    Before this all heats up even more than it has in the last week - before we have a movie to pour over...

    I just want to put a big thank you out there for all the staff of our home here. Thanks for diligently posting the news and feeding our obsessions - from the small news pieces to the large. Thanks for maintaining a pretty awesome forum space, where negativity is pretty much non-existent compared to some others and all opinions are welcome (and welcome to be debated).

    Thanks @Kyle for the made reviews, @Trevor for being a force ghost, @Wuher for taking care of our credits, and @Pomojema and @Viral Hide for the investigations. It's been awesome, and I'll be sticking around here for the forseeable Star Wars future. If there is anyone in particular you guys notice I've missed out that you think deserves just as many thanks, feel free to tag them in the thread - you guys are just the few whose names ring out. And thanks for keeping it all grammatically correct and ad-free - heaven knows we see enough of that around the internet super-highway...

    None of you get paid to do this, you're in it for the love.

    If anyone else has similar sentiments they want to put out there, here is a thread for it.

    You're very welcome. We spend a lot of time in conversation on Cantina matters in order to keep it this way, but the reason it is this way is because of you, the members, that want for a place like this...we're just the "hall monitors" that come running when you need us!! :)

    I agree with @Mark Y Moon thanks for everything!

    On a side note, I was starting to watch the latest Jedi Council and they have Justin Bolger from theforce.net on...
    Since they are always referencing the SWNN site, could we see any of you there, one of this days?

    I'm not sure where they record their show, but if they ever invited us and one of us lived close enough it could happen.

    We should form MeetUp Groups on that app for this forum in the various areas where we all live. :D.

    They often reference the AMC Burbank 16 as being close by.
    I always thought you had some kind of contact with them, since you post their episodes on the site and they often reference SWNN.

    I vote for one of you to be in the "special the force awakens recap & review" episode (they have to have one, right?)

    PS: in my mind my vote is enough of an incentive for them to invite you!

    Soon after the Jedi Council show started John Campea contacted me asking if we're interested in appearing on the show. Unfortunately we don't have staff members in LA. But I am sure we will have some kind of collaboration with them in the future. We can always ask them to join us on the podcast. :)

    Forgot to mention @Hard Case - along with many others I'm sure.

    We only need to look at the vast amounts of positive vs negative ratings on every single users info bar to know how good of a virtual place we have here.

    If I get into a college in L.A. this year, I would be very, very interested, but I don't think I would be experienced enough or old enough :p

    Second all greetings given to this site and is staff.

    @Viral Hide many thanks for giving us something to watch, follow and cheer about. I also thank and praise all StarWarsNewsNet Staff for their works and dedication on providing all of us, Star Wars Fans, the insights on our favorite Universe and characters.

    StarWar7News quickly became my morning faithfull companion, every single day i started taking my coffee and watching the Sports Newspapers and StarWars7News over the internet, by now i watch StarWars7News first and again later in the day sometimes even at night. StarWars7News became a close companion and all of guys out there (@Viral Hide, @Trevor, @Rebo, and all the other Staff members included) turn out to be old Friends by now.

    A Special Thank You for the comic guys, @Kyle @Hard Case and @LadyMusashi for all the hours i have spent reading your reviews, i wouldn't change it for nothing.

    Thank You !!!!!

    My sentiments exactly. How I came across this site....I honestly can't remember...but I think it was part of a google search lol. Thats how I came to be here and will remain here for as long as I can. I love SW. I love everything about it except a few gripes here and there but damn, it feels good to find a SW community where I can feel belong to. Thank you.
