Shame that it has died.
- trades and giveaways were more frequent back then and many people weren't aware of scammers.
- Gog never did anything to moderate or protect the forum in the past.
- it was way too easy to create alts (some even used bots), so it was an endless hopeless battle.
- we had no 100% sure way to verify claims, without Gog helping. Even reports could be fake\forged in theory.
- trolls plus misinformed or disagreeing people started criticizing or attacking the OP and the other contributors.
So, the thing eventually died.
