This is the new forum. You should be able to search the complete archive of messages, and there are many other new goodies.

Hello Soma,

the messages are not deleted at all. It is possible to go back to old messages, even ones that are not visible at first, by using the "previous topic" or "previous message" links.

However, to be honest, I think that this forum software sucks not only because you can't easily find older posts. I am already working on replacing it with something better: CHC forum (similar to phpBB, but well integrated into typo3). I just have to make sure that melodies are still shown, like in the current forum, and I have to convert all the posts into the new format. But in the not too distant future many problems with this forum should be solved.
A little preview can be found here:

What is happening?
This Features Forum has about 30 Topics going back as much as 279 days. Obviously it's not getting a lot of use and so some topics will probably hang around for a year or two.

Melody Forum also has 30 Topics but the oldest is only 29 days old. So the Melody Forum, despite being vastly more popular, is having its stuff , eg, the questions our members submit, dumped within a month. If it grows in popularity, the query posts, and our efforts to help answer them, will be dumped even faster. Here today, gone tomorrow! Is there an archive where these "OLD" messages can be accessed or are they gone beyond recall?

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
