act on instinct said:
Is it time for a new thread? Seems to be getting more into comparisons between the whole saga now, less specific to TROS. Think it’s a good time for that since the dust has sort of settled.
I think the sections labeled “Beyond The Original Trilogy” and “Expanded Universe” overlap too much. I think separate sections for Originals, Prequels, Sequels, and TV series would be nice, along with a General Star Wars discussion for topics that cover the entire saga such as the comparisons you mention.
Plans to split the the current The Expanded Universe & General Star Wars Discussion section into two separate categories are afoot 😉
So the ‘Star Wars’ section of the site would look like this…
• Original Trilogy Discussion
• Beyond the Original Trilogy
• Theatrical Cuts vs. Subsequent Releases
• The Expanded Universe
• General Star Wars Discussions
• Toys & Memorabilia
I’m sure preservation and fan edit topics would naturally pop up in those sections, but there would still be a main section for that.
I don’t see much talk about books and video games. I suppose they could fall under the General category.
Books and video games would likely fall under the ‘The Expanded Universe’ section. Something akin to…
‘For talk on the books, comics, gaming, soundtracks & music, documentaries, fan films, homages, cons & events, theme parks & rides, fan clubs & memberships…’
The General Star Wars Discussion would likely be along the lines of…
‘For discussions that cross the ‘Original Trilogy’, ‘Beyond The Original Trilogy’ and ‘The Expanded Universe’ forums; for thoughts and chat that covers the wider GFFA…’
Don’t get me wrong, this place is great. Just my OCD kicking in.
Thanks mate 👍
