    Cheers for this thread Synchro; I actually run the website so hope it helps folk.

    I created it for a variety of reasons but one reason I did it was to also not be dependent on bookface so much when I realised they filter a lot of stuff out so I missed allsorts that was going on near me..at least on the website it shows you what's on bookface.. any ho hope it helps

    Great site Wonty. Any way to find excuses for a day or weekend out is cool. Avoiding bookface is cooler.:cool:;)
    Yes I do use facebook for Dubs By The River... only because the only ones who'd turn up without it would be Kombi Club members... hmmm there's an idea:rolleyes:;)

    Thank you @wombatventures for your kind words, I'm learning as I go really, tried and failed a few times now but seemed to have hit a rhythm where I can keep current with events and post daily now - so happy days :)

    I agree with you that it's a necessary evil turning to Facebook to promote events which is a bit sad really as I've found loads of interesting clubs and meetups that are outside of the metro locations which I try and share with folk as they may fancy something different :)

    I'm more than happy also to add pages to the website for organisers of dub events if they want some type of web presence. I'm sure I could do something. I will be placing something like that up for the show I help to run in the coming weeks.

    David, bless you mate, thank you. Honestly if you've known the hiccups I've had which meant starting all over again trying to get something that actually works,working, you soon realise why I'm so happy to read posts like yours and everyone elses. It's turned into a nice little hobby in a way now and the folk I'm meeting are truly lovely people that are all in it for the dub community, happy days!

    Awesome stuff Scot. :)

    I too, don’t do “wastebook”, or any other social media, so your work is a great source, for upcoming events.

    Hope to catch up with you at one of them, sometime in the future. ;)

    Would love to catch up @Grantus for sure!

    Honestly knowing that the site is helping is pure gold to be honest, just true sincere thanks for letting us know. Like I say I've tried all sorts of things in the past to showing events such as custom maps state specific pages but the format I have now does seem to work a lot better so its good to get to know first hand it works for all. Thank you.

    I've been playing with a few ideas in the background of the site to see if it I can post event updates in a simple feed say if something is cancelled at the last minute or something but I want it done so its nice and simple and not a huge burden for people to see or for me to drop onto the site.

    If you or anyone has any ideas just knock them on, I'll see if I can sort it out - not a worry at all.

    Hope your day is going well

    Cheers @Luckyphil again cheers for the kind words mate. Just doing a little update now on the site that may help to show when event details are updated or they have more news to share, not sure if it will work, but happy to give it a punt! The blog is called 'The OZ Journal' thought it was better than just blog.. :-D just writing my first post now, no idea how this is going to play out, but doubt it will break the internet! :-D

    --- update
    the blog is now live ... https://ozvwshows.com/the-oz-journal/

    I'll use it to post up updates to events and show information, such as MacValla have added online applications, so seems fitting to use this feature to share this type of information. It will also serve well if events cancel at the last minute. Hopefully it will provide some help at some point to someone

    Seriously this idea has just come from this thread, so a big thanks for giving me the idea all! Most appreciated.

    Scot
