    Wow :D

    *tries to manage a warm welcome greeting*
    This sure does beat the excitement on going to AlphaCon

    Say, Hama is an IP address to much to ask for the skeptical few? (not that I am, but it'd be great to check...)

    Would the IP address tell you much? It's four numbers. The host address (above) is what convinced me.

    This is very interesting. I suppose GL would want to see just what we've been up to, especially since many of us play in his sandbox. ;) Considering how much of his universe has spawned such creativity (creativity begets creativity), I'm impressed that he has the time to look in and respond to us. Welcome, Mr. Lucas. Hope I can get back at 8 p.m. :D

    I am very skeptical as well. Why would TFN garner enough interest to bring Lucas here over any other board? Where would he find the time? Its not a disrespect thing but some proof is required - even Moses was taken aback when da Big G spoke to him, so we are as well.


    BTW: If you really are George Lucas, would it be all right if I used the Jedi Council scene in TPM for a fan made movie. I would give credit for using it (like people counln't figure that out on their own!) and not try yo make money off of it?

    Well, before the flurry of activity starts...

    As one of the many people out here involved in Star Wars fan films, Star Wars timelining, and all that good stuff, I think I'd be remiss if I didn't take this time to offer a heartfelt "thank you" to Mr. Lucas. Not everyone in "the business" really understands, appreciates, or I daresy trusts the fans. DC Comics has swept in and wiped out fan projects without so much as blinking and many sites and fans have come under attack by various companies and creators over things as simple as putting up a fan site.

    We don't usually take the time to laud how kind and supportive you have been to the fans, Mr. Lucas, but whether or not we often voice that appreciation, we feel and acknowledge it every time we type up a fan story, decipher a bit of timelining confusion, or step in front of a personal DV camera to tell our own tales of what might have been. To give the fans more products...that's business. To acknowledge the fans at all...that's respect. But to show support for those fans enjoying your work and inspired by your career...that takes class.

    Thank you, Mr. Lucas.

    Admins/mods can check IPs and host addresses and figure out where a person is posting from.

    Mr. Lucas, if it really is you, I just wanna say thank you for providing me with plenty of fun-filled childhood memories.

    Good post Nathan. I agree. *Thanks* GL for letting us do fan projects.

    Now, to find out if it really is him... Josh? Scott? DarthCleo? Chyren, even?

    Are the admins going to set up some sort of way for us to submit questions to Mr. Lucas, or is it going to be a feeding frenzy when he comes back tonight?

    This WILL be a day long remembered.

    Mr Lucas, chances are, you wont read this, but welcome all the same. I hope you enjoy yourself - Don't be a stranger! :)

    I think I speak for us all, when I say "We are honoured by your presence!"

    Heh heh... Remember last April Fools Day?


    I wonder if Fanfic will get any visits...? That would be interesting, just as long as none of my crappy fiction surfaces. o_O

    I think this is the fastest growing thread *ever*. :D

    In fact, if this keeps up, I might be a J.E.D.I. by the end of the day!

    You know what irony is? Tomorrow for Film Studies, I *HAVE TO* watch The Phantom Menace!!! I'm studying about Production, Distribution, and Exhibition of mainstream Hollywood film.

    I wonder what they are going to think when I tell them that I was (possibly) engaging in a Q&A session with George Lucas - They would probably think I am nuts, or something! :)

    SHIBBY!
