Aboulutley agree S is the man when it comes to it, hes fair and square and even asks you what area you wanna target!, on and of used him for the last 7 years. and the prices aint bad at the end of the day give him 30 posters 15 days before job done sorted.

I've seen someone who posts on here tear down a rival night's poster. No names mentioned but I thought it was a bit dirty.

I dunno if it's just a ridiculous coincidence, but I'm really begining to think that some CUNT(S) has been ripping alot of the MKF posters for this Modeselektor gig. Most of the posters I've seen of ours that have been ripped down  it's normally the date that has been attacked. The thing that made me think it was malicious was the only posters that have been attacked were ours in a huge line by Bath Buildings and at the end of Picton Street, none of the other posters had a blemish on them!

Now this maybe a crazy coincidence but I've never experienced it before while promoting to this level.

@Scrampy... we've had this debate before haven't we? fuck sake, take note init!!!

that suprises me, all the mkf ones i've seen are intact and standing proud...they are nice looking so i can understand students nicking them...but if you are not going to want clubbers to go to the event, why not tear the whole thing down, not just the date? people confuse me with this!  Smashed

tbh there is no real answer to it, as much as we may be a community on here there will be others who don't post on here going out and fucking other promoters over. it's a shame but there it is.  Undecided

We got a letter from the council the other day, about xmas bin collections and recycling dates.
In it there was some blurb about recycling in Bristol, and it says that thanks to the amount of money generated/saved by more people recycling this year, Bristol City Cuntcil is now able to pay for 24hour street clean up teams...  Doh!

scrampy, weren't you given access to the promoters' forum so you could ask questions like this i.e. who the guy is who runs the poster sites?  it's not the first time you've posted about this and you've been told the same thing before. use the industry forum and this particular problem will be solved.

I have to admit, I ripped the corner of one of yours off, the one on the front of the blue mountain.. i felt a bit guilty after as it was a kneejerk reaction thing but to be honest as it was 2 days after we put it up, 1 day before our party and 15 days before your party i felt your placement was audacious to say the least, and i have to say lads, if ya did it again, as a knee jerk reaction, i'd probably do the same.. big up though, wouldnt dream of touching any of your others, especially not on that site, as im not in the business of promoting parties where people can have a good time just for the other elements of the business to create grief.. i can see perhaps your reasoning for sticking the one on the blue mountain up but as we only had 8 posters to stick up, the sites for which we carefully chose, i felt your eagerness to get yours up stuck in the throat somewhat.. especially as it was a free party!! sorry though.. lets try keep it one happy fam please!

i think the posterings quite healthy in bristol at the mo, has anybody been requested to remove any recently??

danny!!!!! you had 2 A0's on the front of the blue mountain, we put ours over 1 of yours. you really didnt need 2 right next to each other. 1 is enough (especially when there is only room for 2) and is probably actually more eyecatching because it stands out. (other nights operate in that club, and you have to understand that other promoters will need that space too)

yes indeed scrampo welcome to Bristol...

I personally think that the idea nowdays of putting posters up everywhere to promote a night is a little outdated..
If you think about how much money a promoters spends on posters and then the working time actually putting them up or paying Bear, its a total waste of money...
Heads all know what clubnight they will be going to without the use of posters.. (word of mouth is the best publicity)

if you feel the need to poster the night....
There are many newsagents and record shops, cafes etc that will display a poster for the length of the promotion... so you cant moan !!!
thus keeping shit tips like stokes croft a little bit tidier etc etc...

Promoters have argued about postering for years... its not gonna change...

