A new story entry has been added:

Welcome ImSaturn Members

Quote:
With the pending closure of the ImSaturn social networking site, Saturn has been working closely with me to facilitate a transfer of the most popular "social groups" from the ImSaturn site to SaturnFans.com. The remaining folks at Saturn have a sincere interest in making sure Saturn owners continue to have a place to talk about their cars. As a result, I'm happy to announce the creation of the new "ImSaturn Groups" section here at SaturnFans.com. Now more than ever, it's important for Saturn owners to have a place to share their experiences and get help. The new groups were built to closely mimic the group configuration at ImSaturn. You'll still be able to post photos, as well as send and receive messages from other members. You can also create your own social group!

Charlie, you're a good man. Thanks for keeping the Saturn torch burning. Now, if you could please fix the broken link at the bottom of the /forums page (when you click on your name, you get a PHP error) you'll be perfect!

I usually don't like to post +1 posts, but this seems worth it. You have done a great job at keeping this site up and running and Saturn fans informed -- congrats on the new acquisition and thanks for keeping the torch burning!

Good work, Charlie.

I am just sad to see the IMSaturn Website disappear...I am a member of that site in addition to Saturnfans.com. This is all hard for me: our local reatailer being closed, the brand being phased out, seeing what the 2012 Aura could have been by looking at the Buick Regal...

A very very VERY sad time.

IMSaturn was unique. Along with the many Saturn employees who were members, many SaturnFans members were there as well. For those who only were familiar with IMSaturn: Welcome to SaturnFans - you are in good company.

This is also a great site for all the IM Saturn twits to realize what garbage Saturn really is. You all thought your Aura'a where state of the art and different when in fact you are all driving Chevy Malibu's. By the way, your Astra's are Opels. LMAO. To bad IM Saturn is gone, I really loved reading all the stupid, uneducated and moronic comments people left. This site won't be as fun, but all I can say if you want to see what is wrong with your Saturn this is the site to be on.

Saturn Aura was intruduced as a 2007 model. The corresponding Malibu was not until 2008.

By the way, your Astra's are Opels. LMAO.

GM has owned Opel since 1929. Sharing of platforms within a corporation is rather common. What's your point?

Stupid, uneducated, and moronic...like denoting plurality with an apostrophe and an s? And I assume, from your sidebar details, that you drive, insure, and fill with gas one of these "garbage" vehicles, when at any time you could sell it and drive whatever you consider to be a better brand. Between your poor grammar and your failure to prove yourself any better than the "twits" you condemn by continuing to own and operate said garbage, cannot say you have made an impression as one to be rightfully casting any dispersions.

It looks like to me not only the Saturn Brand will die in 2010 but this site will as well. News really has not been updated, and the forums have not been really that active since December.

This is a great site, but it is up to the saturn owners to keeep it great.

Um, perhaps you need to look into the other forums on SF???.
Charlie just had a new addition to his family. I'm sure that is keeping him and Mrs. Charlie quite busy.

We're not going anywhere, but if you do get easily bored and stray, we'll leave a light on for ya.

I have always thought the site was a great tool for saturn owners, but the site is going to have to change a bit if it wants to live on.

Why one might ask

The Home Page has to change in format or content, Saturn will never have new news and a home page that has no new news or does not change wil die.

The forms page is great.

Maybe a future saturnalia site would the Current Saturn Home Page or content that was on it. Like this site i found.

Unfortunately Charlie doesn't make a living running Saturnfans. So there is no way that he can spend every waking moment constantly updating the Saturnfans homepage like you describe, its just not possible. IMO he has done an outstanding job creating a site where we can all come together as Saturn owners and discuss our vehicles. I don't see Saturnfans dying anytime soon so long as our rather loyal group of fans keeps coming back to talk about our crazy plastic bodied cars

I agree that the Home page must change ....eventually. And I'm sure that Charlie, time willing will do that. Many of the newer members are unaware of the hard work Charlie has done to keep this site up and running and it continues to run strong. While Saturn is still open there will be some news about Service and other items. When the last door closes, I'm sure Charlie and SaturnFans will adapt and adjust.

FWIW, I have noticed anyways that there are a number of Forum users that apparently from the content of their posts bypass the Home page to go straight to the Forums anyways.

I seriousy doubt that. As long as there are Saturns on the road, this site will still get traffic. More so onec current model come out of warrenty and more people start doing theit own work. They'll need advice from other owners.
