Howdy, I'm fairly new and looking into the community vibe around these here parts. Find the site UX somewhat confusing but as recommended I am attempting to send out invites to my collaboration. Figured the advanced search out but when I get to the "send invitation" screen it autocompletes my collaboration when I type it in the field but when I try and send the invitation I get a "collaboration not found" error. Am I doing it wrong? Or is this a PRO/PLUS account feature? Thanks

Heya Ralph. Hmm...well, as a test I sent you an invite the same way you were trying (I assume thru the settings on the project, Invite, advanced search etc.) and it sent fine. (I recalled it, btw - so you ought not to be spammed with a notification...not sure.) I don't think this is an issue of membership level - you should be able to invite people to projects. I would make sure that when you fill in the proj name field you really get an entry - maybe mouse click to it and hit enter. What browser are you using, what OS?

Thanks for helping sriracha! I did receive an invite notification email but when I clicked through from there it took me to an "invitations / pending" screen in "my studio" but nothing is in the list? Your invite also showed up in my notifications here on the site and when I click that it takes me directly to your collaboration page, so that works. I am using Chrome Version 90 on a Mac running Catalina (10.15), so, not ancient by any means

Yeah - I "recalled" the invite after testing hoping you wouldn't get bothered by it, lol. I have the same level Chrome and OSX so that can't be it. Have you tried going to the person's profile and using the Invite button? Kinda a hack but if it works, then it's easy enough to file a bug and hope it gets fixed in the next rev.

That explains that mystery then :-) I just tried the things you suggested and it still gives the same error on that invite screen. I just tried sending an invite to a "plus" member from their profile page. I am wondering if it is something in the way I set up my collaboration? I'll try and send you an invite to my other collaboration and see if that works, so, please ignore. I'll see if I can find the recall button if it works but can't make any promises

So sending an invite from the person's profile page failed as well? I got your invite, fwiw, so that worked.

My other collab worked fine so it must be something with the one I am actually sending out invites for. I'll check what is different with that one that might be causing the error. Thanks for your help! p.s. Found the recall ez pz

nosing in.. over the weekend the site was having issues .. I set someone up on a private.. Next day they weren't there?? PS on the invite topic.. just an FYI>> if not already covered.. it never hurts to send a direct message (PM) to peeps your wanting to join your project.. Its got some advantages.. for example in my case I miss tons of notifies, and check my invitations like once every 2-3 months.. if that.. PM's are super direct, people will get those for sure and it gives you a quick upfront wheel greasing chance.. Something like: 'Hey I've been checking out your work and I think you would be perfect for a project I've just opened. Here's a link, take a listen , and let me know. Thanks. CHUM IN THE WATER!! LOLOLAHAHAHA ps last time I checked invites I had 5 never saw a notify...

you do know that invites show up in your PM's - it's option to select at the top. :D

Thanks for the tip Lil' Joe. DM might be the better option cuz the only diff on the collab where invites aren't working is that I have accepted one contribution for it. Also noticed that some people have the invite button disabled but their message button is still active

liljoe6string   commented 15 days ago


yep~~ I think we use PM for private message here?.. but DM works well~~ bonus Depeche Mode ref lol! Kompoz can be a pisser at times, but its a great way to grow your art, get better and do some great songs. Takes a while to build a stable of go to players, but it will happen, esp if you dive into some peoples projects doing vox & gtr.. I could really see you finding some common earthy ground with>> https://www.kompoz.com/music/artist/offthewall He does great earthy folk.. and plays a few instruments.. check out his work.. good luck

One last update with the "resolution" I just figured out. It's definitely a bug with Kompoz. If you have a comma in the title of your collaboration you'll get an error when trying to send out an invite for it.

If you want some crappy basement drums invite me, gotta hear it now.

ralphieboy   commented 15 days ago


Just checked out some of your collabs Midipink and diggin' what your doin' but this old timey stuff is sans drums. Got some other more "experimental" that I'll prolly put up here once I get this little project in the bag.
