I'd Like to Read More Profiles

I'm having a great time here this month and I'm enjoying reading all your great posts. After I read them I often want to know more about who wrote it. Not what the person's real name is, but more like what type of work they do (post, music, mastering, etc.), where they live, what gear they use, and so on. It helps put what their post in perspective. And when someone is asking me a question it helps me understand more about them so I can answer the question better.

It would be great if those of you who have not filled out your profile would. It just makes the forum a little bit less impersonal.

Thanks.

Thanks Shane!

To make less work for everybody, the questions I'm most interested in are Occupation + Key gear used.

Thanks Again!

I think the 'key gear used' field should alow us to put in more info. After all, this is a Gearslutz forum.

Charles,

> It would be great if those of you who have not filled out your profile would. It just makes the forum a little bit less impersonal. <

I agree completely. I frequent many forums and all the time people ask "Where can I buy [some acoustic material]?" But I have no idea if they're in New York City or Singapore! It's also difficult to take seriously people with login names like "Mongrel Boy" when they don't sign their name. How should you address them - Dear Mongrel?

They picked it. I just use it:

If it works for them, it works for me.

Heh. Charles asks us to update our profiles and I get to it like a Pavlovian dog. Sure hope he doesn't ask for urine samples.

It wasn't you Mike, my friend, I've read yours--more than once. I was asking people who have no profile to take a minute + just give us a little bit of info. So I'd have a clue, who a I was talking to. (would that be iambic pentameter)

You all should have websites, and if you don't, you should contact me and I can help you with that.

Alphajerk also designs websites, and I'm sure he could help you too.

One of the major reasons I got my website up, is precisely what Charles was getting at with this thread: It tells people who I am and where I'm coming from.

More importantly, it tells you whether or not to take my posts seriously, or how seriously. You can listen to my music and decide for yourself if I know what the hell I'm talking about, or not.

A web presence will not make your music sound better, but it will communicate your music to a larger audience. And the feedback you get will most definitely improve your perspective on how your music fits into the big scheme of things.

So, yes, fill out those profiles.

But then, make it a point to get a web presence happening. In the "pro" world it is something to be expected of you, if that's what you aspire to.

YMMV.

I totally agree with Eric on getting Internet/Web presence.

Further, those of you who balk at posting mp3s because you think it compromises your sound are making a huge mistake. All's vanity on that one.

Unless, of course, your names are Nathan Elrded or Fletcher. You guys are in a whole nother world completely. Keepers of the flame, I guess.

It's modern rock like the Crease stuff you did. (Cant wait to get the Crease Album) I attached their next single called Satellite. Right now I am tracking vox for them for a french version of the song.

You wont believe what it was tracked to You can also check their website for more samples.

So, what sort of cash outlay would it require to procure myself a bit of web heaven, oh ye gearslut web gurus? As you can see, I have a cool domain name, but am a little lacking in content.

Brian, I just emailed you.

BTW everyone, I'm not selling my services here, just offering advice on how to DIY-it.

I'm not a website company, but I got impatient with the one I was dealing with and ended up building it myself.
