    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?

    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.
