The last article in the mpc forums is from July 1st. This is more than dead.

Isn't it time to remove the direct links to mpc forums? mpc is like a dead limb in ha.

I guess that the original demand isn't to forbid any discussion about muepack but to remove two forums that are now totally deserted. MPC format was very active in the beginning of HA.org, with heavy development (thanks to Frank Klemm) and a growing community of users. Activity on forums about MPC was very intense, on par with MP3, Vorbis and even bigger than for AAC.

Nowadays it's very different. MPC has no developer anymore, less and less users on this board (from 35% of HA community in the first poll to 12% in the most recent one) and no reactivity at all. Posting an issue with the format becomes pointless because nothing changes in fact.

The situation has therefore completely change since HA.org beginning and the original organisation of the different forums. In this new context having two forums dedicated to this format looks overkill. There are more questions and threads about flac or wavpack in one week than threads posted on HA about MPC in 6 months. But there's only one forum for all lossless formats but two for the lone MPC. How relevant is this?

I'm also partisan to reorganize a bit the forums organisation. The place for new MPC discussions belongs to "other audio codecs", among atrac, wma and other less-popular formats on HA.org.
The lossless forum could eventually be divided into three categories: two for the most popular ones in this board (FLAC and WAVPACK) and a third one for all other lossless formats.


@halb27> MPC debates are not very always high quality ones. Ad the part of "questionable" threads is proportionaly as big for mpc than for other formats (look on first page of each mpc forums and count the "moved topics", and the productive ones like "amazing speed", "no more MPC", "after the PC donation", various transcoding questions, etc... wink.gif

I see. That's a good point.
So maybe it's the best option to have mpc related posters use the 'other codec section' as you proposed.
