    I know, I know--you people have heard more than enough from me already. But the new site I'm doing is officially official as of today, and Havac, GrandAdmiralJello, s65horsey, Jedi Ben and I (plus some others) would just love for you to check it out. Behold, a press-release-looking thing!
    This thread will now wallow here for an eternity of random updates and nagging, after first being stickied for, I'm certain, a period of many months.

    PS - precedent. [face_devil]

    Cool! Though you should have waited until 11:38 tonight. :p

    Also, good to see users like some and others finally getting the recognition they deserve! :p

    Well, since I am just "some", not officially named, I might now select "Hm, neat" instead of "OMG COOPER IS MY HERO". :p[face_devil]

    Jokes aside folks, go check out the site. The articles that are already up are extremely well written and very well thought out. Under Coop's guidance, I think this site could really have some legs and grow. [face_peace]

    The name of your site isn't catchy enough. Research suggests Star Wars fans would respond more enthusiastically to words like "Legacy" and "Fate", offering a greater chance of success for what I'm sure is a well planned project that will result in a fantastic site of the highest quality.

    Also, needs more genre articles. Get that Havac person back to work.

    I would love to devote an entire article to Ackbar, but Coop is a wise editor-in-chief. He makes me work on articles with broader appeal. Hopefully the Fleet Junkie in me will get to come out at one point... [face_whistling]

    :D

    Nick, stop messing around and get back to "Top ten pictures of animals dressed like AT-ATs".

    *Sighs*

    Yes sir. I live to serve. I cannot wait to finish that article, so I can devote my energies to an article extolling the virtues of rehashing the Battle of Hoth from 500 different perspectives, cause it hasn't really been covered before...

    Does that mean I can't have a certain daughter of a certain artist's phone number?

    I can't wait until Coop puts up my post ranking the characters that most contradict the EU.

    I voted don't care.

    But it was a lie, because Luke and I both care. I think we've got a fantastic site here for you and I'm really excited about going forward with this. I feel like we're doing something new and different, and I think it's going to have a really cool tone. Feel free to leave comments -- I look forward to some spirited discussions.

    Thanks also to Coop for letting me get in on the ground floor of this, because I think he had a fantastic idea and it's going to be great.

    I didn't vote, but...looks good. I love the "Simple Tricks" and "Nonsense" links at the top with "Not a Committee" in the drop-down menu. [face_laugh]

    Give me a year and let me find my sister. You will get an act worthy of epic proportions. Filmed in Hollywood. We will spare no expenses, except on alcohol, of which we will no doubt need a great deal of. I may even hire poor Chewbacca89 because I think he's been feeling left out as of late.

    We were planning on calling it DarkFateOfTheLegacyOfEUThinkpieces-AWebsiteOfTheInternet.com, but it turned out that was already taken.
