Apart from the problems of moderators and new accounts not being activated - which are not insubstantial ones! - there's a sense of self-fulfilling prophecy playing out here in the decline and wasting of the forum.
But then again, I guess all times have their halcyon days and in the months leading up to the film and immediately afterwards it was great.
But folks move on, the movie passes and then before you know it the Forum feels like 'a house with all the children gone'! Until we boot up for the sequel there's little that can be done - especially if we can't get new members onboard to add to things.
