    Hello everyone,

    I'm a new visitor as well so it is always possible that I am missing some of the history that gave rise to this change.

    I do want to say that I would find it valuable to listen to high-quality recordings by professionals who want to donate them to this site, but don't necessarily have the time to hang around posting on the forum. Something like a version of imslp.org for sound recordings--wouldn't that be sweet? (Although I suppose imslp is trying to do that now with their performances category, but it doesn't have nearly the volume of material as they have for scores.)

    cheers,
    hreichgott

    Hello hreichgott,
    Sorry, I didn't see your post until now...
    Yes, we are happy to have recordings by professionals on our site; we just want them to participate more often on our site. But we have so many extremely good recordings by members who are not 'professionals' so there is plenty here to offer a listener. Also, IMSLP is a great site! And they have many PS recordings there too. :)

    Does the PS have a facebook page or group? That might generate more interest in the site. I know two piano sites. One is Piano Teacher Central. The other is Piano Pronto. She's a new publisher seeking people to help get published. Jennifer Ecklund is her name.

    Hi, new member here. I can understand the reasoning behind the new policy but would it be still okay if a new member like myself who doesn't have recordings to share(at the moment) to participate in this forum? I'd be more than happy to comment on the recordings of the other members here and be as active in the threads as I can. I'm still quite new and I wanted to get to have more inspirations from listening to others work. I will post my recordings eventually, but not too confident right now. Thanks.

    I think that is a great way of fostering fairness. I'm a new member and as the director of WKMT London I'm very happy to participate i a forum that is being managed so conscientiously.
