The forum there is laughable at best.
... at BEST


please, let them have their "forum" ... their "piano forum" (at least they gave it an original name)
They like it. It makes them feel a little bit better. Why try to deny them that?

I am curious how many techno-neophytes heard that they should go to the "piano forums" online, and ended up there not even knowing this place existed.

HA! no I'm not... I'm really not that curious [/b]

Honestly, KB, I don't understand it either.

Some people might go, others might stay, people can cross-over at will.

Dang. All this energy expended on a big nuthin.'

As my mom used to say, "You want something to cry about? I'll give you something to cry about."

Jodi, you have the bourbon. I think I'll have some white wine . . .

Geez, I didn't know the other place was there. I guess I am not a desired entity, as no one bothered to solicit my participation.

Just as well. I like this forum and the people who participate. The format is user-friendly, the avatars are fun and the forumites -- absolutely the best, most intelligent and interesting folks I've ever had the pleasure to not actually meet!

I have a complaint about that site -- that black background is seriously annoying! For that reason alone I guess PW is stuck with me whether I'm wanted or not. \:D

You all need to get a ****ing life. You sound like a bunch of bullies who are ****ed because some kids went off to another sandbox.
Don't you have anything better to ****ing do?

I've been a member of this forum and the other for about the same time. I've seen people here there, and I've seen people there here. This bull**** has never been an issue.

go read right now Matt...

"Forum rules for you newbies:

To make Piano Forum as useful as possible we ask you to keep to the following regulations:

* Please fill out the member profile before using the forum.

* Since the main aim of Piano Forum is to provide a service for professional pianists we ask you to try to keep your postings on an, for that purpose, appropriate level.

* Try as far as possible to keep to the topic. The discussions are sometimes naturally drifting away from the initial topic. In this case it is preferable to start a new topic but with a referral to the previous topic in the first post.


* Piano Forum is a moderated discussion board. Although all postings are immediately displayed everything is eventually read by our moderators. Their work is to keep the boards and topics as clean as possible without interfering to much with the discussions. They have the right to delete posts which are regarded inappropriate and to delete old topics that does not contain useful information.
Please respect their work as it is only to provide a better service for you.

We hope that you, by sticking to these rules, will help Piano Forum to remain the best resource for pianists on the Internet.

/The Piano Forum Team"

Looks like they could use the grammar police over there.

i checked it out and that forum is already moderated, and has been since last summer. the rules apple quoted have been there for quite a long time and have nothing to do with elena or any other recent arrivals.

i also looked at the supposedly criminal post by elena, and i find it quite accurate in its characterizations.

get over it, jolly, larry, apple, and the rest of you... you can't control what other people do. too bad!

I've read the other threads. I've participated in the other threads. I'll take you at your word that you didn't mean to be deceptive, but you were, even if inadvertently. I'm not sure how else to take this:

you're right ... the moderators have smelled the cheese, and our pianoworld friends are in trouble... the rules have been posted and our friends have been warned to be civil.[/b]

The rules were posted from one newbie to another, there was no warning and certainly no intervention by the moderator. No one's "in trouble."

To quote the always winsome Phlebas, Christ on a bike, don't you guys have anything better to do? \:o

From a slightly jaundiced perspective--let's sit back and watch how this little knot of human drama plays out.

It's interesting.

No Apple, you are completely mistaken. We were the ones asking about the moderators because we were looking for a more civil place to hang out.

You are completely wrong.
