SwingDJs.com Shutting It's Doors

Our friend Jesse Miner just announced that the long-running discussion space for lindy hop music enthusiasts SwingDJs.com is shutting down as of the end of this year. Here’s what Jesse posted today:

After 16 wonderful years, I sadly announce that the discussion board at SwingDJs.com will closing its doors at the end of the year. This site has been an incredible supportive community for swing DJs over the years, and I cannot thank you all enough for being integral parts of its success. But discussions on the internet have shifted elsewhere, and we are long-overdue in saying goodbye to this now-quiet online resource.

As of January 1st, 2019, I will be locking all of the forums. Past discussions will still be visible while the ability to start new discussions will be disabled.

By April 1st, 2019, the site will disappear, but we will do our best to archive the past two decades of discussions.

Sixteen years is an incredible run for a community website, particularly in as niche a community as lindy hop DJs. With 3,209 posts, and 1,190 registered users, that’s quite a body of work. Check out some of the discussion topics that the site has hosted over the years:

Kudos to Jesse Miner, and all the other admins and moderators who kept this music resource going for so long.
