As far as this business about the site that steals your songs "legally"  That's just terrifying!!!  Laws are screwy these days imo.  And we were trying to get noobs to post in here?  There's always luring them with chocolate.... Ooooor..... THREATENING.  

 

We can get JustSoulin to follow the noobs around with a baseball bat that has the name "Bill" written on it, pound it into his palm and say "So... haven't seen you posting much in the chat thread today...  It doesn't really matter to me, but Bill over here isn't too happy about it..."  *Pound* *Pound*  *Pound*

As long as we've added this fine feature, I'm gonna use it to voice a pet peeve. Members....please, please, please don't do this http://forums.songstuff.com/blog/224/entry-1474-my-first-step-into-music-production/

I'm sure this gentleman had good intentions originally. He joined a week ago, made 2 quick posts for essentially the same reason....to ask a question, then didn't even return to find out if anyone gave him an answer. Problem is....I did!

He posted this blog, which wasn't actually a blog at all, in a desperate attempt to get his question answered. That was on March 1st. He returned briefly, early morning on the 2nd, and hasn't been back since. The thing is, I took the time to read his question and respond to it in the afternoon of the 2nd. Since then, I've even posted a reply asking him to let me know he's aware of the response.

Still nothing!

Tomorrow's the 8th.

Bottom line....none of the Songstuff staff members are looking to have their butts kissed for trying to help. But we're also not interested in wasting our time. Nothing screams self-serving SOB like someone who won't even take the time to acknowledge the efforts of another to assist them.

Please, please, please don't do this! Not here....not anywhere....ever!

Tom

Being fair, this is not an exclusive in treating the staff. It happens all the time on the critique boards, for example. It is annoying, especially if you put in a lot of effort to help and they don't bother to reply

:offtopic:   Hey, John.  Just chiming in to say that, while a part of me misses seeing the attractive gal who used to greet me here, I'm liking the new Songstuff first page.  It's very slick and pro-looking.  Kudos!

That's a great idea.  Have you thought about doing a monthly forum wide song writing contest?  You could have everyone compete to be featured as the "artist of the month"  or something.  Just an idea.

We had a monthly song contest reasonably recently, but uptake wasn't high and it took quite a lot of effort to run.

It is possible we will reintroduce it at some point, especially if we get an increase in finished works being posted. For the foreseeable however I think we will continue with the videos being selected by staff from recent member posts. With so many ongoing changes and improvements going on, staff are needed in other areas.

On that note, for anyone else reading this, we are short staffed. We are looking for volunteers in just about every area imaginable from moderation, to graphics, to site coding, server admin, article writing, marketing and promotion, admin, design... The list goes on. If you have a skill and would be interested in helping, drop me a PM so we can discuss it. :)

I think the reason this particular robot is sad is left out of the image. I believe if the picture showed the lower half it would become clear... Slots for money.

 

Yep, she's a hooker.

 

That also explains the bags under her eyes. :)

is there a copyright law to stop artists using the same name I know there are two Brian Cox ,  but what if I wanted to call my band the beatles?

if there is a copyright issue how did Kurt Cobain manage to call his band Nirvana when there is a band called nirvana already ?  see rainbow chaser (song ) song from sixties by nirvana , just asking

Hi there isn't a copyright law, but they can be registered trademarks and or registered business names. Try starting a burger business called McDonalds

In using the name "Nirvana" for the band, Cobain apparently didn't "get away with it."

I started but then was distracted and turned away when I saw that rock formation on the upper left-hand side that oddly resembles the subliminal "naked guy" that people see on a pack of Camel smokes.
