ACAPELLAS4U.co.uk is remaining OPEN

Postby acapella on Fri Oct 14, 2005 12:45 pm

UPDATE! - READ THIS!

Hi everyone.

We're sorry to announce this on such short notice but ACAPELLAS4U will be closing it's doors at the end of October.

This is an extremely sad day for all of us here and no doubt all of you aswell.

We've been running the gauntlet for too long and we don't want to feel like a time-bomb about to go off anymore. Due to ever-worrying legal threat and 'stepped up' action from the BPI we really feel that it' in OUR best interest to do this now before it's too late and we get a knock on our doors.

You will have no doubt already noticed some lack of functionality on the site - sorry but we've had to do this I'm afraid.

Members whom have already made donations in the past are probably going to feel the worst hit, and might even feel "ripped-off" in some way.
Please be aware that your donations were put towards the funding of the server & its bandwidth. As our fee's are paid in advance, we will be refunding any donations that have been made this month as soon as we can.

All that remains for us to say is again, we're extremely sorry that ACAPELLAS4U is closing (just after we got a new logo aswell) but we've really, really enjoyed having a community for all things acapella, listening to everyone's productions and reading some really interesting, educational posts.. we're glad you enjoyed the site aswell.

Maybe see you all again in another life.

acapellas4u staff

p.s please don't email us asking for any pellas or when we're coming back - we aren't.

Very sorry to hear this bad news

Postby The Cutter on Fri Oct 14, 2005 1:23 pm

Wow bummer :cry:

This is very unfortunate news. I would just like to thank everyone at Acca's 4u who spent the time to make such a great site. All of your hardwork is very appreciated. Goodluck to all of you and your future endevours.

Is there anyway that the site could still remain a forum which does not offer acapellas. There is a big enough community of people who would still particpate on this site even with out the pellas. I know I would still be here with or with out the pellas.

Respectfully,

The Cutter

That's why I think it should've been kept small ie invite only.
I'm really upset about this. I don't really use the acapella part of the site I just love coming here getting audio help and stuff. Where we going to chat about stuff now?

All Music Forum For You.

Postby The Cutter on Fri Oct 14, 2005 1:47 pm

I know this is wishful thinking but just maybe this site could be altered so that it is a music discusion forum. No pellas, mentals or sample packs. Just a place were people can talk about music etc. A man can dream can't he?

Cutter I've just been thinking exactly the same thing. I wonder if it could happen. The forums have always been so much help for so many people it would be such a shame to loose it all.

Now this is a shame. This place has been extremely useful to me over the past year or so. It will be a great pity to see it gone.
Good luck with whatever you guys decide to do in the future.

What can I say, more than that I understand and respect Acapella and _bi0 about their decision to close the forum.
It's always been a legal issue about the downloading part of the forum, and it's nothing to do with that.

So qurstion is, what do you members want to do now, I bet it's gonna be an anarchy - a lot of different people that wants to start up a forum of their own. I suggest not to do that, as it's never gonna be the same anyway.

Instead,... you now have a couple of weeks before this closes down to gather up, start a new forum for the remixcompetitions, for the audiochats, for the friendships and general chats, but not the downloads.
Let Val and Juno be in charge as they are very capable of it,(as I guess acapella and bi0 want to stop doing this completely, correct me if im wrong)

It's the members that makes the community, so try keep calm, and prepare a new forum before this closes.

Is that a good idea ?

And at last, big thank you's to acapella and _bi0 for their outstanding work, flowers and goldwatches and all that.

This sucks bigtime :( The site was great, and so was the forum.

Maybe it's an idea to continue but on newsgroups only. So the site doesn't host any acapellas, but only indexing or something :?: Just like the Usenet Indexing sites do, but only for acapellas.

Val, get yourself together now.
Compare it with if you were living in a large building complex, and the community decided that they wanted to demolish this, to build a new road or something... What would you do then?

It's not easy to start and run a forum as you all know, so it's a lot to think about. But if you find someone that will host it, I bet you can get a good vibe going there aswell. Just skip the whole download acapella thing.

I'll do it.

I have space and a spare MY SQL data base. Let me do some thinking about how to set it up.
