The official Conan.com website now (just updated in the last 24 hours) has a nice-looking (better than average) placeholder page that says "New Website is Coming Soon!" There is also a newsletter signup link.
On top of that, the Cabinet Entertainment website lists Conan, El Borak and Dark Agnes as in development for TV. I know some of this was known/rumored.

Good news perhaps on the website but i wouldn't hold my breath on the TV developments. Those were listed for quite some time,I remember seeing them last year.Still a Red Sonja movie is in development, I don't know how they will approach the character etc if it turns out out to be successful, Conan/other REH properties might return to the big/small screen.
Man I really loved the forums on the old conan.com. This site does quite an admirable job, but some of the magic was definitely lost when that was shut down. Since this is ultimately a product promotion page, I suspect Cabinet will not want to get into the forum moderation space.

I think part of the old magic, in addition to the long history of Howardian lore that was discussed there, was that the fans, the REH scholars, the Cabinet execs and industry professionals like writers and artists and gaming company reps working on various Conan projects used to hang out there in days past. Here we are mostly a hard core of the fans, but we do still have a small but significant presence from some of those other groups. Maybe in the future something similar will arise again, it almost certainly will if a new film or TV show hits the air. I'm really proud of what Jason, Deuce, Aggro, Hun and the rest of us fans have managed to build here. It's good to have a place where we can still discuss all things Howardian.
