I have decided to stop with the Queenhub.
As you have noticed there are only a few fans still using the hub and now after a PC crash I have decided to stop.
Long time I was a big fan of Queen, but especially the last few years I lost the interest in the group and also with collecting I will stop.
After 14 years running the Queenhub (Therefore it was needed to let my PC on during these 14 years) it's good now and I will focus on other things in (real)life.

|Thank you for your effort :-)|
|Thank you for your hard work|
|I always will thank to the queen hub, thanks to that I discover a lot of things that I never though that exist. Thanks for this 14 years.|
|Thank you very much for your efforts! I do not know, how much GB I have downloaded during those all years... THANK YOU!|
|I never used the Queenhub myself but that's really impressive that you kept it going!
Wish you well and all the best! Will you still be doing the Excel databases or are you taking a long break from Queen? :P
|As a long time supporter of the Hub, I thank you for the past 14 years and to all the good people that shared the joy of Queen. I thank you all as well.|
|Thanks alot for everything|
|Thank you very much for all your efforts!|
|Thank you for your efforts.
I remember i used to be there in 2002/03. Amazing you managed to keep it running all those years.
|people on streets
|Thanks much for all you hard work!|
|I left last year the Hub cause you didn't connected anymore. I thought you had already left it.
Bad news in part, given that there are things almost impossible to find. But as far as it's better for you, congratulations.
|I had not been on the Hub for a long long time, but thanks for all your hard work through the years.|
|Many thanks for providing a great source of Material for so many years. Will there be an alternative way of obtaining these files moving forward?|

|Thank you so very much, Marco!!! I left the Hub many years ago because of other time demands life presented me, but I am really, really grateful.
I hope your computer crash was not too bad.
Wishing you all the best and with all my gratitude,
|Thank you very much for Queen hub support during all these years !
It was very special place, as for myself I collected from there not only tons of fantastic Queen recordings ,but also lots of other artists' recordings which I never supposed to find there .
Good luck !
|Best wishes Bokkepoot|
|Best wishes! Thank you for years of enjoyment. I remember when in the early 2000s iTunes erased my entire Queen catalogue through a glitch. I was so happy I had the hub back then to replenish those empty folders.
But you certainly have earned the right to shut it down! Thanks again!
|Thank you all so far for the best wishes and it's really nice to read all your stories and thoughts ! Thank you all so much for joining the hub in the past ! Without you all there should not be a queenhub :)|
|I didn't use it myself but still appreciate your hard work over the years. Thank you, and enjoy the well earned free time you deserve.|
|A page turns. :(
I was one of the very few that were still connected today just to share things but it is true there were much less people these last years.
It was a great tool to get any unofficial Queen in the 2000s. Downloading a flac show in 2004 at 3 ko/s during months from someone who was barely connected was a true labor of love. :D
Thanks for everything, Marco!
|Thank you Bokkepoot for taking over the hub from me 14 years ago, and having continued it for an amazing 14 years. I knew the hub would be left in good hands with you back then, and it turned out to be so!|
|Thank you for your nice words Stefan. There is happend a lot in these 14 years, but I can remember the "take over" time as yesterday :) Very nice time it was.|
|Thanks a million for your effort Bokkepoot. It was a great area for me to find very nice Queen related things. Especially when it was very difficult to find somethigs in Turkey. I've got many of excellent audio, video and other formats to collect Queen. I've lost the %50 interest of the band in last couple of years, just like you. But, it was a great chance to connecting some other Queen fans and make a good collection.
Thank you very much for all your efforts and best wishes to you.
I will miss the hub days...

All the best!
|Oh great times. The first time I got properly introduced to Queen bootlegs (and with a crappy internet connection, hehe). Must have been 13 years ago now.
Thanks for all your hard work and dedication!
Heel erg bedankt ;-)
|I knew this moment would be arrived at some point.
Thank you very much for your effort. I used the HUB everyday until some point, and I was using it these days too, connecting when I have some spare time to download the stuff I was missing.
The Hub was the best resource to get precious stuff of my favourite band, so you did a great thing.
Nowdays DC++ is just for "old school" downloaders, the Torrents world ate DC++ a lot of years ago.

When he started the hub, a whole world of unofficial files was suddenly available to all fans. Great times!!!
Thanks a lot!!!
|Thanks for your years of dedicated and persistent work.
I stopped using the hub about 10 years ago when my interest in Queen bootlegs started waning, and when I started computer gaming again (and needed all the computer memory I could scrounge from my old rig).
|Thank you very much for the Hub. I will never forget how everything started for me :)|
|I'm not a frequent visiter to your pages but want to say thank you for your long time contributions to Queenies in the world.|
|Thanks for all these glorious years.|
|Thanks for all, mate. Best wishes.|
|Sheeeit....this is the first time of me hearing about it. I'm sad to have missed it.
Thankless job most of the time but thank you for your esteemed contributions. I'm sure the band ought to appreciate it
|Wow sad to hear it's finally gone . Thanks to TRS for taking it from me and Bokke for picking it up after him. Was it really THAT long ago !!|
|Thanks for all the work you've put in that project.
Best wishes :)
|yo hacia mucho tiempo que no entraba. Pero para mi fue descubrir una parte de Queen que no sabia que existia.
|Thank you very much for all those GB of Queen music, it was great to be part of the Hub for a time and hear so much than otherwise could be almost impossible to collect.
Thank you remember that The Show Must Go On, because Life Is Real.
Saludos from México.
|Muchísimo material de Queen conseguí gracias a queenhub. Un enorme agradecimiento desde Argentina y suerte en tu vida.|
|Than you so much for your work. Best wishes for the future.|
|I used it from time to time and it was a very valuable resource in discovering new bootlegs and recordings. Thank you for all the effort you put in over the years and I am sure everyone here appreciates it too! You've done more for the Queen fan community than the band has done in the same amount of time!|
|I made great friends in the Hub. Thanks for your continuing effort thru the years.|
|I suspect my time on the hub was under one of the previous administrations, but well done for committing to it for so long|
|Will definitely miss it, I enjoyed matching your collection with mine, and especially in the days of the 2000+ tours. Last years I used it to catch up with missed downloads on Queenzone. Thanks for the work you did !|
|Thanks so much for running the Hub over so many years - what commitment! I'm really grateful. I haven't been active for a while either but I admire you for all your efforts.|
|Thank you Marco for all the time and help you have given me. What a place the hub was in the days years ago, I have not been connected to the hub for a some time, but it was glory days. The chat and the music in the same room, A big thanks from me to you.|
|So sad. Hope the links on the most Queen live bootlegs still alive.|
|The Hub fed by appetite for Queen for a long time in the past decade.
Thank you very much for keeping it alive for as long as you did!
|I used it a lot in the past, but in the last few years there wasn't alot of people around, so you probably took the right decision..|
|I want to see that why you end of the Queenhub. This forum gives always good information on such useful topics. You can get the british assignment help if you need for yourself to know more about this news.|
|I have made some great pals in this group. Unfortunately, everything has an end and this the time for Queenhub. I will miss everyone here especially those special guys from Britain who helped me do my essay UK whenever I was in need of help. Though it was off-topic they never disappoint me. I wish everyone Goodluck!|
