Due to the success and constant growth of Korgforums, and unfortunately our ever growing demand on the servers resources, we regret to say that unless a solution is found to secure a dedicated server and support, the future doesn't look very good at all for our community.
Our host has been very good to us, but no more I'm afraid. We have greatly outgrown our community and the ideas of it being an unsupported free site.
As soon as we know more, you can find out by checking back here."
I really hope they will resume action soon, there are some real pros there, and that community enjoyed active participation and attention from Korg's development team in Italy.

It was/is a great site in EVERY sense of the word.
Downloads, Tips, Tricks, more subjects and sub forums then you can shake a stick at, and like it's been said - high up reps from Korg itself kept an eye on that forum listening closely to any requests and relevant topics that came up.

Thats great news Paolo, hope you guys can work something out..
For what its worth, even if Korg run it as an OFFICIAL forum, I can see no reason why it cannot remain independent. With everyone able to post INCLUDING Korg staff members who may have their own views on subjects.
All I would suggest is that an "Official" section be maintained along with the other sections so Korg have the space for company policy and announcements
I imagine it could work in a similar fashion to the Cakewalk Sonar forums, official but independent.
I suspect that maybe big daddy Korg himself stepped in to lend a financial hand but I could be wrong about that. The Forum is still independent from what it looks like but there may be more going on "behind" the scenes than you and I know about. Either way, it's a great Korg resource, and definitely kudos to all the Korg staff personnel that submit official Korg input on the Forums. >> Something that at Roland Clan rarely, if ever, happens.

Dedicated servers (plural)? For a forum? So again I ask: what numbers are we talking here in terms of data-storage and bandwidth?
