SGU•S IS online. Problem is it's time to move out of mom's basement.

I hope when the site surfaces that the concentration isn't solely on Stargate (a comatose franchise) and moves on to covering sci-fi shows in general.

With a domain name like www.sgusucks.com, I dont see how that is possible. But after this fiasco with the other site being created, wont the same problem be happening with people not having joined the new domain? What a mess.

That could be avoided if the sgusucks.com domain pointed to the new domain with explanation.  And for gods sakes put up a clear terms and conditions related disclaimer for your own benefit. ;-)

When SGoo came out the first site I went to rant on was Jump the Shark as many shows are considered there to have jumped first episode. But JTS was bought out by TV Guide to steal hits and was toned down basically neutered making it useless other than getting me back there because I had an active login (familiar story?).

I'm sure SGU won't be the last B-A-D TV show. I wonder if that's where SGUºS future lies. Letting people vent about shit TV shows that show up. I think the market for discussing whether STNG S3 was superior to DS9 S2 is about through. How many times can you say the same thing over and over on how many different websites? I'm pretty well done with that sideshow.

My 2 pound sterling. Something to consider.

So any idea as to when SGUºS will be back up again in VBulletin form (complete with accounts, settings & posts?)

I think that your idea is by definition included within the remit of a forum where you are not censored/deleted/banned/driven away simply because your opinions/beliefs do not match with that of the forum owners (or the powers influencing them). Such sites seem v rare, I guess because in a drive to increase traffic and look more "pro" most forums will seek some form of "official" link with studios/networks/etc and we all have witnissed what happens in that scenario!

Now that SPOO is cancelled & the sets are due to be struck (info courtesy of OM1 & GF) I hope that this forum, when it is back up & running fully, has the same kind of traffic as before due to having the bonus of the SGUºS URL, but with the same openness, fairness & respectfulness (to SGU fans aswell) which was always offered at the old SGUºS but was, ultimately, not upheld by all, & for us to become seen as less militant - the battle is won, the war is ended & we can now lay down arms, which I think most, if not all of us here have.  

It would also be good to go along with a name change (linked to SGUºS) so that we can benefit from having the redirection from the old URL to a newer, less hostile one & also be more open to newcomers.  To be honest, I always understood the idea of the "Flame-free Zone" but never really liked the fact that it segregated the forum, aswell as discussions, into 2 camps & that having the majority of the boards as "Free Speech Zones" was merely an excuse for some posters to unnecessarily harangue SGU fans & was an opportunity for trolls to come & cause all sorts of shit.  Maybe we could experiment with the idea of closing the Flame-Free Zone & making the forum "SGU Fan-Friendly" across the board to see if it improves traffic & also deters trolls........... like I said, it doesn't have to be permanent & it wouldn't mean coddling "squeedrones", just a mutual respect for all posters.  Just an idea.

I agree, now is the time to move forwards.

I've just been out on a live fire exercise between Sunday & friday so I missed all of the goings-on here & there.  It was cold & it was miserable but it was kind of fun......... kind of.  But honestly, I'm glad to be back & with full, internet access yay!

The drama was exhausting here.  But I am glad you enjoyed your live fire (sounds dangerous to a klutz like me  ) but am glad to see you back here as well.

I have heard tell that a new hosting service has been secured and that there will soon be a new VBulletin forum to play in.

Hey welcome back Dude!  I think that a less hostile & more Stargate/sci-fi orientated name would be called for......... not more of the same.
