    Hi Chris,

    I guess it depends on what you consider as "the right area", and also "inappropriate areas".

    That may be so to you, but in actual fact not, in terms of where things should be going based on our judgement criteria. It's likely just a matter of interpretation. Ultimately, though, it's up to us where things go.

    Could you give me some examples of what you're referring to? Links to specific threads would be good, noting where they started and then ended up.

    Generally if threads are moved, it's for a very good reason

    Looks like I'm the one in the crosshairs here.

    I'd have put the Shunyata post in Artist's Palette, but the overall theme of the post was intended in a broader, more general sense, i.e. some of the crazy marketing tactics some companies take. That's why I put it instead in the general interest Blank Canvas area.

    Lol... TBH, Steve, I wasn't thinking of you at all, even though I've moved your thread.

    I was watching how it developed, and if it had worked out as you originally intended, then it would've remained in Blank Canvas.

    However, when the discussion started becoming more about cables than anything else, it had to be transferred into The Artist's Palette, as that's where such topics belong

    What?

    You weren't thinking of me?



    BITCH!

    Well I am guilty of putting talks about music in abstract chat sometimes and I am the music mod lol
    Loves anything from Pain of Salvation to Jeff Buckley to Django to Sarasate to Surinder Sandhu to Shawn Lane to Nick Drake to Rush to Beth Hart to Kate Bush to Rodrigo Y Gabriela to The Hellecasters to Dark Sanctury to Ben Harper to Karicus to Dream Theater to Zero Hour to Al DiMeola to Larry Carlton to Derek Trucks to Govt Mule to?

    How about this one http://theartofsound.net/forum/showthread.php?t=6788 ?

    It's got nothing to do with music or playback of recorded music at all, so I started the thread in the general chat area.
    It got shifted to the digital expressions area, which I thought was strange at the time.

    Hi Chris,

    No idea why that ended up where it did....

    I guess it just shows that we can make mistakes, too!

    If that happens again to you or anyone else, please let us know and we will rectify it

    Computers are digital, innit?

    There's far too many rooms with poncey names anyway. Who on earth would know whether something should be an 'artist's impression' or a 'a stroke of genius'?

    I beg to differ. If I buy different plugs, fit them to my cables and find it a huge improvement that I want to share with AoS, is that a tweak which should go into 'Strokes of Genius' or an accessory that should go into 'The Artist's Palette'?
