Just wondering if GMC has ever been approached for sposorship and advertising rights. I kinda like it this way without corporate influence, but am curious as to how this site would grow with it. I would think with 3k plus members and growing, Any dealer,mfg, ect. of musical equipment would be interested.

Just curious, What do you guys think?

Hey Mattacuk, howbout one of those photoshop drawings of some type of GMC signature amp or something! tongue.gif

yea, i dont think people who pay to join this site should have to put up with any ads at all. maybe the people who come here for free can see a banner or two? atleast that way the site is getting something from them tongue.gif

although i'd like to think that wouldnt happen tongue.gif

Hey Bondy, I think ya got me wrong. I don't want the ads either. Just wanted to see what eveybody thought.
I love this place and don't want it to turn in to a corporate portal as well.
Keep posting the No's!

I know this is a business and We all want the best for GMC. Just thought I'd bring up the topic! biggrin.gif

as I killed my tv a year ago (and got rid of cable) being so repulsed by modern media culture, you can pretty much imagine how appealing this notion is to me. I find the chore of my daily cleaning of the 60 pound cat box (for my 8 cats) much more appealing in comparison.

No ads on the website is definitally a bonus...
However, I wouldn't be against some kind of endorsement for teachers.
We could get cool stuff like Ibanez T-shirts to wear during the lessons and would advertise for them like that...

Ibanez are rubbish for that. I asked them for a t-shirt months ago and they havent replied biggrin.gif

On the whole I thoroughly agree with Fkalich, no ads please. smile.gif

What do you dislike about the t-shirt idea, it doesn't have it be Ibanez, Gibson is big on ads possibly them.
