Sounds like you two are big into the community. Why Discogs over AllMusic?
No reason really, I never did an in-depth comparison (though a quick test does suggest discogs finds some more hits)

Re: AllMusic and Discogs

As they are for selling your music I have never bought anything from those sites, but I regularly use discogs because they are very good at keeping track of on which records individual artists appear.

Re: 'Thanks for posts' plugin for phpBB3

I like it, but we're on 3.3.0 and the plugin is for 3.2.x. Feel free to ping me when a new version comes out.

Re: Upgrades

For some reason the icons sometimes look blurry. Reloading generally fixes it. I'll attach screenshots below. (For reference, I'm viewing on Firefox ESR, on Debian Testing.) screenshot1.pngscreenshot2.png I *think* that's just the theme getting a facelift, so the 'blurry' icons are cached images fr...

Re: "Mark as Read" button for individual threads on Unread Posts page

I'm not planning to do any original phpbb development, but you you know of a phpbb extension that provides this functionality I'd be happy to have a look if it can be enabled.

Upgrades

The forum could use some various upgrades. I'm looking into this this evening, possibly there will be some unavailability while the forum is migrated to another host, or you may see the forum in readonly mode.

Re: NixOS and music: Experiences?

Interesting! I've also been switching to NixOS lately and am pretty happy with their approach, though I haven't done any music stuff on this machine yet.

Yes, unfortunately to combat spam the first few posts for each user need to be manually approved - we prevent quite a bit of spam reaching the forum that way. We try to do it quickly and after a couple of posts it'll be automatic ;)

Re: soundcloud spam

Might be nice to rename the topic to something like 'soundcloud spam' and remove references to the spammer, so we don't encourage them? ;)

Re: Sections for other languages

What about having sections for other languages than English? This forum has users from all over the world. Local forums often are doomed to fail, because it's hard to promote them, especially when there is no existing userbase. For this reason, I make this proposal. There are more people who can't ...

Do you have experience with this social platform or are you just sharing it?
Not yet, just came across it and shared because it seemed interesting.
