Angry The Website. MySpace etc.

It's been mentioned in another thread but the website needs updating as does the MySpace page.

The website is the first point of call for new and old fans alike and the Guestbook has been spammed beyond recognition, Udo does a great job on here but the same care and attention needs to be given to the website and myspace page.

SOMEBODY SORT IT OUT !

Agreed!!! I've applied for at least 3 times to be a "Saxon Friend" on MySpace and never been answered.....or maybe they've declined me ?!

Regarding the website, I am wondering re: all the spam in the guestbook, maybe Udo does not have the power to delete those, he is always so on top of it. And I would imagine that they will probably update it closer to the new album release...I hope.

Had exactly the same happen to me.

Wasn't and would never have a moan at Udo. Udo and Kerstin are doing a great job.

I just think with the profile and popularity of the band on the up someone needs to take these things in hand and sort them out.

I'm afraid mate, this will not change! Just flogging a dead horse

New young fan hears a Saxon classic for the first time! Decides to check out the band and find out what new material on offer. First stop 'Official Web Site'!

He/She now eagerly awaits to down load the new single 'I've Got To Rock (To Stay Alive) which is out next month Oct 19th!!!

We rest our case again!!

Well said mate. Unfortunately I think Saxonized is right, we have been here too many times for anything to change now.
