Thank you admins, mods and everybody that has been posting all this years. I have learned a lot visiting these forums, got to know (not personally, but still) many amazingly talented artists with a variety of different styles and ideas of how to tackle pixel art. I wouldn't know half of what I know today if it weren't for Pixelation and its users.

I do prefer forums as a medium to post art-related stuff in general, pixel art in particular. For me, not even Discord comes close in terms of usability no matter what they do there. Conversations just get lost.
Twitter is just bad. Sure more people will potentially see your stuff, but that's really not important to me, personally.

In regards to spammers, I have been helping some friends for I believe more than a decade now in checking for new registrations and that has kept them away. Of course it's a much smaller forum than Pixelation (or at least I think it is), but it has worked for us.
I also wonder if changing the forum engine from SMF to some other wouldn't also help solve this particular problem...

But anyways, I'll keep coming here while the forums are still up and new posts can be made, and I'll keep an eye on Discord because I have to use it in a daily basis.

Thanks again.

I rise from the deep dark abyss of the past to pay my respects to the greatest of all pixel art communities. You will be missed.

Goodbye Pixelation!  This place was such a formative place for me and many others as budding pixel artists.  Thanks for keeping it running as long as you have.

A genuine shame. This place was a priceless resource in my career as a pixelartist. I remember when I was first starting out stumbling on this place felt like I'd found a community where you could get professional level art critiques for free. It truly felt like my dojo and I use the job board here to find work to this day. I wonder, can anyone save Pixelation?
