There were things to legitimately complain about, but now the only thing left on the "to-do" list is custom templates, and as I've said, once all these people get a hold of those, they will begin making their sites look terrible, so have at it people. Bandzoogle will have the last laugh. All I can say is keep up the good work, I'm looking forward to the pre-made templates every week. I think that's a great addition. I'm hoping to see one I want to change to so I can make a switch on Jan. 1st. Keep it up. :agree:

It's great that BZ is putting together more templates... can't get to some supersonic site template without moving along and simply making more templates... the best thing is to use the tools you have to make your site better than it is. Honestly most don't. If your site sucks it's cause you suck. Be a little more supportive. :agree:

justrocks: fact is, simple template styles are what 98% of or members want. This template showcases the image you upload, rather than the template design. If thats not what you want, we also have many completely different styles (around 600 variations in all). If you have helpful input on the type of style you are looking for, email me directly at chris@bandzoogle.com. I read and respond to every suggestion I get. This year, we have prioritized functional features (like selling downloads, podcasting, etc) over design options. The template system is now what our whole team is focused on. In the near future there will be many more design options, so you can have as original a site as you want.

There's a difference between not liking something and something sucks. I don't like tomatoes. Some people do. If everyone hated them, they would suck. Some people have stated they like the new template so it doesn't suck. * I am excluding Canadian Tomatoes as we all know they Rule (see other forum posts);)

There's nothing wrong with the template, it's good and doesn't suck. These postings that tell us about the new templates are great. I love seeing them each week. You guys should close these so that "art critics" can't comment. You know what they say about critics, "they critique because they can't do it themselves". 90 percent of the people crying for custom templates that they can do for themselves are going to have ugly horrible sites. You watch. Keep up the good work guys.

All the templates are cool depending on your style, including this one. I just loved the fact we can work with css, that way you can make your page more original and unique. i love my site and glad that u still have the option to do further customizing to all of them.

I think Bandzoogle and it's team are doing an exceptional job trying to cater for everyone and their needs, including mine. Well done. I believe a system to enable us to have creative freedom of designs could quite possibly be the best solution for Bandzoogle and it's members, including myself.

How do you get to be a "Featured" band on your site?
Joe Montgomery
Posted by Joe Montgomery on Sep 10 2008 12:06 PM
Hey Fanatics. This has come up a lot before. Enter "featured bands" in the search box above for the threads. Basically, they just work their way through the sites... going for the ones that use the site features to the best ends.... good photos, layouts, etc. They are trying to sell their services so any site that shows them off would be qualified. Or you can send them $10,000. That might work, too.;)
Beau Shirk
Posted by Beau Shirk on Sep 10 2008 1:25 PM
More of the same. Simple yes, but not very original in the sense that it looks like all of the other simple templates that have been available for the past 3 years. My suggestion: Don't create templates from templates. Simple does not mean thinking inside the box.

This is an alright layout...but I was expecting more eye appeal. Somthin different...seems original still...wouldn't mind seein layouts a little more advanced. But in all it's still a good template...good job guys.

:)Thanks for the simplicity of this design. I know Bandzoogle is for bands but I have a couple of businesses I'm setting up sites for and these more simple designs are terrific for them. Keep up the great work. Can't wait to see what you do next.

Your supposed to add the creativity. Do you want them to add more templates that have palm trees and giant leaves on them? Maybe another with a giant blimp? Those are limiting. Their finally making nice templates and you find something to complain about. Props to Bandzoogle.

It's called freeviral its like collab promotion effort for all type of sites to help promote each other. Read more info here: I already signed up. Here's a quote from the site: When someone signs up from your site, they must first click on your classified ad which will open a new window leading to your main website. They will have to wait a few seconds for the code to appear on a separate frame at the top of the screen. While they wait, they will have time to read what you have to offer! This can equate to more sales, down line members, affiliate sign-ups, ezine subscribers, etc.! Each classified ad will have to be clicked on to retrieve a unique code meaning that you will receive FREE Traffic throughout all 6 levels!!! I'm not spamming, i just read the new post from my homepage and thought i should at least pass the word around and start my down line as well =D if you do decide to use this, please use my referral link: http://www.FreeViral.com/?r=229651 you should make a sticky of this too with my referral link :D

Thanks everyone for your feedback. Again, we are working on the custom templating system now, and these weekly new templates won't delay that. It is our main focus right now. On a related note; I am out of the office this week, so next week I will post 2 new template styles. If you have suggestions for styles you would like to see, please post in the "suggestion box" forum.

If you think you can get a better deal somewhere else or hire someone to make your own "dream come true" web site, that's the route you should take, other than that, why don't you have patience and let the BZ team do their thing. Stop thinking me me me. This site is 10 fold better than it was just a year ago. :rolleyes:

I don't read the community posts all that often, but when I do, and in the past when I've tried to start a conversation to share ideas, I find myself reading posts in which people are telling each other things like "you suck," or "it sucks," or "you idiots..." Perhaps I'm getting too old for all of this (I'm 47) but I find it very difficult to believe that those who lack gentility and decorum in how they interact with other human beings are going to be very successful as artists. If that's old fashioned and uncool, then I embrace being old fashioned and uncool. Thank you, Bandzoogle, for providing a great service -- quite possibly the most versatile and responsive web-based service I have ever used. Thank you also to my fellow artists who are here to do good work and share ideas for the good of the musician community. My request to those who feel the need to be degrading toward others and engage in destructive criticism: it's not helping any of us, including you.

once just: I did mention custom templates last year, but I then decided to prioritize functional changes over design. Our development list is not written in stone, it can change depending on what we feel our members would benefit from the most. For example, I had to decide if the MP3 store and move to the Amazon S3 service were more important than giving more design options. The answer is clear; $430,000 of MP3s were sold since we added the store this year. Our servers are faster and more reliable. That said, we know a large chunk of members want flexibility, and that is what we are focused on right now.

