Default [False Alarm] Alizée Forum has closed

EDIT - It re-opened temporarily

Sad news in Alizée-land today, the owner of Alizée Forum has closed the site.

I don't know all the history of the Alizée fan forums, but I have visited there daily to see other views. It's a big loss to the fan community and I'm sorry to see it go.

Dear Alizee Fans,
I really wanna put this short. As you know I founded this forum and the website long long ago. In 2012. It was a great success and many people loved it and still do. But theres a point in life that I can not put enough time into this piece of hard work and decided to close it. Thanks to all the fans and friends I met! Writing this makes me sad in a way. But life goes on. Thanks to all of you!

For now, you can dicuss and get the latest information about Alizee on our Facebook Page.

If you are interested in this domain, forum etc, feel free to contact me as I will be selling it all. The forum is not deleted at all, its kept in a safe place. So do not worry.

Contact Info: webmaster AT alizee - forum DOT com

Later, Riccardo

Like you I visited it weekly and have noticed over the last few months that things were slowing down on the forum. It is always sad that one of Alizée's fan sites decides to call it quits. Hopefully one of their members will take over and bring it back to its glory days.

Alizée Forum has been a part of my life almost as long as Alizée has. I really dunno what to say, but I will really miss that place.

Now if we could get someone to buy the domain and keep the forum running, that would be great.

I had such a nice Crime Show Friday yesterday and then one of my friends texted me that the forum has closed. What a great way to start the weekend... Well sure it was a bit calm lately but it's also summer, Alizée was on holiday too... sure, there were a lot more people years ago. But it had been like this for a while already and it never was the big deal.

What I don't like about this is the way all this happened. I mean yesterday Riccardo wrote something on facebook that he wanted to sell the place (but he didn't say anything about this in the forum itself... not everyone checks fb daily! I only read the update by accident) and suddenly he closes it down? Without warning?

Sure it's expensive. I understand that. But I just don't like this from-one-day-to-the-next thing.

Well I'm currently trying to sort my Alizée collection from the past few years ... so now the topics are all gone that's going to be fun...

I just feel like someone just kicked me out of my home and now I don't know where to go.

P. S. RMJ opened a new forum here: http://www.alizeeart.com/forums/

Of course that's really unfortunate for Alizee as well as the members of AF. I've posted over there numerous times in the past and I've even met some of their members in Paris. Hopefully someone will come forward and takeover the forum.

I wonder if they can carry on the same type of chat on Facebook that they did in the forum. If Facebook can't meet their demands, hopefully they will know they are more than welcome to come here.

I believe that in addition to the English section, they had sections for French and German speaking members. Of course French speaking members will be able to go elsewhere, but I'm wondering if their German speaking fans have any place else to go?

We've been lucky that Ben has kept this forum running over the years. We did make some changes a while back to reduce the operating costs and some current members have helped to take care of the smaller expenses that are left so hopefully this forum is in good shape for the time being.

ah sorry I wasn't talking about this collection I was talking about all the files on my PC... I have no idea why I wrote collection instead of files. But well the forum is back for now.

I fear the main problem is that we don't have a lot of sponsors and Riccardo has to pay it all alone and it's getting to expensive.
