Minor edits[edit]

Audiogalaxy was original a webpage that indexed private FTP servers, then became a file sharing system once Napster hit the scene. The tag line for the service was "Audiogalaxy (formerly known as The Borg Search)". I have added this to the article. Reverend Raven 23:53, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

Joan Baez[edit]

Stop crapping on the site with your "Joan Baez" you audiogalaxy losers. If anybody sees anything that seems remotely irregular on the site just delete it. It's just a loser from the audiogalaxy message board with some inane inside joke that's not funny to being with (like SOUPFIG). --- 66.71.60.92

How rude! --6612.262626.262953.f

Removed block of text on discussion groups[edit]

Could someone rewrite this in an objective POV (if people feel strongly it belongs)? I remember being a user on audiogalxy and was sorry to see it go. There were a lot of great tracks available that were out of print and essentially impossible to find/buy through any formal channels. As for the text below, if there is a rationale for the tone and name-dropping please feel free to share it. Thanks. -- Dx 07:43, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Although music is no longer shared, some message boards are still moderlately active. Some of the more active forums include the Radiohead, Rush, and General Discussion boards. The latter is usually characterized by fierce racism, bigotry, and other irreverencies you would generally associate with the internet. Incidentally, albeit not surprisingly, it is the most active forum. The Radiohead board is rife with overly pretentious pseudo-intellectuals that serve no other purpose than to severely bore other members into comas. The Rush message board on the other hand is somewhat unique in that it boasts probably the most sanitary (in terms of content) forum on Audiogalaxy. Its members are generally considered more civil, polite, and altogether intelligent than those found on many of the other discussion boards. Notable examples of supreme greatness on the latter board include FFX-Cloud (formerly Wisdom89), Arthur_Letick, HorribleCatfishman, Solecist, Galaxacus, nc_tech3, Marsfiresoul, MacCanine, Malicious_bloke2, Dave000, Carmievg, Greatsky, and Otis451.

There is no rationale for it and there is no reason for it to be shared on the page.

Miscellany[edit]

"Even though Audiogalaxy tried to cooperate with the music industry and block copyrighted songs from their network, they too got suited by RIAA"

They didn't try very hard. I can think of at least a couple of bands whose entire catalog was available on AudioGalaxy, in spite of being told repeatedly to remove it.

I recall that disputed in a salon.com article on the subject. It was the RIAA's lack of cooperation with the blocking effort that held them back. 65.25.155.252 02:15, 14 March 2006 (UTC)dan

Real Rhapsody?????[edit]

Real Rhapsody and audiogalaxy's rhapsody, I see a potential conflict or lawsuit.

Are they the same, or are they different? I know they are different, but it's puzzling that no one has said anything about this anywhere on the net.

Audiogalaxy uses RealNetworks' Rhapsody software. There is no conflict here. demivisage (talk) 00:09, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

External Links[edit]

Links to the blink 182 message board on Audiogalaxy fail to meet notability criteria. Also, Wikipedia is not used for promotion, advertising, or personal use. There is no reason to add unneeded and informal external links. Wisdom89 02:05, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Do we really need message board recognition?[edit]

Frankly, I'm appalled with the way some of you go about promoting your own message boards. I see that some of you try to sneak in an edit by telling us all which board is the most active on the late Audiogalaxy. We all know that the General Discussion, Radiohead or Mana boards are technically the most active. Including miniscule boards like Nine Inch Nails or Rush is simply not correct and utterly bias.

Why does this happen? Because those people have the power to edit and they choose to use it for their own egos. I'm not going to name names, but some of those people are in this very discussion page now. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Css1323 (talkcontribs) 16:10, 27 March 2007 (UTC).

Like me Michale the site owner. He is everywhere! !02:00, 23 April 2007 (UTC)~


Css1323 --- Your argument may be somewhat valid, but to deny that Audiogalaxy's message boards weren't a major part of the website, and a major part of the website's traffic and loyal customers, (especially when the site was virtually defunct for 8 years), is a gross misjudgment. I don't really care if it's on Wikipedia, or have any motivation to promote AG message boards, but you are wrong to think it's message boards aren't a large part of AG's story. - It even spawned a fully functioning AG-like replica website for only message boards, with thousands of threads/users: <http://agelesscommunity.com/> —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.25.102.130 (talk) 22:07, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Back up?[edit]

Anyone notice that Audiogalaxy is back up, as a music streaming service? I see there's nothing in the article about this. 98.148.159.127 (talk) 15:04, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Whoa. Run by the same guy(s), even. Google News turns up nothing about it yet, so I'll just add a note about what's on the website. —mjb (talk) 03:57, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

"Choruss is dead"?[edit]

That sounds very sad. Could we have a slightly less sad adjective? It's not really as if anyone died. :-) --95.34.4.130 (talk) 21:49, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
