"Fredrick,
Please call me Mariza in future.
I wrote "c o n t r i t i o n s."  You thought I wrote "contributions."  (Yes, of course I know members have made contributions that can be found in their home pages.)
At the time this happened with AJ, I…"

Without any doubt it is true that you are very kind, sometimes even inspirational, in the feedback you provide to composers on the forum.  Myself personally I only experienced encouragement and keen comments from you on the pieces I uploaded.…"

"Hi Paul,
The vast majority of composers leave this forum shortly after joining. I have come to feel that that is the way of it. Your  comment on why he might have left seems spot-on: asking someone to follow the rules is a weak reason to leave, but…"

"I don't think we can say he was driven off by those comments on the rules can we? People of all ages will come and go and that is their choice. I think perhaps he might have expected just unrestrained praise for his music and since he didn't get…"

The reason that rule #2 exists is partly because the forum is not about promoting your outside site, but instead, participating in this one. If you post a single piece directly on this site instead of linking out, you are showing respect…"

  • Following the example set by H.S. Teoh, I too am sending messages to all my Forum friends asking them to vote in the ongoing music contest under the theme of "fireworks".  By voting, you demonstrate your interest and support for the creation of new classical music pieces.  Also, it is fun to listen to all the entries and vote on them.

    Thank you!
