    Also, discussions about release dates should go in the release date thread, and discussions about the 35mm film news should go in the thread that was created for that. Thanks.

    Just a suggestion here:

    If this thread is only for confirmed news, and all discussions are to take place in other threads, then perhaps a new thread should be created, locked, and pinned to the tops of the threads.

    This new thread would only be modified by a mod when there is actual confirmed news.

    To have to read through 56 pages for confirmed news, when in reality there is only enough news to fill maybe 1 or 2 pages kinda defeats the purpose.

    It seems that this thread has been derailed and beyond hope of repair.

    if the members of this body are incapable of following the thread rules, I suggest a new thread is needed. I move for a vote for a new thread.

    Yep, sounds like a good idea. A mod only thread with Official announcements added as they happen.
    That way, if someone's new to the boards or just out of the loop for a time he can easily skim through the most important things in just a page or two.

    Maybe there could be 2 threads then, one for mods to post announcements, another for discussion of these announcements (otherwise, there will be a new thread discussing each announcement). Right now, it isn't all that meaningful, since we are not exactly overwhelmed with the volume of official announcements and info.

    Do you guys remember when the official site was putting out those teaser images for Episode 1 and that very first one was a flipped and twirled image of a Republic Cruiser and that is all we had to go by for months?

    OK, we've heard the voices of the people and agree with your points about this thread. This thread shall be locked and retitled, and it will be used by mods for posting of officially confirmed announcements and information. As it's already been, the Announcements Discussion thread should be used for all speculative discussion about possible announcements and information. And once things have been made official, spin-off threads about those official items can / will be created as needed.
