    I agree with whoever said that EVERY admin and mod better be online at 8pm. This is going to be scary, and you know the wackos will be out in full force. Which is another reason I'm still wondering about this...there's been very little admin or TF.n response on this, and I would think that they would want to be all over it.


    But, I do dearly wish it's true. :)

    That tells me that its either him, or someone on his staff. And, considering as how the admins made him a VIP, I'd say its him.

    Thats right, biggest event in TF.N history and

    -Josh says nothing about it on the boards
    -the TF.N homepage says nothing
    -GL doesn't start the thread himself, but is somehow discovered and decides to come clean

    Nevermind what we know about GL's intensely-private nature and total disregard for fan opinion...

    are you kidding me? this is so stupid...someone get Josh in here to sort this out so you morons can stop embaressing yourselves...jeez

    let me put it this way...

    "I've been from one side of the internet to the other. I've seen a lot of wierd stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe that GL would show up here."

    Maybe that's the very reason there's been no publicity of this?

    I don't understand all of that IP tracing stuff. Will someone please explain? Thanks. I'm still sticking with what I said in Community:

    I'm waiting for the "Meet George Lucas" heading on TFN's homepage.

    Maybe, but it doesn't explain why there's been little or no admin/TF.n confirmation in the threads about it on the boards.

    And even without advertising, they'll going to have a time on their hands, which is why I'm surprised the admins aren't all over this. If GL just shows up, starts and thread, and starts posting, there will be pandemonium. For them not to say anything before then seems odd to me.

    I got the same result on tracert as well. If it's not the man himself, it's still definitly someone at Lucasfilm. Who would probably be in a large steaming pile of trouble if they were impersonating the Boss.

    I still don't get how they thought GL could be here "secretly" with his name in VIP colors. Did they really think no one would notice that?

    And I know they can't all be online all the time. But only one mod has said anything, and I've seen Josh come out and post for far less...

    Traceroute shows you all the hops a packet takes to get from one spot to another. It shows you the name of the server it hits as well.

    I too got ns.lucasfilm.com.

    If it isn't real, we can probably still come up with a pretty fast moving, amusing talk.

    The fact that he hasn't been banned yet -- and I'd guess we'd get a denial from the admins if he had been -- suggests that at least insofar as being from LFL, this is real.

    So, hi, LFL, and allow me to re-iterate the thanks for being truly cool about fan sites.

    Now, about intertrilogy novels... ;)

    Edit me if you want, but this is pretty *damn cool.

    I wonder if Peter Mayhew is pissed that somebody's stealing his thunder.
