Post once, distribute to many

This is a good question, and without going into the "future of the web" and new technologies, I'll give it my best answer.  Feedback from the community indicated that the forums on the old CASA site were lacking in user-friendly features, and thus was not used very much.  Rather than spend the limited volunteer hours we have programming a new forum system, we are looking at different ways to share the same information.

We are creating an environment where members of the a cappella community can easily share and gather information.  Traveling to 10 different sites to find audition notices can be a huge hassle, so we are bringing this information into our site via the News Wire on the left side of the home page.  These are bits of information that were added to other sites, redistributed here at CASA.org.  Post once, distribute in many locations.

One of the big changes we made was allowing our community members to create blogs, adding their thoughts to the news and activities of the site.  Anyone can share an audition notice, concert or cd review, or press release for their group.

These features are only the beginning.  Features, like Facebook Connect, will allow for more advanced integration as technologies are developed (sorry, couldn't help myself).

I'm with the other guy.

The "news" thing really is awful for trying to find auditions. Frankly, that's what a lot of folks used the old site for--nowhere else did people know to come looking, if they wanted to find a group.

Now it's gone, and it's a real bummer. I know you are trying to make the site better, but in this case you've subtracted from it.

I'll keep checking back once a week or so, in  the vain hope that the audition forum has made its way back, and hoepfully one of these times I won't be dissappointed.

Looking for groups in NY,

Working on the final technical issues now. Should be anytime now. You can talk to matt@casa.org, who might have a more specific date.
