Pretty soon, siu chung man. Everyone will be able to see it soon, if we decide we like it and want to keep it. Otherwise it will disappear.

Jason's been the main driving force behind the new forum. With support from Mark Herschberg, David Weitzman, and others. My own contributions have been:
(1) Delay creation of the forum for, like, a year.
(2) Confuse a bunch of people by chooeing the temporary name "Blue Harvest" - which seems to have been much less widely recognized than I hoped. Oh well...
(3) Opening the new forum a day earlier than I previously said I would, catching Jason and company by surprise.
(4) Managing to accidentally delete several of the messages that were previously posted there by Jason and others. Well OK, I think I can blame crappy UBB software for this one.
Based on my record to date, I should probably stay away from the new forum for a while.

So do you want to explain the name for those of use who didn't "get it" ?

Yep, that's the one. Basically I just needed a made-up name to disguise the forum, and Lucasfilm's mock title came to mind. I originally assumed it would be pretty easy to google, but later I saw that there have been a lot of other people (Star Wars fans) using the title for various other things since then, and many of the Google links gave little clue where then name really came from. So I added the "Horror Beyond Imagination" subtitle, which made it easier to find pages like this one.
