I wonder if we would be able to host the forum, running and funding it ourselves? I and a few other tech savvy nzggers could probably spin up a small ec2 instance on AWS to host the forums, if we had a copy of the database.

Holy sh*t, member since 2008! What a ride it has been! Other than Facebook, this is the only site I checked out several times throughout the day every day. Very sad to hear this place will no longer be.

 

I've added a couple of people on Twitter who have posted their profile here, so if anyone would like to add me as well, feel free to (along with my YT channel).

EDIT: Even after 10 years I have 0 warning points. 1. I do not even know what this means, and 2. How to I rack some up?

2007 yall! God I dont think I can live without this place.

 

What can we do to keep the forum going?

 

Worst case scenario can we do proboards or something?

Damn, I was a lurker from 2005. Had another account that I lost my email and passwords for.. 

 

Gonna miss this one, has been a go-to for a long while.

 

My fondest memories were probably the comments and conversations from Jaz and Stungaf.

Some real laugh-out-loud moments.

 

Not to mention the gamenights.

 

Thanks NZGR.

Been a member for over 5 years and recently hit 8k posts (at least 3 quarters of those were shitposts though). Thanks everyone for putting up with me during my teens back then, recently it has mostly just been lurking everyday. It was fun while it lasted :D ✌️

Just a big thank you to all the team at NZGamer. This is the first website that i really got my teeth into the forums. Some amazing characters over the years a pretty respectful forum. First website that I actually won prizes from. I hope that when the forums close that there is a new home for all the gaming and non gaming chat that occurs in the NZGamer forums. 

 

I don't want to have to go back to that other place

 What other place?

At a guess I'd say either PornHub or GPForums... my pick is on PornHub, conversations not very good over there

I've only been a member since early 2016 so I'm relatively new compared with some of you guys. Used to browse other forums a lot back in the mid 2000s but kinda dropped off them until I joined NZGamer. Just wish I had stumbled across these forums sooner!

 

I check the forums pretty much every day, has become part of my daily browsing habits. Hopefully the forums live on in one form or another. Its a great community here!

Good pick, but to go back implies having left...

Man what a lost I will grieve immensely I love this site from the day I joined. I’ve had so many great discussions in forums, advise, news and reviews in games I have purchased

All the best for the future and just a question is there another gaming site I could join that’s similar to this???

Seems like alot of us here want to try and save NZG if it's possible of course.

 

Maybe if the reason NZG shutting down is funds, I'm sure we can all chip in and keep it going for a while at least but I have a feeling the decision to shut down might be something else?

 

If the reasons to shut down is something we can't help with, I guess we can always set up a website / forum somewhere else if enough people are interested? 

 

As Byskyre said: 

 

I wonder if we would be able to host the forum, running and funding it ourselves? I and a few other tech savvy nzggers could probably spin up a small ec2 instance on AWS to host the forums, if we had a copy of the database.
