Seems filefront the hugely successful file sharing site is to close down on March 30, 2009.

Its been the gaming communities favoured site for uploading files from gaming videos to gaming mods, now it will be no more.

For me this is a tragic loss as the filefront community was the backbone of the modders everywhere.

It will be sadly missed by thousands.

I was waiting for someone to say that, yeh i can understand what you mean but the majority of the user base is teenagers so making money from adverts was a big problem for them.

But i meant successful as in many hits per day.

over 8 million unique visitors a month, which is a seriously large traffic volume. If the owners haven't been able to attract advertisers with that kind of traffic there's something badly wrong with the business model.

Hugely busy it may be, but "hugely successful" it is not.
