Do you really want to limit it to pre 1990? Lets bump it up to 1997.. like ten years ago? What do you think? Xsxex 11:37, 2 February 2007 (CST)

In the About Page I kind of "bumped up" the cutoff date to Naked Raygun's breakup in 1992. Nothing is really formal, but I'd prefer most of the info to deal with bands that got their start in the 80s or early 90s. I'm not really going to stop anyone from making pages, but for now there's so much to add for the early scene that I'd prefer to keep the scope there. If things keep taking off the way they have been (thanks Patrick and Bryan K!) then I'll likely expand the scope later on and include more of the 90s scene. Gantry 12:51, 2 February 2007 (CST)

Just for the record, even though i love old punk, new punk is still touring and artists careers are out there so i would have thought it would be equally important to get new bands names out there. just a thought. Dr tv

I love new punk as well, but the current bands have TONS of sites devoted to them. Not to mention that if this site started focusing on newer bands, people would come in simply to promote their own band. My intention for this site is to get info on bands that have little-to-no presence on the Internet, I don't think people are going to come here to look up new bands since they all have MySpace pages, people actively promoting them online via message boards, music sites and the like.

Woah, looks like its been quite a while since I've last logged in. This website is still a really awesome resource. As I've aged, I think I've matured slightly, and I think I understand where Gantry is coming from, however, I do think that since this site does seem to have become somewhat stagnant in recent years, and does need some updating, maybe it is time to extend the year parameters a bit. Maybe through 1998, wihch is 15 years ago? Or how about 1993, 20 years ago? Also, I think its probably time to make a facebook page for this site, and try to renew interest and get more content. Actually thinking about it more, I think 1993 is a good cut-off year, 20 years being a good amount of time for any phenomenon to become "vintage" enough to be included with the rest of the Chicago Punk Rock history.
