    Hey all,

    Since KOP is no longer a recognized Fan Force, and with Philly having the 5th largest population in the country, and a very vivrant and large Star Wars population, I feel that Philly and its four suburban Pennsylvanian counties (Bucks, Montgomery, Chester & Delaware), deserves a Fan Force that represents everyone. My main objective is to form a Fan Force that wants to have fun, believes in the mission of Fan Forcedom, and is indiscriminate towards all members of the area.

    I have been thinking about this a lot since what has occurred almost a month ago. Philly deserves a Fan Force. There is no denying that. And I want to know how you feel. By you, I mean the members of the JC at large.

    I want to start a Fan Force for Philadelphia and the 'burbs, and I want to know how you, the Star Wars fans of the JC, feel about this.

    Fan Force is one of the greatest things that this site offers. It allows us a chance to meet fans of movies that we love greatly in person, and become close with them and form lasting bonds. I have learned this with my experiences with the New Jersey, New York and Los Angeles Fan Forces. We can do the same for Philadelphia, I'm sure of it. ;)

    Leave your two cents, and we can start the process towards getting Philly a Fan Force. :)

    One statement and one question:

    Philly Outer Rim LEFT FanForce..we voted on it and left. That's why we are not 'recognized' as a chapter.

    Feel free to give it a go. I tried in the past, with very little success.

    Re: What happened a month ago

    The whole Phillip Wise issue and everything that caused POR to leave TFN.

    Ah forget it. See, this is what you get when you write messages when you're half asleep/buzzed.

    Just so you know Herb, most posters in this particular forum are already members of Philly Outer Rim. I don't really see why they'd be interested in starting a FanForce chapter when they already voted to leave....

    Rob, I'd be happy to explain the Phil Wise 'issue' at another time. That particular issue was only the icing on the cake that caused us to leave. We had already made the decision a few months before that happened b/c of other things going on with FanForce.

    Well, I've never bothered with the fan force, for several reasons. Mostly time and distance and three kids, and the age gap. I"m no longer in my 20's shall we say. :p Though that doesn't mean that I would totally dismiss getting to know other Star Wars fans. It seems kind of lonely out here in the western suburbs. Mention you like Star Wars and you get strange looks. ;) I guess I'd want to know more about it.

    Sounds like a cool idea. I live in Bucks when I'm not at school in Lehigh. What was so bad that KOP voted itself out of Fan Force?

    I've seen that new Wampa... I made it part of my collection. He's a lovable furball.

A loose definition of trolling is someone who only posts to create drama, and derail the original intention of the thread, or simply posts to harass other members.

    I can't help but think that you're talking about me, Mara. I apologize, I was just curious as to what happened, I would definately consider joining if a Fan Force were created.

    No actually it wasn't directed at anyone in particular, and should serve as a general warning for anyone considering trolling this forum.

    All you need to start a fanforce chapter is this area is three people who are willing. You will need to have three meetings, and elect a Chapter Representative in order to become "Official." Please direct any questions you may have on how to become official to strawbary, she is your Regional Support Administrator (RSA).

    No it's not you, it's others in this thread who were posting off topic posts, derailing the thread. You were fine. :)


    And Yardley eh? Did you go to Pennsbury?

    Even though I am no longer in the area, I would love to see a fan force chapter in Philly.

    If you guys can do it, drop me a line and maybe the Philly fan force and the Washington DC fan force can do something together in the future. :D

    Edit: I sent you a PM Jenni. I suggest that if anyone has a problem abiding by my request above, that they no longer post in this thread.
