Sequels strife

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

PoNaF is kind of a sleepy forum. I don't think I'd miss it too much if it went under. That would get cool cats like Eth and Bleeding Star to migrate to other forums. But then again, I started at UQMF, not here.

If you want to see some hostile territory for Stardock, take a look at r/starcontrol.

I think for people like me, who have been here, and only here, for 10 years come June (which is a stupid amount of time, but nothing in comparison to some of you oldies), losing this place would be quite sad. Obviously, I'm not a very regular poster or anything, but 10 years is alot of time to be somewhere, and it would be upsetting to lose it.
I very much doubt I would move to UQMF, just because I don't spend enough time on here for it to actually move somewhere else, and because I come back from time to time purely because of some weird loyalty I have specifically to this place.

It may be slow nowadays, but this is still the oldest SC site still (somewhat) active. Losing it would be a real blow to the fandom. I'm pretty sure the PNF is safe, though.

Why can't people just give a written thing, instead of making videos and podcasts. Cannot listen long to someone talking and talking and talking....

A second part of video summary posted above.

If something were to happen to PNF, I would step in and figure out a way to let it continue living.
