Now it's even easier to make contact...

NME.COM launched new bulletin boards yesterday (November 28)

with a bunch of new features.

The boards now load significantly more quickly, and new features allow you to:

Register your personal identity, to avoid impersonation

Send private messages to other users

Add a user profile, including a picture

Receive e-mail notification if you wish when other users reply to

your posts

Save favourite boards and customise their appearance

In addition, messages from members of the NME and

NME.COM teams will be flagged by an ‘NME’ logo.

Acts with their own boards are Ash, Blur, Ian Brown, Charlatans, MOP, Oasis, Radiohead, Slipknot, Starsailor, Strokes, Travis

and White Stripes.
