I joined up during the first few weeks of set photos for TFA. Great times.
Star Wars A New Hope made me join TFN.
The teaser trailer for The Phantom Menace.
Questions about the meaning of the Padawan ponytail (one of the first pictures of Ewan as Obi-Wan) drove me to this site in 1998.
Hmmm. TFA is #1 and #2. So the 2 revivals of the series lead to the 2 top reasons for joining.
I tried to join as Cos Dasith (sic). Notice the misspelling because I was immediately banned when I joined using the correct spelling of the Emperor in the first draft of The Star Wars. Not a good start.
So I joined as Prince Valorum. However, no matter how much I love Vader and how much I initially didn’t like the Emperor in ROTJ , and how initially disappointed I was with TPM, I loved Ian as Palpatine and Sidious in TPM. So I changed to Prince Espaa Valorum and had Senator Palpatine as my icon.
I probably left in 2006 and didn’t return until TFA was in production. Technologically incompetent that I am I could not access my old account and then accidentally created a new account with my Hotmail address as my TFN username. Ugh. If I’d been a mole on the Death Star, I’d have destroyed it out of sheer technological incompetence and I would haved saved many Rebel lives.
So, I’m a sock of a sock of a sock of a banned sock. Oh dear, will I be banned for this?
I joined during the production of TFA in 2014.
Technically, I joined because it was a very long wait between TPM and AOTC and I needed fans to commiserate with and a place to read all the ideas about how Episodes 2-3 would turn out. Mostly in fanfic.
R1. After it's release I started seeking out other fans to converse with and remembered my old email address so I ended up registering finally.
ANH made me want to join these boards, because I wanted to learn all I could about the Star Wars universe. I actually joined after ROTS came out though.
Originally joined in ‘03, after lurking for a while in 3SA. I was a total WNUgget.
I looked at threads on here for a number of years before joining. The build up to The Last Jedi finally convinced me to join in Oct. 2017.
The old layout was busier and not as user-friendly -- the one with Han in Carbonite in the wallpaper.
TPM as a lurker, AOTC as an active poster, spent a lot of time in the 3SA talking about sideburns and whether or not Lando's father Grando would make a showing.
To be clear - I joined post-TPM in anticipation of AotC and went all in on this thing that I had been previously unaware of... "Spoilers"
I wanted them so badly I even would read SuperShadow's site
ANH...I remember not giving a **** about any of my other Christmas presents in 1996 because I got ANH on VHS (thanks Gramma <3
) and I watched it non-stop. Didn't get access to the internet until like 2001 and discovered google and voila. Boom. I'm here.
Revenge of the Sith - my excitement for the film (and consequent listening to The Forcecast) got me to stumble upon TFN proper, and then message boards seemed like a good idea at the time. I actually managed to get out! But then I came back three years later, fool that I was.
Young Jedi Knights got me into searching for Star Wars online, not any of the films.
