Midi Files - Please Read! - 22-09-2008 until 23-10-2020

As most of you will already know, the only way to get a tune to show up in your folder, (in your User Profile area), is to include a midi. However, this is not practical in many cases, as you may have put the tune together via audio, and not midi. In order to help get your tunes indexed correctly in your folder, the easiest solution is to upload a blank, or single note midi. Please name the midi file BLANK.mid, (using caps), then it will not be downloaded unnecessarily. If you have a 'normal' midi, then just give this the song title, as we usually do. If you're not sure how to make a blank midi, then just leave a short message in your post, and one of us will be able to help. To manage your attachments, just go to your original post, click on 'Edit, then the button 'Go Advanced', and below your post you should see the button, 'Manage Attachements'.

Please read the Forum Rules before you make your first song upload. - 21-05-2008 until 22-06-2025

The following are the rules relating to song posts, extracted from the main forum rules.

Your first post/upload will be deemed to be taken as acceptance of the following song-related forum rules.


==================================================

8. Posting of music, whether cover songs or original compositions

Please do not attempt to upload an mp3, wav, aud, or wma file. The system will reject these filetypes.

Only the following types of music file will be accepted, (please let me know if you think a particluar file type is missing).

.mid
.sty
.prs
.reg
.rgt
.pad
.vge

There is a 1Mb limit on all music files and graphics files - jpeg's, gif's etc.

This is more than enough for most purposes.

This has been put in place to make sure the running of the site is kept as smooth as possible for all members, without any slowdown due to bloated filesizes on the server. It must be remembered that not all members take an interest in the song sharing forums.

It would greatly help the userbility of the forums for all members if you could follow these basic rules:-

Thread Subject
When posting a song, please enter the title of the song in the subject box in this format:

'A Whiter Shade of Pale' (as an example, please leave out the quotation marks). Please do not add any other characters, such as 'nozz534 - A Whiter Shade of Pale' etc.

Do not enter the title in all caps, e.g. 'A WHITER SHADE OF PALE'

The reasons for this will become evident as the song upload list grows. If we try and keep uploads in an ordered fashion, this will greatly help the numerous search facilities that have been put in place.

Also, as you post a song, this information will be taken and automatically posted in your public user profile, which will look far better for visitors to read when browsing your music collection.

It has search-engine benefits also, as you will find your listings appearing in Google etc., so please try and get into the habit of forming correct titles for your uploads.

Gentleman's Agreements
There will be no Gentleman's Agreements in respect of how often someone can post a song. There will be a much simpler solution. We will discuss this topic, and then put to public vote (poll). When the majority decision has been reached, I will post the 'song posting rules' as a sticky, so that new members, and existing ones, know exactly what the position is.

The Lone Arrangers Keyboard Forum will not be resonsible for any copyright breaches in respect to uploaded material, whether covers or originals.

All submitted work must be the performance of the person submitting, and in no instances will 'doctored' or 'tweaked' midi files be acceptable. I repeat, only music performed totally by the submitter will be allowed.

Any music created using the onboard facilities of your keyboard, e.g. styles, registrations, etc. is perfectly acceptable. Taking someone else's midi file, and re-interpreting is strictly not allowed.

The same rules above also pertain to the 'Vocal Performances' forum. This forum is in place not to highlight the vocal ability of a member, but to showcase a 'complete performance', i.e. the accompaniment must be the member's own work.

Any suspected breach of the above is to be reported to the site administrators via the 'Contact Us' link found at the bottom of every page.

The thread in question will be temporarily moved to a secure area, until the facts have been established. Under no circumstances are members to begin 'flaming' the suspected member. This problem, should it occur, will be dealt with swiftly and silently, and is not to be discussed openly on the forums. I'm sure you will agree, this is in the best interests of the whole membership.

==================================================

Your first post/upload will be deemed to be taken as acceptance of the above song-related forum rules.


Thanks
