Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

We have the Concert Calendar, we also have the Zurich Gig Guide thread and the Switzerland Gig Guide thread - is this not enough?

Martin if you want to add Primal Scream into the calendar then go ahead - Mannie Organ decided to post it here and that is entirely her choice but it does not stop you creating an event

After the demise of the Zurich gig guide some people (me included) missed having a general thread to chat about and mention up and coming gigs.

I am sure people living elsewhere can still look at at this thread if they see a new post added to it - especially if they are interested in music and are willing to travel - if someone decided to create a Basel Gig Guide I would follow it, just because i Live in Zurich doesn't mean i wouldn't be interested in gigs in other cities

where's the flogging a dead horse icon for this bleedin topic......

Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

Martin - you groaned Mannie Organ for merely posting a gig that is happening in Zurich in the Zurich Gigs "heads Up" thread, do you really believe that deserves a groan? as far as she is aware she is posting in the right place... really some people.....

Why register to something that seems to cause you so much angst

Anyone only using this "Heads Up" thread or the EF concert guide is going to miss out on plenty of things they might like anyway. It contains a mere fraction of what is going on. Compare it to a comprehensive gig guide eg http://www.last.fm/events , http://www.moonwalk.ch/ etc

Real gig guides exists elsewhere, so I certainly can't be bothered replicating them on EF. Call me selfish if you must, but it only caters for those who like to be.....
The difference between the EF concerts calendar and a general events website is that the concerts mentioned on here are focused towards the expat community.

According to your reasoning if information that was already available on the Internet should not be added to the EF then there wouldn't be much content on the EF.

What I don't understand is why you can't create a Primal Scream Concert thread on the calendar for the 16th August and then have your discussion there: "Are you going?", "No I am going on holiday", "Pity because Primal Scream are good" etc... ?

No I groaned at her because she knows of a good concert that could interest other expats but decided not to add it to the Calendar.

Most of the gigs I go to are with Swiss people. They have remarkably the same taste in music as "expats". EF is intended to be a "Community portal for English-speaking people in Switzerland", not an expat ghetto.

People do often refer to outside web sources. The real value of EF is in the info that isn't so easy to find, and peoples experience and opinions.

I've not been overwhelmed by the volume of your contributions to this calendar (was it zero or nil?). It's a bit rich to be handing out tit-for-tat groans to contributors and using that as an excuse.

That is the whole point of my groan. If you post your comments and information somewhere in the middle of a gigantic Zurich Concerts thread it will not be easy to find.

Exactly the problem, and not exactly unexpected. That is why I wonder why there are mutliple gig threads. It serves no purpose other than to keep those in Zurich happy and the rest of the board uninformed.

see everyone uses things differently, I prefer this way rather than the concerts calendar, the gig is posted and then if no one adds a comment to that event then it gets lost in the pile - whereas I see a new gig added to this and it appears in 'new posts', if i decide i want to go to the event mentioned I put it in my own calendar, I find this solution easier, however i appreciate that you don't, we can't please everyone and I think it will just have to be give and take

If in the future you see a gig mentioned on this or the other thread and you want to create an event in the concerts calendar then go ahead but don't groan at people if they have chosen this method if that's what THEY prefer

And why not post it to the general concerts thread? Do you specificaly not want others to know about it? Or do you feel too many concerts go on in the rest of the country that it would be lost?

Cyrus I didn't post it in here but I actually advised Mannie Organ to post it in here so yes slapped wrist - but it is actually a Zurich concert, not exclusive to Zurichers but it is happening in Zurich - the thread exists and it seemed a suitable place

I think you are being a bit pedantic over this... is it really all that important? a gig is happening in Zurich and it was posted in the Zurich Gigs 'Heads Up' thread

It is pedantic, but it's not just me being pedantic is it? I just feel everyone is better of with a general concert thread, but those from Zurich can't seem to post their concerts to a thread that doesn't have the word "Zurich" in it.

I think 'those' from Zurich can (if they want) Mannie Organ isn't even bloody from Zurich she posted it here because the event is IN Zurich, quite a logical decision do you not think, when confronted with 2 threads, one called Switzerland Gig Guide and the other Zurich Gigs "heads up"

Basically don't blame the messenger, it's the mods decision what to do with the two threads and so far they have been left as they are, so...... a user comes along and posts a zurich gig in the zurich gig thread and she gets groaned and hassled about it
