    Can we get a Fan Film forum under the Fandom section. It would be cool for the members to show off their film making skills there and give tips for editing video or doing special effects there.

    It would seem to me that any fan film forum itself could have subsections. For instance, one for video editing, one for 3D CG, one for building traditional practical models, one for costumes, one for building sets, etc.

    This was actually something I sort of talked about with Viral Hide as he was setting up the forum. We ultimately decided that an all-encompassing "Fanmade Content" board would work for the best. Feel free to post anything related to fan films there.

    If there are forums for REBELS and The Clone Wars, then perhaps forums for the 2D animated 2003(?) Clone Wars series, Droids, Ewoks, the two TV Ewok movies, and the Holiday Special could be made too. While opinions and reviews are mixed on these, they do provide for some stimulating conversation sometimes, even the Holiday Special which does contain a good amount of excised Episode IV material.

    I wonder if the old EU (legends?) and the new cannon EU could each be given their own forums as well.

    Yes, we were thinking about this too. It's tricky, many people are confused what was and what will be canon. We'll think about it a little more.

    In the Fanmade Content branche we surely could use a "Fanfiction" or " Rewrite" section for those who want to express themselfs and write about their concepts, ideas and stories. Do we need special rules for those? Does this idea makes sense?

    That's an interesting idea that we may consider. However, what do you mean by "Fanfiction or re-writes?" We have a large domain here but we can't be posting scripts or anything . . . unless you mean links to websites with scripts or something.

    That could do it. My intention was to give some members that think that their creative ideas or concepts are interesting and ready to be red by some of us. They could link their "Fictions" here too and we just rate it here. Just an idea...because I know some Star Wars forums that give the people a chance to do so. If this actually works here is a thing of the future. I don´t expect this to be a big thing or important but a chance.

    You should have an option to have the Cantina music of ep4 on or off. It would be less boring in here if their was music. (but only Star Wars music!)

    I like that idea. Perhaps we can incorporate that in the future. Thanks for the suggestion!

    But I warn you not to mess with the I.P.C (Imperial Peace Corps) or your hunk of junk will be used to reinforce the hull of my Star Destroyer.(star destroyer):D

    I think I'm a bit confused myself. For instance I'm not sure where the West End Games and other role playing material is ending up, but I've read that some of it is making its way into shows/movies.

    How about installing a little game something like a chess game where one person can be Han and the other Greedo and they fight it out in the Cantina.

    That's an interesting idea and something similar to what we're thinking for the future. More development is needed first though. And we have some other ideas in mind as well.
