    All links to Facepunch forum posts now redirect to Knockout. I guess we'll have to start using Waybackmachine, the forums contained tons of helpful threads on TF2 modding. Amen.

    Are you talking about the old forums? I mean, the new ones are right here: https://forum.facepunch.com/f/

    EDIT: Oh I see now. Garry is shutting it down soon.

    An archive of the entire forums from April 9th 2019 exists, so you don't need to worry about lost threads

    Honestly as far as TF2 goes, Facepunch was "closed" a while back. Almost all the really good talent -- Void, NeoDement, Square, and all the dozens of other item, art, and map creators, etc, etc -- stopped regularly posting there, and the TF2 discussion thread turned into the same 10 people arguing the same old tired things with each other over and over.

    Pretty sad, in its heyday Facepunch was incredible for TF2 content.

    Facepunch nowadays is a far cry from what it was back in its glory days.

    Not public (yet)

    Archiveteam have confirmed the entire forum has been saved though, not sure when it will be made public and whether it saved any images

    Archive is up: https://web.archive.org/web/20190612000106/https://forum.facepunch.com/

    Archiveteam says 99.9% of the site was saved

    Images actually still exist on the facepunch site, the preview is broken however. To get the image urls and be able to view them, click the top right button of a post and click View Code block or something like that, then grab the URLs and open in a new tab

    You might want to download any useful images you come across, who knows how long those will exist on the facepunch site
