without annoying people by making random add requests...? I can't work this one out!
you have replaced my warnshaped friend space
This is a serious issue!
music on to people, if they wabt it they'll come find it.
don't ask me im just the resident drunk.
give my 50p now! that's a quarter of a double vodka and orange.
you love it. beer gut?
don't waste away! where will i be left without you and your most pleasurable company?
he was a nice chap.
you keep a family of uzbekistanians under your bed, right? That's the secret isn't it?
"HOW"? I don't want to force anything on anyone. I just want to let people who might be interested know about it. Even the people who were fans of my old band won't add us cos they probably think it's some random indie chancers...
messages to individuals who seem like they may like your music.
I have to sit there and find like-minded people? And what will stop them thinking I'm not just going through myspace making random adds and cutting and pasting a "personal message".
oh and lots of 'oxoxo' hmmm
Not sure if that'll work - people will just think "Huh! Nice try, LOSER!" "DENY!"
there that really wasnt so hard was it?
just mention the fog band in the message.
better idea would be signing into the fog band account and sending a bulletin once a day for a few days saying "hi, bobby's now in this band. theyre more 50s sounding. add them if you want"
Maybe I'll do that..
I thought it was a bit unfair on the other foggies, but you're right. The time has come to stop pussyfooting around.
I haven't done ONE friend request from my bands myspace...I don't feel we are quite ready to start bothering people yet.
We still have 300 or so friends, from people adding us.
Do you reckon I should start adding people?
If you add anyone, you will be demonised on DiS!
to let them now about the opcoming biggest gig of your careers.
But how can I cos no one will add bands any more! It's all the fault of those people who do blanket adding using big machines!
you can add me, if you haven't already...i don't see the problem with it really.
If a band look like utter wankers and sound shite, I refuse, and if they have some glimmer of not-shitness, i accept
It is a little undignified to add thousands of people though...makes you look stupid- like you are one of those bands that thinks you automatically get a record deal when you hit 10'000 friends
the band I play in don't generally just add complete strangers. I know bands who do that and have like a billion friends or somthing. I used to get quite jealous that we didn't have as many friends but to be honest only a handful of people on friend lists ever to turn up to shows. If people hear you at a gig and they like you then chances are they will add ya.
We bring the fans to you!
Just streamable, unless you want to make it available for download.
Unless you mean the player..? We now have embedded flash players in-page.
I could walk around your gig on Saturday endlessly chanting your myspace address and cuffing people round the head. The cuffing bit is just a personal pleasure
Cripes, my infection won't have cleared up, I'll just breath on people
amd post a message there
wouldn't that amount to shameless plugging?
Don't do that...
I have deleted certain bands because they will not stop sending irrelevant messages. All I need to know from a band is are they touring or do they have a record out. I don't care what they watched on telly or their opinions on anything. For example, The Bridge Gang - I like them and they are lovely people, but they won't stop spamming, so I've cut them off.
or anything like that. It's the actual problem of getting people to add you in the first place that is challenging. Cos let's face it - it's one of Myspace's primary functions (to spread word of bands), but some bands are just too greedy!

Subject: Why, hello there LOTTIE!
Body: Pleased to make your acquaintance!
The reason I'm sending this message is due to my conclusion - after many hours examining your hobbies and interests - that you are part of FRIENDS OF THE BRIDE's target audience and thus an excellent candidate for inclusion in the hallowed FRIENDS OF THE BRIDE "friend space".
Please do accept our add or I will keep pestering you forever until you give in MWAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!
Ooh - almost forgot:
xxoooooooooxxxxxxxxoooooooooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxooooooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxoooooooooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxoooooooooooooooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxxxxooooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxoooooooooooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxooooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxoooooooooooooxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx etc etc
the plural of bulletin of course
asking for advice on how to be popluar on myspace?
Tonight: MYSPACE ADVICE THREADS - Jagging With Finesse.
That wasn't my intention. I just thought it was an interesting discussion point. See - even the mention of one's band gets you demonised on here. Unless you're Pagan Fucking Wanderer Lu! ;D
publicise your Myspace page by including it on your demos, flyers handed out a gigs, asking anyone who reviews you or plays you on the radio to mention it? Then when people enjoy your music they'll pay you a visit. Trying to encourage random punters to show up there seems a bit odd. Maybe I'm just out of touch.
but that's still a very limited amount of publicity. I'm not saying I want to spam the world at gun point! I just want to get the information out to interested parties in an effective way.
