Closure of the TDP Forum

Postby Hugh-AR » 15 Jun 2024 22:39

Closure of the TDP and AR Group Forums.

When I first bought my AR80 organ I joined Glyn Madden's Yamaha Club and one of the contacts I had was John Bridgett who had a computer business in Gainsborough .. LincIT. It was he who suggested we set up a Forum for the AR organ rather than email each other with music we had played, and then we could chat about things we had found out about the AR organ. And he left me to run it for him.

Then a few years later, Mike Bracchi decided not to continue with the Tierce de Picardie Forum (which he had set up originally) as he wanted to move over to Facebook and run what is now his Vintage Organ Group (vintage organs being his forte). I was already helping Mike with the Administration of TDP, so I asked John if he would rescue the forum .. which John managed to do in the nick of time. Again, John left me to run it for him.

So now John was hosting two forums along with his commercial clients. All has gone well for quite a while, but the market has changed, and I have had notification from John that the Server he uses for his commercial clients is no longer viable, and LincIT will no longer be hosting websites for commercial clients. The last day of Server operation will be 31st August 2024 .. at which point the TDP Forum will no longer be found.

I personally would like to thank John for looking after our forum for so long .. and for FREE.

If there are any Topics in the Forum that you have found interesting and would like to take another look at, then do so before August 31st. When you get a Topic showing on your screen, take a look at the top right of the page (just under the blue header) where there is a Logo for doing a Print View (only just visible!).

Image

If you click on this, the whole Topic is set up ready for Printing. But don't do that, as PRINTING can run into many pages. Instead of physically printing it, do a Ctrl+A to highlight it all; Ctrl+C to COPY it to the clipboard; then start eg. a WORD document and do a Ctrl+V to PASTE it all into the Word Document. SAVE the Word document, giving it a name to remind you what the topic was all about.

And Den and I would both like to thank YOU, the MEMBERS for all the contributions you have made to the forum over the years.

Sad to hear you are having to close your forum. I had to announce the closure of my forum on the 30th of this month but this is due to ill health. I shall miss it but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

With regard to downloading some of the Topics we have covered in this forum for future reference (as explained above), I have noticed that when SAVED as a WORD document, all the 'images' show .. but the 'embedded' LINKS do not. So what do not show are the embedded LINKS to YouTube and the embedded LINKS to audio.com .. which means that you can't follow the explanation properly as there will be bits missing.

So I am now in the process of going through some of these Topics and 'adding' a DIRECT LINK to what you are meant to be listening to. The Direct Links will take you there if you 'hover' over the link, hold down the Ctrl key and 'click' the link. I will shortly be putting a list up of the Topics I have done so far.

1. The first one I have done is for the topic on MULTIPADS.
https://www.tierce-de-picardie.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=479&t=10058

By first doing a Print View and then making a WORD DOCUMENT of it, I have gone one step further and EDITED the document .. and put it up into BOX. You can VIEW it there .. or you can download it from BOX to your computer for future reference. When viewed in BOX you will go directly to the MUSIC LINKS with just a single click; but with the downloaded WORD DOCUMENT you have to 'hover' over the direct link, and when the instructions appear, hold down the Ctrl key and 'click' on the LINK .. which will take you to the music.

I have created a new FOLDER in BOX called Keyboard Topics and am putting the above topics into this folder. Each topic above has an individual Box Link .. but I have also done a SHARE LINK for this new folder. So if you click on the Share Link below it will give you access to all the topics I have put up into Keyboard Topics. They are WORD DOCUMENTS (they end in .doc), and by clicking on any one of them on that page you will open it up and see the explanation of the topic, images, and LINKS to music to listen to. Clicking on the MUSIC LINKS will take you straight to the music.

https://app.box.com/s/0ayh7meb65jbegm4b2fd332z5s3v428s

Make a note of this LINK (ie. highlight, COPY and PASTE it somewhere) as you will only need this one link to access these and any future topics I put up. It shows all the topics on the one page .. and you can click on any one of them to view/download them.

Remember that on August 31st the Forum will no longer be there, so any LINKS to tierce-de-picardie.co.uk will say 'Page not found'. The BOX LINKS on the other hand will be there for the foreseeable future .. so make a note of them!

So sorry to learn this news...

It seems like our hobby forums are dropping like flies!

Big question: where will everybody be gravitating towards?

Several more topics have been added to the above list, and there are now 22.

Remember - all the (edited) topics can be accessed from the one SHARE LINK below (to BOX):

https://app.box.com/s/0ayh7meb65jbegm4b2fd332z5s3v428s

... so make a note of the LINK! Maybe highlight, COPY and PASTE it somewhere for future reference.

Clicking on any one of the topics will bring up the WORD Document associated with it, with the pages showing on the left of the screen. All the images are there, and the music LINKS can be listened to just by clicking on them. These WORD documents will be available to view and/or download even after August 31st as it is only this FORUM that is closing .. not BOX!
