    I don't have friends in real life who care about star wars as much as I do. So back around season 3 of the Clone Wars when it was really getting good I desperately needed to find people to talk to and I found this place.

    I registered in the summer of 2001, when I was looking for local Fan Forces and just stayed in the regional FF section (was in Albany NY at the time)

    Wound up meeting up with a few others, only one of which wanted to start up a local chapter. He introduced me to the larger JCC community, and to the Geriatric Ward, and I quickly learned he was full of himself. I cannot name the user, as we don't talk about banned users **coughcoughBEEZEL26coughcough**

    The soundtrack title fiasco for Episode I brought me to the site, where I lurked for weeks before committing to join, but Episode II rumormongering, fan fic, and the NJO discussion threads kept me around.

    My friend from high school told me about this website. I had seen the OT and TPM but sometime around 2001 is when I REALLY got into Star Wars. These boards were the source of a lot of info.

    Hmmm... I think my dad just searched "Star Wars forum", and here y'all were... Two months later and I don't think I could live without it [face_laugh]

    I had an account back in 2012 or 13 and must've fallen away from posting, then when TFA was on the horizon I joined up and have been sneaking into the store cupboard at work to lurk and chat and contribute to the Sith agenda ever since...

    It has been some time since I made a visit to the Jedi Council! The better part of my formative years were spent here, predominantly in Hooper McFinney's Bar & Grille (insert many LOL's here). :D

    My older brother and a friend of his actively Role Played here under the moniker(s) Juno_Epsilon & Jace_Halycron. I had to scratch my head unbelievably hard to recall that information!

    Shout-outs to GrandAdmiralJello, Thok, Yomin-Carr, Protege-of-Thrawn, Wildwookiee, Yun-Yuuzhan & nithrak_tewl. There's so many more names I've forgotten! I was absolutely thrilled to see a 20 year celebration; hopefully my next visit will be sooner than the 30. ;)

    I found the JC a year or so after The Phantom Menace, after a year of thinking I was The First Twelve Year Old To Ever Write Fanfiction. I had another account before this one, but this is the one I used where I actually was able to...have social skills.

    Absolutely can't remember why. Maybe I checked the for some EP1 info and kept coming here for reasons that elude me.

    20 years. Gods.

    I remember lurking here without an account for years-since the sixth grade or earlier even. I didn't get an account until 2016. Though I was familiar with the site for at least half a decade prior.

    After TLJ I felt the need to talk about SW more than what any of my friends could endure, so I googled "Star Wars Forum" and here I am.

    Probably an Alta vista search on Mosaic for fanfiction sometime shortly after TPM came out. Or it could have a been a search for tips on playing X-Wing or a search looking for SW sound effects .wav files. I honestly don’t remember. It was a very nice distraction from grad school. We had a T1 connection at the lab so I would download threads to my Palm so I could read them at home without having to fight with the slowness of the dial-up connection.

    Just looked for some information on EpII which brought me to TFN. I then decided to click on the forum to see what that was about and found what I had actually imagined would be a good idea in my head was already happening.
    The first forum I found, and still among the best.
