What do you guys think about having another room in the forum just for Hip Hop related threads only?

We have the main Old School Board for anything Old School. We have the lounge for anything and everything you can think of, but I think a lot of us are interested in reading the Hip Hop related threads for news and info on anything Hip Hop. If we had a strictly Hip Hop discussions room, maybe it'd draw more readers.

We could keep the lounge for anything else. It's just a thought, nothing I'm married to, but what do you guys think about the idea? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

I've thought about doing some other forums from time to time. Just wasn't sure what the needs were.

I'll give it some thought and certainly look for any suggestions.

I just posted a poll about this in the Lounge. We'll see what the people want.

While I think the intentions are sound and the idea looks good at first, I think that once a couple of forums pop up that don't relate to the main focus of the site, then you have the danger of losing focus on what oldschoolhiphop.com is about in the first place. I think it's fine for OSHH.com to do what it does best and remain being the best at what it sets out to achieve, it's not that there aren't other forums out there that cater for new hip hop or x topic that someone wants a forum about.

Maybe a good way to incorporate some new hip hop within OSHH.com would be to maybe entertain a section that concentrates on artists from the old school and what they're working on now, as in new CDs, gigs etc.. That to me would fit in with what oldschoolhiphop.com is all about more than 40 threads about Jay-Z vs. Eminem. Mind you, being that Dr. Dre could fit in both areas it becomes apparant that even this might still not as easy in practice as in theory.

Which brings me back to why the general forum is the perfect place for all non-old skool chat while keeping simplicity.
