----

Q: Why are XXXXX and YYYYYY on your site? They're not real punk!
A : Take your 'real punk' ass over to another site that plays their videos then.

----

Q : I REALLY NEEEED a copy of
. Me pay you dolla and love you longtime.
A : We don't sell vids AT ALL, or distribute them any further. What you see here is what you get (although there MIGHT be a few more songs from each show available from file servers on our IRC channel, #punkrockvids on EFNET)

----

Q : Why don't you put more vids on the site?
A : All this hosting so that you can download stuff for free costs us money, which believe it or not, we pay out of our own pockets. We're looking at some kind of donation scheme where you donate a buck or two through Paypal, then we can buy more bandwidth and give you more of what you want. Until then, keep checking the site and the channel.

----

Q : I'm a big cool record label type and you're violating our copyright.
A : Don't want the FREE publicity for your bands? Kindly send an email to skiso@punkrockvids.com and the offending material will be removed immediately. Please be sure to send it from your business email address, along with the contact number and extension of your office and a postal address so we can verify that it's not just some kid messing about.

----

Q : No shit, I actually AM a cool record label type, and I'd like to pay you money to put banners/vids on your site.
A : We don't want money, thanks for the offer though, if you email skiso@punkrockvids.com we can probably sort something out (perhaps you can get our filmers passes for your bands' shows or something)

----

Q : I'm a cool label/band guy, and I'd like you guys to come and film some of our shows and put em up on your site
A : Nice one! Email skiso@punkrockvids.com with details, PRV has guys who film all over the place. See the 'Members' page and go down to 'Rippers' to see where we hail from, or if you like the work of a certain filmer and want them to cover it, let Skiso know!

----

Q : I'm in a small band, please host our video.
A : Again, contact skiso@punkrockvids.com, we're always lookin to help out lesser known bands from anywhere. It must be a real professionally edited promo video for one of your songs though, not a live one-camera thing.

----

Q : What happens to the full videos? Is there any way at all I can get them? It was my birthday at the show and had sex with the lead singer. Now I'm pregnant and I need a copy of the tape to prove that the baby is his.
A : That's what DNA tests are for. No, you can't get ANYTHING from us anyhow, not under any circumstance. If we distributed stuff a.) this site wouldn't exist anymore as bands/labels would almost certainly shut us down instantly and b.) the tapes would almost certainly end up on eBay, and that's something we're strongly against.
