The MiniWarGaming Forum is Shutting Down

Hey everybody,

After careful consideration I have decided to shut down the MiniWarGaming forum.

While it has been around for many years it just hasn't been our focus as of late, especially as other social media (i.e. Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, etc.) has proven to be a better place for us to interact with our viewers.

The cost of maintaining the forum, making sure the software is kept up to date, keeping hackers and spam bots out, etc., is just not worth it at this time.

I will be disabling the full forum shortly. Feel free to reply to this post or any others until then!

Thank you for all your contributions.

Matthew

P.S. I don't plan on deleting the forum, just disabling posting. That way the posts that are here will still be accessible, albeit read-only.

Not surprising, to be honest. I've noticed a dramatic drop in activity in the past few months.

Dissapointing but more than understandable.

Don't suppose we have an expected date?

Is it possible to keep a few topics open? Like the narrative campaign that some members are actively writing in? It is understandable if it isn't possible though.

I should start selling prophecies... it's saddening me, but it's understandable nonetheless, as it was definitly not worth the costs for the company anymore. It was always fun to watch peoples progress and to get motivation and inspiration for painting. It's a pity that though, that the MWG staff let the forum die down completly. I believe a few more or less active posters from the staff could have gotten people to participate more frequently (i.e. advertising the painting deathmatches and such), as people might have liked some reaction and friendly conversation with MWG team members. I really don't get the same feel of ,,community" over the so called ,,social medias" by simply commenting on the same staff posts in short replys with other MWG fans/vault members.

Cheers, it's been a fun time! If anyone would like to recommend me an alternative to talk abkut painting projects (favourably with something similar as the deathmatches here) shoot me a pm as long as it still works!

I wonder how much it would cost to keep this forum active? I would be inclined to donate a few dollars to keep the community alive. Who else would?

Have you guys at Miniwargaming thought of starting up a subreddit on reddit? I think that could be a fun place for us to post pictures and do a lot of the painting related things we used to do on here. It is another form of social media you guys could use too!
