USH.NET killed off

Post by dj jedi » Wed Dec 07, 2011 9:47 am

Quite a big deal IMO, it was almost as old as this forum and one I've visited for over 10 years. But anyone else who used it will know that it had turned to complete shit over the last few years.

Seems to be the way things are going though - no need for forums with Facebook :(

Yeah i'm quite sad about this- i never contributed really, but was always good for a read (especially some of the scandal)

My fav story on there was about a female hardcore producer called Abeyance who was known to ermmmm give "favours" to get on in the scene.

Then the people on USH put up her pics that appeared in a porno, including one where she hadn't quite wiped her arse properly :lol:

Think guy just got sick of it, and like all forums it had quietened down a bit.

It was a 'new hardcore' forum but there were plenty of people on there that only liked old skool. That was its downfall really - imagine if nobody on here liked the music the site was based on anymore. It just became a free for all with constant slanging matches. So yes I guess Paul just thought there was no point to it.

Shame though, millions of posts of useful inorfmation lost. IMO he should reload a database back up from its heyday (2001-2002 or so) and then lock all the boards so it's just there for reference.

There was also a fair bit of antagonism between people on the board and the established producers. Shame as USH practically saved the more upfront hardcore scene in 2000.

to be fair though most new hardcore is shiiiiiiiiiite. Too many people trying to write stereotypical anthems.

Are we expecting an influx of ex-members?
