    You're basically running in here with a loud hailer shouting "CHECK OUT MY EVENT". If you stick around a bit you might be able to slip them in from time to time without appearing to be here just to promote your night.

    Would be a shame if someone followed the facebook link and spammed all over it.

    tbf to him, he did furnish the electro swing thread with a bunch of useful links and apologise repeatedly for his spamming once it was pointed out to him.

    Every one of his posts contained a link to his night or his DJs. And how he mistook this for an electro swing thread is anyone's guess - but then had a go at Offline for no apparent reason.

    It wasn't an impressive debut.

    But nevermind, eh. People have had a word with him now and we're supposed to be welcoming new members, so let's see if things go better from here on.

    Just a thought.

    He wasn't banned (like he should have been under our rules), so I'd say he's been treated very fairly indeed.

    Let's hope he now starts posting up some stuff that isn't directly related to his promotions.

    Indeed. He could start his own forum to do that.

    That's generally the way it works, yes. You build it, you put in the hard work to maintain it, and then you're free to invite everyone along to your events for free. It's a lot more dignified than trying to piggy back on someone else's work (also known as spamming).

    You know, that's why I said it!

    Once pointed out, he apologised and even posted useful stuff up that has nothing to do with his events!

    Much better to be nice to new posters and invite them to contribute to the boards. Good work fractionman.

    Not quite. The links all referred back to the same event he was spamming, or featured his DJ.

    Anyway, it's up to him if he wants to keep on posting but it would be nice to see a few conversational, link free posts.

    I hate that electro swing stuff. I'd rather get a proper swing outfit.

    You take care of the payment details, and I'll book him.

    Perhaps you missed this bit in the OP. It's not a fantasy thread.

    Try and get "Islet", another great Cardiff band, different sound, not sure if ideal for Offline as some of it is a bit plinky plonky
    they swap instruments between songs and get involved in the audience
    they are bloody GOOD!

    The fucking band ska band I'd booked three months ago for the 16th Dec gig have just cancelled on me, so I'll be looking through this list later.
