Any links to fan edits. Thanks. (Aka a quick lesson on how NOT to ask for projects on here)

I don’t think many people are going to help you if you post like this - it seems you haven’t bothered to read the ‘useful info’ threads, or the Welcome thread, or ‘About’, Or ‘Help’, or the Index threads, or ‘how do I do this on the site?’ info, or the rules, or looked around the site to see how this place functions - where you would have found the information needed on how to try and acquire projects listed on here.

A number of other people here have previously tried threads like this - ‘give me the links - thanks’ - and it didn’t work out well for them.

It reeks of… 'give me all your long hard work for free - as I can’t be bothered to read up on your project thread(s) or on how this place works. I have nothing to contribute, or offer you guys back, apart from impatience and an attitude of ‘gimme’, a pretty worthless ‘thanks’, and ‘I couldn’t even post some text in the OP of my own thread asking for links’’ attitude.

Sorry if that seems harsh, though it is also true?
 

From the:-

I have found a Fan Edit / Preservation I am interested in - but don’t know how to get / acquire / download it?

of the:-

‘How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & answers to members’ queries thread (it is also linked in many ‘useful info’ threads too):-

Read through the thread of the project you are interest in - there is usually information in there (often in the very first post) on how to acquire a project.

If no such information is in the thread… then send a polite PM to the author / owner of the project (which is usually the creator of the thread on here too) - and after that a little bit of patience is required. It is likely that the Fan Edit author / owner isn’t online every day - or even every week - and may have a ton of queries or other stuff to get through before dealing with your request.

If you haven’t heard back after some time, then let it be known that you are seeking a copy by making a post in the relevant thread; hopefully other members on here may be in a position to help you.

Also, fellow members may be more likely to help you out if you are an active member of the community here - you don’t have to be a fellow fan editor, preservationist, tech wiz, artistic or skilled etc; just a member that has made, or is making, an effort.
 

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.

Many of the projects on here have been undertaken by volunteers or enthusiasts who’ve devoted considerable time, effort, dedication and some expense… to locate, preserve, restore & archive - or edit - films and TV programs in their best possible presentation. This is often with painstaking commitment - yet all projects are available for free; not to mention our members also improving upon & sharing techniques, knowledge, technical assistance, experiences - and a few stories, along the way…
 

It may also be worth checking some of the other Fan Edit sites around - sometimes it can just come down to good fortune if you acquire a project or not. Being rude, impatient, making repeated requests, or ranting about how unfair it all is - or what a rubbish system this is - won’t likely get you any help that may have otherwise been coming your way…

Some projects also have their own websites, blogs, youtube / vimeo / dailymotion / or twitter and facebook pages etc too - so it’s worth checking your online search engine of choice - to see just what is out there on the internet as well.

 

Please remember to leave some feedback…

A great deal of time, love and effort going into making many of the projects that appear here - so if and when you do watch an Edit or project, then please remember to leave some feedback for the Editor / Preservationist etc - whether on a technical level, ideas for additional changes / edits or alternatives, some constructive criticism (keep it civil), how much you enjoyed it, or even just a simple thank you…
 

A reminder…

Joining up here and then creating a new thread along the lines ‘Give me the link to X’, ‘Where is project Y?’, ‘Give me the download links’, 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.

Take the time to read through a project thread - especially the opening post - for information on how acquire a project. Or, if no such advice or info in the project thread exists… follow the information in here.
 

General Info…

Fan Edit & project authors are responsible for the availability / distribution of their releases - it may well be frustrating that you have found information on a long sought-after project on here (or elsewhere) - and yet have no way of acquiring it, though unfortunately on occasion that is the way it is…

 
 

An important rule on many a Fan Project site is… ‘Before obtaining any fan project, you must be in ownership of the official retail release’.

Another rule is do not post direct download links to Fan Edits or Preservations etc on this site (though links to a short demo or trailer is fine) - the What kind of download links can I post on this site? post contains more info & details.

Note: OriginalTrilogy•com is NOT responsible for the availability of ANY Fan Edits or Preservation projects that appear in threads on the site - that responsibility lies with the owner / author of the respective project.
 

 

It seems you didn’t see these two parts?:-

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.

Good luck with getting the links 😃
