If its a problem all they have to do is change the site name and reorganize the existing forums. Then add new ones.

I doubt that it's going away anytime soon. They have contracts on the cast for two more films, and they will be using this forum as a promotional tool for the films for at least that long, if not longer.

Now we have the ST II rumors to hash out... like who (if anyone) is going to be playing Khan... currently there's a rumor that Harlan Ellison will be joining the writing team (source: Io9) among others....

Believe me, the cost of keeping a forum like this open is negligible compared to the marketing they reap from it, even in the slow months between release of the last film and the preproduction on the next...

But if that's true, why aren't they accepting new members?

I believe they fixed that. I've seen a few new members in the Who's Online section lately.

Yeah, but they can't post. If you go to the members section, the latest activated member is from July.

Hmmm...that is strange. You would figure that a problem like that would have been fixed months ago. Tough to say if this particular forum will make it, knowing that.

You see people trying to register all the time with the who's online function, but nobody is activating the accounts. Try to click on a name you don't recognize, you'll get that message about not being authorized that you get before your account is active.

Perhaps I just got lucky, but I did that the other day and it actually showed me their profile page, complete with 0 posts however.

Are you sure it was a new member, and not just a lurker that doesn't post?

Not sure either way. I was just clicking to see if it would actually let me view a member I'd never seen before.
