Re: Is it time to go beyond the rim?

I am heartened so see so many friends that I thought had already passed beyond the rim.

Administratively, this isn't a burdensome place. There are a few mods that come around and tend to their forums that still have some life. If something gets a bit strange, they know how to contact me to come sort it out.

I am loathe to shut it down myself. This was truly the first forum where I felt truly at home. And while I have shown up elsewhere (primarily at Antony's other, much busier site, TrekBBS), it hasn't been "the same."

Antony essentially said to me that it doesn't have to be imminent. It may be time, however, to send out a broadcast notice to see who would like to have a view of the place. As Jan said, there are many wonderful conversations stored here. I believe Antony mentioned it could be all archived so that it could be accessed or restored if desired.

Thanks all for your feedback. It warms the heart of this OLD first one.

Re: Is it time to go beyond the rim?

I still come to B5TV pretty much every day, but that is really just to Babbleon, the forum that I moderate, and the one that seems to have the most activity. I do keep my eyes out for suspicious activity in any forum, but that is pretty much non-existant.

Re: Is it time to go beyond the rim?

Markas or RW, FYI, a few folks over on JMSnews have mentioned that they tried to sign in or register here and weren't able. Can somebody check the registration mechanism and see if it needs to be kicked?

Thanks,
Jan

That would have to be Markas. I don't have the power to do that.

See you there!

I'm not sure if I found the email, it's been busy at work this week. But I did pop back in and I think I figured it out, I did post a note. Thanks! No matter what happens to our beloved B5TV, I'll have a bit of a link to all things JMS.

Clearly, there is a problem with our registration system. It is not sending registration emails (the ones that you have to "push the button" to be allowed to post). I'll look into this.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Jan.

Re: Is it time to go beyond the rim?

I think the nature of this place(with a focus on individual episodes) tends to mean that activity will go up and down. if you have people doing a rewatch of the series you might get a significant degree of activity over a few months and then fall back to very little.

If it did go I wonder could there be the possible of shifting the existing episode discussions to a JMS subforum? those are quite unique discussions in that they often go back years and are rather less conversational.

Re: Is it time to go beyond the rim?

I tend not to do online communities/message boards/Facebook group anymore as I find myself not really getting on with them, but I would miss this place if it went beyond the rim. There are some good conversations and useful info among its threads.

I think B5 continues to have a lot of relevance to our modern world and it would be nice to keep this place open to discuss it. If not, I'd at least pop back to participate in a grand finale thread before saying goodbye to the forum.

Re: Is it time to go beyond the rim?

Though it take a thousand years... I think B5 will eventually be redone/renewed or given a movie, and whether that does or does not happen I shall remain to check in every now and then until the lights are turned off... or are replaced, and new paint is added to the walls.

I have enjoyed the time that i've spent lurking/posting here (mostly lurking), and would like to thank those who have manned AND held the line all these years.
