Archefluxx Been speculation about USH shutting down

Looks like its happened looking at Tweets about it.
Vladel total shocker to be honest
e-lucid yup, gone.. :(
Wilky Shit, where's it gone?
_Jay_ Hadn't heard anything about that, but yeah, looks like it. 404 error.



e-lucid it's been shut down by the owner

Any particular reason? And who was the owner, out of interest?
NekoShuffle You know what that means...how long is it before we're flooded by USH's members. Good thing? Bad thing? If this place gets as bad as USH I'm out of here. No disrespects to anyone, we have our controversial opinions but I don't think we held a candle to USH for winding up producers and DJs. I'd like to think we're sensible and troll-free enough for DJs and Producers to look at for feedback and constructive criticism as opposed to just "THE NEW STUFF SUCKS" or whatever.

I used to be one of the main ones for winding people up on ush... I still do it now but on Facebook... Go on bunters page.. He ****in loves it

Shame ush has gone as I was starting to use it again.. Oh well maybe Paul what himself over the though of me coming back ;)
djDMS There was a lot worse than you to worry about Wilky! Paul had threatened it before so surely was going to be a matter of time until it happened. Pity cos despite the 'decline' there were still a lot of properly funny people there.
Archefluxx Things seemed to fall apart in the last week. Moderators had a moderation war, deleting each others threads and arguing about whos the biggest troll.

I thought it was quite hilarious!
_Jay_ Ha ha!

I'm still waiting for Silver to promote me to Mod. Want my powers.
The Doc thats a shame! USH was a great place for id's, there was always someone on there who would know a track!
wong lol @ wilky thinkin hes important
wong skyee will get the blame more than anyone

whittle1 Posted a few times on there... nowhere near as good as it is on here though.
I hope most of their members dont show up on here because most of them were intolerable.
The majority of DJ's used to give their input directly to the site so Silver should seize this opportunity.
wong nah forums are struggling too much theses days mate which is a big shame. it all happens on facebook n twitter . just isnt the same. its crap
The Doc There are currently 39,357 members on here! (a lot also used USH) lets see how many it increases by in a months time! Also just noticed todays member of the day is a certain DJ Kurt! (its started already lol)
Cubeforce Ush needed moderators badly, they didn't have any (decent ones anyway) so trolls ruined every single thread that had anything to do with UK hardcore. So.. how strict are mods here? :P
m0nst3r yet out of those 39,357...how many actually post?
like 20 of us?

Not very, but they don't need to be. Everyone sucks each other off and plays nice.
NekoShuffle I only went downstairs to make a sandwich and we already have Cubehard and a bunch of people I don't recognise in the thread!

Oh EDIT it's Cube...force? Is that the same person?

If you ask Silver nicely he might be able to actually tell you that...he might be able to search by sex.

I hope that the better elements of Ush join us. We like a good drama, but at the same time we can talk about hardcore seriously and the community is generally friendly to each other.
D-tor In this topic already I'm seeing new screen names. Let's see how this plays out.

djDMS Most on USH weren't to interested in this site (for no particular reason) for years, so i doubt much different will happen now. Hardly likely to be a mass influx of knobheads now seeing as the non-hardcore sections there were much busier.

oh god that arsehole lol. He's one of the ones that made it unbearable to even post on that site. I know I won't miss it, but apparently it was good at one point. And as far as mods go, the ones here don't do much b/c they don't need to do much. Once someone's posts get deleted for a good reason, or someone gets banned, we pretty much keep well in order after that.

except Wilky he'll always be a douche. and lol @ Wong's post about wilky. he always thinks he has some sort of godgiven rights on here or something.
NekoShuffle Is Wilky a troll here too? I thought he was just a bit slow on the uptake, have I been being trolled all this time??

hehe it's already the after death of ush btw I was an original usher... Oldskool of 2003
ultraskool I thought Mr Anabolic Frolic was the owner of USH.net ? i used to check that website out ages ago. it's a North American hardcore site right?

