Win-Raid closing announcement popup

On November 14, 2021, founder of Win-Raid Forum, Dieter, announced in a pop-up that the forum will be closing in the near future (probably at the end of 2021). A post soon after the popup was added gives some reasons for the the forum's closure, and affirms that it will be closing "at the end of the year".[1] On 2021-11-21, it was announced that a plan for migrating the forum was being developed[2]; this was confirmed again on 2021-12-20 with the addition that the forum would not close at the end of the year[3]. On 2022-04-14, it was announced that the forum would migrate to a Discourse instance hosted by Level1Techs in the near future.[4] A redirect to that Discourse instance was put in place on 2022-05-13.
