Big Grin Lets hear it for YouTwo.Net!

Really too bad but absolutley understandable that the site is now down. I've been reading youtwo.net every day for 3 years now and it was always the first place I went for u2 news.

I think we should post some comments about this site and give proper respect to some people who worked extremely hard for almost a decade running that site.

My best memory will always be "whoring" the electrical storm demo on a Sunday morning in september.

Thanks for all the work and effort that made it the premier site for U2 news and one the best band sites in the world.

HOLLA!

I don't know how long before this thread is locked, since youtwo.net is sort of a competitor of U2news.com, which is run by this site. But yes, it is indeed a great site for all your U2 information.

Psst...the entire site is still up. They just covered the index page with its farewell.

So if you need to do some last minute surfing, navigate from this link.

Yeah, I too am really bummed that this site is going away. I've been checking that site almost daily for the new news on U2 for about 4 years now. I'll miss it.

I want to cry...

I wish www.youtwo.net could be saved and intact. It was one of The best U2 sites on the net.

You couldn't be more wrong. I'm as sad to see Prarits site go as anyone else. I actually heard from Prarit himself several days prior to the posting of his note. Him and I have both discussed these 'feelings' of being webmasters on and off during the past. We are on good terms, despite what some people may think.

I know this was an incredibly hard decision for Prarit to come to, one I've toggled with myself. I wish him the best, thank him for the years of work he devoted to the U2 community, and I am glad that he did not end it at a point where he may have been soured from the U2 fan base at large, but rather a high point.

If the least we can do, is continue to maintain U2news.com, in the tradition that Prarit did with Youtwo.net - we will strive.

Again, I'm sorry to see Prarit exit at this time, but everyone must make their choices... and perhaps what he spoke about the expense of running a large site will make people appreciate other sites a bit more, including this one.

I think everyone in the U2 fan base creates a community. U2news.com, YouTwo.Net, all the same news pretty much = U2.

If they did shut it down prematurely it would be dissapointing to say the least.

Well I was bashed once for touting this site so with my rep I'd better not say anything other than I am surprised. I am especially surprised Prairat has a problem with the EXIT list, I thought he was really down with them. Hey, just who DO they like?

Lol... the EXIT list is an elitist list .... while some people on the list are nice, the people who founded and maintain the list... as well as a core group... are just schmucks.

I was banned from the group before even joining (which I haven't) - and IM PROUD OF THAT

Fear not we still have U2 news here! Youtwo.net did have inside stuff no one else had, like Ruth Barohn's reports and pics. Maybe our sad eyed lady will come back here and report for us!

i agree. the u2online community is remarkable, and as far as i can tell, no other band has as great of a presence on the net as they do. u2 does have great (and net-savy) fans.

Wow.. this is certainly a shock.

I can see why Prarit chose to close the site. I'm still sad, though. Great photo at the end.. Otto.
