Simple, really. I wanted to have a place to hang out, discuss rock music and its variations, share videos, photos of shows attended, rate and review albums / venues, etc. Hopefully things can progress to the point of ticket exchanging, possible meet-ups with other fans, promotion for upcoming bands, so on and so forth. I have decided that users who register and cannot upload an avatar, will be deleted after a week. Zero posters will be deleted after 2 weeks.

We wanted a fairly simple look, but one that would also give us an identity. We felt going with @Russ and @Qwk86gn from PixelExit with the Core Design was best for us. It's flexible and has a very clean look. All modifications will be done by us, although to contribute to xF members, we posted a $20 PayPal Design our Text Editor Contest no takers yet... I can see us getting one more style to compliment the lighter look, and that has yet to be decided upon.
We have chosen to be hosted by @Mike Edge with xF Host and he has taken great care of us for the last couple of months. Enough cannot be said about the effort he has went through along with the help from other (@Teapot ) members of his staff.
Appreciate you taking a look (if you did), would love to hear the feedback you have. If you are a fan of this genre of music, feel free to register and join in on the discussions. I do have a lot of ideas for this site, but I also enjoy hearing what others have to say, as well as the visions they have for it.
