Futuremark Forums is closing December 1 2017

If you need something, better print it.
Admin announcement :
I know many of you will be sorely disappointed by this news. But there's no avoiding the fact that activity on our forum today is a fraction of what it was in its prime.

Those of you that have been here the longest will remember that it wasn't always this way.

Ten years ago, the forums were getting more than 2,000 new posts a day. But since then, every year has seen a sharp and steady decline with fewer posts, fewer visits, and fewer new members joining. With no sign of that trend changing, and activity in the forums now slowed to a crawl, it is time to call it a day.

Since opening in April 2000, the forums have helped thousands of people and maybe even changed a few lives. Some of the top posters have been members for more than 15 years. I know that many of you are very grateful for the forums and will miss them deeply when they are gone.

You are welcome to make personal copies of any posts you'd like to keep. There is no easy way to save all your posts, unfortunately, but there is an option to download all of your PMs at the bottom of the "My Messages" page.

The forums will remain open for posting until December 1. After December 1, the forums will be closed and we'll be redirecting visitors to a notice page on our main website.

It's often said that a community is defined by its members. So to those of you that have been with us since the beginning, everyone that is still here now, and especially to our volunteer moderators and admins who kept things running smoothly - a huge thank you from me and everyone else at Futuremark for all your support over the years.

*** Added November 27 ***

All those posts will be lost forever, kind of sad.
