    Default Advertising ideas

    I thought a thread of advertising ideas for PuG would be good as I've come up with a great one and thought I'd start off.

    I am thinking that some free advertising on the BBC would do this site the world of good!

    There are a lot of knowledgeable people (myself excluded) that are regulars on this site and forum so I was thinking that a Pubs Galore team should apply to be contestants on Eggheads. You may laugh, but it’s a popular programme and the producers are always looking for people with interesting links so it would be a gimme to get on the show. I’m also sure that someone on here must know Chris!

    Lateral thinking and a good idea. I did briefly wonder about the show's audience demographic, in relation to PG's, but national tv would be a big hit either way.

    Now, if you can also get a line in a rival show that goes out at 18:00... d'oh!

    Now there's a thought. I wonder if Groening would consider inserting a table in Moe's with some of us complaining about the Duff ("can't be doing with this bottom-fermented Septic stuff"). If Tony Bliar can get on the show, why shouldn't we? Trouble is we wouldn't be able to review Moe's on this site as it doesn't have a UK postcode.

    You may jest, but there is a blogger who has reviewed the bars in his computer games!

    Thinking laterally again, as Moe's is technically in your living room, couldn't you use your postcode?

    Now here's a whole world of debate - does that mean that the postcode is that of the first reviewer, or do we have 100 Moe'ses? And what about those of us who travel a lot? Would I have to create a new Moe's for each hotel I use? In no time at all there'd be more of these than JDWs.

    Strongers, thank you so much for starting this thread.

    I am having one of those weeks where I just hate the main PuG site, highlight so far being on Tuesday where a Lawyer kindly called me an 'absurd person', which is a little original, I think Chris from BITE is the only other person to have resorted to name calling so far. Got 2 feedbacks today that promise to escalate as well (although I shouldn't prejudge them).

    So this is a timely reminder of why I love working on the site really.

    What did you get called by Chris? I love gossip.
