Gearbox Forums Shut Down July 19, 2022


To our Forum Community,

We’ve had many good years of conversations on the Gearbox Forums. This has been a great place to connect with all of you and a haven for amazing discussions, builds, and support. During the past year, we noticed many of our community members prefer to engage on our other social platforms—and that’s great. We love talking to y’all and keeping the community going there.

Looking at where the conversations are taking place and feedback is expressed, we want to continue that dialog on our social channels where much of the community is getting their information. Our Support team will continue to receive your feedback and concerns through support.gearbox.com.

As of July 19, 2022, we will turn categories to Read-Only. This means members will no longer be able to create posts on the forums, but folks will be able to read previous posts. This will provide 30 days to save any content you want to keep before it is closed. Later this summer, you’ll notice a new Gearbox website and the forums will disappear entirely.

Thank you for years of chats, guides, support, and for making this a great community. We look forward to continuing the conversation with you.


Officially supported Community Discords are:
Borderlands Discord: https://discord.gg/borderlands
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Discord: Tiny Tina's Wonderlands
Godfall Discord: Discord
Homeworld Discord: Homeworld Universe

Eurogamer Forums Shut Down September 10, 2021


Hi gang,

I am sorry to say that we are going to turn off access to the forum on 10th September 2021.

The forum has been a long-standing part of Eurogamer, and at its peak welcomed thousands of active contributors each day.

Sadly, times change and the way people communicate also has changed.

Traditional forums are no longer a popular place for people to come together to talk, and have been replaced in popularity with more modern community platforms like Discord, Twitter, and Twitch.

Due to this, our forum community has declined over the years to the point where there are only a handful of people left actively using the forum.

Bethesda Forums Shut Down May 24, 2021


After many years of fostering a thoughtful and passionate community on the official Bethesda forums, we have made the decision to sunset the forums on Bethesda.net. When the forums first started on Bethsoft.com, they were a great place for everyone to discuss amazing games, share stories, and come together with similar interests. The forums have seen many changes over the years, and we’ve enjoyed seeing our community grow and evolve alongside Bethesda and all of our games. Now, though, with the numerous ways people are communicating, we feel the time is right to move away from the forums and chat with you where you prefer to be.

To continue our direct relationships with our communities, we will be moving our conversations from the Bethesda.net forums to our official Discord Servers. We will also continue to have our Community teams visible on Reddit and our social channels, and our Support team will be able to address your issues and concerns with the Help Portal. (Please note, this transition only affects the forums on Bethesda.net. For our ESO community, the ESO forums are operated separately and will remain as they are.)

Bioware Forums Shut Down August 26, 2016


After great consideration, we are closing down the BioWare forums, effective August 26, 2016. The Star Wars: The Old Republic forums will continue to operate; however, our public boards for Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and legacy BioWare titles will no longer be available.

This wasn’t an easy decision.

Our players are important to us. Your feedback, stories, and love for our games drive and inspire us.

In the past, our forums were the only way we could speak to you directly. They allowed our developers to talk with fans, and gave our players the opportunity to talk with each other about our games. But with the rise of social media and geek culture, there have never been more ways for us to connect.

Now we can travel around the world, meeting with you face-to-face at events like PAX, SDCC, and even shows in our own backyard. We can share stories with you on the go, giving you a look behind the scenes on sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.

Rotoworld Forums Closed Down July 7, 2023

I'm sorry to see another forum fall. I have been directly impacted by too many forum closures, but this feels like it couldn't have been any worse due to the timing of it.  If you found this post, I'm building out Fan Clubs to be a replacement for forums when this happens, or for members who never found adequate replacements for forums.

If you want to tell me what would be needed to build an ideal replacement, I'd love to collaborate and get something ready to roll fairly quickly. I'll also be looking for club leaders to moderate and essentially lead this club if anybody is interested in taking the reins at some point.

Let me know if you have any questions if you'd like to give Fan Clubs a go.

Pro Sports Daily Forums Shut Down July 24, 2023

It's another sad day as we see another forum set to close. Members were only given a four-day notice with all content set to become inaccessible after the closure.

Seeing as the content over there heavily overlaps with what we're aiming to streamline here at Fan Clubs, members have a home here if you're looking for a new community.


Message from the Pro Sports Daily staff:

After careful consideration and evaluation, we have made the decision to shut down the Pro Sports Daily platform effective July 24, 2023.

We want to express our deepest gratitude to those who contributed to making this website what it was. Your engagement, feedback, and enthusiasm have been the driving force behind our success.

As we prepare to wind down our operations, we want to ensure a smooth transition for our users. Here are a few important details:

Closure date: Our website will remain accessible until July 23, 2023. After this date, all services, features, and content will no longer be available.

Your data: Please be ensured that all personal data stored in your profile will be permanently deleted once the website closes.

Continue the conversation: We invite all members of the PSD community to join the active forum community at our sister site, SportsbookReview.com.

Thank you, once again, for your contributions to Pro Sports Daily.


Pro Sports Daily Management
