I was just wondering what attracts players to bands these days. You see so many bands advertising for players and some bands seem to be advertising for long periods for the same positions whereas other bands are able to fill them quickly. Why is this? If you were or are looking for a band to join, what would make the decision for you to join a particular band. I know this is a fairly open question and there could be lots of reasons. However, I have polled some possible reasons but please post anything else that may have influenced you. I think it may be useful for bands to know what people are looking for.
