As the new forum relates to other artistes couldn't the proposed names be from any song by any artist rather than sticking to Dylan?


Yes. You are brilliant.

The new section is active now. Thanks Mad Cow!

Now people have to start some threads so it doesn't look so dead. When I get a chance I'll look for non-bob music threads and move them over.

It used to be nice when people bonded over their art, photos, poetry, prose, song stuff. . . etc. here.

But a lot of people got shot down when the non-artist guys invaded those threads and gave people shit. . .so it would be nice if we could keep that negative crap out of there.

And truth be told, I'm kinda crunched for time these days. . . don't really have anything to share anyway, but would like to cruise through and see what everyone else is up to.

There seems to be a lot of forums on this site. Couldn't the three recording forums just be brought into one forum, Dylan forums in one forum, etc. Maybe most prefer it the way it is. It seems excessive to me, just wondering what everyone else thinks. Thanks.

I'm still waiting a "new forum" for Spirituality. There have always been spiritual undercurrents and overtones in Bob's writing and his music has had tremendous impact on how people perceive themselves and the world around them.

Those are spiritual issues.

Spiritual issues come up regularly in other forums and discussions but it would be interesting to have a Topic area specifically devoted to such discussions.

Bob Dylan, Recordings, Other Artists, Off Topic, Political World, Suggestions

6 forums or less would cover it, no?

I think more categories makes it more organized. If you're only concerned with the Tour info, then you stick to the Tour Section. Etc....

Just seems heavy. Perhaps categories could be collapsed? Seem to be forums that are really just subcategories of other forums.

Just my two cents.

I love having different categories and would welcome many more... I have also be thinking long and hard about the existing categories and think that they would benefit from having a make-over... why not give the existing categories new names to help freshen things up? We could still show the old name of the category in brackets alongside the new name... that would avoid folk getting confused and baffled... let's do it!

Could we change "General Discussion" to "Non-Dylan Stuff"? Please, thickboy, please?

I think every Topic should be named after a Dylan song... like Political World. That would be an appropriate response to honor the one whose music and influence drew us to this site to begin with. I think have topics named for something other than Dylan songs is confusing. Dylan never officially released a song titled "General Discussions". Why do we have a "General Discussions" area if he never released a song about it... :?

Maybe the space between tracks on each Dylan album is there for you to generally discuss amongst yourselves?

Perhaps so...

But I still feel a Dylan Forum should only name the topics after Dylan songs (or in some cases, I would allow for a phrase from a song).
