List of most current preservation versions (harmy's despecialized, 4k77, 4k83)
Time

Other similar websites have been closed down for having links on them, and the various rightsholders and authorities are likely watching this place and others ready to shut these sites down if they go too far.

I think you may not be using the word “literally” correctly there. Also “there’s no risk” - the whole site would indeed be at risk. I apologize if that appears harsh.

I mean, are there other public sites like this one out there that have links to thousands of projects out in the open?

Though I will defer to the mods, other people who run the place, and those who have contributed to the site for many years such as Chainsaw and CatBus.

If other renowned editors put links up on their sites or facebook that is the risk they take on there. I am very happy that no links are allowed on here. We want this place, this creative community, this library of information to be around for a long long time to come, not taken down due to people wanting it easy and wanting links everywhere, I think?

UFO's & other anomalies ... do you believe?
Time

I apoligize for the bump, but given the timing:-

‘The US Navy has confirmed that certain purported UFO videos made public over the past several years do indeed show “unidentified aerial phenomena”’ - https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1174651880305307648

article here: https://edition.cnn.com/2019/09/18/politics/navy-confirms-ufo-videos-trnd/index.html?utm_content=2019-09-19T11%3A50%3A04
 

I always knew it would be the Navy that folded first - see you all at Area 51 tomorrow 😉

Any Battlestar Galactica fans here?
Time

I was reading an article on the new Star Wars comics that oojason posted, and caught this link to a new article in the corner of it, regarding a new Battlestar Galactica series:

‘NBC’s Battlestar Galactica ‘Reboot’ Isn’t a Reboot After All’ - https://www.cbr.com/nbcs-battlestar-galactica-reboot-isnt-reboot

I’d no idea they were even doing a new series, let alone one by Sam Esmail (Mr Robot), and with the endorsement of Ron Moore too. But am very much looking forward to finding out more about it!

The launch date of April 2020 doesn’t seem very far away 😃

An exact quote from Lucas on Greedo shooting first.
Time

I am not joined up to twitter but that was one informative read. Thankyou doubleofive and others in this thread.
I still love George for creating all this and seeing it though the difficulties he had, but some of his claims are quite flimsy or fanciful to say the least. Surely he must know his words would came back to haunt him given how Star Wars is so often scrutinized and written about so much?

The 80s
Time

Sorry for the bump, you guys have some great threads and projects on here.

I was born in '68 so really I grew up in the 1980’s. It was a great time - playing outside most of the year, computer games taking off, bmx bikes, Star Wars! and host of other cool, and not so cool, sci-fi films and TV. The music was pretty great too, though got a bit weird and sataurated with manufactured pop towards the end of the decade. Still some great underground scenes as well.

A shame about the 90’s though 😉

An <strong>Index Thread</strong> (and more) for <strong><em>Preservation of Other Properties...</em></strong>
Time

I am a long time lurker and have finally decided to ‘take the plunge’ and join up here after reading about so many great projects - esepcially the preservations.

Like Vultural said in the one of the other index threads, thank you so much for these. It makes it a LOT easier to find all the variouse edits and projects - and discussions as well.

And also that this place appears to be one of the few Star Wars online websites that hasn’t ripped itself apart by hating on the newer Star Wars releases, or just choosing to hate on them.
