I think I've had enough to be honest.

I understand he's been around for many years, and I've not..but I still dont get it...why the fuck is he allowed to cover up other people's posters with his?Huh?
Because he's getting paid for it? or because I dont pay him to put up mine?? (£1 a poster Huh Doh! Doh! Doh!)

I put up some A0 and A1 last night on top of OUT OF DATE posters round Montpelier...and they were all gone and/or covered up by his this morning.
FUCK THAT!

if he wants to play this game I'm ready to play the "you cover up my posters I cover up yours"..that's stupid but he doesnt know who he's playing

Mate, those sites with all the big A1 and A0 posters are run by "somebody".
If you stick your posters up there without paying for it then they will always paste over them again, not out of malice to you, but because somebody else has paid for that spot... (therefore, it is also worth noting that it aint necessarily the responsibility of whoever's poster is over yours the next day, as the placement of posters is decided by the people who maintain the poster sites, and not the individual promoters).   Doh!

ull love the stuff i have just bought from E-Bay then, i used to use it in plymouth & it works very very well. basicly its like super-glue mixed with sticky gell that dryed transparent & theres no way of removing it, what you do is stick ur poster up, wait an hour or so, come back & paste it over your poster, no-one  will be sticking over your poster for quite some time. the only stuff that can stick onto it is itself, so u can go back & re-stick a more up2 date poster over the top of ur old 1, its rockin stuff, it is £50 for a tub of it but its worth it, u cant even sprey on it, its totaly anti-vandle, anti-weather & anti-stick

BAJA are a different problem. they're a big machine with a lot of money spent on advertising, paying outside people to put their posters up.

Here I'm talking about independent promoters like us (I think) who also post on this forum.
I would expect a bit more of respect and some sort of sense of community.

CALM THE FUCK DOWN! dude, jesus!, could have been anyone, there is someone going round bristol putting posters up 4 other promoters & people that havnt been in bristol long who are promoting dont know what's going on with it all like me.who do u pay to put your posters up 4 u? infact who does everyone pay to put up posters for them, its not just your night n duvet vous, its all of the more established nights, bashout, blackout, dub from atlantis, tribe of frog! & the list goes on & on & on & on, if i was paying someone to stick posters up 4 me & i found out he was stickin them up over other peoples posters then i'd stop paying him & do it myself or get someone else 2 do it.

there alll good nights including yours, just need to sort this postering thing out bcus its gettin really silly now, i mean im spending £20 a day on posters & not even gettin the other side of bristol done, it wasnt this bad a few months ago, it has gotten worse, not just for me but for all more underground promoters

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...

yes - whether you like it or not he runs the big postering and is in contact with the council so its the best way to get them up.

your glue stuff sounds greedy, childish and un-enviromentally friendly and will possibly get your legs broken in the end.

Its all a joke, especially the little fuck wits he keeps taking mine down before the event is over in cafe, newsagents, takeaways.... my night mostly is completely diffrent to others but because the space aint there some cunt takes it down to put theres up. And yeah just like everyone else i pay for the posters outa my own pocket, and hope to regain the funds from door entry on the night. A0's and A1's i give to some geezer who puts most others up, A, fuck it why should i get caught doing it, B its more convienient, and C he knows whats out a date and whats not so leave it to the man that can.

But redoing stokes croft to Horfield because some little wanker has no shame in pulling other people posters down before the events happened will get a slap if caught, cause theres no need for it, is there. either spend more time looking at the ones that are there, that are out of date, or if theres no room fuck off and find somewhere else to put it!!!

Sorry to offend any1, rant over........

Personally I'm really starting to doubt the value of street posting any more, the posters stay up all of about 10 mins and my co-promoter got gripped by the fuzz (sounds painful...  Bad Teeth) last night doing it... Think we may stick to the strictly 'legal' sites, ie shops and that, just not worth the hassle.

I have had one or two occasions where people have covered over my posters (mostly round UWE where I work so that is very silly...) but I have had words with the relevant promoter and it has all been sorted! It's mostly just people who are being paid to do it that do this kind of thing, I think all the actual promoters know the score and who wants to get into stupid poster wars?

