There used to be a message when you tried to get to the forum saying that it was down for server maintenance but now all I get is a not found message as if the site does not exist.

I know how you feel. I have been away from here for nearly 3 weeks apart from a few brief visits when I have been at the office. If we do not get back up and running soon we will probably be losing members.

AND losing traffic...we have lost our momentum and it will definitely be a slow summer with no sgu eps to bitch about.  Although i wonder how much of a shake-up with TPTB is going to happen...is RCC just the first???

oh it is confirmed RCC is leaving-- mallozzi had it on his blog... i have "heard through the grapevine" from someone "in the know" that the higher ups at Syfy channel weren't too happy with the sgu ratings and since sgu was RCC's baby...maybe he is taking the fall.  Predictions at syfy are the show will be a'changing...maybe more like old-style sg1? who knows.......

That should give us a chance to see how hypocritical a lot of the members at gayteworld are then. Many of them were squeeing over how good sgu is because it was nothing like the other two shows. Perhaps they will join our ranks if it changes too much?

Aaaaaaaaah!!!!!  I check faithfully almost every day, and still no love.  I tried going over to IMDb to see what people are talking about on that SGU board.  From what I can tell, there is no intelligent or realistic conversation about SGU happening whatsoever.  It was driving me crazy.  So, I registered to this older forum just to scream.

Has he given any reasons for leaving? as JM's blog doesnt give anything away realy.

Im thinking that syfy and the execs want sgu to change style and rcc said like "NO" lets see this through then the writting was on the wall for him,maybe. I wonder if RCC will give a message to the fans or maybe an interview just before season 2 starts (call me synical)

I dont think it reflects well on sgu, do you? from my pov it seems he tried to do what he wanted but it still didnt inspire him or fullfill him enough to carry on with it. after all he was one of the main reasons for it happnin to leave before season 2 has even finished filming....not good.

I wonder of JM will move up the ranks now? and if sgu turns into a carbon copy of sga id much rather watch the sga cast painting walls than the sgu cast blowing shit up.

and finaly, they do bring it more inline with sg1 & sga it will be clearer to see the lack of chemistry with the cast. imho it was the cast of both previous shows who lifted the words in the script and made me beleve them and route for them. sometimes the cast was the only thing that got me through a badly thought out episode.

you've been reading my mind...this does NOT reflect well on sgu.  if it had been due to illness (or family illness) that would ahve been in an announcem,ent...but having JM post it first on his BLOG!?!?!?!? well that says "kick in the teeth" to me!  I am betting the network or mgm will try to retool sgu to be more like sg1 or sga (despite having eps already filmed...nothing stopping them from reshooting a few scenes here and there  )but that is merely putting lipstick on the pig that is SGU...won['t fool any discriminating fans.  it was the chemistry of sg1 and sga that helped the cast rise above some bad writing (at times) and the sgu cast is sadly lacking in chemistry (and talent!) so the show will STILL fail!

Okay,

Still no progress or word from Overmind. I still hope all is okay with him.  The last email that I got from the Webmaster said that he was having some trouble getting a hold of Overmind.  I told him that I'll stay out of this and let him work with Overmind to resolve the issue.  He'll let us know when he hears something.  

He has also now linked the "enter" the forum option to this forum, and I believe added a link on the main page of the website as well.  This way people won't be directed to the new forum until it is back up again.

Cheers,

Atlantis.

So this is where everyone is....
Just curious
Would it be easier to change SGU or bring back Atlantis?

I think that both are pretty impossible right about now.  SGU is so far gone that I don't see how it can be saved.  There is too much to change for any changes to work.  And, they let the Atlantis cast go for too long to be able to get them to come back to doing a show - and that's only if the producers wanted to bring back SGA, which they don't.  It would be admitting their failure with SGU, and they just can't do that.

Can someone who is not a probie on GW pass this along please

Here's what I want to comment on:

 Re: SyFy/Nielsen SGU Rating Predictions/Discussions
I hope 9/8C so sanctuary can be at 10/9c which won't interfere with my ncis' .

This was posted by skydiver in the ratings thread on GW. I just wanted to ask if SGU was on at the same time as NCIS, which one s/he would watch live and why.

As I am a GW probie, my post has err "not appered as yet" and I doubt it will. ASnyone want to help a probie out?

Cheers

We only know at the moment, that SGU will be shown on Tuesday. It is still unknown at what time in the evening. Skydiver is just hoping, that it won't be at the same time than one of the NCIS series. As far as I know, NCIS airs at 8pm and NCIS LA at 9pm. The best place for SGU would probably be 10pm, because the concurrence is weaker then and more female orientated.

Skydiver doesnt watch SGU she stated that in the linked thread a few pages back. she said she stopped watching after ep 10. Sky imo is concerned about sanctuary being opposite nicis thats all.

Ah, one forum is back *kneelandpraytothegodsofforums*. Don't know why but I didn't match in the old forums. This is the first time that it works. I've missed you all.

Overmind One is missing? Oh, I hope it's only a technical problem and he is well.

So, what happened to TPTB? Cooper will leave sgu Mallozzi told yesterday. Mh, maybe the best decision he could take after the failing of the first season. Weren't there rumors about his leaving a few month ago? I think I remember something like that. Mh, I'm sorry but I'm not worry about his decision. He wants to go - okay, could I carry the suitcase for him to bring him faster to his car? One's out - three to go.
