I have just read a post about Mike wanting to pack it all in so i want to put this up for fellow SS`ers to give thier support and thanks for such a great site i dont think we could be without now,

ive been a member for 6 months and would like to say that being a scooter boy who loves his Northern Soul/Soul a big thanks for a new and brilliant way of learning so much more about my music with like minded people, to be able to buy/sell records, find out about artists and labels wether original or boots and make sure im buying the right thing, opinions right or wrong or different, music clips, events and feedback and even a freebasing room to talk crap, i have learnt so much and got to know a few folk i may never of met and gone to events i may never of known of,

so can i say a MASSIVE :thumbsup: for SOUL SOURCE AND THANK YOU :lol:

Yes, I'd just like to second what Bearsy has just said.

I've been a member for nearly a year & I have made so many new friends on here.

I know there must a lot of hard work goes into this site & I for one appreciate what Mike & the mods do.

Keep up the good work :thumbsup:

Yep... close it down, trim it back and bring it back - no anonymous visitors, no guests etc. Everyone out in the open. Really tighten things up and get rid of the rubbish. I've never seen the point of registering anonymously anyway... we're all here for the same thing :thumbsup:

Please keep this site going Mike, it is a lifeline for me being stuck in my pub all the bloody time, its the only way I have any clue whats going on. It's kept me going through the last year or so. I really really appreciate it

I've met you a good few times and I like to think I know you and consider you a mate, ignore the idiots, see past the crap and keep this site going, it is absolutely fantastic and a unique contribution to the Northern Soul scene today.

Thank you thank you thank you :thumbsup:

I started a thread some time ago on here under the title "Thank you Mike" along the lines of everyone took this site for granted and it was an everyday essential part of some peoples lives , did'nt cost a dime to be a member of and has brought so much pleasure to so many people.

So much work has been put in to bring it to where it is at the moment with all the changes in the past 12 months with a complete overhaul of the look of the site and the new Ref-O-Soul sounds section it would be a complete shame to give up now as Soul Source is now better in many ways than it ever has been.

There will be a time in the future when Soul Source will finally close its doors but now is certainally not the right time as events on here today whether it's to do with this subject or any other has proved. The viewing figures on here today must have broke the daily record.

Soul Source is a Priceless Treasure.

Been on here about a year,enjoyed the forums, particuliar( look in your box ) when soundfiles were allowed,but, the backstabbing & all the politics on the scene seem to have got completely out of hand,I know it's always been there but surely we should have all grown up by now.At the end of the day it's our music,I don't want to hear about rival promoters & legal threats,go where you want to go,been into this for 35 years the good & bad times.Don't let soul source end with bad memories,the music & the site is to good for that to happen.Best wishes to All.

Take some time out Mike, have a break, it may be good for you.....come back refreshed and full of positive energy.

This site is valued by many people, including myself and it would be a shame for it to shut shop :thumbsup:

You and the mods do a great job, dont let the shit heads get you down!

Yes, I'd just like to second what Bearsy has just said.

...And I'd like to second Kirsty's 'second'. I've only been on SS a relatively short time but the amount of postings I've already made shows how much I enjoy its presence in my life.

Mike has done - and I sincerely hope, after a short period of reflection, will continue to do - a wonderful job in keeping everything moving on the site. Even if this doesn't turn out to be his 'Last Farewell' I'd like to say 'well done, that man', and thanks for everything...

TONE :thumbsup:

Thank you thank you thank you :thumbsup:

Agree with Pul here Mike, keeps us all in touch as we cant all be globetrotting around the UK to soul nites to keep up with everything. And it keeps me occuppied when the girls of the house are watching shite on tv! Made lots of friends thru this site - many of which i havent yet met but hope to meet them all in the future :lol: . Been helped out loads of times thru this site - in search of records, mp3s, valuations etc etc. Keep going Mike - you and the rest of the team are doing a great job, f**k the knockers whoever you are. :lol:

I visit a few soul/vinyl related sites on the web and must say this is my favourite, i have a lot less free time on my hands than i did a few years back, but i've met a few people via the site that have become firm friends. Websites are no different to the real world, people fall out, have rows etc, you always have a few loathsome weasels even in the workplace, but the majority on here have a life, job etc and use the site as a good resource for soul related articles,events,sales etc. Mike it would be a shame to throw all that hard work away.

