GDC is Shutting Down

Recommended Posts

Khaleesi.

Hello everyone, 

It is with an extremely heavy heart that we announce that GDC will be permanently shut down by the end of the week. 

Over the last 14 and a half years, GDC has grown to be an integral part of the Green Day family. Unfortunately, with rising server costs and more frequent periods of inactivity, the forum is no longer sustaining itself.  Even with user donations, we have been finding it harder and harder to make ends meet each month. 

Because of this, we have made the very difficult decision to shut the forum down. 

We would like to thank everyone for their support over the years. We wouldn’t have grown into this amazing community without you all! We hope that you can use this thread to share your favourite memories of the forum and celebrate a life well lived! 

Rage & Love, 

The Mod Team

I am actually sad about this, it kinda feels like I am losing a family.  

So many memories and friendships are tied to this site, can't imagine a world without GDC.  Really going to miss this place 😭

We're serious! We can't keep the site running anymore. It's so unfortunate. :(

We don't have the funds to cover the next bill, we have been struggling since late 2018. ☹️

It is quite suspiciously April 1st, but that being said, lack of funding in grassroots internet projects is an increasingly relevant problem (Wikipedia for example). The sad truth is, people will do all kinds of things so that they don’t have to pay, even by giving all kinds of personal data (for “free” wi-fi for example). So, even though I doubt it, this kinda thing actually seems scaringly possible...

Hermione is here often enough, we don't have to wait on that apathetic owner who can't even bother with his own dying website

I say just change our pics to Billie's ass again.  I can't even remember last year's prank due to that one.

We thought about one last prank.  But sadly the absence of our commander in chief is a problem and is part of the reason for the need to shut down the forum.

I'm going to cry. This is awful. I've met so many of you here and had such a wonderful time.. I wish it didn't have to be this way. 

Would a gofundme save the forum?

I am definitely suspicious but in the case where this IS real, I'll miss everyone so much.

Also if anyone wants to stay in touch you can come into the GDC discord i made this month :lol:
