New web site about stage managers?
« on: Dec 06, 2009, 09:58 pm »
Hi all, I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this type of thing, but none of the other areas seemed appropriate either. I just got an email from a new web site for stage managers asking if it would be ok to link to my site. Beyond the silliness of asking if it's ok to link (that's the purpose of the web after all) to me, I'm just wondering if anyone else had gotten this.

Hi.

Your web page has been submitted to the webmaster@ -redacted-.com

a new web page for resources for stage management.

if you would like for us to link to your web site

http://my-site-url

on our stage managers page, please confirm by responding yes to this e-mail.

any questions, please e-mail webmaster@-redacted-.com

Thanks!

I'd rather not give the site any kind of free publicity. Did anyone get this message? There's no kind of personally identifiable info about the site, and with its numerous typos and lack of content, I'm kind of glad they didn't link to me yet. Mike

Well, looking through my web server logs, they found my site by following a link here at smnetwork. So I'm sure there are others who got this message.

I got it as well. I haven't investigated it at all. I'd be interested to hear who else received it.

I got it.
I sent an inquiry as to who they are and how they got my site address.
I'll keep us posted...

I got an inquiry as well.

I too asked about who it was, but pretty much okay'ed them linking to my sight.

Seems to be harmless enough.

It's legit?  Not a phishing/spam hook?

What did they say about their intentions in starting the site?

Im my response back,  it was mentioned wanting to create a moderated, edited web site about stage management - not for profit, just wanted to include my website for inclusion.

I run two websites for two bonsai groups, and I get requests on an infrequent basis about exchanging links with someone else.  Sometimes they are real bonsai sites that want to exchange links, but there are other times that its weird and strange sites asking for the exchange.  I always investigate, since I'm very picky about who I'll list as a link.
