If nobody gets to it before me, I will be registering a new domain on may 14th and beginning work on implementing a forum and front-page. Anyone with experience, get in touch and lend a hand and maybe we can save what little the forum will have left after this goes down.


Message me for contact details, MSN, email, etc.

And no, I am absolutely not blowing smoke. This is happening and the only way it will stop happening is if I cannot find a way to finance the hosting. I doubt that will happen, as forums are very cheap to run.

What the ****. Just like that? No need to inform the people who have volunteered their own time and effort to keep this place running. This is ****ing bull****. I can't even...

Yea, and since the mods are obviously going to be sacked, why the hell should we convince anyone to stay?
I don't know about you guys, but I've poured f*cking blood, sweat and tears into this place in my time here. I've said this before and I'll say it again, but we were ALWAYS well off as a community even when the admins didn't hear word one of what we said.
And now you guys want to come in and "restructure"?
Do you really think this is going to help the place?
What would help the place is granting our wishes so we, the real moderators of a community, can help that community and, in turn, make it grow.

I can't see how that wouldn't be a help....

Agreed, and I think it needs to be said that you guys did a great job modding the community as well as just being a part of it and this is a real low move to do to you guys after all the hard work. Wanted to say thanks, because it's pretty clear at this point the admins aren't saying it.

Thank you, and it genuinely brings tears to my eyes right now because I do know how much we are all a part of each other, regardless of our roles in the community, and how much we actually play a part in the cohesiveness of what we've cultivated here for so long.

And for it to be taken away in this manner, without even an afterthought, for some "business plan", really makes me sad to a point I don't think I can adequately express.
I just want you guys to know, that I have always, and will always, have your best interests at heart. Through the thick, and thin. No matter what happens.

This makes no sense at all. Yac, how could you do this to MusicBanter? Do you realize what you guys HAVE here? You have a unique, loyal, and ridiculously intelligent community here and a top-notch moderating staff, and you're just going to throw it away?

... why?

What the **** is this? So the last year and a half that I've voluntarily dedicated to moderating this forum and trying to make it a better Internet community means nothing now? How about the time and effort put into the maintenance of these forums by mods who have been here for much longer?

we have heard the cries for years, and all the requests. we are acting on them now, in the interest of you all, and all our sites!
The only solid in this plan is the bull****.

first, yac had nothing to do with this. he is an employee as well.
and for the others, this is a good thing. you don't see it now, but that is because you don't know the plans we have in place. we really hope you all will at least give us the chance to show you that we are only here for the good of the forums!
