Dude. Put the forum back RIGHT NOW or I will reach through the screen and choke a bitch. And when I'm done with that I'm going to choke YOU!

Kidding aside [wait, he's KIDDING?! WHEW! --Somebody] put the forum back up and give it a month. I think we can get the population back up and make it alive again.

Gimme a month, tis all I ask.

Otherwise I choke a bitch so hard. [again with the threats, someone should medicate him -- Different Person]
[hey I'm not a doctor I don't medicate people -- Somebody]
In all honesty, I'm tired. I loved that board and still love the community it fostered, but after 5 years and several major crashes with complete database losses in all of them, I just don't have the power to put it all back together again. I believe we've run our course, and I will miss it, but we can move on.

That being said, please visit my dear friends:
http://renext.nusseymagazine.com/

ReNext is an awesome board, and it's atmosphere is like ours. They're a great group of people, and I'm a member there, too. Great board. Great discussion, and they need their help getting their community built from a previous crash.

I tried to re reg there the other day, because I couldn't find my account... It never went through.

Fine.

Give me admin access to what is left of Starscape. I will run the shit for you.

I was only there a few weeks but I quite enjoyed it. I think it is worth one more effort.

Otherwise: choke a bitch.

You are terribly unstable.
Which makes you perfect for the job!

Ah well, nah. I won't be bringing her back.
5 years of great history, though.

See, the shit wasn't being run. You need someone who can Run The Shit. Someone who will deal with the fuckery, shenanigans, BS and treachery. Someone who can issue: cutbacks when needed.

Come on John. One more try.

Re: STARSCAPE BBS HAS MOVED

J, I was very sorry to get your message about this. I'm still hoping that the database will somehow be found and Starscape saved. It's a great community and I know how much it means to you. Perhaps this just a mistake or misunderstanding.

Thank you very much. We'd very much like to have Starscape members join us at ReNext, though not at the expense of Starscape. If anybody wants to join, please send me a PM here at TrekBBS first, so I can be on the lookout for you and you don't get purged in the daily Bot attack.

Sorry about that. You couldn't find your account because of the Apocalypse last year; everything got lost and we had to start from scratch. That won't happen again as we are taking precautions. As for regging, we're now getting around a hundred Bots a day and it's become nearly impossible to spot legitimate applicants unless I know ahead of time. Please register again; I'll be watching for you and I'll activate your account as soon as I spot you.

Well, I checked with the host. The board is definitely gone with no backup data.
Thanks for the condolences RJ. She was a good home.

Really sorry to hear this, J. It would have been nice to know why they shut it down, though.

Well, I bring a little update with my response. It would seem our account was confused with another, and ours was deleted.
Before you say anything about fixing it, they don't have a backup, and it was completely accidental. Since our server, host and software were provided to us free of charge, they don't owe us anything.

Crap, that sucks. I would wholeheartedly welcome any members who wish to join ReNext, as we're always looking for new people and the atmosphere is very similar. All are welcome.

Re: STARSCAPE BBS HAS MOVED

That's fantastic, J. I'm glad you kicked that understandable feeling of despair and got Starscape back online. I've already re-regged.

We're still happy to have new friends join at ReNext, of course. If anybody does want to join, please Bookmark this URL (for some reason, other address give sporadic 404 errors):
