So after 15 years, DenDen Forums has shut down.
I know for a lot of you it doesnt mean anything or don't even know what it was but for me it was like part of my life.
I signed up at the end of 2002 and befriended soon a guy i now call one of my best friends : Jay
Our nights on msn also with other users were iconic
The site was of course useful for all information,rumours etc in Spiceworld. We even got unreleased songs thanks to the community and some fantastic members.
I hope a lot fantastic DenDen users will sign up on here and keep the old Denden spirit alive wub.gif

hi.gif DenDen'ers

EDIT - should add that it's a shame that it's closing after being active for so long, I can only hope that y'all find somewhat of a home here or in the Facebook group and still have somewhere to talk

A shame to see the forum closing after 15 years. I was never a member but occasionally lurked for reunion rumours (e.g. the whole Spice Girls GEM mess *_*)

I hope the new Spice Girls AF on here proves to be a good new home for DenDen members.

It's a shame this has ended up happening, especially as it was apparently not a money issue but just a personal decision by the founder, seems like a bit of a slap in the face to the community really sad.gif

RIP DenDen ~

It is a shame the forum has shut down and I know much it means to a lot of you so I am sorry it has shut down sad.gif

However, I hope we can be a good home to many DenDeners if they want to make this forum their home.

I always thought DenDen would be around... evidently that was naive of me to think! I signed up there when I was 14, I'm now 29... I remember thinking how great it was to have found a place that had so many Spice Girls fans, after a few years of being a secret fan (it was social suicide to admit to liking them as a group / solo artists at my school by 2000, so I had no one to loon with! drama.gif laugh.gif ). I have a lot of fun memories from over the years, but most importantly I made some amazing friends (including a certain topic starter x) - that's what I cherish the most about having been a DenDen member. heart.gif

BuzzJack has been my "second forum home" for years now; admittedly I've never quite fully thrown myself into posting regularly all over the forum, because I remained so active on DenDen. I feel very much a part of BuzzJack's community though, and I'm so glad that I have an obvious place to continue posting. It makes me feel ok about DD's demise!

A shame to see any popular forum close down. By the way i must ask, why was it called DenDen?

If it was mostly to do with The Spice Girls it should have been called something with the word 'Spice' in it.

Exactly, if the founder didn't want to run it any more maybe he should have sold it to someone else. Oh well, at least Buzzjack has got bigger as quite a few former members have now joined over the last week or so.

At least he didn't call it SpiceDen, that would have sounded like too much of a drug reference now!

I feel sad for you guys actually - I remember when ChC suddenly closed and it was really strange just not having it there. Hopefully Buzzjack will be as good a home for you all.

It was just a music forum. Originally there used to be a forum called 'Cool Clarity' which then died and both 'Buzzjack' and 'ChC Media' rose from the ashes. ChC Media was less mainstream than Buzzjack I'd say, we were pretty much all alternative music fans.