yeah i know.. and i've said i'm sorry and i mean that mate.. i'm pretty sure you know exactly where our posters went for the night though and to be honest saul, as we'd seen each other a few times in our promotion rounds i took your (i'll say it again) 'haste' a bit personally.. especially as ya didnt have any posters in the club the night we packed 500 punters in.. ya know what i mean mate.. i'm just using the thread to demonstrate the honesty we use when it comes to the poster side of things and the maintainance of spots theyre put up in.. there is a kind of code and sometimes the edges get a little blurred.. my mentality at the time was that if people pass a poster a few times in a protected spot, ie blue mountain, bearing in mind alot of people whizz pass it on the bus or in cars or on bike or whatever, and then it's gone, it looks like the nights been and gone.. ya could have waited mate thats all, we didnt spend 2 squid (thats nearly a fooking pint!!) on it just to provide an underlay for yours.. it was still serving a purpose and as we'd started putting our posters up after you'd started and your night was 2 weeks later than ours i didnt get the impression it was just to promote your night.. i see the poster still there is in a bit of a state now.. sorry, i literally ripped about 3 inches off the bottom corner, and put one of our stickers on it, which i took off again the monday after our night.. anyway.. peace, i'm gonna come down n check out this ere modeselektor chap tonight as i hear he is a might grand.. blatantly you'll be nicely filled out so nae to worry.. just dont go over our bloody posters that's all!!  Kiss

edit: or take this as some personal diss to you or your party.. these things are ultimately what can make or break an event and i regard them as being pretty damn important, i'm airing this cos i'd like to avoid any posters going down for no reason, and ultimately, i'd like to think we can all look out for each others posters, i know i sometimes have been known to repaste a few posters for another event i like back up if theyve fell down when im in promo mode.. so, safety, dont feel no way, keep to the code of the streets Smiley

Hey guys if this iny bit of information helps you then all good, if not nevermind....

But in terms of gathering a text database, from one of these bulk text sites try this instead perhaps.
Vodafone pay as you talk simcards offer you FREE UNLIMITED text messages from 730pm Friday till Midnight Sunday if you spend £2 in the week on calls etc.

Its a bit of a c*&t having to send out the message on your phonio, but must phones let you send to all or in groups of 20 etc. its free at the end of the day, just a bit lengthy... Just an idea!  Two Thumbs

HI!!

Good ideas raised, hasn't anyone thought that the council might have someone walking up and down gloucester road all day taking down posters, ALSO, whilst putting up posters before christmas down by lakota, we saw an old guy taking down all the posters in sight, when we confronted him asking what the fock he was doing he came up with stuff but it making the place look like a slum, so the bored old geezer was just walking round taking down every poster he saw!!! Anyways, just to highlight that there are other people who might be taking them down other than promoters.....

we got presented with a £2000 pound bill for poster removal a few years ago, luckily they said so long as we took them down they wouldn't charge us.

having your posters gone over is depressing, taking them down yourself is soul destroying.

i had to appear in court back in southampton for flyposting.  although i admited to the council that it i took full responsibility for all the flyposting as i was the promoter they thought the venue had put me up as a fall guy so took the venue to court instead.  i had to stand in court as a witness and say the venue knew nothing about it and i did it all off my own back.  therefore the venue got off and because of a loophole of my being a witnes i couldnt be tried for the 'crime'!  Two Thumbs was funny the prosecuting solicitor saying "do you think you should be tried for this 'crime'"? and me saying "no i don't think anybody should be busted for it", he asked me the same question again trying to catch me out and admit something so the judge told him to shut up and stop wasting everyones time Laugh

Nah, Bristol City Council sent the Black Swan a letter with a site list telling us if they weren't removed we'd all be prosecuted under the criminal damage act or something or other - liable for up to £2500 per offence (i.e. per poster!!). That was a few days before our gig last saturday.  Doh!

Nice bit of anti-fly-posting with hot soapy water and a brush!  Laugh

i had to appear in court back in southampton for flyposting.  although i admited to the council that it i took full responsibility for all the flyposting as i was the promoter they thought the venue had put me up as a fall guy so took the venue to court instead.  i had to stand in court as a witness and say the venue knew nothing about it and i did it all off my own back.  therefore the venue got off and because of a loophole of my being a witnes i couldnt be tried for the 'crime'!  Two Thumbs was funny the prosecuting solicitor saying "do you think you should be tried for this 'crime'"? and me saying "no i don't think anybody should be busted for it", he asked me the same question again trying to catch me out and admit something so the judge told him to shut up and stop wasting everyones time Laugh

there does seem to be duvet vous posters fuckin everywhere, so respect for that hard work, although i still dont have a fuckin clue what music you play at your nights  Bad Teeth

On a side note, somone appears to be rippin down the small number of posters we actually have on the glos road/cromwell road areas, since i go to catch the bus every morning and put some up, but find them ripped down more often than not and before anyone says the council, the council remove the posters completly they dont tear it in half and leave most of it stuck to the wall/bus stop etc... So somones obviously doing that or its just pissed students, either way its fuckin annoying.

internet/mobile etc promotion is the way though i reckon.




