It generated and still does more traffic and posts than the MMORPG forum.

Then the mmorpg forum must be dead.. And I didn't nvnews was worried about hits to sub-forums unrelated to hardware. I understand the mentality behind it, just a bit surprised. Obviously the people who frequent here and keep this place going have no say.

It's all about the money, honey.

More page impressions = more chances of ads getting clicked

Because first and foremost this is a HARDWARE site, the focus on business and traffic should be hits and clicks based on HARDWARE.

Secondly, I don't see the game giving them that much business, considering it's 6 month's old, and pretty much dead, where do you draw the line? I'm mean technically speaking, 19 years from now someone is gonna google crysis, so it stays for 19 years or what?

The sub-forum obviously isn't going anywhere, so rather than turning this into an argument, I say a mod just close this thread. Failed attempt, I accept the defeat.

well close it then adn we post screens from crysis in the regular screenshot thread as maps will be prodused new tweaks and new shots

so close this thread
iīm pretty sure with or without this tread crysis will be discussed in game forum anyway as people still play it

thatīs my thoughts so no matter if this thread getīs closed shots of crysis will emerge anyways adn questions and stuff at least what i think

I agree. However, look at forums like NeoGAF, HardForum and such. They receive so much traffic. Forums are a great way to SEO-optimise your site. There's only so much hardware/software you can review.

I wouldn't know. My best bet is maybe 1 year?

For what it's worth, I thought this was a good suggestion.
