    Hi all! Long time Star Wars fan, I remember when Star Wars came out, I was a young teenager living in a country that I could drink in because I was tall enough. When Star Wars came out I saw it with English subtitles the first time. All the Star Wars merchandise was in Deutsche. Still wish I had some of it but I don't. The Empire Strikes Back was the first one I saw without subtitles when our family moved back to the USA.

    Fast forward to today and I'm still hooked but now I'm just a cranky old Star Wars/Star Trek Geek.


    Had this same question, saw this and the suggestion to log-off then log-on....did that and it still didn't work. Maybe it will tomorrow. Not a big deal, just wanting to spread the love some.

    @Darth Mapanggulo Welcome! In order to rate posts you need 30 posts....you still have a little ways to go. Even when you hit 30 it is not immediate, takes a bit.

    Just a question but are you a "military brat"?

    Hello everyone,

    Hope you are all having a good day.

    My name is Darth Mu. I am another exile from the Jedi Council Forums. For reasons. I was DARTH_MU on that site.
    Anyway, mostly I like to write fanfiction. Specifically Legend fanfiction. You can find me as Mu Tryles on fanfiction.net or as user 6000.
    My favourite character is Tahiri Veila. My least favourite character is Jaina Solo.

    I became a Star Wars fan when the VHS special edition was released. I saw ROTJ first. the ESB, and at last ANH, because everyone else rented the tapes before I got a chance to.

    I think the first book I read of SW may have been a few chapters of I, Jedi. Then I read Heir to the Jedi. Third book was Children of the Jedi. That is why I like Callista more as a companion for Luke than Mara.

    Of the New Canon. I like Ciena Ree and Doctor Chelli Lona Aphra.

    Just wondering, what exactly is the clouded rating supposed to mean? Incoherent?

    cloud
    klaʊd/
    verb
    past tense: clouded; past participle: clouded
    1. 1.
      (of the sky) become overcast or gloomy.
      "the blue skies clouded over abruptly"
      synonyms: become cloudy, cloud over, become overcast, become gloomy, grow dim, lour, blacken, darken, dim
      "the sky clouded"

    2. 2.
      make or become less clear or transparent.
      "blood pumped out, clouding the water"
      synonyms: make cloudy, make murky, dirty, darken, blacken

    So could be interpretated a couple of ways but none of which are a positive.

    it's typically used to imply that someone's thinking/expression lacks clarity.

    there's a video on YouTube in which the vlogger goes on a rant because he says Rey killed Snoke without using a Force hand gesture and therefore the whole throne room scene in TLJ "makes no sense" (because he clearly didn't notice that it was Ben who did it ~ even using a hand gesture).

    if that guy had vented his fury here, he'd likely get a clouded rating from someone for not knowing what the heck he's talking about.

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Beau, i'm 23 years old and I come from Belgium, where I live in Tongeren (the oldest city in Belgium). I love Star Wars and I am a huge movie/television/theater fan.

    I first saw SW on Belgian television as a child, and felt immediatly in love with it. My favorite SW movie is ESB.

    Hello, laamis here, been loving star wars all my life, can't even remember a time when i wasn't into star wars. I'm only 34 so i was born just a bit after the original trilogy but well before the prequels. From finland, into fantasy/sci-fi in general as well.
    Just wandered here after wanting to read and talk about the new movies and possible rumours about EPIX.

    @laamis Welcome! Star Wars all the way up in Finland, awesome! That rates your first "Lando" i.e. "cool" rating! As I have said before here, SW transcends all, I think you'll find a great group of dedicated fans here. Take care....we'll keep a seat open for you here in the Cantina....