No that's http://www.hulla.info which is pretty much dead these days too
Simon I never really liked USH, I was never elite enough to be there.
Samination Man I go away to sleep, and USH gets deleted in the meantime?

with all the whiners and haters (I'm partial of both), I guess it was for the better that USH finally closed down as no real artists used it. But I always knew somwhere that USH would go down before any Raver Baby mp3s (except for Al Storms) would hit the internet! Take that d2kx :P

I don't think any of the USHers will come here, as the like older Hardcore, and this forum is mostly about new.

seriously? he came across as one of the sensible ones to me. and bloody good at tune ids too
Samination funny how Waffle was what kept it alive for so long, and what finally killed it :P

But Sykee was a ****ing joke. Everyone made a joke of him on there anyways.
I never really read any of his posts, but they where all BNP influenced, and I'm
pretty sure encouraging racsism was against the EULA. And then he started
writting it was his full human right to post about anything. Problem is, USH, like
HappyHardcore.com, are PRIVATE forums, which means the owner can put any
rules up (or do anything he likes), as long as he does not break the law of the
server's location (so, no more talking about breaking copyright laws Wilky! or
you will get a free(?) trip to an Japanese prison!).

What got me mostly pissed off tho, was in the astra mod, where SYKEE proclaimed
that the people on USH where taking him too seriously. Too Seriously? He just made
all his posts and religious/political stand a joke itself. If you are not serious, then you
should not be posting around your believes.
Triquatra well, I think its a shame, ush was the first forum i signed up to (was in secondary school in 98) didn't post much...can't really remember how i ended up on this one instead

i'm sure it'll be back in some form...wonder how many eyes are watching that domain name...hmmmm

stray My forum is www.freeformforum.net, Hardcore producer is a site that focuses on the production side of Hardcore. HP was having a few issues but seems to be running OK now, although they are doing a major update atm, may turn into a general production forum rather than a Hardcore one when they relaunch.
d2kx Ush was a place full of hate, and it got worse and worse over the last weeks and months.

my name Wilky also was filtered in the forum software so everytime someone typed wilky it would post some sad wannabe instead haha on top of that every post i made it came up with This post was made by Spunk Licker who is

lol he is correct on this one as I figured out that he posted pretty much the same on both this forum and ush as well. When I made a post with "wilky" it changed to something, not sure if it was "some sad wannabe". I changed wilky somehow so it can show.

as far as Traffic Cone goes, he was informative, and at the same time he was a complete douchebag too. He spent most of the time being the latter.

Just checked the freeformforum.net and yup I see a few already there. Funny they don't seem to take a liking to you Olly lol
wong yeah ive notice olly aint very well liked aswell. not sure why but there u go

They would praise big-name producers on their work, but when the whole Kevin Energy with the emails to Vladel happened, they were very quick to be complete asses to Kevin. Same thing happened when Joey Riot, Kurt, & Sharkey challenged the opinions of a few members on there. There were nothing but fcuking nutjobs on that site towards the end.

He's actually really cool. His posts on there aren't a good representation of anything really. And there is no way most of the members would come to this forum, it's the last kind of place they would want to come. Apart from the minority who actually have a non-cynical interest in current Hardcore. If people from ush wanted to post here they already would, that's why they posted on ush and not here. Although a few posted on both like wong etc (and myself to some extent).

_Jay_ Well, I don't have kids exactly, but I was just trying to say that I was kidding as well.

On reflection, should have just said the word kidding.

I get it now *hides back under rock*
kernowbeat so chuffed ush is gone!!! for a hardcore forum it was so negative...
Bonkers4Life I think there should be a section in the forum open to only the USH members, while everything is locked for them.

I know its impossible, but its a good idea no?

it's possible, although it's a lot of work for the mods though, especially since the few that we have aren't able to be on here as much as they used to.

and lol there u go wilky thinking you own this place. When you actually donate some $$$ into this site, then you'll be able to claim some ownership to it.

and technoshit you're a real dick go ruin another forum.
Vladel To be honest i don't think most of the USH boys are all that bad. I spent some time over there and i think the major problem is how a thread diverts off from what it was about to utter rubbish. I don't think i saw that much of what i would consider trolling! When GT5 came out i was accused of trolling when i said it was s*** and i don't consider that trolling. Another forum i am on i saw proper trolling for sure. A friend of mine attacked every post this guy made, made him cry and complain and eventually sent him old man gay porn in private messages.

That's exactly what I did with my site (well, i didn't ban them from other parts). UI think USH in general had a worse rep than it actually deserved, was a good place for open discussion and the guys there spoke what they felt. Yea, fair bit of abuse there but you can't write off a whole site just cos people don't agree. So I set up a no holds barred section of my forum so they have somewhere to go :)

Audio Warfare Yeah I never found Ush that bad tbh, was some decent people on there. Mind I've not really been on there much in the last couple of years so can't speak for recent times. I do use Squatjuice as well though so nothing else ever seems quite as bad for trolls etc. :P

I've been visiting this site since late 04 or 05. I didn't sign up until 2010. I didn't start posting until last month. What you said about your 12 post is ridiculous.
Also the statement I quoted from you is ridiculous. I'm on my knees in front of Hardbeats and not no hixxy or gam gam. But that's because its the music I actually like.

