1. Learn to type complete sentences and use
punctuation properly. Typing a 400 word run-on
sentence will not gain you any respect. Most
intelligent folks will skip over what you have to
say.

2. No one is targeting you personally. Only if
someone specifially posts something cruel to you
about your mother or your heritage, should you
lash out and get angry.

3. If you are posting stuff just to be mean,
DON'T. We are all Star Wars fans here and we
like to talk about really obscure stuff, such as
how much a vial of glitterstim costs. It's
important to us.

4. We all have the right to complain about things
here and there, but complaining about
*everything* is rather pointless. You obviously
don't like Star Wars at all.

5. Most of all, be civil and try to have fun!

But anyway, I would like to say, that this is a

First of all, let me just say that I love the Jedi

this "Star Wars" fan between Episodes VI and I.

Second, I agree with everything Octavya wrote,
and I'm pleased that so far everyone has been
pretty respectful of each other. I'll admit my
nose has gotten out of joint a time or two on
this site, but that's the nature of spirited
discussion.

I'd really like to meet some of you someday!

Glitterstim is spice! And if you grab a handfull, it

neat. In the Star Wars universe, it's VERY
addictive, VERY expensive, and difficult to mine,
because of the sharp fibers.

I have noticed something in this forum that
disturbs me.
Some members seem to poke fun at the young
members. You may think it is harmless, but I
disagree. I don't care who e-mailed who or who
did what to whom. The yonger members that
post on this site are encouraged by our support.
GL's vision of SW is one that encompasses
multiple age groups. If we cannot acheive, or at
least attempt to achieve the same in this forum
than what is the prupose of this forum?
I agree that many people have many arodite and
intellectual things to say about the prequels, but
if we dissuade the younger fans than we are
hypocrites, because some day those young fans
will be as capable and intelligent as we are. I
believe that every young person on this site has
something important to say because they feel it
is important...
Remeber, we older folk are all teachers here.... If
we lose the younger element, than we lose SW
as it was meant to be seen!
Patience is the virtue of a Jedi!

That was a point that needed making. I've
noticed several people, um, disrespecting
younger members. I'll admit, when little kids post
something abusive they probably need a GENTLE
reminder not to do things like that, but flaming
them will only make them hate you and won't
accomplish anything. You can't expect young
kids to be able to carry on the kind of
intellectual discussion many of the adult
members here are well known for, and that's
fine. There's a place for both. If you see a post
that seems "dumb" to you, just ignore it.

Wow... this is the longest thread I've ever read
all the way through!

Jasman, as to your 'suck' comments... You
seemed to use a lot on the 'stuff s'
thread...

Well... As I read through this thread, I was
telling myself that I was glad I never got out of
whack. I just realized that's not quite true.
There have been a few instances where I've
gone a bit mad... I apoligize. Sorry!

As to multiple threads on the same topic... I've
created several threads that were *similar* to
another topic, but had differences that I
thought required a new thread. What do you
guys think about that?

About younger members... I'm new here within
the last week, and I'm about 14 years old. There
have been a few occasions where it *appears*
people have been skipping over my posts, but
not nearly as many as in other places. I admit, I
will occasionally make an immature comment, but
heck, during Physics, Cal III, Linear Algebra, and
every other cl****during the day, I'm expected
to be mature, so I've gotta let myself go
sometimes . Oops... was that a run-on
sentence? I'm not taking an english cl****this
semester...

So, basically what I'm trying to say is this:
Thanks for being mature and intelligent most
of the time, and I'm sorry if I don't quite return
the favor *all* of the time.

MTFBWY!!! I haven't typed that nearly enough

Paradox,
About my comments on the use of the word
"sucks," this all happened before you were here.
Here's the sequence of events that happened.
1. I started the "anti-trek?" thread, asking what
I thought was an innocent question, and got
totally toasted by Viper.
2. I posted my comments about it on this
thread.
3. Sushi started the "stuff sucks" thread as a
parody of all of this.
4. I joined in the s thread (and I invented the
use of to mean suck), in order to retaliate
against viper in a diplomatic and subtle way.
It was fun. You should have been here.

I think you over react a bit, Darth. Perhaps if
you feel under pressure you should take a step
back, take a break for a while.

Much as I thought that 'poodoo' thread was a
bit stupid, it wasn't really 'bashing' on anyone,
just countereing points put by someone
pretending to be someone they're not. If you
don't want your fingers burnt, don't put them in
the fire, is what I say.

The only things that should be deleted are real
insults, offensive language, offensive ideas to
people's religion and so on. Everything else
should be fair game within the topic of the
forum.

Attacking a person isn't the same as disputing a
persons information. She could have addressed
her argument to Mayor, not cutting him down by
making the thread about him.
Mayor and everyone else here are welcome to
be here. To set a double standard by ignoring
something that bashes another member is not
something I could do in clear conscious. Letting
that thread perpetuate would be telling Mayor
he is not welcome here. That's just wrong.

I got news for you: Mayor isn't welcome here,
as long as he's impersonating somebody he
isn't. Most people here seem to agree with this,
or hadn't you noticed?

