    October 30th is a day that all but the newest of Star Wars fans will have permanently ingrained in their minds. It was on this day just 4 short years ago that it was announced that Disney would be purchasing Lucasfilm and kicking off a new era of unprecedented Star Wars output. But to those of us here at SWNN it has additional meaning. It is our birthday.







    That’s right! SWNN was born the same day that the mouse house stuck its toe into the waters of the Galaxy far, far, away. We’ve come a long way in those four years. We started as the small, off the map, Star Wars 7 News. A site that was dedicated to bringing our readers all the news that could be found around the 7th episode in the Star Wars saga.



    Since that special day we have grown into a community of thousands of fans all looking to read, consume, and discuss all things Star Wars. So, to show you just how much we appreciate the community that has joined us in the last four years, for our birthday we will be turning the attention back to you, the readers.



    [​IMG]



    Of course we have some giveaways for a few lucky readers. But we’ll also be turning to you for some discussion about what you’d like to see from SWNN as we move deeper into the new era of Star Wars. What sort of content would you like to see from the blog? What are we doing now (or have done in the past) that you’d like to see more of? What could we be doing better? What would you like to see added to The Cantina to facilitate more of those great Star Wars conversations that bring us here day in and day out?



    You are the reason we exist, so we want to know what you want. You just have to sign in to the form below and have at it in the comments and let us know what you’d like to see from SWNN next and keep reading below for a brief information of the prizes that you might win. This contest is worldwide.


    Star Wars Prints and Posters Giveaway!



    Here's a brief info on the prizes that you could win. The prizes were picked by us. We've tried to choose the most interesting and popular items that have been (or will be) recently released.

    [*]Star Wars: Rogue One Imperial Death Trooper Voice Changer Mask.
    [*]Star Wars: Rebels Sabine Wren figure (3.75 inch).

    Note: This is a regular competition that we run on the main site. You don't have to pay Cantina credits to enter it. Just comment on the question we asked in the blog comments.

    In 2 weeks we will have a special competition only for The Cantina and it will be connected to TFA 3D Blu-ray release. :)

    im jsut curious, but was it a coincidence that you started the forum on the same day? also, it would be cool to have some sort of a live messaging feed on the forums where users can talk to other users privately while commenting on forums at the same time besides simple messages. The site is pretty user friendly but also simple stuff should be fixed such as the chrome thing (if possible !) and a better response rate from staff members if a user has ant questions regarding potential bans, unwarranted ratings, etc. over all, i appreciate the forums though, has taken me through tough times. It's funny: I used to joke about how, even though im the biggest star wars fan around, id never join a forum, but i never imagined how much it would help with my psyche with all of the sith ive been going through on a personal and a professional level.

    Birthday salutations SWNN! I may have been later to the party than some and nothing like as prolific on the posting front - but generally speaking I'm here every day as this is my go-to site for all things SW. Great site, great people and a Mod-Squad who are involved, but not to a level of interference or unnecessary censoring, which is both surprising and welcome in forums these days.

    Not much to be added by way of improvement that's not already been said - keep up the good work folks! MTFBWY (obi-wan ghost)

    I have been coming to this site for news for years and cannot believe that 4 years have flown by. I enjoy the way you deliver your content.

    Here's to many more years to come!

    I also love your comic reviews. As a reader of the marvel comics I find your observations to be right on.
