We know it's crap. We are working on it.

Knockout is a new forum designed and programmed from scratch by user Inacio. Initially started at the beginning of the 2018 Shutdown Crisis under the name "Notpunch",[1] the software gradually obtained many features similar to those of both the vB4 Forums and the New Sites Forum.

By late February 2019, when the census occurred, nary a comment had come from Garry on the topic of the forum's fate, despite his initial comments pointing towards a conclusion on the matter "early next year".[2] Around the same time, Hezzy organized the 2019 Facepunch Census,[3][4] a departure from previous censuses as it concentrated more on the forum proper than on demographics. One section of the census concentrated on the idea of planning a new forum, with one question being proposing names for such a forum. With the feedback from the census, and some further discussion afterwards, a concensus was reached on the name Knockout, a clear nod to the Facepunch name.

Later, by the 5th of March, 2019, Hezzy supplied Inacio with the domain name knockout.community, and on that day, Knockout entered open alpha.[5] Several moderators from Facepunch, including Hezzy, Taliyah and Craptasket agreed to moderate the new forums if Facepunch shuts down their forums, and plans have been made to jump to Knockout at a moment's notice if the forums suddenly shut down.
