Just some feedback. Very nice site, not sure if it's a fan-driven or commercial venture, but either way, some hard work has clearly gone into putting it together. The forum is a little(!) dead, but I guess that's to be expected to a degree, as the Beatles aren't a hotly-debated bit of current internet events, and no doubt there are established hangouts for the hardcore and diehards since the usenet days.
Anyway, good job. I'm sure traffic will pick up around and after the 9th of September when the discs are re-released along with the game.
Hi Azazel. Thanks for the feedback.
The site's pretty much a fan-driven labour of love. I'm a Beatle-obsessive (I guess that's pretty obvious), but a lot of time has been spent researching and writing the articles. The ads bring in a trickle of money, but not nearly enough for me to give up the day job!
As for the forum – yes, it's pretty dead at the moment, but the site's only existed since around March 2008, so it's inevitable that the more-established forums out there will be busier. I hope that over time more people swing by and contribute, but it's always hard to gauge. All forums take time to gather momentum though.
As for the future, I'm planning more features, photos, and articles on each of the albums (most of those pages just have links to the song articles at the moment). It's a bit frustrating not being able to do it full time, as there's so much to do, but I'll get there in the end.
All the best,

It's funny seeing these really old threads again. It's interesting to note that just a year ago this forum was largely dead, and now traffic to it is greater than the traffic to the front page of the site. Well done everyone!
I must confess I kind of feel ashamed for having almost the number of posts you have Joe. But this is my escape of reality. The real life sucks big time. So I should really than you Joe.

Over 1500 members now, and new posts pretty much everyday… this forum sure has grown.
Joe, you have worked so hard on making this site what it is. Apples for you:

Thanks! I don't really do much work on it anymore, as I'm focusing on writing the book. I'm glad that the site almost runs itself, and thanks to all for contributing so much. I drop by this forum now and then, and approve comments on the articles every day. I still need to finish a lot of stuff, eg solo releases for Paul, George and Ringo, plus post-1970 history dates, but I'll wait till I've finished the book (which is shaping up really nicely – I think it's the best thing I've ever written, but it's still too early to share here).
