Ah diversity. As long as there were neither politics nor religion slipping in it might fly.

Problem is snowberries to apples to oranges to mangos and figs.

Diversity of opinion in music is an intellectual exercise, the political/religious/anthropological end is just not reconcilable, for it rarely involves intellect, but environmental factors that cause strife. What is acceptable in one culture, is totally unacceptable in another.

As was once pointed out to me, "who cares what some igloo dwelling seal killer commie country dweller thinks, you owe your lives to" ...,ah you get my point I'm sure.

Nice idea, I would probably ignore it....

lol..........

Enjoyed your use of verbose language to describe your apprehension regarding a live chat forum. I agree that anytime people have an opportunity to express their fears, feelings, woes, insights, religious and political positions, they will jump in with both feet. At the same time I wonder how much of your tongue was buried in your cheek during your response.

I would try to refrain from getting involved in that type of discussion and if most users did the same, then the jumper inners would soon get back to the subject of PG music or at least music. I'd like to see it be a totally off-topic chat forum.

Those who would ignore the chat forum would slowly but consistantly be lured in with the titillating conversation and wealth of personalities available with which to discuss music related issues, or as you point out religious or political issues. I'd rather discuss religious issues with a fellow musician than with a tv evangelist.

Enjoyed your post.

Gee Mac nice try reviving a December 08 thread with 3 posts and doing it on April Fools Day. Tongue in cheek, geez, mine is there a lot, unless I can find my glasses so I can look for my dentures. Usually by then I forget why I wanted them, and don't know where the car keys are so I just go back to the piano...then I realize I'm out of rye whiskey, but that's for Sunday, and I end up in the kitchen so I make a coffee, when i really went to look at the caledar to decide what day it is.

+1 for a Chat room, with a BIG splash screen saying>No Politics, etc.

What a great way for forum members to share information in real time!

Not the shooting thing again. That's not the calibre of discussion I'd expect.

I'd have to talk in my sleep!
Most of you guys are between Five to Eight hours behind me ;0)
OR.... We'd need two! A US/CANADA chat and a UK/European chat...

Night night,

Very cool suggestion. I think it's not possible to create a chat room here. Great programmers are everywhere.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser!

From there, simply type in your query, or choose from the long list that appears in the Feature Browser window. If you're typing it in, you'll see that list change to only show the results that could fit your search - once you find what you're looking for, you can read more about it when you choose [Manual], if there's a video for the feature you can choose [Video] to view it, OR - if you don't need to read about the feature and just want to USE it, choose [Do it] and you're all set!
