Is it just me, or do you also have a feeling that this place has turned to a playground recently?

Recently?

The simple solution is to choose which posts to participate in and duck out when they take a wrong turn.

Not more than usual. smile

Although maybe I've just been fortunate not to click on some things....

BTW I've sometimes thought of that metaphor too, because there's one member in particular who likes to throw mud on things.

Be the change you want to see. Start interesting topics and make substantive contributions. Above all: ignore whoever you don't like. Because of the way the forum lists its topics, any attention you give them provides energy to the childish, the petty, the name-callers.

Hakki, this seems rather bitchy of you.

Like any discussion board, there is a signal to noise ratio, no surprise there.

When there is a topic I feel I have something concrete to contribute, I post. But sometimes certain topics are just a way of having fun, sort of relaxing, so why miss out? That can be fun too!

I also find it interesting that a number of members who I respect -gooddog, Mark, Kuanpiano, beet31425, Frycek (I don't have a history with the others)- have posted here.

Hakki, not to worry. I always read your posts, and thank-you for being a member here. thumb

As the others above have said...pick and choose what topics you participate in. And help keep the level of discussion high by starting quality topics. I mostly read these days, but every once in a while I have something to start a topic about. laugh

I'm new here so I don't know what it was like before, but I kind of like the feel this forum has. Granted, the forums I've participated in the most previously to this are the Rap & Hip-hop and Rock & Pop sections of Yahoo Answers, a couple of Guitar Hero forums, and a forum for playing mafia online (it's a popular logic game, more often played in person). So I'm probably used to this absence of uptightness.
I mean I just posted a topic about iTunes organization that had nothing to do with the section I posted it in, really, but I felt like I was in the right when someone came in the thread just to ask me how it relates to playing the piano at all. Call me an iconoclast.

Makes sense -- mafia has always relied on 'logic,' often very much in person. grin

OK, but I might forget sometimes and call you evilpacman. ha

I remember when I first learned the word (in school) -- it was exciting because a few days later, they had it on Jeopardy.

Pianist playground would serve alliterative purposes nicely. Maybe someone should change that.

There used to be a forum here at PW for off-topic discussions; it was closed down. If this forum is inundated with enough off-topic threads, maybe it will get shut down, too.

Entropy does seem to be more noticeable here recently. PW needs to do its part in contributing to the heat death of the universe, I suppose.

I don't agree. At least I haven't noticed it.

Anyway "noticed entropy" would be a hard thing to measure. grin

Worrying about the pianist corner sub-forum of pianoworld.com shutting down because of a perceived degradation of quality in posting is just slightly inane.

But I'm the arbiter of deconstruction, maybe that's just what I want you to believe. Maybe I just want to be the joker to your batman, the Satie to your Debussy, the C.P.E. to your J.S.

Heh. Given how huge the PWverse will be by then, "inundated" is hardly the word I would use.

Sheeesh, I just ruined my own bad joke.

But seriously, do you think protons decay?

I'm kind of in a weird mood. It's monday and I have to get back to being productive after playing Halo and watching movies all weekend while I was not practicing so my wrist could heal.

No experimental evidence yet, but if any of the GUT's are actually proven to be true (hopefully), it has to exist, depressing as that might be.
