Alright, we all know what prompted this... [ul]According to Lucas Licensing Editor Sue Rostoni, "Canon refers to an authoritative list of books that the Lucas Licensing editors consider an authentic part of the official Star Wars history. Our goal is to present a continuous and unified history of the Star Wars galaxy, insofar as that history does not conflict with, or undermine the meaning of Mr. Lucas's Star Wars saga of films and screenplays." Things that Lucas Licensing does not consider official parts of the continuous Star Wars history show an Infinities logo or are contained in Star Wars Tales. Everything else is considered canon.[/ul] Now, this question goes to our fearless Admins of our now incorrectly named "Expanded Universe" forums - Darth Ludicrous and the Gatherer and of course anyone else that wants to chime in. The fact of the matter is that currently, Theforce.net is now in error. The Expanded Universe has essentially ceased to exist - it is an outdated, meaningless and incorrect classification not used anymore by Lucasfilm. As the premier Star Wars fan site, I don't see how TF.N can in good faith continue to propogate this error through its forum structure. They should be encouraging the education of Star Wars fans through the use of proper information. However, I do see a valid reason to have separate movie forums - these are not in error. What is in error are the "Expanded Universe" forums - games, games: ccg, games: rpg, literature, community and collecting are no longer "Expanded Universe" - they should be "Canon" forums. I suppose the most correct thing to do is have a Canon umbrella forum which branch out from there. I also note that this issue could also be a can of worms best left unopened. I figure there's about a snowflake's chance in hell to mobilize the TF.N to completely overhaul it's forum structure, especially since LFL's policy has been rather dynamic in the past year. But, I did think it was important to begin raising the issue of TF.N's structure. So, will we be stuck with the Expanded Universe forums even though there is no such thing as Expanded Universe products? Technically, aren't we all off-topic by talking about Canon items in an Expanded Universe forum? Is it acceptable to bring up the radio dramatization in the movie forums, yet get blocked because you brought up Heir to the Empire? I don't necessarily know the right answer to any of that, but I'm not the one who needs to.
