GOOD NEWS: We might not be closing after all
NO SO GOOD NEWS: We won’t be hosting any acapellas I’m afraid
Thanks to those of you who’ve replied here with sincere comments and replies. We were very uplifted to see that you would on the whole STILL like to have an ACAPELLAS4U wether we had any acapellas or not. So we’re going to do everything we can and re-shape, re-structure, re-code and definitely re-word the forum to reflect the fact that we’re staying open. How does that sound?
We never wanted to close the site! We made perhaps a rather hasty (could have been worded better) decision last Friday. I think we overlooked the bigger picture and the fact that we do actually have (on the whole) quite a loyal community and pretty nice peeps here. I guess we also just thought that no one would be interested in it if we didn’t host any acapellas whatsoever.
And on a final note, a big ‘cheers’ to those of you who couldn’t bloody wait to do nothing more than postjack + spam the site. Guilty culprits will be tracked down and shot. The staff were quite disgusted actually with regards to all of that behaviour..

God I just fell off my chair. This is the best news I’ve had in a long time (I know I need to get out more) you don’t know how happy you have made me and all our loyal forum members.
Thank you so much.

Am very happy, didn’t want to see this community die!October 18, 2005 at 2:52 pm #580077
Good job i didn’t set that forum up for everyone then! Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooop!
To be quite honest I never really made that much use of the accapellas anyways, my favourite bit is the test pressings and competitions!October 18, 2005 at 2:59 pm #580079
Yup, same for me, is the remix comp on again then?October 18, 2005 at 3:06 pm #580080
Is the domain going to change _bio?October 18, 2005 at 3:15 pm #580081
i wasn’t one of the most présent forum users but this news make me happy!!
I think acapella could also be found between forum users by create new subject!!!!
It’s really a good thing that acapellas4U stay opened!!!October 18, 2005 at 3:28 pm #580082

I am glad to hear the forums are staying open.October 18, 2005 at 3:37 pm #580084
Hopefully we can keep the forum running and worthwhile but obviously this requires members – I’m hoping that in the long-term the forum doesnt die due to there being no carrot (the acapellas) to tempt people back
No worries there mate me thinks we’ll have at least 60% of the members back to frequent the forums. As Crin mentioned, the majority of us weren’t here for the pellas, we were here for the forum and the test pressing areas where members could share there remixes with each other.
Re the hasty decission, we forgive you , just glad we’re back.

Now its time to rebuild the site I can help with a new banner, what about a new name too? Theres so much we can add to this site to make it great, without acapellas.. its great the way it is but it´d be cool to add tutorials and other stuff.. also.. can we still upload 10mb? And is their copyright probs with sharing our mixes?October 18, 2005 at 3:56 pm #580086
be cool to add tutorials
Damn good idea Brady, heavens knows I need some mega teaching tools I’m tired of going around in circles.
I really don’t want to myself by asking question after question, like “how do I do this” ‘n “how do I do that”.
A tutorial section on the various programmes and not just the most common ones would be a great help.

I’m glad you guys decided to keep it open and all, but it still sucks that i had about 50 download credits that went down the drain… the site is nice for acapella discussion and test-pressings and all, but i already have (and have had for years) sites to do that, so I prolly won’t be around. I will never again share my work so openly on a forum-based site, since all that work got me nowhere. I know legal threats are a bitch, but they’re just threats. For a lesson on how to handle ‘threats’, read the legal threats on http://www.piratebay.org and take note.
Good luck with continuing the forum, sans acapellas.
This will probably be the last time I ever come here, so if anyone wants to add me to their AIM, it’s mentholated43October 18, 2005 at 4:59 pm #580091
Why was A4U closing down, anyway? This is the first I’ve heard of it, and I couldn’t find the original topic of closing down.October 18, 2005 at 5:04 pm #580092

If you look on the 1st page of this thread you’ll see the original announcement.October 18, 2005 at 5:09 pm #580093
I am sad for closing of the forum…
It was the best forum of exchange… too bad!October 18, 2005 at 5:25 pm #580097

C’mon Val! We don’t mind, and there’s no better way to learn!
Besides, girls who dig computers are HOTT, and helping them is a great excuse to flirt
Oh yeah, and it’s a good thing ACAS4U isn’t closing, I woulda missed all you e-tards too muchOctober 18, 2005 at 6:33 pm #580099

Oh and Rob re your signature, I’m not broken nudge, nudge wink, wink. When we gonna play???

Isso é muito triste. Não sei quantos usuários temos no Brasil, mas com certeza muita gente daqui deveria utilizar o site, para baixar as capellas apenas por diversão ou para produção de remix.
Triste nota, triste dia.

Damn, I don’t know what to say people. I’mma definitely miss the pella downloads, even though I rarely used them. But just to know that I had access to them whenever I needed a sample or whatever meant everything. Now what?
Oh well, I’ve been riding with this site since the beginning when we had to use FTPs to upload / download. Guess I’ll ride til’ I die–or until the site dies, which ever comes first.
Hey yo, ACAPELLA!!!!! CAN YOU HERE ME OUT THERE!!!!!! Okay…now that I have your attention, you said the site was having legal issues, right? Well then, I assume that this site was involved in some sort of illegal promotion, that is to say, illegal by corporate, suit-and-tie standards, and not by those of the free-world who simply enjoy the art of music. Have you considered making whatever is “illegal” legal. This very well may determine the very existence of the community you and BIO have built, as well its future growth. It may also put some extra cash in your pocket, especially if the big guys turn around and promote the site!!! I know this is not what you’re in it for, but hell, why not get paid? You’ll be keeping the A4U community (as we know it today) alive, AND, have enough money to pay for banwidth, hosting, money for yourselves, whatever-whatever…and still have enough to bake biscuits for the community, man!!!
Think about it. It may very well be a credible move you could make. Peace.October 18, 2005 at 10:29 pm #580109
whoha!!!!October 18, 2005 at 11:28 pm #580114
wow….great news. ….defiantly brightened up my day. not gunna say i didn’t enjoy the dl’s buit will mos def stay for the forum and test pressings… this is a great community and glad to be a part of it.October 19, 2005 at 2:10 am #580118
