my bad, i guess you could call me a veteran listener but a newbie poster. I didn't realize that there was so much flaming on these boards of our remixing community. I was actually posting that topic in an attempt to find out what other people liked so that just in case there was something i hadnt sampled already, my search for good remixes would be helped along. In any case, I see good reason in disallowing such topics now that I've thought it through more. Thanks for not flaming.

Well, if there's something specific you were looking for, you could try more like "piano mix recommendations."

Due to the recent "flux" (or "influx" or however you want to put it) of newer people (I prefer to use the politically correct term for "newbies" :wink: ) I am helping to preserve this thread/sticky by posting.

That's what moderators are for. We'll lock or delete the thread if needed. Editing the subject and first post doesn't make it all good again.

Since we lost one of the sticky thread again, I felt the need to bump this.

There is a very easy way to prevent favorites threads being made. Just sticky ONE "favorite remix" thread in GD. At several anime sites I frequent, people don't create favorites threads because one already exists as a sticky.

The problem is we don't want any favourite remix fullstop, as we don't want to hurt the feelings of remixers etc.

OMG THERE IT IS!!!!

Huh. I hadn't noticed that. I'm so used to these few threads being stickies, it had become almost instinctual to bump them after the last couple months. Nice to see they've been given a more permanent status.

Well, since it has vanished yet again, here's the third version of this thread.

For those of you coming here for the first time, this is just a friendly request to avoid making a "favorite remix/remixer" thread on this site. I'm sure you're wondering "Why?". Well, the answer is pretty simple. Those threads almost always degenerate into flame wars, as they have been done literally hundreds upon hundreds of times (and thusly, everyone is sick of them). Also, those threads usually get the same answers each time, and this can lead to hurt feelings... and yet more flames.

If you feel the urge to divide your OCR collection up into the "WOW!" and "HOW'D THIS GET ON THE SITE?!" categories, please do so on your hard drive, and not on the site itself.

Moderator edit:
We're broadening this to favorite stuff threads in general. They have the nasty habit of causing flamewars very fast(along the lines of "U IDIOT TAHT GAEM/SYSTEM SUX BALLZ") Same goes for those silly "Who would win?" threads actually. There's no winners in those, only losers. Not to mention that in most cases it's impossible to determine who'd win, since it's all based on opinion anyways ;).


Sorry to re-quote everything you wrote coop but i just want to agree on the fact that favorite topics do lead to flame wars and feelings being hurt. so pretty much, it's not a bad idea to ban favorite threads at all.

Ahahaha, so this must be why I was banned. But mine was a joke. Maybe that means double-ban? Oh well, no regrets, learn from your mistakes, etc.
