***WARNING***

THE REGISTRATION FOR JPOPASIA IS DUE TO EXPIRE OCTOBER 2021, AND WITH NOBODY RUNNING THIS PLACE ANY MORE IT WILL LIKELY BE SHUT DOWN (LIKE WHAT HAPPENED WITH VEEHD).

I'VE CREATED A FALLBACK LOCATION FOR FANS TO GATHER AT WHEN IT DOES - 

https://takebacktheworld.freeforums.net/board/8/asian-music-charts

And if you're one of those who is still adding lyrics, in addition to putting them on the artist/video page consider ALSO posting them in this pre-existing forum topic:

https://www.jpopasia.com/forums/posts/favorite-lyrics/?topics_id=14130

Doing so will allow me to rescue them all at once before the site shuts down (I have a program that lets me save multiple web pages into a single file). Your hard work shouldn't be lost just because the site dies.

    Hi, sorry random, but I saw some of your wallposts about the site becoming ineffective in October and since I used to be very active member from before all the updates I am sad to hear this news. 

    It's very sad to hear, but do you happen to know what will happen to all the music info on the site and so on?

    It will be lost. If the site was laid out a  little differently, I could save the info all at once into a multi-page PDF... but as it is I would have to save each individual entry separately.

    I see that’s very unfortunate 

    I guess I’ll try to enjoy the site while it’s still up and save the little bit of stuffI can tysm for the info and such!

    His name is Eric Calderone, and he specializes in doing metal versions of other songs.

    Check out his version of "Godzilla's theme", it has some real kick to it and really fits the direction Toho's taken the big guy.

    I was actually thinking of trying to get control of the place, to pay the hosting fee and have other members that might still be around help to rebuild it...

    Unfortunately, most people these days are too lazy and selfish to help keep things going.

    Yeah, it's true! But why do you think the moderator doesn't anything? You think he don't want to own this place anymore? I think maybe he works and don't have time.

    Either way though, the end result is the same - a mostly non-functional site that will likely disappear when the registration expires. :(

    Hey, I am fully aware about the bad situation on this site, but do you know of any other sites for Japanese music fans? I would love to contribute. Thanks

    I was not aware of how bad the situation was on the site - I just wrote up a long message on the "contact" page so as to reach some kind of admin, only to receive no confirmation that the message even left the box. No "thank you for you message" pop-up or anything! Feelin super frustrated.

    I know - others have tried the contact page as well, and none of them got any response or saw any sign that the message was even read/acted on.

    It's really sad, because from what I've heard and seen this place USED to be a truly great site for fans of Asian music. Unfortunately it's now become nothing more than a source for ad revenue with no real benefit for the fans. And because the owner chose to hide behind an anonymous registration and "use" someone else's internet bandwidth, there's not even a way to find out whether they're even still alive.

    IF I can gather together enough 'real' fans (as opposed to all the bots signing up lately), I'm considering an attempt to take over so WE (all of us) can at least try to restore the site to it's former glory. A lot of true fans have put a great deal of effort into this place - adding videos, lyrics, news, etc - and it would be a shame if all their work were lost. :(

    I have decided to move to Genius,com . The Japanese community over there seems pretty cool, and while the website isn't ideal for romanized lyrics, I hear there is stuff in the works to make it easier.

    Actually, I Only signed up here after getting a number of complaints of fraud. My Information is based on research (checking the forum, comparing posts with users and when they've last logged in, and so forth). I still don't know whether the owner just walked away or if he/she died or what. I DID run some IP#s to try and locate them, and was somewhat surprised to find they all traced back to Smithville elementary school near Atlantic City, NJ.

    It's a shame that this site has gone down so badly - from what I've seen it USED to be a great place.

    Unfortunately, yes. 

    Many of the features no longer work, and there is nobody left with the ability to do even simple things like suspending the large numbers of spambots being signed up to the site. 

    I've been trying to find people in the relevant countries who could provide the weekly chart rankings so that I could provide them for the fans, but so far have had no luck.

    That's pretty sad, considering this is the largest website for fans of JPOP and JROCK. Other websites are all focused on western music or Korean music (sometimes Chinese music). Japanese music gets often forgotten and ignored.
    The work the community has put on this website over the years shouldn't be throwed in the dump.

    I'm still trying to find out whether the owner ran this on his own server, or if they rented server space from some company.

    If it's on a rented server, it MIGHT just be possible to buy the registration when it expires and try rebuilding the site to it's former glory.
