The Gaslamp Bazaar is No More!

After much deliberation, we have decided to close the SteamPunk Magazine forum down for the foreseeable future.

Between the spambots and the technical difficulties, it has gotten increasingly difficult to maintain the Gaslamp Bazaar over the last year or so. We tried to make forums somewhere different and interesting place to hang out, but the fact of the matter is that we just don’t have the time to make them something really special any more. As such, the time has come for us to move on, and focus on other things.

Many thanks to all the people who have frequented the Bazaar over the years and made it generally an awesome place to hang out. Thanks also to T-Kew, who has spent a lot of his time moderating and generally looking after it.

For now, we hope to be seeing more comments and discussion on the articles here in our blog. In the future, we may even be looking into a registration system that will allow people to sign up for accounts, and even submit articles directly to our website.

  4. To whom it may concern,

    My name is Bobby King and I live in Clarksville, Tennessee. I was just posting this to inform the readers of this site that in Clarksville at Austin Peay State University, we are piloting a sculpture class dedicated to the art of steampunk. As far as we know it is the first accredited class of its kind. Also we are having a steampunk meetup/art show for when the class is done to showcase our work. It is Wednesday, July 9th. Any other questions just email me at metalmelderman@gmail.com

    “Steampunk mummified faeries” too. Weird.

    C’mon – you know it’s cool, right?
