Ah yeah, I guess requests really are a problem everywhere. Perhaps it was selfish of me to just ask for a sticky on /mu/.
seems to have a lot of veiled requests like "glasses thread GO!", where
the OP posts one or two pictures, but then nothing else in the hope of
getting his or her request filled. I tend to leave those threads alone
because they almost always turn into a quality thread eventually with
50+ posts. I hope that is the right thing to do. I try to get rid of
really obvious requests though.
/r/ is a good idea and I bet that it helps things on other boards.
Maybe I should start doing that. Of course, it won't fix things on /mu/,
since requesting commercial music is always against the rules.
