I've seen this before on the Frontier boards. When Frontier were quiet about making Elite 4 there were only a few hardy soles stuck around on the boards. I would estimate about a dozen or so who would post very infrequently because there was very little to post about. Then came the glorious announcement that there was to be a new Elite game and suddenly the board burst into life. It will be the same here. The boards will get quieter until there is some genuine news and then they will burst back into life. Keep the faith people, keep the faith.
