Updating the Thread Indexes

Author
Time
I've been wanting to update the index threads for a while now. I wanted to dive into the bowels of this board and dig up all the relevant threads that deserve to be included in both the Index of Linked Noteworthy Threads and The big DVD thread index. But since I'm busy working on other things like new X0 articles and you guys are here anyway, I thought you could help me out.

If you can think of any thread that deserves to go into either one of these indexes, please post it here. Any thread on any existing edit, or any non-abandoned work in progress is a candidate. Also any threads dealing with any facet of the edit process, such as "anamorphic vs. letterbox discussion," "Definitive Collection DVD Covers," or the "OT glitches and fixes thread" are worthy candidates.

I know several of you have PM'd me and requested your threads be included. If you could post those requests again here as well that would be a big help. Going through hundreds of PMs to find your request could take a while.

Whoever posts the most threads gets a cookie.

My Projects:
[Holiday Special Hybrid DVD v2]
[X0 Project]
[Backstroke of the West DVD]
[ROTS Theatrical DVD]

Sadly it seems the 'Changes made to the Original Trilogy over the years...' thread has disappeared (as well as the informative 'Another 2004 Trilogy DVD screw-up?' thread - perhaps links to Mentasm's excellent OT Changes Threads on dvdanswers.com would be a pointer for anyone wishing to find more info:-

Episode 4 - http://www.dvdanswers.com/index.php?r=0&s=8&c=28

Episode 5 - http://www.dvdanswers.com/index.php?s=8&c=29

Episode 6 - http://www.dvdanswers.com/index.php?s=8&c=7867673


there is also an intriguing source for changes made from 1977 to 1997, here:-

Zion - is it possible to protect all the linked threads featured in the two locked 'FAQ style 'threads so they will not be deleted/disappear in the future?

How about the DVD review thread?

Episode II: Shroud of the Dark Side

The "most ambitious fan edit" ever.

"Taking hamburger and reconstructing it into a cow."

"This will blow people's minds."

The highlight is: Anakin Skywalker is dubbed, just as Darth Vader was in the OT. The new Anakin has a lower and darker voice and gives a superior performance to Hayden. This is actually a creative collaboration with many, including Mark Haslett, Commander Courage, Rebel11_38 (who did the opening crawl), Twister111, MagnoliaFan, and MANY, many others. It will be out on DVD in 2006, with a trailer prior to that.

Episode II: Shroud of the Dark Side

Suggestions for updating the "big DVD thread index":

move Cowclops v2 to "complete" OT preservations

move The Lancer DVD project to Fan edits (primarily DVD based)

add the Dark/Sega set to "complete" OT preservations (click here)

add Citizen's set to "ongoing" OT preservations (click here)

I also think that the following threads should be moved here from the General Discussion forum:

-Magnoliafan Edits- "Balance" and "Clone War"
-Episode II: Shroud of the Dark Side
-Episode 3: Fan Editing Discussion

They are only in that forum to begin with because they were created before this became an editing forum.

Thanks

I feel Tellan's link should be moved from "laserdisc sourced" to "primarily DVD sourced".
And the Holiday Special is not laserdisc or DVD; perhaps it should be moved to "other Star Wars DVDs of interest"?

Shouldn't the Dark/Sega Special Collection link should be moved from "ongoing projects" to "completed"?
Perhaps RowMan's link should be moved to "other Star Wars DVDs of interest" alongside babyhum & Ocpmovie's extras stuff?
The Skywalker Legacy seems like a fan edit.

Also, Dark_Jedi's "FACES" thread can be added under "completed".

As the editor, I can safely say that Skywalker Legacy is indeed a fan edit. Thanks for adding me to the list!
