In the past few months, the PPT forums have undergone changes in regards to its appearance and technical aspects. Over the next few months, the PPT Moderating team have decided to reduce the clutter in the forum making it an enriching experience for anyone who visits.
The PPT Staff understands how how much each PPTer contributes to make the forum a fun and lively place in order to discuss all sorts of subjects (music being the key one for this particular thread). As a PPTer, we know you want to come to a forum that's organized, friendly and safe; well, as can be seen, PPT has the friendly and safe aspects down pat. The organization of the forum has been up to par, however with the recent insurgence of new members, the forum has become slightly cluttered leaving a lot of unused and old threads for the Moderators to look after. Don't get me wrong, we're not complaining, however we feel that as a community, we should all work together to enhance our experience on the forum itself. For some PPTers, PPT is like a home and I'm sure no one here likes a messy house, so why should we settle for a messy forum?
Therefore, starting today, the Music Discussion board will become cleaner and more attractive. It has come to our attention that PPTers often create duplicate threads on various music genre's and artists/bands which can make posting a lot more confusing for new members (let alone old members) than it has to be. In order to relieve these members of their confusion, from today, the following rules will be enforced,
1. No PPTer will make a duplicate thread on any artist/band/genre/etc... which already exists. There is a Search button (
) at the top right hand side of your screen which you can conveniently click to search the forum for any threads which may have been posted in the past of that same topic.
Now, I'm sure you're wondering,
But what if the thread is locked?
- If you were to search an artist/band/music genre/etc... and find that the thread you are looking for is locked, you may start a new one. However, if you find that it isn't locked, please post in that thread aside from making a new one.
We hope this new rule will reduce the clutter of this board and if this rule works out, perhaps it'll be installed in other boards. So have fun and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself or any of the other PPT Moderators on the forum.
