!i want videos) to access the server and request dcc sends.
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
A : Again, contact email@example.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
