    This thread replaces the longtime SOS Luke Skywalker thread that has been a lit mainstay for years.

    Hopefully Luke still won't be the only Jedi in 30 years later.

    I'll feel pretty depressed if we discover that Luke actually failed to rebuild anything in 30 years... It's already bad enough that the New Republic is probably bound to fail.

    What happened to the original thread anyway?

    Anyway, I'm avoiding spoilers mostly, but even just based on the trailers, it sure doesn't seem like there will be any lightsaber crowds like during the prequel.

    Hope I don't get banned, I meant my comment in the sense that I hope a lot of things will have happened in the time jump.

    EDIT: Just saw the old thread. Ah. Ok, back to lurking and hoping. Still not that interested in nuEU stuff though.

    Jedi Ben invoked his privileges as its creator to declare it dead because of all the handwringing over the author of the best Luke story in recent memory saying that he'd always been a Han fan.

    Lit won't be the same without the SOS thread. It was iconic. The first version of SOS was started by a friend if mine more than ten years ago.

    It's to bad. I mean that thread has been around a long time.

    I honestly don't fault Ben at all.

    Yes, I feel really bad right now. I will truly miss it. It was important to me. I fought so hard to keep it in lit and from being locked a number of years ago, and now it's gone. And it's disappointing that it was Jedi Ben, one of the posters who has been a part of the sos thread from the beginning, that caused it to be terminated. I probably won't be posting in lit anymore. In fact, I'm thinking about not posting on the spoiler boards as well. Maybe it's time for me to leave the discussion boards completely.

    The negativity was getting tiring.

    The original thread was first created many years ago. It's contents covered what fans want out of Luke stories , to stave off any poor characterizations. This new thread functions the same way, except we also care how Luke is being handled in the ST

    Yes it surely is, FS. I sincerely hope it will relent soon though its unlikely.

    It's no negativity. It is simply a desire to fulfill the original purpose of the thread. The purpose is to save Luke from poor legacy and characterization.

    Then come up with positive scenarios from the rumors. We have imagination. Use it!

    I did on the Hamil thread. I agreed that Luke failing to create a successful order for 30 years, while disappointing, could be done right, if Luke has the screen time to overcome it. But he does not seem to.

    Frankly, the SOS thread was in completely irrational the-sky-is-falling mode for as long I've been on the forums. Remember when everyone was panicking about the first pictures of Kylo Ren because he was supposed to be Luke turned into an evil cyborg?

    It did not used to be that negative. But we did hit a new low with all the negative press on Hamil's role in vII. Also the abolishing of the eu was controversial. I will make a personal effort not to get to negative on here .

    Ah. The days of Evil cyborg Luke. I don't miss those.
