The following is a message from oojason:
There was a significant difference of opinion over how a decision was reached / acted upon in the moderation of the site; significant enough for me to decide I could not continue on the OT - either as moderator or member. I decided it would be best for everyone that I left the site immediately.
I won’t be changing my mind and returning to the site (honestly - this time around! 😉). I have no idea where the idea or rumour came from that I am on a ‘sabbatical’ - that is simply not true.
These type of decisions and partings occur on every forum / site over time - people come and people go. It is a little sad, yet no big deal in the ongoing functioning of the site - it will continue on as it always has. ✊
There are no bad feelings - and I genuinely and heartfeltfully wish all the members, site staff, and the site, all the very best for the future.
Thank you for all the ‘enquiries’, ‘thanks’, and ‘best of luck’ messages sent my way through the various online channels - they are very much appreciated. Just to be clear… I will be not be talking about the details or circumstances about my decision to leave the site - nor am I starting up my own site, or moderating elsewhere etc. The OT is still one of the best Star Wars site around and is unique in its outlook, content and goals - so it is up to all you great people to continue upon that - and make the OT even better.
May The Force, and the unaltered theatrical Original Trilogy, Be With You all… Always.
ps - ‘Now can we all please get back on topic; whatever that is…’ (I just had to say that again - one last time!) 😉
