I personally think CMC should tear up the whole site and start over again. What a depressing place, and I'm not even talking about the forums. (Which are depressing, yes, but.....) It's like they set up CMC with all this hoopla about supporting the "local music scene" (whatever that is) and having downloads available, and then, after a couple of "mixers" and getting the Watershed album up for eternal promotion, whoever is (was?) in charge just bailed and left the site there, promoting 2 year old albums and bands that don't exist anymore and out of town acts playing at Blues Station. That's it. Sure, every now and then, the main page changes, mostly to list shows at Blues Station, but over all, the site exists only to serve a fairly lame message board that's barely about music, much less "local" music. Mostly, it's a haven for the bored and the under-employed. The photos section, mostly self-promotion, but at least updated once upon a time, stopped two years ago, most of the bands listed on the site don't exist, and those band pages were *never* updated to begin with; some of the bands aren't even from the greater Columbus area. Frankly, if whoever is running it isn't into updating the site to at least reflect the current year, then what's the point? They clearly don't want the hassle of maintaining the site, or bothering with it too much. So why even have it? What's the point? It's not informational, it's not current, it barely seems functional. So pull the plug. Start over. The worst thing that will happen is that some people will suddenly have a little extra time during the day and everyone else will wander over here and either run the discussion lists to ruin or liven up the joint, depending on your take on things.
Now excuse me, but I hear that there's a Watershed CD out there. Anyone know where I can get a copy?
Matt, annoyed with it all.
