Application Procedure
« on: April 29, 2013, 10:08:25 AM »
We appreciate your interest in joining our forum which is devoted to discussions relevant to the creation of contemporary music. Unfortunately, because of a high volume of bogus and spam-related applications, in order to complete your membership request we need to ask you to please tell us something about your experience with music and what your expectations are in joining this group.
Important: you must use a valid email address.

If you do not respond to this request within a week your application will automatically be rejected and you will need to repeat the application process.

Please consider this carefully before joining: This is a "working and teaching forum." By that, we mean that all works posted will be reviewed by other members who will make comments and suggestions on how the works can be improved upon. In the section where we post works "Music by Members," there are two sections: one for junior members and one for senior. If you are a beginning composer or unsure of your skill level, please post in one of the junior sections. You should find that other members will be positive and supportive in their suggestions.

If you consider yourself to be a more established and knowledgeable craftsman, then be warned that anything posted in the "senior" sections will be subjected to criticism based on professional standards. Every work can be improved upon and none of us is beyond criticism. 

This is not a "showcase forum" where works are posted with the aim of garnering admiration. If your purpose in posting is to receive praise then you will be disappointed and should look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you are willing both to learn and to share your knowledge with others, then please respond to this email so that your account can be authorized.

One more thing for you to consider: the forum depends on the active participation of all its members. Inactive accounts are periodically removed. Because there is no charge for membership, attachments are also removed periodically to reduce the cost of maintaining storage space. It is the member's responsibility to ensure that his or her works are backed up elsewhere.
