Tuck: You occasionally notice such bands. Often it turns out that FB just won't admit they're on FB. Or that they haven't admitted they're a band yet.

Announcing the SG101 2011 MP3 Compilation!

Submitted by Brian on October 02, 2011.
Site News

I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2011 MP3 Compilation! Our 7th one! Just like before, this is a way for members to share music, recording tips, and to just have fun. The main emphasis is fun, so please send in an entry no matter what your skill level is. Here are the rules:

  1. You must be a member of this website to submit an mp3.
  2. You may submit only 1 mp3.
  3. The mp3 you submit must not have appeared on any "official" release before. Likewise, please don't submit anything that is destined for an official release in the future.
  4. The mp3 must be 8 MB in size or less.
  5. There is a good chance the comp will end up on Archive.org. Therefore, you must agree to their Creative Commons (Attribution, Non-Commercial, No-Derivatives) License for your mp3.
  6. The deadline for submitting an mp3 is Saturday, December 17th, 2011.

I have created an Official 2011 MP3 Compilation Forum Thread. Please use that thread to discuss the compilation and to get information on how to submit an mp3. Please use that thread if you'd like to find a fellow member to work with on the project. With the magic of digital recording and the internet, remote collaborations are possible. Make your own virtual surf band! Let the comp begin!

Please check out our prior compilations if you haven't seen them already: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010.

Graphic Artist Wanted

Submitted by Brian on March 06, 2011.
Site News

You may have noticed SG101 has changed! Yes, that's right we switched over to all new software with a new design by Ken Dushane. As we settle into the new digs and squash the bugs, I have a request for all you graphic designers. 

I'd like to get a new set of "news topics icons" for the new site. I'm willing to pay you for your work, and give you credit on our colophon page. Please send me a quote and perhaps a sketch of your ideas or a pointer to existing work. 

You can see the existing topic icons on the news category page

SG101 2.0 Is Nigh: Site Upgrade Notice

Submitted by Brian on February 20, 2011.
Site News
Dear SG101 Peeps -

As we approach the 5 year anniversary of the interactive version of this website, some changes are blowing in with the rising surf. As many of you know, I've been working (on and off) for almost 2 years on a new version of this dear website. The time has come to "go live" with this new software and new design. That time is tentatively going to be this coming weekend, starting on Friday, February 25th.

Most of the content we currently have here will follow us to the new site: user accounts, news stories, our Web links database, and our massive collection of forum posts. You won't need to re-register or anything like that, your current user name and password combination will continue to work.

Stuff I am not bringing over, at least right away: photo of the day, member map, calendar entries, avatars, and private messages. If you have some information in your private messages you want to keep, please save it yourself manually. You have been warned (although I do apologize for the short notice).

Since I'm just an amateur Web developer, and only one man, I have no idea what is going to go wrong during this process. I expect the site to go down sometime Friday morning for two to five hours. Depending on how things go, this may stretch into a day or even days. Please bear with me during this process. Play some guitar or listen to some great surf music. If you'd like to keep up on the progress, please check the @SurfGuitar101 twitter feed, or pop into IRC (I'll be there, swearing and panicking, most likely).

The current site has served us well, but it is very creaky and tedious to keep running. The new site will allow me to provide many more features for the SG101 community. I hope it will be worth the long wait.

Please discuss the upcoming transition in this forum thread.

Thanks in advance for your patience!
--BN
