TO ALL MEMBERS:
Please try to visit your page a few minutes each week to "Accept" or "Decline" friend requests. Each member is allowed to have up to 100 outstanding friend requests. When you reach 100 active requests, the network will not allow you to add more friends until some of your requests are either accepted or declined.
When you fail to respond to a request, you are potentially blocking someone else from being asked. As host of this network I would like to add every member as a friend also. Presently, however, I have 147 unanswered friend requests which prevents me from adding anyone new.
My options are as follows:
1.`Ask you to accept or decline my request by Wednesday if you are one of the 147.
2. Withdraw the request on Wednesday if it has not been answered to make room for someone else to be added.
The first step to learning how to use your page is to remember your password and visit your page occasionally. If you forget your password, the netwrk will email you your password so there is no need to "Sign up" a second time (as some have done). Just "Sign in" and then click the hypertect beneath that says "Forgot password?"
Feel free to browse around the network. You cannot hurt anything by clicking and you just might find out how easy (read 'user friendly') the network really is.
If you try something and it doesn't work, please ask a question... don't give up. You can ask any member who has done it successfully on their page or you can ask me. That's why I am here.
Remember: Anything you post you can also delete or edit at any time.
By all means enjoy your experience on the network. I will be adding new widgets or gadgets that you may find a value or just plain fun so keep checking in.
One last thing... we would like to reach at least 3000 members by December. If everyone would recruit 2 members we would be there. Please let your friends and associates know about us and how they can join you here. This is NOT a network for artists only... it is for the entire community. As artists we like to interact with students and fans and we want to be accessible also to potential employers. What we have in common is our love for and interest in the music called "jazz," America's classical music and National Treasure. This is our collective voice heard around the world. In the words of the great prophet of our craft, Charlie Parker, "Now's the Time!"
Thank you for being a part of this new paradigm,
