I was wondering if any of you knew why this site is called "file front". It seems like it would having a different name that had the word "game" in it. Just wonderin.:cya:

Well, File is because we provide 'files' eg, mods, patches demo's.

Front, well, Im not sure, but it may be something like frontlines. The front is where all the action is, so hence, FileFront is where all the best file action is.

Just my theory.

gamingforums.com is only for the forums themselves, not the whole of the FileFront network.

FileFront is primarily focused on game-related files, and many games are war games. And in wars, there are 'fronts' - the point on a battlefield where each side meet. 'Front' could also refer to a shop front, or the 'counter' - the place you receive goods. If an FF management user stumbles upon this thread they are likely to know.

As for gamingforums.com, that goes way back into the complicated stuff. This forum is made up of about ten others (well, slight exadduration), and gamingforums.com was one of the merged domains. We still use gamingforums.com to maintain a degree of independance from FileFront, as these forums aren't actually ran by people on the FileFront payroll - just hosted by them and with their logo.

Actually I think the Forums are made up of 4 other ones. But, we should be glad FF is hosting us, or else where would these great Forums be?

Presumably, because it's a front for files. Gamefiles would make sense also, but, it's too late for that -- plus, it isn't just game files now that they have free file hosting, is it?
