Need an Original Trilogy Discussion Category

Author
Time

I think we need a category strictly dedicated to the OT; SW77, TESB, and ROTJ. We should move all topics related to it such as early drafts, script re-writing, preservations and fan-edits, artwork etc., into this new category. This is OT.com afterall.

A good idea mate - and one discussed in here just a few threads below yours:-

Some proposed changes to the categories in the Star Wars section of the OT.com…

😃

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?

A good idea! More Original Trilogy discussions in view on the site is best 😃
I like and enjoy the rest of Star Wars, but the Original Trilogy is why I am here, and many others too?

It is a slow process and will take a good while to sift through each of the 5000+ threads (202 pages) and put everything in the correct / most relevant section.

There may be some overlaps / crossover for a few threads or topics of conversation - though we’re always happy to hear all your thoughts and views on them, and in which section some threads may be more suited.
 

We’ll let everyone know when all the moving of threads is finally complete (or we think it is all done! 😃)

(26th December Edit: all the threads from the old ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ section have now been moved into their new sections… please let us know if you think we have made any mistakes and some threads are in the wrong section - thank you 😃
 
 

The main aim of this change was to slim down and re-organise the main ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ section; 5000+ threads was just got too large a place. With more new Star Wars releases on the way we thought it best to separate the Original Trilogy discussions (and also what the site is about - being able to watch the unaltered theatrical versions of the Original Trilogy, the suppression of the OOT & why, George’s claims & decisions, the various OT releases - and continuing changes made to them, and early site history / evolving OT preservation projects & OT fan edits etc) - from the other Star Wars content.

In doing so it seemed logical to also have an ‘Expanded Universe’ section too - featuring discussions on Star Wars books & comics, games & gaming, soundtracks & music, documentaries & spoofs, homages & fan films, fan clubs & cons, theme parks & rides etc.

Hopefully it should also make threads / discussions on certain subjects a little easier to find too…

All the “general” threads are in the EU section, took me ages to figure it out. No worries, I’ll get there eventually.

I love the new sections, especially having an Original Trilogy specific forum. But man, I got a take a break for a while - so much negativity and toxicity around of late. I hope to be back soon when it dials back a bit.

Thank you for your efforts mods, and other many helpful people on here too. Happy Holidays.

All the threads from the old ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ section have now been moved into their new sections…

30th December Edit: The Index Threads for the three ‘new’ categories have been updated too 😃

Please let us know if you think we have made any mistakes - that some threads are in the wrong section etc - or if you’d like certain threads added to the Index Threads etc thank you 😃

Thank you moderators for the change, if I see threads in the incorrect section I will post it in here.

After the release of Episode IX has gone I hope there will be conversation on the Original Trilogy - or also new Star Wars to come! 😃

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.

👍

Thank for explanation above, ooj. In the future would the mods please consider separating the ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ from ‘The Expanded Universe’ - placing them into a different section?

It would make it a lot easier to navigate through the topics in there and make them more distinct from each other.

Perhaps, move the ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ section in with the quieter ‘Toys & Memorabilia’ section instead?
&nnbsp;

So it would read as:

Original Trilogy Discussion
Beyond the Original Trilogy
Theatrical Cuts vs. Subsequent Releases
The Expanded Universe
General Star Wars Discussion
 

This is just my suggestion, I’m sure others have theirs too!

You guys are awesome for the work you all put in here. Thank you.

^ Will do on the consideration, mate - especially if others also agree (or have similar suggestions). And nice idea too.
