Given that Brad has apparently decided this is a hostile environment, what are the odds of Stardock deciding that "star-control.com" is using their Star Control trademark without permission and benefiting thereby and taking legal action to gain control of the domain?

PoNaF is kind of a sleepy forum. I don't think I'd miss it too much if it went under. That would get cool cats like Eth and Bleeding Star to migrate to other forums. But then again, I started at UQMF, not here.

If you want to see some hostile territory for Stardock, take a look at r/starcontrol.

I think for people like me, who have been here, and only here, for 10 years come June (which is a stupid amount of time, but nothing in comparison to some of you oldies), losing this place would be quite sad. Obviously, I'm not a very regular poster or anything, but 10 years is alot of time to be somewhere, and it would be upsetting to lose it.
I very much doubt I would move to UQMF, just because I don't spend enough time on here for it to actually move somewhere else, and because I come back from time to time purely because of some weird loyalty I have specifically to this place.

It may be slow nowadays, but this is still the oldest SC site still (somewhat) active. Losing it would be a real blow to the fandom. I'm pretty sure the PNF is safe, though.

video not found, also link itself not working [tag only works for http, not for https].
Furthermore lacking info of what to expect in this video....


edit:
Okay, link hat to be copied with https and www.... weird youtube...

Why can't people just give a written thing, instead of making videos and podcasts. Cannot listen long to someone talking and talking and talking....

If something were to happen to PNF, I would step in and figure out a way to let it continue living.

Paul and Fred set up a GoFundMe for the litigation costs.
