>I'd dearly love to see one of TPTB make an account here without Admins knowlage and then do something to get banned *cough*, I mean 'indefinatley suspeneded' and try to ask what for so that they can see first hand what others are going through in thrying to deal with Admin here.  Wonder how well that would go over?
What bothers me is that the admins don't seem to know the people that use the system... they tolerate trolls while banning great contributors.

well they moved all the members from the old board, and deleted all the old threads for a start.  And I suspect if you join the main web page site you count as a member.  Probably most of those people have never even been to the boards

Yea... That's exactly my theory too, but one would think that they'd only include "Members" on a forum only if they sign up on the forum....

Ok, so here's how screwed up this place is. As I said the other day, I sent a message to the site via the "Help" link at the bottom of the Star Trek page. Last night I finally got a response:


The message boards have been working properly for quite a while. There have been no reports of them being down since 8/22/12. I tried to look for your account with us and could not find anything associated with the email address you have given us. In order to access the boards you must register with CBSSports.com. After you complete the registration process you should have no further issues with using the CBS Sports community.


CBS Sports?! I sent the help message from StarTrek.com!!!! No wonder nothing ever gets done. Everything is criss-crossed and they can't keep up with anything! What a bunch of twits!


Ahh, Kirk, my old friend. Do you know the Klingon proverb which tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold? It's very cold....in space.

Glad to see the boards back.  Last few times I'd check they were full of spam and gibberish.  I'd almost given up hope that they were going to be restored.

I appreciate Admin taking care of these boards and keeping this place fun for all members.
