  1. RW 3rd April - Correction

    We apologise for a printed mistake on the Puzzle Page of the 3rd April issue of The Ringing World.

    Download a single corrected page here.

    In the printed version of the RW, the Methodoku puzzle ’Methodoku #1’ on p.350 has an instruction ’No more than two consecutive blows in one place’ which should not be printed. There are no additional instructions for this puzzle.

    This has also been corrected in the online edition, which can be downloaded here.

  3. BellBoard performance submissions

    While we appreciate that the community aspect of BellBoard may be helping many ringers feel connected during this difficult time, there have been lots of performances posted recently which we believe are not appreciated by many of our users and don’t help BellBoard keep consistent records of change ringing.

    Unless you believe it to be of wider interest, please refrain from posting performances where a computer has controlled one or more of the bells, whether on a simulator or a personal computer.

    We support tolling, performances by bands ringing on simulators or computers, and performances that genuinely reflect change ringing (including call change ringing) performed entirely by people, even if the sound is electronic.

    Users may wish to use the Facebook group ’BellBoard for simulators’.