What's wrong with Fracus? He has quality tunes and made sure I got my HU5 shipped to North America with a very fair price.

I never liked USH personally unless I wanted a good laugh. I come here when I wanted to see a serious conversation with people who actually have opinions on the music I love.
Not a bunch of no-brain monkeys mocking the music or just saying complete idiotic things.

silver Every site has its own vibe and users, also depends on the mod policy, I was surprised to see ush.net go, it was the longest running hardcore site out there and I talked Paul from the site a few times. I don't know the reasons why it shutdown, I'm guessing real life and work made it hard to run the site. I run a few sites (for work) and every single site in the world is essentially losing traffic to facebook and twitter, might be another factor.

Ush users are welcome here they dont need to be locked down or anything, just follow the rules the main one being no personal attacks on people and no hate speech.

If you don't like hardcore or don't like this site you don't need to post.

Yes, though they arent all migrating. The site probably had 50 regulars and maybe a couple hundred occassional posters/lurkers. Not so disimilar to this site

A bit of both. There are a lot of elitist pricks on USH and flat out mongs, but there are a lot of very knowledgeable and insightful members too. Probably more of the former though unfortunately.
Craigavon raver Didn't really go on ush that much but went on it a few times and joined the forums in 2009 but only made about 30 posts or so, but don't really want to see hardcore sites closing down as there doesn't seem to be to many about

Samination an expunge of the inactive accounts would reveal that barely 20k of them have been online for the past 4 years -.-
FingazMc I always saw USH as basically a typical internet forum. Hate, hate and more hate. Here there's always been a reasonable amount of discussion and debate. Although I have to admit they were amazing for ID'ing tunes so I hope some of those guys come over here...

This is the guy. He gets it.
Archefluxx Continued from the last thread,

The place did become just somewhere to piss people off. Serious discussion was diluted by pointless posts.

Some ongoing threads were good though. The Raver Baby watch thread was a good concept. Looking at particular activity in areas could stimulate discussion here I reckon.
ponder The thing with USH is that people will always remember what it became, rather than what it used to be. Up until around 2005 it was the greatest Hardcore forum around, bar none, and those days will never be re-created by any other forum. I mean, how many websites can generate meet-ups at raves of 100+ people? Actual people at actual raves, not keyboard warriors behind their computers slagging everything off.

As a DJ, producer and promoter, it was integral to launching my career (along with a bit of 'right place, right time... with records' at Raindance, admittedly). As a site and forum it gave me a platform and a fanbase, not to mention that Elation wouldn't have existed without it (we all met through USH).

It tailed off in the last few years for a number of reasons;
The perception that it was a forum full of haters, perpetrated publicly by a certain well-known MC.
Lack of new blood on the forum, meaning that the ratio of people who like hardcore vs people who no longer like hardcore swung too far the wrong way.
Certain negative members shouting louder than the more reasoned members, giving the impression that it was a far worse forum than it actually was.
Fake accounts and trolls, and the lack of moderation of these.

Overall, it's probably best that it went when it did, while us original members still have fond memories of the halcyon days. For those of you that entered the 'scene' during the latter days of USH (from say, 2008 onwards), then I totally understand your feelings towards the site, but I can honestly say that from 1999-2005, it was the best Hardcore website of all time, and always will be. A place where I made loads of friends - some close, some who have drifted, have had some genuinely hilarious moments, and discovered a hell of a lot of amazing music.

In that respect, it'll never be rivalled.
Thumpa Agree wholeheartedly with Ponder, people who don't know what it was like before 2005/6 really missed out, the place was vibrant, bursting with energy and discussion and loads of amazing banter and blazing of absolute dickheads, mostly on my part! I miss the shits and giggles...

I think the site peaked around 2002-2004, they were magical times! Its a shame no other site has taken over or come close in terms of discussion, information, passion and ideas. Going to those Slammin, HH, Uproar events at the Sanctuary and literally meeting 100+ people in one night was great and I made some amazing lifelong friends through that site.

RIP Ush! :(

I'd like to think we're sensible and troll-free enough for DJs and Producers to look at for feedback and constructive criticism as opposed to just "THE NEW STUFF SUCKS" or whatever.



This is why i like HHC for critisism instead of any other EDM site. This includes Lolli.org which is the site for local EDM related stuff in Pittsburgh (Where I'm from).
