Closing down the VSCodeTips community site

Hi friends, in case you don't know, I'm the creator of the VSCodeTips community.

I created this community when I was still working at Forem, the software that powers this community, and continued on after I left for a new role elsewhere.

I'm still a huge fan of VS Code, but I haven't been able to dedicate the time I wanted to this community. It's still growing, but as a one-person operation with some volunteer moderators, it's been tough to cultivate the community the way I wanted to.

All that to say, thank you so much for joining the community, but unfortunately, I will be shutting it down at the end of October.

If you'd like to download all your data from the site, head to https://community.vscodetips.com/settings/account to download your data.

Scroll down to the export content section and check Request and export of your content, then click the Submit Data Request button.

After October 31st at 10 pm UTC, everything will be wiped and taken down, so if there are things you'd like to keep, I highly encourage you to download them.

Thanks again to everyone that joined the community and to the volunteer moderators.

Nick

Owh sad news, when a post about VSCode is written on DEV Community, I tell him to put the same post here.

@nickytonline do you create weekly updates like on this Forem on DEV Community about VSCode news/pro tips ?

Yes I do. I have my VS Code tips series](dev.to/vscodetips/vs-code-tip-of-t...) on DEV as well.

Curious to know how big is this community? Can we repurpose this for something else if audience are interested?
