SPECIAL INTEREST FORUM:
To give new platform for related discussion and information, I’m happy to announce launch of new forum. www.special-interests.net/forum/ is launched to public in January 2010. Forum is open to read by any visitor. Posting messages is restricted to registered members. Unlike most forums on genre, this is actually limited exclusively for discussion of SOUND and Visual Art. It is aimed to cover the styles what magazine covers, and with relative “seriousness” like its in magazine. There are no sections of miscellaneous music or random daily chatting. Such must happen elsewhere. Intent is to create resource site, where any fanatic of the sound can read about subject matter without being disturbed by negative effects of usual www forums. From forum you can find additional review sections with many of the same writers who contribute to paper magazine. Also plenty of other exclusive content, including overviews on complete discographies of labels and artists. We will see how and which direction forum develops.
Every section of board has rules & guidelines you are adviced to read to know restrictions and general policy. Due spam bots, accounts that seem dubious are deleted once in a while. To ensure your account stays there, please fill profile information enough to indicate there is real person behind it. To view message & join, go to: www.special-interests.net/forum/
