View Full Version : We want ADAM Back!!

19th February 2001, 12:48 PM
Haiz all ya knuffels,

Haven't been online since friday and so much has happened here didn't it? Most important I think is that Adam no longer will be our webmaster.

I think instead of loosing Adam, music3w should get rid of some of their sites that cost money but don't attracked any people. This one does and we just neeeeed Adam here.

So come on peeps, reply to this post to show music3w that, if anything, we don't agree to their decission!!!

19th February 2001, 12:52 PM
yeah, i agree with you poe, cant believe he was made redundant!!!! Bring back ADam!!! Who manages the site now?? anyone??

(By the way, just went onto your site and registered - what a great site! and thanks lin for reminding me it was there!!)


19th February 2001, 12:54 PM
Yeah. I agree Poes. WE WANT ADAM BACK, NOW!!!

Hi Poesiemau, I completly agree:

Adam is the best!!! We can't do without him!
Give him back to us! What did he do? http://www.demo3w.com/ubb/confused.gif After he has done so much work on the site, especially the BB, it's great the way it is! http://www.demo3w.com/ubb/grrr.gif

Otherwise we'll go on strike! http://www.demo3w.com/ubb/evil.gif (Wow, such a good thing he made these smilies! http://www.demo3w.com/ubb/bigwink.gif )

What's this on Adam having to leave? Made redundant even?? Get him back on the case!!!
He did a great job with the new bulletin board and site management. M3W/DEP, please do post an official reason here on the board!
I loved his changes to the site I started with UB40, please let him continue doing so!

There are technical difficulties with Music3w that is beyond our control at the moment. We are waiting for Music3w to supply us with more info and we will be talking to Adam shortly. As soon as we have any further info we will let you know.

19th February 2001, 05:22 PM

DEP please let us keep ADAM http://www.demo3w.com/ubb/smile.gif


19th February 2001, 05:51 PM
Glad to hear that UB40 is looking into what's happening with this decision over Adam. I donít know whether Adam was employed strictly by M3W or by UB40 or both and what UB40 has control over and M3W has control over. Those and other business details might rightfully be kept private but in any event, I think there is a need for UB40 (with or without M3W?) to have Adam kept on to maintain the REST of the website--let's not forget that there's more to this than just the chat room and the bulletin board.....what about the latest news page? the discography page? the videoshots page for which Brian recently mentioned there is new footage awaiting to be put on-line? These sections of the website do need Adam to provide ongoing support because that's where the general public, the media, and other interest groups look for information about the band, as is the case with any other band around these days--the WEBSITE and its regular and updated maintenance is CRITICAL. Adam is definitely needed from a public relations point of view for the good of the band. To me, it's a must and a given--so I think they HAVE to find a way to make it happen from that perspective. Obviously there are things weíre not aware of because that doesnít make senseóthere must be a way that M3W has for updating the site if they feel Adam is redundant? But what way is that? http://www.demo3w.com/ubb/confused.gif Maybe it's strictly a technical mechanism they have for doing so. Last summer, I had the impression that Adam was employed by UB40 BEFORE M3W was contracted for its service? UB40, we need to keep the human, personal touch that Adam gives and that Joris had started, making the UB40 site so very unique.

Regarding the chat room and the bulletin board, a lot of creativity and great ideas have been born--the smilies, the loonie status, the registration system, the monitoring of the chat room, etc., and everyone has been enjoying the interaction and Adam is top notch in his customer service and his good rapport with people. Like the old song says, we've got a good thing going, a real good thing going...... UB40, you lift us up not only with your music but also with these niceties for the fans who support you...please find a creative business solution that will keep things going....one that keeps Adam working for you in some kind of dual relationship with M3W? Adamís position might be redundant on other sites that see little to no traffic and less than enthusiastic fans, but the volume of interest on this website makes his position essential, not redundant....M3W should make cuts elsewhere like limit the amount of services provided to sites that donít generate any interest and reallocate those funds to the sites that do like UB40. But regardless of what M3W decides, I hope UB40 will be able to make a way to uphold their interests which include Adam.

Big love always,


P.S. A lot of the features on this website are likely not on most of the websites of other bands simply because they came out of the creativity of Joris....so M3W might not need an "Adam" webmaster for their other sites because the sites are not as vibrant, but they need him for THIS site simply because of all the added and valuable features of this site.

hey dont lose this gt guy
if it wasnt 4 adam.we would have never made great new mates...COME ON DEP,GIVE HIM A JOB


19th February 2001, 07:15 PM
I want Adam to stay too.............

19th February 2001, 07:35 PM
Desperate, thanks for your posting.

To set the record straight regarding me leaving the website team. Music3W took over from me due to some business reasons and they put Adam on the case to maintain the website. Adam did a good job tuning up the design a little (UB40 wanted the site not to fully change as they loved what it was already) and kept all the info online which is just what all us fans want.

I can give him heaps of praise adding all the extras like this wonderful bulletin board and the chat. Not only did he add these features but he also joined them from start which is the best thing happening! For many of us he's not only the guy doing the updates but also became a friend, a UBLoony. Its the best a site can have, full interactivity between maker/maintainer and user! Now it all seems disturbed with Adam leaving. Please post an explanation soon!

I totally agree with the general concensus of the people that have posted messages on the BB about this issue...I think that Adam should have all the backing from Music3w and DEP, as he has made a brilliant effort with the construction of this site, and it would be a very big loss to see it pale into insignificance..All the best Johnny 2 bad http://www.demo3w.com/ubb/grrr.gif :shmame:

20th February 2001, 02:24 AM
I Agree,
without Adam, the bulletin board and the chat room, we'd all be lost.

20th February 2001, 06:39 AM
Bring back Adam.....you have my vote!!!

20th February 2001, 08:45 AM
I can only back up what everyone has been saying already.

Looking forward to Adams' return


20th February 2001, 02:45 PM
