The Index Categories Are:-

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.

And, 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.

Finally, the A centralised collection of OT.com threads supporting the call for an official release of the unaltered theatrical version of the Original Trilogy films | + Info on how you can help… thread - highlighting just a few of the discussion threads on here which cover some of the wider issues and differing angles on the topic at hand.

I understand why there is a ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ forum that focuses on content or discussions between the Original Trilogy and Sequles, or Prequels, or Standalone films, and the tv series etc… and why there is a forum for the ‘Expanded Universe’ content too. But why are both sections coupled together in here?

Why not have seperate forums for each?
 

Quality Index Threads by the way, mods. It makes it a lot easier to find certain threads and topics of conversation 😃

Hiya Fated, the main reasons why the two respective sections are in the same forum category are…

  • We wanted to keep certain topics of conversation separate from each other; one forum dedicated for the OT, one for onscreen content outside of the OT, plus one for discussing aspects of both - yet also the wider GFFA as a whole.

  • Feedback from members on the subject of the forum re-organisation suggested they didn’t want too many new forum categories created to have to sift through. (So we whittled it down to an additional two new categories.)

  • We just weren’t sure just how many threads there would be for a ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ section after the old 5000+ thread forum was split into ‘Original Trilogy’, ‘Beyond the OT’ and ‘The EU’. (I’d guess at around 300 threads.)
     

If there is enough demand to separate them… this may change - though we don’t think it’ll happen anytime soon, mate.
 

If anyone has any suggestions or further questions (as well as requests to separate ‘The Expanded Universe’ & ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ sections) feel free to post them up in the site’s Feedback Forum - thank you.

👍
