An Index Thread (and more) for Star Wars Preservations…
A new and updated Index Thread to try and help members find information on, and links to, the many various projects, quality assurance/improvements topics, and ‘how-to’ threads - that have originated on the OT•com down the years.
Moth3r’s quality original Index Thread - ‘Project Index: Star Wars Preservations’
The Index Categories are:-
• Star Wars Preservations - Laserdisc sourced (many are from the earlier fan-made projects on the OT•com, + a ‘brief history of’…)
• Star Wars Preservations - from non-Laserdisc sources (VHS / VCD / DVD / Blu Ray, Film Prints etc)
• Star Wars Restorations
• Star Wars Documentaries (as well as TV Programs, Bonus Materials, Curiosities, Adverts and scene preservations…)
• Star Wars Fan Documentaries
• Star Wars Fan Edits
• Star Wars Audio Projects
• Technical & Video / Audio / Quality Improvement threads & Projects
• The ‘Which Is Best?’ SW Preservation Project discussion threads… (subjective conversations as to which SW Preservations are highly rated / liked / suited…)
• Notes (& also General Star Wars Preservation Discussion threads)
• An Index Thread for ‘Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art’… (and more)
or you can just scroll down through all the category posts in this thread… 😃
• doubleofive’s invaluable Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes resource thread
• OriginalTrilogy•com’s Fan Edit / Preservation Forum Rules and FAQ thread
A quick reminder that the Star Wars Preservation and Star Wars Fan Edit sections of the site are NOT the places to bash on certain eras or aspects of the films, actors, film-makers or owners.
Critiquing a scene in the Star Wars Fan Edits section with the aim of improving it, removing it, altering it etc is perfectly fine. Statements such as ‘Disney sucks’ and ‘this film is so shit no Fan Edit can save it’ is not.
Bluto’s comprehensive and quality Guide to Downloading Projects from Usenet thread, in the How-To’s and Technical Discussions section of the site, may be of interest for those members looking to acquire Harmy’s Despecialized Editions or TN1’s 4K OT Preservation Projects etc.
ZigZig’s kind and generous Monthly shares thread may also be of some assistance for members looking to acquire certain projects.
RoccondilRinon has very kindly made an OriginalTrilogy•com animated logo for use with any Preservation of Fan Edit projects.
There are three animated variants of the OT•com logo available for download, along with a still image in .png format.
More info below…

If you are new to the OriginalTrilogy•com then the following info may be of some assistance…
The Welcome to the OT.com; Introduce yourself in here thread is just that; a place to make your first post on here - and for more longstanding members to welcome new additions to our community.
Secondly, the About and Help sections may be of interest to you regarding this site and what the OriginalTrilogy•com is about.
Thirdly, the ’How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & answers to members’ queries thread should also hopefully be of some help as to many of the functions of the site, along with other related info as well.
The Announcements Section - including Site Rules & Guidelines, Fan Edit & Preservation Rules & FAQ, as well info for Signatures, Linking Policy for Downloads, and Plot Spoiler Policy (and much more) that may be of use too.
If you are having any issues with the site, have a question, an idea to improve the site, or would like to give some feedback - then these can be done in the Feedback Forum and General Assistance sections.
There are also several Index Threads pinned at the top of many respective sections of the OT•com - which may help members find various topics of discussion, fan edits, preservations and other projects etc.
To Join the OT.com Discord server! click on the link. There is also the OriginalTrilogy.com Twitter too.
’An OriginalTrilogy.com timeline thread - a history of the site and why & how it came to be…’ chronicles both the history of this site & also it’s continuing evolution.
The ’Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes’ thread by doubleofive contains many sources of information as to the numerous changes made to the Original Trilogy films over time - as well as serving as an insightful and comprehensive discussion thread and reference point on the subject.
Finally, the ’George Lucas: Unreliable Narrator & Time Travelling Revisionist…' thread attempts to highlight and catalogue some of the revisionism, altering of history and contradictory claims by George Lucas / Lucasfilm as to the formation, planning and history of the Star Wars films and universe therein.
A fair few people join here for a particular the Preservation Project, Fan Edit, documentary, blu ray or dvd cover etc. We ask that those who do… also have a look around; see if there are other Projects, Edits or works of interest to your liking. To give the Star Wars discussion threads a read through, or those in the Off Topic sections. To have a think about becoming a part of the community here; and consider not becoming a one-time poster… asking for a link to a project and to never be seen again.
Joining up here and then creating a new thread along the lines ‘Give me the link to X’, ‘Where is project Y’, or going straight into a project thread and posting ‘How do I get these?’ doesn’t really fly on here - and will likely be ignored or deleted. Taking the time to learn about a project - by reading through the project thread - as well as how to acquire them; simply making an effort to be part of the community here, and how this place works, can go a long way…
If you see any broken links, errors, or projects in an incorrect category etc, please let us know.
Also, if you have any suggestions for additional projects or threads to be added, please post them in here.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. 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?
