I just did a quick count, there have been 31 posts in this forum in the month of July. As we are now at the 16th of the month, that averages to less than 2 posts per day. It seems to me the current construction of the forum isn't working. It is a ghost town. The current rule (as I understand it) is that there can be no discussion of official news aside from the casting thread. In the past (i.e. for ROTS) the 3NSA forum allowed discussion of official news. People watched trailers, read press releases, etc. I'd propose we rethink opening that option back up in here. If not, there's just not anything to discuss - the forum as currently constructed is essentially a place for fan fic ideas. I say this because my previous spoiler free experiences in these forums have been probably the most enjoyable online posting experiences I can recall, on any website. I'm honestly pretty bummed out that FIVE Star Wars films are on the near horizon, and I can't discuss them on these forums unless I go over to the spoiler forum and find out stuff I don't want to know. Anyways, I just wanted to throw out my two cents about free discussion of official news, as it seems like this forum is dead and/or dying.
