David Ramos's Method Book Kickstarter

Posted by Stephen Bobchin (Administrator) at 24 Mar 2016, 02:27 AM. 34 comments

Today our friend David Ramos (often better known as DocJazz) announced a kickstarter to fund the production of a method book for the Ocarina. David began this project in 2014, after seeing the lack of available material, and this is his opportunity to bring it to fruition. The link to the KickStarter can be found HERE . If anyone has any questions, post them here, as I am sure David will be visiting the page to answer any questions, and this post will be updated with new information as it arrives.

The US Ocarina Festival centers around the main concert on Saturday night, but activities start as soon as guests arrive in town. The official hotel for the festival this year is the Hilton Garden Inn in Allen TX. Use this link to sign in to the room block for a room discount and a discount on breakfast :

Staying at the hotel will ensure we qualify for 2 free meeting rooms for late night fun and music! Last year we had an impromptu jazz jam, ensemble practice, ocarina swaps, and brand comparisons, it was a blast. A second room had late night board games :)

Many more performers and guests are expected! If you are interested in performing, either as a professional or a student/amateur - please email me at ocarinadiva@gmail.com.

Spam Prevention Measures

Posted by Stephen Bobchin (Administrator) at 22 Jul 2015, 11:54 AM. 28 comments

Hiya everyone! In an effort to improve your quality of life here on TON, we have taken some moderate measures to try and prevent spammers from making as many posts, because I know I already have enough Nikes and Kitchen sinks. In order to maintain some transparency, I'm making this post to try and explain what we have done, and to answer any questions you might have. To the established members, nothing has changed, and things will continue to work exactly as they were, you have just been moved out of the default member group into a second member group with the same privileges as the original. All validating members have been moved into the new default member group, and will be under the restrictions I am about to list.

The new member group will be restricted to only posting in topics created by established members. They cannot create new topics until they transition into the established member group. (Both groups are names Member, so it might be a bit confusing.) New members are also restricted from creating blogs or posting new blog posts, as it has come to our attention that spammers were using them to create spam posts. New members are also restricted from sending PMs until they have transitioned to the established member group. This is to prevent them from using the PM system to spam individual members, and while we haven't had reports of them using the PM system this way, it is a preemptive measure. In addition to the spam mitigation measures, we have also taken some steps to prevent sock puppetting and vote manipulation, which has been a historical issue with many of our contests. As such, new members are not able to vote in polls until they have become established members.

The transition is automatic at 5 posts, however, if you email us at Staff@TheOcarinaNetwork.com with your username and why you need to be moved to the established member group, we will gladly do so.

We welcome any comments, concerns, criticisms or witty banter about these changes, and want to hear from you as we made these changes to try and improve the overall experience for all of you.
P.S. For anyone wondering, we've banned over 500 spammers, and removed over 1000 spam topics, including one trying to copy the staff account.
