Forum Announcements

Post  Admin on Sat Jan 12, 2013 9:05 am

As we try to get this place organised, from time to time, we make changes that we believe are in the interest of the reading public. This thread is to inform you of the changes, and the other thread in this forum can be used to take feedback.

Saturday, 12th January 2013:

Organised the Misc Thread with further sub-groups accordingly:
1. Jukebox thread moved to Music - Miscellany Section. This section is for all non-IR, non-WeldMusic(which will be in the Peter section) discussions. Discuss away Pritam, Mani Sharma, Mickey Meyers, M Jayachandran and your other favourites here
(Waitanimit for 5 nimits for MSV forum)

2. Travel, Discovery and Animal Planet thread - Self-explanatory.
3. KaruththuKandhasamy Corner - for all general misc sort of discussions involving members' personal karuththus on sensitive and not so sensitive affairs. Restricted to Members Only for now

There can be a debate over which thread falls where which we will take up democratically and decide accordingly.

I am so happy and overwhelmed to announce that we crossed 10000 quality posts and 140 registered users in less than a year. We will completing our first year on 10/22/2013. This is a big accomplishment considering the way we started as a low profile forum. Without grouch's idea we would not be together again. I was so sad when I left you all guys from the other forum (and app ji and plum also had some difficult times), but grouch was quick enough to identify the void among us and created this forum and gave us these wonderful moments to be together. Many many thanks to grouch for this wonderful initiative.

Initially it started as a small group, but app_engine's persistent posts despite slow activities here (he is crossing 3000 posts in one year) literally inspired everyone to share their views more frequently. He is our huge inspiration. He is one of the main reason the forum is so live. plum, grouch, Nerd, app ji, Michael AF's  (to name a few) excellent initiatives to bring back our friends here and Suresh ji's excellent initiative to make it popular among twitter world made our forum more visible around the web which is not an ordinary achievement. Plum has structured this forum for more readability and presented beautifully. A big big thanks to all of them. I apologize if I miss any names here, but it is not intentional.

Heart-felt thanks to all our friends who are sharing and contributing many facets of Maestro's music. I have never read some in-depth, intricate views on Maestro's music before. Since I am sure I will miss many names, please take this appreciation as individual appreciation for all your contributions. Can't thank you enough, without you all we would not have grown this much faster with high quality posts and analyses. Please continue to shower your invaluable thoughts on Maestro's music and other areas which we many might be hearing through you all.

I would request you all to share anything which I missed to mention (which I always do). Thank you so much again!

All credit goes to our disciplined participants, who have all enriched the forum with insightful posts.I am especially glad to see the next generation participating actively, and discovering the joys of Ilayaraja.
That's the least I could have expected this forum to do. Youth, you know who you are. Doff your hats.

Of course, veterans like Bala, Nerd, Jai, Suresh, kiru have all made valuable contributions too i.e. I am  making sure these ppl dont raise their hands for the previous statement addressed to youth Very Happy . 

The middle gen like skr, wizzy seem to have tapered down. But I am in no position to accuse since I have also tapered down.
Nevertheless, content is King here. And all of you who have contributed to that must feel really proud

Mentioning names is dangerous as Ia m sure to miss out someone or the other. So, I will just say: keep it going, friends. We have miles to go...

One of my dreams is that we ensure IR's posterity fame by simply ensuring notes for his songs are available. engE eppadi ArambikkaradhunnE theriyala...

Interesting to see "IR everything" forum section scoring 5000 posts (just about 50% of the total forum posts).

It also reminds us that though there seems to be maximum activity in the IR forum, in a year's time, other forums too accumulated an equal number of posts Smile

That's quite interesting!

Today we are completing our first year in our forum. Added compliment is we also crossed 11000 posts today. Thanks will be a much shorter word for all contributions made by our friends here. Let us enjoy this moment and please continue to share your experience with Maestro's music, movies and much more. Feels great to be among you all. Very Happy

Nice catch. The main forum backs up our data regularly (http://help.forumotion.com/t127303-how-to-backup-my-forum?highlight=backup). No issues there. Only thing I am not sure is how to transport all this data to a new site in future (if we go that route). I am not sure if they will allow that, still I can ask them.

Wizzy and All,
Good news! I researched on how to add BB custom code to our forum with the link Wizzy gave, but the main forum does not support/encourage it. http://help.forumotion.com/t89804-ask-how-to-add-bbcode-soundcloud-player?highlight=soundcloud

But there is a method to enable it (but I think we cannot embed the whole list of soundcloud clips of a particular user). Here are the steps.

1. Login to our forum.
2. Click on Profile link at the top.
3. Click on 'Preferences' tab.
4. Select Always allow HTML  to Yes.
5. In your post add the respective soundcloud widget code.
6If you want to add soundcloud URL to your signature, go to Signature tab and add the same above soundcloud widget code.
7. If you are not sure on how to get that widget code, for example if you want to embed this soundcloud url; https://soundcloud.com/v_s-2/prema-nidhiki-viralam, copy this url on the browser which will bring the audio clip. Click on Share button below the audio clip, which will bring three urls. Select and Copy the "Widget Code" and paste it in your post.

Finally: Very Happy

Dear blokes and gals, since I am not too active here, I would love to have you guys to take full control (actually you have, just that sometimes you need reminder amidst your excitement talking about the Maestro). 

So, any changes you want for the look of the forum. Go ahead. Any colour changes, why not, I am colour blind anyway.

Lets keep it fresh. Alert me through PM or something if there is a new subject that needs attention, I can quickly alert bros and sis in my facebook. We need some marketing...or all your hard work just becomes mere fan writeups...and the truth is, they are more than that. 

Any new discoveries? Sure....we can do a Press Release-ish statement and shoot emails from the Admin folks of this site. If good enough, Press would pick it up. Trust me, I was with the press.

I am just spitballing with you, not instruction or suggestion. Throw some back at me and the others. We shall see....


....in the meantime, words cannot express my gratitude....oh....F_ that....we are having fun, aren't we?

I hope some of you might have noticed that the youtube rendering is not working as expected and also you would have noticed the message in all the embedded youtube videos that "the youtube flash API is deprecated as of Jan 27th 2015" This is due to the fact that youtube deprecated Embeded flash API because of HTML5 compliant issues. Please see here for more information.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Now we have to move to iframe to successfully emded the videos. This is very simple. When you want to embed a youtube video,

1. Go to the YT video page you would want to embed For example: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
2. Click on Share icon just below the Song title.
3. Click on Embed' tab right below the video (next to Share tab).
4. Copy the whole iframe line.
5. Paste in our forum post and preview.

Hope this helps!
