I thought that we should create a sticky thread for chat that is not exactly a review of operas on DVD and blu-ray, so that we keep this kind of talk here, without multiplying the number of threads, to make it relatively easy to find the various composer threads.
This hasn't been a problem so far - there hasn't been a lot of talk outside the reviews themselves (or the light banter, fun comments in the context of the reviews). But it could become a problem in the future, so, I thought that it would be prudent to start this thread.
One example of the kind of thing we can post here:
Herkku had started a thread with the creative title of "Houston, is there a problem?" - and I moved the thread here, but since the software makes the oldest post be the first one, the only way to start the thread by the above introduction was to edit it into Herkku's original post.
So here is Herkku's post:
I just watched Stravinsky's formidable Le Rossignol on DVD. I had a vague recollection of it having already been reviewed here and would have found it with the Search function, if I had entered both Stravinsky and Le Rossignol in the query. Then I began to browse the Miscellaneous and Modern threads before finally finding it in the Russian thread. Well, so much about my logic, but I found new material in the Miscellaneous thread, reviews of works that I had totally missed.
This may appear totally insane, but should we have a kind of log book thread, where new reviews would be announced? And is it possible to make it sticky, so that it would always be on the top, preferably the newest messages also coming first?
I was and am all for the subthread, and this was a problem with the single thread, too, if you missed a couple of weeks. But with the several threads dedicated to single composers or larger entities, messages are still easily lost, when new ones are added. What do you think?
