Commonmark migration
May 8 '11 at 19:50 comment added Tamara Wijsman I agree with this, just because you can record A&V doesn't mean you can create a song or a movie.
Apr 27 '11 at 16:06 comment added Lennart Regebro @Matthew: You forget peoples tendency to follow the flow. 7 vs -1? Who is going to look like a fool and vote for -1? :-) But anyway, it doesn't need to be decided now. guitars.SE is likely to be merged here too, but not until the end of the beta period, and the same would go for the migration of recording questions, of course.
Apr 27 '11 at 14:29 comment added user28 @Lennart It should equal out over time. This isn't likely to be resolved soon since it looks like the powers that be want to start AVP soon and see how it pans out.

Apr 27 '11 at 14:23 comment added Lennart Regebro Good idea, done! Too bad I didn't do it from the start, now it will be skewed. Ah well.
Apr 27 '11 at 14:10 comment added user28 @So I think we just have a fundamental difference of opinion, which is fine. Would you mind editing your question to be neutral, and posting your opinion as an answer? That way we can get better community feedback about which option is preferred and why.
Apr 27 '11 at 14:04 comment added Lennart Regebro @Matthew: Yes, you could say that. And I did say that. Except that the natural tag would be "recording", which I mentioned above. :-) Hence, users interested in recording would find it quite easily.
Apr 27 '11 at 14:02 comment added user28 @Lennart Couldn't you also say that if the questions were here, they should be tagged audio-production when relevant so that interested AVP users could find it? I think that would be just as natural as tagging music on the other site. It's not a meta tag either, so I'm not sure I buy the idea than an AVP user asking about recording music wouldn't tag with music or something else useful.
Apr 27 '11 at 13:55 comment added Lennart Regebro @Matthew: How will people, like me, interested in recording music, find the question if it isn't tagged, on a site where most questions are about completely different things?
Apr 27 '11 at 13:48 comment added user28 @Lennart I don't see why the music tag would be necessary. In the rare cases guitars are recorded for completely non-musical purposes that should be specified in the question. Music would be the default assumption.
Apr 27 '11 at 13:46 comment added user28 @Lennart Oh. I wouldn't put it so absolutely, but I do agree that Music Recording and Music overlap more than Music Recording and Video Production. But AVP is not just Video. It will cover Audio Recording, and Music Recording is just a subset of that. I believe the audience for music-less Audio Recording overlaps with the audience for Music Recording strongly, much more than Music Performance/Practice/Theory overlaps with Music Recording.
Apr 27 '11 at 13:45 comment added Lennart Regebro Also, ponder the use of tags. When you have a question about recording a guitar, what tags will you enter? Well, "recording guitar" of course. This means that on this site, filtering out recording questions will be easy. But on an AV site, you would have to also enter the tag "music" on every musical question, a tag that doesn't come natural when asking a question about recording a guitar. Questions about recording music will therefore be hard to find and follow on an AV site.
Apr 27 '11 at 13:38 comment added Lennart Regebro @Matthew: Yes, exactly. The point is that the audiences for Music recording and Video production do not overlap, but that the audiences for Music recording and Music performance do overlap. And therefore Music recording should be a part of this site and not the Video production site.
Apr 27 '11 at 13:31 comment added user28 @Lennart I'm not sure I understand. If the audiences for the Music and AVP sites don't overlap, isn't that a reason to keep them separate? And I don't think recording techniques overlap much with playing techniques, besides obvious things like "muddied playing won't result in a clear recording".
Apr 27 '11 at 13:29 comment added user28 @ChrisS I'm not saying Audio shouldn't be merged, just that it shouldn't be merged with us. I agree that their stats are no good. They'll improve with the AVP site.
Apr 27 '11 at 13:21 comment added Lennart Regebro "There's a huge overlap in the techniques, technology, etc. " - But little overlap in audience. And there is a huge overlap in technique and technology with playing music as well.
Apr 27 '11 at 8:16 comment added Chris S ...using Stackoverflow as an example. There's 400 questions on Audio recording, 450 on [Scrum] in stackoverflow. I know it's been going longer but it's the same niche, in my view.
Apr 27 '11 at 8:09 comment added Chris S Good in theory, however check out the audio recording stats: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/4/… worrying, worrying, worrying. Unfortunately there aren't enough experts out there willing to contribute to, which is why I think there should just be a generic site. If it ever got too big then it could be migrated out like programmers.stackexchange.com

Apr 27 '11 at 2:12 comment added user28 Thank you, good sir.
Apr 27 '11 at 2:07 comment added Robert Cartaino Wow, this is spot on. I put together an answer, but you said it so much clearer than I ever did. I may just cite this post the next time this issue comes up.
