For a site that was wiped entirely a few months ago, I'd say it was doing pretty well.

But the team of site coders are piecing it back together, and hopefully they'll have the site as it was before too long. But new and improved!

I would say the forums are much more alive now than they were before the crash...

alright...i see. i just noticed everything looking scaled down. good to know there is still life in the tracking community. Well...the music download thread isn't so active. c'mon...check out my new music goddammit :!:


**edit: ok i checked out the music download session myself. judging from the song titles i guess i can see why it isn't so active. it's all so...contemporary. c'mon...where's the edge...the anger...the violence...
i mean yea it's...family friendly but still...

I participate on this forum as being a part of the tracking community in the first place. Promoting downloads of my works has a lower priority here.
Scaling down could also be translated as more dealing with the essential things.
About the contents of the download thread :
Enter a cd-shop. Check the number of dumb mainstream bullshit on the total available cd's. Probably 80 %.
Seek the gems I would say.

I don't know how this site used to be, but I think this one is heading in the right direction at least.

It is indeed. And how it used to be, as far as I know, is not much different from now.
Although there were about 17000 registered members then, only a few were active on the forum.
And the number of participants after recovering from the crash is not very different imo.

Good question. I checked the project and found the descriptions of the rules far too fuzzy.
To me, one voice is one sample, not some chord with other samples or whatever.
