I found DSI after being a myspace customer for many years. I can honestly say I've never been a mamber of a more lively happy absolutely brilliant site.

SIGN UP NOW! What have you got to lose?!

Cant honestly say I have never found any site better than DSI, heaps of like minded friendly people in one place, have made some of my best friends since joining up!

I've been on DSI since the early days and it's always been fun, interesting and a great thing to be a part of. It makes going clubbing an entirely different experience to my pre-DSI days as now I know half the people who are out!! The boys who run it are (or at least were) clubbers so they have our best interests at heart. There's a definite policy of live and let live, so the comment on here about it being their way or the high-way just isn't true...it's probably a promoter who spams other promoters groups!! :o)

Thai-wrong-horse

All im gonna say is forget your Myspaces and Bebos, DSI is the dog danglies innit....infact il rephrase that, DSI is my life !!!

SIGN UP NOW BIATCHS !!

Johnny-See

Don't be fooled by the 'dontstayin' name, once you sign up you will spend all your time staying in and staring at the yellow screen!

DSI has been a part of my life since February 2005 and I dont know what i'd do with out it! I have met my bestest friends through that site and my life has changed for the better! I have tried many other different clubbing sites and message boards and DSI is way ahead of any thing of its sort. I am not particularly great with computers and I find using DSI easy peasy! DSI FOR LIFE! ;) x

DSI is not just a website, it's a way of life

"the owners are obnoxious and its there way or the high way"

LMAO. Yes, if you're a racist or a spammer you'll get banned.

If you're not then you'll get on fine there...

DSI is a great site and I now get recognised nearly everywhere I go - even while on holiday outside of the UK recently!

Wicked site that since I joined in Jan or Feb 2004 has not stopped growing and evolving.

Go out, have a good time and report back to base, upload photos if you wish, wicked stuff!

Sir Rich

I'd like to invite people to join my new grassroots social networking site, www.clubyeah.com It's free to join & use.

What is clubyeah.com?
www.clubyeah.com is a social networking website where members get MULTIPLE, free, personal, customizable spaces (web pages) which they use to network, share, make friends, and express interests & passions.

Five reasons why clubyeah.com is ‘different’ from other social networking sites

Reason #1 Members get MORE SPACE! With other social networking websites, you get only one space per account & login. At clubyeah.com members get up to 16 personal spaces with one convenient account & login AND they can add or delete spaces anytime.

Reason #2 Members get 16 fully interactive interest-based communities
clubyeah.com is like 16 websites in one with 16 communities, each dedicated to a single interest. Members can have personal spaces in any combination of the following communities: Sports, Models, Tattoos, Musicians, Cars, Geeks, Travel, Artists, Music Fans, Party, Motorcycles, Pets, Dating, Health & Fitness, and Collecting.

Reason #3 Members get MORE networking options
Members are able to add spaces that suit their interests. They can have one space, two spaces, three spaces, or a whole portfolio of spaces.

Space Scenarios 1) A musician who wants to promote original music (musicians are able to upload 4 mp3's to their media player) can join with a musicians-space, AND can add different spaces later, such as a tattoos-space or a party-space. 2) A member who has multiple interests can have MULTIPLE SPACES to match those interests. For example, their portfolio of spaces might include a pet-space, a car-space, a dating-space, and a geek-space. 3) A member can have ALL 16 spaces with a space in each community. That would give them a total of 720 photo uploads and 16 separate interest-based blogs.

Reason #4 Members don’t need to cram all their interests into one space
For people with multiple interests, a portfolio of spaces allows them to show different facets of their life & personality by dedicating spaces to specific interests. With other social networking sites, you’d have to cram all of those interests into one space.

Reason #5 Members get a more mature social
networking environment clubyeah.com encourages a social networking experience for adults. While most social networking sites allow children to become members (by setting their minimum age for membership as low as 13 or 14), clubyeah.com discourages this by setting the minimum age for membership at 18.

DSI promotes a way of life. the whole ethos is friendly and sociable. It helps you find likeminded people and plan your weekends. the site lets you know what is going on in Britain and all over the world. You just decide where you wnt to go and what you want to do! If you enjoy it you can share your thoughts with your friends and perhaps encourage them to try it too!

UK buff

UK buff is a new social networking site dedicated towards the uk much like myspace it operates much the same, also has the ability to import all your important profile and layout bits from myspace. Use existing layouts and codes to create cool lookin profiles.The differance? its not to big yet to become impersonal for newbies we try and help as much as we can on uk buff if requested. Also uk buff will automatically make younger members as private profiles. Allthough uk buff has been targeted towards the uk it seems in the first week of lauch it seems to be attracting other countries also. As mentionioned it operates very similar to myspace so uk buff also has video uploads and downloads,Bands and artists can sign up and promote them selves, also groups and forum features plus a free email address.
Give a go at www.ukbuff.com

DSI... it is currently the best clubbing website in the UK if not the world. Full of like minded people and I love it. I have beena member since 2005 and i use it EVERY day! it's more than a forum for people to chat.. it's an addiction. I have met so many fantastic people thru DSI, and conversely, met a load of people when out and then met them on DSI.. it works both ways - improves your social circle no ends! Massive shout to the Hard South family! xx

DSI is the best clubbing site around for both clubbers and promoters. I have made some wicked friends since joining about 18 months ago and its good when your out and you get recognised from being on there. Must say though its very addictive
