Taking some time off for studies. See you all after Christmas - so Merry Christmas if you celebrate it and Happy Holidays if you don’t.

Upon booting up my laptop today, it created a loud, harsh hum. The hum subsided seconds later, but the laptop’s been behaving erratically as of late, so I’m afraid it may be nearing the end of it’s life. And I don’t have a backup computer.

I’m not planning on departing, but if I should vanish into the ether one day soon, that’ll be the reason why.

Due to some circumstances I shall not name, I am leaving here. Salutations and I wish you all the best.

Being the sock of a previously banned member usually has that effect.

Though I genuinely wish you the best of luck for the future elsewhere.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? 
Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Infrequent poster, frequent lurker, signing off.

I have made my peace with the fact that the OOT will never be officially restored & released.

It’s very liberating & bittersweet.

I remember the excitement around the first BluRay release - could the originals be included!?!
Then the 40th Anniversary - surely there would be something announced then!?!
John Landis! He must know what’s happening, right!?! (Spoiler alert: WRONG)
Then the release of Ep IX - wait, the OOT is bound to be released as part of a Saga box set!?!
Then… What about the 45th anniversary!?! The 50th!?! Etc. Etc.

  • Insanity, my friends, is doing the same thing over & over, and expecting different results 😃

Thanks to all here who have created such fantastic fan restorations. You were, and are, our only Hope.

Well, I suppose I’d better head out. It’s been fun, but I just can’t bring myself to contribute anymore.

Until tomorrow, anyway.

JEDIT: I’m back! Yay!

What a grand and intoxicating innocence. How could you be so naive? There is no escape. Come, lay down your weapons. It is not too late for my mercy.

im really tired of Star Wars and there’s a whole great big world outside that i would like to explore. i might return some day, but probably not unless i have some genuius scheme or plan when it comes to editing. i had lots of fun here over the last couple years but its time for me to move on 💕

i wish you all the best!

unless you’re some kind of vile homophobic, transphobic, or racist bigot, in which case you are exempt from my good wishes : ) 💕

i had lots of fun!!! : ) ❤🧡💛💚💙💜🤎🖤🤍

I’m sorry to read that Snooker, though am glad you have had a fun time on here.

You WILL be missed - and you know where we are if you ever want to drop by - or if you get that ‘editing itch’ again.

Thank you for all your contributions and efforts on here. I hope life treats you well.

👍

I regret to hear that, too, snooker, but I can’t say I blame you. I hope it doesn’t have anything to do with criticism from my thread of the recent work you’d done for TROS:A.

Unrelated: I currently have 7102 posts, amassed over the course of nearly 17 years. At the average rate, I’d reach 9000 in 2024. Perhaps that would be the right moment to step away. Hard to say.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I’ll miss seeing your lovely posts snooker! You were one of the nicest most supportive members here, and I found your sensibilities regarding the franchise refreshing in contrast to a lot of other SW fans.

While we’re at it, I feel like I’ve been in the same boat as snooker for a while now - I just don’t have the willpower to not check this site as part of some boredom autopilot. I haven’t really updated my edits in while because I’m just so burnt out on Star Wars. I pretty much shitpost to make myself feel involved, but I can’t say I really am. If it weren’t for people waiting on my finished edits to use in their own projects I’d probably be gone by now too lmao.

Make that three of us.

So long, snooker. May the zephyr take you high across the sky, butterfly (forgive me the poor poetry).

I’m feeling the same way also. The constant arguing and negativity in the Star Wars fan base is exhausting, and I just don’t feel much passion for Star Wars as a franchise anymore.

I’ve been considering leaving this website, since it’s pretty much my only connection to the Star Wars fan base right now, but I can’t bring myself to do it. Checking this website has just become a habit for me, and it’s gonna be hard to let go.

I used to feel similar, but have since jettisoned the negative aspects of fandom from my viewing habbits.

No more toxic or hating videos on youtube, or twitter, or from sites that promote such views and content. And there still many good sites and forums out there still, and youtube channels too. These good places soon fill my youtube and twitter recommendations/likes so I do not see the toxic channels anymore.

I still get to engage with others with a wide range of views and intepretations, but without the hate and repeated negativity.

Overall this place is very good for such respectful views, I think some also take this site for granted, and that we would be worse off without sites such as this one.

Everyone can still contribute to make it an even better place 😃 And if not on this place then we can for the next place, and the next.

It has been quite a while, but every 5 years or so I come back. I used to post a lot here about 15 years ago. How are you? Cheerio, see you in 2025!

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.
