Just a very quick return from me to post ‘Happy Birthday’ to the OriginalTrilogy•com on this milestone day.
20 years… ‘impressive, most impressive’ - for any website; but especially so for such a site as this… given the very nature of this extraordinary place.
Massive thanks to Jay for making this all possible - from conception, evolution, to his resolution in still being here some 20 years later. Giving us fans of the classic Original Trilogy a place to call home - still administering it all - and all achieved under the nose of the Empire.
Kudos and credit to Zion, Moth3r (RIP), Anchorhead, SilverWook and Tobar - for being custodians of this unique site and giving up their time and energies in helping run this most resolute community over the years.
For everyone who has posted on here over the 20 years; from the petition to the fan projects, from providing technical information to sharing stories and experiences, their insights and experiences with the Galaxy Far Far Away. And those who just simply provided some jokes, laughs and lifted spirits. To the invaluable tech guys and insightful reviewers. The old relentless PIF networkers and project archivists & uploaders. Those who suggested ideas, dreams and projects - many of which were achieved. The countless kind, generous, knowledgeable, humble and gracious posters on here over these past two decades that made this most resolute community what it is.
To borrow a phrase from a well-known Star Wars collecting youtube channel - and also old OT member…
…“the fans are doing the best work”.
