Thanks for making this thread mate, totally agree with everything you've said. Although this board is old, I note that IDM forums has much better layouts and organisation going on, they have tags, more subforums, and a bunch of other cool stuff we don't. If they're on the same system as us, can we get some of that stuff too? It'd go a long way to improving things around here. I think even gearslutz might have tags now, so we're a fair way behind.
My first complaint is about the stickies, can we rearrange how they work a bit? It would help if there were maybe only 2-3 of them (one about remix comps doesn't probably help that much) and if they were in a bigger font (I didn't notice you'd even posted this thread at first).
More importantly, I noticed that the tutorial master list hasn't been updated since 2009, would it be an idea to start a thread to get people's input as to what should be in there? I'm sure a lot of people have links to good tutes and threads saved, and these could be leveraged to build a better list IMO.
Lastly, I was wondering if we could get a sticky linking to common topics (like mastering, software vs hardware etc) and if those single threads could hold the debates about those topics. This would clear up a lot of the clutter and make things run smoother IMO. If any thread about mastering could be merged back into the sticky, it would clear up a lot of the problems we've been having with duplication.
[1. We're on a much older version of vBulletin that's been rev-locked by heavy customization, so I doubt we can do those things. 2. I unstuck one yesterday, agree about the remix comps since it hasn't turned out the way people obviously hoped. As for fonts, I don't know how to do that and don't think it's possible. 3. I've always asked people to send recommendations for updates to the tutorial master list. You can make a new thread if you want, or just post in there. 4. Those should go in the FAQ, I just need actual links. -DG]
