    Top work Greg. It's great to see someone with the enthusiasm and passion of buying and ripping tapes that I once had fella.

    Your time, money and efforts are fully appreciate by most bud. Even more by the people who will go on to sell them!

    But they never even bother to say thanks.

    I've said it before, I know, but it's so sad to see places like OSA so quiet these days. It's only a small handful of people that trawl these pages in the shadows to grab mixes to sell, but ultimately, they have ruined it for the masses.

    Keep up the top work fella, and thanks for sharing

    I guess there should be a disclaimer button that you tick when posting a download link saying --

    "by posting this link you agree that anybody can share your link, make profit from your content, and pass on your work as being their own"

    I wonder if that would make people think twice about sharing their ripps on the world wide web

    I totally understand what your saying hernry, but their are the few,who like me who generally want to download the tape rips and listen to them and get tracklist for their mixing, so my tapes are here for the poeple like me. For the people who want the rips to listen to, not everyone is going download them and sell them on. But I have only made them so they can listen to them via my mixcloud page. I know they can be ripped from their but the sound quailty is not the same, as a pure mp3. Only my friends will get a copy of the pure mp3. Am not that stupid I know this forum is full of leeching scum.

    This is exactly me. I would share my own if i had any, but i only had 3 or 4 unique tapes that i uploaded years ago. I try to help with tracklists, and it has been my background hobby (some might say obsession) for years. To be honest i think most people are the same. The problem is that it just takes one or two profiteering assholes to ruin it for everyone. Nothing gets shared, the community dies. And if the idiots that actually bought the mp3's just looked, they'd see that they can get the music for free anyway and join a great community. It's really damn frustrating.

    Anyway Hi HV! It's good to see you are still around too. I thought i was the only one lurking in the background these days

    I totally undrstand what your saying, but just one day their might be someone like myself who comes along looking for tapes to listen to and it would be a real shame if their was nothing here for them to fine.
    I know collecting tapes is a very expensive hobbie.
    Maybe another me might come along and it would be nice to think their are rips and track list for them to find like their was for me. giving back what was giving to me.

    And I try to not think about the people who steal for profit, just the people who generally want the rip to listen to.

    gregsta im one of the very few who have persevered with uploading to OSA when everybody else has moved on

    its felt like im the caretaker for OSA coming in now and again to sweep the floor and get rid of the cobwebs.

    its soul destroying when you upload sets and don't even get a single reply.

    I actually laughed when i read this cause there have been times when i saw your uploads/comments and have seen literally no feedback. And i have to include myself in there. Feeling a little shame here. Your dedication to the cause is above and beyond mate. I've been distracted with other things but i do still regularly check OSA and tuneID, and i'm absolutely certain that i'm not the only one.

    Maybe it's the dodgy mix-stealing bastards, but maybe its facebook, or maybe its kids. I do think that OSA could do with a higher profile cause i think the oldskool community is still pretty big. Is there a reddit sub? Maybe something like that would help.

    I do think OSA needs a re-vamp, its not very mobile friendly, VBulletin have released a mobile friendly version but its $199 to upgrade & I dont think butty etc would throw any money at OSA now, not enough users.

    vBulletin Mobile Suite - For Use with iPhone, iPad, Android

    It's pretty shocking not getting replies. I think you've done amazingly to keep going Scott.

    Hats off to you buddy. You have done a fantastic job for years, not only on here, but on your own site.

    I don't really have that prolem my phone is a heap of shit, their is still a massive market for desktops with all the gamers, with web sites like scan and overclocked.com the decktops is no were dead. Even if I did have a nice phone I still would rather listen to music thought the sound card on my motherboard and look at the net though a 27" screen. I only use my tablet when am downstairs watching Tv.

    I think some of it is mixcloud and soundcloud and people can't be arsed to interact on a forum, you can just go on there listen to people tapes and don't have to say nothing. I like taking on a forum as you can see.
