Here are the details of the closure:
1. Graphic Request Zone close on Oct 7, 2016.
The requests posted before this date will be completed.

2. The forum will close on Nov 1, 2016.


Farewell.

It was a fun journey! You made an amazing forum Mim! Smile sad that it will be closed but it's better to die out at will than slowly and becoming forgotten.
And in no way this was failed!

Please don't. If you need more help, I would be happy to be of service to you all. I really want to keep this alive. I love the tutorials and the graphic school here. Please don't do this to me. I worked really hard on being active. Sad

Hello @catlover,
I am sorry, I really am!   To be honest, the idea of closing popped up a lot sooner. During the summer, as you all know, we went on a short break in hope of a new beginning after our return, but the expected big "boom" of activity just did not come. The shut down date, 01.11, was set a while ago, and since no significant change is noticeable in terms of sign ups - active members - posts - tutorials submitted - in any way, this bitter decision just had to be made.  

I know the past month you've been super active, and I'm grateful for it   , however you can see we are stuck.  You went through many of our topics and could see the lack of content, activity going on in them. I don't see future in what we have now and don't think we should invest more time into this project.  

I am not saying the topic, graphic design, is not a good choice for a forum community, but it should be interpreted and integrated into a forum concept differently than we did. Things just didn't work out for us.  If you have some ideas for a forum for people interested in this topic, give it a go! I had high hopes, but couldn't make it successful, wishing you better luck!    Or just spend that valuable time on improving your skills.

Hello there,
I don't know. Very Happy Just got some e-mails about random people signing up and I got drawn back.

Sad news is, we lost the original corrected version of this mint skin and I couldn't fully restore it. t.t
So for now I have no real plan, outline of a comeback. Smile
