Why not. Sounds like a good idea.

I vote yes to both having a band classified forum and for rapture being a mod. I do however, believe the success will not be as great as many people hoped. I don't mean to be a cynicist, but here's how I view it. I have, from experience, found potential band mates, online that live around the area I live in. But then, you have several problems. Age is a big one. I might find someone who loves the same bands and styles of metal I do, but then they turn out to be 28. And also, transportation seems to be a big problem for me in terms of band members, even if a person lives within 30 minutes of your practice location, can they consistantly get a ride? These are some things for the mods and admin to ponder. Anyways, I don't think adding it will hurt the forum in any way.

True, I know exactly how this feels. I've found some people but they're in NYC, and way older and more experienced than me, and on top of that they needed to start touring the nation soon so I can't really do that yet(college + work).

However age doesn't scare me though, unless it's like someone who's been playing 20 years then I might feel discouraged lol. But still, if we'd be playing the kind of music we both like, I wouldn't care about age.

The ejam idea makes this forum even more useful.

Oh... it stops when the two signals overlap? Like if you talk at the same time, you can't hear his voice? I'm sure there's a way to overcome this, and there's loads of other apps for online mic conversations...

I wonder if and when the classifieds forum will be implemented. Maybe I'll just make a band connect website or something. Actually, I'll go do that.

I'll just make a forum or something and post it here when I'm done setting it up. Feel free to share your input into how it should be organized. I'm thinking of organizing it by classifieds by state, that way people won't waste their time searching.

You'd have to pimp your site/forum a lot to get people to go there. There are tons of sites out there for classifieds in every state and even some of the bigger towns, but that's the very same reason why it's hard to find people: everyone looks in different places.

Yesterday, I met these two dudes at a Cryptopsy/Suffo/Vader/Decapitated show(a vocalist and guitarist) that play in a tech. DM band. We exchanged contacts so I might get some luck.

Funny... I've gotten two responses from a NJ-state classifieds site. One band is a bunch of Nu metal kids that supposedly know Ill Niņo and want to play Soulfly/Slipknot crap, so I didn't even bother replying. Another is a straight-up metalcore band, which is almost as bad, but they stated Megadeth and Slayer in their influences.. I should've put "NO JUMPDAFUKUP-CORE" in my ad.

I think a Gear Classifieds would be more useful.

Nomad is a busy man. He checks up on the feedback forum whenever he has time, so leave him be. He will do it in his fair time.

Well, the classifieds forum worked for me. I found a guitarist to jam with that only lives an hour or so away. So yea, it works.
