Ever since we started the VOICES FROM THE DARKSIDE online version back in 2000, we always refused offers from labels that wanted to book ad space / banners of any kind. We wanted the site to remain completely ad free and we will definitely continue to do so in the future as well.
But due to the fact that technology marches on we had to go for a completely new software in order to be able to continue on. Otherwise VOICES FROM THE DARKSIDE would definitely have been history in early 2020.
Our goal was to come up with a new version that still has all the old features and a layout as close to the old version as possible. And if you check out the result, I think we pretty much succeeded in all that, thanks to the incredible help of Andi Bauer, who made it all happen.
But it costed a lot of time and money. Money that I had to spend out of my own pockets.
So, instead of turning VOICES FROM THE DARKSIDE into a commercial site, I figured it would be better to ask our dedicated longtime readers for help… which you did!
And I can’t thank you enough for that. Even though we “only” reached 787,49 Euro (of the needed 1000 Euro), it was totally flattering to hear how much you actually care about what we do.
So, I can’t say it often enough:
Thank you all for your help!
