    I'm not entirely sure how much traffic this community gets, but I'm happy to add a little more regardless. I was sitting around on my laptop and decided to find some likeminded people to talk to, so I hope I find that here.

    I guess to find likeminded people you should tell a little about yourself. What is your favorite movie? Do you read the SW novels or comics? Do you play the video games. Do you do Cosplay, write fanfiction, RPG, or do fan art?

    Welcome IAmYourGrandma! :)

    This site is the biggest one about SW. Every other big site closed during the last years. But even this site got slower and we love to see more people joining - and it's getting faster again because of the new movies ahead. :D

    Nevertheless, don't miss checking out your local FanForce. There you can meet like minded people from your area at the boards and in RL. Much fun! :)

    Enjoy your stay! :)

    Well sure, I couldn't give you an exact favorite, but I'd say a few of them would be the LotR Trilogy, the original and prequel SW trilogies, Van Helsing (2004) and X-Men Origins Wolverine, as well as it's recent sequel. I've read the novels, and I don't read Mangas or graphic novels because I feel like I'd be wasting my money on something that takes me a half an hour to read through. I've played all of them and own the majority of them, aside from the newest Force Unleashed. I don't cosplay because it's expensive and I live in the middle of nowhere, so it would be pretty pointless. I used to write Fan-Fictions, but unrelated to SW. I've since lost all of my writing motivation and my inspiration goes elsewhere. If you mean online text-based Roleplaying, again I used to for years but for another fandom. I don't anymore. And I suck at drawing.

    That's good to know, I'm sorry that they've all been closing though. I suppose it happens to them all at one point or another.

    It sounds great, thanks so much for the warm welcome. :)

    Yep, it's sad, but I guess that's 'digital life'. Let us hope that this one stays for some more years - until all SW movies have been done, watched, re-watched and probably revised. *thinks about the many versions of the original three movies* ;) :p

    Btw, if you like to quote more than one person, just hit reply of those posts you need. They will all be added to one post. Then you can add your text. This way you avoid double posts, which are frowned uppon regularly. And since we are using a new board system, you have also the option of 'tagging' a member (like Skiara). This way, you inform the user (s/he gets a notice of being tagged) without quoting the whole post, which is often not necessary - especially if the post in question is on the same page as your new one. :)

    Yep, seems about right. I hope they don't remake them all however, I'm scared that they'll do a really bad job.

    Ah, I apologize for that, it was pretty late so I didn't bother to try. Normally I do if there's more than two to reply to, so I'll keep that in mind. :3

    That's perfectly fine. :)

    Yeah, I'm not sure, what I shall think about 'work overs' as well. Not to mention remakes. I think that wouldn't work with SW...
