Are we losing focus?
There's been a blog today about having a Trades section on the site, whereby NWB members could post an advert of the trade they work in e.g Plumber, Joiner, Electrician.
This has been brought up in the past many times, however, I've always decided against having a trades section in the fear it would dilute the content on the site. Also, I don't think we need the added rants/reviews of Member 'X' of their botched up wallpapering/decorating - a potential minefield!! (legally)
There's also been some recent blogs on culling dormant band/venue/fan accounts.
Which gets me onto the question.. should we even have "Venue" and "Fan" accounts on the site?
This is of course NorthwestBANDS (NWB) - and not northwestBandsVenuesFans (NWBVF)
Before, you all start with the... "You cant have Bands, without Venues and Fans". It's important to point out the site is already excluding (to some extent), other sectors of live music family e.g. Promoters, Managers, Djs, Solo Artists, Studios, Practice Rooms etc
What do we all think? Do we just cater for Bands? Do we carry on as normal, or should we have accounts for Promoters, Managers as well?
