To anyone interested in giving a hand, here's your chance!

I now have full access to [ rave.ca ] and it is my plan to relaunch it this year to the new scenes in Montreal and in the rest of the country.

To do this, I am building a team of people interested in giving some of their time and effort to manage our rave community's portal.

[ rave.ca ] and [ ravewave.com ] is one of the oldest and biggest remaining portal aimed at rave communities and you can help make it live on!

If interested, please send me a private message and we can discuss your skills and interests that would help make the site live again stronger than it ever was :D

We need help from anyone including:
- Web Developers
- Web Designers
- Server admins
- Forum/Communities Moderators
- Calendar Moderators
- Calendar Posters (Gathers nightlife events and post the calendar)
- Promoters (to promote the site at events, online, etc...)
- etc...
I'm feeling what what in da butt right now..

Yes!!!!

Great news :-D

I can be forum/communities moderator, I still visit the site frequently (one of the only). And you know trolls and drama will disappear once and for all with me, hehehe. But don't worry, I will not manage this like a military prison camp either :-P

What do you planning for the relaunch? New concepts?
I'm feeling back to college right now..

I truly wish this site would come back to life but AFAICT there's only 2 way to attract people to this site:
1) Have people find it when they're looking for a rave in Montreal and the other locations (Ottawa & Québec IIRC), or a community about it. That mean rank higher in the engine searches than other related sites. Including the dozens of bullshit sites out there, which are basically aggregator (not creating any content of their own).
2) Have a physical presence in the same places, so have the logo put on party flyers or have someone hand out something at the party.

But the biggest challenge is having people use & stay on this site. To make it so people are more interested in using this site than social media. I see this as an enormous challenge. This site was lucky enough that social medias didn't have a real presence after a few years of its existence; so it benefited to not having that extra competition (it still competed with other sites (as in having its own hosting, DB, code)). That level playing field, is what allow this site advantages amongst its peer to breakthrough, to shine.

Still the matter of fair competition, what I expressed is mostly to people of my age or a bit younger. Current mid-20s people probably had little experience of communities appropriating technologies themselves and when creating a new group, had always the reflex of using a social media to do so. I bet there's dozens of services or apps that cater to recreating most of what a site such as this has to offer but that a social media doesn't. So to people that see no benefit on having to use a site rather than just creating a group of their favorite social media, why would they bother asking their acquaintances to make an account on this site so they might share a common event, to signify their intent of presence?

This site would have to become so big that it would be easier so organizers or leading party-goers to create an event here in order to gauge the actual event attendance. I just don't see it happening from outside. I think the only chance of [ rave.ca ] able to get back some of its past activity is to cater to event organizers and in exchange to have some exclusivity; maybe an extra discount when people show attendance on this site, or get an extra promo mix, or a free sticker or something. To get the "I scratch your back, you scratch mine" mentality; so I think this site need to start scratching some backs in order to get some of its former vitality. Another way to do so would be to find very active people in the community that are willing to put extra effort on promoting this site.

I just don't see a regain in vibrance for this site without external factors, no matter how much more use friendly this site might become without having to resort to leeching on others site (like facebook did at first by asking ones email password to fetch all his/her contacts).

I'd like to help, but only if I see a real chance of success. You might want to split this thread to move posts like this to.

Talk about kicking a dead horse.

Besides, should not be run by someone running a for profit venture.
Not ethic, not called for, and seriously quite biased.

Jessie don't be a cunt ... This site was good to alot of people over the years.

Jesus H Christ, why the fuck am I even here for ?

Unless this site gets a mobile version and a lot of what Dyn-V said about social media, this void is going nowhere. The community is pretty much gone, raves non-existent and those who are here are out of curiosity.

Then there spam-tasting leeches like Seema here who's very existence on here shows a total lack of moderators.

Nothing is being done to fix this, no one is interested and frankly, no one cares.
I'm feeling o.o right now..

Ditto! I'm actually going to try and host the site from my home instead. I got a 1TB ssd and a nice computer to do it on. We shall see if it works. I don't want to lose all the info but I can save myself 3000$ a year doing that.

It was a fun ride for sure! Most of us are now 30-40 with kids and a career...

The electronic music scene is still going, they just dont post events on [ rave.ca ] anymore. The other social medias, like facebook took over.

Im still going to [ rave.ca ] sometimes, mostly to look at pictures from the party back in the days, so many good memories :-D

Funny thing, I just found today one of my co-worker at Rewire in 2005! (I met her a year ago, haha)

I don't see [ rave.ca ] as a tombstone but more like a monument about our past history.
