Erasure : Site History

 

The site was created back in 2000 as 'Erasure: An Unofficial Site' at a web template on Zyweb but soon with a move to Geocities dawned and a new HTML site was finally introduced by late 2001 and the site was named 'Erasure Online'. The new site was designed using Loveboat colour schemes and fonts. By early 2002, the site was designed using Flash technology. However updates were hard using this format and by mid 2002 with a new Erasure album in the process of being made, a new site design was incorporated and when I first heard Wonderland, I changed the name of the site to the wonderful 'March On Down The Line'.

From there the site went from strength to strength with more and more exclusive features being published with more and more fans praising the site. In 2004 I decided to give the site a new unique identity - the only Erasure fan site to publish information on selected other artists in the special features section of the website.

The artists chosen was Soft Cell, Human League and Kylie Minogue. These proved to be very successful despite the only brief biographies, chart positions and selected images and MP3 sound clips.

By May 2005 with the Kylie page alone taking in hundreds of unique views a month it was decided to expand the March On Down The Line site to include a complete Kylie section.

It was at this point that March On Down The Line became massive - the amazing forum attracts many posts every day from people from South Wales and Yorkshire to Boston and Denmark.

2006 saw another big change when we moved domains and changed the site name to Erasure-Interactive when the demand on the March On Down The Line site came to big for both the Erasure and Kylie sites to continue on the same server.

2008 and 2009 were very difficult years after a number of number of financial problems and server attacks led to long periods of downtime. However by 2010 Erasure-Interactive relaunched successfully on new hosting at Dream-hosting and we're all ready for Erasure's hopeful 2010 comeback.

The first few months of 2010 also saw us launch a Facebook and Twitter update service to compliment our re-launched forum and existing YouTube channel. Our Facebook page has already 60 fans.

When I first designed the site in 2000 to coincide with the release of the Erasure album 'Loveboat' I never could have imagined the success story that lay ahead of me. Here's looking to 2010 and hopefully this'll be our biggest and most successful year to date.
