MUCH TOO COMPLICATED

I had a new computer installed and although I pleaded with my computer installer to be careful with my programs, especially Karaokeinfo it didn't survive the change to Vista 7. I have since tried to activate it with a $20 fee but have multiple emails that I do not understand and because I am still in their system with an email and password I cannot start again from scratch. This program has always been far too complicated for the average music searcher, especially the download part. (Or at least that is my opinion from a seventy-six year old perspective. Contacting them is as hard as running the program. All you get is pre-set answers or more likely a page where you get to join others to sort out what won't work for you. This is not an expensive program considering all the music available. Maybe that is why the help is so complicated. Great program once you are "voiced" and searching.

Karaokeinfo.com

I paid about $69 dollars to Karaoke.com for "free" karaoke downloads. They do not provide the downloads. They sell a karaoke guide to find the downloads. Karaokeinfo claimed the most computer illiterate person could use the guide. That was a lie. I had to have a computer programmer install it. The guide took me to a network called Realmworld which is a free network. Realmworld has a lot of rules for use of their network. Karaokeinfo did not mention those rules. If you do not follow the Realmworld rules you can be penalized or even banned. I did not fully understand some of the program functions so I was banned. The notice I received read, "you are banned from Realmworld. Go *** yourself you insignificant *** with the I.Q. of a cardboard box." That is just wrong.

I've ordered the information from KaraokeInfo twice over the last decade. All this is is information on how to share karaoke files in an Internet Relay Chatroom, convert those files to whatever format you desire and burn them to disc.

You can go into the IRC room without buying the package but the rules are strict and, without knowing them, you will probably get booted. What you are buying is INFORMATION, not songs. Those songs are protected by copyright laws and it would be illegal to sell them without paying royalties. Sharing these file is perfectly legal so long as those who download them don't use the files for commercial gain.

Finally, YES, you have to be somewhat computer savvy to use this information. If you aren't, then you simply won't be able to share and trade files.

I was a novice when I started but learned quickly. The result was many times worth the money spent for the information.

I was banned also. I lost the program because of a hard drive failure.

I reinstalled it from a CD and now i was told my account is inactive. NO help from these guys on any subject. Can't get help at the support site either.

Let me put this another way. Save your money because these people suck.

Yeah I too was banned and have not been able to get any kind of help for 3 days. I was also told that you could go to Karaokeinfo support forum and get help but I can not even request in there either.

I have tried emailing as well.

I have not received my free support for 90 days. Going to ask for a refund!

The leaders of Realm World or Karaoke Information are the rudest nastiest people. Because they have the power to control people who enter their "realm" they can treat anyone with disrespect that they chose to do so.

I tried unsuccessfully to get help from these people and could not. I made some mistake and got banned from using the site with no explanation. You would think they would know when someone is new and sent from Karaoke Info and they would give warnings and send a notice about forum rules.

I think they like their power too much.

Unable to post a query on any forum: all locked

Being a long time user of the mIRC karaoke program, I would think I could find a forum on the karaokeinfo support site that would let you post a question or topic! I searched. And searched. I found none. There seems to be no one interested in allowing any question or post on that site today, as ALL forums were locked to new posts! What is with that? More of "no customer service" it would appear. I guess they (karaokeinfo) put up this nice site, but since you (the consumer) didn't really pay for it, "we're not obligated to monitor it, so we'll just lock all the forums and go take a nap...or a ___"!! This kind of no customer service should have been a thing of the past, but I find it lives on, and am left with nowhere to ask a simple question regarding having to be gone for an extended period of time. I merely wish to know whether or not I should mark myself as "away" on the mIRC program, or use some other method to protect myself from losing my "voice" which enables me to utilize their program functions. And that is to say nothing of my investment. By being out of touch with my home computer, and therefore unable to log in to mIRC for a period in excess of their 20 (or so) "apparently" allowed absence days, and having been warned by a "bot" on that program that said non-usage for that period of time, would result in a ban being inflicted upon me, I would really like to know what I should do. Obviously, I ask too much. Obviously, I rant too much. Obviously, no one seems to care.

Kiss your money goodbye. If try to get info by typing /karaokeinfo in the forum you may as well forget.

If you do happen to get a hold of someone they will be rude and disrespectful. If you can handle that then MAYBE you will get your information.
