    Oh geez Bane, I think you need to fire your writers :p

    I guess this is what happens when you spend so much time repressing jokes in the Senate?

    i shall recite the dispicable "Satanic Verse" if you don't do what he says, and if that doesn't scare you the historical subtext sure will!

    I have nothing to ask. :_| Very informative, Gandolf.

    As far as setting up a new movie/EU forum, I have to agree with Gandolf and Vertical. It would be a bad idea. The infrastructure is already in place to discuss the movies and/or to discuss the EU. Due to the nature of the Star Wars Saga, there will be some overlap of non-movie items in the movie forums and of movie-items in the non-movie forums.

    Why this overlap has bothered anyone to the extent it does is beyond me. It's easy really...
    1. movie discussions - movie forums
    2. EU discussions - EU forums
    Therefore...
    3. EU-related movie discussions are still movie discussions and belong in the movie forums.
    4. movie-related EU discussions are still EU discussions and belong in the EU forums.

    That's always seemed rather elementary to me.

    I don't think there needs to be an entirely new forum to cover the 0.1% of threads which are multi-universal in nature covering both EU and movies equally.

    The AOTC board is a mess and IS a priority I agree but the episode 3 spoilers board is also insane.

    I can't PM a mod about every other thread in there and it seems that it is rarely moderated?Am I the only one that cares about this issue?Coz if I am,I need to shut up.

    But it seems very off topic and disorganized in there.

    We're here to moderate. Let's moderate. If we're having problems staying on top of things, let's bring aboard new mods, not make the AOTC forum a constrictive discussion forum.

    Sounds good to me! I've noticed that sometimes late at night (2-4 AM EST), redundant topics start popping up, and it usually takes a while for them to be locked. Thankfully, when I wake up the next morning, someone has taken care of them.

    Keep up the great work.

    "We're here to moderate. Let's moderate. If we're having problems staying on top of things, let's bring aboard new mods, not make the AOTC forum a constrictive discussion forum."

    Does anyone else think this should have been followed by a montage, set to some 80s music, of all the mods locking threads and banning some people. That would have been cool.

    Amazing.
