Wow. I never came back to read this page until now. Looks as if I was right to leave after all. Apparently, two sentences taken out of context by one person is enough to make several people here get down and dirty rude and insulting. I do not apologize to those people. You are wastes of my time. The others who followed this, I only apologize for not updated elsewhere, not erasing the posts. I said on the very first post that I was an extremely personal person which is why I worked on this edit on and off for two years before even posting it. I found that without motivation, my schooling, work and family life would forever deny me the ability to finish this edit. I went ahead and posted here so as to get input and hopefully to know that others may have cared if it were ever completed (which is a very good motivator indeed).
The last post of mine, which was so cleverly quoted and then used to disparage me, was actually about something quite different than what you were made to believe. I had several days off work and found that I was bored at working on this edit for my own sake (a common occurrence). I figured I would spend the weekend and a few more days working solely on ANY requested scene that some one person might have always wanted to see inserted or fixed or whatnot from ANH. I was going to use the 5 or 6 days to work, not for myself, but for you, hence the quote "Ask or you shall not receive." I also had made mention that I didn't want to choose from just one or two requests in case they weren't exactly something I either COULD do or if the idea was just absurd or something of that nature. No one had been responding to almost any of my posts, hence "If feels like I'm talking to an empty room". "Taking it elsewhere" was also covered since I said I came to this site for the sake of input and motivation. To say I came here for praise is asinine considering I said absolutely nothing of the sort in any of my posts leading to this one particular post. As a matter of fact, I pride myself on my good manners and ability to defer to others, which I felt I did with the utmost respect.
I deleted the posts, as I knew I always would, the second my thread became anything less than positive and fun. After I had made the gesture of spending my time working to do a really cool scene for someone, the very first response I received, which has now been edited btw, was extremely rude and hateful. One is all it takes with me. My response was "No problem". I do not owe anyone anything. This has and remains an edit for the sole satisfaction of me and my son. My edit is complete except for waiting for the blurays to come out so I can see what they have to offer. I will share the edit with those who want it, and judging by this thread, that number will be very few thankfully.
The only edit I follow is Ady's. This is the first time I've been back and from what I gather he's still chugging away, 3 1/2 years later. I look forward to his release which will of course be a labor of love. I get that about him. Too bad some of you do not understand that about me. This is a labor of love so that the Star Wars my son grows up with will not include things like Greedo shoots first, falling Jawas or that a slight list to the left is what constitutes a maneuver.
Oh, and to all the people who thinks this stuff is easy.... please, I'd love to see yours that you've been hiding from all of us.