Pete Kraymon wins 'most sensible post' award. This is another debate that goes round and round (and round and round...) every year at the busy times (return of the students, xmas/nye) so I can't be arsed to say much, but:

S's sites are tolerated and so are the closest thing we have to the legal flyposting areas everyone's always banging on about.

Almost everyone uses him (if you don't know which are his sites, ask around. It won't take you long).

If we all used him, perhaps the lack of flyposters in other more aggravating (for the council) areas might mean a change in their current heavy-handed approach. Who knows?

Plus he's out every day and his posters stay up (the two things aren't unconnected). Much better value for money than doing it yourself.

Agreed. We used S for Tricky Disco on a number of occasions and he always does a good job/it made life easier for myself and Nick. Postering is a pain in the arse, so you might as well pay someone who's in cahoots with the council so it gets done and your arse doesn't get roasted over an open fire.

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.

thus keeping shit tips like stokes croft a little bit tidier etc etc...

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

my rant over... now all f@@k off.... Cheesy


Hav 2 agree to a large extent here Cridgesy, even in London postering is more of a way to keep old derelict buildings stuck together than to advertise anything to anyone... to similar degree, flyers have dropped in their impact rates.  Word of mouth is always good and a supportive word from a group of happy clubbers will probably go much further than a poster or flyer.  On the comment made  :twothumbs :up there ^^ about people "owning" posting sites, let me tell you catagorically and for the record "No-One Owns Any Independent Postering Sites In Bristol." These are the words of the Council, not me, heard with my own ears from a council rep... here's the deal in Brizzle as was last discussed : -
In Bristol, any form of postering outside of the properly regulated advertising boards is considered as illegal fly-posting, there are certain allowances made for people using "non-permanent" fixatives but (and this is the important bit) In the coming year, the council is considering a trial run of dedicated promotional boards solely for the independent music/arts promoters in Bristol - These boards are proposed to be installed between the Horfield end of Gloucester Rd. & Stoke's Croft - and promoter's found defacing any of the sites along this route (especially with permanent fixatives) are running a massive risk of being noted and refused permission to use the new advertising sites when they become active.

This was a statement, as i said, from a Bristol City Council representative for the BMF and he seemed pretty adamant that once the scheme goes into piloting, any posters found outside of the specified spots will incurr serious penalties.  So to re-iterate, no-one in Brizzle owns jack so if there's someone out there monopolising space - either deal with them personally or do the easy thing and poster elsewhere until the council boards appear (if they ever do.. oh yeah, and of course avoid Gloucester Rd!)  I did raise a few points over this at the time as i can see already that there's gonna be some really tight competition over space.  I mean, look at this thread for a start - There's so much space in Bristol to poster without covering anyone else's but still we have these problems, I fail to see how offering a very small number of sanctioned spaces is going to make things any easier.  Same number of nights/posters - less number of spaces - people getting ridiculously huge posters vs. other ppls more sensible A3s and A2s therefore leaving less space for everyone else... i think you can see where this is goin.

Like i started with, it's kinda academic these days anyway.  It's very rare that a clubber today sees a poster and thinks "Yeah! I'm Goin There Tonight!!" now it's really more about word of mouth and getting media based advertising - such as a listing on Kiss (they've been pretty good at this recently) 1-Xtra, Radio 1, Venue, OOH and other mags.  Web-based advertising and a mobile mailing list are also more effective ways of advertising in this age.

Anyhoo, plenty to chew on there.

