To Terry Angelli and David Mitchell:

I still haven't forgotten about you. I've tried everything I know to do to get somebody's attention about the Administrator thing, to no avail. That includes writing to Dan Gabel, Editor/Publisher of AG, but I have been rewarded only with silence.

Nevertheless, I am going to go ahead, and I hereby do, anoint you both as the new Administrators. Congratulations!

Unfortunately, you won't be able to change the text at the top of the page, add a page, or "manage" the members. Which is just as well since it means there is no risk of any power going to your heads (not that anybody was worried about that) because there isn't any. If you do need to do any of that stuff, I'll still be around and you can just ask me to do it. [Believe me, Terry, if only I could even just find that wheel that turns so slowly I'd surrender the power. As it stands now the only way to do it is to leave the Group, which I don't want to do. ;)] Another possibility is for you guys to take up the challenge at which I've failed, i.e., getting someone's attention to fix this. Anyway . . .

SO . . .

To all 455 Acoustic Newb Group members, please meet and greet your new Group Administrators, Terry and David! 

May they reign in good health and good music as long as they see fit to do so!

Ya, ya, you just don't want to surrender the power that comes with the position! ;)

No problem, the wheel sometimes turns slowly.

To Terry Angelli and David Mitchell:

I haven't forgotten about you. I've written to Dan Gabel, Editor/Publisher of AG, about how to set you up or if he can set it up from his end, but I have not heard back from him yet. Will let you know.

Greetings All:

I've been tooling around the web looking for info on metronomes.  In that journey I came across this brief article and thought others might find it useful.

It includes info on both iOS and Android.

Semper Pax, John

Great! As soon as I find out how to set it up, I'll do so and let you know.  Thanks again.

Co-admins works for me. That way, if one of us misses something the other can catch it

Comment by Terry Angelli on November 19, 2014 at 4:31pm
Co-admin works for me or if David would prefer not I will step aside (for a slight fee :-). Just let me know!

To Terry Angelli and David Mitchell, who have expressed interest in the Administrator job: THANKS!

It's not difficult or time consuming. You will have the ability to change the description of the Group (See Information section above) and to suspend naughty members, which is almost never. I did it only once in 5 years, to a spammer. You might want to take more initiative than most members in starting new discussions you think would be of interest and anything else you can think of to keep things lively and fun, although anyone can do that. Jud Hair of the Seagull Spoken Here Group does a great job of this, if you want to look at an example. The only other thing I tried to do was be sure to write a little welcome note here on the Comment Wall to each new member.

I think it would be great if both of you could be administrators, or co-administrators if you like. I would stay on for a while too but not be very active.

Now a confession: I've forgotten how to add administrators, so I've got a note in to the AG folks asking them how, and I can do it as soon as I hear from them (or anyone else who knows how to do it!).

So, please let me know if you'd be willing to step up.
