      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

7) Respect other peoples music, if you think you can't make a better beat or new type of beat out of a sample someone else has already flipped then then don't do it just yet (Save that for the beat battles).

8) Enjoy it.

9) Study instrumentals from well respected producers, learn some shit.

10) Don't stop creating your music.

11) Wake up, Drink coffee, Eat cheetos, Smoke weed alot, Take a nap, Wake up and Make a beats should be your basic daily ritual.

12) It's always good to be a perfectionist and try and make the beat perfect, but sometimes beats like to breath too.

13) Always ask permission to remix another persons beat.

18) don't start a new thread if a similar one already exists

19) don't troll

20) use smilies sparingly ;)

21) don't post shit when you're drunk (or too high)
