That too - back when I was a young struggling pom trying to make ends meet - by fixing a lot of washing machines in houses of which seemingly overly attractive single women… who used their charms on me to have their wicked way by playing 70’s ‘Bow Chicka Bow Wow’ music in the background… slowly… softly… seductively… whispering in my ear… asking for a cheaper invoice…


Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Ha ha, all good. Just from a different part of the pond than I thought had been eluded to 😉

Thank you all - I always knew my love for Kelly’s Heroes or people throwing pointed metal objects at my name would get me into trouble one day… 😃

(darth_ender - I should have stuck to chess! Though I hope we can another game when I’ve fully recovered from our last one 😉)

Congrats Jason, it was a great show.

Dumb American over here. I’m part of the stereotype that says we barely know anything about the rest of the world. What’s a Pom? Pom-eranian? You’re a dog? No but for real, I can’t think of any country that starts with Pom. Then, I bet if you tell me said country, I probably never heard of it.

I’m a Pom mate (it’s Australian slang for an Englishman).

The term is usually get used a fair bit more when the countries play each other at cricket or rugby etc.

It’s a little bit of gentle ribbing 😃

Well, today was my last day as a moderator here on this most exceptional, distinct and quality site.

For a while now circumstances in my life have changed somewhat - and continue to evolve… unfortunately to the point of me no longer being able to give the time, energy and commitment that this fantastic outpost of Star Wars geekdom requires, and also deserves. I also won’t be around as much as a member here for the near future either - though still hope to pop in on occasion; especially for the forthcoming Star Wars releases, a fair few intriguing fan projects, and maybe even for the footy 😃

It’s been a compelling, enjoyable, eventful, and also an eye-opening experience - I consider myself both fortunate and honoured to have been a mod on here - for near on a year, now. Massive, massive thanks to Jay, Anchorhead and SilverWook for affording me the opportunity, and also for their support, patience and friendship. I wish you guys all the very best, also to the new moderator (whoever that may be), along with the site itself, and everyone else on here - past, present and future.

 
We certainly do live in interesting times - and this is especially so in regards to Star Wars fandom of late…

It seems the fun and love has gone out of Star Wars for a number of vocal fans on the 'net - replaced with constant nitpicking & repeated negativity by some, and in a few cases… toxicity, myth, hate and anger towards certain elements within Star Wars. It’s such a shame that this has become so - mistaking the above with genuine, balanced, informative, factual-based criticism, or just not acknowledging people may just have diverging outlooks, alternative interpretations, or a different point of view…

Passionate debate and wide-ranging views have always been welcome and encouraged on here - yet please try to keep it civil, and on topic. That other fans have a love or enjoyment of something others don’t have… is not a reason to provoke or attack them - nor to those that make and appear in the films (genuine criticisms aside, of course). As in real life, keeping it civil has more chance of getting your viewpoint over more effectively… than by being toxic or repetitive with the negative waves & opinions.

 
We’re in an age where more Star Wars content is being released than ever before… hopefully we’ll view the new releases with an open mind (even us finicky & pedantic souls on here 😉) Who knows - we may even enjoy them? If you don’t, then say why and critique away… though try and leave the toxicity, myths, mis-truths, hate, anger, endless nitpicking, and repeated negativity at the door; nobody wants to be the forum bore, or the reason why people avoid certain threads or sections of the site.

We’ll always still have what we’ve loved about Star Wars - whatever aspects or content that may be…

To paraphrase Irvin Kershner, quoted whilst directing Empire Strikes Back… ‘fight for what you love - not because you hate’.

 

Please give Jay & The Mods (still a quality name for a band, that!) a break from the sniping & shite that occurs on here at times. The amount of work they get through is bewildering - much of it unseen… helping members out with queries, problems & info in PMs, addressing members’ issues, ensuring the rules are followed so there is no danger to the existence of the site, deleting countless spam & troll posts before they are seen by many of us - followed by the work which we do likely see on here…

…and then they may even get to post as regular members! 😃

As members we may occasionally see a mod decision we think is seemingly unfair or unjust… this is likely because we’re not privy to all the facts or details, whereas the mods usually are - toiling away, deliberating, trying to decide what is best for the site and all you good people. They may even get it ‘wrong’ on occasion (I certainly have!) or make decisions some may not agree with - though I can say with utmost certainty that any decision made is only in the interests of both the site and it’s members.
 

Anyway, that’s more than enough blathering on from me.

 

MTFBWY - and hopefully we’ll all see that long-awaited official release of the Original Trilogy on a modern digital format, completed with the love, care and quality it so respectfully deserves, sometime soon…

Try to have fun & enjoy yourselves here - be cool to each other - and all the very best!

Nice one… 👍

Wow, a surprise to see you go, oojason. I think you’ve been treated a bit unfairly from time to time, and there have been a few rough spots here and there (and a steep learning curve!), but you were always a valuable addition to the moderating team. Wishing you the best.

Nice post… take care oojason, and thanks. Hope to see you poke your head in here from time to time in the future.

Live long and prosper Ojason and may the dark side of the force be with you.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

Cheers mate - that’s very kind - though was just a small part of a quality team.

Am only really on here a few mins when I can (usually updating the Index threads etc), seeing what’s going on - posting up some stuff which may be of interest here. Sometimes an occasional hour or so spent on here browsing - though trying to stay away from debating topics and issues which take up a lot of time and effort (well, trying anyway 😉)

Keep well mate - love your stuff on here (and at deviantart too).
