Nonesense. Read my post above. Any band mentioned in the "Definition of Prog" at PA were added at the outset.

hence... 'controversial'... the admin team agrees they can wait to decide on Uriah Heep.. and for what it's worth. I agree...

Again, did you even read my post? I made a mistake in calling Heep "proto", but that's about it.

 These aren't really Proto anything, they are early Metal bands. Maybe you could bring a "specialist" into the debate?

This is a Metal Music Database not a Metal Music Mag. What is important, for the database, is an accurate record and history that people will find useful as a research resource. Otherwise you have nothing better to offer than what is already available elsewhere.

preaching to the choir.. Clap.  You know what I think of these sites being 'archival' in nature..as opposed to being just reflections of a select few's opinion.  They'll be added... but understand what the site is trying to do... get people other than PA'rs to join.  That means an emphasis on real metal.. and you know exactly what I mean by that.

Again, we'll focus on METAL first, proto and borderline cases second. That decision has been reached. We want to attract METAL fans to this website. Uriah Heep may have been called metal back in 1900 if you want, they're not a METAL band. Soon, we have a database that's complete enough, we'll focus on cases like this. Again, once we have put an emphasis on this website's actual main genre.

one day eventually UH could get here, which I am ok about, but as others say the metal bands need sorting out first.

The problem is simply for me: Banana is not an apple!!! WinkTongueLOLBig smileShocked!!!

I didn't hurry. However, this case is illustrative of Proto Metal. Use aptitude or real musical expression to judge what is or isn't Proto Metal? (Which, then, is actually a real genre?)

I think neither is an emergency for inclusion
 
Heep seems fine for quick addition and Hawkwind can wait a few months (or years)
 
as Raff says >> not now

Alberto, this is NOT PA, and we have members who are not PA members. We Admins have already had our say as concerns this kind of suggestions, but we did so without putting down the person who suggested them. The tone of your post is unnecessarily belligerent, and we don't need stuff like that in the early days of the site.

Edit: Anyway, since we have made it clear that this is not the time to start evaluating anything potentially controversial, we have decided to close these threads for the time being, since they will not get any attention from the genre teams, yet may cause unnecessary tension among forum members. We will reopen them when the time is right.
