Dear Make Music,
Why take away a tool that everyone uses? New customers come here to learn from the long time users and can ask them directly about solvents to problems. They don't seek out other avenues such Facebook and Twitter. I myself am not a Facebook or twitter person. Not because I'm old but because those social interfaces don't interest me as much as a company community forum like this one to solve problems or exchange ideas. I do go on Facebook but not for the involvement of work. I'm a very active professional musician, and no one tries to hire you through Facebook or Twitter unless you're playing in a bar band! Professionals don't use these outlets. If they thought they were that great they would. Don't forget that we work in creativity and we constantly look for the "New that works". Old habits die all the time and new ones pop up. I really think you need to rethink this one.


John

There's no substitute for a Macintosh-specific forum for Mac Finale users if you really want to connect to customers. The range of understanding is simply too great if Mac use can't be presumed for using the sort of compendium that is typical of these kinds of communities. Do any of the alternatives feature an area for Mac users only?

I'm 100 % against the idea of closing this forum. The new Help Center is a huge step backwards (unorganized, no logical structure, no user profiles, etc...), and the social networks don't fit the bill at all.
If you want to improve things, just modernize this one with a better forum software (phpBB for instance).

This is a terrible idea. Facebook is even harder to search than this present forum, and Yahoo is even more out of date than this forum software.

What possible technical problem can be solved in 140 characters? Twitter is the shallowest of the shallow.

I can't even find out what SHSU is using Google, so that's out, too. Unless it's Sam Houston State University, which I don't know what connection Finale has there.

This forum is more than a simple tech support site. It's a community, with its own subculture and impromptu leaders. It has its town cranks, village idiots, Dead Poets Society, hookers with hearts of gold, and banner-waving communists too, which adds to its charm. I understand why comments were disabled on the Finale Blog, but this is not the same. Degrading this site by dispersing the very best and most loyal Finale users will only harm Finale.

Just another vote against this choice. I've been on this forum 16 years, and without further explanation, I don't see a good reason to close it. There is a community here, and it consists of some of Finale's longest-time users and most faithful subscribers. Feels like a pretty clear slap to the deepest and oldest user base.

Really, MakeMusic? Your way of 'connecting' with the customer is to create an even wider gap? How was this community right here not centralised, accessible, and most of all, helpful?

Meanwhile quite curious to learn how MakeMusic is going to provide a community for their customers.

Mike, I've just registered for your www.finaleforum.com/ as you suggested on the Windows side. I haven't found the new Make Music forum congenial, although I did try it a few times when first announced.

These forums were originally created to provide a way for our passionate Finale users to share ideas, provide valuable input, and find answers from our community. A number of other great public forums for discussion about our products and best practices have become available since this platform first began. These include Facebook, SHSU, Twitter, Yahoo and various other forums and blogs. Also, as many of you know, the release of our new Help Center over the summer provides another avenue for discussion and input.

In an effort to provide a centralized, accessible, and most of all, helpful community for all of our customers, we are focusing our resources on the new forums in our Help Center Community. As of January 1st, 2017, we will only monitor and support these new forums. At that time these existing forums will be locked.

We want this large body of valuable information to remain available, so while these forums will be locked at the end of the year, they will be archived so that they can still be accessed by those looking for any of the helpful historical information located here.

We want to thank you for the value you’ve already provided to MakeMusic and its customers in these forums, and we look forward to seeing you in our new Help Center Community!

Best,

Adam Wig
Director, Customer Success
