    Fundraiser: New Trancefix home?


    Hello everyone,


    As you are all well aware of by now, TranceFix is shutting down.

    For many of us it has been the gateway to the trance scene and some of us have even made new friends through live events or just by regular chatting in various threads. This doesn't have to be the end of it though; We want to continue the journey on a new forum, but we need your help with that.

    We humbly ask for your donations to help us buy new forum-software and what not. Any donations of any sizes would mean a ton - and even if you can't donate, spread the word instead! Share this with every trance-fan you know. All money raised will be used for our new community.

    This link leads to the fundraiser-page

    On behalf of everyone involved,

    Thank you

    Update May 23th

    Creating a new trance forum and community
    Our current website Trancefix.nl - one of the best and biggest online trance communities on the web - is having to close. However, the community has come together and decided to continue the legacy, focusing on building a new forum. With new technology, great functionality and the same quality of music sharing and discussion we’ve known for 15 years.

This fundraiser is to help make a new Trance community a reality. 


    Goal - €1000


    Amazing guys and girls. We reached our goal in just 4 days! Thanks to everyone who contributed. This will help massively to the costs that come with building, designing and hosting the website. Here’s how we will spend the money:

    - Purchasing XenoForo software

    - Designing the site (buying templates, buying extra functionality)
    - Hosting and server costs
    - Migrating the old forum into the new (as best as possible)
    - Cover future costs for webhosting etc.


    Migration Update
    Migrating the old forum data into the new may be possible, however the process has requirements that may be out of our hands. That being said we will try everything we can to make it happen and persevere the legacy of the old site. 




    Stretch Goal - €1500
    This goal is for extra funding to help build the website. We can hire a company who specialises with XenoForo to build our website exactly how we want it and designed very well. This will not only speed up the development of the process, but also likely yield a more quality and tailored results. Any left over costs will go back into hosting and keeping the forum alive.

    Disclaimer


    If (for whatever reason) do not build a new forum we will activate Gofundme’s refund functionality and return all your money.


    Thank you,

    Stay safe and healthy,
    The Trancefix team

    Will donate tonight! I'm more of a silent viewer of the forum, but it's too precious to let it fade away like that.

    Fair questions mate.

    If the campaign is not succesful, we can manually return all donations. And there's also a 30-day limit. We have to withdraw the money from the campaign to one of our bankaccounts within 30 days. If we don't do that, the campaign is automatically canceled and all donations are returned.

    So, within those 30 days it should be clear for us, wether it's a success (and withdraw it, and use it), or cancel it and all donations get returned.

    But besides the regular campagain: if we do withdraw the money, but somehow we won't use it... we can still just transfer money back to you. I mean, if you trust the Trancefix crew of course. Currently only Hensmon, Katadunkass and myself have access to it. The group will stay small and only for trustworthy Trancefix crew members.

    First focus is on those 30 days of course. That should be plenty to make conclusions on a next step.

    I realize this thing is about real money. That's why we're going to be as transparant as we can be about this.

    Was just calculating out loud yesterday on Discord, all-inclusive (so all the features) XenForo (forum software) license for 2 years is around 500$. I assume server and domain costs aren't as high, so I figure the forum will be (financially) safe for around 2 years if we meet our goal.

    Your name sounds so familiar to me. But you only have a couple of posts here. Not sure if recognize it from just here.

    Were you active on trance.nu in the past?

    Will be donating guys - are you aiming to keep all the threads and posts from here? That is my main concern.

    Of course that's everyone's wish. But we can't guarantee that will happen.

    From what I understand so far: the current forum is vBulletin software. XenForo has experience with transferring old vBulletin-forums into a new one from their own. So it might be possible.

    However I don't know what the endresult will be. I don't know if the (sub)forums itself will be exactly the same, filled with old replies, or that it will be some sort of archive, visible in a different way (which would still be better than nothing I suppose).

    To be honest some of the subforums could easily be removed anyway, as some aren't used at all.
