    Im the new RSA for St.Louis, And I just want to assure everyone the guard has change. The "Tyrants" that everybody is use to around these boards are long gone. I can promise you fair and unbiased leadership. You WONT be band for the silliness like in the past. We want everybody to feel that can post here and feel good about it. LMK If there is anything I can do.

    Edit
    I just want everybody to know that my use of the word "Tyrants" is a term that was used by another FF member on why they dont like using TFN boards. I would delete the term ,but it is referd to in this thread.

    I'm completely new to these boards, but showing signs of life like this seems to be a good first step.

    Hey, Echo. Former jedi council member here. Not sure who you are refering to as tyrants. All past leaders (and council members) are in good standings with a good jig of us/eachother. Most now use Facebook since its easier to use and we can talk with members of multiple groups, 501, rebel legion, jedi assembly, as well as dragoncon folks, etc. We can also talk off topic and not get flammed and use any language we choose. I see this board going the way of many of the other boards, which is too bad, many great friends were made here, but face it, its over.

    Yeah. I still talk to lots of the people that I met here. We're all still around! But it's just too hard to keep things going on here. I still look to see if anything is going on though.

    You realize I got you to post,HA HA. When I say Tyrant's ,I am using a term that was described to me from another user.
    Well i am sorry you two feel that way, I have been using our boards for years and still love it. Hope you change your mind.

    Welcome Vykk. :)

    Hi echo(I have a friend in RL named Echo :p ). Former Council Member/CR here. While there have been times that we had differences in opinion and maybe even heated discussions, I don't think that anyone here(past or present) could be described as a tyrant or would ban people on a whim.

    Thats good to hear, I am over lots of chapters now , and many users have said the same thing to me when asked why they went to another forum. Im glad you dint have to deal with anything like that.

    And where are these facebook groups? I've been through plenty of Facebook Star Wars groups and have never seen one that organizes anything. That's the whole reason I came to this board, to find local Star Wars fans like myself.

    Vykk-Draygo we are not on a formal group page on facebook, we all just friended each other. You are both right, these forums are a great way to meet new people who had/have the same interest. Sadly I think the interest in all that is Star Wars has run its course and new members are/were few and far between for the past year or more. The regulars here moved onto other interests. If you all can get this forum going again more power to you. Personally I would love to come back and start posting again.

    The only way your forums are going to get active again is if people like you, people who would love to start posting again actually start posting again.

    Right now this forum and this Fan Force chapter pretty much looks dead for all intents and purposes to people comming here looking for the St. Louis Fan Force.

    I know you have no reason to listen to an outsider like me, but as the President of one of the more active North East Fan Force chapters, I know from experience that having a decent ammount of activity on your boards will help attract members.

    You say you all communicate over Facebook, is there a link to any of your Facebook profiles? If that's how you interact tthen there should be some way for potential new members to get in touch with you.

    It doesn't have to be. Fatalistic attitudes are not the answer to keeping this an active club. Make an effort, find things to do, things to talk about, other non-Star Wars interests that you all share. It's only over if you let it be over.

    I had given up checking the boards because there was no activity for so long... Now that people are posting again, I'll check more often and maybe post (no promises - I, too, am more of a lurker). Amy will have to yell at me if I'm not being social enough again. :)
