    True, there was also the mod who shall remain nameless crying because Disney only gave us each two free tickets.

    This is why you failed as a mod. You take small things and exaggerate them to ridiculous lengths. I had to deal with it for over a year so it's not like I'm not used to it. :rolleyes:

    You're new, so of course the Disney sweeteners were going to be a surprise. I was, personally, sick of the corporate mandates.

    I was just following Luke's lead.

    Listen, I made it clear why I felt the way we did: you all showed me the documentation, and the mods have been in strict agreement with Disney-Lucasfilm to promote the movies and encourage a positive brand image since 2014. After all the work that’s been done, I figured that was worth a sincere “Thank you” and not the “Here, fetch” it feels like we get instead.

    Man, I totally forgot about Chiznuk’s Thomas Kincaid painting. [face_laugh]

    He's a misunderstood genius just like Johnson.

    What kind of woman do you think I am?
    We’ve already established that. Now we’re just haggling over the price.

    Not just the Oscars, but the Golden Globes and the Baftas too!

    I think TLJ was snubbed a nomination for Best Director, Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (Adam Driver).
    It's so obvious that the Academy hate Star Wars and it has been snubbing SW since 1978.

    There aren't enough likes to accurately reflect how much I love this. May the First be with you!

    I know this thread is largely sarcastic but it also seems like a great time to sincerely state how glad I am that the worst of Legends fan fiction won’t ever get to see the light of day because of people who have artistic taste that goes beyond Star Wars exclusively, including Rian Johnson.

    Conversely, I also love that the best of Legends fan fic that’s worthy of keeping like Thrawn lives on. Right down to Zahn’s actual involvement.

    He will without a doubt deliver the sexiest scene in Star Wars history, which is saying something because he already created the top 3.

    1) Luke furiously Milking the Alien boob.
    2) Epic Reylo Hand Sex.
    3) Epic Reylo Thigh grab.

    Topping these will be impossible, but this is Rian, impossible won't be an issue.

    Right?

    @PymParticles You might consider editing your "positive brand image" post. You already know I agree with the sentiment, but I don't know if that's something we really want out there?

    Oh, and @Artoo-Dion ? Maybe you should just grow the hell up. You made your choice.

    @Trebor Sabreon I don’t see the point in hiding it any longer. It should be completely clear to everyone by this point that we’re shilling the new films as hard as we can because we’re on something resembling Disney’s payroll. I expect to be well paid, I’m just in this for the money. Might as well be up front about it.

    It's just that I know you're still fairly new to modding and all, and this is the type of thing we'd usually run by the rest of MS before putting it out there. But if that's how you feel, man. I mean, it's already public, I guess.

    I honestly feel like this is a betrayal. I mean we've demoted people for less than this and @PymParticles should know better.

    The checks are already cashed so it’s too late to do anything about it now, nerds ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Don't risk the future checks for all of us! Well, too late, I reread the NDA and all future subsidies are cut off & we now have to reimburse Disney for those already cashed because SOMEONE went public.

    (I'm keeping the stuffed Porg no matter what.)

    I didn't want to get anyone in trouble, but see? I you feel this way (and I know you actually like Pym), there's no telling what some of the mods from the other parts of the site are going to think about it. [face_dunno]

    We'll see what the admins think. I feel like this is grounds for demotion but it's not my call. You also should have read the contract better because it states if you're demoted for any reason you have to repay the money.

    I do like him just like I used to like @EHT before he became a Dion supporter. But he went too far!

    You can pry the keys to the beach house I bought out of my cold, dead Canadian hands.
