Reviews Section

Simon:
 
We've reviews scattered about the forum, would it be possible to create a subcategory called "Reviews" and put them there?  It'd make it easier to find things, and clear up some of the clutter.

Hey PTF, rather than create a new topic, I thought I'd revive this.. well, failed topic.
 
 
I think it would be great to have a reviews section.  
 
Just for PT, there can be one thread assigned for each album/single/EP/dvd/whatever.
 
And we can collectively put in personal reviews, to help members see what people think about a certain album.
 
If this is a hit, it can be expanded to include solo endevors, liek no-man, blackfield, etc.
 
Maybe even an overall reviews section of the forum? with sub-categories for PT, solo acts, and then for everything else?
 
Tell me what you think, I personally think this has a lot of potential!

It wouldn't be a bad idea... would help new fans...

The thread's five years old. One would think if there were any plans to do this it'd have happened by now.  undecided

I think that's beside the point, as this has been on the second or third page.
 
Saying that would basically remove the whole point of PTF suggestions, as, seeing how long this forum's been around, it's like saying that there's no point in suggesting anything new since the idea should have already come up by now  Roll Eyes
 
 
It was suggested way back when, I think we've gotten to a point where this could really benefit the forum. And this still is, afterall, still just a suggestion Smiley

Exactly. Now there are now potentially enough people to push for this change...

Yes, I do read this section every now and again Wink
 
I'll have to speak to Mr. Labcoat about this suggestion as he does all the techy 'behind the scenes' stuff.  
 
The only problem with this suggestion is that the section will just get dragged off topic all the time or people will post in the wrong section.

I don't see the off topicness as such a problem...I would quite enjoy just general chat about certain albums.... I guess it could get outta hand though.  
 
Perhaps just a general "Pt releases" thread?

But that never happens!  Could you seriously speak to him about a mobile version of the site?  Is that something feasible?  Or should we just get a life and not need to check in where ever we are?

Hm, this tends to be a problem in most topics Wink
 
You're right though. An option is to have the section just for reviews, with no discussion at all. This would make it more of a "catalogue" or "collection" of reviews. This would keep it from getting off-topic, and while it would remove all discussion of the various albums, people still have other parts of the forum where they are welcome to discuss an album.
 
I think it could work, as long as it was made clear that you only post if it's a review.

Getting a life? What is this blasphemy?  Shocked

I'd love a reviews section, I do reviews as a hobby. But I don't think it should be limited to PT reviews, it should be for everything!  Smiley
