for her works do comes back next year.

As a band site with a load of great bands we did not come out of that smelling of roses.

It wasn't the friendliest welcome I've ever seen. Probably one of the reasons a lot of people don't bother coming on here any more tbh

I've been on 14 hour shifts and sleeps at work .... Looks like something I've missed dawn. Doesn't sound good... :-(

The marketing dept needs to be sacked. New visitors still get greeted by the "Official Site Closure Notice" and if they make it past that, they get insulted for their troubles.

And people still sit around scratching their heads wondering why NWB is on its arse?

For once I agree with Asa. The closure notice that greets everyone checking out the site must be off-putting. How about a more positive post showing the new direction it's going for?

The sites unwelcoming closure notice is a bit naff but that's not the point. Kerry got past that and ended up with a blog that was pretty unhelpful to say the least.

+1 for those words of wisdom!

does anyone know exactly what direction the site is going. I've heard a few different stories or it staying alive with a membership, then a paid membership, then new admins, then someonie starting a new site, so I don't know where we are up to. I like NWB and although it's not where we get our main gigs from we've had some, and some new band members over the years. It's good to chat to other bands and see where they are playing and what their setlist is too.

I agree, some very unhelpful comments and although they were meant to be 'in jest' it didn't sit right with me either.

We can't all like the same music.

The last I heard Mr NWB is in the process of a possibility of a pay to use site... We are just waiting for the details. Mr MWB is a busy guy by all accounts so we will all have to be patient. :-)
