I'm guessing most ppl are either on the sto.com boards, or they've posted here for a year and nothing happened... so they got tired of waiting for STO and went to do something else.

Well shame on them.   Hopefully activity will increase as the  release date gets nearer.

I'm thinking people waited years for STO, were disappointed with PE's attempt, were intriqued by Cryptics buying it, posted a lot, then saw what cryptic was doing and said "the heck with it all" and left.

to bad, i hope they come back.

I bet we see em all again on opening day or shortly thereafter.
I agree with your assumptions totally.

  LOL never expected to see so many posts in this thread, I'm glad though. Being able to chat through the shoutbox is one thing, but to a casual site lurker ....if they miss a conversation there, then there is no permanent record of it and the chat history goes only so far back. By posting more on the site there is an easily accessible record for people to read and hence more likely people will sign on to the site and take part in the debates. This is why I started this thread in the first place.  Granted we may not agree with someones post, but that is part and parcel of debate after all is it not?
   My only fear in all this is that should this site become so popular, that the fanbois start coming in and flame all the good people here down and off the site for good, I would feel really bad if I had a hand in this happening. 
  But for the time being at least, I've very much enjoyed everyones company here, even when I've found reason to strongly dissagree with someone, which is rare.
  I've posted in a number of forums before, but no site has ever felt like a 'home' like this one has, and it is only appropriate to thank Zach and Kinneas here, for such a great site for all of us here can come to and enjoy and enjoy each others company.... thanks guys!

  Keep on trekking!  :startrek021:

Just came here recently.

Mostly been making my Gorn fleet (soooo many contradictions on info though, makes my eyes spin)

I also sdon't like saying things twice normally (ask my husband) so if I answer a question on the main boards, and it is here as well I won't answer it again.

But maaaaybe I might change my mind (as women are apt to do)

 Welcome to the site CherryTerri, always good to have more of the 'other' faction here. =)

Your own Gorn fleet, eh. That must be a handful. And, if I may ask...

Why the Gorn?
Why the Gorn?

Hm ... thanks for the welcome!  And why the Gorn ...

Well, I've always liked races that are the "under dogs" and seeing one in tthe TOS I got hooked.  If Gorn wasn't around and Romulan was I'd choose the latter.

But I've had enough of Starfleet fleets and I don't do a Klingon very well.  With a Gorn I can let out my primitive side! ...

That and it reminds me of my sister ... hehe

Welcome, CherryTerri. I sim with a Gorn at SB118, and find his posts down right interesting. :)
