    Yep.

    Same here.

    I hope no one gets a feeling as if someone was against the existence of youtube threads (at least no one seems to be). It’s rather that both the discussion and the YT threads would maybe serve their purpose more effectively if they were separated. I think Helgi’s idea is great because there are times when at least I want to either share my excitement about a particular video or ask what others think of it.

    Is the YouTube sub-forum getting any traction? I had an idea for a thread, but then realized I need to let the YouTube binge run its course or see my thread get buried...

    In general, the moderators like to see how members respond to a suggestion. In many cases someone will suggest a change, but few people post their views of the suggested change. Few posted comments probably, but not always, indicates relatively little interest in the change. There have been cases where a change was suggested without much interest only to have the change suggested later with enough interest to cause us to make the suggested change.

    Thanks for the explanation, at least this wasn't just left hanging. I guess I will just continue my clicking through the tedious extraneous threads each day when I log on. Perhaps there will be more interest in a few months time.

    Threads that have nothing but youtube videos would clearly go into the new subforum, but there are threads that have a mix of comments and videos (e.g. Best Queen of the Night?). Where would those threads go? It's not clear to me how to decide. Anyway, feedback would be useful.

    And please post comments in the request thread to give feedback.
    This. I'm not gonna survey, but I really doubt there are many threads that are not a mix of YT and discussion. For example, I loved the "Romantic Tone Poems" thread or whatever it was, and there were many YT examples of wonderful tone poems I was not familiar with. Was there a lot of discussion? I don't recall, but certainly some. So take a discussion thread, would you ban those who put up a YT video to make their point?

    Please don't get me wrong, Bonetan, I do enjoy much of what you post, and we have I think similar taste in baritones! Be well.

    Kind regards,

    George

    No, absolutely not. The idea was to put the threads where two or three people post a YouTube video each day in them. The things like 'One Opera Overture a day keeps the doctor away' etc. These are threads which seem to just be posts of YouTube videos without any or much discussion. Threads such as 'Best Queen of the Night' which was more a discussion thread with YouTube videos wouldn't have been included. It's the threads that have a daily post in and continue on like a soap opera with one post (episode) per day. Threads that have a more regular pattern (a number of posts by the members in a few days after which the thread disappears unless it is resurrected) wouldn't have been included in this proposal.

    ^ It’s a pity, if you leave but I understand!

    It is a shame if the subforum structure doesn’t support discussion but I suppose such things are difficult to evaluate. I think we haven’t had any huge discussion threads some time now (or maybe I just don’t recall any at the moment) but it’s difficult to say whether that’s a result of subforum structure or something else. I’d be up for some good discussion with or without the yt threads !
