Ok I never realised anyone paid so much attention to links in people's signatures.

My music myspace page was getting dozens of hits and about 30 plays every day a while ago. Then I got banned from UG for undisclosed reasons and this went down to about one play per day. I had a link in my signature.

At that point I suspected that it may be a coincidence even though the timing was suspicious. However, my ban just expired and I've been posting for about an hour or so and have had like 15 plays.

Anyone else in a similar situation?

Sounds interesting - I may have to do this too if it increases the amount of new listeners to one's band.

Not really surprizing so why were you banned???

From reading that I just had to click your sig


I posted in a thread that had already been reported. Twice. Makes murder seem like nothing, doesn't it? I am so definitely going to hell.

And yeah this was partly just a sly trick to draw attention to my sig.

No one has cared to even rate our song in my link, so I guess either people ignore it or don't like it.

It's far easier to get responses in real life, at least for me it is.

Since starting this thread my play count has rocketed even more. I'm worried I'm gonna get yelled at for promoting my music in the wrong thread.

Aaargh, stupid myspace. It is meant to be available for download, it certainly used to be. Myspace changed the setting somehow. I will change it back right now.

Edit: Done. I think it may have been my mistake. I probably forgot to re-check the box when I last uploaded the newest recordings of the song.
