You may have already noticed the banner on the forums today stating that the forums will be closed on April 30th. Sadly the news is true (and no, it’s unrelated to coronavirus). Unfortunately the software that the forums run on is no longer healthily maintained, and it hasn’t been for some time. In the interest of user safety and reducing the amount of maintenance required to keep them online, the executive decision has been made that it’s time to say goodbye to the beloved MG forums at the end of April. As much as it pains us to have to do this, activity on the forums was already at an all-time low with the evolution of other social media platforms like Discord, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc. We encourage you to like/follow/subscribe to MG on our other social platforms in order to keep up with the community.

Rest assured, as far as everything else is concerned it will be business as usual at McLeodGaming moving forward!

And don’t forget that we have an official Discord:
https://discord.gg/mcleodgaming

What will happen to all of the content? That’s a lot of history!

We plan to convert all the forum content into a read-only format for preservation purposes. This may take some time so it may not be available immediately after closing, but in the interim the forums will be put into maintenance mode until the conversion is completed. (Who knows, while we’re at it maybe we’ll also revive a read-only archive of the original MG forum archives for nostalgia?)

Will there ever be a replacement?

Not in the immediate future, but we’ll see. The forums were not nearly as heavily used as our other social accounts, so replacing them may not be worth the time and effort to manage them. However as MG continues to grow and our needs change, there may be other ways to connect with fellow MG fans introduced some day.

In the meantime please savor these last few weeks of forum activity. The MG Forums had a truly good run (12 years to be exact, nearly 15 if you count the OG forums!), so let’s take this time to celebrate their legacy!
