Default Your Playing section

Obviously I like this forum a lot (ie. too much) but there's one change I'd like to see. Given that, in the end, it's about the music, I'd like to see these changes to the forum format:

1. Your Playing to be its own major section along with General discussion, Drummers, Drum Technique etc. After all, the playing is what matters most so it makes sense to me to give it priority.

2. To break it up into three subsections:

a. Drum Covers
b. Band recordings
c. Jams

Sometimes I find it's a shame to see fabulous recordings - especially those who are top players and/or posting their bands' new albums - slip down the list and into obscurity under a wave of drum covers. Don't get me wrong, I see the logic and value of drum covers but they are less valuable than music played by musicians and with proper balance between instruments. When I see it happening it makes me feel like bumping the band/album threads so people get to hear them.

I don't know how hard this would be to do or how flexible the forum template is.

How do others feel about this?