This sort of thing is disliked on other forums, like
people posting as (the real) George Lucas on
AICN talkback, or as Harry Knowles, or as
personal friends of same. Nobody minds
discussion and speculation, but
misrepresentation is not wanted. Its not fair, its
decieving, and its rude. Its also stupid.
jasman
posted 10-22-98 03:17 AM CT (US)

Thank you, Sid.
DL, what I've said here and on the other thread
were not meant to be flames or personal
criticisms of you. I just think an administrator
has to be impartial in these matters, and my
perception is that you are letting your personal
opinions get in the way of your objectivity.
Some people seem not to have a firm grasp on
reality. One symptom of this is not knowing the
difference between an opinion and a fact. Mayor
seems to be such a person. Anyone who
represents their opinions as facts is a liar or a
fraud or worse. Chyren very effectively blew his
cover. Maybe he got a little too personal about
it, but the fact is that he reflects the position of
a large percentage of the people here. I think
people need protection from that kind of fraud
more than they need protection from those who
expose it.
Wedge
posted 10-22-98 03:20 AM CT (US)

I try and keep the peace by (hopefully)
articulating that I challenge people who flame
needlessly. I did so on Chyren's thread about
Mayor and was promptly told to "switch off."
Whatever.

It didn't phase me. What I'd like to see more of,
however, is the consistent practicing of what
we've talked (sic) about here. These forums are
mostly tasteful and I maintain it is the
responsibility of the elders to lead by example.

I hope I have tried to maintain that.

I'm not saying we can't have fun, we just need
to be more constructive, which, again, I believe
we are for the most part. I do not know if I am
qualified to moderate, but I try and do my part
to cite reason and wisdom as befitting a Jedi.

Thank you for your indulgence

You know what? I've been one of the most
vibrant complainers in the whole "let us complain
about mayor" campaign. But I'm seeing the
errors of my ways. I still disagree with simply
going to the administrators - it seems we ought
to be able to voice to the offenders our
disapproval. But it needs to be done properly. If
we can state our complaint in a tasteful yet not
condescending manner, we've gotten our point
across. if the problem persists, then is the time
to go to the administrator. If nothing is done
about it, I suppose it is up to us to endure and
ignore, for we have no other choices - we ought
to trust and respect those running this forum
too much to undermine their decisions, even if
we occasionally disagree with them. The
longevity and rectitude of the forum is bigger
than our occasional problems.

1. No cussin'.
2. No fightin'.
3. No trollin'
4. No inflammatory posts or offensive posts. In short, keep the peace and respect
others.
5. Don't post anything inappropriate for kids.
6. No offensive or inflammatory aliases.
7. We decide what falls in any of the above categories and will act accordingly.
Clicking on the
"Agree" button below means you accept those terms. If you don't like our descisions,
you can
always go to news:rec.arts.sf.starwars.misc, a public forum.
8. We'll do our best to warn you before we delete posts, close threads, or end your
account.
9. If you think someone is violating one of these rules, please alert us immediately
rather
than starting a flame war.
10. No blasters! No blasters!
11. You can go about your business.
12. Move along. Move along.

By the way, in spite of what it says in #8 above, we administrators WILL at our
discretion, immediately delete any threads that contain material that we deem to be
extremely inappropriate. There are people of all ages who enjoy these forums, and
anything that is not appropriate for all ages will be deleted and the offending party will
be immediately reported to the site management.

It is also unnecessary to get overly defensive about other people's posts. Most people
on here are fairly level-headed, but I think that some can work on being a little more
polite in their posting.

I would also like to add a comment for the administrators. Awhile ago, you folks were
very concerned about posts that don't relate to the prequels. Whenever something
was posted that belonged in Misc., or elsewhere, you guys would reply by saying that
this "belonged in ___ forum, not here and so I am closing it."

What happened to this? I feel that it was very beneficial in keeping structure and
order to this BB. If it is he fact that you guys cannot keep up with the volume (which
I can certainly understand) then I think we may need some more Admins to help out. I
think that this is a practice that needs to be re-instituted because it sets a good
precedent for future users to follow.

Has anyone read this or am I wasting my time? It was tough to find this classic and I think it is deserving of at least some attention by all members.

If you don't think that this thread is important any more, let me know and I will gladly stop reincarnating it. I do have better things to do then to find these old threads, but I do it in the hopes that it will percipitate new discussion. This doesn't seem to be the case.

Well, I read through some of it, but why have so few done so.

One thing I noticed is that counsellors in THE PREQUELS (SPOILERS ALLOWED) seem a bit more nasty than on the CLASSIC TRILOGY forum.

Or is it just me?

Good thing this leapt out at me. I too want to apologize for some caustic comments. I hope there wasn't any offense taken for some random harsh criticisms of certain rumored film actors, ideas for directors. I will let go of it and be done. Great forum, and what exactly is a nerf herder?
Chalking it up to bad flow, the old forcus interruptus. Peace JM Qui-braintree.

A nerf herder is someone who herds nerfs, of course! And the more scruffy-looking the better, I say!

Hope this works...

Bringing this thread back up because it is not only one of the oldest threads on this forum, but should be considered required reading by ALL members new and old alike.

Well, I agree with everything said in this. I think it's a very worthwhile kind of thing. But, I also think the P(SA) index threads are worthwhile, and no one seems to use them either. But maybe...just maybe...well, we can only hope.

I have to ask though. Where was this during the "dark time"? May-July? Man, we really could have used this back then.

bri, due to server problems that were just fixed a few days ago, no one was able to bring this thread back up. That's why it was missing.

The index threads weren't around because I was missing.

OK, that explains then the plethora of old threads finding their way back to the surface. I spent my afternoon reading The Mayor Chronicles in Misc. and having a good chuckle.

Nice to have you back YTaP. (I'm assuming that's what you mean by you were missing. If not...well...then...um...ignore that )
