Why was this not mentioned here?

Postby icy » Wed Aug 29, 2012 10:50 am

Why wasn't this opportunity mentioned on the board itself? I didn't check the Queenonline page itself, because it hasn't been working for me for days, and I'm not the only one, so maybe even more reason to have had it mentioned on the boards one would think.

Maybe because you (and others) mentioned it before we knew about it ourselves?

It was mentioned on the band's Facebook page not too long before I started this thread.
Once upon a time the mods/admins would have mentioned it here before anywhere else, with a possible sticky thread. I'm not having a go just puzzled why it wasn't mentioned in time or during it by mods/admins.
I'm glad thanks to soxtalon's thread more people from here had the chance to ask and have questions answered.

I don't look at Queen's Facebook page so I didn't know about it. Maybe I should start.

I rarely do it myself tbh because of the spam/scam and crap that some people post there. The only reason I did it this time was because I couldn't get to the main page here.

I don't have a Facebook account and never go on it period except to read the company one from work occasionally.

I have never read the Queen Facebook page in my life. Historically, we posted anything we were told to post, this hasn't happened for quite some time and Nick basically posts anything he feels relevant to here.

All the more reason it should have been bought up here then...not everyone has a facebook acct, those who do may not want to go through the spam/scam/crap that is on just about every popular page on Facebook.
(As someone who is a fan of everything from Queen to beading, I know it all too well.)
Maybe it's just me, but I felt this Q/A opportunity was important to the fans here who may have wanted the chance to ask questions and to have them answered bu someone who works with/for the band. It's why I bought it up here the first place...well that and to get answers as to why it wasn't mentioned.
Again, not having a go, but if I notice something that I feel is important in the future, I will bring it up, if not me, I hope another poster will.

Which is fair enough.

The way the question was asked though, was like "Why didn't WE announce it?", and the answer to that was that WE didn't know about it to be able to announce it because WE don't DO facebook.
