Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. No, of course it's still fine to use the DMs as usual, but just be careful if you receive a DM from a new user with no forums activity who happens to supply you with an email address of someone who has just what you are looking for. Be very, very careful, and check on the forums first by posting a reply in public before replying so due diligence can also be performed by other users. This issue was discussed in another thread... keep an eye out for bogus/re-used/inconsistent photos, inability to provide additional photos, things like that.
  2. If you post a message looking to buy something then receive a private/direct message telling you to contact someone by email that they have exactly what you are looking for, please do NOT reply and report the user to an admin immediately. This is a new type of scam going around. Thank you for your vigilance.
  3. Definitely a scammer. He's been reported and banned. In cases like this, definitely let me know ASAP so we can take action...
  4. Hello I have just posted a topic on 'letting the music go into the ether' in  a category it  maybe isn't ideally meant for [ I meant to put into general concertina discussion] but realise I put into one on sale of musical instruments instead [whoops!] hope this is OK? can it be moved?

  5. It works perfectly fine for me now (on a desktop computer). Either the server was busy at the time, or it's something with your connection or device. Try again, or try from a different browser/device if you can. Or just use Google as suggested... Paul
  6. Can you tell me what is best way to submit audio or video to this site what format and size limitations?  Assume you get  it from your own usb drag and drop ?  Mp4 format ? maybe

      I really don't know... don't encourage uploading large files here since hosting storage is somewhat limited. Best to post elsewhere using a proper dedicated site for that sort of thing and then just embed/link please.






  7. I guess it depends on what you're using to browse, but for me on desktop you just use the little carat I've circled in the attached.
  8. Yes, the old tiny ads just weren't cutting it... trying out the upgraded ads system. You can collapse the band that shows at the top/bottom of the screen. Paul
  9. The site is moving to a new server for increased capacity, so expect some downtime tomorrow, Saturday March 20, 2021. Thanks for your patience. Paul
  10. I think I've figured out the problem... working on fixing it now. Thanks, Paul
  11. Oh well. Worth a try. Actually, did you quit your browser and re-start it (or even re-start your computer to be on the safe side)? I imagine that once the audio playback engine has been instantiated it remains open.
  12. I wonder if it's due to the ability of the site to play a sound to tell you that you have a notification. Try clicking on your name at the top right-->account settings-->notification settings (on the right)-->uncheck "Play a sound when I receive a notification" and click "save". Maybe this will work...
