NOTE: This question is not asking "Why did you start posting here?", because that answer would be for 98% of people, "Because I like(d) Dream Theater." That said, you can only pick one. Your *main* reason for being here. I would expect that the first option would get more votes in DT-side, as that *is* the the main reason they're here. What I'm really interested in is- do you mostly want to talk about DT's genre? Do you come here to start threads about, get recommendations for, or share your thoughts on all the bands related to DT? There is a strong case to be made that most people here's favorite genre is either prog rock or prog metal. Or are you here because you like all kinds of rock and metal music? Certainly you can't always be listening to or thinking about prog. There's plenty of good stuff across the massive (sub-)genres of rock and metal, probably too much to ever exhaust or get tired of. Whether you're into more mainstream things such as pop-rock or you are much more into underground things like black metal, it's OK because you know there are plenty of fans of those genres here and your discussions will probably never get old & the well of recommendations will never run dry. OR, do you honestly post here because you know the *true* diversity of characters on this forum? You realize that there are fans of bluegrass, classical, electronica, folk, funk, hip-hop, jazz, latin, pop, post-rock, psychadelica, rap, techno, and more, who are always here as a resource for your less Dream Theater-focused tastes. You can engage in discussions about the farthest reaches of music and really see what it means for people to have "open minds" about the human creation we call music. At the core it's really just that we all have a deep-set adoration for music that brings us all together. Choose carefully. While I'd like to say I'm here because I'm totally open-minded and want to commune with all the fans of the vast music world out there, I can't say I've reached the stage where that's my motivation for posting on this message board. Though, I certainly appreciate the resource and the fact that those people are here. But probably 90% or more of my music discussion here is still in forms of rock and metal music.
