It's here! It's here! Let the bells ring out, let the banners fly! It's sign up time for MOYD (Master of Your Domain) 2013. Join in - play every day - and see what a great difference it will make to your piano skills!

MOYD is a personal challenge where you commit to playing the piano for some amount of time every single day. It might be a few hours, it might be a few minutes - it doesn't matter. If you miss a day you must come here and say so.

Please report AFTER the fact. We only need to know when you DID miss playing - not that you "might not be able to play".

2013 will be the 9th year of MOYD on ABF.


MOYD RULES

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. Five minutes counts... but more is better. Simply get to the piano every day, let it become a habit, and see what good things happen to your piano skills.

2. If you are away from home (for business, or for personal reasons) , you don't have to practice/play. You go to the 'Excused list".

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

4. If you are at home, and you are not sick and you miss a day, you have to come here and tell us the sad story of what kept you from playing. Then you go to the "Back on the Wagon list".

5. You may start late - however no new participants are accepted after September 30th.


6. Those who have reported being away, being sick, falling off and getting back on, or who sign up date have the right to put the MOYD 2013 badge in their signatures on 31 December 2013.


HOW TO JOIN

Simply reply to this thread declaring your enthusiastic willingness to join in and be committed to the plan!

I will check in regularly and update this first page with the information you provide. I will not reply to all the posts.

Signature pictures will be offered to those who are 2013 MOYD winners. Below you will find the 2012 Siggies.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADDING IMAGES TO YOUR SIGNATURE:
1. Place your cursor on the desired icon,
2. right click,
3. go to properties,
4. copy the Url,
5. go to your profile page signature box,
6. place cursor,
7. click on "enter an image" paste.
8. save changes











Let us all send a big thank you to MaryBee for making our badges!!

As you can see the add a badge process did not work for me. There was no "add an image". What do I need to do please.

Hi Wisebuff,

here is what you have with the troublesome part higlighted in red at the beginning and end of your text:


[/img]http://www.pianoworld.com/forumpicts/MOYD12/MOYD_12.gif]

what it should be is what I have in GREEN - but after bot of the [ there is a space you need to remove.

[ img]http://www.pianoworld.com/forumpicts/MOYD12/MOYD_12.gif[ /img]


Technically you shouldn't be adding it yet smile (just kidding, I think you're a pretty safe bet smile
Cheers,
Cheryl

LOL. You're right...I haven't made it through the whole year yet. I'll wait. I've printed the instruction you gave. I've been practicing all morning. I want to play Wild Rider at least a half speed (still pretty fast)

Hello!
Reading the forums for one year, but registered less then one hour ago to sign for the MOYD 2013.
Work and family = no time to practise, so I need extra motivation!

My pleasure MaryBee - and I agree, it is fun to see the new badges...(I'm holding off on setting mine up.... I almost fell off the wagon today!! Can you believe it?
I didn't really feel like playing - but I thought..oh c'mon Just DO IT ! I ended up playing for half an hour smile )


I'm really happy to see what a great mix of new comers and "old timers" we've got already signed up! Looks like another enthusiastic group is rarin' to go!

Sign me up as always. I suppose I don't need this for motivation since I never miss a day but it's good for encouraging others.

Please sign me up! I did MOYD in 2010 but dropped off the bandwagon the last couple of years - I need to accountability and structure again.

Thanks!

Yes! Count me in. I should have signed up for 2012, since I didn't miss a day since I started lessons mid-May. Except for a couple out of town trips, which would have been excused.

Does it still count as a New Years resolution if I WANT to do it?
