A bit late, but great job on the hanger! I am looking forward to seeing how you will make a snow effect on the floor. This entire project is turning out great and I can’t wait to see the final product 😄

P.S. This is my first post on this site!

I’m excited to see how you tackle Han & Luke kissing and the replacing of Ewoks for Wookies.

Damn, I never thought about retroactively adding in some LGBT spice.

It is with regret that i am leaving this site. I have enjoyed many years here but, with all the crap happening here lately with certain members and newbies trolling, thinking its ok to call people “retarded” ( amongst other things), it is no longer a fun place for me to be. I need to either leave or just take a VERY long break ( i suspect that it will be the former after my latest outburst to certain idiots on this site to which i apologise to Jay and the mods, but i had just had enough of those idiots).

With ESB:R being very close to completion i will either come back to let everyone know that it is complete and ready to go or make sure that you are all informed.

Thank you to everyone that has supported me and my projects over the years

I ain’t going anywhere. If I did I might get some work done…

Oh, maybe I should leave after all.

This is devastating. Adywan, you were the guy who brought me to this site in the first place - but now you’re gone, I see no reason to be here myself. OT has lost two members today.

…well, I hope you’re happy guys - your short fuses and outright hatefulness has ruined everything. Maybe that other guy was right, YOU ruined it all for us. Well, thanks for nothing I say!

I’ll see you on Fanres.

Ol’ George has the GOUT, I see.

It will be sad to lose you.

However, I have definitely been thinking the same thing, lately. Though it’s not related to the specific incident you describe, TFA brought in a huge influx of trolls and bigots. The latter have been especially loud in recent times, as they feel that they are standing up for themselves as the ‘anti-PC’, when 2+ years ago we would have just called them regular assholes (most of us still do). I still really like talking about the technical stuff with everyone here, but there’s no doubt that it’s becoming an increasingly unpleasant place. If I don’t leave, or at least take a break, I’ll probably see myself banned for a response of mine.

I’m not 100% sure if this is directed at me or not, but if it is, that’s ridiculous.

You know what? Close this place down. There’s no other way to control these animals.

Is it? Why?
There have been an influx of new members, yes, a lot of which (IKnowWhatYouDid… comes to mind) came here purely to be trolls.
However, I’ve lurked here since 2010 and in 2014 decided to finally create an account and actually engage in discussions. In all that time I’ve watched long standing members get away with breaking rules and being unofficial moderators just because they “aren’t new.”
As if being new immediately makes them unworthy of your presence: this place is not appealing to new people, and for a reason. Maybe stop deflecting the blame and own up to the fact that this site is slowly turning into an elitist hive-mind.

I made an error and broke a rule and owned up to it, but almost every other link I click on I see you bashing someone or making fun of them for not sharing your opinion on art. You don’t even bother discussing it with them, you just jump straight to making fun of them. Who does that?
Why is that fine, but all these “newbies” are scum for doing it?

The fact that you immediately jump to the conclusion of it being about you “ridiculous” says it all.

We will make our own forum. With Space Chess. And Twi’Leks.

And some people wonder why I’m a misanthrope… well, good luck trying to re-rail this site, after what the fascist scum of the universe has done to it!

This is a place where people come because, generally, they share some opinions that are fairly niche these days in mainstream fandom (and becoming more so by the year). It is not surprising that they have similar, yet not identical, opinions. You have made some valid points in your arguments, and you have made some seemingly stressed out emotional and unreasonable ones (and I have done similarly when stressed with some of the members here). But it would be easier to take your comments seriously if you stopped abusing the phrase “hive mind” when you mean approximately “consensus” in this community. You’re treating people’s opinions as if they are not their own. You can expect people to be upset by that. New-PT-forum jokes aside, there are many major SW sites and forums to discuss the SE and PT favorably. Being critical of them, in many communities, is going out of style rapidly.

I made an error and broke a rule and owned up to it, but almost every other link I click on I see you bashing someone or making fun of them for not sharing your opinion on art. You don’t even bother discussing it with them, you just jump straight to making fun of them. Who does that?

Frink teases fairly relentlessly. I used to share your view, somewhat, but his jokes are generally playful. I agree that it’s very easy for newbs to get the wrong idea and see it as hostile. He lays it on a bit too much, too often. And I agree that he often does it in lieu of saying anything meaningful. But there’s an obvious difference between him and the people spouting homophobic, misogynistic, racist nonsense.

As far as the more moderate “trolls” go, there are people who (unlike you) do not simply have different views on the PT. They are here as crusaders to argue for the PT/SE in any thread they can find. They were probably linked here from theforce.net or somewhere and are fighting for George’s honor. They know what’s coming to them, and that’s fine. It would be the same if I joined theforce.net and spammed every thread about how the OOT is supreme and the rest is trash. I would expect a harsh reaction and perhaps eventual banning if it became clear that I was there only to post such crap in the wrong places.
