I would also like to take this time to let you all know that the next edition of the BTB Newsletter is on it's way and should be up within the next 2 weeks, depending on a certain lazy moderator
Exactly right. As long as the writing in the BTB is good, I will read.
Some people on this forum (not going to use names) use to many graphics. Using graphics to advertise things on weekly shows is terrible, using thirty different colors to code one show is appalling. The bookers who do this do not impress me one bit, if anything they just turn me off more because their BTB's end up looking like a coloring book.
Just write good material and you will be alright, if you use all those graphics and images and shit, you will turn me and probably many other people off.
Also regarding this stuff before some people come in here and start sticking up for themselves and their lackluster layouts I just want to say something. I remember once someone brought up the crappy layouts and someone mentioned that it's because to many people are old school in their taste, and that these colorful things are new school, this is not true, there is no comparison at all between new school/old school, the colorful things just suck.
BTB Newsletter coming along is great, I really, REALLY, can not wait to read it. I better be in name association this time Reney
