As many of you already know, lately there have been only a handful of members who bother to spend some time listening and/or commenting on the forum. Participation is unbalanced and unfair, and especially we will no longer tolerate members who come to PS only when they want to submit their new batch of recordings and then disappear again. So we are introducing a new policy, which is this: Members with recordings on the main site will from now on have to participate on the forum regularly by not only submitting their own recordings, but also listening and commenting on other members' recordings. At this time we are not going to institute strict controls like counting comments or forcing certain members to take turns listening to all the others. But we do want Everybody to step up and spend a little more time on Piano Society. To show that we are serious, several artists and their recordings have now been removed from the main site due to having a very low number of recordings and also not participating on the forum. We all come from different backgrounds but share at least one thing in common - our love for playing classical piano music. It's wonderful that our forum enables us to share our passion, our ideas, thoughts, or questions regarding piano music. So please...lend an ear, share your knowledge, say a few encouraging words. We really want to generate some more action here. Help us to keep the site interesting, vibrant, and fun! Which brings me to this little reminder - besides the Audition Room there are also other forums in which to participate. :wink:.
