What happened to MacNN News, nothing new is getting posted

MacNN News closed down as of July 1, 2016. We do not know the reason, but low profitability is a suspect. Ad rates both per-view and per-click have decreased greatly in the past several years, impacting many web sites.

The News site will remain online, with little or no updates, presumably so long as ad revenue pays the server costs.

The Forums will remain online and open as usual, so long as forum ad revenue and residual News ad revenue pays the costs. The costs are thought to be hosting costs and the vB license.

What Users Can Do

• Amazon referral link: Buy crap from Amazon, help the forums (only works for the US store)

• Newegg referral link: Buy crap from Newegg to help the forums.

MacNN Deals helps feed the coffers, so anything you buy from stack social counts.

• Click on interesting ads now and then.

• Tell friends they'll experience good fortune if they visit.

• We're looking into donation options such as Patreon, PayPal, etc. Nothing to announce at this time.
