Mandalorian, no problem. smile Just glad to explain the bigger picture.

There's a list of 9 ways to help, aside from the programming issue. (Help with the news delay is actually a Wordpress issue, migrated off of MovableType, and some design work to tie it back into the site.)

Sure, this site is 11 years old. It's getting older. But it's never been better, too. 500 unique visitors with 3,000 pageviews a day. The message boards rank #2 in popularity. Consider the other hits here, like Humor > Caption, Multimedia or  and Manual.

1. One part of the home page -- the news -- is under construction, yes, and the clock ticks off the days. As for "they," there is only one person volunteering web development improvements. There's a volunteer ad posted. In the interim, most news has been posted on these boards. But thank you for your observation and your interest. Consider subscribing to the RSS feed, so you get your news as soon as that feature is back on.

2. What Boba Fett stuff would you like to see? This site is filled with it. And a handful of people here are beta testing a brand new feature I'm sure you'll enjoy. Browse the "Dialogue" forum here for more news on site updates.

3. RPGs are one part of the message boards, but there are around 10-20 posts or replies each day. Feel free to start new topics, revive older ones or invite new people to the boards by spreading the word about BFFC.

All in all, this is a not-for-profit, unofficial web site, run by many different types of volunteers and consumed by fans and spectators from around the world. It's very much alive. But please contact me directly at the e-mail below and I'll happily field your questions, comments, concerns or ideas. Thanks. smile

More sections of BFFC (not these boards) will be under construction in the coming days and weeks. A lot of content will be taken down temporarily and put back up in a more sustainable, secure method.

Anyone interested in helping can see the volunteers we need on our help page.

Thanks for your patience!

- Do you mind if I have a swig of this?
- Go right ahead.

- Listen to me Hillary. I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist only to lose her to her childhood lover who she last saw on a deserted island who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French underground.
- I know. It all sounds like some bad movie.

In today's LancasterOnline.com (Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA) an article by Carla Di Fonzo on summer blockbusters -- namely the new Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer film -- included an appearance of "Boba Fett"... in the interview:

"It's all about the Silver Surfer, dude — anyone who sees the movie is going to see him," said Danford Rivers, York-based comic book collector and critic. "Everyone pretty much agrees the first one was lame, but man, the Silver Surfer is the Boba Fett of the Marvel universe. And I'm semiashamed to say this will put my rear in a theater seat."

Agree? Disagree? Discuss. smile

It's been experiencing "growing pains" recently, so I'd like to open it up to the community for questions, comments, concerns and ideas. And feel free to ask amongst yourself more questions about this topic.

What do you LIKE seeing on the home page? What do you IGNORE over (points to looking closely right now)?

What SHOULD be on the home page? What kind of features would YOU contribute to?

Thanks. smile

You can only upload an image for your avatar right now. Otherwise, you can use BBCode to link to or display (appropriate) images that are available online, uploaded by you or someone else.

No, it's on the air and I'm talking about Fett the character, not Jeremy Bulloch.
