    With the retiring of VocaloidOtaku someone pinged me about making Vocaloid forums here on UtaForum. That is already underway, a lot of the boards are going to be reshuffled, things will get spruced up a bit, and Vocaloid will get its own forum section again amongst other changes.

    Beyond that, I am reminded of a project I started somewhere last year but never followed up on. I ended up with an unused (not expired) MooSocial license after a client backed out of a project. I liked the software during my testing and I had the idea of an UTAUOnline-like social network powered by the software but for every Singthesizer, not just UTAU.

    I installed it, setup a demo at: http://vocafun.com/
    I never skinned it, I just laid out the groundwork for it, setting up the categories, tags, social features, but eventually abandoned it as I was testing the idea in the middle of my final semester leading up to my graduation and I didn't have the time to develop it further.

    The demo site is now overrun by bots because I never installed a CAPTCHA or email verification on it but if you signup with dummy details and login you can have a rough idea of what I was planning.

    What do you think of this concept? Do you think its something worth pursuing? Please share your thoughts.

    I have taken some screenshots of the features I had setup and finished testing before I discontinued development.

    Message Boards Example:

    Social Feed Example:

    Personal Blog Example:

    Groups & Fanclubs Example:

    Sample Group & Fanclub Page:

    Video Gallery Function:

    Needless to say all these functions tie together.

    Your actions in each of the other areas show up on your social feed and for people who run their own Groups or FCs will have their own message boards, video galleries, group feed, etc.

    The Alpha of VocaFun.com is Ready.

    Does the logo remind you of a leek? It was supposed to look like a leek.​

    Anyways I nuked the old site because it was spam infested. I renewed the license and updated the back-end software from 2.5 to 3.0. I also re-setup a lot of the categories outside of the Blog and Video section. I have feedback threads for each of the site's functions on the VocaFun forums and am looking for feedback.

    Anyone who is interested in helping out please sign up, poke around, and tell me if anything breaks. Also once I get the permissions worked out I will likely need some moderation staff. Message me on VocaFun if you are interested and I will get back to you after I am ready to do recruitment.
