Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

Yay!! New boards, I like how it looks. Now to edit my profile, hehe...

btw, as I was first going to make this post I forgot about signing in and I was like, "Hey, where's the reply button?" I actually spent about two whole minutes looking for a reply button and refreshing before it hit me. lol

oh, btw again, to those who don't know, I was Obi-Wan_Fett before.

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

Not sure where ideas go, but how about a main message board for collectors to discuss upcoming Fett toys and etc?

I agree... But I think the entire forum layout could be redone to be better... It is very confusing... I have a few ideas. But I also have questions...

Does everything in the Boba Fett categories have to do with Boba Fett? When it says discuss the Star Wars movies and TV shows, does that mean only about Boba Fett or just in general?

Also, this "General" board... Is this just for talking about anything at all?

And is there any forum here to discuss the Star Wars EU, like the comics and books?

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

Considering this is practically the "first day" of operations again I'm sure it will all fall into place soon enough... But if there was a collecting, EU, comics/books indexes on the main board that would be great big_smile

oh, oh... costuming too big_smile big_smile

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

For collecting, use General
For EU, use Serious Geeking
For costuming, use Creative

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

I hope this forum kicks off like the last one did. I'm happy to join.

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

With word-of-mouth spread, and integration tomorrow with the old board address along with the navigation at BobaFett.com, it might.

This board will totally rock, just like the last one!  Worry not!
Where else on the net would you rather be for your Fettish?

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

And asides from Fettishes, the boards are cool anyway, I don't really go to any other boards. The sw.com ones are stupid now, and TFN gives me a headache with the multiple-colored backgrounds.

I go to a few other boards... I do agree with you on the starwars.com ones, but TFN I'd have to disagree. I love that place. You you are entitled to your oppinion.

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

Oh, I'm not saying that TFN is bad, not at all. I'd love to post there and be an active member there. But the multiply-changing colors (why must every page be a different color?) just make my head hurt. Otherwise I'd post there a lot. I did try a few times to be a member there but it didn't really work out.

I do agree, it can be a tad confusing. But it gives the graphic artists (like me) something to do besides make icons... The forums are also hard to navigate because there are so many... But there are so many forums because there are so many members. Tis the troubles of a large message board like that...

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

I love this message board because the people are so nice.  On other boards, people are always yelling at each other and trying to kill each other.  Sure, we have our moments, but we usually get along.

I noticed that too... But I like it when people try to flame me... I get to test my ability to defeat them without retaliating.

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

We did have a trollish type poster once a long time ago, about the same time I was offered a modship, but I said no cause I was afraid I'd use the power for against him and that would have made me as bad as he was.

Otherwise, yeah, the posters here are very nice!! smile

I post over there occaisionally.  I love reading the fan fic (gee, there's a shock).
But the glorious technicolor and frantic piling of text gives me acid flashbacks.  Today it blew my mind with the Valentine's day theme.  I wasn't expecting the brightness.

I also find the boards a bit hectic and confusing.

The SW boards are wild, like this free for all.

Mostly, though, I find them both too , dare I say "Jedi Centric"  for my tastes.  There's a bit of opening up with the clone troopers, and I think with the Mandalorian culture stuff released, that may change.

Last, I really like the camraderie this board fosters, and I enjoy the interactions we all have.  We're the hard cores that walk the razor's edge, and dare to like the most infamous bounty hunter around. We've never had a flame war. Everyone has a good time.  The staff work their butts off to make this a great place. I have not found another board like this for SW, or any of the other fan things I'm into.   Who'd have thought Fett's board would give you a warm and fuzzy?

Yeah, that is an interesting thought... I think a lot of it may be that us Fett fans share common interests. For one, we all like Boba Fett. It might have been the relatively small size of the forum... Before it had over 1,000 members. Relative to TheForce.net, or some other boards, that is not a large number. (Don't get me wrong though, that is still a lot of members...) Or, it could just be that Fett fans are smart enough to realize that flaming won't get you anywhere.

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

Well, it was Boba who taught us, "Those who anger you own you." wink And a smaller number of posters is good cause it allows you to get to know people more, instead of knowing a lot of people only a little bit.

And, yay!  *group hugs too*

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

Wow, really love the new boards. Recently I've been sorta dormant on here. (Work taking up toooooo much time.)

The only thing that I think sucked was that my account was deleted sad   lol

Either way, keep up the good job!
