    [blockquote]A Small Note From Jedi Master Yoda[hr][/hr]Dear Galacitc Citizen,

    Probably one of the best things to know if you get lost in this dangerous place, is that we have Jedi who look after this forum, protecting you from the evil clutches of the Confederacy of Independent Systems;

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=231799]PadmeBra[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=225665]jasman[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=309663]Mar17swgirl[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=423901]DarthSapient[/link] and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=247021]GreenCrossCode[/link] will help you out. Other Jedi roaming around are [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=232847]Commander Antilles[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=238328]AlphaWolf[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=240509]Missninfan[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=323768]cbjedi[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=226853]Vertical[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=242440]NathanDahlin[/link] and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=229118]Lord Bane[/link].

    Should you ever get lost, or find some bounty hunter trying to assassinate you, or have some nasty massif nipping at your heel, please contact them. They are your guardians of peace and justice in this corner of the Galaxy.

    It is also strongly suggested not to take on Sith Lords on your own accord. If you have a problem, contact the Jedi Masters and wait for them to deal with the situation. They are much more skilled in lightsaber fighting techniques than you (special note to Padawans and Jedi Hopefuls).

    Jedi Master, Yoda
    Jedi Council,
    Coruscant

    [hl=yellow]QUESTION #1[/hl]: 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-worth it, trust me. I know you?ve got all sorts of great ideas that you want to share with the other members of this forum, but you need to give yourself some time to familiarize yourself with the forums, and how things work. Observe for a day or so, if you can. You?ll avoid a hard time if you do this, as you?ll be less likely to make a ?rookie mistake?. Try responding to other threads before you start one of your own.

    Great work, guys! A message from Yoda...impressive ;)

    How about adding the first [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=245896]Palpatine=Sidious[/link] thread? I think that's the ultimate "raging since the dawn of fanboy-dom" argument ;)

    I think we will see the newbie rush on Saturday. I think it will only be a test run for the 16th.

    I think we should disable the "New Topic" button on the thread index for users with November register dates for a give amount of time/s... seriously...

    Looks good, Sil. FYI, though: Corde is listed twice in the "Character Threads" section. :)

    I'd say it should be done all day November 2nd, 3rd, and 16th-18th.

    I think there should be an Official Newbie Far Out There Ideas For AOTC thread.

    Remember those silly and non-comprehendable ideas that Newbies had over the past year? Well you'll most likely here every single one of them again in the next two or three weeks. Hopefully they will see the thread and think that their idea may be a bit far-fetched and post it in the Official thread!

    Just a suggestion.

    Don't forget to add this beloved thread to the humor section:

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=2021350&replies=308] Yarael Poof is my dad. [/link]

    Also could I start an Official R2 thread, since I noticed my old one that got locked now got nuked and there isn't anything listed on R2 up here.

    Lobot_Omy -- I've added that humour thread. Go ahead and start an R2 thread (I tried to find the old one, but couldn't) and PM me the link so I can add it.

    :)
