The Future of VocaCenter.net

Hello! randsss here. You’re probably wondering why there’s hasn’t been new updates over here at VocaCenter.net

When I started this as The Vocaloid Center website about seven years ago, I was still in college and was still relatively active in the community. As the years go by, I find myself focusing on school and eventually work while dealing with personal issues so there hasn’t been much progress on developing this website further.

With that said, I know there has been other Vocaloid-related news sites that emerged since our last activity. I had actually planned to reboot VocaCenter.net, even with just the podcast this year but unfortunately this has been complicated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

This was the final nail on the coffin and I’ve finally decided that I’m starting to discontinue further activities on VocaCenter.net, including the podcast, and pages on Facebook and Twitter. We didn’t have much of an audience anyways but I’m still thankful and appreciate those who did find us and follow us even for a brief time.

What’s next?

I will still continue to write anything related to Vocaloid and other vocal synths over at VocaSphere! You’ve probably seen their articles and posts being passed around. Going forward, I will continue to contribute any new content through the VocaSphere website, Facebook, and Twitter.

I feel this is a better step considering I’m not as much in the loop as when I was still writing here and working with more people who still actively find and write stories would be helpful to keep updates going. Admittedly, VocaSphere has built and established a much larger following than what I can achieve within the past two years.

VocaSphere needs help!

While I have decided to join VocaSphere, we’re still a small team of volunteers and still looking for more people who can join and help bring VOCALOID and other vocal synth content to the west!

Here’s a few things you can do at VocaSphere:

  • Proofreader: We’re always in need of more proofreaders to help make sure we’re releasing articles that are typo-free and well formatted.
  • Facebook Content Creator: If you follow vocal synth music or artists, we always need more people to help highlight the community works on our Facebook page.
  • Article Author: Even if you just have an undying passion for a single vocal synth character and want to cover all the news regarding only that character, you’re more than welcome to! You can be the resident expert on any character, company, or even merchandise! (Please note that we already have a lovely author who works on all Medium5 content)

Of course, you’re not limited to just these roles, and you’re not limited so a single role, either. VocaSphere is all about enjoying this amazing community in whatever way you want to and never pressuring anyone to take on more than they can handle.

If you’re interested in helping us out at VocaSphere, let us know on Twitter or Facebook.
