    Technically, I've known about this site for years, having spent a lot of time scraping through the fanfic archives. That was a long time ago, and now I'm older and wiser.

    I wouldn't quite describe my feelings about the new Star Wars films as 'excitement' so much as an incredibly strong sense of anticipation. I won't deny that the announcement rekindled my old memories and my old love of Star Wars, which became less intense over the years.

    I'm currently reading the New Jedi Order novels for the first time, and I've just finished Traitor. Let's just say that my mind was officially blown.

    I'm ready to throw myself back into the Star Wars universe. Bring it on!

    Whoa, can someone tell me what trophies are? Or point me somewhere that describes the board's special features?

    I see. Thanks for your help!

    I've been on forums where your post count and status are linked but never through some sort of 'trophy' mechanism. It's all new for me.

    themetresgained: Failte Nua Duine. Glad SS got you squared up on the trophy system. It is all a bit mad when you first register. You should definitely check out our book discussions while looking into everything else going on about the forums. Hope you stick around and get involved. Should you require any further assistance or have more questions, TAG one of us, message us, or use this thread as your tech support area.

    Wow, you can tag people in forums now. This is all so hi-tech I feel like a bit of a has-been.

    Man, being a newbie on a board is such a weird experience. I'm used to being one of the back-in-my-day old-timers over on the KMC Star Wars forums.

    Welcome themetresgained! :)

    I see that your question about trophies got answered already. Did you know that the titles are based on your trophie-count as well?

    If all the new features irritates you, don't worry, you'll get used to it fast, and while discovering everything, don't hesitate to ask us (no matter how many questions you have). We are here to help you. :)

    Enjoy your stay! :)


    Welcome Hawk! *waves* :)
