  1. Nope, not related to this forum.
  2. Account deleted as requested.
  3. Thanks, I've now updated the e-mail address on the account as requested.
  4. That account is using an AOL e-mail address. If you can drop me a message using the contact form (https://www.aberdeen-music.com/contact/) and let me know what e-mail address you would like it changed to then I can do that for you, and you can then reset your password.
  5. Account deleted as requested.
  6. Have just updated the forums so I'd be interested to hear if this is still an issue.
  7. As posted by @Flash@TMB "Grassroots live music venues are an important aspect of our city's culture. We need to convince the council and its relevant departments to adopt the Agent of Change Principle for Live Music Venues, in order to afford these places protection from the noise complaints that frequently threaten their existence. The UK as a whole has lost some 40% of it's grassroots music venues in the past decade alone. Where someone builds a brand new venue, from scratch, or suddenly starts holding gigs, then any noise complaints are entirely foreseeable, and it should be the operators responsibility to soundproof their premises. Where any new residential accommodation is built in the vicinity of an existing venue, then the developer should be forced to install sufficient soundproofing, and to remedy this should it ever prove insufficient. Existing buildings, which have showcased live music for many years, should be designated as music venues, and afforded a degree of protection. If a significant noise issue arises, then provided the operator can demonstrate that they have taken every reasonable step to remedy and limit the nuisance, the venue should be given cultural dispensation, and the affected resident(s) perhaps offered a grant to add additional soundproofing to their propertie(s). Where the 30dBA threshold could not ultimately be achieved then a pragmatic solution must be found to keep the venue open. While there is a movement to adopt the Agent of Change Principle at both Scottish and UK level, this may come too late (if ever) for some of the city's venues. Furthermore Agent of Change is something that the city council can choose to implement at a local level."

  8. You might have nailed it on the head there. As far as I'm aware the code hasn't changed (and I can still see posts with embedded images) but these "blank" posts people are reporting - did they all just simply contain embedded image(s)? i.e. there was no text accompanying the image? Unfortunately, without rolling the whole upgrade back, there probably isn't much I can do to fix this.
  9. In which threads do you think posts have been deleted?
  10. All, A very overdue upgrade has now been made to the web site. Some elements are still a work in progress (e.g. the site still needs a new logo) and no doubt a number of configuration changes and bugs need addressed, but for the most part everything should be working. The forum software is still the same product as before but as you can see this latest version of the software changes the look and feel quite considerably and adds a whole load of new features. If anyone has any problems or questions then please reply here and I'll do my best to address them. Thanks for your patience!
  11. I'm afraid so. I'm not aware of any online payment systems that allow those under 18 to send payments, but if you know of one then please let me know and I'll see what I can do.
  12. Can you please tell me what e-mail address you used for your PayPal subscription and I'll check this for you.
  13. Read it...but your username is already Showbiz?
  14. Please PM me the name of the account that has been upgraded. The account that was upgraded had the same e-mail address as the PayPal account that was used hence why it was upgraded. I'll then correct the problem.
  15. "After almost 10 amazing years at 1 Union St, it is with deep sadness and regret we must announce that Snafu & The Athenaeum look like they will be closing their doors for the final time. Despite our best efforts, the two businesses can no longer sustain themselves in the current economic climate. Things are not to be." Full announcement on their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/clubsnafu.aberdeen?hc_location=timeline
  16. Just re-sent your validation e-mail.
  17. Needless to say, everyone has to vote for aberdeen-music or they'll be banned.
  18. Just a friendly reminder that registering multiple user accounts in order to make multiple votes is against the rules of the site. All user registrations are manually validated (which can take up to 24 hours I'm afraid) and I have and will continue to delete user accounts registered for this purpose. Please lets keep this vote fair, thank you.
