Single or limited deviations from the topic are fine as long as you can bring the aside back to the topic at hand.

Count, there's a new feature that will be released here called Fettipedia, which will compare some of that to start.

By "official site," if you mean StarWars.com, you're of course bringing this up with the wrong people. Note the footer: "The Boba Fett Fan Club is a non-profit, unofficial web site."

This isn't supposed to be in the Dialogue forum. Moving it to General and editing the title to something appropriate.

Since this is now an automatic trigger, I added it to the Rules that new members see before joining. In short, Fett-line sentences for those with ADD.

Glad to know it's supported so far!

In order to maintain a realistic membership count for the board, membership will be managed by some basic parameters. 32 accounts were just dropped because they didn't fit a base limit:

> Within 60 days of Registration, you must log in. (This is separate from Last Login.)
> You must post at least 1 post.

As we hit our 200th registration yesterday, I noticed several members with "0" posts since registering back in February. Now, we're down to 170, but it's 170 active members.

Feel free to post your comments on this board membership requirement.

Which site are you talking about?

Miba, thanks for noticing those small benefits around here. You're right on target about a usable experience. It's certainly a priority around here, but I'm always looking for help and feedback.

Welcome, Cydon Prax. Do you mean the forums at StarWars.com?

Now, just about 200 forum members and 8,500 posts since February 2006.

Despite some slowdown, as of late we're seeing up to 50 new messages a day -- far beyond the previous board and more lately from new members!

Glad it's working out. More to come.

Thanks for your valid and considerate feedback.

I can think of a few reasons why there's such a chatter.
1. The "quick post" feature is one of many improvements to speed up the conversation around here. It's one reason I've secluded the post count to the profile page.
2. This is also getting much more traffic, like the 75 or so new posts just today, even without more than a couple of links from other sites (thus far, I hope).
3. Users here are quite diverse and you're seeing the divide of instant messenging and thorough writing.

Maybe a chat room -- separate from the board -- would solve some of it. Maybe a mantra: "think before you write."

But there are many, many other things in development at BobaFett.com, so any solution would have to come from other volunteers.

Serious Geeking is for serious geeking about Boba Fett. Moving this to the Fans forum...

The limit is 20 messages. Delete some.

Actually, by now, 184 users since February's re-launch.

Please post this in the appropriate forum. Fans, not General.

Deleted 40 off-topic posts, and now re-opening the thread due to popular demand. Enjoy.

Private message material or private thought to yourself aside, please continue on topic.

An official sidestep from the topic to make a note:

There are Rules to follow, especially about threats here. Please review them if you're unclear.

Use the Report button at the right of any offending post and we'll review it.

Thank you to those who keep the boards focused and constructive.

I always figured George Lucas was Boba Fett. wink

Miba, thanks for the news. I just elaborated on it for a news post, front and center at BobaFett.com.

Draco, you can find it at Things From Another World, a BFFC-approved outlet.


(20 replies, posted in Dialogue)

No, that's not an error. But thanks for asking. It's a new feature here, so some people may not be used to it.
