On Friday, January 10, 2014, Nerf Mods & Reviews finally decided to stop posting. It’s been an amazing 5 year run, first started off by jerm781. After he decided to stop posting, it was then carried on to the below list of contributors at one point or another.
The site has close to 900 posts (889 to be exact). At the time of this post the site also has 6,860,567 views. That’s an amazing amount for our hobby I would say. I’ve used this site a good amount of times in trying to figure out how to modify blasters, look at internal photos, find deals on Nerf items, and even get Nerf news of my own.
Mike of Tactical Tag, one of the NM&R contributors, decided to give some of his thoughts into explaining the end of posting to the site. Below is a paragraph from his explanation post.
It’s not really any one person’s fault. Nerf Mods & Reviews needed someone full-time to continue things, and everyone we managed to find was already doing something on their own. It still has an obvious impact on the community, what with 5 years of valuable posts on reviews, modifications, and the news that it brought to light. However, it’s really just a time capsule now of a great era for Nerf blogs. Nerf Mods & Reviews was one of my “Big 3” that I used to reference so frequently… and one by one they are becoming more a part of the past than the future. Urban Taggers did it right. SG Nerf hasn’t admitted they’re out yet.
Nerf Mods & Reviews will remain open as a sort of “time capsule” to allow Nerfers both past and present to continue to use the resources such as internals and mod guides.