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)

I disagree. I'm definitely a 'head', and I do of course find out about a lot of the nites I go to via word of mouth etc...BUT, I definitely still check posters all the time, esp the larger ones and also posters in shop windows (particularly on Park St).


yeh get this, theres many big poster spots & every single god damn day i have 2 go down there & stick my poster back up (over the one thats covered mine) its a different nights, mostly all the big ones that u see everywhere DUVET VOUS is one of the many monkey knife fight is another. every day i have to drag myself all the way down to st wourborgs, montpellier, st pauls & stokes croft & its starting 2 do my head in, i've got other parts of bristol 2 cover rather than wasting my time & money postering the same spots again & again.

im gonna one day catch this person in the act & have a right go, those a0 posters cost £1 per poster & to get 20 a day is stupid



rant over

FUCK OFF SCRAMPY!!!! we never did that! you're confusing the fact that we PAY to have big flyposters put up, like many promoters! he will post over yours if you put them on top.
DONT EVEN TRY TO ACCUSE US

CALM THE FUCK DOWN!

how can you accuse someone of putting their posters over yours in one breath, then tell them to calm down in the next? You're a prat scrampy, and your suggestion of using bombproof paste is fucking stupid as well - how to really really piss off the council in one easy step and make them even less tolerant of postering than they already are.

caught in the act a minute ago: DUVET VOUS covering our poster on a phonebox.  I'M SO ANGRY! I'M SO ANGRY! I'M SO ANGRY!  Tut Tut

if there is a poster that is NOT out of date, LEAVE IT. simple
there is enough space in the whole city. sort it out.



wow, that re-opened the age old debate eh?

appollologgies for the poster cover clu / anyone else who wants to vent spleen, and yes its the age old case of got some one else to do it for us, thought he knew the rules of the game though ? ?  bugger

congrates to the council for this 'we'r happy with posters here' pilot scheme if it gets off the ground and works. There are plenty of shops that'll put up posters alot charge per weeks though?(which is far enought)  to play devils advocate, a night can put up a poster in a shop for £2 for 2 weeks or buy some paste / blu tack and get 400 up (we do put up in shop but to keep cost down onlt free ones)
until a realistic alternative provides its self i know which i'd do

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.

I still don't get how someone can "own" an illegal flypostering site, just because they get paid for it doesn't mean they own sites or have more rights over it than others. I'd hazard a guess that there have been ppl postering longer than him as well. hmmmmmmmm If he had legal sites set up in his name that he officially owns then that's a different matter but i'd bet a fair bit of cash that itsn't the case.

Personally I'd love to meet this postering man of bristol to have a proper conversation about whether he has a right to these sites just because he seems to poster first (there are several sites i know he uses that he was not the first to use)

Also anyone who's postering over in date posters is a twat whether being paid for it or not. It's only going to create a backlash and I understand why!

i wish we could, but we don't pay them, we've just got a team of dedicated umpaDuvetlumpas who do loads for us. i do do some postering but within the club night good flyposting code of practice. thought about getting matey who put up the biguns on the case but not sure if he'd do a3's (the cheap printing option) an i think little and oftern has a better effect / coverage.personally when i see 10 - 20 a1 or a0's up all together i don't pay them much attention.

i fully agree dude, been doing this on and off for 7/8 yrs we've had our posters rinsed a few times and its really shit / disheartening / expensive / time wasting, at least theres hijack now to so its not quite as faceless as it used to be.f.

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.

Nobody "owns" the spot, the poster guy uses thoses spots to help the promoters, he probably has to recollection of what posters he's putting up, he'll just assume that he put the previous poster/s up and go over it when the date has expired. We pay him to do it for us because he knows where all these spots are in the city because we can't be fucked to find them, it's just easier this way.

I cud name and shame a few people ive witnessed taking down a various range of material to replace with their own..
but
..i just think its a bit sad, even with Hijack which is supposed to support all promoters Together.
- people still feel that they deserve to be better promoted than others by being ruthless, it doesnt actually help!

Birmingham nearly lost its music scene because promoters decided it was a type of war rather than a party and in the end the music suffered.

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 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!!!

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

did they put theirs up over yours? because if not that is fucking lame.


Edit: although, fair play for admitting it at least.

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

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.

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...

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

 Smiley

But in fairness he doesn't own any of the spots so why should he exclusive rights over them?

