    I think the idea is there won't be basher/gusher threads

    You just mean no Sancts and no DFs? To my knowledge, no forum allows those anyway accept TPM Forum.

    The Misc forum has DF's and Fan Clubs, but as far as I know they won't be allowed in the Saga Forum. I think you're right about the basher sanctuary only being allowed in the TPM forum. It should remain that way. I'm only guessing here. DA, will be able to speak to this more than I can.

    Not offically, no...but it seems that in all likelihood, he'll be taking charge of the Saga forum.

    Yes, and I will probably go in to mod more actively in the misc.

    Bah! Its a waste of server space I tell you. You are already posting in the board that is meant for discussing the entire Saga. Its just divided up thats all.

    Can you discuss EU in this new forum? After all, it is the SAGA!

    The EU will be just as in any other movie forum. Dont forget, its SAGA as in cross Trilogy discussion. Movies.

    It can be presented as an option, but not as an absolute.

    I was looking forward to the new forum just by the name. But after reading this i'm having second doubts that a forum based on the entire saga is really the answer we want.

    Axl.

    [color=663300]When are we getting the "saga" forum? If it's already out there, I can't seem to find it. [/color]

    Wouldn't the misc forum suffice? ?[face_plain]

    Ah well. Either way it's good.

    At this point, the current Miscellaneous board is going to be retitled "Star Wars Community" and all discussion relating to the Star Wars Saga as a whole will be moved a new board called The Saga Forum, which will be situated in the Movies category.

    Excellent. That is just the idea I was pushing for when I was last involved in the discussion. I think having the two forums is good. I like the idea of a SW Community forum. A place where people can go to have simple Star Wars themed fun, without complaints of it driving down other, more serious threads.

    Unfortunately, serious Saga discussion is drowned out by game threads, and other Misc threads.

    To encourage Saga discussion, a whole new forum really is needed.

    To elaborate a touch for those who are confused about the need for this forum whilst Misc. still exists...

    Whilst the Misc. Forum is a great melting pot for many of the threads people would like to make but don't really "fit" elsewhere, it tends to be - without any offence intended with regard to Misc. - to be full of rather low-brow discussions.

    Sure, we might like to ponder about "Who would win, Mace Windu vs. Luke Skywalker in the EU?" or the classic "Who was teh most powerfulz Jedi EVAR?"

    But for many patrons of the forums, these topics don't sufficiently engage their "Arts Student potential" for philosophical discussion and more wide-ranging exploration of the Star Wars Mythos.

    This is what the "Saga Forum" tries to address. The threads will hopefully be kept to a more esoteric level where passionate, researched or simply really interested posters can explore some of the nuance and complexity that ranges OVER the entire 5 (And soon to be 6) films in George Lucas' epic vision.


    And for all those who seem to be getting a bit excited, I can tell you: with good reason.
    Every day this forum is shaping up to be better and better: and with the Mod to beat all Mod's DarthAttorney's pawprints all over it, it's sure to be a winner. ;)

    I don't know if idea of associating a SW Community board with the New Users board has gone anywhere, but might it be a good idea to have an FAQ thread or an index? It seems like every other day somebody creates a thread asking about Episodes 7-9, and most of the time I can't find the official thread so I can point people to it.

    Just a thought. :)

    EDIT: Thanks for the header link, whoever did it. :)

    Can we have a "transition thread" in Misc. to help those who haven't been to Comms. get ready for the coming changes?

    The "Star Wars Saga" forum is a completely new forum, and SW Misc will encounter few changes.
