Pretty much, yeah.

We'd have to decide on what the stipulations are on a band being eligible to be added.

Do they have to be based in the Atlanta area? Or just Georgia in general?

If they're based somewhere else in Georgia but play Atlanta a bunch are they eligible?

Do they have to be "metal" or are bands like In Ruins and Dernier Combat eligible?

Should we do the same stipulation as M-A that you have to have a physical release to be eligible or since it's local maybe have the stipulation be that you have to have played at least one show OR have a physical release to be added?

Thoughts?

i think that since metal-archives is just that - an archive of all metal, the "physical release" thing flies over there. But here, I think just playing a show should be enough.

as well as In Ruins and Dernier Combat, I could deal with In Ruins being on it because they're super heavy, and I think a band like Dernier Combat could work since it features Matt from Living Decay, but other than that I say keep metal metal

I agree. Mostly I just want to keep the bedroom/bullshit stuff outta here.

I feel like if you're not putting out a physical release or playing shows then it's probably not something worth remembering or keeping a record of here.

but I should also say I think Stickies on the "bands" section is AOK with me, or honestly just leaving it how it is

having stickies for the specific band threads would be nice in the meantime for sure.

There's some stuff in the works that'll be made known soon.

I doubt there will be specific criteria. It'll just be up to the better judgment of Tommy, Amanda, and myself. Not looking to take the fun out of AtlantaMetal or make it a regional M-A -- the board is definitely going to stay the same for the most part. At most, just a new subforum.

And yeah, physical media OR a show is fine. Can't have WAC creeping up in there.

Some forums use Tapatalk. It's not bad at all.

Thanks for all the hard work, y'all. As cool as this place is, it will benefit from some sprucing up.

Would it be possible to change the event calendar into a real calendar format and make it a bit more visible on the front page? I really want to use it as resource more easily and quickly. I think it would bring in more user traffic (and possibly solid forum members) if it jumped out a bit more.

oh hey an important suggestion:

give users the option to delete their own topics.

As far as I know, that isn't really possible without giving users the option to delete other people's topics too. You all know i'm on this site more than I go to the bathroom, just send me a message if you wanna delete something.

Lots of suspicious acocunts being created lately. I have yet to see any open posts, but suspect private message spam. Please let us know here on this thread (or PM Brian or myself) if you recieve any unsolicited private messages that are obviously bogus and we will fucking smite them with the phpBB dildo of The Whore of Babylon.

I have received multiple unsolicited private messages from some forumite under the moniker "Albert Kagan." I expect swift and vigilant justice.

:lol:

@Tommy - I know I'm a bit late but nice work on the upcoming shows thread!

All - now that I'm just over a month into training, I've found that I have a bit more free time. Not a whole lot but definitely more than I had a few weeks ago! (I had NONE then...holy fuck it was nonstop from 5am to 11pm :shock: ) so I can help monitor shit around here again. :mrgreen:
They had you do a drug test and the forgot to test for drugs???
