    Mad props to whoever's idea it was to make new users post 5 messages before allowing them to download music. When I first found out that I had to write 5 stupid messages before I could download the midi I wanted I was so pissed. But I've discovered so many cool things in going through the boards that i'm soooo glad that it was a requirement. I totally would have just downloaded the MIDI I wanted and never returned. And I would have missed out on a whole lot of cool discussions and information. It would have been a tragedy.
    Thank you sooo much for being a pain in my ass.
    For real.

    way to go, gabeisgeggy , I was the same when I started, as well as a lot of others. unfortunately, some still like to post 5 then download, and nothing else. remember to report to a moderator or post a message saying the word traaaaashpost if you are suspicious, and the mods will take care of the rest :thumbsup:

    Do I just reply to the "traashpost" and write that word? Is that how it works?

    I don't know, spoofer, It says by your name that you've only got 3 posts. Don't know what might be going on with that. By the way, I was looking this board over, and saw that the post where I ask about the "trash post", there were extra "a"s. I went in and edited it, not wanting to look like an idiot, back to a single "a". Then I realized that you probably do a search for "tr*shposts" to find where they are, and this particular one doesn't refer to one. So you added the A's in order for it to not show up. Very clever. hehe.

    you're catching on gabe.

    I think spoofer may have had a coupla traashpoosts and they got deleted, thats why his post count dropped back
