    Default Forum Content Confusion

    The descriptions of some of the forums seem to be at odds with the actual posting activity I see.

    The Orchestral Music forum instructs us to put concerto topics in the relevant instrument/voice forums. What I see in those forums is almost exclusively people talking about playing those instruments. Concerto topics seem to pop up most in Classical Music and Orchestral Music forums.

    I'm perfectly fine with how things are working in practice. Could the Orchestral Music description be updated to match and ease new member confusion?

    A revision seems in order, apart from instrument/voice technique.

    "Forum Content Confusion" seems to be worsening in TC, with newer members creating new threads in incorrect categories.

    Primary examples are in Classical Music Discussion. Currently, there are several or more on the first page of this category that belong in HiFi, Music Theory, and Members' Area. Maybe elsewhere.I request that these be relocated. Thank you.

    Yup, an ongoing issue since time began.

    We will move/merge when we see these appear. We can't possibly "see" every single posting made on the site ... since my last login there have been 1,021 new postings. At one minute each that would take me about 17+ hours in one sitting to entirely navigate through. I am not online here 17 hours per day and neither is our staff ... not even, dare I say, any member online for that long in one sitting.

    Good heavens. Why on earth not? You're not suggesting you might have an actual life, are you?
    Live each day like it's your last, because one day you'll be right

    I find some of the content on this forum--especially in the Music Theory section--difficult to understand.
