It is such a shame to see the forum has ground to a stop. Is it because people have moved on, busy with other things, the lack of interest in the artist, the lack of new news?

What ever the case may be, this use to be such a busy forum. Sad to see it so deserted (Deserted Palace)

What now?

I think it's a combination of all those things Jon.
And I think more people are using Facebook & don't bother much with forums.
The forum I created for our paranormal group is quite active but it's mainly just mods and admins posting,and our own offtopic section is the most popular,our what did you last watch on TV/DVD is our most active topic.
I expect when/if the new album is released there will be a flurry of activity.
If you look at the Space of freedom forum,that has been almost dead for a while now.
Just an idea as our Facebook page is very active,what about a Blah Blah Cafe Facebook page & link it to the forum ??

It is a great idea, Adam. :D

But personally, there are too many Jarre Fan pages on Facebook. Mine included. I try to even it out between myself and my master. :mrgreen:

The facebook pages are just horrible. Non-stop posting of JMJ videos we already know for years. And that's it. Seriously, what is that?

Or someone posts tracks like Vangelis' Metallic Rain which is credited to JMJ on youtube. When people try to explain it's not JMJ the person reacts we are crazy.

Avoid these groups, that's my advice.

I check the forum everyday guys. But lack of news means i just have a quick look through the posts to see whats happening. Im not a huge facebook fan. I tweet a couple of people who like Jarre's music what album or tracks i listen too but thats about it.

It's just not as it used to be for me either, but the same goes for a lot of other things aswell. I cannot remember when I last had my synths turned on. Perhaps it's just because I now adays have other "practical" things to think about. I kind of miss the teenage and single life (though i prefer to be in a relationship) but the time I had to practice hobbies has just disappeared. I need to find the balance between standard life and my own needs. Apparently it works for some, so why not for me? :wink:

Well, I'm still alive also.
It's just that I have a busy life and there's basically nothing that attracts my attention in the JMJ world. There's no news, only speculations; JMJ does ramble on and on about plans that never get realized and stuff. So, meh. There's that.
