You remembered Wink I'm touched Smile

I've learned a lot about time zones from FAWM. Smile

here we go. let's go. everybody give it a good push. happy song-hunting!

Officially the FAQ says........

"I really can't start until July 4th?
You must wait until July 4th (your local time) to start writing. If you have a lonesome hook or idea you've been wanting to work out for months, it's OK to finally structure a song around it. Or, if you're planning a concept album it's OK to start doing research. Just don't take any old song and say you wrote it during 50/90. !!!!Note: the website will unlock song posting at midnight July 4th at the international date line (more details below).........."

"When can I start posting songs?
Song posting is unlocked midnight at the end of July 4th on the international date line. That's 9pm in Tokyo, or 12 noon Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), 7am in New York, 3am in Anchorage, etc. You may post songs up until the same time on October 1 (i.e., as long as it's still 50/90 somewhere in the world)."

Happy writing everyone Smile Clapping Yahoo Dance 4

While it says that officially it seems there are a lot of people who post in the US on the eve of July 4 as soon as the site opens - which now is in 17 minutes. It always amazes me how quickly some start to post ... clearly some ideas are pretty well formulated and ready to go! I try to have an album title and wait until the site is open to start writing and putting thoughts on paper or to music. Happy to cheer on whatever works for people posting!

I think they changed the starting time
from an International Date to Green Sandwitch time