Hadn't really paid much attention to this thread. But after reading through it .... all I can say is WOW! Funny how the "it sucks / you suck for not agreeing with me" crowd lashes out at others without regard and no hint of humility. You know ... the bad asses with that who gives a "f@#%" mentality. Straight up - for the money, Bandzoogle is about the best out there ; perfect for someone like me who's no computer wiz and knows next to nothing about web site design, etc. Hell, I don't like all of the templates either .... but I don't feel the need to stoop to "they suck" for the simple reason that I don't like them. Geeeze! Maybe I'm just too old school. But humuilty and common courtesy rule in my book. Now .... for those who want to diss, slam, trash and name call me for what I just posted, knock yourselves out ; as evidenced in this thread, it seems that you have a gift for it.

I hesitate to pitch in here because I don't want to make this "drama" over the templates any worse...but seriously what's all the fuss over? The templates are great! If you don't like the new one... don't use it. We all had full access to this site. We all saw what we were buying into and now people want to complain about getting what they got? And why so negative in the public places? If you have a beef with Bandzoogle do you have to trash it to everyone. It's totally cool if you don't like a template. But I think praise should be public and critizism (sp) should be descrete, not silent but careful. Good job Bandzoogle. I love this site.

One thing i'd like to see more are templates that are geared towards individual electronic music artists. I'm unsure if I'm the only one here, but most of the templates seem quite "grungie" and "industrial". I know there is the same size market if not bigger of electronic music producers out there. Some color/theme examples would be. www.robbierivera.com www.tiesto.com www.pauloakenfold.com Just thought i would throw that out there.

For the record.. just because I say a Template sucks it does NOT mean I am not happy with Bandzoogle... Fact is I am.. you have to be honest with yourself, and yes, I use to be a web designer but I work 16 hours Producing Music so I ain't got the time no more. Now I have an opinion and I'm man enough to say ""it sucks"" now check out freewebtemplates.com and other free web templates and that's what Bandzoogle should aim for.. they are not amazing just more updated.. and yes, design matters in business, ask any business person.. so don't tell me what's what cus I speak my mind... Anyway, I know Bandzoogle are doing their best and I'm grateful, they are the best Band site for sure.. and I've checked them all out! But if new templates don't come I might design my own cus all my beatmaker friends make my site look like childs play... Oh, and I just SOLD a track to Atlantic Records :>) so I'm climbing baby.. as I thought I would.. peace..

AntroniX: freewebsitetemplates are essentially custom made sites. To make them look as good as their previews you would need to have a web designer do a considerable amount of work to integrate your content. And then, you wouldn't have access to make changes easily. We are working on improving options and page layout features, but they will have certain restrictions compared to a completely custom site so that you can add content easily.

[quote="AntroniX"] Now I have an opinion and I'm man enough to say ""it sucks"" so don't tell me what's what cus I speak my mind... [/quote] Nothing wrong with speaking your mind bro. Truth is, it takes a bigger man to express their dislike without slamming. You gotta understand how it comes across when you toss "it sucks". The individuals who run this site are simply offering another choice for those who might be interested. And saying "it sucks" to those who are doing their very best is not exactly a positive gesture. You said yourself that Bandzoogle is about the best band site out there ..... and they are. So why sink to "it sucks"? Has Bandzoogle pissed you off or something? If so, no one's twisting your arm to stick around. Plenty of other band sites out there, but none like BZ ( I've checked'em out .... BZ smokes them hands down ). I aint hating on ya man. Just calling it like I see it. If ya feel the need to lash out at me, that's fine. And if so, I'm curious to see whether or not you'll do your lashing with tact and class ..... or if you'll just "keep it real". By the way - CONGRATS on the sale of your track to Atlantic records! Way cool :agree:

I was really bored so I read all the way through this thread. God , I must have been really bored. Here are some observations: Every stupid, negative or thoughtless comment doesn't need a response. In fact, the best way not to lend credibility to something is to ignore it. If you don't like a template, then don't use it. The staff at Bandzoogle have put together such a large library of templates that if you can't seem to find one that works for you then you should probably go somewhere else. On a personal note, I've never received as much for my money from anything else in my life and I'm almost 50 years old. Bandzoogle Rocks!!

That's your opinion. Bandzoogle need fresh templates end of. Otherwise Bandzoogle will notice Artists/Producers goin elsewhere. But I am willing to wait cus I found a Bandzoogle template that works well :>) As for Bandzoogles features, they have more than other other bandsite that's for sure. And also, it's better to be honest and say what you feel.. otherwise Bandzoogle wouldn't know what people want if we said nothing.. so you're wrong. We do have to speak up..
