m0le, don't ruin the party man...
Kid, check this thread out (it's linked in the audio forum rules). It explains the album thread guidelines. When in doubt if you can post an album thread, mail one of the BBS mods.
Now, I've already made one album thread on here a while back, so I know it's okay, plus I even asked one of the mods then.
Your thread MAY be locked if...
-you only post in the audio forum like once every three months.
-only post spam linking to your stuff.
-aren't known to the mod (so seriously consider joining the Skype Chat or at least the lounge thread a bit before posting one).
-you just link to the album and don't write anything about it.
-put little effort into the audio or album in general.
If you aren't sure and can't contact a mod, post in that thread, as the OP recommends.
