    Who would have thought that in the time between the release of the final Attack of the Clone trailer, and ten days before the release of the film, so many new members would join our ranks here in the spoiler free forum? The number of newcomers to our board has been exciting and refreshing, and I am sure that we are all looking forward to meeting even more Star Wars fans who desire to remain spoiler-free, just like us. :D

    The thought process behind the original thread was a simple one. I have always told members that I felt that this forum was the most tight knit community on the entire JC boards. Keeping with the theme of community, I feel as though it will be easier to keep ourselves a community by allowing any new members who wish to take advantage of the oppertunity, to sign in, and introduce themselves to the rest of the group. Hopefully with this new, improved thread, with less replies, no new member will feel too intimidated to jump right into things! :)

    So any new members that plan on making the NS board their home, feel free to use this thread to introduce yourself to us. Just tell us a little about yourself, and I'm sure that you'll be greeted with several enthusiastic "hellos" from your fellow forum members, your new non-spoiler family. :)

    Perhaps you are a spoiled member who wishes to become spoiler-free for Episode III? Don't be shy! We'd love to hear from you as well. The same rules apply. Just tell us a little about yourself, and you'll be all set as a non-spoiler member! :)

    I encourage you all to check out the original Welcome Thread! to get familiar with your fellow forum members who have previously introduced themselves to the group.



    As follows are the rules, regulations, and just general tips about the forum, and posting in general from a very generous member named Silmarillion. Send her a PM to thank her if you have a chance!



    The NEW STAR WARS: Episode II, Attack of the Clones Ultimate Reference Thread is here! This is a very long thread, but it is invaluable knowledge for new and old posters alike! I encourage everyone to read it in its entirety! To help you get through, Padme will be appearing at certain intervals, so keep reading!

  3. Congratulations on making it this far! -- Here's Padme in her Blue Tatooine Outfit.

    *** NEW MEMBER QUESTIONS ***


    QUESTION #1: As a new member, what should I do first?

    Excellent question! The first thing you should do is: wait! That?s right, it?s a little anti-climactic, sure, but it?s well-

    Aww, I'll kinda miss the ol' thread.

    *Sniff*

    But, alas! Life goes on. :) Welcome, folks! We're glad you're here, and listen to what Windy said. We are a close group in here. No where else on the boards will you find a family like ours.

    *sigh*

    The leagacy of my first post....locked :(

    But really, it's a good idea to introduce yourself here. It might seem like a big deal, but it's really not and I'm sure you'll find everyone to be extremely nice! :)

    I've already been slightly spoiled for Ep. 3. I was so mad. Stay away from some of the reports from the Celebration. But beyond that, I will not read anything else until Ep. 3 is out(which is going to be incredibly hard for me).

    Anyway, I've only be here for a little while but thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome! :)

    Hi. I'm Anne. I feel kind of stupid registering 9 days before AOTC opens, but, hey, don't judge me just on that. :) I've loved Star Wars for as long as I can remember, and I'm dying to see AOTC. I'm very glad to have found this spoiler-free community since the internet can hold spoilers at every turn. Anyway, I'm glad to be here, and I hope to get to know you all very soon. I already know cbjedi from Mugglenet (Hi cbjedi!), so that makes me feel a little less lost. Anyway, hi. :)

    "Sil is a girl. And a pretty one at that. Don't you ever go into the PSA forum Windy??"

    A girl who enjoys looking at pictures of Padme. :eek:

    Seriously, who could blame me for making that assumption....


    Sorry Sil. [face_blush]



    Anyway, welcome to the fourm Anne! I am glad that this thread is being used so soon after its opening! I hope that you enjoy yourself and stick around long after the release of Episode III. :)





    :cool: Mace Windy,

    Hey Anne! Glad to meet you. I seriously just can't wait a second longer until AotC either. I've been slacking off in school juse because I can't concentrate on anything but Star Wars any more.

    And what do you do at Mugglenet? I love that site; I go there all the time.

    Thanks for the welcome, Adi_Gallia_9! I'm a moderator on Mugglenet's forums. I've been working with the staff there for almost a year now. :)

    Yeah, school has gone down the tubes for me too. I spent all of my 6th hour today drawing a countdown on my teacher's board with a perfect Star Wars logo. I'm not much of an artist, so it didn't come out as well as I would have liked. But I'm still proud of it. :)

    Welcome Anne! Glad to have you.



    Man Mace why did you have to kill the old thread when you did. Right after I post my 1000th post there. I was saving it for that thread. You will pay for this outrage. ;)

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Jake. I've been lurking around for about a month in here, and I figured I'd introduce myself. I'm not completely spoiler free, (I didn't realize how evil spoilers were until too late) but I don't want to be any more spoiled than I already am, so I read in here mostly. I've already bought my tickets for the 12:01 showing here in Oklahoma City, and I'm crazy with anticipation for AOTC. :D

    TTFN,
    Jake

    Oh, how friendly! =D

    I'm Matt, I'm at school down at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA until Thursday, and then I'm back home in Cincinnati until next term.

    Golly...I've loved Star Wars since I was a wee 'un, and I think AotC is gonna be rockin' it like none other! I'm spoiler-free because that's the way to be as far as I'm concerned (I grew up pretty much having the OT memorized before I could even spell "Memorize" so I really love not knowing what's happening in the new movies. E1 was like a dream come true in that regard).

    So, ummm...I think I'll be staying.

    :)

    No, no. The Padme pics are there because that's what about 50% of PSA is about. :p

    Welcome Jake, and the other new members!
    Props to Windy for making a fresh welcome thread. I'm sure the newbies appreciate not having to read through all 11 pages or so of the original thread (I should know, I did it all in one go).
    He's right you know, even though I don't post very often, I really feel like a part of a community just by reading these forums.

    So welcome to all, enjoy your stay, and AOTC will be here before you know it!

    I guess I'm technically a newbie here in that no-one really knows me. I've been hanging around the place for near on 3 years and haven't dabbled too much in the Prequel propaganda. I've just watched others dabble in it.

    I am looking forward to next Tuesday night and the little fact that I'll get to see a few hours before the Americans.

    :)

    I'm with Wedge, :p to the Americans. :D

    In all seriousness, welcome to all the newbies, I only started posting here myself a little while ago after venturing outside of my local FF board in search of more interesting discussion. (Psst, Wedge, don't tell the guys in Aus Gen I said that. ;) )

    Aww, does this mean that Niktos, Gay-Len and I can't pretend to be newbies anymore? Where's the fun in that?

    Awww, I hear ya Queenie. Maybe Steve and cbjedi will let us play anyways. ;)

    Welcome all newbies! Its so great to see so many other people staying spoiler free. It's getting very tough these days. Temptation is everywhere, and we are sooooo close to the opening of AOTC. Lets all cross our fingers that there isn't another spoiler ambush like with the TPM soundtrack in '99. Oh, and be sure to check ou the AOTC Defence Force. Don't let the name fool ya, we mostly chat about AOTC, Spielberg (I'll never get it right, Steve ;) ), and the construction of clones for our own (completely innocent, I swear!) services. The link is in my signature.

    I hope to see you guys around the JC. Stay strong and spoiler free! :D

    What's up everyone. Although I just registered (9 days before AOTC), I'm just chillin'. Now I find myself just counting down the days until May 16. I can't wait!
