Shouldn't bother people with other interests. Much better than those situations we see from time to time here on HA where a lot of posts are coming out for more popular codecs but on issues and with a quality which are quite questionable sometimes.
I'm not sure if one month of inactivity is enough to warrant removal of a forum. What is the rush to proclaim it dead? If it remains inactive till the end of the year, perhaps that is the time to start thinking about such measures.
But if the forums get a clean-up I suggest looking at the Digital A/V forums too, there the situation is worse than for MPC.
... MPC has no developer anymore, ... and no reactivity at all. Posting an issue with the format becomes pointless because nothing changes in fact. ....
mpc (...) is dead
there's no need for any sentimentmpc is good, was usable, lacks development, is deadeasy, don't make it complicated

I encode all my music in MPC since 2002.(...)Many people use this codec because it's the best choice to quality/bitrate.
But sayin' that MPC is dead???I encode all my music in MPC since 2002.First in q5 quality then q6.
I hope that since 2002 you took the time to read hydrogenaudio TOS, especially the 8th one. Or if you have your own interesting listening tests, do forget to share them
Tests?Comparing MPC q5, MPC q6, Lame MP3 standard done in 2004: MP3 - Too much bass in headphones, speakers make strange noises when deep bass is played.MPC q5 - Everything beautiful but...MPC q6 - Stereo effect is wider, compared to WAV I couldn't see the differences.Tested on trance music and Clannad - Herne.If this codes suits me why search other. //End of my OT
MPC q6 - Stereo effect is wider, compared to WAV I couldn't see the differences.
