I've updated my mirror page to include info that "The Holiest Thing" (and subsequent episodes) will be considered "season 4" episodes unless "official" info says otherwise. I also mentioned the dates for the June shoot ("Mind Sifter").If other people (including Phase II) want to shoot craps with their private info on Facebook or any other social media sites, that's their decision. BTW, in case you don't know, I created a "fake" Facebook account under a female name (grin) over a year ago. I did it primarily because a lot of news media sites won't let people post comments on articles unless they have a Facebook presence. If Facebook wants to sell or share the bogus personal info I left on this fake account, they're more than welcome. But, the fake account also lets me "peek" over the shoulders of more public pages. That's how I got the dates for the June shoot. But, I never "Like" anything ... nor do I send or accept "friend" requests. In short, my account is for "access only."Anyhoo, I echo what others have said. I have no particular hatred of the P2 Facebook pages. I merely think forum visitors deserve "equal time" at the "same time" for info that affects the project. As I said earlier, the forum gets new people, too. And those new people should never be given a reason to abandon the forum for Facebook. Nobody likes second-hand info ... and nobody likes an informational vacuum, either.Nuff said.Regards,J.

P.S. FWIW, back in the early 70s, I was "convinced" that quadraphonic stereo (remember that?) was the wave of the future. And, I bought all the "right" equipment - both SQ format and discrete. A few years later, the only place quadraphonic equipment could be bought was on the "clearance" shelves.
I don't begrudge your use of Facebook as your main portal to the world, keep all the better discussion and the pretty pictures there if that's easier for the staff. Just echo at least the main points about what is going on here as well.
Just my two cents but Star Trek Phase 2 passed 85,000 "likes" today on Facebook and the numbers continue to rise rapidly. It has over 13,000 more "likes" than the "other" TOS fan film group and that gap continues to increase. Thousands of people are discussing Phase 2 on Facebook and every time James, Patty or anyone posts something to the page, its gets tons of praise and discussion. I check in here every couple of days but there is almost no activity here anymore. This forum just doesn't have the exposure of Facebook. While I'm no great proponent of Facebook myself, I finally succumbed to "the dark side" (sorry) and joined a few years ago and found it an excellent way to keep up with my interest and friends. I'm not to worried about Facebook mis-using my information, Target already gave it away!. I think Facebook has given Phase 2 an exposure that it couldn't have gotten anywhere else and has helped tremendously to get the word out. Just my two cents.

We get a few new members here on the forums and some have posted recently & Alec is not the only one who prefers forums over FB.
So who runs the forums now? I PM'd someone I thought was a likely suspect and have had no reply about a problem I am having that is making reading these difficult. I do hope I don't need a FB account to get tech support for the forums, lol.
