Band classifieds?

I'm sure I'm not the only forumer that's desperate to find people in the area for a band. Wouldn't a "Musician Classifieds" subforum be a good idea? I think I'd be more likely to find people in my area this way. I've tried a bunch of classified ad sites too, but having a classifieds forum for MT wouldn't be a bad idea.

Well I'm from Spain, but I live in New Jersey now... There's no harm in posting an ad, I'm sure more than one person will find others in their area. I highly doubt I'm the only cunt in New Jersey on the forums. How would you find people if you don't even try?

I just wanna note that there are 6,700 registered members to this forum. Not including the amount of 'guests' that browse the forum. Wouldn't be THAT bad of an idea, or at least have a thread maybe. Just my 2 cents.

Um... like where does it say we're not allowed to speak of band classifieds? And if you don't care... why make it more difficult to get the people who do want this forum to be made?

I made it a poll. I'll add a new section if there's a strong demand for it.

i hate to be a bastard but...

6,700 members. (for the sake of argument, yes i know you dont have to be a member to read the posts, but most of those members probably didn't ever read anything anyway.) over four years.

the worlds population is about 67,000,000,000
that means 1 in 1,000,000 people are a member of this site.

lets say i lived in london, in one of the worlds top 20 largest cities, with a population of 7,287,555.

roughly 7 people in london would see my drummer wanted advert. including me.

ii could be really silly, and say that since about 1 in 66 posts are in the drum zone, 1 in 66 people are drummers. giving a probability of one drummer from my area reading my advert every 9 or 10 years.

You're assuming that all the forumers are equally distributed around the world. I think there's a bigger percentage of people in the US hence why I feel that I'll probably find someone interested in the area. But I've noticed there's also a bunch of forumers from Denmark, quite a few from Texas, a few in New Zealand, etc. Again, it would never hurt to try. I've put ads up on different classified sites and a few forums, but seeing as this is a metal-related site it would be a lot easier to find the kind of people for a metal band. Is it really that difficult to make a subforum?

And should this forum never be made, in what subforum can we talk about this?

i assume most cities probably have a site(s) dedicated to the metal scene in that city. (www.ottawametal.com) and within those sites would be the best/most logical place to find people to join your band. sure the small towns won't have sites, but if you live in a small town, fucking go to some shows, talk to people and there you go. done deal.

Yeah... because there are metal shows in Union City, NJ... not. I'm just trying all my options.

One thing, its a good idea, but, unfourtunatly we aren't all who we say they are. I've had a few experiences where I "hired" someone to be in a band and it turns out that they sucked. Not even close to what they said they were. I guess its not a really bad thing but it kind of a waste of time. And You can never really tell if someone puts up a demo it might not be theres. But i guess it might be a little better on this forum because you guys are a little less... retarded. So overall I think it would be a good idea. I mean, what do you have to loose, if there is no one in your area then there is no one in your area. Too bad, now you are exactly were you were 5 seconds ago, no harm done. Just my two cents.

I'm sure it's hard enough to get good mods for our present forums, so I voted no.

It might declutter the other forums that people post their want ads in and have them all contained in one place, but to monitor if they're all legit would be impossible. A disclaimer at the beginning of the thread saying that would be okay and then people that post elsewhere get moved to that thread.

And you guys don't ever hire someone without seeing and hearing them play. That's what auditions are for. If they really want to do it they'll understand.
