    Maybe I am missing some major threads, etc, but I cannot find where we discuss things like Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, Star Tours, Hyperspace Mountain and all the other Star Wars related topics. Can anyone point me to the correct forum for these Star Wars topics?

    I've just done a finger-tip search through the available forums, and I think you are right.

    I also recall seeing some place where physical events and locations could be discussed, but I cannot see them either. Something is missing; maybe it got archived, or maybe it was something at one of our previous homes, eg. IGN, or the Temp Boards...

    There's been some minor mentions of a few of those in various threads in the SWC in the past. Nothing major though. If you'd like to create a thread there to encompass one (or all) of those in the SWC it would certainly be an appropriate option.

    I know we have a Galaxy's edge thread in Lit but I think that's more for book/comic discussion. I'd go with Bardan's suggestion.

    There's a Galaxy's Edge thread in the Rise of Skywalker film forum. Might have to go back a page to find it.

    Star Wars Community doesn't seem like the right place for it. And the ROS forum is definitely not the right place for it.

    Since we're now in the Era of Disney, we could use a new forum for theme parks and the like. It would make sense to put it under Fan Activities.

    Agreed here. Thought it was an odd place when I saw that thread.

    Not entirely obvious to have it there IMO.

    This is a fair point.

    @LAJ_FETT This issue has previous come up for discussion in MS in the past year or so. For obvious reasons we should not rehash it here, but I think MS could revisit this.

    Yeah, given Galaxy's Edge we should probably revisit the discussion.

    Edit - I couldn't find the initial discussion thread in MS so I've opened a new one there.

    I don't want to be a mod. I just want a place to discuss my love of Disney and Star Wars.

    And what about Star Tours? Hyperspace Mountain? Star Traders? Those Star Wars Weekends? There is a lot more to Star Wars in theme parks than Galaxy's Edge.

    And I am not sure SWC is the right home for it. That forum is largely for social threads, fan clubs and games. I was more asking about how the Mod Squad discussion on the topic was going. Are you saying the MS consensus was to create one thread in SWC for all of the theme park discussion?

    Yes, it was the decision that an entire forum for theme parks isn't warranted at this time (the thread title will probably be changed to reflect Star Wars Theme Parks). If there's a ton of traffic and it increases activity in the SWC, then it could certainly be made its own forum.

    As for why SWC, it's billed as 'A social forum for the discussion of anything Star Wars that doesn't seem to fit anywhere else' so that's why it got put there.

    Cool. Thanks for discussing it. I probably won't participate.
