    C'mon, where are all the old school fans?
    "Jediphiles"! I remember the old fan club referred to fans as that and saw it in print a long time ago, in a groovy galaxy far far way...
    "starwarriors" is just fine too.

    Our fandom is so spectacular we don't use slang, but the entire damn title.

    I was thinking and cameup with 2 names one for the goodguys in star wars and one of the badguys,


    Force-ie-nights -- Sithers


    Star Wars Fan is ok too. Hmm thats SWF just like Single White Female? It would be cool to think all those newspaper ads with SWF were Star Wars Fans. hehe :D

    Good one, Droid_Runner. :D

    "Forcies" sounded pretty cool. [face_laugh] Though I'm a Trekkie too...

    we should be called nothing. us star wars people, we're cooler than star trek geeks. we're too cool to have an official name to classify our kind. :D

    besides being so much cooler than trekkie fans, we're far more sophisticated than them and it's much cooler to watch shows like buffy that have star wars references in them, then stuff about star trek.

    Supreme, all powerful, omnipotent, infallible rulers of the Universe! Bwa ha ha! At last we will reveal ourselves to the so-called normal people.... At last we will have our revenge!!!!! [face_devil]


    OK, sorry, just an insane moment. (Those are coming with rather worrisome frequency now.) I pick just plain Star Wars fans.

    Star Wars Fan is a lot classier than Trekkie....

    But for some of us who actually like SW and ST, 'Star Geek' would cover both bases! :D



    (I LOVE SW -- I only like original ST)

    I voted for "other."

    We could just be called Jedi, even though not everybody's on the Light Side of the Force. We could be called Star Wars Geeks or Nerds or whatever, but then there are the people who like Star Wars only for Hayden Christensen or Natalie Portman or Ewan McGregor and they don't deserve the label. :p

    Star Wars Fans. Everything else just sounds like pathetic attempts to come up with labels. Star Wars Fans is what we are and will always be.
