Around March 2021, Google AdSense canceled their advertisement service for Gizmo’s Freeware for unexplained reasons. With that income breaking away, the cost for running the site could not be covered anymore. The site itself presented several technical challenges too, that could not be resolved in the existing environment. With a heavy heart, the management team had to announce the shut down of the site by mid of July 2021.

The site was taken down and a farewell page was posted instead. Many comments were made on that page, expressing how sad the shut down was and asking whether there was any way to keep the site alive.

Encouraged by these messages, the management team decided to regroup and come up with a new concept that will keep Gizmo’s legacy alive but that also marks a fresh start: Gizmo’s Best.

It is now managed by George “Sundance”, Jojo, Glyn “Midnight Cowboy” and Rhiannon. The four of them were part of Gizmo’s management team for many years.

Gizmo’s Best is all new and yet, continues with the best of Gizmo’s Freeware. A new site has been built on modern architecture bringing back popular content from Gizmo’s Freeware but also adding new stuff to serve our community.

Best regards,
Your Gizmo’s Best Team

Good news indeed!  :-*

Imagine if they had a few extra volunteers, then they could put up a forum.

It's a pretty decent start and the new looks are very good!  :up:
