All that to say: the redirect doesn't work anymore.


Yeah, like I said above, it's really sad

The redirect was likely only for when we still had the old domain name, but now that we don't, the original hosts changed the site so there's no redirect.

Correct. The domain owner pointed fretsonfire.net to a place we can't access so we can't setup any redirects on there anymore. Like nwru said, it was expected even if we hoped it would be a bit longer before the old domain's owner "kicked us out". But we worked hard with nwru (and you guys!) to make sure that we would still come up strong in Google results and I believe we did a decent job on that :thumbup:

If you notice any broken links to the old place we'd appreciate if you fixed it if you can or just bring it to our attention so maybe we can try and do it.

Thanks!

Hi.

Thanks for this news. I changed links in the FoFiX project (github & doc) to match the right URL :).

Wow, I've been for 1 whole week believing that you guys force closed suddenly the site without any explanation. Thanks God it's just a domain movement.

Couldn't you guys send us an email so we know you changed the domain?

I tried to look for an explanation in Twitter or Facebook but couldn't find anything, so I though this was done forever. :unsure:

How did all the other people noticed the domain change?

I believe we sent emails a few weeks ago but they might have gone to spam or something.
I'll see if we can do a round 2!

Thank you. I receive email from here many times, saying that a topic I'm subscribed to has new replies, so I'm quite sure I didn't receive one.

OMG, guys, don't scare me like that. Just got a new set of drums, since I've trashed mine last year, got online to get a few songs and fretsonfire.net is just a huge ad.

Thanks for your hard work over the years, and best of luck with the new projects! A song database would be a dream come true, lol.

Cool, when I searched for fretsonfire.net and saw that the page didn't existed anymore my heart stopped beating for a second. I'm looking forward to the future of the page now, and I hope to get back to charting soon, I've been doing lots of stuff lately and I haven't got much time to chart stuff.

I tried sending a mail to all members but I'm not sure it went through. I know I received it but I'm somewhat at the beginning of that list so I don't know. I'd be curious to know if other people did. Funny how it's not as easy as you'd think to send emails to 150,000 recipients :tongue:

---- EDIT ----

Okay, I did a 2nd round and it seems it went through. I forgot to include an unsubscribe option to the mail. So if you want to be removed from that list simply reply to the mail and I will do that for you. Sorry about that.

Glad to see you back! :thumbup:
