Music For Picture forum ... kiss of death for subforms?

I think the game forum is basically dead, and the immersive forum seems to have died right off the bat. I don't think anyone in the main music forum has posted in the immersive forum, even though 50% of the work is moving to games and immersive stuff ... I guess all they want to talk about is licensing and legal stuff. I think these new area's are having the largest growth for people that want to make money, actually be profesional ... and having the groups basically dead being under music (????) really puts my viewpoint on gearlsutz in a weird light.

I've been here almost 5 years, loved the discussions, but if immersive sound and games are dead at gearslutz, I'll visit gearslutz for amuzement everynow and then, but really have to go somewhere else to grow profesionally. Theirs a lot of great people here so I find it confuzing why people want to talk about things that don't pay or where the industry is in decline vs where the industry is exploding. Also since a lot of us either work in a company under salary(for game company, etc) or work at home there's very little spots to hang out physically aside from the conferences which I've been to busy to go recently.

Hi Patrick,

I fully agree with you.The immersive audio section shouldn´t be a sub forum, even less under music for picture, as most immersive audio has nothing to do with music only.
Considering the growing importance of immersive audio and formats like Auro 3D, DTX X, Dolby Atmos and the tech evolution both in software and hardware that support these formats, I really would like to see it as a normal forum item.

Forum managers, please consider this.
