Amen and ditto

You could take things at face value and come to the conclusion that everyone has disappeared and yes, a lot of people have gone.

However, I'm sure I'm not the only one who lurks here from time to time.

I joined almost ten years ago and even with this post, I've still only posted less than 50 times (I believe) in that decade.

According to stats, I haven't logged in since last July, posted since last March and before that, since 2014.
But I know I've visited many times without logging in and even though I rarely have anything to say, this site is a joy to have available.

Of course I am sad that Alizee has not released a new album and I was gutted when her Blonde tour got cancelled (meaning I will probably never get to see her in real life), but this site is the last 'thing' of Alizee that someone like myself has to hold on to.

It's wonderful. Like a time capsule with many of our old posts, in some cases (I believe) up to 500(?!).

You can relive the wonderful early years of this site, when so many people posted and often and that initial joy (and shortly thereafter, lets be honest, obsession (at least for a good couple of years or so)) of Alizee was capturing so many new people.

Even modern social media used by Alizee directly; Facebook / Twitter etc, will never provide the same experience as this site.

I do not care for modern social media (and I never cared for Alizee Forum (maybe it was just too bright / white - the dark and red makes this place like a secret little cave, a hidden gem of Alizeeness)). THIS is my Alizee site. (So wonderful that the layout has barely changed. Guess what? I don't like change! This site is like going back in time - such a joy!)

I believe a guy called Brad started this site (apologies if I am incorrect), so I would like to say thank you to Brad for starting this site.

I would also like to say a big thank you to Scruffydog. Scruffy, I don't think we have messaged privately since the very early years and I haven't been particularly vocal on this forum even during the peak years.

Nonetheless, I think we can all acknowledge the massive contribution you have made over the years and I would say you have kept this site alive in recent years, so THANK YOU!

I don't know if there are any other long term lurkers, including those who used to post frequently, but if there are, maybe post that you still visit from time to time.

For the administrators who may start to think the site is dead / dying, please hold on for as long as you can. I / We need this site.

From 'Moi Alizee US' to 'Alizee America', some of us are still here... this is our Alizee fix.
Hear hear sir!!!

Amen to that

I remember reading about this happening to you and others when I was lurking around the site before joining in 2009, and it broke my heart.

Hear hear sir!!!!!!! Please let's do something about the home page! The intro hasn't been changed in 5 years and the banner in 3 or 4! As for changing the look of the site itself, I'm with Daniel1985, it looks fine. It just needs to be updated.

Maybe even she would show up herself . Or better yet if 10-15 of us pitched in we could fly her over and put her up for a weekend . Even plan it for when she does come to visit . Yeah yeah yeah i know privacy , vacation with fans blah blah blah , yadda yadda yadda . dont know til ya ask and to have her spend a couple few hours doing a meet and greet isn't such a far fetched idea cuz she does it all the time . maybe even make it a charitable cause to entice her over , anyways . . in case no one toldja's yet today i love love you and hugz .


I've had the very great pleasure of hanging out with Ray a couple of times and it was awesome hanging out with another member of the forum. The problem with hanging out with more than a handful of people is that the members are spread all over the US and the world. Ray and I are lucky living relatively near one another in the DMV area, but MerciAlizée is in India, others like Lucas in Slovakia, Un-rêve and Junkmale in the UK, just a handful of examples of our international members I'd want to invite.

Fortunately if we can get over the mental obstacle of distance, with today's technology we can live stream such an event or create a hashtag to easily find pictures and videos of the event. We could have simultaneous regional get togethers, #AlizeeEast #AlizeeWest for example. I'm sure such ideas have been suggested before, maybe even by me, but it's 2017 now, and there are so many more ways to connect. We really could, give it a try?

Is this a kind of April's fools?

No.....it seemed to evolve out of the fact that Alizee Forum was shutting down and the two sites got confused. I certainly don't see any signs of this site shutting down any time soon, at least not if I can help it.
