    At this point I'm optimistic about the upcoming films, of course if any spoilers point to the Gungan Menace having an active role then I reserve the right to NUke Disney World.:p

    I don't think I was ever a Star Wars character for Halloween. That said, I have a costume party to attend this Saturday and I have yet to get a costume. Perhaps in honor of the big news, now is the time?

    No kidding. Look at all the posts! And this isn't even close to what we had back in the day, but it's still craaaaazy. How does anybody keep up with it all?

    It is kinda surreal to see the JCCers outside of the JCC. I was half convinced you guys didn't even like star wars. :p

    Now is as good a time as any to be a SW character. It is certainly a relevant discussion starter.

    Jay, if you acknowledge in advance that every third post will be newbie posting hysteria, it automatically eliminates the need to read 1/3 of the mass.

    It's not to hard to get through most the post, you just have to look for key words. A lot of us post the same things, if you can find those key words you can wade through most the post pretty fast.

    Good point. Unlike JCC or Lit or anything else, I probably don't need to keep track of everything. I just need to make peace with that idea.

    Yeah, you honestly will maintain your mental health by not directly engaging in discussions such as "ZOMG! I think Anakin's lightsaber blade can change colors in Episode 3". [face_hypnotized]

    Spoilers Allowed has always been a fun time if you simply glean what you personally want out of it. The rest is merely the definition of "miasma".

    There are genuinely intelligent points made and details revealed. However, you can learn quite about about the source/quality simply by eyeing up "Member Since: Today". :p

    I started in The Cantina, which turned into the Jedi Knights Club, which turned into this.

    I posted sporadically in the 00-03 versions, but then I followed old MeBeJedi off on an idealistic crusade against Vortex, turned to the Dark Side, and got a new name. Somehow, I made it back by the start of Ep 3's GIL.
