I applauded this addition since it has potential to keep DJ conversations and questions out of the LAB, Lounge and Basement.

In absolute agreement.  This is guaranteed to be a problem.

It will be like going to the zoo-to stare at the animals and what they "feed" on.

This way we can keep them all together.

Look at it this way, we can educate the DJ's as to the errors of their ways.

I've been around many DJ's who know what they're doing. I do believe many of them are very passionate about pro audio, but have limited guidance. I welcome this addition!
It's always been a bit discouraging to see how fellow engineers treat DJ's. Just remember, we all asked stupid questions at one point in our career and most of us still do.....
The DJ world of sound is very different than ours an many ways. We're now seeing hi quality sound systems that are designed for electronic music specifically, and they're run by people who know what they're doing......

My 2 cents

Of course I'm trying to understand DJ, Lighting and ProAV being part of "Sound Reinforcement" and "Live Sound" when Church Sound is not.  Maybe the general organization could be a bit better.

I agree and disagree... we don't need DJs hanging around the LAB forums. But they show up anyway.  A dedicated forum creates a place to move those DJ posts.

Nobody HAS to read or post in the DJ section if they don't want. If you like DJs and want to educate them, this is a good place to do it. If you don't, just don't read it!

Well, I guess if it keeps them from posting in the Lab or lounge, then fair enough.  However there does seem to be plenty of specialist DJ forums about so whether we should encourage DJs to post here by setting up a dedicated DJ area is somthing i'm not so sure about...

Just my opinion.

That's like saying there are also plenty of specialist audio forums around the web, why encourage soundfolks to post here?

We placed a DJ forum here for a few reasons.

The first is that many audio folks actually do some type of DJing either as a side job to their main business, or as a part of their main business, or they work with a DJ now and again. Quite a few members of PSW do DJing as a part of their business, Myself now included.  Recently I have added DJing for corporate parties as I was tired of watching my clients hire a separate DJ company for the dance portion after the event. Since I could not tear down my stuff until the DJ stopped and the event was over, I figured as long as I am at the gig, I might as well make the extra bucks and play some music.

The second reason was we got tired of all the bitching on the live sound forums as soon as a DJ asked for advice. Labsters would say "There are tons of DJ forums on the web, go over to one and leave us live sound guys alone". The problem was that the other DJ forums were full of DJs with little to no real knowledge of audio, electronics, acoustics, electricity, physics, business, etc so a DJ wanting to talk tech and get some real answers and knowledge had nowhere to go (until now that is!)

Last, we started the forum because one of the mods here at PSW told me he has a "vinyl fetish"  I assumed he was talking about records!  hehehehe  ::)
