I guess so, but I hope all members will remember to write down the new review on the log book, with a link. We'll still miss reviews by new members who are unaware of all these rules, but I guess it will make it a little easier.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?
But what I do is: any time a thread is highlighted in bold meaning that there are unread messages, I scroll up as well to see if there is anything new above the last message. I think this fixes the problem, but a log book might help as long as everybody adheres to it. Otherwise it will just be another thing to click on, which for me is the main downside of the sub-forum = too many things to click on, and less foot traffic.
Maybe the log book should be a sticky in the regular forum, to improve the problem of less foot traffic in the subforum.
