Pfft. They drove everybody off of the forum and now they want us to use Facebook and Twitter? Sorry I don't use those "social media" sites. I refuse too.

3 days left. Interesting discussions about migrating to other boards.

Well, I guess it's pretty much dead now. Earlier today you could still make posts, but I see now the whole thing is read only. All of the options to start a thread or reply to one are locked. Wonder how long it will be before they pull it down now?

Candy was told about 2 weeks. It'll take about that long to separate the boards code from the domain. Jeff shut the board off just after I made the last post.

I feel kind of sorry for GW though.

GW? Do you mean the Gate world site people were purposing as a replacement?

Ok, but why do you feel sorry for them? Isn't an influx of new members good for them? ..... Or were you just making a funny that went right over my head?

Most of the members of GW came from Syfy. But its a themed board. No classic Stargate, not much to talk about. The fact the upcoming Stargate trilogy is being reimagined, leaves the entire site useless. So what are they going to discuss?

Well, I've barely looked at it. Just the page your link takes me to, but it looks like they have a section for non Stargate shows. But as I said I've only perused that one page and I've no idea how many new members they got from Styfy either... so who knows. I'd think that if a lot of people did migrate over, then that general scifi section could become the main attraction of the site.

Candy let me know it went offline today. Dunno if deleted or not, but really doesn't matter, as it can no longer be accessed.

Yep, it's gone...




Kind of sad.

I was just going to post today. I should rework this board into a scifi board. Wonder if we could get some of the people back. But your right they did drive a lot of people away including me. To bad to because I used to love posting there. Really I blame one person. MBG. Sorry but she drove a lot of people away and should have never been a mod.
