    Welcome to the Classic Trilogy Forum, for discussions about the Original Trilogy of Star Wars/Episode IV: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.

    This includes the initial theatrical versions (often referred to as the OOT - the 'Original Original Trilogy'), the altered re-release of Star Wars, the 1997 Special Editions, and the various versions released on home video.

    This is not the place for canon debates, "What-if?" threads or discussing the Expanded Universe.
    For discussions which cover broader subjects relating to the the six-episode Star Wars Saga, head on over the the Star Wars Saga In-Depth forum.

    Before starting a new thread, please take a look at the existing threads first to see if your topic is already being discussed.

    The Jedi Council Forums Rules and the Terms of Service must be followed at all times. Personal attacks and insults, flame wars and trolling will not be tolerated. As a rule - films, not fans, posts, not posters.

    Some clarification regarding references to the Expanded Universe in this forum:

    This is a forum for discussing the three films of the Classic/Original Trilogy, not the various spin-off novels, comics et al. While there will always be a certain amount of flexibility when it comes to instances which are not explained in the films, EU references must be identified as such, and not laboured upon as being somehow definitive.
    This forum is for discussing the films of the Classic/Original Trilogy. The 'canon' established by Lucasfilm which includes the Expanded Universe is not necessarily relevant.

    Discussions focused upon EU-only topics - e.g. Grand Admiral Thrawn, the cloned Emperor Palpatine, KOTOR-era Sith and so on - are not permitted. Threads started which address such topics will be locked or redirected immediately, as will any threads which degenerate into discussion solely around such EU material.

    There are a number of 'EU' sources which can be considered grey areas and are permitted to a certain extent - these include (but are not necessarily limited to) the film novelisations, the Star Wars Holiday Special, the Ewok films, and the novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye.

    As stated above, there must be a certain amount of flexibility and understanding about the EU spilling into this forum on occasion. However, if anyone wishes to discuss a topic with no EU material whatsoever coming into it, please state so very clearly in the thread title or opening post.

    The following is our policy on the use of the Reporting Function. It is our hope that this will clarify what the goal is behind the feature and curtail some of the unnecessary and inappropriate usage.

    The purpose of the Report Function is to alert the moderator(s) to flagrant and obvious rule violations that may require moderator action. The Report Function should be used to report serious trolling, flaming, spamming, language violations or a spamvertiser. Increasingly, the Report Function is being used by members as a way to 'punish' another user because of a difference of opinion. This is not an acceptable use of the Report Function. Should you have a question as to whether another user is 'flaming' or 'trolling', you should contact the forum moderator via PM for clarification or to discuss the situation - please do not utilize the Report Function in for instances that are not (as previously stated) flagrant and obvious rule violations.

    Should a user abuse the Report Function, that user may be subject to a ban. Abuse is generally defined as utilizing the Report Function multiple times for issues ranging from a difference of opinion to a general complaint about another user. We will not attempt to outline every scenario of abuse in this policy. Bans will be issued after review by the forum mods and/or an administrator and may range from 24 hours or longer depending on the severity of the abuse.
