Official Site closing its Message Board
#1
I thought it was an April Fool's joke at first, but apparently it's true: http://forums.starwars.com/ann.jspa?annID=3

This came as a surprise to me, since that board has been around since 2001 and seems pretty active still.

Never was a member there, but I'm kind of surprised too. I always expected there to some kind of official message board.

I was registered but never posted. The site's design was horrid (vomit green). Yucky

I was registered but never posted either. Personally, I found the boards to be slow and poorly designed. Not to mention it lacked basic features I'd expect to find on a message board (stuff like polling, PMs, thread subscriptions, etc.).

I too was registered and made a few posts, but I never really visited there. Probably due to the constant Java errors and the daily 503 errors.

To be honest, I've never visited there (I think I have an account, can't remember). Still, I'm having trouble believing this considering the date it was posted on. Sure this isn't some kind of joke?

EDIT: Oh wait, I just checked my email and I am registered there.

The Star Wars official site was the first I ever joined. Guess it will be missed. Mellow

Still love their Yoda emoticons. Yes

Kind of surprised to be honest but probably inevitable. The site was losing traffic ever since the movies were finished. Not to mention the design looked bad and old.

Looks like it was true, the official site forums have been off since the 3rd. Never liked the forums anyway, poor design and rather rude membership.

Can the yoda smiles be added here by chance?

I'll second that, those Yodas are cool. The avatar galleries would also be nice.

EDIT: Can the yodacons be moved up on the Smilies Popup?

I've moved them up to the top, and added some to the clickable box. Yoda-grin

good riddence, that board was made up of nasty members who always bitched about threads being reduntant anyway.