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

yeah i'd add who ever is promoting the shitmat night....thanks for ripping down and covering up all the posters that our FUNDRAISER night has spent our hard earned bucks on!! Cheers for that guys.



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


Thanks

Matto


mate charity night or not if its still in date leave alone.......

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

 Smiley

But in fairness he doesn't own any of the spots so why should he exclusive rights over them?

I always thought this too  Undecided

Same here, this is all illegal postering after all, there are no sites he has bought from the council or agreed that he can poster there so he does not own any of them! Claiming to be the first to poster there is a bit lame imo as a) I bet all the good spots have been used for years and a long time before he started b) what if someone else finds a new site, starts postering there and then he posters over them claiming it's his site?! There is no proof of who found it first as I said earlier they are all illegal fly postering sites, they are not official sites for posters.

If he gets permission from the council for specific posters then that would make a difference, or if he bought on of the billboards that get postered for himself then fair enough, he would "own" that site but afaik (and i know a lot of ppl that use him as it's easier) he does not do either of these things. I'm getting sick of this argument, it's been going on so long!!

Word. It's like me claiming I own the poster rights for the junction boxes on Dean Lane because I lived there for years, so it' OK for me to stick my posters over others.

LOL that's funny as fook mate

Just thought I'd say.. whatever night it is that promotes Semtex @ Mu Mu's (lol) are a bunch of cunts. They systematically went around Bristol postering over loads of my Livestyles posters... Only reason I can think of why they'd do it was because their night was on the same as ours.. But end of the day.. can't see many Livestyles heads making over to Mu Mu's to see semtex.. Still bang out of order.. Buch of cunts.. If anyone feels the need to rip any of their posters down or poster over theirs in future.. I for one won't be saying shit..

P.S.. Big up to everyone who made it down to Livestyles & not Semtex  Slayer

My street team chalked all over Cotham and I got hassle from the BBC & The Hill pub. How fucking lame do you have to be to call chalking on a wall criminal damage. We'll all be dead in 100 years so just keep on keeping on.
 

 Huh

yeah what ?!  speak english booooyyyy!

you have to remember that some nights have other people put their posters up for them and these people might not give a shit and just see it as a job -  they may not have been properly briefed in the ways, as they are not promoters themselves.

Be careful not to instantly name and shame the night

 Script Script Script it's easy for someone not used to it to put them up in a hurry too and not check dates etc, it's def not always down to promoters at all as it's often other ppl doing the actual postering, unless you follow the posterer around the whole time you can't make sure they don't do anything wrong!

whether you like it or not he runs the big postering and is in contact with the council so its the best way to get them up.

Pete Kraymon wins 'most sensible post' award. This is another debate that goes round and round (and round and round...) every year at the busy times (return of the students, xmas/nye) so I can't be arsed to say much, but:

S's sites are tolerated and so are the closest thing we have to the legal flyposting areas everyone's always banging on about.

Almost everyone uses him (if you don't know which are his sites, ask around. It won't take you long).

If we all used him, perhaps the lack of flyposters in other more aggravating (for the council) areas might mean a change in their current heavy-handed approach. Who knows?

Plus he's out every day and his posters stay up (the two things aren't unconnected). Much better value for money than doing it yourself.

This is so true, this is the easiest way of the council controlling it, you get Mr S to do it they go where he thinks the council tollerate it and potentially stops them being placed like this...



When you pay him to do it, its not just the hardwork your paying for but the piece of mind that they are more secure (unless the cunt that puts up the Syndicate Posters over yours) or any other promoter who just donest give a fanny fuck.

This thread makes me sigh with relief that i don't have to worry about all these politics anymore......except in work where i am the poster/flyer referee!  Bad Teeth
It's amazing how the same thing can be debated about over and over again.
Simple rules really; don't cover in date posters, don't hog all the poster space by putting up more than one in the same spot!
I've only ever covered one poster.......I confessed to Ned Duvet that I covered one of theirs because they had three posters on one bin.........(even tho mine was the first on it that week- but then Break! covered it Tut Tut)
But now it's behind me I can laugh about it all!

