I like it because it gives the series a lot more room (maybe a bit too much for a brand new forum, it looks awful empty to me) so fans will be able to organize their posts and keep track of things more easily. For contrast this forum has 16 boards about Maddy while the phorum has 3, maybe 4 if you count the OpAphid archive and they are all hidden at the bottom of the forum with all the other fan fiction. For a series that keeps bragging about fan interaction they do tend to hide it where it will get the least amount of views.
The board isn't ultra busy yet, but it is only a couple days old and I'm not even sure what the size of the Maddy audience is. I will be curious to see if it lasts, in the past there have been various LG, CiW, and OpAphid fan boards that have sprung up, but unless I mistaken the Cove is the only one to have lasted.

Hey Terry, thanks for the post here. I would love to see everyone from here pop over there to shout hello sometime! I thought long and hard about moving Maddison to the cove - but the bloody thing needs a lot of space. Like you say, we've got 20+ boards and I find that in order to keep things organised we really just need that extra space. Especially now with the return of Brother and Tachyon.
I'll still be updating the LG boards, double posting everything. If you'd like I can do that here too - I just want to make sure that everyone is included. I remember some of the segregation and elitism that went down with Op, and even LG. I want to make sure we cover all our bases, as fans.
