    tMP, me and the future of the site :)

    Hey All I wanted to let you all know what's happening with tMP, and of some exciting plans for the future. As you're all aware, when I founded tMP, my goal was to create a site that catered for people involved at all levels of banding, for everyone to have an opportunity to post issues, and to...

    Sold/Expired For Sale: Besson Sovereign Bb Cornet GS Large Bore £800

    I have decided to sell my much cherished cornet as - putting it simply - it's not being used any more, and it's just sat there in the garage doing nothing when someone could be producing great sounds with it. It's the much sought after older large bore Bb B&S Besson Sovereign GS...

    Appeal for Supporting tMP and voluntary contributions to the running costs

    Hi All Well, every now and then I make an appeal on here - not that often, but just every now and then. Once again the time has arrived for me to make this appeal to our wonderful tMP'ers generosity and better nature, and ask if anyone out there finds what we offer here at tMP a useful...

    Odd?

    This forum uses the very same software as thousands of forums out there. Nothing is different. Nothing is unique about the way to post on here. If you can post on facebook or another forum, you can post on here. What on earth is so difficult about clicking on a forum name, then clicking...

    Does pressure get applied to TMP Admin when certain names are mentioned?

    Stumbled upon this thread again this morning... always interesting to gauge peoples opinions on such matters. Many thanks though, to those who give thanks, and those who don't - as regardless of your own opinion, each of you still come here to visit and sometimes post. What does baffle me...

    Does pressure get applied to TMP Admin when certain names are mentioned?

    Sometimes it's good to keep threads open and viewable. Allows people to see some of the more inane things we are forced to deal with. :)

    Does pressure get applied to TMP Admin when certain names are mentioned?

    No. You could be sued, because I can - and subsequently the Police can - trace your IP through your ISP etc. I have provided information to the authorities in the past. I could also be sued. Hence some of the editing of posts and threads. I am not after any medals or accolades, sympathy or...

    Does pressure get applied to TMP Admin when certain names are mentioned?

    Nope, I am not bullied by anyone - don't care who they are. However I will respond when and if contacted by people who are personally abused on here, and I have been by one or two individuals. If there are personal comments that have been made, I will of course do the right thing and remove...

    Do you think the move to a Kapitol Owned registry is Good, Bad or . . . . .

    Guys and gals.... feel free to debate the whole new registry issue to your hearts content, but please keep the personal insults at bay. Criticize the suggestion / proposal / process / method all you want - but no personal insults. Simple as. Thanks.

    How is it that...

    :) Again - Dave - please can you be a little more specific. Which thread do you refer to please? For various personal reasons I do not have time to read through many threads on here, and we are light in the voluntary moderator department at the moment, so as such I am sure there's stuff that...

    Brass Band websites taken too seriously?

    Ha, I'm no hero Mike, I always said when I started tMP that I did it for the majority of banding peeps, those who rarely get the chance to be heard, and not necessarily those who tread in circles with the elite and higher echelons.

    Brass Band websites taken too seriously?

    The likes of the Childs' and Mr Snell are not interested in what goes on here on tMP, you're right. As to it being true or not, I had heard that Dyke members were specifically told not to post or get involved with discussions on tMP. At one time when I spoke to one of the the Childs (can't...