The only thing I can say being a member since March 2004 and in all that time not once have heard any one say bad things about this site. So Mike lets look back at the facts!! remember all the soul do's that's been mentioned, sale that's been done, the gossip we have all talked about good and bad, pic's and flyers that's been shown, all the problems that's been ironed out, support that we have given each other, even to those we have never met because when the shit hits the fan's on soul source, we as a group throw it back without striking a blow better than any court room don't you think? You and the soul source site is bigger than any venue that I have ever been too from way back in the early 60's yes I'm an boring old "fart" but never have I seen a response like you have created with this site

So Mike

Keep-on-Keepin-on good on ya

I don't know you either,Mike, but I think you should be extremely proud and congragulated for what you've achieved with Soul Source. I would say that the site is indispensable and for me it's the 2006 equivalent of Dave Godin's old column but far more informative and influential.

I've no idea of the workings of the internal computing engine but if your withdrawal meant that we would lose this site, then it would be akin to the Casino,Mecca,Stafford,100 Club etc all shutting their doors on the same day.

I've corresponded with some really nice genuine people and some modern fans on here and would really like to continue doing so.

Im sure your efforts on our behalf are very time consuming and maybe you could be doing something else such as a spot of DIY, taking the wife shopping or the kids to see the Arctic Monkeys!!

I hope you reconsider.

f**k the knockers

Absolutely! Hear Hear! I'd like to express my whole, and heartfelt, support of Grant's statement.

And to Mike and Soul Source. Keep on keeping on. This site is brilliant, all of human life is here. People just take it a bit too seriously sometimes, it's like having a discussion between 100 people in the pub after a few drinks and where everyone's voice can be clearly heard by everyone else. It'd end in a bloodbath at times but it would also be entertaining, informative and jolly funny at others.

I would say more but thanks to Grant my mind is somewhat occupied with thoughts of f***ing knockers.

hope you don't pack it in the problem is most people don't know what they've got till its gone and i understand that sometimes with the bitchiness that you must seem to get stuck in the middle of must drive you to dispare. but its like any group of people bound by a common interest opinions will varey and arguements will occur you just have to stand back a bit and remember that this is the bit of our lives we are suppose to be enjoying its not work its our recreation time and not a personal crusade.imo this site is brilliant in all aspects and the soul scene would be loosing a now large positive chunk of its make up if it were to close. keep your chin up ace .paul :lol:

ALREADY PUT MY TUPPENCE WORTH IN , BUT SERIOUSLY MIKE....YOU'VE CREATED SOMETHING SPECIAL HERE FOR ALL THE REASONS ALREADY STATED AND IT HAS BECOME ESSENTIAL TO MANY OF US WHO CAN SEE AT A GLANCE WHAT'S HAPPENING. I'VE PERSONALLY RECONNECTED WITH MANY OLD PALS AND MADE LOADS OF NEW ONES. ADD TO THAT THE MYRIAD OF INFORMATIVE ARTICLES THE TRADE AND SALES ARENA AND THE HILARIOUS BANTER AND QUITE FRANKLY MIKE...IT'S A WINNER AND WORTH YOUR EFFORTS !! SO PLEASE DON'T PACK IT IN.....YOU HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF SOLID SUPPORT AND BACKING !!

I second what dennis said Mike, best soul site on the planet. you cant kill frankenstein you know - he will just haunt you forever :lol:

As you know Mike I made the very first northern soul website on the net back in the early 90's - you however have built the biggest and without a doubt the best - dont let it die. need any help just ask.

Come on Mike, you've got to laugh at some of the stuff on here. As well as being genuinly funny bordering on comedy genius at times, as others have said where else can you learn so much, buy and sell tunes, find out about events, chat and realise how global the soul music scene is. This site pulls it all together and it feels like soul's headquarters. Close it down and people won't know where to go or what to do, mind you I'd actually get some work done. Keep up the good work fella (and the other Mods) :lol:

Agreed. Too many positives come out of this site and far outweigh the negatives (although I appreciate how frustrating thry must be.) Keep it up Mike & team

Good god Mike how can you think of packing the whole thing in??

This site has and does play a pivotal part in many soul peoples lives

I know that sometimes the whole of the soul world is on your shoulders and that can seem a hard cross to bear but in the end you created a HUGE soul family

And Im sure I get backing of every single member when I say

You have everyones support

Mand :O) the happy soulie XX
