As for EXHQ, if you made it with Wordpress, you could then have a blog talking about your music.

The youtube channel is pretty much self sustaining now. Get about 5-6 new subscribers daily to it without having to anything.

I don't think there's much more you can do with this site and the youtube and everything... even down to you finding the Heligoland font! Just milk mp for as much free stuff as possible and any other non-existent prints and promises (ha)...

I think theres a gap in the market to cater for people that want a broad network like Facebook but that isnt fb, isn't privacy disrespecting, isn't customisation-al tering etc etc

I'm the exact same about Facebook. Even though I have to use it most days in work for managing different clients social media profiles. I never use it personally

Like Twitter don't like Facebook, dislike Facebook almost to the point where I've thought about how to make something for all the people that wanna leave fb with their privacy intact

But that's probably the most important aspect. Most people not arsed with forums anymore. One might even suggest whether to even bother with bulletin boards..

MA.IE is built using Wordpress. You can make the most simple to the most complex sites using it. Great for beginners and devlopers too.

I do have some ideas about how to promote the site, but I'm going to leave any heavy promotion for a few months, while I work on building up content on the new blog and wiki
