    Just a quick announcement for a shout out to our new SSR's.. and our first forum moderator. As a note: SSR's only have mod power in the music halls, while only forum moderators have power over the forum. Their powers do not over lap to make sure we can keep the roles focused on what they should be doing and watching for.

    Hello everyone! 

    First i would like to congratulate @tanino on being promoted to the Song Submission Review (SSR) team from Verified Composer. He will be assisting me with the approval queue, and helping me get it caught up. He can also move submissions into different categories if you accidentally put it in the wrong one. I will be looking to offer the SSR position to more people in the future, however one stipulation is that you must be an active user of the site and preferably an active contributor.

    Also, on a side note i will also be eventually looking to fill "Forum Moderator" positions, the SSR staff are mods of ONLY the Music Hall's but have no mod power on the forums. I am keeping those ranks separate to prevent an over lap problem. Now that @tanino is assisting with approvals i will work on finishing and adding the rest of the music halls and fixing up the download and information pages of the MabiBeats 3MLE Editor pages.

     

     

    For my second point, id like to address an issue that has come to my attention about the private message system. Apparently a massive PM is being sent around and inviting users to take part in a 3rd party/external service. While i have no issues with what the service is itself, when the user is using our web traffic and Private Message system to poach users it does not bode well.

    But, unfortunately the private message system is usually an issue on ANY community, for ANY type of subject. Because of the recent abuse of the system they reminded me to fix the permissions and limits system on the private messages. The new limits are now in place for Members, and Verified Composers.

     

    Private Message Conversations allowed to start per day: 2

    Maximum recipients per conversation: 1

     

    If continued abuse of the PM system is found it will be disabled entirely for the normal Members and VC Group. Staff ranks such as Forum Moderator, SSR, and Admins still have unlimited usage to send you messages in the case that we have questions about a submission or need to reject the submission for various reasons.

     

     

    Thanks for reading, and continuing to work with us to improve the site, remember to post suggestions to us! I will be finishing up a lot of the to-do list now that i have assistance with approvals!

    Hello everyone, and welcome to Mabi Beats Beta! :hi:

     

    I am Yasuno (A.K.A Yasuno from MabiMML.co in 2013 or Yasunochan in the Alexina server) I originally stopped MabiMML.co due to real life issues and did not renew the domain as well so it was lost in the process. I decided to use the name MabiBeats since this is a music site.. and it made sense (to me!). There have been several changes and improvements since the previous V3 of MabiMML.co.

    First off we now have Multi-Part support in the music hall, in the old MabiMML.co it only supported Solo plays.. Multi-Part support was something that i wanted to support on the old site but was not able to find an efficient way to do so. Also, we now have categorized music which was another often requested feature. Once you enter into a specific hall such as the Solo Music Hall, or Duet Hall, etc... on the right hand side of the page you will see categories for many types of music genre's that we can place submissions into. Also, now when inside a particular music category you are able to arrange the submissions and filter them any way you see fit.. by most views, highest rating, best reviews, by instrument type, etc. You can also now leave reviews on submissions, as well as comments.. comment threads are more for discussions with the submitter or author while reviews are your actual opinion of the submitted piece.

    The submission form itself has been cleaned up so now it only shows as many blanks, as the category you are in. For instance if you are in the Solo Hall you will not see 5 instrument part slots for submitting you will only see enough spots for a solo piece. There are many other minor differences in layout, but for the most part it should remain familiar.

    The community forums have been cleaned up as well, it is now much more stream lined and more simple to navigate i have left off a lot of "fluff" that we had in the previous versions. This now focuses on the music hall and discussion in general, instead of a bunch of systems we did not use or only a small portion of people used. Searching is now quicker, and can be more specific as well.

    There are a few more changes to come, but this should be a decent start.. I look forward to the new submissions! Also, All submissions are still reviewed before being approved into the music hall listing to prevent spam or unneeded listings that just spam one note. We do still have a verified composer rank and that will be given out to users who compose their own music from scratch and not just submit something they found around the internet.

    We will also be adding back a showcase hall, which is a feature we had in V1 of MabiMML which allowed composers to submit songs they wrote themself into the hall to be listened to, but it did not show the music code. That way you can get reviews and comments of songs you have wrote, but may not want to share and have it over played in-game.

    Soon, after we get the community going we will be having our first music creation contest for 50K NX so look forward to that! Please note that we are still sorting some things, such as generation of previews... some will sound just like it does in Mabi, while some will sound "generated" and not exactly like Mabi we are having to test some different methods with song generations.
