    Welcome to the Star Wars Community Forum!

    Forum Purpose

    You have just taken your first steps into a much larger world -- er, forum. Well, not larger in the sense that it?s physically more considerable, but larger in terms of possibility. In this forum, you can engage in lighthearted discussions centered around Star Wars topics that don?t seem to fit in the other forums.

    You can confess your love for Kit Fisto in his own fan club, compare and contrast Anakin Skywalker and his son, contemplate the recipe for stir-fried Ewok?the possibilities are as endless as the saga itself. In addition, you can participate in casual games, line-by-lines, fan clubs, and defense forces.

    If you have any questions, concerns, problems, or anxieties, the forum mods are always more than happy to help. Always two there are: Sinrebirth and Qui-Gon_Reborn. You can reach either of them via PM at all hours of one galactic day or night.

    In addition, if you would like to post a general topic of concern or discussion about the SWC forum as a whole, you?re more than welcome to do so in the SWC Communications Thread.

    SWC Forum Policies

    I. There is no emotion; there is peace.

    You?ve heard it over and over again, and you?re about to hear it once or twice or three times more. Discuss the films, not the fans. Because, at the end of the day, when the twin suns have set in the Tatooine sky, we?re all fans here, and when you make a personal attack on your fellow user concerning their fandom/ethnicity/gender/etc., it derails the topic and ruins a potentially enjoyable conversation. So don?t do it. If you think your comment could be perceived as intentionally negative, you?re better off rewording the statement or just not posting it!

    Pay special heed to the new kids on the block. Remember, you were a newbie once, just the same. Hazing will be tolerated 0% of the time, and shutting someone out of a conversation just because they?re new will be tolerated even less. Be considerate and use common sense.

    II. There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.

    Be sure to check the SWC Thread Index. before starting a new topic to ensure that your thread isn?t redundant. If your thread is already in existence but is locked up tight by the evil auto-locker machine, contact an SWC mod so they can unlock it for you. If you say please.

    There?s something to be said for stopping and thinking. Do it often and do it well. Make sure you?re adding to each conversation in as positive a manner as humanly possible. Note that this does not imply that we must all agree about everything all the time. That is a state of being best known as?well?boring? You may disagree, but do so with respect for the opinions of those around you.

    III. There is no passion; there is serenity.

    Flaming, baiting, and trolling are bad, bad, bad things that will get you in serious trouble. Do not, under any circumstances, engage in any of these activates. If someone directs an inflammatory statement towards you, do not respond in kind. Do not post with hostile intent or to purposefully elicit negative response. Do not harass or antagonize your fellow users. Do not hesitate; show no mercy. Go forth, Lord Vader, and do what must be done.

    If you feel that a thread is inappropriate, contact a mod. Right away. Don?t try to resolve the situation yourself, and definitely do not post something along the lines of ?this should be locked!? or ?this topic is going to be locked.? First of all, there is a distinct possibility that your assessment is incorrect, and the thread could, in fact, be acceptable. Second of al
