Thanks to the whole team of admins and moderators!

Man, the same goes for the community here. 18 months ago we were faced with shuttering the entire ordeal. Behind the scenes we were scrambling to come up with ways to continue: Portage to another format and server, start over somewhere else, keep it all as a static archive and just link back to it from wherever we landed, etc.

All our years of discussion, preservation, and fighting the good fight were on the brink of becoming a read-only archive of 16 years of Star Wars fandom. Jay gave us several months to formulate a plan and was very involved and willing to help with whatever we chose.

Faced with extinction and a scattering of long time friends and fellow members, you guys stepped up to the plate and swung hard. As of today, we are funded for the next three years.

Consider a glass raised to you all. 🍷
