Once tagged as the prime source for everything Vocaloid for nine years with about 25,000 registered users, the VocaloidOtaku.net forums (VO) has officially gone offline as announced in late February that it was shutting down citing decreased user activity over the years.
The forum boards itself was no longer accessible by around March 28th before the entire website went dark three days later as scheduled. While VO advised its users to reach out to other active online Vocaloid fan communities to stay in the loop, there were already discussions of setting up a new forum site as a spiritual successor to VO.
“Many users came together to help create the new forums and after a lot of hard work, VVN is finally ready for the world!”
As the new forums is under the VNN banner, users can expect the new site will be maintained by its global team of administrators and moderators.

It is expected VVN will be introducing more features and further plans in the near future. For now, former VO users are expected to flock over to the new forums.
