Hello All

We have some new changes to report. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get to all the fun stuff, and focused on the forum instead.

The forum is now open to members only. The public can view but you have to be a member to post. For some of you I was able to associate your historic posts with your membership, so your post count is updated. For those that I didn't get to, please contact me via the contact form.. let me know your member login and what you used as 'Author' in the past, and I'll associate the two.

If you didn't have a membership before, just sign up, then contact me with the above information.

New members will be 'sandboxed' for a 30 days. Meaning that you have to wait for approval before posts are shown to the public. Again, if you've been a frequent poster in the past, just contact me and I'll lift that restriction for your account. There will be a few growing pains while we all get accustomed to the new changes... but we'll work through it.

We also have a new forum rules (or should I say, we have official forum rules now).

We also have moderators (besides me) to help round the duties out as well. I want to emphasize that I don't want a 'G rated' board or a board where everyone is afraid to say anything for the threat of being banned. This will hopefully maintain the original spirit, but allow for some sort of control for people that abuse the forum or its readers. To be banned, you have to be clearly violating the rules. If any of you find a abusive post, please report it.

Some fun stuff to report though. I've added member profile. Now you can add your musical interests, bio and gear. You can also associate them to your Bean entries (I understand that some people want to keep that private.. so you can select what Beans you want to associate for the public.). You'll see this after logging in.

I also reformatted the Bean database a bit (adding images within the entry directly). I'll be making a phase II change where users can upload images directly instead of linking. Also, if people can help me identify broken images, that would be great. I have a link where users can click let me know of broken images so I can start to clean that up.

As with any updates, I'm expecting some errors or bugs, so please bear with me. If you can let me know about the error, what you were doing, and what you expected to happen.. that would be incredibly useful for debugging.

Thanks for everyone's patience and support!
