Q: Do we want to be able to opt-out of the new duplicate hammer?

KevinStackExchange is testing out a new feature that allows owners of gold badges in specific tags to instantly close questions in those tags as duplicates. I know that we've had issues with people being too quick to close questions, so if SE rolls out the new feature network-wide, would we want to be...

@RoryAlsop so you have a band? Is there any youtube video that you know, interesting..
@Dom check out my avatar for Music SE site, and guess the name of the song :D
 
8:13 AM
@aldy505 yep - either check out our best of videos (at metaltech.me then go to the videos tab) or check out our youtube channel ( youtube.com/metaltechtheband ) or facebook (facebook.com/metaltech )
definitely interesting, if you like rock, metal, techno or blues
a couple of them are probably not suitable for work
but the names of the songs will make that pretty obvious
 
8:37 AM
@RoryAlsop where you at? guitar?
 
@aldy505 Yup lead guitar (and fire) - I have the mask with the glowing eyes and cyberlox hair
 
I haven't watch that, I'll watch it later.
So, you're saying that KISS is (kinda) your band's influence?
 
@aldy505 For the visuals - yes (our lead singer is a huge Kiss fan)
for the sound...not so much. My influences are Floyd, Purple, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Clapton etc
Bass influences: Cake, Red Hot Chilli Peppers etc
Drums: Prodigy, club, house, techno...
it's a different combination...

Kinda wierd..
@RoryAlsop the overdrive (that i heard in 'Useless'), not getting sounds into metal. Just kinda noise which I can't hear clearly the riffs.
 
@aldy505 that one was a horrible sound, actually. We have fixed that since (our sound guy on the tour really knew his stuff)
 
@RoryAlsop Well alright hahaha. Have you ever used/tried talkbox with your band?
 
@aldy505 I used to use a talkbox in an old covers band I had, but there are a range of things we don't use with Metaltech. We all have other projects where we use odd things (like theremin, acoustic fretless instruments, violins etc)
 
@RoryAlsop that's not odd. Btw, the Useless in Live infest festival, it's me or the guitars' bass EQ is a bit high?
 
@aldy505 I think on that one it's the quality of the mic recording it :-) For our documentary we obviously used audio from the desk. These videos are mostly taken by audience or staff members
If you listen to our stuff on spotify or iTunes, you can hear what it should be like
 
11:13 AM
@RoryAlsop So, we're not talking about my stuffs eh?
 
@aldy505 ?
 
@RoryAlsop just ignore that one.
 
okay :-)

To anyone who is interested the Music Fan SE proposal has been gaining a lot of traction recently. It currently needs 27 more questions to move on to the committed phase. I personally think it will be a good sister site to this one if it makes it to beta. area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/61574/…
^ Typo it should 27 more questions with a vote of 10 instead of 27 more questions.
 
1:29 PM
Used up my quota of upvotes...
...for Music Fan SE. Should be able to become something good.
 
Dom
1:52 PM
@MeaningfulUsername Yep. It should open up a whole new set of music questions for us.
 
@Dom what do you think about that? Critics on the song arrangement maybe?
 
Dom
@aldy505 In my opinion, it sounded like some parts were too busy. I know it seems strange, but sometimes playing less will give you a better overall sound. It also sounds like some harmonies didn't quite line up the best. Overall it was good, but I will tell you from experience you can always make it better.
 
2:17 PM
@Dom about the performance?
 
Dom
@aldy505 It was very good. Especially how everyone was kind of synced up. The only thing I would critique is try to look at your guitar less. This is a problem for a lot of musicians, but it adds so much to the performance if you look at the crowd instead of your guitar.
