    Y'know I remember people saying the same about Exeter not that long ago. Sometimes there's just nothing else to say.

    I agree that some times there is nothing more to say,,,but in this case there was,and i understand the delays and its not the delay that bugs me it was just the info that they gave us...they knew they were moving,they have an idea how long it will take to fix the episode itself,so why not tell us upfront on day 1 ..sry fans but its going to be a few months.the post that they had at first to explain the issue left the impression that it may be a few days or a few weeks...not months.

    At the time, they may have thought that was the case. I can understand the disappointment, I really can, but I don't believe anyone's trying to mislead people, or withhold information.

    Well Intrepid i really hope your right and im wrong because i love what they gave us and look forward to many more.I do really appreciate what Phase 2 and all the others have done for us trek fans would just hate to see it turn into a money grab.

    I'm thinking you don't really grasp the "fanfilms can make no money" aspect....

    Whatever else anyone wants to say about them they are not "moneygrabbers". That's a thought you can safely put to rest.

    There's no ad banners on their website, so who do you think is paying Phase II every time somebody visits it?

    Well sir i do understand that fanfilms "can make no money" but i also understand that there is more then 1 way to skin a tribble.For example http://www.startrekphase2.de/en/ this site is owned by Phase 2 i would guess because they use the name and i see adverts on this site,now i could be wrong because i really DONT know much about it, but adverts on a site = revenue??This my help http://www.thesitewizard.com/archive/makemoney.shtml

    Oh and im not saying anyone is money grabbing i did say "i would hate to see this turn into a money grab"
    i also dont mean to bash Phase 2 i love their work and im a huge fan,this was just a few observations i made that made me think "Hmmmm this COULD be a reason".

    Personally, I find it much more frustrating that the Phase II message board has been "down for maintenance" and that the site is "currently offline."

    Not really sure what's going on with all that, as it's been like this since Monday. More frustrating is the lack of any kind of acknowlegement when I asked about it on the Phase II Facebook page. I don't expect people to respond immediately, but the continued silence has been curious, to say the least.

    EDIT: Never mind. It appears they did reply this morning, citing stability issues and further complications from their overall move.

    Phase II do not, as far as I'm aware, own the German mirror site.

    Well USS Intrepid you may be right they may not own the site but they are a "direct affiliate" .

    And your point is? The site is not, to the best of my knowledge, managed by or owned by Phase II.

    So what? This strikes me as a conversation you could bring up with Phase II themselves and not here. We're all spectators, really. What's the point you're trying to make, ultimately? Why do you care?

    That's what I thought. So basically your point is to imply impropriety on their part. Which I think is very, very unfair.

    I think it's natural to compare and contrast what's happening in camp Phase II vs. camp Continues and what you see is Continues churning out new episodes like clockwork and Phase II looking disorganized. So it's probably not fair to assume that anyone doing a show like this must run into false-starts and delays. Continues is obviously doing something better than Phase II. For whatever flaws Vic may have on an interpersonal level (and I know some people here love to beat that drum) he seems to be a better producer who is able to get the right people to work for him and get things in the can.

    Ok first off i just want to say im sorry if i offended anyone but if you read my posts i did say many times" i could be wrong" .really not trying to make a point it was just a theory, a possible reason for the hush hush about the delay,but whats surprises me is i expected some logical reasons why i am wrong or why i could be right not anger at my idea,this is a trek forum i figured everyone here would be above that.Again im NOT saying anyone is doing anything......Tis just a theory

    As I said, I can understand the disappointment. I don't understand why it's necessary to make malicious speculations. These sort of 'theories' basically just stir up trouble for people. If you have a concern about what Phase II is doing, I strongly suggest you address it to the people working on Phase II. It's a more constructive and less hurtful approach.

    Anger? Not at all, just reasonable concern about the message you're sending with your theories.

    Can you not hear what your saying.(Anger? Not at all, just reasonable concern about the message you're sending with your theories.)So what your saying is if you dont like my theories i should keep them to myself?Im not here to start anything i just hate a mystery and well Phase 2 left me with one.Sir i respect everyones ideas and opinions,but this is how you solve a mystery with ideas and theories.
