    Of course. There's too much fun here to leave completely.

    When I post a YouTube video is to illustrate a point I’m making in a discussion. Am I missing the point?
    Or are you saying there should be one thread dedicated to YouTube videos? I see the threads for favorite arias for soprano, one for tenors, one for duets, etc., all of which are growing precipitously, as we are posting more than one “favorite.” We all want to share our toys!

    The objection is to threads that are nothing more than a showcase of embedded videos; the proposal is to place them all in a separate sub-forum. Threads that are a mix of videos and discussion would remain as is.

    I’ll second that, if that is needed.

    Someone said it was worth leaving it and raising it again.

    For clarity's sake and for those who missed this first time round, here is the proposal:

    There are a number of threads in which a very small number of forum participants post YouTube videos once or twice a day with little comment and no discussion. (The threads are listed below.)

    Myself and some others here have no interest in these threads and they are clogging up the main forum and the discussion threads. Therefore we suggest that the daily YouTube threads (only those listed below) be moved into a specific sub forum, so that those who enjoy posting them/watching the videos can still do so, whilst the rest of us can get straight to the discussion threads without having to pick through the YouTube jukebox.

    This isn't a suggestion to stop people posting YouTube videos (either to illustrate a point or as a starting point for a discussion) that would continue as per usual in the main forum. It's only the threads that have nothing in other than a daily YouTube video posting.

    Could we have a sub forum for the following threads?

    Opera Youtube Thread - Opera Youtube thread
    5 Minutes to Make You Love Opera - 5 Minutes to Make You Love Opera
    Most beautiful operatic duet - Most beautiful operatic duet
    Most beautiful soprano aria - Most beautiful soprano aria?
    Favourite Arias - Favorite Arias
    Most Beautiful aria for male voice - Most Beautiful aria for male voice.
    Mezzo arias; the best of both worlds - Mezzo arias; the best of both worlds
    Favourite Opera Choruses - Favorite Opera Choruses
    One Opera Overture a day keeps the doctor away - One Opera Overture a day keeps the doctor away .

    I hadn't realised there were quite so many until I listed them!

    It would really help if we could find out how everybody who posts here feels about this, including the two or three who are the sole people to post in these threads.

    As I stated in the other thread, I think this deluge of videos without discussion is not suitable for a discussion forum - that's what blogs are for. Of course, blog posts do not add to post count, so that's probably a major obstacle for the posters involved.


    ETA: I bumped the relevant thread:
    Request: New sub-forum in the Opera section

    That's an interesting point about blogs, however, that would be a much more drastic change compared with putting those threads into a sub forum. It would be nice if the very few members who post in those threads were to say whether it would be something they would be happy with or prefer etc. rather than just staying silent. What would the mods need to make the change? Perhaps we could do a poll to see who supports this change and who would be against it (if anyone)?

    As a moderately long time reader but very recent subscribed member, I would strongly support this change. I echo the Conte's post #53, for the most part. I value the youtube threads, but for a specific purpose. They badly clutter the main forum, IMO.

    I am here to support this proposal again. To be honest, I find the deluge of these daily Youtube updates quite distracting.

    I noted my seconding of the proposal (#50), yet inadvertently posting a few today on Most Beautiful Tenor Aria! Sheesh!

    He doesn't like the idea. I would love to know Rogerx's purpose for posting in that fashion. If he would at least consolidate the YouTube threads to one, as a favor to the other TC members, it would be huge. I hope he'll eventually join this discussion. If you read this Rogerx, we're ABSOLUTELY NOT saying no more video threads.

    I don't totally understand Rogerx's response and I think we have been very constructive in our approach to this. What should the next steps be? Should someone send a message to a moderator explaining the request to create a new sub-forum?
