    I'm not sure why it was ever stickied - probably because there was a new thing happening. That's not the case anymore. Everything's gotten old. Even Star Wars being bad has gotten old.

    At this stage the thread is as much bad news as the other stickied thread in there. It's just depressing. What is the latest thing - something somebody posted on Twitter or the lowdown on uncouth private business of the actor who plays Darth Maul.

    The JCC used to be the only place around here where you didn't have to tolerate dumb fan theories or endless debates over which film sucks less. It was strictly social. Can it please be that again?

    I'm not even asking to go back to WDDSWITJCC. Just unstickie the thread, and let nature run its course.

    Who's with me?

    Early on in the thread, before any TFA teaser had come out, I threw out the idea of sticky-ing the thread since we were losing our minds at the thought of new SW and it was kind of an exciting time.

    In hindsight this was obviously a mistake and I apologize for my part in it. I had no idea what was to come (not just the thread but the franchise as a whole).

    FORGIVE ME!

    Though I do not frequent JCC often if at all,

    I have spoken to @heels1785 about this in the past

    you'd think you have to type in a whole new URL to talk star wars or something ;)

    the rest of us SW nerds don't bite, I promise.

    I prefer absolutely no Star Wars in the JCC, but if we're going to allow it, the thread should be stickied so newbs can find it easily instead of opening terrible new threads about Star Wars. I don't mind it at all because it's just one thread and I never open it. Also, lol, I just realized/remembered I put the thread starter on ignore, so I never even see the thread anymore. If you don't want to see the thread anymore, just put the thread starter on ignore. The thread starter hasn't been seen since Sep 27 2019, and doesn't have any other relevant threads, so you're not missing anything.

    It should be unstickied, locked, and cast back into the fires of Mount Doom where it was forged. No half measures.

    I actually did put that thread's OP on ignore, but now it's the principle of the thing. :p

    I don't even know the thread starter. I think it's wonderful he is so terrible that fine posters have him or her on ignore. It rhymes. Like poetry.

    As someone who very rarely dips into Community (usually for Arena stuff), a hundred times this. It's one thread, it's easy to ignore, and being stickied prevents eleventyteen thousillion misguided threads from newbies. If you unsticky it, you're going to see more Star Wars in Community, not less, because newbies exist.

    That thread is like Hot Pockets. Coarse, irritating and gets everywhere.

    In that case I would say we'd be much better served by unstickying the thread, locking it, casting it into the fires of Mount Doom, and then posting a new, locked sticky titled "DO NOT POST ABOUT STAR WARS IN COMMUNITY" and the post proper could just be one of those gifs of a skull playing trumpet. Same basic function, massive improvement overall.

    Advising a community to put whole threads on ignore is at odds with the very notion of having a community.

    There ought to be no stickied threads of any sort, so I'd be onboard with this.

    I agree with the idea of banning all Star Wars discussion in any forum on the site.

    Keep it stickied up top, but lock it. Then it will serve as a perpetual warning, like Polynices' corpse left to rot outside the walls of Thebes, only way less literary and more like a Star Wars movie or, worse, a dead thread about Star Wars movies.
