Don't know, I always thought they communicated through CGEF.

I'm happy just with Ian Boothby hanging around.

There was a guy here last year, under the name of Sarge, who'd post quite regularlly. He was an animator, or background artist, or somesuch.

Besides Ian, no one else connected with Futurama was ever posted here.

At least on a regular basis. One of the board artists signed up a few days after the hiatus was announced under the name Guffman, even made a few posts.

Some of the Rough Draft people (have?) frequent(ed) the board too.

I guess we scared them all away with our geekiness.

Apperntly they do,well at least they visit. In the That's Lobstertainment! commentary, David said he went to CGEF to check the ep. rating for it, knowing they had them. As he looked at the ratings one guy kept on complaining how horrible it was, so David e-mailed him asking why it was so bad. The guy e-mailed him back saying that he was only joking. Also in the commentary for Where the Buggalow roam, someone mention Ain't No Such Thing As Too Much Amy Wong.

Yes... they have visited CGEF and ANSTATMAW (Ain't No Such Thing as Too Much Amy Wong)... I wouldn't be surprised if they've visited a lot of the other sites too...  the problem is that they have to evade looking at fan type stuff so they don't accidently steal somebody's idea...

Well Groening of course, Ken Keeler and David X. Cohen. In terms of voice actors, Billy, Katey, John, Frank Welker, and Tress MacNeille.

Definetely DXC. He seemed to work more on it than Groening.
Also, in "Jurassic Bark", DXC quotes some guy's (I think Ayep) eview of it.
Thats what I know and remember. I don't know if they look at the actual message boards though.

David X Cohen used to post occasionally on the newsgroups but don't bother looking for them they're long gone.

I'm kinda surprised we don't have more people visit. I understand they had to stay away from fanstuff while the show was still going, but now that it's canned you'd think they might check out what the fans are doing.

Well,I think that has something to do with faith - maybe the creators of Futurama still think it is possible to ressurect the show and don't want to 'steal somebody's idea' (as said by somebody earlier.

But I think that writing a scenario based on the existing fan-fic wouldn't be bad(or against the law) as long as the author of the fic would provide a written permission to do this (I don't know about US law though - so I might be wrong)

Can they really not even look at forum posts? It's no different then listening to verbal praise, critisism, and discussion. I can sort of understand the deal with fan art and fan fiction but a normal post being illegal is rediculous.

As far as I know looking at normal posts is okay.  They've certainly done it before, at leat on newsgroups.  Its just fanworks that are a cause of concern.

I would think that a lot of people from the show probably did read comments here, at least while the show was still airing.  Its an invaluable source of feedback, to see what the fans are saying.  They clearly read the newsgroups so I would think they probably read this too quite a bit.  They just probably never signed on so they wouldn't call too much attention to themselves, and so as to not stifle free debate (IE the newsgroup who said Lobstertainment was "actually okay" when directly e-mailing that writer).  They probably read it less now or maybe not at all, since there's no longer any show for them to take advice on (a lot of the writers are probably more busy looking at feedback on the shows that make up their current jobs now), though I wouldn't be suprised if they still pop in here and there.

Why on earth would the creators of the show would need an approval from someone who wrote a fanfic based on THEIR show? it should be the other way around, but since they want to encourage people to become fans of the show they don't demand it.

I think the more realistic answer is that they just all moved on to other projects, and sometimes try to pitch Futurama back, no more.

Yes, using the characters from Futurama in fanfics is legally questionable, but so is using plots  in episodes that were created by other people, if you knew of it beforehand. Plots are also a kind of intellectual property. However if you didn't know such a plot was allready thought off beforehand, you can claim to be in good faith. That's why creators of shows don't read fanfics, then they can claim good faith.

If Futurama folks are found lurking around here they are flogged by RDS's resident transvestite dominatrix.
