This is indeed related to the spamming issue we encountered earlier today. We've been focusing on delivering Finale v25 today, but will continue pushing to get this particular forum issue resolved. I know that the older forums are still a really valuable tool for you!
I got through briefly, but then when I tried to navigate from the Home page saw the banned message again and this now seems to be permanent (I've tried several times during the last half hour). I'd like to be able to read impressions and comments on the new version of Finale from forum members, in case I might be tempted…
Still banned here, apart from a brief window of opportunity on another computer which has now been banned as well.
I am not much inclined to download the demo of v25, let alone buy it, until I have read on the old forum how others more computer savvy than me have got on with it. Not only does it seem unlikely that I can get through readily to read any such assessments, but it also seems unlikely as things are at present that other 'banned' users will even be able to log their assessments.
Perhaps someone from MM will let us all know when this problem has been fully and permanently solved.
