the point SB-er Buoy is making is, these threads are useless because 90% of the people who frequent these forums are musicians, most of whom are always looking to get their music into games, movies and such. if you want the same thing you'll have to put more effort into it than just making a thread and hoping people will find you. that's like "set it and forget it", and it's not the mentality of a true musician.

people post in these forums all the times requesting musicians, and i'd hope they look for people with the initiative to approach THEM.
Not to mention, advertising your services is still self-advertising, even if you're not linking to your own music. And that's against the forum rules.
What would be a far better use of your time (and ours) would be uploading some examples of your work to the Audio Portal, posting them in the Advertising thread, and being ACTIVE on the forums.
Review other people's work (it makes them much more likely to review yours in return, which helps BOTH of you improve), keep an eye out for threads where people ask for a musician, and, most importantly, network: make friends and contacts who make flash games and films, because if they like your music, they might directly ask you if you want to do some work for them.
