    I am in inactive mood at Command though, lurking in the background. Checking my messages but no longer participating in any conversation, bar the few likes I dole out to the friendlies.

    One less Ascended-account active. Soon, it'll be bubble-players only -- just the way they want it or will get it but not want it because far less people to call yourself a community with.

    Don't encourage him.

    Stargate is quiet again. Nothing happened in the last 2 weeks. No stream, no news, no announcement. So you are right, other franchises deserves more hype and attention. On the other hand my little SG fan heart is broken. Again. But we can't do anything I am afraid, so we have to use the long wait with something more useful then building castles of dreams and false hopes.

    In the meantime, we got high praise from Anthony Daniels, Kathleen Kennedy and LucasFilm.

    Also, LucasFilm wants our crate seats, in which all the stars of the film sat over the last few days at Star Wars Celebrations.

    Eat that, MGM!

    And the Star Wars Show did, in fact, take our crate seats home with them.

    And I hadn't even sat in them... now, we need to build new ones.

    Anywho...

    So, the buzz with the superfans has passed, and died down... like literally, died down. Not a word from any of them about their time at Wondercon or what exactly it is they are "doing" for Command. Or Command even expanding on, what they say, are "your superfans"... No, they're not. Don't even know who they are. Let alone they have mingled in the actual community.

    Bar 1, or 2, or maybe 3 -- the rest... completely unknown... like they're not even real. If there weren't any photos of the actual panel, that would probably could have been the truth. Then again, I know none of them so they might just have 10 random people picked off the street and made to pretend.

    Which I know isn't what happened but it does feel that way after it was "hyped" to high heavens.

    Anyhow... looks like the message feed at Command is currently Platschu's private quiz-page, and Jack_ONeill posts The Stargate Guy's videos faster than he can come and do the same. JO is the keep-us-up-to-date-news-poster.

    And to be honest, some of The Stargate Guys' videos aren't even that good. Now, I haven't seen them all, but those I have talk about fan theories as if they are "facts" (canon); or use fan theories to "explain/clarify" something, while contradicting canon which has made things sufficiently clear. Notably the DHD and ZPM come to mind.

    I have to admit that I haven't seen any of his videos. I'm not particularly active on youtube or ever find the time to watch anything, or just forget.

    I am working on it.... Honestly I haven't done anything what any other fan couldn't make. There are some fan girls, some birthday wishers etc. Sometimes I feel a bit guilty that what if my quizes scares people away. Maybe I should post less frequently, so other people could shine and their "threads" won't disappear in oblivion.

    Sommer posted a few photos on FB. I have also seen more photos on the FB page of the SG:C app. Don't ask what is the logic that they put more media coverage there instead of their own app...

    Maybe they finally realize that blocking half the fandom community from your content isn't as profitable as it was advertised. If the word of mouth don't work, and/or warns against visiting their "fan community" cause of certain inabilities to provide access for everyone, I'd say posting more content in a "public" plaza is better for business.

    I scanned through the blog a couple days ago... getting thoroughly agitated at the inevitable Command-can-do-no-wrong-and-is-the-holiest-than-thou-community (it's not) praise.

    Edit:
    I shouldn't have gone back and scanned it a second time cause now I interpret this "superfan" thing as that it's only for those who've made a name for themselves -- well no... that's called serving a selfish interest, and it's clear from the amount of contact or lack thereof, that's exactly what their serving.

    Ugh... I need a break.


    That gate, by the way, is a joke. Although, that one dude dressed as a Jedi made the most epic photo with it. He would never have been able to do that with our gate cause people aren't allowed to touch the event horizon print as that would mean they were on the top steps and we can't guarantee their safety up there. There's a gap between the top platform and the event horizon print so should they fall, they could seriously hurt themselves.

    No comments have been made here for 2-3 weeks. Shocking. Is Stargate really dead?!

    Stargate is never dead. It isn't any more "dead" now than it was before SGC and Origins. Whether or not it will be revived for new shows, that's obviously just a faraway dream. But not any more or less than before.

    I mean now the buzz has completly died after the Origins. More than a year have passed and nothing. Even the Superfan buzz is over now.

    I know the Upfronts is coming and that could be a perfect time to announce something SG related by the MGM, but honestly I have also lost hope and my patience. I really wanted to happen, but it looks like we have to spend our time with something more useful or more productive instead of waiting for the miracle.

    NickEast is right. It isn't more dead or alive as before Origins.

    MGM/Command just has a poor communications officer (as it were), or more accurately a poor insight in how to keep a buzz going.

    I mean, look at BBC and Doctor Who (easy example). There is no new Doctor Who in 2019 and yet, their social media team is posting something new or old every day of the week -- or almost every day of the week. Silly things for Space Day, or International Whatever Day. They always have a funny gif or a quote at the ready to hightlight something from more than 50 years of Who.

    Seriously, if stargate is such a precious franchise/IP for MGM, then why they hell are they squandering it. Do they really think that regionblocked fans will come crawling back if they decide to expand. Those are lost and their trust -- also gone.

    In the words of that immortal pirate Jack Sparrow to Will when he's eyeing Elizabeth Swann rummaging through the chest of Inca gold: "You know that opportune moment." -- "That was it."

    Command has nothing new to offer -- not even to paying members I think. And it seems the problems with all-access are wide and varied. And let's not even begin to talk about the "perks"... exhibit A) the founder's patch.

    The Superfan buzz has fizzled out. Hell, they aren't even members... and when they are they are annoyingly in line with Command and the fake community. Hate to say it, but for me that's a betrayal that's unforgivable.
