You all might find it profitable to hedge your bets, just in case there is a sudden shut down of this forum. I've seen forums abruptly close before without any announcement or warning. Without the forum you would not be able to PM each other to ask what has happened.

Perhaps you all should consider establishing alternative ways of contacting each other if this place were to close; perhaps email addresses, or a web page you can all know about in advance where you could get information and plan a new forum, if need be. You may not need it if this place keeps going, but if you want to preserve your community a bit of planning can go a long way.

Janway and Vince have started message boards, they are pretty good alternatives if this place shuts down

Janeways Star Trek board
http://startrekkers.phpbbhosts.co.uk/index.php

Vince's Night of the Living Nerd board

Guess I was wrong… or maybe this site has been forgotten… until the annual hosting bill comes across the accountants desk…

Ok someones still watching because the Uhura/abortion thread got nuked but they're not concerned with the PM spam and they're not activating new accounts. The only thing they seem to pay any attention to is something controversial that they wouldn't want to be associated with; for example the above mentioned Uhura/abortion thread. No new accounts is the main thing though, that's what makes me think the site is coasting on the remainder of it's license. But like I said before I have no idea what agreement was reached between Paramount and vBulletin.
