Thank you and goodbye - Ravetalk forums closing down

Random bollocks, geek chic, highbrow debate, pretentious tosh. You'll find it all on a good day.

Like others have said, it'll be sad to see the place go (and it's one of - if not the last rave-related forum I use) but the sad truth is times change online and when you've got domineering forces in the likes of FB / Twitter etc then although forums are great for referring back to old discussions peoples first port of call are other sites.

If it wasn't for RT I doubt I would have met anywhere near as many people as I have after going up to people at events and going "Are you on RaveTalk?" and sometimes getting blank stares back, lol!

I know Paul had a number of ideas for the site and put in god knows how many hours of work behind the scenes (not just in keeping the spammers at bay) - however as many of us get older life just seems to get busier for us all - boooooo!!

Cheers Paul (and shouts to the mods and others who helped behind the scenes) - no doubt I'll still keep tabs with most people on FB and see you on the other side. :D

Damn.... This can't close down! There's something symbolic about this forum and it closing is not good... But alas... For now at least The Glade is sleeping and I guess that's where this all started...

When we started Glade in 2004 we quickly realised the power of forums... Particularly as there was no bloody facebook. And in any case if the community had anything to do with that revolution it would have been called offyourfacebook right?!

Paul, I think, started Gladetalk in 2005 and it changed into Ravetalk a year or two later as other festivals that reflected the true underground sprang up. They were heady days and I can only thank everyone who took part in Glade and on this forum for giving so much to what was a momentous time in the history of electronic music.

I'm not going to write a load of sentimental stuff and am not going to put down my feelings on what happened to Glade and the rest of the scene over the last few years but what I will say is that when the forest burns down new shoots always spring up and when they do I hope we have a place to share our shizzle like Ravetalk.

Well done and thanks for all the support.

Big LOVE!!!

Ha, welcome new person. :D

The boards were closed down for a while, although I did hold open the prospect of bringing them back. It's recently been reopened, although I'm kinda wondering why I bothered at the moment. ;)

This thread will tell you a bit more about why it's been reopened. The tl;dr version is that I hope to build a new music-based social media site. Sort of like Facebook and Soundcloud combined, but for a small niche and hopefully not as spammy or as control freaky as Facebook.
Top one. Nice one. Get sorted.
