What's happening here at MF.com?

It appears that a silent second exodus is occurring (the first of which took place in 2005 following a dramatic purging of a certain clique's user accounts). I won't name names or spill any details (not that I really know or have any) but I will say that this second flight of a sizable group of members from this once brimming and mighty forum, lately characterized by long stretches of inactivity and overzealous diatribe against Disney/LFL, is perfectly understandable given the forum's state and the state of online Star Wars "fandom" in recent time. But is this just a second exodus or something more existentially fateful to MF.com as we know it? Have the more active members and notable personalities of MF.com banded together to leave this archaic but open space to die an eventual 404 death in order to carry on the MF brand in a more mobile-friendly and exclusive arena? Unfortunately, I suspect the latter.

In any case, I will carry on in this now more quiet sanctuary, as doomed as it might be, and continue to post newsworthy items as they break or simply provide my usually brief commentary if someone else gets to it first. And hopefully enjoy a bit of discussion too. I suppose it's now up to me and those who remain to try to breathe what life we can back into this forum given these latest developments. I don't mind. I'll think of myself as one of those caretakers on Ahch-To. Helping to maintain grounds I've considered special and dare I say hallowed for nearly 15 years and 1,121 posts until the end may come.

Now, who else is stickin' around this enchanting old ruin with me? Let's have a MotherFuckin' roll call! :metal:

It would be nice if this forum was more consistently busy, but I do prefer this over :gb2tfn: where it's so strict that even the slightest aside or funny comment is deleted almost immediately. I think I once responded to someone there with "that's what she said," and was sent to the dog house. Really anal, stupid and not fun.

And I love the MF emoticons. :goomf: :funkywhatevaho: :lolbutts: :bunnys:

Still here after all of the change. Disney Star Wars is depressing but the run-up to the prequels is an unforgettable time.

I prefer smaller communities like MF. Posts tend to be more intelligible and more conducive to actual discussion when you have a smaller group of the same people. You can write a well thought out post and not have it be lost among fifty pages of "Best movie ever" or "It sucked, it's the worst thing that ever happened to me" type of posts. I'm with MF till the end of the line.

For some time I could not succesfully log in and tried contact administrator but no luck then one day it was all working again.

Have been trying to be more active where I can.

As you can see by my register date, I was one of the first to sign up when DP finally had enough of TFN's bullshit and made his own forum. Fall 2003 was prime ROTS spoiler season and it was a wonderful time. I found the ROTS Incredible Cross Sections book before its street date and was able to share some scans with this fine forum.

I still find the post-to-intelligence quotient here strong enough that I enjoy popping in to see what new comments are made several times a week. I think everyone here as pretty good respect for one another, and unpopular opinions are welcome and appreciated. I know in my stance of unconditional love for everything Lucas did, I don't find myself subject to the same asshole nonsense I might elsewhere, and for that, I respect and enjoy this place and the people in it.

I first signed up with :gb2tfn: when the AOTC title was announced in August 2001. I was over there the night the rumors of N'Sync appearing in the film hit, and my God, what a goddamn bloodbath. But when DP opened up the doors here, I jumped at the chance to be a part of the community. Still enjoy it today. I do wish it was busier sometimes, and I do wish we had spoiler sources like we did in the prequel era.

And I can't write this post without a shoutout to forum user Raveers, who provided us with some amazing soundtrack releases, especially of AOTC and ROTS as well as the Matrix trilogy and other terrific scores that have never seen a full release. Cryostar also deserves a mention for posting PDFs of the first batches of Marvel comics after it picked up the Star Wars license.

All in all, MF.com has been awesome and I'll be here until they turn out the lights for good.

Thanks for chiming in, all!

I no longer sense a plot to abandon MF.com. I may have jumped the gun a bit with my initial suspicions. :oops:

It's just not a fun time to be a Star Wars fan.

The new cartoon Star Wars: Resistance looks horrid.
A lot of Marvel stuff is junk.
If I hear the name Thrawn one more time, I am going to run amok.
What the f--k does Jon Favreau know about Star Wars? That project is already done.
The Last Jedi was f---ing garbage.
Solo tanked. I haven't seen it yet. After TLJ, I refuse to give Disney my money.
Kennedy needs to be fired.
Johnson's project needs to be cancelled immediately. For cryin' out loud Disney, take the hint.
I'd say that serious people need to be brought in, but after the Kasdan's stated than Lando was... uh... pansexual, I'm even starting to wonder about those that once had the faith of the fans.

I know I am late to this party. But I did want to say THANK YOU to the mods for providing this forum. It is a welcome refuge with generally intelligent and considerate discussions. Long live MF.

I think darthpsychotic performed a quiet quality-control pass recently. New and re-organized subforums at the top of the main page!

I am still here. I don't post much. I just keep my head down most of the time. Been around since the beginning, but not as a member. Maybe it is because we are getting older. I am pushing 50 now. I just don't have so much energy for Star Wars anymore. I never thought I would get there, but there has been so much negativity lately and what new Star Wars we do get hasn't made me really excited. I am looking forward to the new live-action shows, but I am not excited for them. At least not yet.

It's quite telling that there was no public comment from Lucas about Solo: A Star Wars Story.

My own tepid reception of that film was a turning point in my fandom. I still check these forums almost daily, keep up with major news breaks and I'm amped for Episode IX like a virgin on their honeymoon. But my enthusiasm and even obsessiveness toward the moving image side of the property (beyond IX) has definitely cooled over the past year. I'm not too excited about the two live-action series and I haven't even seen more than that first hour-long episode of Resistance.

Who have I become? :what:

I'm aware of the support and time on set. But he phoned Edwards about Rogue One and had a spokesperson comment on The Last Jedi. Both around the time of release.

Nothing like that for Solo.

Maybe it was unnecessary, though. Lucas knowing Howard and all.

I presume that Lucas is enjoying his retirement. He doesn't have to comment on anything if he doesn't want to.

True.

Man, I'd kill to see the films he's making on his own now. The ones he's said in countless interviews that are only for himself and his friends.

And forget Galaxy's Edge. Sign me up for The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art coming to LA in 2021! :bounce:

Still a MF visitor, still a Star Wars fan. I enjoyed the new Disney output. Nothing will "ruin" Star Wars for me. That's a choice.
