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

    TheOptimistPrime 01/18/2018  8:03am

    EMC/AEA Line is inside and all I can say is it’s damn long. I don’t even know how long it is at this point.

    bolognese 01/18/2018  8:27am

    It’s pretty packed. Eq/EMC lime snakes around studio and goes down the hall

    Jpmaxpop 01/18/2018  9:38am

    Can anyone kindly update when we have an idea of how quickly they’re burning through those alternates?

    muffins313 01/18/2018  9:49am
