Haha wow, this crashed and burned. What a shame.
In all honesty, I think this theme was a bit too far fetched, and with participation the way it is, it was doomed to failure. Anyways, as it goes, I don't see the forums getting much more life unless there is some serious change to the site. Which, won't likely happen, therefore we are doomed. At least we all usually interact with each other regularly in venues outside VGMusic. Between IRC, Soundcloud, 8bc, and Ubiktune, plus whatever else. I think the simple ties that were formed transcend this one site, and is probably why it still has the little life it does have.
