♥ Flute ♥ Piccolo ♥


Welcome to the International Flute Society community!

This community is based solely on the flute, flute music, flute majoring, concert band, marching band, and anything having to do with the flute or any instrument in the flute family. Please join if you are interested in or play the flute! To join, please see the


1. Be Considerate! It is unbearable to come to a community and be treated like you don't belong. If you do anything to criticize, discriminate, or bash any other member you will be removed from this community. Even if they did it first.
2. Don't get off topic! This is a FLUTE community. That means we talk about flute! If you're talking about general classical music, that's fine. But if you feel like talking about anything else, there are other communities. We don't mind occassional piccolo conversations here, but we've made a LiveJournal community for that too, so please post at piccolo_society for that, not here!
3. Do not promote! If the community is really that great, e-mail a moderator and we'll promote it ourselves. Otherwise, please don't clog up the posts with unwanted promoting! If it really warrants promoting, we'll be the ones to let everyone know!
4. CUT! CUT! CUT! If your post is unbelievably long, please LJ-Cut it! If you don't know how to LJ-Cut please refer to the LiveJournal FAQs. Nobody likes scrolling through their friends list to find a 5,000 word journal entry!
5. Friends Only! Please make all of your posts "Friends Only". This is a membership only community, so we'd like to keep our posts that way too!
6. Stay Active and HAVE FUN! The reason you joined this community (or are going to) is to have fun and learn more about the flute. Please enjoy yourself, or if you're not, let us know! It's our job to make sure that this community is doing it's job! If you have any problems, feel free to e-mail internationalflutesociety@hotmail.com (yes, we know it's long!) and we'll try our best to help you.

Hi! I know posting has been turned off for a bit, but I've been waiting for it to be turned on so I can post the stuff about me. Or am I missing something?
I know you stopped looking at membership applications for a period in January, but have you started again? I applied to join a few days ago but I haven't been able to do the survey yet due to not having posting access... Anyone have an idea of when the community will be back up and running?
yeah, i applied a few days after you, i believe, and i also haven't receieved posting access. hopefully it's up soon.
Hi. I was wondering if I could apply to join?

I have to say that I think it is rather ridiculous of whoever is running this community to make everyone that joins jump through so many hoops. Look at your rule #5. There is nothing that you have to say that can't be found in other locations, so why restrict the flow of potentially useful information to those few you choose to accept? And where do you get off deciding who should be privy to your secret information anyway? If you truly wished to exchange information regarding the instrument, you would allow anyone with an interest in the flute and a desire to learn access to your little clique. Rather a juvenile way to do things, I should say.
