Feel free. I'm welcome to giving the fans some options.
As of now, the Rules have been updated:
This board is for all ages. If anyone has a problem with this topic about posting ages, I can delete it.
With an IP address, someone can find out your exact location.
First and foremost, to clear up any confusion, the posted Rules clearly cover our stance on Privacy: "BFFC respects your privacy. BFFC will not sell your information to advertisers."
Second, IP address records reveal your web provider, not necessarily you. They're recorded here for moderating accounts and throughout BFFC with features like the online poll, in conjunction with cookies to remember your preferences.
Third, with this web site and any others, use your best judgment.
As you can see in the news, even major web sites are prone to privacy issues, either in clumsy programming or aggressive hackers. If anyone is still worried, educate yourself. Just Google it or read this CNET.com article, for example, on privacy.
Yes, you can only have two lines in your sig.
I'll consider thin images if there's already a modification available through punbb.org.
True, but I'd also like to keep the signatures slim, so we can focus on the quality of the messages.
Since flaming is never allowed, that topic suffix isn't necessary.
Maybe this is just good role playing, but let's not threaten each other here.
bobathekid, welcome to The Boba Fett Fan Club message boards! It's great to have your question here. I'm sure Boba Fett was a lot like you at your age. To let you in on a Fett secret, you can ask a couple of Fetts some questions themselves at http://www.bobafett.com/askfett/.
In case anyone's noticed, I've deleted the last ten posts, and edited the one now above this.
Read the Rules. "You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this board to post any material which is 1) abusive and 2) profane."

KudarMubat15, it was only locked because we had this board in development. No use in registering twice, especially since the accounts didn't carry over.
Having started all this, I'd like to know if anyone remembers the site from the beginning, in 1996. The boards, as noted above in the Announcement, were rolled out in 2001.
To keep the boards fast and clean, we're just experimenting with avatars for the time being.
I'll double check. The titles and stars might be on different numbers, as they're both custom.
OK, let's take a breather. No fouls, but let's review:
1. In using this board, the Rules include: "Be respectful of other users." Let's keep criticism to a minimum; even if a personal belief in the matter, please make an effort to be less aggressive and more constructive.
2. These boards are very easy to use, as we can see with over 1,500 posts within the first two weeks. Just because we have a Quick Post option now, doesn't mean you're good to go. Usefulness is not a requirement, but clarity is appreciated and builds the community. This is meant to be more than just a fan site.
3. The visitors here are from all around the world, all different ages. There's no reason to dumb it down, but there certainly is motivation for the opposite: thoughtful ideas, coherent stories, and long discussions. Take advantage.
Ursula, Front Page is absolutely not the only thing. As one of the worst web authoring tools out there, Front Page may make things look easy, with "What You See Is What You Get," but it's tailored to Microsoft with unstandard and convoluted methods. That said, the tried-and-true standard for a WYSIWYG editor is Dreamweaver, originally by Macromedia and now by Adobe, for the Mac and PC. There's a nice balance of working visually, or working with the HTML to see how things work. Adobe GoLive was also an option, but has less of a market share than Dreamweaver; with the companies merged, GoLive would probably be the one to go.
Notepad, or better yet EditPad, for the PC is also something to consider if you're looking to start with the basics and learn the programming. It's certainly getting easier these days, with these parts called DIV layers and Cascading Style Sheets. If you're interested in learning, that's where you'll end up.
You can see more of how BFFC is built in our Colophon. As things get fancier around here, though, no more will viewing the source code help in knowing the tricks. But, nevertheless, peeking at that option in your browser is a way to learn.
THE FLASH, can you use a Topic name that says the match, like "Aurra Sing vs. Zuckuss" ? Thanks.
Yes, of course we do. You started the topic in January 2005.
Can you make your Topic names more complete? "things" and "Missing" are missing the point. Thanks.
Please stay on topic. You can use Private Messages, by the way. It's a new feature here.
ARC Fett, where does it say Chrys made the track? Sorry you're still confused.
RC-3222, glad you like it!
Those who need a guide to avatars, I'll see what I can do. It also might be fun to tag-team with Kudar and company to churn out avatars that people can request AFTER they're made.
Lt. Gay Ellis, when we were testing the boards last month, we wanted a pretty slim left area, compared to other boards. But, if there's enough interest, there is certainly a worldly set of people here!
