    What's the etiquette for advertising your own stuff in this forum? I'm nearly finished an album, and I want to put ONE post in this ONE forum so that people who are interested can get it.

    Here's the danger I see in this: if I can do it, anybody can do it. That would include people who signed up as members but never came here for anything other than to sell stuff. I'm not trying to talk you out of it, or into it either. I want to know what's acceptable.

    as great as some of your stuff is, I think selling something in here (the clinic) would be bad..

    I think the only thing that should be discussed in here is how that CD is mixed..

    maybe just always include a message at the bottom of your posts.. kinda like a signature..

    you would probably post even more being that it would be like free advertising..

    just one opinion..

    most of your stuff is great though..

    Yeah, that's fine with me. It's a relief, actually. I want this place to never get commercialized.

    I'm not for it. As it is, I have my suspicions that several users are posting for commercial reasons - under the guise of wanting "feeback" on their mix.

    Not here, but I've ben saying all along that there ought to be a place here where you could advertise your work, or where product vendors could freely spam their mics, mic pres, etc. The downside is exactly what you mentioned--any one time freak could come in with any scam he wanted.

    The board sells ad space, doesn't it? What would it cost me to buy a banner for a month to promote my upcoming release? Or--make it a pay forum. Maybe some reasonable amount would buy a classified ad. It would help the board and give us a legal place to spam ourselves to high heaven! people who were LOOKING to buy stuff could go there and those who were offended could stay away....everybody's happy.

    Excatly.
    They are easy as to spot too.They get all defensive when you question their motives for posting here.A lot of people are dropping by here lately posting stuff just to get hits on their sites.......Losers.
