Posting requirements:
All Ads posted must be music industry related and be in the appropriate category for the post.  Free Ads are free for 6 months.  Although it is not a requirement, we do ask that you tell 2 friends of your concession to help promote traffic to this site, and ultimately to help you get a reply to your post.  Banner Ads are an exception to the music industry rule but are subject to our discretion.  We reserve the right to not accept any banner ad without cause.

Why was my post deleted?:
We normally do not delete posts, but we reserve the right to delete any post at our discretion without cause.  If your post was deleted, it was usually due to the fact that it was not music-related or it was posted to an incorrect category.  Other causes for deletion of Ads would be inappropriate language or photos, or suspected spamming, harassment of other ad posters; or if we suspect you are dishonest in your intentions.

Reporting inappropriate posts:
If you find an offensive, inappropriate, or dishonest post, please report it to Ads  In the title of you message please use "Reporting inappropriate posts"; also an explanation and a translation.  We will look into the allegations and delete the Ad if we find it to be accurate, at our discretion,  Please provide the Ad ID number.

It would be nice to run a service to people with some hope of recapturing the cost without having our friends who post harassed.  Maybe we will fall under the good grace of all, even those with different views than ours, and we won’t have to delete or try to ban anyone.  We like to look for the good in others.  It is easy to find the bad.  It is at our discretion to prevent ads or admission to those who do not wish to be friendly.

Frankly, we never understood the mindset of spam.  After all, if you crap on someone's dinner plate, do you think that there is a high probability they will pay for it or eat it?  That being said, there are those who find entertainment in the sport of nonconformity and the hope that brain-washing will prevail, so we have instituted anti-spam measures and will continue to try to reduce it for our friends.  It is at our discretion to prevent Ads or admission to those who do not wish to be friendly and spam us.

Subpoenas, Etc:
We want to work within the limits of the law even if we don't always agree with it.  If we are forced by law to turn over our records and cannot find any other legal way to avoid this thing, we will have no choice but to comply. That being said, outside of that situation, we have no intention to hand over our records to anyone outside of a buy-out.  And we are not looking to sell.

Event Calendar:
Our event calendar is free to all.  We feel it is very comprehensive with the different Country, State and City listings.  With the addition of the World International, USA National, Countries National and State-wide (Ex. Virginia "State") posting locations, we provide one of the most comprehensive and easily posted event calendars on the Net.  Post can be made in any language and searched by language, or area or both.

If your music organization does not have a web site, our calendar can provide your members with up-to-date information.  If you have national or world engagements, this is an excellent way to post them for free.  Events will automatically terminate the day after the event date.  At World Music List we occasionally post events for artists we would like to promote at our discretion.

If you feel you have benefited financially from your free advertisements with World Music List and would like to contribute a small portion of your earnings to help us continue our free sponsorship of Ads for music professionals and music instrument sales, please check our "Contribution" page and select an option for contributing.  We greatly appreciate you help.  It is our desire to help others like you.  Or you can send a check to the address in our "About Us" section.

World Music List ?:
Consider the conditions.  To advertise a music instrument in a newspaper, it is common to be charged $20.00 a day or more.  In a week or two, this could claim all of the profit in the sale.  As a music professional, these kinds of fees make it prohibitive to do much advertising.  Event posting is either scattered or expensive.  After seeing the movie "A Beautiful Mind" about a man who developed a math formula proving that if many small and large entities such as nations worked together all would benefit.  (Perhaps this inspired the Euro in Europe.)  He won a Nobel prize for math.  We were inspired to develop World Music List in an effort to unite all of the world’s music professionals in a common directory and make it possible for greater trafficking of music instruments for everyone, individual, business and wholesaler, to everyone's benefit.

Our Vision:

If you look for the good in people you will usually find it and if you look for the bad in people you will usually find it, so you need to look for the good.  It is easy to find the bad.  "Lillian Organ Campise"

There is only one good thing (emotion) to use your talents for the good of those around you and yourself. "Louis Gesensway", Philadelphia Composer and 45 year violinist for the Philadelphia Orchestra.

We believe the secret of turning your life around when going through bad times is to get your focus off of yourself and start doing some things (as small as they may be) to help others. When you do this, your situation will start to improve, if not only in your own mind.  

Life is 10 percent about what happens to you and 90 percent about how you react to it. "Charles Swindoll"

World Music List is the child of several other business ventures.  They were promising and provided enough to live day to day, but in a rising climate of accessing fees on those who have little or no say in how much the assessors can extract from one’s budget without any concern for the individual’s ability to pay, we started to squirm under the pressure.  In the field we encountered many requests to sell instruments and for professional services other than those we provided.  We wanted to do something that would benefit many others.  We believe that World Music List is about providing opportunities for many others to benefit.  We believe that is has an 80 percent or greater potential for the benefit of others, yet we hope there is some benefit at some point for us.  We hope, first of all, that if we grow to the point that our traffic requires a dedicated server or a T-1 Internet connection, that it will provide this income.  Second, possibly we will get back our personal financial investment. Third, we dream, we believe everyone should have dreams.  Without them life stops.  We believe in the concept of World Music List and its potential to help many people and perhaps help some of them to continue their personal dreams.
