[IMGLEFT]http://www.themouthpiece.com/images/tmpnews.gif[/IMGLEFT] Introducing the tMP Links Directory: 2005 - Another Year - Another FREE Feature from tMP! Now that the Composers Competition has concluded, in our continued quest to provide you with the ultimate online banding experience, we are proud to announce yet another free feature we are offering here on theMouthPiece.com What is it? The tMP Links Directory is the natural evolution of what has previously been the 'Promote Your Own WWW Site....' category. The tMP Links Directory will give all our members the opportunity to add details of their favourite websites - all listed alphabetically in the following pre-determined Brass-related categories: Brass Bands Other Brass Groups Individuals Associations Publishers Manufacturers Retailers Magazines General Brass Resources In addition, we have created the following 'off-topic' categories in the hope of creating the definitive directory of Brass enthusiasts' favourite online haunts: News & Information Sport Computing Gaming Miscellaneous The tMP Team will also be regularly filling this database with sites we come across that we feel will be of interest to our members. How do I use it? Visit http://www.themouthpiece.com/links or follow the links in the toolbar - and you are free to use this exciting new feature instantly. You can: Add a link Rate a link Comment on a link Search for links - all links are fully searchable by title, description, keywords, category or comments What does this mean for the 'Promote Your Own WWW Site' category? We will keep the 'WWW' category online for the next two weeks in order for you to be able to view your existing details - but this category will then be removed on Friday 18th February. Please note that we will not be migrating any of the details from the WWW category to the new links directory - you will have to add the details yourself - we feel this is necessary as apart from the fact that the new method is more database-driven and as a result has a much better structure to it, there might also be a number of dead links residing in the WWW category as it stands - so this is the ideal opportunity to weed these out! The serious stuff: Due to the nature of the feature and the fact that we are a family-friendly site, as well as to avoid duplication of links, please be aware that ALL links and comments must be approved by a Moderator before they appear in the Directory. We sincerely hope you enjoy using this new service - and of course, if you do, you are all welcome to make a donation to help with the running costs of tMP! So, that's the serious stuff out of the way! We are all confident that this feature will enhance the site even more. If you have any questions regarding this new feature please do not hesitate to contact any member of the team via pm or e-mail, or via a post in the 'How to......' category. Oh, and by the way, this is just the first of a range of new features we have planned for you over the coming weeks. Keep your eyes peeled! Enjoy! John.
