Thread: No More Electrogarden?

  1. #1


    Agree? Yes No

    Unhappy No More Electrogarden?

    I just recieved an e-mail saying that Electrogarden is going to go offline before Jan 9th. Is this true?? Is there anyway we can contribute money to keep the site going?
    I would be willing to help out anyway I can..



    For those who don't check their mail:

    Dear Electrogarden Member,

    We are saddened to inform you that as our current hosting period ends, the Electrogarden Network will be going offline sometime prior to January 9, 2004.
    During the last 2+ years, the site has seen exciting growth both in its membership and in Electronic Music hosted multimedia content. The Electrogarden currently hosts over 160 electronic artists from more than a dozen labels worldwide - as well as many independent groups, providing more than 600 tracks of electronic music, and delivering over 200 Gigs of content monthly to more than 8000 members along with more than a thousand guests on a daily basis. Unfortunately, Electrogarden.com has not been successful in establishing any means of revenue and after more than 2 years of presenting the site in this fashion it is no longer possible to ignore the heavy financial toll that the site carries with it. As the site continues to grow it is also clear that while the Electrogarden is successful in principle, the site lacks the proper format for generating that essential revenue required to support its own hosting and infrastructure, and with this ongoing, continued growth of expe!
    nse the Electrogarden has become impossible to present at the current time. We are evaluating other options, hosting arrangements and site content changes that could allow presenting the site again, hopefully at some time in the future.

    In closing, a special thanks to some of the people behind the scenes that have helped to grow and maintain the Electrogarden Network:
    The Community section Admin Team and site Member Moderators for their daily efforts keeping the member interactive sections of the site running smoothly.
    Jez Porat, Michael Casano, Rix Roundtree-Harrison, Carl Jenkinson, Danny King, Megan Erben, Craig Smidt, and others, all of whom have kept the Electrogarden "evergreen" with their contributions of music news, reviews, articles, and our special interviews and artist features.
    DialTone for Linux configuration, Tivoli backups, disaster recovery planning, OS maintenance and all the security patches.
    Todd Durrant / ADD for helping to kick start the Forums and Artist sections with ADD bands and links.
    Greg Rolfes for some of the artwork on the site.
    Midihead for the original Electrogarden concept, flash elements and artwork.
    Steve, Chris, and Bill for everything - which allowed the site to stay online for this long at such a financial loss.
    All of the Electrogarden members, artists, and DJ's that have kept the site so active and vibrant with all that is Electronic Music.

    Thank you.

    Yikes, I go away for a couple days and decide to check in on a borrowed computer for a little while and get this! I'd contribute money to keep this site going too.

    I would donate money if I had a job.....with this many creative brains you would think we would be able to come up with some sort of brilliant moneymaking scheme to keep this site up. Without Ads. Without crazy fees. Maybe a tune posting fee? How much money do they need? I wish they had said in the email. .....sad news...we need this forum and this community.

    I can't believe this. I just got here... and it's leaving me. If we can't get it to stay running, I hope another great place arrives.

    Hi gang, Craig here ....

    We will be hosting a forum very similiar to that here at the EGN at our new website going on line on or about jan 1 at http://www.kissmyasterixrecords.com ....

    I would like to thank all of you for your support here at the EGN over the last 2 years. I would like to thank the owners of the EGN for the opportunity to be so involved in the site and for the opportunity to interview so many outstanding artists. I will be sad to see the site go, but sometimes things must just pass away.

    yeah if there were something that couldve been done it would have been considered, and what is still possible sound like is still going to be considered...but it the internet so it not like ppl are really going anywhere, they will just scatter and relocated. the trick is to get everyone familiar to congregate to a new location. and to that itll take sometime and contacts (via email)

    One possibility no one has mentioned yet:

    How about moving over to synthpop.net? They have a lot of forums active on there already, and it looks like a fairly decent site at that?

    I am going to miss the garden tho, it's been like a home for me for the last two years. There has to be a way we can keep this thing going.

    Oh no...I just got this e-mail too and it ruined my day... :cry: ...More than half of the music I now listen to I discovered through EGN...
    I really hope the community won't scatter after EGN closes down. I've grown so fond of u ppl...

    Does synthpop.net have other types of music? I'm into too many types to just go with synthpop...

    hey gang,
    wow... this is really sad news. what a bummer. I hope we can all hook up again on another forum like synthpop.net or on craigs' site. I would hate to lose contact with all you kick ass people.

    I have had the best time here meeting and sharing thoughts with all of you and would like to thank you all for being great online buddies to me.

    I'd also like to thank the admins' at egn for providing us all with a great outlet for bands to promote, share music, and discuss electronic music.

    in the mean time, please feel free to keep in touch with me via email: electroswank@bimfactor.com until we all reconverge on another forum some day soon.

    take care, I'll miss you guys

    I'm sad that I never got to know you people properly
    I say we all take over the Scanlinez forum. It's really dead and ruled only by three members. Me not being one of them
    Argh it burns!
