How To Submit Works
Once you have chosen and entered the forum you wish to upload your piece to, click the "New Thread" button located to the top left. Give the thread a title (the name of the piece is best). In the large text box write a description of the piece and give any links you may have to mp3s, scores or video. If you have a file you would like to upload (gif, .jpeg, .jpg, .mid, .midi, .mus, .nwc, .pdf, .png, .rtf, .sib, .txt, .xml) scroll down and click "Manage Attachments", "Browse" (select the file), then "Upload". Once you have everything added, you may click "Preview Post" to check and make sure everything looks how you would like it, or "Submit New Thread" to go ahead and post.
Upload Forums Descriptions
Please read the description of the forums before posting. If you happen to post in the wrong forum and would like the piece moved, please contact a Moderator and Administrator; they would be happy to move it for you. If a Moderator or Administrator notice a misplaced thread, they may move it at there discretion but will leave a redirect link as to let you know where you can find your piece.
