Well, Site Staff has known this has been an issue for some time but as it seems to be getting worse of late we're being forced to step in and making this announcement. Advertising of off-site forums/websites designed to compete with/siphon off users from the JC Forums is not allowed and will not be tolerated. Offsites that are natural offshoots of various fanclubs and used to promote healthy activity back here on these forums are perfectly acceptable. However the creation of exclusive clubs and groups designed to divide our fandom and siphon off users from our community (whether purporting to be a fanclub or "social club") is not. The promotion of such on these Forums is a bannable offense. We've received numerous complaints over the past few weeks regarding these exclusive clubs and the toxic, divisive atmosphere they create. Their advocacy will not be tolerated. This will constitute your only warning. We are a community, a community in which all should feel welcome. This community is not set up as anyone's personal plaything to act as judge and jury with regards to who is "acceptable" and who is not. We are all here to share in our fandom of Star Wars, we are all acceptable. To those that disagree or can't get with that program, I am going to suggest that you learn how to play nice with everybody, or else pretty soon you will be playing with nobody. If anyone has questions regarding this or any other policy please PM site staff.
