Hahaa, I take it as a compliment :-p
Oh, I was wondering where that had gone...I dont want to be a pain or anything but I just think in the section it was in it had more potetial to gain publicity (what i'm tryng to do, aswell as promote my new music).
I'll try and explain my reasoning for your (and everyone elses's) benefit, Gary.
We noticed a definite trend of more and more youngsters joining up and starting topics for their own music. In itself, this is a very good, positive, and happy turn of events! We love young players, none more than Granny Cathy!
Once we decided to create the sticky for the very purpose of encouraging and fostering the interchange of ideas and comments amongst yourselves, and between the rest of us and you youngsters, I could envisage a situation whereby quite a number of the topics towards the top of Other Artists would be your topics, while we also had the sticky, in which you would presumably be posting the same links and work. This would work to the detriment of all the other artists who have topics, and create redundant posting.
Hence, I thought it would be a better and neater (I'm kind of anal like that, sorry ) idea to just have the sticky here, and to have existing personal topics down in Old. Try and look at it this way - Old is just another part of the forum; none of the topics are locked, and anyone is free to post down there. If you all know that your 'own' topics are in there, you can always access them if required.
To be clear, this was my idea, not Cathy's or anyone else's. I played it like I saw it, with absolutely no intention of causing any damage to any of you. I am certainly not infallible. What I decided is not written in stone, and I am always open to persuasion by reasonable argument. If you all think that what I did is a really bad move, let me know.
In the meantime, please humo(u)r me guys, and let's give this a try. If it turns out that I have somehow miscalculated and that this is a bad move, I will be happy to reverse it.
RIP Iron Man
