    Take it easy guys, I'm outta here....Done!!!!!

    sponsored links


    ***Advertisments***
    Well, after the recent removal of a post about Chris Heins Tromboes, Due to the recent change from Forum to Exclusive Vending Machine... I outta here.. I thank all the forum members for a great experience... It's time to move on..... I need to find a forum where members helping members is allowed, where we can talk about our experiences with samples and direct members to them... It's my belief that if a FORUM is gonna be exclusive to it's content, the companies name should appear in the address bar, So that we understand what we can talk about.... This saddens me... I hope for the showcased developers here at NS, that other forums will not follow suit, and exclude their products for their forum, because I know at least I wont know about their upcoming products, Cause I will not be here... I have done nothing but defend NS's moderators etc, regardless of the childish crap I saw form them and BellaD with their "Piss Off" attitude. Congratulations in running off a relativley peaceful and unbiased member..... Thanks for all the good time and helpful posts from you guys, and maybe I'll see ya in cyberspace somewhere in a forum...

    It's not just about Chris, I have no need for his Library... Like I said, Can you imagine if every music forum were to do this sort of thing? Imagine Cakewalk forums, All the sudden Fender has just offered to splash money down for them to become exclusive as far as Fender Guitars and product were concerned, And I brought up, In the Cakewalk forum, "Wow, I just got my new Ibanez S series guitar and it rocks!!, Check it out"... And A moderator came and said, Ummm this post has been deleted, you can only talk about Fender Products, and you are banned for submitting the link, Have a nice day... Ts what I see going on here, No different.... And goodbye...

    but were not every music forum. Who says we have to be or want to be the same as every music forum and why would any forum want to be the same as us.

    chris is a developer we have rules.

    There have been many people here who have posted demos of there own on different products on our site. So I don't see what you are getting at with part of your statment here.

    It's as simple as this if you are a developer and want to advertise here do it the proper way and contact us.
    We have talked about this many times before i will repost what we have always said shortly.

    There is a distinction that needs to be made here between user and
    developer. Users have every right to freely discuss likes or dislikes of a
    developer's library. Developers are free to also interact with users
    addressing any issues or concerns users have with their libraries. We
    encourage this because developers make better libraries as a result of
    constructive criticism.

    However, when a developer crosses the line from helpful suggestions to
    promoting and selling their products we take issue. At the end of the day
    developers are profit driven and if they intend on using this site to
    increase their sales then they must contribute like all other developers
    here. The same rules apply across the board to all developers and it would
    be unfair for anyone to receive special treatment. Advertising helps to
    keep this site up and running smoothly and ensures a steady stream of
    user participation.

    Because Northern Sounds is such a popular resource there are those who
    take advantage by trying to use it as a platform to further their own
    causes. Some have tried to insult or harass us with ridiculous aims of
    putting us into submission. Others have used aliases or even other users
    to promote their products in order to circumvent our rules. These are all
    factors that influence our decision making. Some act as if we are required
    by law to give an explanation of the inner workings of this forum. The fact
    is we don't like to air our business in public (I don't think there is a
    business owner on the planet who would), nor are we obligated to do so.

    There is nothing wrong with asking questions about a library; however,
    the onus is on the developer to respond responsibly within the confines of
    the forum rules.
