I'd personally love to see a music subforum and I think it would be a great little addition to the site. The "Post what song you're listening to" thread could go in there which could help draw people in, and it would be a nice little space for people to post about specific bands/generes/subcultures and get recommendations. The thread I mentioned is great to peruse for fun, but it's really not viable at all to get any information or recommends since it's just a complete mess of every genre and type of music. I realise technically people could post about music in the entertainment subforum, but I really think it warrants a separate subforum (inside "Entertainment").

 

In fact, I feel like entertainment in general could use some more direction - I feel like splitting adding both Music and Movie subforums would help boost a bit of activity in there. At the moment "Entertainment" is just a mess of everything, and it's all dead threads because no one knows what to talk about in there. In my opinion.

 

But personally I don't care much about movies and I'm just here to advocate for the Music subforum :)

 

Thoughts?

I don't find the Entertainment subforum very active in general and personally I think adding additional subforums in that section is redundant. 
If it was more active it would make sense but in the current state I don't think it would improve anything. These are just my views from experience adding sub-forums to relatively slow sections of the forum in the past though.

Remember the life-hacks subform?

I didn't even notice we did.

 

Maybe it's time to change the inactivity.

I think once the activity around here picks up, we can start looking at upgrading forums. Right now it seems pointless.

Lol that life-hacks subforum was really a flop. I don't think a Music subforum is really needed as of now.

I feel like a big reason the entertainment subforum is so dead is because it's so unfocused though. I personally have never posted about music there since most people going to an entertainment forum would probably be looking for discussions on movies/tv shows and personally I don't care much about movies.

I feel like adding some focus may pick up activity in it a bit. After all, the "post what you're listening to" thread is way more active than the entertainment forum in general because it's focused.

I understand why people are against the idea though. Shrug.

Same tbh. 

Other than star wars and LOTR/Hobbit I don't watch movies.
