Hi Music boards team,
For those who don’t recognise me (I’m not in too many music threads), I’m one of your friendly moderation team.
As is usual on the social boards, we’ve been going through a period of realising that the forums aren’t as friendly and welcoming as we’d like them to be. A number of users have left recently for some unpleasant reasons and we want to put in place some things to improve the DiS community for everyone and make it a more pleasant place to join.
But Drowned In Sound isn’t the social boards alone. You’re all part of the same community and in the interests of starting to break down some of the barriers that have always existed between the two big boards of DiS we’d want to make sure you’re all included rather than dictated to by the social board masses.
There’s a thread pinned to the top of the social boards where we’re starting to collect and discuss ideas and changes we’d like to make (Making DiS a safer space: next steps). If you have the time and/or you’re interesting in helping the DiS community become better together then please dive in - and if you have some thoughts but you’re less keen on sharing publicly then let me or any other moderator know and we can share on your behalf. Your other mods are currently.
