Just put this in your siggy :

then remove the spaces on each side of "img" and "/img"


(I posted up above about inserting image, but in your siggy you don't have the prompt.....)

Hey,

I would like to be part of MOYD 2012. Is the cut off date September 30th of the prior year like 9/30/2011 or the year of the MOYD 9/30/2012?

If I don't qualify for 2012, then sign me up for 2013.


thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,
the cut off date always refers to the MOYD thread in progress.... so for example, if someone wants to join in at the end of Sept in 2012, they can.

It all runs on the honour system, and I though I didn't set up MOYD or make the rules, I like the idea of being really encouraging to those who arrive ....albeit late!

You're on the list!

I want to do it. Here is my first problem. I am in Denver, I live in Waco. Day 1, I'm already on the excused list. I will be able to play the night of January 4, and hopefully every day after.

Hello everyone,

I will receive my DP on January 11th, and I would very much like to be registered as a player from then! The MOYD scheme is a terrific idea!

If, like me, you can't fit everything into the 300 character limit, you can drop the initial part of the URL since HTML rules about relative paths will do the correct thing. This is what I have:

Code:

We are a couple of days in now! I had to squeeze in the first few practices but today went really well. How's everyone else doing so far?

I think this is really going to be helpful. I'm setting the time aside for fundamentals - so it's been scales and chord progressions so far this week. Hopefully it will help me to focus and to utilize the time spent to a better advantage than what I have been doing.

Pretty good so far.. I have a little notebook that I record my practice in.. its nothing fancy like I've seen some others using. Mine is more to keep track of the amount of time spent practicing. Things will change when I go back to work next week cry

Please add me in again for 2012. Actually, I've been practicing all along, but am just now getting around to logging on the 2012 forum.
2011 was my first year of MOYD, and it has really made a difference. There's many a night I would be heading for bed, remember I hadn't practiced, then go at least play through something before turning in. But for MOYD, I wouldn't have bothered!

Last year I also started with a teacher in group lessons. Sometimes we spend more time talking than playing, but I think the group experience keeps us all motivated. Some of the group members also have children studying with the same teacher, but I'm just by myself, so I need all the encouragement I can get.

Wish me luck...I got in 1/2 hour of playing time this morning and now am off to the cardiac cath lab. I'm hoping I'm one of those who gets sent home in the morning.
Make beautiful music everyone.

I'll be thinking of you and hope to see you back tomorrow! I am one of those who didn't get to go home....

Best wishes!

I love this thread! It has really made me accountable for practicing. Thank you for keeping it going. Yesterday I did not want to practiceas I was very tired. My plan was to sit down for 5 - 10 minutes (Just so I did not have to report I missed a day). Two and a half hours later I am still practicing. Not only that but it was one of my most beneficial days. Thank you again!

The cardiac ablation went very well and may really work to eliminate the afib. I came home last night and was too exhausted to do anything but today I'll make some music. So only missed a day so far this year. Shall I start with the Chopin or the Gurlitt? Maybe the Webber...

It's great to see all the new people signing up over the last few days! But just an FYI:
Casinitaly is on the excused list from January 4-9, so she probably won't be updating the list until she gets back.
