You have missed countless bannings and some very great fan edits and perseverations making headway.

Well, just to give a more accurate rounded account of events since Mate last posted here in December '18…

There have been hardly any bannings at all I can think of (bar the usual spammers, socks and trolls) - though indeed many intriguing projects have been announced and are evolving, with some decent quality discussions taking place around the site, and also some new faces around the place too 👍

 

There is now also an introductory thread in the Announcements Section - for new/newer members (or infrequent posters here) to pop in and say ‘Hi’, etc:-

Welcome to the OT.com; Introduce yourself in here - a good place to make your first post

 

And in mid-December, this:-

The future of OT.com - UPDATE: Please donate! - which resulted in the members here donating to help secure the financial future of the site; and later the current balance thread, here - Current solvency

 

As well as there now being a centralised thread on (some of) the conflicting claims, statements, retcons and attempts to re-write history by George Lucas and/or Lucasfilm over the years:-

George Lucas: Unreliable Narrator & Time Travelling Revisionist…

 

doubleofive’s insightful and comprehensive superb thread Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes is now pinned in the ‘Theatrical vs Subsequent Editions’ section of the site; including many additional sources of information on the changes made to the Original Trilogy films over the years…

 

In late June, there was a 70mm showing of Star Wars (1977) on the big screen - the unaltered original theatrical version - at The Samuel Goldwyn Theater, by The Academy:-

70mm print of GOUT on Saturday in Academy Theater in CA!

 

Oh, I found a fiver in my old coat pocket the other day - which was nice.

And am sure there’s some other stuff occurred too… 😉

 

Jedit: and now… a Members List! Thanks, Jay 😃
