Audition Update is moving. Click here to learn more.

Hello Everyone,

You’ve heard us talking about it all summer, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on. I’m proud to announce that is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s anonymous, it's mobile-friendly, it’s easier to police spam content and fake accounts, and best of all, it has collapsed threads! In addition, our developer team will be able to make changes, fix bugs, and implement new features much faster and easier on this new platform.

You’ll notice there’s a banner across the top of the screen here advertising the new location. If you click through that link, it will bring you to the registration screen where you can create your account and automatically receive the “Veteran” flair for being an Audition Update user. Even if you already have a Backstage account, clicking through the link will grant you the flair automatically so everyone will know you’ve been here a while and know what you’re talking about.

We’ll be decommissioning this forum slowly over the coming weeks, so you should save any threads or details that you want to reference later at your earliest convenience.

We know this will really help to improve things here at Audition Update, and we want to thank you - the community - for being here with us through the whole process.

– The Backstage Community Team

    Hello everyone,

    In the last few weeks there's been a lot of feedback coming in from everyone on how we can improve things here at Audition Update. I wanted to make a quick post here with some of those updates.

    Firstly, we've provided links on the login page, as well as the 'log In & Post' and 'Post a Reply' pages to our Community Guidelines, so that our users here can more easily access and read the rules that we use to moderate this forum.

    The Community Guidelines can be found here:

    Secondly, I want to introduce to you our new moderator overanalyzingtv, who will be an active presence here at Audition Update. She's going to be making sure these Community Guidelines are enforced on a daily basis. Please join me in welcoming her to Audition Update.

    This is by no means the extent of the improvements we'll be making here in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more updates.

    Thanks everyone.


    I love this! That said, it might be a good idea to paste the rules themselves and force the poster to scroll past it before posting anything. I personally read them because I'm interested, but it's not human nature to go out of their way to look for rules- it reminds me of the MTA announcement to "please visit our website for a full list of rules." Yeah, I'm gonna do that...

    Hey bwaylvsong -- thanks for the support!

    (I posted this on another thread but just wanted to reiterate this for anyone who didn't see it) I just wanted to pop in and introduce myself as an official Backstage moderator here on Audition Update. If you have any questions or want to flag a post (or just leave any general feedback) please feel free to let me know either by posting here or sending us an email at Thanks!

    I forgot to mention -- we took your suggestion and now have a link to the Community Guidelines over post box. Hopefully this will make it a bit easier for everyone who wanted to take a look!
