subject be identified as you suggest - And the moderator will go back and make the change where needed..

Re: The plan for this Forum
is this limited to piping related things?

Re: The plan for this Forum
I'm presuming Forum rule 2 applies here too;

The forums are for reasonable and responsible discussions of the Highland Arts (for lack of a better word) of Piping, Drumming, Dance, and other related topics. Without exception, rumours about products, organizations, or people will not be allowed.

Re: The plan for this Forum
Yes - to both..

Piping related or including piping - recordings, books, etc.

Not hardware, components, or part - we have the Technique & Instrument Forum for those things..

A Request to Review Writers:

When writing your reviews, could you please break them into shorter paragraphs and leave a blank line between paragraphs? For really good examples, look at all Bob's posts (e.g., the lead-off post in this thread).

I've about gone blind trying read some of these reviews. (And we all know there's much better ways to go blind! :wink: )

White space is good!
