Just thinking aloud...
I hope you don't think I'm getting too big for my boots, but I was thinking of ways to add to the forums and basically I came up with the following 2 ideas:
The upload thread:
Obviously not my original idea, but new to GN would be a thread where you can make requests for completely legal copies of music such as live performances (unreleased as CD or DVD). This will particularly include covers and improv which is a good bonus.
The other side to the upload thread is that you can just upload your own pieces or other board members pieces of work should they be worthy of extra recognition or what have you.
*PS I forgot what the second idea was whilst typing, but I'm sure it'll come to me :D
