Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

Ok, to summarise:

There was a Zurich Concerts thread, people weren't happy and made a General concerts thread. Then people weren't happy because gigs in their area were getting lost in the big General concerts thread, so there was a Zurich concerts thread... People still weren't happy so there was a Concerts forum created.

People still weren't happy because they could only discuss a particular concert in a thread, so there was a Zurich concerts thread... then the non Zurich people got pissed off...


FFS people, no one is going to be happy all the time. Its not the end of the world, get off your high horses (Did Hsiang ever find out where to procure one?) and go to whatever concerts you want to. If a gig is in Zurich why can't the people that live in Zurich discuss it in a Zurich based thread. If they were going to go to a gig in Luzern I'm sure they wouldn't object to it being in a Luzern gigs thread.

I think a certain amount of "cop the f**K on" is needed here.

Actually the old Zurich concert threads served well for all concerts in the country, because most concerts happen in Zurich, there were no other threads. I thought a title change would be appropriate to reflect the actual content of the thread, but obviously, that was just too much.

Well then you should have left well enough alone and not tried to fix what was not broken.

But why on earth do you guys have to have these general threads why not simply create an individual thread for each concert and discuss the specifics there.

That was Nathu's aim when he created the Concerts calendar.

This reminds of procedural language programmers who couldn't understand object-oriented programming: Now every concert is one object.

Because maybe they don't want to!

You are still perfectly entitled to post the concert in the concerts thread should you so desire.

Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

It's annoying me now how I bang on about it, I understand how some people prefer a single thread and some like the events, but I simply cannot understand why we have 2 seperate stickies simply confusing the issue.

All gigs posted here will be in Switzerland, most will be in Zurich, why is it so hard to not have a single thread with a title that accurately reflects the contents "Upcoming Concerts" or some such, then acts will be picked up by all who might not otherwise consider a trip out of town. Instead we have 2 threads, or one thread with an inaccurate title.

Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

Now that 50% of the dissenters have annoyed themselves, can we move to the next part of this thread cycle please?

Zurich gig posted -> thread users discuss music -> martin34 & cyrus crack the sh1ts over regionalism -> thread users discuss thread -> long period of silence -> thread users think it safe -> Zurich gig posted -> thread users discuss music -> martin34 & cyrus crack the sh1ts over regionalism ->

Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

Er, I support the use of the Concerts Calendar - which should be merged with the main calendar IMO; let's have a huge 'What's On' section with overview - rather than having lots of different threads.

There was some arcane rule about not posting an event on the calendar if you weren't intending to attend; surely that's not necessary? Should there be a concert, is it not easier to have it on the calendar? One concert has no relevence to any other and threads like this spin outta control... although something is better than nothing.

And it's Zürchers, not Zürichers

Oh yes, above it all aren't we? but can't possibly post to a concerts thread without Zurich being in the title.

Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

right i have to dash off to catch a flight very shortly but as an interim would it make everyone happy if I merge this thread with the Switzerland Gig Guide thread and just have the one thread from now on

The Zurich guide i really don't think was created intentionally to p!ss off Cyrus and Martin but it seems to have done anyway and I think they'll be banging on about it until the cows come home, so I'll merge and we'll just have one generic thread - which will eliminate their the 'them and us' belief

Agreed?

Can I now be picky and ask for it to be renamed "Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up" or "Switzerland Gigs Discussion" or "Switzerland Rough Gig Guide"? Cos it aint a gig guide.
