What's never been clear to me is where the line blurs between Reaper-specific and more generalized audio recording subject matter. Virtually anyone who would be interested in Reaper and in these forums will almost certainly be interested in KVR-like and Gearslutz-like topics as well, many of which currently end up in the lounge next to the serial killers and the corrupt politicians...

Why not have the current Reaper General Discussion and Reaper Compatibility forums, and then add a Digital Audio General Discussion forum to cover all of the DAW-but-not-exactly-Reaper content that currently goes into the lounge? Then everyone can know that if we opt not to login to the lounge we won't miss anything interesting or newsworthy that is audio-related.
I agree with this idea.

We'd still need a place for asking specific Reaper questions. No?
