Basically this is a community for those in the UK wishing to trade/swap/buy CDs/vinyl/tapes, created because the majority of music trading communities on here are US-based & postage costs a fortune. It's fairly simple, nothing too complex - feel free to:
Request music you want/need/can't live without/whatever. Someone might have it and be willing to part with it, be it through trade or for a small fee.
List your own music that you're willing to part with, or offer to make compilation tapes/CDs for people.
Ask opinions on music you should listen to. Maybe you've heard a band you really like and want to hear others like it? Just ask.
Tell people about your band, or your favourite local band, especially if you've got something recorded you want to get out there.
Don't bitch about other people's music tastes. If you don't like what they like, fair enough, just leave it alone.
If you're posting more than one picture, put it under an lj-cut. If you don't know how to lj-cut, ask.
If someone messes you around, leave us a post & let people know - or likewise if someone's great in sending stuff, leave a post & thank them. It's only fair.
It's not set in stone, but a simple introduction with your name & music tastes & whatever else you care to share is just basic politeness.
