If I'm ever to drop forums from my usual rotation, it would be these:

http://ecoop.ucoz.com/forum/
Still like going through it for some rare UT/Unreal surprises, but it is VERY dead.

http://www.unrealtexture.com/General/We ... /index.php
Surprisingly even deader that the first one. Only activity it's seen in a year is my updates to the screenshot thread.

http://militaristic.org/Forum/
The deadest of them all.

I'm kinda toying with dropping a forum from my rotation:
http://unreal-mayhem.com/nuke/index.php

It's a great forum, with great downloads and whatnot... but they changed the format around December and ever since the forum has become a major memory cruncher. It's not always worth waiting the minute and a half after you click a new post to actually wait to read it.

Even longer if you try to reply to something.

Oh, by the way... this is a good example of an acceptable double post. My last one here was in January.

Not only that, but a good example on where necro-bumping is also acceptable, since more useful info was added to the topic.

Had to remove one by necessity.

http://militaristic.org/Forum/
It doesn't exist anymore.

In light of UT-Files going the way of the dinosaur, I guess this means I should update my forum list by removing this:

Taking http://www.prounreal.org/forums/index.php off the list as it looks like the forum isn't there anymore.

http://militaristic.org is still up. Try informing them the forum is down.
http://www.prounreal.org/forums/ works fine for me

UT-Files is now part of the"Undead" but necromancy will allow you to rummage around in the corpse.

Weird, it wasn't there all morning but now I see it too. I was barely going there anymore anyway...

militaristic.org's forum hadn't shown any activity in nearly a year. Big drive to start off with but it fizzled out and died shortly after that.

Well, your userpic does kinda look like a ghoul.

Every so often a forum goes down, a few hours to a couple days, and you just have to be patient. Other times it's just that a forum's time is over, and it's just never gonna come back.

I dunno what's up with unreal-mayhem(dot)com/nuke/index.php but it's a doozy:

Been getting that reaction the last couple times I tried to go there.

Whatever it is, I think I'm gonna avoid that forum for about a month or so. Not like it's the most active one out there or anything. It's just really pretty.

I had to edit your link.

Yup same here, AVAST also registers it as threat. Multiple threats actually, perhaps they got hacked and someone put a little worm into their software.
