I love all the creative, witty ideas but I agree with Bessel. I think something
simple and self explanitory would be good.

You could have the simple and self-explanatory name as the main one, with a red-dotty subtitle on the main page. Best of both worlds. (I'm not part of this, but couldn't resist throwing that in) smile

The University of Super-Hunky Stadium and Beginner Recital Palace - yes, it has a certain cache.

someone who looks for solutions- I like it!
Btw... I have yet to play/post a recital peice. But now I think I obligated myself to do so by responding the this topic. Eeeek!

Short and simple and not overly cute. Cute gets tiresome after a while. Red dot syndrome and referral to PW can be handled with sub-heads and links.

ABFrecitals.com just makes too much sense. It's short, simple and describes exactly what it is. My vote would go for that title.

New to posting (i just got my piano yesterday, so major newb here) but wanted to chime in. I like mypianorecital.com which is available. Im a web designer too and I like the idea of something simple but not branded only to the forum that can pull in traffic from elsewhere, piano recital in the url will provide much SEO goodness for google. smile

Also this sounds like fun and my company (my husband and I lol) could draw a custom logo/header for the site after you decide, I'd love to make that free contribution. The sites we design are very art heavy since that's what we specialize in, one example is crazyrumors.com smile

And there we have it -- a professional's opinion! Thanks, sukiyue. Congrats on your new piano, and welcome to ABF! BTW, I like your avatar.

Sukiyue, I agree with you that a more decriptive title could possibly lure in more listeners. A title like "Listen to begining piano students perform.com" would be even more descriptive and probably end up in key word search results to a much larger potential audience. Your idea is valid.

My only possible concern is do we as a group want to keep our current peaceful forum putting along at a slow-moderate pace? Or do we want to be potentially overwhelmed with traffic that may become less personal and more volume oriented?

I'm not saying this will happen, but it could.

Over the past several years I have seen the volume increase here and unfortunately, the turnover as well. I realize that these are natural occurances of an internet forum and will proabably run its course anyway. I just don't know in what direction most of us would like to see this forum head.

This probably is topic for another thread anyway but I figured I'll post my thoughts on this.

Thanks for the generous offer of the logo. Along with La Valse hosting, Monicas organization, Sams recital index, Coppers stats etc, these recitals are becoming better all the time.

Hi, sukiyue - hope you love your new piano. This is the place to be for help and fun while you learn smile

I like ABFrecitals.com, or possibly PW-ABFrecitals. I don't feel the need for traffic outside of our ownselves for the recitals. It's not like I'm waiting to be discovered! And I would hope that those who are aren't tempted to be in our recitals - I'd like them to not be very commerializable. It's hard enough to keep people from cluttering up the forums who are really just linking to their sell-you sites - Greg must clean up several a month. So I like keeping us to forum participators and adjuncts smile

I too am a bit hesitant about the idea of drawing in a lot of "outsiders" to listen to our recitals. I think that we are very definitely a Piano World Group and don't want to break with that - we have a wonderful community here and I see the new site as something that really should not take on a life of its own, but rather just be an add-on (conceptually) to this forum.

Isn't it about time we made sure Frank was aware of an involved in this conversation?

Here is another possibility.

I can set up a sub domain of Piano World, say RedDot.PianoWorld.com or

ABF_Rectitals.PianoWorld.com or some such.

Someone would still need to maintain the recordings/postings/etc., but there would be no charge for the space or the bandwidth and links would still be relative to Piano World.

We actually lease a number of servers which are constantly being upgraded to handle our ever growing traffic.

Alternately you/we/I can purchase a domain, and host it on our servers.

If possible I'd like to keep the family together :-)

Speaking of which, I can also easily create a sub-forum within the ABF specifically for the recital discussions.

As you can see by hv's post in the Cape Cod Party thread, hosting multiple mp3/videos isn't a problem

Frank, this IS your site and having you involved in our recitals is probably the best all around. Then again, we (the ABF members) have handled these recitlas from the start and really have not had many problems. either way, it is probably best to have your support and blessings on how it is run while keeping it all Piano World related.

Could we just keep everything the same but host the recitals on the Piano world servers as mentioned? This way nothing really changes and La Valse doesn't have to cough up the cash to cover us. Monica will remain the administrator and I'll continue to do nothing as usual.

Sounds like a plan to me.

Thanks for the welcomes. smile The sub domain offering from PW Frank if your wanting to keep in in the "family", which is totally understandable, is a great one. Also something to keep in mind, and I'm not trying to be all depresso or anything, but if something happened to the member who purchased the domain name or you could not reach them when it came time to renew, you would be in trouble. This happens all the time to my clients. A client is moving their site from an old designer who hosted their site and ordered their domain name for them, they go to email or get ahold of the old designer and can't, and client is up a creek without a paddle. Its not a pretty situation to lose your domain after years of building something up.

Not saying that would happen with LaValse or anyone else ordering the domain, I'm sure you have your bases covered, but having a official forum hosted site would take that worry away from you. It's the reason I don't resell hosting or domains, to much responsibility on that end lol. wink

Ok i'm done sticking my nose in, its just to hard to resist when the conversation goes this way since it's my living. My offer of doing a free group logo/header stands though, I think it would be fun. wink

That actually sounds good to me. I'd rather not have a separate subforum for it - boy, am I resistant to change or what? laugh

Howsomever, it is still true that for me a lot of the attraction of the ABF is that we're all in it together smile Works for me.

I think that having something hosted right in PW would be great - particularly since we would not have to mess with older links to past recitals.


--- or am I mistaken? This supposes (I think) that the existing recital files remain in La Valse's system doesn't it? -which is what we're trying to remedy with a new site/subforum/thingy .....


I like the idea of a subforum - because then we could keep all the new recitals in one place, and we could have a sticky at the top with links to all the past ones.

A new subforum would be (I suppose) right that the top of the ABF, nicely nested within the community that loves it so dearly.

and...it's very kind of MissyDee to offer to make a logo.

I propose to drop the "adult" or is it really necessary?

And use org instead of com? It's not commercial, right?

something like

pianorecitals.org

pianoworldrecitals.org

One thing about a subforum that I think is problematic is that, at least for me, it isn't bolded when there's a new post and I never see the ones in the other forums. It's also physically separated from the other posts. So even tho I'd be looking for posts when I sign on, it wouldn't be obvious to those who weren't recital sensitive, and I think it would be harder for newbies, or even just those haven't been in one, to be aware of it.

Just my opinion, of course.

I see your point Cathy- I tend to subscribe to the recital threads anyway while they are "hot", and I also use the "active topics/posts features", which does show the forums and subforums. However, for someone new, yes,... it could be less obvious.

Wouter, I thought that it WOULD be a possible forum for posting, but of course it doesn't have to be.
