This is my two cents and please downvoat me if you think it's dumb, but...

It would be cool if /v/music was more of a music discussion subverse and /v/listentothis could be for plain submissions. As the site grows, we're going to have a lot more people coming in to both subs and a line will have to be drawn as to what makes each subverse what it is. Music discussion, talking about bands, genres and anything else should happen here. I believe that talking about music as a community and what it means to us is hugely more beneficial than just being inundated with new music posts.

I remember going over to a friends house and talking about the new Offspring album and how cool it was or being introduced to The Beastie Boys for the first time and a good friend taking me through the motions that encompassed their whole style. Listening to music in good headphones when you're by yourself is great, but I think that we're losing something in that. Music is also a communal thing, and we benefit a lot from these shared experiences.

Thank you for reading.

I think you're on to something here.

At the very least, a few "discussion" type flair categories might encourage that level of participation.

I whole-heartedly agree that this shouldn't be essentially a ListenToThis forum, though I think it's important that this main music forum helps people discover new musics; we are going to need music posted here. It's simply striking a balance that I think is important.

I've posted my own ideas in reply to another of the larger posts in this thread that I'd love for you to review and weigh-in on.

It's a salient point, but one I think we should evolve towards as we grow as s community. As it is there are top submissions with 5 or fewer voats. It's a little crazy to me to start talking about splitting up a community that can barely up/down/submit content as it is. I tend to submit links to music I'm listening to. I upvote music news as well. When we grow I absolutely agree there will need to be separation, but now... not yet.
