Hes not answering PM’s

Hi and welcome 😃

You’ve been here for two/three days now, and these are the only posts you’ve made - within a minute of each other… bumping a thread because someone has not replied back to you in those two/three days?
 

As alleycat says clearly in his Opening Post:-

“PM me for the links, contributing/long term members only please.”
 

^ That may be the reason why alleycat hasn’t got back to you (yet).

Though it could be that alleycat is busy and just hasn’t got around to answering your PM (it could take weeks before receiving a reply) - or many other reasons…
 

Meanwhile, whilst you are waiting, it may be worth giving this a read:-

I have found a Fan Edit / Preservation I am interested in - but don’t know how to get / acquire / download it? post - in the ‘How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & replies to members’ FAQs… thread, in the ‘General Assistance’ forum…

and take a look around the place to get a feel for how it works - and how it doesn’t…
 

Stay patient mate 👍

Reorganising Star Wars Fanedits
Time

I think I’ll copy Gonk’s useful post layout to use below (thanks Gonk)

All four main Fan Project sections have now been re-organised - with their respective ‘Index & Help threads’ also updated (along with a sort through of ‘Toys & Memorabilia’ and an Index thread being created for that too):-
 

Toys & Memorabilia | Collections, Toys and Memorabilia - an Index of Discussion Threads…

Star Wars Preservation | An Index & Help Thread for Star Wars Preservations… • Updated •

Star Wars Fan Edits and Other Projects | An Index & Help Thread for Star Wars Fan Edits and Other Projects… • Updated •

Preservation of Other Properties | An Index & Help Thread for Preservation of Other Properties… • Updated •

Fan Edits & Projects for Other Properties | An Index & Help Thread for Fan Edits & Projects for Other Properties… • Updated •

 
The above re-organisation started in April - and was finished earlier today; just shy of 6,600-6,800 threads in total.

Near on every thread in the four main ‘Fan Project’ sections are now marked up to indicate their purpose and also their status; ie, whether they are ‘info’ threads, ‘info or help wanted’ threads, ‘help: looking for…’, or project threads - whether at the ‘idea’ stage, a ‘WIP’, ‘help wanted’, ‘finished’, ‘unfinished’, ‘on hiatus’ etc.

The four ‘Index & Help Threads’ in the ‘Fan Project’ sections… can be used to more easily ascertain which projects are ‘finished’, ‘a WIP’, or ‘on hiatus’ etc - as well as useful information, discussion, ideas, & unfinished project threads also listed in them.
 

Preservationists and Fan Editors have also been asked (in the ‘Index & Help threads’) to keep the status of their projects updated in their respective threads - whether it is an Idea, a WIP, Released, or Unfinished etc…
 

We do also ask that members not post requests for links in threads (unless asked to by the editor / preservationist) to try and keep discussions & feedback flowing (rather than have a flurry of ‘Request’ or ‘PM sent’ messages disputing the conversations in these threads) - yet people don’t often look around to read the Rules, Help threads, or Indexes before posting. And some ‘hit & runners’ do not care / take any notice anyway.

The mod staff could post the above link and info in every single project thread on here - and people would still post requests in these threads. Much like the numerous ‘request threads’ for the Despecialized - 40-50 separate request threads merged into a single thread here some time ago (and many more in the site’s Trash Compactor).

Also, there are some people such as this pleasant guy here (his later ‘f*** off and die’ etc follow-up post has been removed) - despite actually being given links to the information to acquire the project he was seeking.

 

The glut of ‘Markdown posts’ - have previously been removed a long while ago. Some may have been overlooked or slipped through our fingers… though anyone is welcome to let the mods know of any such markdown posts remaining (outside of threads talking about Markdown, that is 😉 ) - and we’ll delete or edit them.

The same applies for any accidental ‘Double’ or ‘Triple’ posts made on here - and obviously for any spam too.

 

Hopefully the re-organisation / sort through will prove beneficial to everyone interested in the Fan Projects featured on this site - as well as information and discussions on and about them.

There’ll likely be a few errors, mis-labelled threads, or maybe still overlooked projects during the re-organisation - so please do let us know if you see any mistakes or faux pas.

As always… we need the kind help and input of members to help maintain this great place - to also help both the site and the community here thrive.
 
Any ideas and suggestions for improvements (or criticisms) can be posted up - or continued if the subject is already being discussed - in the site’s Feedback Forum.
 

MTFBWY & Thank you 👍

Always good to see the two theatrical Ewok films get some love and attention - nice one Rancor022 😃

And that there are 1080p and 4K versions available too.
 

Fellow top man Rikter has knocked up some quality covers and disc art for these too:-

Making The first politics thread visible once more (but still locked)
Time

Hi Handman - as explained in this and other threads… the moderators have no inclination to being this thread back (even if we could find the thing).

The original Politics thread is located somewhere in a 3,500 thread Trash section… and we also have no inclination of looking through that cesspit to find this thread.

However, the original Politics thread - as a ‘historical document’, of pre-‘social media’ times, can be viewed via Archive.org - apparently much of it - though not all, is still available on there.

I liked it - looks like it could be a lot of fun 😃

I know it has been nearly two years, though hope you come back to this one day…?

im really tired of Star Wars and there’s a whole great big world outside that i would like to explore. i might return some day, but probably not unless i have some genuius scheme or plan when it comes to editing. i had lots of fun here over the last couple years but its time for me to move on 💕

i wish you all the best!

unless you’re some kind of vile homophobic, transphobic, or racist bigot, in which case you are exempt from my good wishes : ) 💕

I’m sorry to read that Snooker, though am glad you have had a fun time on here.

You WILL be missed - and you know where we are if you ever want to drop by - or if you get that ‘editing itch’ again.

Thank you for all your contributions and efforts on here. I hope life treats you well.
