Hello

I'd advice you to check out Wikimetal: http://www.wikimetal.info

It's a cross between Metal-archives and Wikipedia,
the goal is to list many bands in the metal genre.

The advantage over Metal-archives is you can add some fanzines and labels... And it's not as restrictive as wikipedia, or Discogs...

You could list all your releases (If it's metal)
It could be a nice way to promote your activity...

Cool.

Also, it took my much longer than it should've to figure out how to do certain things to the pages on there. Argh. I'm dumb.

I saw the page of your zine, cool!

In fact a tip is to cut the code of an existing page, and modify it... To to recreate everything...

Well now you know how to do it, the harder is done Smile

Yeah, I tried that and I was still too dumb to figure out how to add the page to a category. I've got it now though.

Yes, there are the stuffs at the end of the page...

I did few changes on the Aanal Behemoth page, so that it looks almost perfect according to the site:

Thanks. I was going to go back and mess with that, I will look at the code though. ^_^ Since I am bored I might try to add a few bands I have interviewed that aren't there yet.

I also added your country to the COD zine page

Yes, would be nice if you could add some bands.

Thanks. Yes, I am still learning how to do these things, I have no experience with Wikis, really.

I am supposed to be working right now but adding bands is more fun. Heh.

It looks quite useful, especially for getting contacts.

I presume that 'artist' means band member rather than painter though. Unless Abbath is really an excellant landscape artist...?

Abbath might be, you never know...

I did sort of wonder about that myself, though. I haven't really looked through much of that section.

Unrelated: Now, when I upload an image to replace an old one, it tells me to delete the previous version, but I don't think I have the ability to do so. I looked all over and there is no option for me to "delete" anything. I just wanted to make all the covers of my zine the same image dimensions. Oh well.

I think only the administrators are able to delete pictures...
It can avoid "terrorism"...

Yes, I thought that might be it.

But still, whenever you are uploading an image, it says
Quote :
Reminder: If you replace an image on a page with another, don't forget to also delete the old image file !
so it made me wonder about that.

I've already spent too much fucking time on there.

I appreciate the objectivity of it. (I.e., no reviews, no silly shit, just information.)

It's not so nice after all, brought me almost no visit in one year.

Other better sites to get metal visitors?
