Alright, if you look at the first couple pages of the General Music forum, you'll see Megathreads for bands such as Periphery, AAL, Born of Osiris, Devin Townsend, After the Burial... all bands that a LOT of people on this forum talk about on a regular basis. However, right near the top of the forum (as of my writing this), there is a "megathread" for a band called Northlane. ...huh? The fact that I've never heard this band's material is totally beside the point. What DOES matter is that I've literally never seen a discussion about this band in the past. I see there are a couple other threads for this band currently on the first page, but certainly nothing major. The kicker is of course that this "MEGATHREAD" only has 15 posts, not even 2 pages. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't the point of a Megathread to keep things clean, because otherwise there would be SO many threads about a certain topic that it take up a significant portion of forum real estate? If that's the case, how on earth can we possibly having a MEGATHREAD for a band that, in 5 years of posting here, I've never seen any other discussion about? The point is that I think the concept behind a MEGATHREAD isn't something that should be tossed about by just anyone, because it diminishes it. Hell, I could go and make an Elton John Megathread and it would make a lot more sense than some of the other Megathreads floating around. In a nutshell, I believe that the creation/formation of a Megathread should be a decision best left to the mods. Discuss!
