Labpunch prior to shutdown, October 2017.

Labpunch, also known as Newpunch, FP 2.0 or simply the new forums, was a completely new forum website written by garry, revealed in early 2017.[1] vBulletin was not used at all, and several features, including ratings were missing upon beta launch. Users were required to register new accounts using a Facebook or Twitter account. Avatars were locked to a 16x16 pixel canvas with a limited color palette, and can not be animated. Gold Membership did not exist in any capacity.

The project was discontinued by garry in October 2017, in favor of the New Sites Forum.[2]