Could well be middle aged angry men. I've caught several ripping posters down andjust chucking them on the ground. It's a 'getting older/hating the youth' thing.

If you catch middle aged men pulling your posters down, pull their trousers down. If there's one thing middle aged men can't stand it's a low waistband. It's like fucking kryptonite to them.

WHO CONTROLS THE 'LEGAL' PSTER SIGHTS and does anyone have a contact for them please!!

thanks

I'd like it as well, I'm too lazy to poster.  Although will they put up my crappy A3 posters?

will keep you informed. my mate is working on it and there are quite a few property owners up for it, including some prime centre locations. not aware of any legal walls operating at the mo.

it also turns out that the council is free to impose pretty much any restrictions on builders erecting those big hoardings that you get round building sites. opens some very interesting possibilities...

Hi Duchess, Im sorry your posters have been ripped down but honestly, it was not us. We wouldn't do that. I appologise for one we covered up in montpellier which i remember because I debated it at the time. and to be honest if Ide have known it was a charity night i definately wouldn't have done it.  Also, I had no idea there was an Etiquette.  And for the record our posters are being ripped down too.

Trying to promote via posters without offending someone has prooved really hard and we have tried our best to stick to what will work best without pissing too many people off. For example if there's a busy wall, we'de place ours over one of which there most duplicates. I appologise for that one poster, which I guess you have re-done, but please don't blame us for any other poster issues you have because we havent touched any of your other posters.

Thanks

Hey Matto!

Cheers for apology, and sorry if i was a bit harsh...I'm sure your thoroughly great people! Just got a bit carried away reading all those anger rants and thought i'd chuck my 2 cents in!

My main gripe is the actual getting outta the house to go and put the bloody things up in the middle of the frickin night and then getting up for work a couple of hours later! I'm starting to go slightly demented from the day glo.

Best of luck with your night mate!

Not originating from Bristol, run nights for 7/8 years.. different in every place. Different rules, different promoters, everything is different, so I guess you just got to stay alert and aware of what people tell you.

At first I didn't realise that there was somebody who puts up posters for everyone until someone told me I was postering their sites  Laughing

But I didn't feel angry towards them and when mine were postered over I didn't feel that I was hard done by, I just understood that other people are paying for those slots, people are waiting for space so that theirs can be put up, it's not fair to skank other promoters advertising space! They have paid for it!!

If you don't like it.. Start your own site  innit!  Two Thumbs

having just used S.. I think he does a great service and I'm definitely gonna be using him more.

In terms of ripping other promoters posters down, or postering over in date nights.. No debate m8.. it's a NOOOOOO!

in terms of postering over S's spots, expect to get your night postered over! I think that's fair enough

Me and sarah possiblly caught one of the poster ripper downers a few weeks ago, it was a pissed off old man who was walking down chelt road ripping down posters and even flyers stuck to lamposts, we even saw him almost kill himself crossing the road to rip one off on the other side, tried to get a video but he got a bit scared of us slowly following him so went into a phone box. he was sketchy as, possibly not all there upstairs.

He left a certain promotors posters up though...intersting   Tut Tut

although i was guilty of fly posting when i promoted.. i think nowadays a poster on a wall-tree-lampost looks utter shite and makes bristol look rubbish...
i dont even think it increases the numbers at a club night, it is more to put the resident dj's (who normaly do the postering) names in the public domain...
Things have moved on from postering campaigns... like posting your nights on forums like this...
I say tear all the posters down...

I don't agree at all. Posters are essential for promotion. Nights for which we have done less postering have resulted in less people in. There may be other factors involved but the less postering often means less people, especially for newer nights. Established nights often don't need them as much as their regular crowd know where they are, when etc but posters are essential. The comment about resident dj's postering to get their name up though  Undecided. They put them up because they are running/involved in the night, not for plugging themselves
