No major rules, just make sure that all content is music related.
Interesting concept! I wish I knew more local artists so that I could make a contribution. Perhaps people could post city names, and others could respond with bands/artists local to that area.
That's a good idea and I'm sure there are many good people from the area that would be willing to fulfill those requests and many others that would be willing to dive into the scene to look for them. I do like the idea though.
A few immediate concerns going that route:
1. the page could get flooded with unfulfilled requests or empty content that will bring the overall quality down. I do want people doing a little bit of research on their own so they can contribute to any kind of conversation that may follow.
2. do you think a lot of people would be into that 'reverse search' as in requesting a city? One use I can see is someone that is interested in a local scene but does not know where to begin. Yeah, I like that. For discovery's sake, I think that would be a good thing to implement.
Thanks for your input! Anything else that may come to mind, there is now a stickied post at /t/localmusic asking for input, so please feel free to check it out and weigh in on anything else!
