    IEM are becoming more and more the norm lately and there are a lot of question regarding the use of them, I have read a lot of the threads about IEM and still a lot of questions. I should just create a thread with my question, but so many of them start with " yes, another IEM question"
    My question is do you think it would be worth while to have a sub-forum just for IEM?

    No- we don't get nearly enough threads on the subject to warrant a subforum. The more subforums there are for more and more specific things, the less readers each subforum has, which leads to a dearth of discussion and can make forum "ghost towns" (anyone remember the Dude Pit?) Less popular items such as IEMs actually get more viewers/discussion in forums like Live Sound than they would in their own forums.

    Don't be disrespecting the Dude Pit. It was a great forum with a whole lot less BS than I've seen on other bass forums

    It also, near the end, had a ton of barely used forums with little discussion due to over-subdividing.

    The issues with Dude Pit were largely due to family illness of the founder. At least, there, one could express a qualified opinion and it was respected as such
     
  7. I liked the Pit, but it kept relocating on about a weekly basis and it became a ghost town.

    I have never had the pleasure of Dude Pit, but you do make some good points, that I have not considered.
    Thanks for taking the time to respond.

    Live Sound would be the sub forum IMO

    IEM discussions are very much related to live sound, so that's where they go.
