Default Wtf!!!

Sci-Fi cleans out the madhouse then evicts us...now CF is closing, WTF?? This fight to bring back a one season television show is more bizzare than any episode of anything.

This fight continues at Two-Brains House.

with a phalanx of centuriouns

Default OK

where do we go from here? If Colonial Fleets is shutting down and the SCIFI board is now censored to continuation fans, do we now go over to the Cylon Alliance, the board that was started up by Two-Brained Cylon? And I was really starting to like this board a lot...it really seems like someone went through a lot of trouble to move this board to its' own website and make upgrades to it, only to shut down after a few weeks. Something tells me they were MADE to shut down.

Is this the result of what's been going on behind the scenes?

What about the Council? What happened to the brave words?

I want to hear from Don & OWD.

I am

Don,

As the owner of the forum, you certainly have the right to shut it down. I would not even consider questioning that. But, I do feel that you should provide the members of this forum a bit more than a 1 sentence announcement. If it's too touchy to post, then an email or PM would be appreciated.

Default did anyone notice this change?

when i first saw the announcment that cf was closing it was this, as posted in kingfishes topic "why"

"To all, Colonial Fleets will cease to exist as of Midnight tomorrow night.

Thanks for all your support and good luck to you all as you fight for the true Galactica.

Don "

now it reads

"To all, Colonial Fleets will cease to exist as of Midnight tonight night.

Thanks for all your support and good luck to you all as you fight for the true Galactica.

Don "


it goes from closing midnight tomorrow night to closing midnight tonight night.

wtf when is it closing.

I hope that isn't the case, if so,

BST


One final thought: (and PLEASE, my friends, don't take this the wrong way)

In our zeal to Continue TOS, have WE done something wrong? Have we cast the Continuation effort in a bad light? Have we become Fanatics?

These are just some thoughts that suddenly surged to the forefront.

It used to be so simple -- I was in favor of a Continuation and I posted to that effect. Now, I just don't know. Maybe time to wash my hands of the whole damn thing!!

(I'm not leaving........yet)..

Unhappy I Am Sad

Today was a VERY sad day. I came here and saw a sign that said we were closing. Hell this is supposed to be our home Battlestar. A place of safety and comfort. A place to save our show and talk with others who feel the same way about a show that died prematurely. We elected a new prez who I stand behind 110%. OWD is the new leader who will take us into the next stages. Now I wonder what is our future? When we come back will the closed sign be hung or will we be open for business. We are all winners. I don't hang with losers. This is like my extended family.

Had me going a bit too.

I think that I might just give Mr. Senmut a kick in the posterior annex for raising my blood pressure.
