You'll have to download a mere 20 some kilobytes but it's worth it especially if you're just starting out with sheet music. Thanks!

Umm.....I didn't get the point in the first four forums. Do you mind posting this in a couple more?

Well I think it makes perfect sense to post under all topics that apply. Allow me to explain. 1. The "Instructional" forum: "instruction" implies learning to me, and since the program is used to help learn sheet music, I think it is reasonable to post in the "Instructional" forum. 2. The "Theory" forum: call me crazy, but i think sheet music, being as widely used as it is, is an important part of communicating music and, therefore, is a basic part of understanding music theory. 3. The "Open" forum: what caught my eye here is the fact that it is "open to non-members and members alike." I figured "hey, maybe there are some non-members who would be interested in the program too." 4. The "Announcements" forum: under this heading it says "*Your* upcoming gigs, records, *etc.*" Well I was announcing a new program that some people might find useful. You see I've searched around a bit and most sites ask you to pay a small fee via snail mail to use a program just like this one.

Clearly I've only posted in forums with topics that relate to what I have to say. Now I'm going to get a little nuts here and say that there may be a person alive in the world today who will visit this forums section and will *not* visit *all* of these forums. Seriously, does it really bother you all that much anyway?

How about a URL for a site on message board etiquette? Do you have one of those?

I don't quite understand what you mean. Are you saying that no one should post URLs? It's not like this is a commercial site anyway. I'm only trying to help people who are interested so "geez" to that.

Dude, what Stone and Mat are trying to say is "Only post your message one time in only 1 forum". That's how we do it here at wholenote.

I don't know how you would get that out of what Stone' said. He is clearly saying that it is unacceptable to post a URL for a site in a forum... yeah you don't have to tell me what Mat is trying to say. I'm sorry that I screwed up(unintentionally) you're system here, but I explained my reasononing for doing that and I still think it's kinda sensible. Again, sorry.

No... I was saying exactly what Daniel said I was saying.

It's common netiquette to only post a message one time and in the most appropriate forum. Multiple postings of the same message is considered rude.

Yes. It seriously does. Believe it or not if you search back for the past year you'll find that you are the ONLY person who has done this multiple post thing. It's spam. It's annoying.

Whole Note has been mercifully, miraculously, free of it.... until now.

Post your message once, and no one complains. Post it four times and suddenly it's like... whoa, what makes your stuff so freaking special? Volunteer authors have created several hundred publically available lessons on this site... ... people very reluctantly mention their own work... every now and then someone will say, "hey, I wrote a lesson on that topic, you might want to check it out." But it is TOTALLY against the spirit of the community that has evolved here to advertize lessons in the kind of aggressive manner you've used. You would know that if you'd spent any time here, but evidently you haven't bothered. If every lesson author decided their lesson was so special it needed four posts in four separate forums to advertise it this whole site would become a ball of crud.

Stop spamming.

Doug.

Here is a definition of "spam" taken from directly from dictionary.com: *Unsolicited* e-mail, often of a commercial nature, sent *indiscriminately* to multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups; junk e-mail.

Ok. Unsolicited (just to clarify) means "not looked for or requested." I posted ONLY in forums with topics relevant to what I had to say. You can see my reason for posting in each up above somehwhere.

Indiscriminately (just to clarify again) means "Not making or based on careful distinctions; unselective." But I did make careful distinctions; I was selective. Again, please refer to the post where I explain my reasoning for posting in each forums.

I'll have to take your word on the possibility that you've gone back to check every post from every forum for the past year (2001 not 2002 =P).
