I'm in favor of having an articles section> I'm a member of a dulcimer site that is to the dulcimer world what This site is to banjos and the articles are very popular. It helps people learn things without having to do so much archived thread searches.

Thanks for considering this

It sounds like a good idea. As far as pay is concerned, I am sure there will be enough of both volunters and those seeking pay. I have written for a couple of magazines and wrote a newpaper column for my church for a number of years. As a writer some of us just look for a place to show our ability and some want to make it a way of living. To me it is just plane fun to help create something others will benifit from.

I think this would be a great addition to the site.

Informative articles can be a huge asset. However, the articles must be well written, flow easily and not be so overladened by adjectives that we lose the writers intent. Pay them so you can fire them without guilt. There are a lot of frustrated want-to-be writers out there and like every other profession there are those that excel. Not being critical but you've seen the local TV car dealer ads and you've seen the professionally produced ads, 'nough said.

I think that would be great, and very informative!

Please......lets keep the "news" limited to the music and it's makers and not have it turn into an advertising vehicle for manufacturers to announce their latest products.

I think articles would be a great ideal. Currently alot of my banjo news I get from WWB (world wide bluegrass) but it has news on everything not just Banjo information. It would also be informative to read an article on say finger/thumb picks, string types or bridges more in depth information on Banjo accessories. Something that is non-bias like Bobw said. I assume this is the kind of things the articles would be about?

I like this idea... sort of a BNL on the web but more focused on what readers want and without ads. I don't know if you can do this but can you add a section to this site that contains performers' schedules? You'd probably have to add names to this list based upon reader input but I can't tell you how many times I read about a performer, want to go, but see that it is sold out. For example, Steve Martin is coming to Utah in June and I just found out yesterday through one of those free city newspapers. It's already sold out. Or maybe I don't find out about the concert until it's over. Maybe have a section for festivals also. Thanks - m
