Default Harsh and murky signature rules.

I see musicbanter doesn't allow
a simple link that enables one to
promote ones music in ones
Apparantly one has to wait three
months to chance doing this at
a moderators discretion.
It seems pretty harsh. Very anti
freedom of speech. One is allowed
immediatly to promote someone else's obscure music but
not ones own.
Oh, and one is allowed to immediatly post a link to Last.fm
but is allowed NO mention of
ones own music in ones own signature.
Give it three months they say in
the official rules in a very grey
area way.
As I Said in another thread, Charles
Dicken's London is very much alive today in the U.S,A.
Vive la freedom Musicbanter!
link removed by mod, please read our rules regarding signature links.

You don't like it there are plenty of other forums out there.

You're on a privately run forum where you agree to the rules when you sign up.
Don't agree with the rules, go somewhere else. There's your free speech right there.

The fact that you immediately wish to promote your own music a moment after arrival here validates this rule. This isn't a place to promote your music. We want people here who will discuss, get involved in and share their love of music, not people who will say "listen to my music" before we even have the first clue who you are.

So the rule is there for a very specific reason: to stop people doing what you're trying to do. There are plenty of other avenues for you to disseminate your music through: never heard of YouTube?

Sorry, but Music Banter isn't the United States. We're an international forum, with our own constitution. And "freedom to promote one's music" is not one of the amendments.

Figure it out. It's very easy. It's in the same spot as your avatar settings.

Also, I love Oporto. Great city.
