After Season 7 will the FOX MITM Forums Close?

Does anybody no if FOX close the forums, mini sites for their series after the show gets cancelled?

I was wondering whether this is the case, because if it is, then we should start concetrating more on encouraging as many of the good MITM fans who still use the MITM Official forums to migrate over here...

i did say that with the 'recruiting forum members thread' but people took little interest. i have emailled 1 person on the the offical forum about coming here but since no reply/joining.

They won't close the forum just because MitM is cancelled.

Yeah I did see that thread, I hope we can continue asking people to come, I think adverts on the official forums are probably more effective, our banning systems can filter out any scum that gets into the forums :D

I was only asking, because sometimes these companies just close down their mini sites, as they no longer want to pay to run them anymore

It's amazing the crap Fox still has on their website. They just add new content, instead of modifying or removing the old. Every page looks different, since Fox has gone through so many different graphics pages, but never updated the site for each graphics change. They don't ever delete any shows, their lsit just keeps getting longer and longer. The crap that still exists is amazing. I don't know how long they'll wnat to keep paying the bill to Prospero (the forums are hosted on Prospero's servers) but my guess is that they don't even realize they're doing it, and those forums will be around for people to post crap in for a long, long time.

I don't no why they chose Propsero, the phpbb free forums are better

I don't think they will close the Fox MITM fourm, they talk about just about everything but MITM on the offical fourms.

That is true, i really hate forums like the ones they have, for a start they have a really bad way of displaying posts.

I agree, I really like the vBulletin software. I've never used it much before this forum, but it seems to be the best, much better than Prospero. The frames bother me and make it load very slowly.

I'm Ekkostar over there. Actually, I changed to Ekkostar on the front voting page. I should change to Ekkostar here, too.

They delete all Cancelled Show Forums except for X-Files since, that was FOX's golden child. Remember, FOX pays for these forums so, why do they want to keep a forum for a show that doesn't air anymore?

Why do they waste their money paying for Prospero forums anyway? They could host their own PHPBB for free.
