'''Facepunch Forums''' are forums run by game development studio Facepunch. As of April 6, 2019, the forums claim "433,765 registered users have made 32,593,834 posts in 757,000 threads". The forums' owners have previously signaled a potential shutdown in late 2018 in a {{URL|https://garry.tv/2018/10/18/forum-downtime/|blog post}}. On 11 June 2019, the forums briefly went offline, redirecting to the replacement community knockout.chat instead. This redirect was removed again after an hour or two, but it appears that the forums might shut down entirely within 24 hours of that resurrection.
