4 Years ago we got some members added here as owners and managers when Jeff realized this group was a ship afloat with no one at the wheel: ArcaneOrchestra (Jeff Spring) Administrator WaiheDave (Dave Denize) Manager sriracha (Billy LeCoq-Mauvais) Manager EchoProjectStudio (Bobby Watson) Manager Bobby is back on here but with a diff username. Jeff's been away for some time (4 years, lol). Dave was last on 2 months ago. Effectively that makes me the moderator/manager since I have no more of a life than Joey and am on here as much as he is. :D No one who is in their right mind wants me as a mod for several reasons, not the least of which is I don't want to mod other people and am as likely as anyone to be the one stirring up trouble. I think Jeff asked me if I'd do it in the short term while he got things going again. And like any hack, it persisted way longer than it should have. I can add / elevate existing members to manager. So, if anyone wants to take on that mantle, PM me or post here. I figure I can also post up a set of names and have a poll, because we love those so much... I guess I'd rather see people suggest who they would like and then vote for some fresh blood. Mostly I come to this because I was asked to mod a few posts recently and just didn't want to go there. I am comfortable moderating stuff I post - e.g. asking people to pull comments or just removing them from threads or posts I start. But I'm not into being a mod for content in general. So, mull it over folks and let me know. I can also harass Bobby and get him back as manager and ask support such as it is) to elevate him back to Admin.

A while back I suffered a medium heart attack. Before it happened, I went through a period where my personality was whacked out. The littlest shit made me crazy angry. Happened here. After the heart attack, I backed off Kompoz because I felt badly about how I had handled myself here. Been back about a month now. Was all prepared to ask certain people I had been pretty crappy to to let me apologize. But it wasn't an issue with the people I thought were the ones most wanted to work with again. They were all just glad to see me back and posting projects again. And the way I acted was all just so much water under the bridge. So, here's my general take on protocol: If a project manager wants to run a tight professional project, he or she will likely spell that out in the description. If not, it's best to view this as a casual environment and to try and have fun. If you feel like something you want to do wouldn't piss you off, chances are pretty good it won't piss anyone else off too much either. If you act like a jag, people will NOT want to work with you. So you'll know, by virtue of the glaring silence, that you need to maybe put yourself into time out for a little minute. But don't let it ruin the site for you. Apologize if you are an ass hat to someone, be genuine, and expect a good result. If you find yourself dealing with someone who just wants to be a jerk, bale on them. No project here is worth that kind of aggravation. And if you run into someone about to have a heart attack who is acting like a nutball with a bad attitude, just back off and give them some space. They'll probably come around, and you'll find out they really aren't such a bad guy after all. Peace and love, all you groovy hippie freaks... rock on.

I'm not sure what the protocol is for submitting an idea when another idea has already been submitted (but not accepted). I often see collabs where someone has submitted an idea, sometimes it's from months (or years) ago, and was not accepted. Is it considered rude on Kompoz for me to upload an idea of my own?I've heard some people say it shouldn't be done. Thoughts?

Regarding ideas that never get accepted or never get any response. Is it impolite to share your idea outside of the collaboration. Should all ideas be promoted only by the Collaboration admin? As in hey i did this for so and so's great track hope you all enjoy. Or is that bad.

What's the protocol around invitations? I've heard that it's not good form to invite multiple artists for a particular part on a collaboration, so I've got, e.g., one invite out now for a bass player. However, what if I don't hear from them for a few days and I want to keep the momentum going - is it reasonable to just recall an invite and send out the next one? Or is it ok to send out a few invites and terminate the remainder when one person responds?

I've been playing around with some ideas for tutorials on music collaboration online. Are there any suggestions from this group on important subjects that should be covered?

I've been made the Group owner by support. So we should be back to business as usual for the group now. Hopefully group ownership transfer becomes a feature so this won't happen in the future.

Hi Fellow "Do's and Donters" . It appears we have more members joining this Forum arena (which is great!), but our leader has left Kompoz and I think it may be stalling. Bobby Watson is the administrator (and creator)of this discussion platform and from what I can see he has signed off for Kompoz.(A BIG loss to Kompoz) There doesn't appear to be recent discussion happening even though we have new members...Any ideas. Maybe a technical hitch there? While I'm at do "Spins" work. Seems to be little Kompoz advice on the matter...Cheers W/Dave
