Why don't Star Trek and Doctor Who props have their own forums?

This has always bugged me too, I can't imagine it would be too difficult to put in some more sub-forums.

The Judge Dredd forum was the first and it was the "guinea pig". Here is an excerpt from the post in the Dredd forum explaining why... (so no need to let it puzzle or bug anyone anymore :)).

...you are probably wondering why, of all the popular franchises that our members have a passion for, we have chosen to focus on Dredd. The primary reason is that we see it is a pretty hot topic here and a large number of RPFers are involved in a group costume build of the Judge uniforms from Dredd. They already have a 150+ member following on Facebook, yet Facebook doesn't provide the kind of robust platform for building costumes like a forum does. As I mentioned earlier, we are creating this as a temporary home for that group as well as anyone interested in the Dredd franchise (comic books, Stallone movie, new movie) to see if having its own forum, even on a temporary basis while the subject is hot, generates more involvement and better serves our members.

As the interest in movies like this have an expiration date, so too will this forum. At the end of 2013, based on traffic, we will evaluate whether to keep this forum longer, or whether to disband it and move the content from it back into our costuming and prop forums.

If we see that this forum fails from the get-go, we may dissolve it at any time.

After we separated out the major franchises, the regular prop and costume forums have slowed down enough to give good visibility to other topics that were getting somewhat stifled. We may add more in the future, but it appears that we have struck a pretty good balance for the moment.

Fair enough, though I feel Trek and Who deserve a shot.

We have just created a new forum dedicated to collectibles. It can be used for discussing figures, toys, R/C, ornaments, movie posters, autographs (just to name a few). The forum is located in the COMMUNITY section of the RPF.

EDIT: This post has been added to this thread so that the following two posts will make more sense. :)

Re: **** Announcement: Collectibles Forum Now Open *****

Awesome! How about finally adding Star Trek under Popular Franchises - Maybe for the 50th!

I, too, would love a separate Star Trek forum. It can be a bit of a pain to try and search the entire site for relevant information.
