>To answer QuantumMath's question at st.com about the PM system, CBS eliminated it when the new site was put together. We used to have a normal PM system with the old site, but I think CBS just wanted all conversation out on the open board, and nothing "behind their backs." It really cut down on communication between members in many ways, with the PM system you could make better contact with people you wanted to get to know, exchange email addys, addresses or even phone numbers with others, something not safe to do with the out-in-the-open messages they set up for people's Profile pages.

Correct.  We did a lot of communication between people and my PM box often was very full of extra information that people didn't want in the open.  This is why a few people that are no longer actively here have my e-mail address (or they're on STO.)


A few people have actively campaigned to bring back the PM system, but it's been rejected by the PTB.

My college just did this today for their annual april fools prank of offering bogus degrees, but it's really well done. Maybe you guys can do a quick article on it tomorrow before they take it down?

I have a novel idea!!  How about TPTB at CBS, since they don't want the Message Boards anyway, turn over the MB's to us fans!  Turn it over to us old fans that have been around not only our own and involved with other MB's but around the ST MB's for a very long time and have it's best intrest at heart!! 


Let us take over and if it fails, then TPTB at CBS can say they told us so.  But if it is a success then TPTB at CBS can see that we DID really know what we were/are talking about.


Or would TPTB at CBS be too afraid to let us fans run this Message Board?

TPTB is an American colloquialism that stands for "The Powers That Be" - it signifies the people with the power to make the decisions.  Often, it's a term used for people that have the power to do something, but they don't have the knowledge or morals to help them make the decision.
