    I have reluctantly decided to close this group until Last HQ get the messaging problem fixed. I will no longer be accepting new members. the games will remain open for existing members should you want to carry on with them. I want to thank all of the regulars and other members for making the group work and for making it a fun thing to be involved with. I will let you all know either when the group re-opens or if I start a new group on similar terms.

    Unfortunately the messaging service is still broken. I will check in again soon to see if it has been fixed yet.

    The group messaging service is still broken and last.fm HQ don't seem to be in a particular hurry to fix it! I don't have the time to send 250+ individual messages to all the members so until the messaging service is fixed the voting is suspended.

    Hello again. Because of the continuing problems with the group messaging service I will reluctantly have to suspend the weekly voting for the time being. I have been posting messages in each of your shoutboxes but with over 200 members it just takes too long to realistically continue doing it. Rest assured though that the group will be back up and running once the messaging problem has been fixed. The other discussions will continue to be active so please do contiune to play along in the games. Thanks for your patience guiys. Martin :-)

    Hi guys. This is just a quick little plug for another group that a friend of mine runs on here called The Last FM Song Contest. Come along and check it out. Some of the members of our group have joined the Song Contest and I think they can agree that it is a fun group to be a part of. The members submit songs for the contest then we all comment and vote on each other's songs and a winner is declared. We're currently on contest 15. It really is good fun with a good bunch of people and you may well discover some great new artists to add to your library. :-)
