Well, I had this idea when I was playing guitar today and thought maybe you guys would like it. I have no idea if it's ever been suggested before but here we go.


I don't know if this is possible, but I was thinking maybe we could run a competition in the "Promote Your Band" section. You would enter your band and a pannel of judges would pick the best band. The winner of the competition would be able to design an ad that would be shown on Ultimate-Guitar.com, whether it be on the homepage or on every page, to promote their band. Just throwing a thought out there to see what you guys thought.

I thought the mods didn't have power of what ads go on the site...

Yeah that's what I thought too, but I figured I might as well give it a shot. Might raise awareness to the users of some of the talented bands on this sight.

It doesn't necessarily have to be the same as all the other ads on here. There could maybe be a link at the top of the page or somewhere to "Band of the Week/Month" or whatever. Something like that doesn't sound too hard to incorporate. I don't know, though, so maybe I should shutup. :D
Sounds like an awesome idea, though. If it's not hard to put up, that is.

i dont think they mean the banners and popups, just a section on the homepage like the interviews and likewise

Great idea, I'm all for it, and I'd love to see it happen.

Band of the Month sounds great also.

Both would be cool. I was hoping for like ads at the top of the page, but I don't see it happening now. We'll see I guess.

I'd like to see what a mod thought about this idea.

We used to have the "promote your bands" section were you could rate bands.

But too many bands submitted and it was never updated... I'm not saying its a bad idea, I'm just saying it would be hard to organize... plus, I don't know if the developers over at the UG office could put an ad up...

^Yeah, I remember the Promote Your Bands Section.

It wouldn't be that hard. We'd just have a panel of judges who'd select a band. Then we'd have the band create a banner. Just a thought though.

I was going to write: What the hell does holding a competition of bands have to do with band aids? and then i reread the title :(
