    Hello FanForcers.

    Once upon a time there was a group of people who decided that the world was too small and decided to take fragile wooden caravelles to discover new worlds. They were conquerors, embassators and also pionneers.
    These were the Portuguese explorers, 500 years ago.

    Now the Portuguese Fan Force wishes to travel the world, but not in caravelles...
    We wish to explore, but not to conquer...
    We are travelling the Fan Force world to meet the worldwide Fan Forces and let ourselves be known.
    But also with a message of friendship and the famous phrase: STAR WARS LIVES FOREVER!

    Hello, my user name means Space tourist. My name is Joana but I?m also known as Stonezinha (stone for friends).
    I?ve became a real SW fan when I found the Expanded Universe. I love the clone wars stories. My favourite movies are the ROTS and ROTJ. I also like to write and I recently publish my first SW story.

    Hello, my name is Vanessa and I've been a Star Wars fan since 2001. I've been part of the Fan Force Portugal since (almost) four years ago.

    I've written a few SW fanfics in the past, but actually I don't write anything (about Star Wars) since 2005. Shame on me, I know! :p

    May the Force Be With You

    Hi, my name is Gonçalo and I am the Webmaster of the Fan Force Portugal Web Site
    I knew Star Wars when I was a little padawan :p and when I saw SW ROTJ I fell in love immediately with SW.

    Since then i've been colecting several stuff like comics,statues,movies and games.

    May the Force Be With You

    Hello there.
    My name is Diogo, or James in English (like Bond, Hendrix, Hetfield, Kirk, Dean and a few Kings:p), and I'm 18 years old.
    I began posting in TheForce.net boards around October 2005, especially in FFPt, but I love Star Wars since I was a little kid, since my father showed me the OT for the first time, when I was 4 or something. My favourite SW movie is RotS, followed very closely by ESB.
    I only truly discovered the EU in the end of 2004, I think. I have a ever-growing collection of games (e.g. The Best of PC), books (e.g. Shadows of the Empire), comics (e.g. Dark Empire) and other things SW-related (e.g. 200cm Darth Vader poster). I like to read and always learn more about EU, and my favourite piece about this is probably the videogame KotOR.
    As you can see, I'm from Portugal. Although I don't think this is the best place to live (not bad though), it's without a doubt a nice place to visit, so you're all welcome here:D
    See you around the boards, take care!!

    I'm not from Turkey or Portugal, but I just wanted to say hello.

    Greetings from Turkey!

    I'm Cansu Korkmaz. I'm 16, and I'm a star wars fan since ... well i dont count it, lets say too many years :) I also have a collection about Star Wars. You know, books, comics, magazines, figures, busts, statues, posters or pictures...

    I can say, to be a SW fan in Turkey is very hard. You can't find what you want, figures or collectional things. Or when you have an activity about Star Wars, the people look you like they looking a crazy person. Or asking, "Are you a Harry Potter fan, or something?" "Honey, you're so sweet, let me look at your costume, is this the new mickey mouse costume? So sweet!"

    Well, that's funny, but that is the truth. To be a Star Wars fan in Turkey, hard and funny. Point of view ;)

    Of course, We've our website about Star Wars. www.yildizsavaslari.com (Yildiz Savaslari means Star Wars, in Turkish) We're the "Turkey's Most Popular Star Wars Fan Community" :)And I'm the second Administrator of YildizSavaslari.Com. Take a look at it, will you? :)

    Hey guys! Welcome to the Turkish board :)

    I'm Ates (which means Fire in English), I'm 24 and I got deeply involved with Star Wars in 2001.

    I'm the co-founder of the Turkish fan community www.yildizsavaslari.com. As Darth Dogg stated, we got a large number of fans in this country but we also have very scarce resources of products and Lucasfilm attention. But let us not depress you with local problems :)

    Great to have you guys here :D hope to see all of you in person, one day.

    Well, it's like 36-38C but we have wind today :) Yesterday I thought I would not be able to breath. Just can't imagine if we trooped with this weather condition.

    Don't know if CEII will ever take place but I am planning to attend the Jedi-Con in Germany.

    We're like "fried chickens"!! :) How about you [face_thinking] Thanks for asking, by the way.

    CEII hmm... CE very boored me from pictures of course :) 'Cause nothing diffrent happened, a few celebrities came, talk, a few signed picture and collectional things showed. Now, we're need more fan activities and diffrent never happened things!

    Ah yeah...

    But you see Celebrations are usually parties.
    I was somehow disappointed to see that "shopping spree" rather than the old community gathering.
    It was great to meet some other FanForcers though.

    Only next time we must prepare our gathering with much more care!

    Hello again.

    Your website looks really cool, congratulations. Unfortunately I don't understand a thing, but I can see that you guys talked about KotF and The Force Unleashed and just that is a good thing. And what is that about the Nintendo Wii??

    The website is http://www.yildizsavaslari.com , thats where the Turkish fans meet.

    The gaming news are about the release date of KOTF (which always changes - BTW I tried it at Tim's home, it was cool, worth to wait), the E3 trailer of Force Unleashed and a possible lightsaber game for Nintendo Wii.
