    Hi there to ALL members and friends.I was thinking in HOW can anyone can be a better member and better friend in The Cantina?I only have a few months in The Cantina and i want to share my personal experience with ALL.First i join the site because I LOVE STAR WARS.I want to share also that i REALLY don't know everything about SW.EVERYDAY i learn something NEW.I had found a LOT of GREAT people and friends that REALLY like to share their ideas,theory of SW.Also their knowledge of SW too.The staff members ARE very friendly and LOVE to help everybody.Since i join i feel like a family member from the first day.I had found REALLY GOOD threads with a LOT of GOOD information about SW.Sometimes those threads are SO DEEP that the ONLY thing that i do is READ.This is ONE tip that i can share with ALL.If a person don't know that much about a theme or topic is BETTER to read only that post something that can affect the thread.The site has a system to rate everybody post and i like this.I try to be very friendly with everybody BUT sometimes we can hurt someone feelings by mistake.It had happen to me and i just say I'm sorry to hurt your feelings Forgive me and if that person said something bad to me i forgive him back.We are a FAMILY and we MUST keep our FAMILY together.My second tip is:Be WISE and think TWICE when you post.Reading the forum rules and regulation is WISE but being a GOOD member and a GOOD friend must be our GOAL.If you want to share your personal experience here in The Cantina you can do it here.Also if you have a few tips HOW to be a better member and a better friend in The Cantina you can do it too.I want to say from the bottom of my heart....I Love SW and being part ot this FAMILY is for me a GREAT honor guys....:).GOD blessings to ALL and .....

    Good one @Light Savior_47 IMO being a good & better member is always to think before you post because it could have consequences later on I have learned to post when I feel I can relate to what previous members have discussed sometimes they work sometimes they don't but everybody has a opinion, I have been here a year had some ups & some downs but that's on me I appreciate the members who have followed me & I in turn have followed great members, may the force be with you.

    Yes, ALWAYS try to understand the viewpoint of your fellow member in conversations and debates, regardless of how off-base or silly that you think their perspective is, try to understand their perspective without belittling or arguing.

    Always rate you fellow members' posts appropriately, and never participate in "ratings wars". Being the voice of reason and stability will gain one a lot of respect in this place.

    Always remember that this is a place of peace and harmony, whether you are a Jedi Master or a Sith Lord. This is the round table where weapons are left at the door, topics are debated, and the good of the Galaxy is cemented....not the War Room where battles are planned. :)

    Lighty, my mate. You know I think you're great, and I value you here as a forumite immensely.

    But for the love of God get the space bar fixed on whatever you type with!

    The lack of double spaces after the full stops in your sentences makes my brain hurt, like a lot, and I really like reading your posts. So please, please, please have consideration for my poor, feeble, tired brain and chuck some double spacing after those sentances are finished.

    Keep on keeping on, my friend, you have a lovely soul and I look forward to more foruming with you in the future.

    Peace out,

    Jo

    It is so wonderful to hear someone share this feeling, and I am in total agreement. I am grateful for this website and for everyone who participates and shares in our enjoyment of all things Star Wars.

    Our interests in Star Wars have helped us gather here, and we are blessed there are such forums where we can ask questions, trade suggestions, gain new perspectives, respectfully and constructively debate interpretations and theories, and enjoy each other's company.

    No matter how strong we feel about a certain aspect of Star Wars, or life in general, we should always be mindful of our words, what we say, how those things might come across to other people, realizing that there are other perspectives and feelings, and trying to be as understanding, forgiving, and positive as possible.

    The Star Wars galaxy is a vast one, and there's more than enough room for everyone here!

    It is essential to give other people respect, to listen to what they are saying, to be considerate and polite, so that we might also be respected, heard, and considered and treated politely in return.

    We have so much to discuss these days, and so much more to enjoy in the coming years! It is so very exciting -- maybe the best time ever to be a Star Wars fan!

    So let's lead by example, each of us doing our best to keep the dialogue informative and pleasant, agreeing to disagree whenever it does come to that, but always with a view towards making Star Wars fandom the most positive and enjoyable thing it could possibly be.

    May the Force be with all of us always.

    Excellent post my friend. If I can add my two cents I would like to say that we should all be respectful about the theories of others and if we want to debate with them then that's fine but there have been people here who can't seem to be able to get their point across if it's not insulting others or just being rude. Even if my theory is crazy, that doesn't give anyone the right to badmouth me just so that they can try to prove that their theory (which is sometimes even crazier) is the correct one. How can I say ''I think Rey is the daughter of Greedo'' and then this random person is going to say ''You are ridiculous. That's the stupidest theory ever. Do you even have a brain? TFA makes it perfectly clear that Rey is the daughter of Hammerhead so shut up and don't talk S#%! if you don't know anything.'' These people think that by cursing and accusing your intellect they can prove their point but that is totally wrong. There are others who have a disagreement with you on one post and then they troll all your other posts so that they can always go against what you say or give you negative quotes. We have to be better than this guys! We can debate, come to understandings and even disagree with each other on certain things but that doesn't have to get out of hand and we can keep it friendly. We are all here because we love SW and as the OP said, we can become a great big SW loving family if we treat each other with respect.

    Being new, I'm still figuring things out here. How do I "like" a post? Do I have to have 30 posts before I can?

    And FYI, it may take a bit of time for it to "register" that you have 30 posts and let you rate stuff. It did for me. Don't panic, though. Give it half an hour and you'll be good.
