    Geez it's my first visit here since a year and a bit ago and I see the place hasn't changed much in terms of the overwhelming silence.

    Isn't it funny that we have a new SW TV show AND a new movie coming out yet this forum is still as quiet as ever.

    sigh. :(

    I may not return for another year and bit at this rate.

    To be honest, I was originally from South Australia so back in the day posted a fair bit there... but those were the days where posts were a daily occurrence, yet it unfortunately appears that such frequent discussion has since greatly dropped :(

    I remember those earlier days well. SA and NSW are a bit more active at the moment… and there has been some of a turn around now with the new films so things have picked up a bit. No doubt that there will be quite a few keen to return and see the new films together again. :)

    Ahhh, there seems to be a glimmer of activity in the old VicFF girl. :)

    Back in the PT days the VICFF boards were rife with all these students posting threads on everything except SW. It was certainly hectic for a number of years, but then they all left and there was nothing but silence ... and so it has remained.

    Personally I think with social media being so prevalent now, these forums don't hold anywhere near as much appeal as they did a decade back, and I doubt the new films will change that mindset. Unfortunately Darth Facebook has a lot to answer for.

    In any event, it's certainly nice not having to speak to myself for a change :)

    Good to see you again Dags. :)

    I remember those days well and quite a few antics too. You are right about social media and Darth FB and it is unfortunate that it has become like that. Oh well, we will be getting a SW film a year, starting next year so there be a change and anything is possible.

    For the meantime, always welcome to hang out with the rest of us :)

    Geez it's all closing down isn't it? I just had a sniff around the place and most sites were lucky to have any posts from 2015!

    In case you're wondering, I visit the forums a lot, just not here. As I edit the Star Walking newsletter (The Force), I'm more active in the film boards where I do most of my research. Wait! What's The Force? Well I'm glad you asked...

    So considering most of the topics in VicFF are closed, I figured by posting this little message The Dag House will stay open a little longer. :)

    Yeah it's a bit sad, we've got the largest fandom in the country and can't seem to muster a few posts a week?

    Got to be a way to get it kicked up a notch somehow?
