New Forum homepage layout

 Posted at 03:08 on Tuesday, March 14, 2006

We've changed the layout on the forum homepage, doing away with the 'recent posts' list and instead offering easy links to the sub-categories in the forum.

The forum as a whole seems to be developing into a number of quite distinct sub-forums with each sticking by and large to their own section, so it seemed to make sense to cut out the scroll down to find your own forum and just present a list of categories on the home page.

Any thoughts and suggestions welcomed.

New Journals

 Posted at 10:21 on Friday, March 10, 2006

We've added a new feature to the site today: 'Journals'.

Journals can be found on the navigation tabs for each piece on 8notes and allow you to post their thoughts, comments, memories etc in relation to that piece.

Here's my modest first effort:

New Tenor Sax section on 8notes

 Posted at 03:42 on Tuesday, February 28, 2006

We've had some requests for Tenor sax versions of some of the pieces on 8notes, so we thought it was high time we kicked off the tenor saxophone section

Any requests for the new section feel free to add below.

Add Melodies to your post

 Posted at 10:20 on Friday, February 24, 2006

In an exciting new move, you can now add single line melodies to your posts at 8notes.
When you type your post there is a new 'Add Melody' button which opens a fully interactive staff window. Create your tune and click 'Add to Post'. A code then appears in the forum post where the tune should go. You can carry on posting after the code and add as many melodies as you want.

Here goes:

Any questions about the new system fire away below.

Bass music for 8notes - suggestions requested

 Posted at 06:55 on Tuesday, February 21, 2006

We`re looking for some good ideas for our bass guitar section here at 8notes- bear in mind we can`t add anything that`s still in copyright, but we can do general musical styles and riffs -

Any suggestions anyone has would be gratefully received.

New Funeral Section

 Posted at 11:33 on Wednesday, February 15, 2006

We`ve compiled a new section of pieces for funerals - you can find it on the styles page:

8notes Mail

 Posted at 09:33 on Wednesday, February 15, 2006

You can now send a private message to other members using our new 8notes Mail system.

To send someone a message go to their profile page and click the `Send Mail` button. That member will then get an email telling them they have new mail in their 8notes mailbox.

Alternatively, go to your account page and click the Mail tab, followed by New Mail - then enter the username of the member you wish to contact.

If you don`t wish to let people contact you in this way you can change the settings on the "edit profile" tab of your account page.

Missing Folk Songs Refound

 Posted at 17:10 on Tuesday, February 14, 2006

We`ve a few people write in to ask where the folk songs database had gone - sure enough it had got misplaced in the site redesign that happened recently. There`s now a new folk song box under the styles tab with links to all 4000+ songs.
