  1. Video edits 2017

    I feel like a good explanation of this being pinned as some kind of FAQ would go a long way. :D
  2. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    Pointing out people getting carried away with rumors and speculation in a thread titled "2018 Show Announcent(sic)/Rumors?"
  3. This is must-listen material. Would suggest Part 1 as well.
  4. To be fair, it has been a couple of years since a corps housed in Brazil for Finals. Jersey Surf about 2 or 3 years ago if I remember correctly. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazil,_Indiana
  5. Sign the Petition

    It is on Reddit. It was actually first posted to reddit before it was posted to DCP.
  6. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    You say it doesn't affect placement (I agree) but then you make examples that seem to imply that later announcements = lower placements.
  7. Sign the Petition

    I don't believe Jim said anything about the law. People in charge of youth-serving organizations should have a higher standard than the the bottom line "time served" via the courts. Recidivism rates for adult sex offenders do not bode well enough for leaders of these organizations to simply shrug their shoulders and say "welp, it is no longer part of his record." I asked (and answered) this in the old deleted thread and I will again here. Do people deserve second chances after paying their lawful debt? Generally, yes. Are they entitled or owed the right to work a career of their choosing after conviction ... say their dream job? No. It is a consequence. There are plenty of employment options out there for sex offenders of the youth. I am absolutely OK with, and would encourage leadership, not hiring them to work in these organizations. I understand a lot of the parsing on DCI's role vs the individual corps' role. We have seen recently how the NCAA shied away from punishing North Carolina for significant issues that were simply "out of their scope." It would be great to see corps come to an official agreement on the handling of staff backgrounds. But I'm not sure how it would fall on DCI from a legal standpoint. I'm not a lawyer.
  8. Sign the Petition

    Which I understand to an extent. Seems this thread, like the last time, is a little tenuous. Nobody wants to be the reason it gets deleted again.
  9. Sign the Petition

    Same link I already provided. So there we have it. So much tap-dancing in this thread.
  10. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    I hope this post doesn't bother the decidedly intellectual goings-on in the thread. Apologies in advance. News Meet the (crossmen) 2018 Percussion Staff! http://www.crossmen.org/news#Section33238830
  11. Obligatory Doug Thrower quote:
  12. Sign the Petition

    Oof. Now that was a HUGE leap. Evel Knievel would be jealous of this one.

  14. Tresona's SPiN Network

    This is really a re-brand and more formal push of their endgame. They were offering video and music distribution services on their old site http://www.tresonamultimedia.com. They would love to not only be clearing licenses. Content is where the real dollars are at. So of course they will structure deals to be best hosted and served by Tresona rather than individual sanction services (ie, The Fan Network). The FAQ is an interesting read. https://thespinnetwork.com/faq
  15. Hm. I know that perc staff news page was there earlier this week. Strange.
