Ay!
That mySpace space is empty, and it isn't even a name or is 152059783 some kind of code?
I do find it a bit rude putting muds name there, because that is not muds page!

It has been said somewhere in this thread that if you set the page up properly the 'right' people will understand and anything 'undesirable' to what the site is all about will either be clever enough to move on to the next link or just not find it if they come in! Or do you sincerely envisage hoards of morons and "MC Screwdriver, and G-honey with crappy generic rythms and rappin about shootin' m' ho..  " types taking over the site?
Does everyone feel so powerless?
Though I fully agree that mud should have the last say as to what happens to the bandAmp name and product, as in his idea, there is still no reason I see why a mySpace page could not be used to promote the music made by the members of bandAmp.
If it is something organized by the members themselves, that is an achievement in it's self, for the members as well as for mud & co!
Why don't you get two people to look after it, in the same way that PX and JimK moderate? 
You could even use it as an incentive to make good collaborations : "And the winner this month gets to post their song on 'myBandAmpSpace'"!
Ha! I just made that up for a laugh Ha!
It could be maintained by the members and be associated with bandAmp.com, but it would be a separate 'space'. And in any case, how much promoting of such a site would there be in reality? I hear PX say "5 hours a day" if you really want to get things up and running!
It's just a page to play with. You can do loads with the HTML!

Well, kings...
'That mySpace space is empty, and it isn't even a name or is 152059783 some kind of code?'
Haha, I have never used myspace, only to look at bands etc. so I have no idea what the name/code for the site is all about...

'I do find it a bit rude putting muds name there, because that is not muds page!'
I know what you mean, but I didn't go through the setup, and that was oldies part, and I think he did it to show that it was mud who should have the final say in this.

I like your idea for putting the best collaborations on the page, and, if you guys, and mud want to agree to that, then maybe, oldies and I could give it a shot, I mean, I don't know much about the site, but I'd be willing to learn.

Cheers!

Well if Oldies understands how to keep the page and get it to look good with the HTML and both of you know what bandAmp is all about then the members of bandAmp have a collective mySpace!
If you were to put your own Sudden Sunset as the song that comes up first the people visiting will immediately know where they are at!
Just to be on the safe side the opening sentence on the page could be :
"bandAmp, a small quaint community of hill-billys with shotguns who love playing banjos, going yee-haa and spitting!"
Then I'm sure we wont get bothered by any 'ho pimpers' and alike!

legality
This website was created by Mud, and he holds all rights to it.  If you post a  myspace page  representing Mud/Bandamp without his permission you could be in trouble legally.  I was checking on this yesterday with a friend of mine who does nothing but websites and server developments for  businesses in the area.  He says now he has to have lawyers draw up each and everything, because  there are so many lawsuits involving the internet now.

  I doubt Mud would do that, but who knows, he may hate myspace for all we know.  It would probably be better to get with Mud first and work it out, or just make your own page, and put a link to Bandamp,

  Mud could then either give permission for a Bandamp myspace page, or build his own myspace page  I'm sure that if Mud can build this website, he could obviously put a myspace page together if he wanted to.   Just my thoughts though, as I'm only a user and have no rights to speak for the website developer.

re: legality
Wow, that is interesting, the world is a great big slice of heaven for lawyers nowdays    so I'd better pay attention or I'll be put away for life.

I'll change the name on the myspace page, and, if mud hates myspace, then there's always kings's idea of putting some collabs on there (with permission first, of course  ), just something like, hi, listen to these talented people! and leave it there.

Is that ok???

ok I don't like myspace... the fact that I couldn't add mybandampspace as a friend was the last drop to convince me to quit investing any energy in that sorry excuse for an online latrine...

So you have the right to do as you please with the accounts you have created, and admittedly I have (had) several myself, but since my personal record stands at 2 gained friends in 5 3+ hrs of chatting and losing 1 for uncertain reasons, I have decided to continue buy-cutting myspace as I have before deciding to give it another shot a few months ago.

This buy-cut also means I will not tolerate uploads to the myspace-bandamp related sites featuring any of my input what way whatsoever. Also I will not allow a mentioning of my nickname or a URL to my site on the accounts home pages.

I will report any violation to the myspace administrators and the consequences will be yours to deal with.

I just had to say that...

regards,
PX

Well, sorry I have remained silent for so long.

I would really like to apologize for going right ahead and making that page. That was a mistake. Again, sorry.
The idea was thrown out and for some reason I grabbed it a ran. The idea is still out there, and I'm perfectly willing to go either way with it; the slightest word from mud and it is gone forever. And until I do hear from him, it will remain as it is now, empty. It is, after all, totally up to him. I think he will certainly listen to all of our concerns.

I meant no offense to mud in using his name. I meant to imply that if this project were to get off the ground, it would be fully under his direction.

Hey no probs. I have emailed mud and hopefully he will make his statements anytime soon. I forgot to mention that so let's just await the webmaster's input.

Ahh, I am unfamiliar with myspace, so...
The page shall stay blank. Maybe it could be a rule in the book of bandamp.

I'm not sorry for opening a page, these kind of things are possible these days so i see no harm in showing what is possible.
As usual I respect PX view, and as he knows all too well himself the accounts can be deleted in seconds.
I can understand how people can find the whole mySpace thing a horrendous place, but the other side of this coin is that some people would like to find recognition for their work and I'm afraid to say that If someone has a desire and the vision to grow then they must step on a band wagon at some time, otherwise they just sit there playing at home! 
This little exercise is at least a good indication as to where the collective bandAmp mind is. Some members see the need to grow, others like it as it is, some members know the best way forwards, others are still trying to find that way!
About the page I created, just say the word (and a good reason) and I'll delete it! no probs!
