    Closing of TranceFix.nl

    After being close to 15 years on this adventure, it's time to say goodbye. What began as a passion project (vocal trance lyric website) 15 years ago, evolved into an amazing community with trance lovers from all around the globe.
    It is true what they say, (trance) music brings people together. I have met many great people during this journey.


    I'd like to thank everyone who contributed, especially the TranceFix crew - you know who you are .


    Perhaps we will meet again someday, stay safe, be healthy; thank you very much and good-bye.


    Wesley

    What's the reason?
    The forums are still going strong!
    This is the only proper trance forum ALIVE at the moment. I don't understand...

    Such a shame, even though that there isn't so much activity recently, it's still a place I visit daily. What is the reason behind this decision? Are you guys unwilling to pass the site to any trusted and close member who can keep it running? Btw Trance.nu was closed but kept online for years and years. I found so much golden conversations there, while here you want to destroy everything and delete all the backup so soon. What is the reason behind this? How expensive it to keep the site running? Like that you destroy the whole community's memories in a month.

    Shame. Really shame. I have seen so many great communities closing, but it doesn't make any sense here, like it didn't for FTN.

    Why? This is so dissapointing. Where to have discussions of new tracks and classics?

    Some producers out there are gonna be real happy.

    The bigger question is, will we continue this, just on another platform or not? Discord and Reddit seem like viable options, even if they aren't the same thing. Our WhatsApp group is just not suitable for anything other than banter, really.

    Other thing - will the front page be shut down as well?

    Again, thanks for keeping it alive, Wesley! This wouldn't have been possible without your 15 years of dedication.

    Also, would be cool if the site went out on its 15th birthday.

    Sad to hear, visited daily to check new releases and post my opinion every now and then.

    Things always have an end and I am sure there is a good reason for it. It was nice being part of it, after trance.nu, clubcharts and tranceaddict.

    I'm sure it's more than that. From a developer's perspective, it's not easy to keep it up as something that's not even a side-gig but an expense. I haven't had a forum myself, but that's what's actually keeping me. I (thought I) had great ideas... But you can't do everything on your own.

    And let's be real here, the forum isn't growing in users or activity. The Front Page (and Upcoming Releases section) are run by people who are probably paid by the labels to spread out promos. Can't tell you how many people aren't here anymore, that used to be active when I joined the forum. I feel there's less of us regulars. Aside from the fact that I'm sad about this, I've also thought about leaving this place a couple of times.

    This was inevitable, really. It would've died slowly, over a few more years.
