The guitars.stackexchange site did not make it out of public beta. As such, we have closed that site and folded the content into music.stackexchange. Rep associated with these posts has been transferred over as well.

These questions have been imported as-is, so they could use some fresh eyes to look over them, make sure they are tagged appropriately, etc. A list is included below. Pick some random ones from the list, as many as you want, and take a look at them.

You can also look at questions which are untagged: https://music.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/untagged

If anyone has any troubles with their accounts matching up with content imported from the old site, please post a new question here on the meta and we will help you out.

For a few days, it will seem like this site is being dominated by guitar questions, but recall that prior to this import, the site was not dominated by guitar questions. A form of balance will work itself out once these questions get looked at and aren't getting bumped as people clean up the import.

  • now I see.. I was wondering why so many guitars questions popping up this morning – Sufendy May 28 '11 at 4:30
  • I think that not all badges have been carried over. There will probably a rep recalc some time in the near future? – ogerard May 29 '11 at 14:06
  • I noticed that the Jtab plugin hasn't come over in the merger, will there be a more general musical replacement, will we need to re-add the tabs in answers? – Bella May 29 '11 at 14:49
  • @ogerard I think a site-wide recalc was already done, I had my rep from Guitars added immediately after the import. I also did a recalc for myself manually (you can do it here) and there was no change. – Matthew Read May 30 '11 at 14:36
  • @Matthew : I thought that because I saw several top former Guitar users with several bronze badges but no silver badges, and I presumed it was a calculation/migration artefact. – ogerard May 30 '11 at 15:28

    @ogerard Oh, I somehow totally missed your mention of badges. I would assume there is no plan to import badges, but badges related to the info still attached to the questions (e.g. "Nice Answer" for 10+ upvotes) should have been caught by the automagic script. I'd suggest flagging the post in question if you notice the user doesn't have the appropriate badge for it. – Matthew Read May 30 '11 at 15:35
  • @Matthew, @Rebecca : After looking more closely, there are badges missing corresponding to enlightened, and Beta: you cannot have the enlightened badge if accepted flag were not imported. Also the Beta badge/Precog badge are specific to the private beta of this site so were not recalculated for private beta members of Guitar. This will also be a problem for Yearling. For instance jduv is seen as member for 37 days but he signed up for Guitar before that. – ogerard Jun 1 '11 at 13:01
  • @ogerard I would say that site-specific badges like that should not be carried over, even if the old site is basically a subset of this one. We want to encourage them to do the same good work for this site as they did for the old one. Their previous work is recognized by rep and the non-site-specific badges. – Matthew Read Jun 1 '11 at 13:38

Additionally, it looks like accepted answers were not carried over. Those of you who come here from Guitars, or already were here, please evaluate whether you wish to re-accept the answer you did before or wait for new answers, and proceed accordingly.

I've retagged a bunch of them. And I'm positive that folks will probably decide that different tags would have been better choices, so go for it.

And don't be shy, you'll get an Organizer badge for your first retag.
