Yeah, unfortunately, Junkee have deleted the event listings. Not sure about the photo archives, though. Hopefully they're kicking about somewhere. :/

I found a heap of stuff buried in my forum profile settings stuff that let me access everything I've published, which I saved as PDFs that was after a lot of stuff had disappeared off the main page. Well before the complete redesign.

I really really hope they didn't just wipe everything, it'd be a damn shame to lose all that history. At the very least they could've warned people to save what they want.

I guess these things just die a natural death. With regionalized scenes, and most people plugged into various facebook groups, all the discussion of music and events is there.

Unfortunately it means that you do miss out on a lot of stuff, and can't have those really long music discussions. I'm actually surprised that ITM has all the EMC stuff going on - it's super top level industry stuff, and really cuts out the majority of dance music fans, DJs, and people putting on events, rave crews etc. It's kind of hard to have a community when a lot of the community isn't part of it. Is that just a sign of dance music being super popular, that it can be an industry/consumer divide instead...?

The feature articles have seriously dropped in quality too, mostly listicals.

Yeah im hitting up perth people mainly, hopefully they kept photos, also we lost teknoscape.com.au which has given me permission to upload their archive. I used to contribute so i have some old editors and photographers details... failing that playing with web.archive.org i can pull out some limited stuff !

If anyone does hear anything feel free to hit me up. Lots of people are keen for event and photos archive for ood times sake

Facebook is hopeless for forum like discussion, which has its place. Prob put photos on there, as everyone loves to stay in the site to view things... and hate clicking out to read or look eh youtube! Lol bloody social media

Yeah they still appear to have contacts with the now very consolidated big end promoters (sony?) But with thier junkee brand, it doesnt work exactly with festivals or gigs yet... that will change maybe? Or not.

Lacking the old content is leaving a gap that themusic or someone may end up stealing... if they care or dont act

So shit, it will be a sad day if/when they kill these forums and the community that goes with it. Been using itm for ten years, and so have a lot of good mates who I either met on here, or met at events I heard of from itm.

Here's hoping the forums can be salvaged!

Best case scenario they remove the forums from this shitty junkee etc. site or give us a separate domain, turn control over to us with a clean bug free install to do with what we want and continue the community

Sadly that rarely works. Seen it happen dozens of times over the years -- a forum dies and it's transplanted or revived elsewhere; it's okay for a month or two when the oldies come out of the woodwork for nostalgic value, but they soon go back to their normal posting habits and the forum dies shortly thereafter. You can't save a forum without an influx of new members to replace the ones that leave, something ITM has struggled with pretty much since Facebook became the main social medium.

These forums are probably left on life support because the forum analytics are too valuable to the overall site metrics, what's ultimately pitched to advertisers. The sad truth is this forum will never recover and it's only a matter of time before someone switches the life support off.

I went to Electric Gardens on the weekend. More than once I was asked "should we use real names or usernames" when meeting someone, which I thought was neat <3

I think 78% of the crowd there were ex-itmers. All the old farts come out of hiding for Digweed

A bit sad I didn't go, but also happy I didn't have to recover from it.

I gather the other 22% would have been shirtless dudebros looking out of place then?

When I moved to Brisbane I was blessed with meeting some great people from ITM, when I moved back to Sydney I didn't think I'd need ITM anymore but then I fell deeply in love with the S&F crew, even Derp. Now that I live in Adelaide I didn't expect to have any friends but I still managed to snag one via ITM. We were meant to be rock stars man!!!

Well the Brisbane forum looks pretty dead, which is a shame because for the first time in 30+ years, I'm actually moving away from Melbourne to Brisvegasvilletown.

while the Bris forum may be dead, the techno scene here is still kicking at least.

if you get here quick you could see Derrick May and Jeff Mills this Sat night.

I just tried smh, no problem. So far the only place I get it is here.

I'm downloading Homes under the Hammer at the moment, when it's finished I will switch off Disconnect and see what happens , but I think I did have it switched off earlier and I still had the problem . Doesn't hurt to double check. Btw what does it actually mean.

Safari iMac. What is really annoying is the they have a box to check if I don't want to receive alerts but I am still getting them

No idea. Google the text and you find a few bullshit links, reddit post which I replied to someone complaining that it happens on news.com.au and that's about it.

N.b. I've actually never had it on this site.
