Yes, both is good. Surely we can be bothered to post here once in a while?
Bit cross with the "tell them to come over here (Facebook) brigade.
This website is for us, not designed as an advertising platform for a gazillion $$ money making machine like facebook.
The band pay for this website, and for this forum. If we dont use it, I dont see any reason why they shouldn't just get rid of it and have a stagnant website with no interaction.

I'm one of the guilty ones too. I much prefer posting here but my problem is most of the time that I have time to post, I'm on my phone and posting here isn't as easy as on Facebook when you're on a phone.

I guess the one good thing about Facebook is that, because of its lack of privacy on some things, when people comment on something on the band's page, many of their friends/neighbours, etc. see it in their own newsfeed and therefore the band's name is in their newfeeds...free advertising. lol

I hope peeps post abit more often here, wouldn't want to see this forum disappear.

Doing my best to come back here more often. Couldn't fathom losing this board! It's where so many friendships have started for a great many of us.
