10 years of Remix.Kwed.Org

23/11/2010Happy 10th anniversary, Remix.Kwed.Org!!!

On the 23rd November in the year 2000, a new website revolutionised the then young c64 remixing community: Remix.Kwed.Org, lovingly named RKO by its users, went officially online. Offering vast webspace and free bandwidth, and employing latest web technologies, its founder Jan Lund Thomsen finally enabled artists to submit their remixes into a free, central, automatic music repository. This system compelled by its minimal design and ease-of-use, quickly superseding or complementing the conglomerate of websites that existed before (Triad's mp3 site being the most popular), which were loosely organised via the c64rmx yahoogroup.

The success of RKO lay the groundwork for many of the scene websites that came after, including Remix64.com.

Thanks Jan for 10 years of ceaseless service to the scene!

ROTY voting 2010 begins

22/11/2010Very much belated, this year's votings for Remixer Of The Year 2010 have begun. You can vote for your favourites in various categories, either at the ROTY tab in the voting box, or directly at the central ROTY voting page.

Have fun, and vote like crazy! :-)

Email and password trouble

21/11/2010An unnoticed problem with the Remix64.com email engine prevented the submission of emails through the website since October. This was not indicated by any error message - the mails simply weren't sent. Affected services:

- Signup confirmation mails
- Mails sent to the staff or other members through the contact sheet
- Password recovery

Another related mishap caused the loss of all user passwords. They have been recovered from a backup made in March 2010 - if you have changed your password in the meantime, it will have reverted to the old one. Members who have joined after March 2010 have been provided with new random passwords via email.

Sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.

Forum cleanup

02/11/2010We have cleaned up the Commodore Remix Forum. Several related categories have been merged, the "Regional Threads" category has been removed. We've made these changes to ease keeping track of topics otherwise located in less frequented categories, and in general for a better overview.