Now, now....play nicely children!

Maybe Bristol, like Sao Paolo, should take a brave step forward and ban all advertising and such like from the city walls?

Would the city be a better or worse place for it.....?

I said "Yes, but I can't remember my name or where I live."
Then they left. It is just a job, but any twat can do it so....FUCK THE POLICE.

Officer: "Are you pasting?"
Saul: "what?"
Officer: "ARE YOU PASTING"
Saul: "Pasting?"
Officer: Did you put that poster up?!"
Saul: "What poster?"...

is it a legal place though? i'm not convinced tbh. The boards are put up by a well meaning group, but i'm not sure they if you put a poster up you are exempt from the laws on littering and flyposting. in other words its just the same as putting it on any surface.

i think they would be different if the boards were managed by the town/parish council, as in the traditional parish notice board. The manner in which those stokes croft boards have been put up and are controlled seems far less managed, frankly they look a mess now.

Because AFAIK they aren't actually legal boards, just tolerated. Even with SITA and EH passing through there at least 3 times a day, you've also got to contend with the numerous nutbags and concerned members of the public that take them down too. They aren't there for promoters to advertise nights in the first place, they're community boards for allsorts. I think people are confusing the fact that it's OK to put them up there because they're under the impression SITA will leave them alone, but they won't - I've seen them take them down on numerous occasions, just like any other wall or surface.

Cadbury clears its flyer bay on the 1st of the month, do they have a similar rule for posters? If the HG dont have a specific date on them maybe it's just the staff removing them.

GRRR....

whoever the sad, petty person whos been removing the SmokeLife posters and flyers from legal places......  Tut Tut

how pathetic are you?


if you think its funny depriving people from a choice of what they'd like to choose to do with their evening's go join the labour or nazi parties....

I put a festie fundraiser poster on the boards on stokes croft at 7pm, walked home after our meeting and it was gone. Whats the fcuking point!! I didnt put it over anyone elses and I'm just gona put another one up!!!  I'M SO ANGRY!

The PRSC board you are lucky if they last an hour, it's not rival promoters trust me.

Why are they there then if they get removed?

Because AFAIK they aren't actually legal boards, just tolerated. Even with SITA and EH passing through there at least 3 times a day, you've also got to contend with the numerous nutbags and concerned members of the public that take them down too. They aren't there for promoters to advertise nights in the first place, they're community boards for allsorts. I think people are confusing the fact that it's OK to put them up there because they're

 under the impression SITA will leave them alone, but they won't - I've seen them take them down on numerous occasions, just like any other wall or surface.

There is a 'whats on' section on the PRSC board actually. And everyone elses posters were still there, just not mine. ah well... maybe we have a fan club.

blah, blah, blah... just put more posters up, deal with it. It'll never end. Any poster that goes on any wall, without permission = illegal.

There's also a lot of odd balls about, don't take it personally, just put them back up!

our posters are going up in LEGAL places .....  and its funny that someones posters go up on the same day ours disappear... 

its just sad that some self-centered idiots with illusions of grandeur think they have the right or some kind of claim to the club 'scene' and think its amusing not to give the public anything new.....


we'll be fine anyway.... we've got good line-ups in a place thats easy to ram.....


oh and @ caz... people taking down the festival posters? what a bunch of wankers!

My theory is you took it down yourself. You werent aware of your doing it, as you are suffering from a Jekyll & Hyde style personality switch, whereas at one point you are a kind and considerate girly, taking care of kittens and helping grannies across the road and the like, the next after some stressful incident I presume you change into a poster-stealing, beer-swilling monster, leering at passing nervous men and rubbing Reggae Reggae sauce in tramps eyes. It's the only plausible explanation there is.

With regard to Mr T. Naggz's comments about legal places for posters, I believe he is reffering to places such as Slix etc who give permission for putting posters up. This has happened a few times now where other promoter's posters are still there or have even taken the place of our posters. After a few times it's becoming ridiculous. If anyone is removing posters they can only do this without being caught for so long and when they do it will be hijack knowledge instantly.

