Unfortunately I do not have the resources (health and finances) to continue the roland-arranger.com project.

The website and forum will discontinue by the end of October 2017.

If anyone would like to acquire the operations (www domain and web application), please contact me..

Sad to hear.

Unfortunately, I do not have the technical skills to maintain the Joomla frame this forum runs under (in fact, I have no web skills whatsoever!), but if any of our members would like to step up if they have good web skills and help me maintain at least the forum, please leave a message here.

I am sure we all wish Søren all the best for the future, and offer him our deepest thanks for having dedicated himself for years (this site started out as the G70 User Forum way back when the G70 first came out!) to helping all Roland arranger users better understand and use our musical instruments, and providing a great site where we could discuss and critique Roland arrangers, share data and show off our results.

Our Tips and Trick section and many posts have shown many how to best use Roland's great arrangers, and to understand how best to utilize the direction Roland takes with arranger design. While they don't always beat the same path as Yamaha or Korg (who don't beat the same path as each other, much!), I believe that many have learned that a surprising amount of power hides under the hood of the Roland Arranger engine!

As Roland forge slowly ahead, so do we all. I wish all that have made this great community all the best for the future. Who knows?

Perhaps this is not the end... B)

Big thanks to Soren, and also to Diki for doing a LOT of hard work in the past few years particularly. I had hundreds of posts on the previous forum, but they got lost during change-over. But no matter, even between Roland arrangers, I still visited often.
If I were just a few younger, I'd love to have a part in keeping it going, but I'm doing well just to keep MYSELF going! ::)

There might be a chance to continue a forum on the domain. To continue the forum we need a web administrator to help keeping the forum update and the Joomla core patched. The web admin needs to know about Joomla, phpBB3 and needs to have all around knowledge about web programming and all around IT knowledge, e.g. usage of FTP clients, DB admin interface and stuff like that. Do we have a candidate in the user club community? If "yes", then we might be able to continue. If "no", it is probably a goodbye... Please look around to see if you can find a candidate.

Just a thought, but are there easier to administer forum programs out there that would put less hi-tech burdens on any future community administrator?

Yes, it would be nice to keep the data and framework we have, but I am sure the community would be willing to start from scratch if it were a choice between that and nothing...

Simplicity trumps features if it means forum survival....

If Søren wants to keep his privacy (the forum mail hasn't worked in a long time), you can send mail to me, felipe, and I will forward it...
