Please leave some feedback for the fan projects on here - or even a review…
and join in with the discussions on this forum!
A great deal of time, love, dedication, and effort… goes into the making of near-on all the projects that appear on here.
So if and when you do watch an Edit or Project, please remember to leave some feedback for the Editor / Preservationist - whether on a technical level, or for ideas for additional changes / edits or alternatives, some constructive criticism, any glitches or technical issues you may have noticed, how much you enjoyed it, or even just a simple ‘thank you’…
Reviews are very much appreciated and valued by the project creators - helping them improve for any future versions - or for any other prospective projects.
Nobody is expecting a ‘War and Peace’ length review - or anyone to go to Dostoevsky levels of writing…
Just a few words, or a couple of lines or even paragraphs… of what you enjoyed, what you didn’t, any constructive ideas or suggestions for a future version or release; whether simple tweaks - or something on a more substantial level.
As well as mentioning any glitches or technical issues you may have come across while watching the project.
For reference / example… there is a quality FanEdit Reviews - Post Your Reviews Here thread by Vultural, to peruse for ideas and inspiration etc.
Hopefully we’ll also see someone create a similar thread for ‘Fan Preservation Reviews’.
(Vultural’s A few reviews . . (film or TV) thread, in the Media forum, is also very much worth a look through.
For anyone technically minded or has completed a few projects themselves - and has a little spare time time, or wishes to help other creatives on here out - any assistance given in the oft-overlooked How-To’s and Technical Discussions is most welcome.
NOTE: Many editors & preservationists choose not to make their projects available to ‘hit & runners’ or people with a post history of mainly just asking for links to projects - which is completely up to them. That some people join up here looking to simply take - instead of give something back; not even leaving a simple ‘thank you’, feedback or review, or join in with the community here… and instead ask for more and more projects… is not encouraged. Such requests may likely be ignored.
When I was a moderator I was amazed at the amount of PMs I would receive asking for - or even demanding - to be given links to fan projects located on here. These were in the main from ‘hit and runners’ - from people with 10-30 posts to their name full of link requests… and nothing else.
No ‘thank you’, no feedback, no reviews…
Not even joining in various fan project discussions, or the discourse on ‘Star Wars’ boards, or hanging out and chatting with other members here in the ‘Off Topic’ section. They also seemed to be offended at the suggestion they would likely have a better chance of receiving such links for projects… if they were active members of the community on here.
Don’t be like them. Leeches. Without even a token or cursory attempt at joining in with, or being a part of, the community here.
Leave some feedback, a review, or even a genuine ‘thank you’. And join in with the discussions on here… 👍
