    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.

    "so look for the newest Mod(s) to be really peppy go-get-?em kind of guys (or gals). "

    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.

    Embarrased to say that this is the first update I've read. [face_blush] I'm very impressed with all of your hard work and appreciate being able to see what you are working on with the forums.

    Thanks! :D

    "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.
