Welcome to Dancing About Architecture...
A place to talk about music (wouldn't Steve Martin be proud?)

First off this message board is largely a work in progress.  I'm completely open to adding new sections to the board if the interest is there-- if there's something I've missed in my initial set-up and I'm also open to removing sections of the board over time due to inactivity/lack of interest. 

As for rules, I'm a strong proponent of 2 guiding philosophies that admittedly at times challenge each other:

1.  Free speech.  It's a right and a responsibility.  You have a right to say anything you want but you also have the responsibility to have accountability for what you say. 

2.  Rule of the majority.  If a person is exercising his/her free speech so irresponsibly that a majority of the membership of the board are complaining-- much like on CBS's Survivor you can get "voted off the island."

That being said this board is for discussion of music.  And chances are if you are here you have strong feelings about some form or many different forms of music.  Luckily for us, music, unlike say politics or religion, is not that controversial a topic.

Please just be respectful of the musical tastes of others and try to stay on topic within a given section of the board. 

We're all adults and hopefully we all understand the basic tenets of proper public decorum. 

If you have any questions/concerns/ideas/suggestions/issues please feel free to send me a private message and I'll be happy to discuss things further with you.

Oh and lastly-- just have fun, enjoy yourselves, don't take things too seriously-- life's too short and this is just a message board after all.

Cheers,
Perplexio

Celticgal: Anyone except for "guests" can start threads.  The only criteria for starting message threads is to be logged in as a member of the board.

Whiteray: Welcome to the board!  I believe it has a lot of potential and I hope to start seeing more familiar faces on here.  I've invited several people, many for the blogging community that you and I are likely both familiar with, here to participate. 

Everyone: Feel free to pass the word along!  The more the merrier!

Perplexio,

I found this through Music Obsessive's blog.  I though I'd jump on board and see if I can add anything worthwhile.

Darrin, let me just say how happy I am to have this board online. It's only a few days old and it has already had quite a bit of activity.  I haven't had this much fun on a message board, including my own, for a long, long time.

Thanks for the kind words.  Unfortunately, regarding your board-- generating discussion for a band that isn't giving its fans much to discuss is a rather daunting task.  It's not an indictment against that message board or those who run it but against the band that the board was designed for the discussion of.
