All new users are now REQUIRED to specify their "Finale Version" and "Operating System" (Mac or Windows) before they can register. These fields will show up to the right of forum posts, and in user profiles.

ALL USERS please visit the User Control Panel to update your Profile to reflect their Finale Version and Operating System. Unfortunately, many users previously ignored the field and it defaulted to "Windows" by mistake. I have cleaned up the code surrounding that error, but many users are still affected by that bug. Please make sure you select the proper version on the Profile Tab of the User Control Panel.

These fields help everyone, but especially our moderators. Trying to troubleshoot issues without knowing the Finale version and Computer Type is a hassle.

I have removed some link ads at the top of the discussions to get them out of the way. The ads were simply cluttering up the boards and made it confusing to use. We now have only 3 ads per page and I have tried to keep them as unobtrusive as possible. I wish we could dump all the ads, but running the forum costs money and the ads don't even cover the cost.

If you notice any issues, please let me know.
