    The Mod Squad is currently discussing options on how the process of moving to a Prequel Trilogy forum will unfold. Many different ideas have been tossed around. Before we go any further, we would like feedback on what the forum regulars think. We have tried to select a variety of poll options that reflect the various opinions of the mods participating in the discussions. Please select one of the options. Feel free to post your thoughts on the matter as well.

    Picked `Start the PT Forum now....'

    People have always said there's enought to talk about in each separate forum. I say this will help bring more topics still. People may see different opinions should such a merger happen, as some like TPM more than AOTC and the other way around. More friendly but strong debate couldn't hurt.

    Wait until the trilogy is finished. No point in having a forum for an incomplete trilogy. Besides, we've waited this long....

    I think we should have a forum for each movie. As in, we should create new forums for ANH ESB and ROTJ, while keeping the classic trilogy forum.

    We should then add a prequel trilogy forum. That should cover the bases without sacraficing the benefits of sorting topics by film when appropriate.

    I have also posted this over on the AOTC Fourm


    I have had this idea for a united PT fourm and SW Message Boards for awhile now.

    Right now: Keep the 3SA, 3NSA, AOTC, and TPM as they are.

    After May 19, 2005: Roll AOTC and TPM into the NEW PT Fourm. The 3SA and 3NSA will become one unified board that holds initial reactions/clarifications about Revenge of the Sith. This will become the New ROTS board.

    After November ROTS DVD Release: The New ROTS board wil remain standing until December 31, 2005 for DVD talk.

    After January 1, 2006: The New ROTS board and the PT board will now join into one, complete PT board. A New board is created for anticipation for the SW Saga Boxset. This board will run from January 2006 to it's release TBD 2007. On this board could be talk of changes to the SW Saga.*

    Final: One Complete Saga Fourm, One Complete PT Fourm, One Complete OT Fourm. The boxset board will joined with the Complete Saga board after its possible release.

    You will now have:
    1. Complete Six SW Movie Saga Fourm
    2. Complete PT Fourm
    3. Complete OT Fourm

    *The Saga Boxset is still up in the air. This is only if we have a boxset for the big 30th Celebration.

    Go-Mer, creating new OT forums isn't on the table. This place just cannot generate enough traffic and conversation for individual OT movies. In light of this, does one of the polled options look good to you?

    Thank you, JMZ.

    You see, I love these Jedi Council Boards. Each and every single one of them. To me, that idea seems a logistical way to create a new board to keep new talk going as well as combining the boards to simplify the Jedi Council Board List.

    I really wish the moderators would take my idea into consideration. I really do think that that could work out nicely. The new Saga boxset will generate traffic and keep the users talking about something new while allowing for discussion on old boards.

    I think the prequel boards should stay as they are until the release of Episode III and it's resulting furvor have come to pass.

    Then after things die down, roll all the prequels into one prequel forum.

    I think doing it now would be too confining for the Episode III release.

    Well - I don't think ROTS should be amalgamated until loong after it's release. I mean it's gonna be generating a LOT of traffic for quite a while and tpm and aotc threads would just get lost under it .

    Here's my idea - merge tpm and aotc soon.

    Then merge both ROTS boards in June .

    Then wait until next Xmas and see if it's time to merge them .

    Is there a voting option for that ^ ?

    Merge TPM and AOTC into a single forum in June. Merge ROTS with it around Thanksgiving of this year. Put TPM and AOTC in the inactive forum category.

    If possible, please salvage the chapter discussions on both here and AOTC. I will be wrapping them up in late April, with ROTS starting in December.

    I'd merge TPM & AOTC right now; leave ROTS alone for quite awhile-it's the last flick, and might turn out to be the best, so give it it's own unique forum.

    I think the second option is most what you're talking about, gez.

    I'm defending my idea for one reason like this:

    Moleman1138's chapter discussions are still going and from what I've heard, will complete both in the TPM fourm and AOTC fourm in few months.

    Creating a unified PT board might cause confusion of having two chapter discussions on one fourm.

    That's why, you should hold off on creating one PT board until after ROTS's release on May 19, 2005.

    Sorry but those threads are not sufficient reason to hold off merging the forums if the decision is made to...

    yep. no more of this "take it to the aotc forum" nonsense.

    Start the PT Forum after the ROTS DVD release and roll TPM/AOTC/ROTS into it gradually.

    That is my opinion.
