    Some of you may have noticed a bit more moderator activity in this forum in the past few weeks. That is because the FF staff has been paying closer attention and is in the middle of coming up with some new guidelines and policies for this forum to help give it an 'identity' or purpose.

    In the meantime, please note that this is not an RPG forum. Threads that exist solely to create yet another room, temple, plant, or whatever for people that already post in one of the numerous established social threads risk being locked immediately.

    On a similar note, please do not bump up old threads for the same purpose.

    FF Community Mods will be posting something in the near future. We are not aiming to completely change this forum, but to give it more definite purpose and create a community where all FF members are welcome to meet each other.

    Does this mean you're locking all the threads that are here right now?

    No, we are not locking not all threads, but there are some threads without any purpose but spam or if you like it more euphemistic to boost the post-count.
    And we just like to remember that this is the FanForce.

    I'm not going to lock anything right now, but I wouldn't be surprised if the recently bumped threads were locked by the FFC mods at some point in the near future. I believe there are plans to allow a fair number of social threads, but to limit any new ones, including who can start them (considering this is Fan Force Community).

    Ohh, this sounds good. I like it. Should bring a more...expansive range of our fellow board members here. There's only a handful of threads that are really active here, any new people would most certainly be welcome!

    How far are you with your plans about the new/updated guidelines and policies for this board now?

    Or do you know (approximately of course) when we have to expect the new guidelines and policies?

    I think this is a pretty pointless forum, all these threads could easily go into the JC.

    FanForce and JC Forums are separate basically as far as I know.

    They both sort of carry the same topics, I don't see the point of this forum.

    Quellonis, the FFC is for FFer to discuss topics concerning the FF. It's about FF, which is a bit different to the JC. And as far as I understand the first post, the RSAs and GSAs are working on a "new" identity for this board.

    It shows your lack of knowledge about this forum. The JC and FF have quite different histories and the move of the FF to IGN made the JC and FF using the same Forum. We don't want to seperate the FF and the JC, but we are not the same entity.
    And not to forgot the FF wants to improve the interaction of Star Wars Fans not just virtual, but in Real Life, too.
    I would never have met such wonderful people like CrazyMike, Obi-Anne, strilo, TwiLekJedi, quite some people from the FF France, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, UK and not to forget my own FF, if not for the FanForce Boards.
    Sorry for everyone I didn't mention, but you know who you are and that I never would forget you! :)

    And if you don't see point of this forum, then you don't need to post here.