I've said this on a similar thread before. Don't remove in-date posters! You don't make any friends acting like a cunt.

Allow me to reveal the secret of the missing posters in Slix. I too had this frustrating problem until I actually saw it with my own eyes! The Culprit of this heinous crime?

Greasy walls. Slix's walls are so fucking scummy that blu-tac barely keeps the poster on. Loads of time now I've actually seen them slide off. The staff just then chuck em in the bin, it's not their job to look after them. So when the next promoter comes in and sees a nice A3 sized hole on the wall, he puts his up there. No phantom dastardly promoters are nicking your posters! Just the combination of randomness, laws of gravity and poor hygeine are to blame. My advice is spend a little time warming your ball of blu-tac and then stick the top two corners in the grouting, not the actual tile. Somewhere in there the mystery of science binds better with the sticky and keeps it up longer. Volia!  Two Thumbs

I knew someone would say this. Naggz, you sure this aint the case with our posters? It seems likely, but then it also seems odd that it's happened a few times and other people's posters are still there next to ours..

and its not just slix mate.... 

as as for this guy providing his flyering 'service', imo all hes doing is making money off the back of lazy fuckers and just adding fuel to the fire in these debates.... as someones said he doesn't own the spots he uses and as he's making money from each poster he puts up hes not going to give a shite about the posters he's covering...

anyway, this shouldn't effect our posters because we don't do illegal flyering....  but someones specifically targetting our posters as in several places our posters/flyers are the only ones to 'disappear'

        What's wrong with the world these days? This thread is due to be brought back in September, it's as clockwork as the Hollyoaks September cull, it's how it's always been. It's August people, August. No good will come of this, if there are floods and earthquakes I blame whoever dragged this back up a month early.

        This could go down as one of the best rucks in British history. The city centre being left as some sort of post-apocalyptic wasteland strewn with glitter, torn St George flags and mangled dreadlocks.

        Surely though, if you are doing it illegally, it is all fair game??

        In legal spots and shops I can understand the gripe, but if it's bus stops, walls etc, it is what it is...

        We're all trying to make money, there are no rules or gentlemanly standards when you fly poster illegally. Sorry.

        Thats ok B'Tol, the next time you're putting on an event that you've put your fucking heart and soul into, not to mention the man hours in the pissing rain doing the leg work - just make sure you put a BTOL Production on your posters so I know which ones to rip down - I mean, we're all in it for the money right, so no hard feelings?

        simply put whilst this is an illegal activity there is no reason why a) promoters cant abide by each other and not go over other's in date work and b) try not to cover every known surface in paper. This is a small community and word gets around.

        Listen, I'm not by any stretch saying I would go around and remove peoples posters - I've had it done to me and it's frustrating as hell, but I think it's part of the risks of illegally putting one's posters up...

        To get agro about it is a little trite imho... It happened for my album launch and only in certain areas of the city, but I wouldn't begin to think that person was breaking some unspoken code.

        Honour amongst thieves?? Sorry, but no.

        And again, like I said, it's different in leagl spots - In westworld if folk started overlaying posters on nights that are already there, then they would come down, and any future nights would be taken down too...

        I would also like to add that the recent Byte poster in Westworld was put over a night that hadn't happened as yet - but I just had a rejig and made sure it got a good spot...

        So rip down my posters if you wish...

        Congratulations. That is the most blinkered and self-serving post I've ever read on here. There's plenty of competition, but you've managed it.

        Are you really simple enough to think less posters for other nights instantly means more money for you? Bristol has a reputation for its diverse, vibrant scene - not something it would keep for long if everyone had an attitude like yours.

        And if you're running underground (for want of a better word) clubnights anything less than weekly and expecting to make pots of money, you're even more of an eejit.

        I can guarantee as I do all the shops on Park Street personally and I dont go over others that are in date. Not to say somebody else hasnt moved them around in my abscence and I do go back to all those locations on the regular to check everything is ok and top up flyers. But fair enough you feel it's all fair game.
