Dear Fellow Kutakians,

Due to the recent increase of spam flooding, the account creation process has been changed so that now an Admin must approve requests for new accounts. This will make things less automated, but we feel confident that delays in approval for new accounts will not be unreasonable.

Also, after some discussion among the Admins in light of Sensei's recent words about the use of the Bujinkan name on the Internet, we have decided to make the forums accessible only to those with user accounts (anonymous users will not be able to browse the forums). This will take effect at the beginning of the new year.

Thank you for your understanding, and we hope you continue to enjoy visiting Kutaki.

Shawn Gray

Two very good ideas. How about a few articles or something for a landing page for them to few if the forum is locked out for users? So you have something for them to read?

Yes, that's being planned.

Cheers.

Hi,

It would be also very helpful for the newbies like me if the Administrators recommended that all approved account holders upload video examples of themselves demonstrating some or all of the following:

- Sanshin no Kata and Ukemi gata Taihenjutsu.
- Kihon Happo.

This would help ascertain the true character and validity of the poster.

For your consideration.

Regards,
Matt

PS: I sometimes video myself (training that is) and it is a very humbling experience.

Hi Matt,

Very interesting idea.
Not sure how many keyboard warriors we could convince to actually open themselves up to criticism like that.

For those that want to link video into the site, there's a cool new "Video Tube" link in the menu on the left side of the page... You can search YouTube videos from within Kutaki, and "pull in" any video you want from a list that matches your search keywords. You can do the same thing with videos from Facebook if you have the embed code from the Facebook clip.

Shawn

There are a number of forums to which I belong that restrict content to registered users only. Seems entirely reasonable. Kutaki is a relatively small and focused community, anyway. It hardly seems like a hardship to register in order to view the content.

The new version has some nice features, too!

As a newbie, what experience do you have to use to judge the quality of the movement in someone's video?

Good question.

I'm not qualified to judge.

Please disregard... unless you'd like to share some footage?

Hello Sky,

My apologies, I forgot to say 'please'.

Thanks and regards,
