Music Forum Policies and Guidance

The music forum is the place to talk about music. This includes albums, bands/artists, and everything in-between. This thread outlines a few of the forum policies that help maintain a smooth and consistent environment.

Thread Titles & First Post

Album vs Band
Band threads are for discussion about a band or artist. The most common topics include unannounced new music, tours, and other generalized conversation about a specific band. Album threads are created to specifically discuss an album by a band. The are more specific on purpose to drive the conversation toward that album and to include information about that album. Some tour or other general discussion can also take place, but it's best to keep album threads on the topic of the album they are about.

Album Thread Titles:
Artist Name - Album Name (Month Day, Year)

If no release date is known, you can use (TBA - YYYY) until a release date is announced. Please spell out the month, use four numbers for the year, and do not include anything after the day (e.g. do not make it an ordinal number like 12th, or 3rd). Do not include the record label or any other information in the title. Please do not capitalize or otherwise stylize any portion of the band or album name, just use regular title case.
