Mark,
I do have a question. Not that it's a problem since I haven't missed a day of practice now in over 1 1/2 years since I got my spinet - and don't plan to start now, but how do you know if I have practiced every day? Is this the Honor System? Can you tell by progress on the recordings we send in? If I knew last year what the MOYD list was I would have joined then (I started here on PW in early January 2008).
Thanks and Happy New Year!!!
Woody

It a honor system. No way to verify peoples playing. If you practiced everyday in 2008, I will gladly add you to that list.

Mark

PS: List updated

Mark,
At least two hours every day - since this past May when I was laid off due to funding, over 4 hour every day. I start work again in January so it's back to at least 2 hours again. Does that mean I get to use a 2008 MOYD signature banner?

BTW, born and rasied in Fords and Roselle left Jersey in the 60's.
Once again Happy New Year!!!
Thanks,
Woody

I see no problem using the 2008 MOYD Signature. I'll just add you as a new starter for May 2008.

Have a great new year...

Woohoo, my first post!! Please add me to the list and I'll see how long I can keep it up. We have an 18 month and 1 month old now so we'll see how that impacts my attempt at practicing.

Well its getting close to the start of another year. So its time to start the MOYD (Master of Your Domain) list for 2009. Its a great motivator for playing every day. And if you master your domain you will be a better piano player.

Here are the MOYD rules and the list of participants. If you wish to join after Jan. 1, shout out on this thread (and tell us the date you're starting) and I'll add you to the list. To keep the thread short, I won't reply to your post other than to add you to the MOYD list.

MOYD, for those who aren't well aware and truly sick of it by now, means "Master Of Your Domain." We stole it from Seinfeld, fair and square. This will be our Fifth year doing MOYD.

MOYD is a challenge/contest where we each pledge to get to the piano for some amount of practice every single day. MOYD participants keep up this daily practice as long as they can. Anyone who misses a day must come here and declare that they are "out" of MOYD.

MOYD RULES[/b]

1. Participating in MOYD requires you to sit on the piano bench and play something at least once daily. That's it. There is no minimum amount of time required. But 5 Min's or more would be nice. Just get to the bench every day, it will become a habit, and good things will happen to your piano skills.

2. If you are away from home, you don't have to practice. You go to the 'Excused list"

3. If you are sick, you don't have to practice.
You go to the 'Excused list"

4. If you are "out" because you miss a day, you come here and tell us the sad tale of woe that kept you from practicing. In the past, the reasons people failed to get to the piano usually boiled down to "I forgot." You then go to the fall off the wagon list.

5. We close all MOYD lists on September 30th.

Nice signature pictures will be offered to those who are 2009 MOYD winners.

So leave me a message here for 2009 and I'll add you to the list..

Nice signature pictures will be offered to those who meet their goals for 2009.

The MOYD signatures for 2009 will be post some time in the beginning of the year. Here are the MOYD 2008 signatures for those who have earned them.











MOYD starts January 1, 2009.

For 2009 We have the following categories:

January 1, 2009[/b]

Pure MOYD list[/b], those who practiced everyday no excuses:

Yes, I registered with my PW user name but it didn't work. Also tried with another user name and that worked. Don't know why... The important thing is that I can now log practice time. \:D

Regarding the practice log, I have an email out to Mark who runs the site because its not allowing 2009 to log in right now. I think this happened last year also. So bear with it. It should get fixed soon.

I am unable to add the 2008 MOYD signature. When I right click the signature, my only option is "copy." Then, when I attempt to add it to my signature, the only option is "delete." The [img] - [/img]doesn't appear. Can anyone help me?

The practice world form still hast it listed for 2008, but the date is 1-1. I entered my practice times four times before I figured that out. Any way to automatically change the year so it stays 2009? It reverts back to 2008 every time.

Not sure why you can't paste it. I did it this am. Can you try typing it in manually and add the img tags?

Mark,
I have tried typing it in manually between the added img tags and that didn't work either. I will contact Frank tomorrow and see what I'm doing wrong, once I do I'll share the info on both this poast and the 2008 post.

Mark,
As you can see from my posting above, I'm getting closer. Do you have any idea what the entire file would be for the top signature? What I have in the signature box right now is what is showing above.
