After browsing through numerous threads in the forum, something has come to our attention. We highly encourage new bands to be promoted and news given to us in this forum but we've noticed that links are rarely given.

For example, many threads just say "what do you think of [insert name here]" blah blah blah. Now, this is all fine and well but for people who have never heard of them before, they may actually want to check them out based on our recommendations.

So, we are asking a small favour of you users.

In the future, if you're providing a thread about a new band hitting the 'scence' (), a thread about a band you love or even some form of band news (although, not as much on the latter) would you provide a link to a website (or two) that will allow us to check the music out whether it be a MySpace, Dmusic, Purevolume, official band website so that we can buy/stream the music.

This is only a small request and it's one that Andrew and I feel is a really good idea. We're not going to warn or ban you if you don't do this (we're not that strict) but it's curtious to the other members if you could do so.

The whole event occured the other week in UG Chat where a few peeps were saying (in slight annoyance) how they love the forum but could never find anything they liked and how threads were rather vauge.


Okay, so in conclusion, in future threads could you please try and provide members with a link to the bands website/myspace/pv site so that they can check it out. It's not only curtious to them, but it's also curtious to Andrew and I as then we don't get silly threads or posts about bands and such being in the wrong place, or things like that.

Thanks for the co-operation guys.

Take care

Makes Sense.

I do notice a lot of those threads with no links and info get very little replies anyway or just get ignored alltogether, so if you're going to make the effort to put a few links in or what not it's really doing a favour for youself aswell.

I always put the links on the new bands I post about and never get answers

I like this new rule/ favour. It really annoys me when people just go 'What do you think of some band?' I hate having to go find out about them myself.

^Oh wow, it's siz months to Christmans!!!

I think it's a good idea, like the A+I radio aswell, there's always most of the links in there so why not in general threads.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I agree. But I'd post MP3s and no one would care so I stopped.

I always linked them from legal sources, like the bands page or something. You can always find a free legal mp3 or two out there. Well, I can, because my search savvy is speedy and astounding. ALLITERATION PARTY!
