Good afternoon everyone,
As you can see from the title of the thread, after a lot of thought, the time has come for these forums to be permanently closed. I’ll lay out the reasoning for you below.
• They’re archaic. They are a total eyesore and don’t mesh well with the rest of our website. We could overhaul them and make them look great, but the amount of activity on these forums would not justify the cost and work involved.
• They’re hardly active. There’s really not a lot of activity on these forums at all. Compared to other places where we are present, like Facebook and Twitter, the forums are a whisper!
• They can’t thrive without some proper TLC. We simply can’t dedicate the time we would need to, to these forums to ensure they are properly moderated. We’d also like to be able to reply and run initiatives on the forums, but we simply don’t have the time or resource.
We know this will be very sad news to some, as you have dipped in and out of these forums for years, however, we feel this is the right thing to do. We want to do things properly, or not at all, and at this point doing it “properly” isn’t justifiable due to the amount of inactivity.
The forums will close at 11am BST on Thursday the 27th June. New accounts will no longer be registered and it won’t be possible to make new threads or reply to them. An archive will be stored here: http://forums.playtonicgames.com/
- so you can still come back and revisit any fond thread memories you may have.
We’ll still, of course, be active in other areas, like Twitter, Facebook and the news section of our website.
Thanks for hanging around for as long as you did!
