Subsonic Radio Might Be Down / Changes

Post by subsonic » Sep Thu 17, 2015 11:09 am

I bring some bad news, but potentially helps light a fire. First, as to not scare you, Subsonic Radio isn't going away.

After 8 years of a free stable co-located server, it's finally being removed. Unfortunately, this is happening on short notice. Our team is small, works on SR in our free time and busy with daily life. Additionally, SR has a lot of moving parts. As a result, Subsonic Radio might lose some of it's functionality within the next month. So, please bear with us and don't be too alarmed when you see strange things.

There is a silver lining. As I said above, SR has a lot of moving parts, I've been meaning to simplify things. For the past month or so, I've been trying to write some new features for the site. Among these features it simplifying how SR works. Losing the server presses me, and the team, to focus on finishing the features sooner than later. I'd love to talk about what these features entail. However, I'm known to take "longer" than expected and I don't want to get people's hopes up. :)

In summary, Subsonic Radio is here to stay. You might see some strange or missing functionality. New features are on the way.

Thank you for you continued support to keep this site alive!

I agree 100% Amy. I already lost one disney Web radio oand still miss it. I love the new home I've found on Subsonic, and would hate to see it disappear :shock:

If you all haven't yet, you might want to join our Facebook page. Even if you create an account just for that... it will provide a way to know what's going on if this site goes down. We all keep up with each other that way, although not by Subsonic nicknames. :) Find me on Facebook (Caryn Turrel) and let me know you want to be added, I'll either do it, or if I'm not able I'll make sure someone adds you. :)

I was just going to ask if this would affect the forums as well as the streaming. Sounds like it might.
Hoping to go back to the Magic soon.

Oh boy I haven't even considered that one day this radio/site might have to go down. :( That was a scary read! :lol: I've really taken this site and everybody's contributions for granted. :P But even though it won't be leaving, and I hope not for many years down the road, I'd really like to thank you all SO MUCH for what you guys do for us (and the users who help keep it alive!).

Appreciate the heads up!

:ccat: WHEW! I got a little nervous there for a moment. Thank you so much for all you do in making this a great site for us to all enjoy. All of you that work on Subsonic have no idea how much it means to us and how grateful we are that we can enjoy this slice of heaven during our otherwise hectic days/nights. Thanks for letting us benefit from your vision. Seriously, thank you Sub and Admin's, hosters, coders, contributors!!! :hatter_bounce:
