Re: A Jemsite Myspace?

I'm pretty sure there is a Jemsite myspace group, but what would a Jemsite Myspace have to offer than Jemsite already doesn't?

Re: A Jemsite Myspace?

What would be the point? This is THE Jemsite. Myspace is just a profile place for picking up girls

I know its hard to believe but I am positive that not every Jem or Ibanez guitar enthusiast knows about Jemsite. Myspace may help to promote Jemsite. Not only would that increase Jemsite's traffic, but it would also be providing a terrific service to those not "in the know."

Re: A Jemsite Myspace?

I'd like a myspace jemsite, purely to be able to have it in my top 8 for vein social reasons to show a vague kind of support, but Kirk just steped up my arguement for me.

I got the idea having seen a dimarzio pickup group, and thinking cool.

Re: A Jemsite Myspace?

i have no idea what this thread is even about or a "group" is?

the few times i've clicked on a links others sent me to from myspace i must admit it gave me some creepy feeling as if i were close doing something illegal since i'm not a teenager. perhaps it's a poor first impression but it seems like there are way too many underage & attention starved members trying to be porn stars there. unless i'm convinced otherwise, until they monitor content (to some degree) and restrict ages I can't see myself doing anything ...glen

Re: A Jemsite Myspace?

Myspace is just another unregulated internet site for sexual predators to find lonely victims. We have had a few stories in the local news here where predators are using myspace to find victims. I wouldnt waste time making a jemsite myspace.

Re: A Jemsite Myspace?

myspace is what you make of it. what i've made of it is an excellent opportunity to post my music and have a huge database of people listen to it and give feedback. additionally, there are tons of other musicians out there and you can find some great music (i've found several unknown instrumental guitarists who are incredible players).

as far as a myspace jemsite page, i think the main thing it would offer is one place where other jemsite members who have music pages could be gathered so others can put a face to a screenname, check out their tunes and learn a little more about each member through photos and whatever blurb is posted on their page.

Re: A Jemsite Myspace?

I don't "hang out" on My Space, but I do have a page there. I've never been involved with nor solicited for anything sexual or untoward, and I've seen no content that I would be ashamed of sharing with my wife or mother.

I think if you find that "creepy" stuff - you're looking for it.

Re: A Jemsite Myspace?

If you call "looking for it" click a link from an email, hit page down twice and see a bunch of scary profile pics (even though i use adblocker) then I guess you could have a point

Look, i can see some legitimate uses for it (ie. what rastachild posted) but it needs a rudy giuliani-esque cleanup imho.

It's not the type of place you can surf with other people watching over your shoulder imho (at work, public place, etc)... glen

Agreed on that point, I asked as I've been able to use it as a pretty successfull local promo company hub for getting people into gigs and linking them to a forum, and it just occured to me that it could serve a similar function here.

Having read one or two myspace horror stories, I can see negative aspects too, esp getting cought at work.
