I said this at that other site, that I won't metion by name anymore....

Looking good!!!

First things first drink some of the Doctor Pepper....  But not all of it, since it was on the house it be a nice gesture but you do want your wits about you.

Ignore the Twi-lek, if that's who she hangs out with everyday and she doesn't want help that it's her fault.

As for the bartender's offer. I'd tell her I wasn't quite ready to move in with her yet, but thanks her for her generosity, and tell her you like to look for your Uncle so more. You could give her your comm link number and ask her for hers. (Do commlinks have numbers?  Maybe some are like cell phones and others are like 2 way radios) Tell her you'd like to get to know her better and that you'd appreciate it if she found out anything about your Uncle. Blow her a kiss goodbye (or at least just tell her. ) And tell her you'll be by some time soon.

Then head down to where the girl wanted to meet you 15 minutes early, wearing the poncho or a change of clothes, hide in some alley way or alcove and check your blaster and the belt and have them ready under your poncho in case anything goes South.  Wait a minunte or two once she gets there to make sure she wasn't followed or it isn't a trap, then go see what she has to say.

I'm loving it so far I can't wait to see the next chapter!   ;D

Takes traffic to make traffic...  Customs here, customs there, it's all good but the point of the FFURG FForums Customizing Community is to bring all customizers together at a site maintained and moderated by customizers with separate sections for separate areas of customizing...

Do other sites have that? 

The problem is, the other site you're hinting at mainly I think CHEWIE, is that the people there want more eyes on their stuff rather than to hear honest criticism...  They don't want to hear a critique, but just to get a "Very Nice!" with every reply...

The only way the community and customizing will grow is if customizers try to be a tighter-knit group.  It doesn't mean a site's forums like here at Jedi Defender aren't good for discussion or showing off one's wares, but it doesn't help customizing any if everyone flocks to one forum at a collecting site just to "show off" their stuff...

Hell, half the time anyone makes a criticism "over yonder", it degenerates into a fight between people, or it simply goes unnoticed and never responded to because half the people there don't want to be told they're not perfect.

Sad, but true state of the hobby that FFURG is/was trying to remedy.

That's why I love FFURG, everyone there is a customizer and you can really get some good feedback. I had made a custom ship a while back and I posted it there and I got some really great suggestions on how to make it better, I took those suggestions to heart and I like the ship soo much more now. I think it has made me a better customizer, I definitely have some room for improvement but that's what FFURG is for.

When I used to post my customs at RS, I would only get like 8 replies, and almost all of them would be "cool" or "nice custom". It was uselss many of the people there posted only for  their own post count, not to actually help the other customizers. Most of them didn't even do any customizing, they would just come in because it was an easy way to bost their post count. Of course there were always a few good replies, and those would be from people who were also at FFURG.

When fellow customizers help you on your customs it really does give a great sense of community; something I've noticed other custom boards seem to be lacking, except in a few core members, that also happen to belong to FFURG.  And no one seems to have trouble taking criticsm, it is so much more enjoyable when we can discuss our mutual craft and not have to argue about who is the better customizer. I actually heard someone call Phruby jealous because he made a critque of and already great figure, (that would have made it a perfect  custom) I'm glad thre is a site like FFURG leading the customizining revolution!

Viva la FFURG! ;D

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Rebelscum Spam Mail? WTF???
« on: April 1, 2005, 06:50 AM »
I just asked him to remove my address from his servers, and the only response I got was "Done."

I figured he wouldn't need my address if I'm not going to be at RS anymore.

Better than what I got. I told him i wasn't going to whinning about my banning or anything and that I'd like my mail and ifo taken of their servers, He responded with a quote of Saying that chewie's ban was the last straw and I was coming here. He gave me some smart-ass comment like I've already heard enough whinning and called me stupid or something. So i don't even know if he took me off. ??? >:( I responded asking him if I was off or not, and I have yet to hear back.

I won't post my who list here but Including a plane ticket to C3 and my C3 4 day pass, I'm up to $439 for the year. That number is going to double by the end of the month, and once I get another job this summer it'll grow pretty quickly. ;)

Damn it Corran it was all your fault!!!!! ;) :)

No worries man, someone would have started that thread sooner or later, and it wasn't your fault that Philip was a jerk and can't answer an innocent question without thinking about a bit of precious money that might be taken out of his pocket. ::)

EDIT: Speaking of money... Philip should send about $500 my way....

Hi Lady Jaye, it's nice to see you over here and not just stuck in one place.   :)

I hope that nobody here is mad at me for getting reinstated there.  The only reason I wanted to be was to keep in touch with the customizers there.  I doubt I will ever post in another section there again.

JD.com is where it's at.  I hope we get some more members here.

 :P



Not at all. I was going to keep my account active for the same reason,  but I kinda burned that bridge ::)  And then I didn't care anymore, the people I wanted to keep in touch with either came here, I already have their e-mail, or they are at FFURG. So it doesn't really matter.

Oh and is there a name for the people that decide to start a friggin conversation in the bathroom?? WTF is that all about????

Oh and is there a name for those people that make cell phone calls in the bathroom??? Again while someone is in the stall

That is so annoying and incredibly akward! Why would you talk to someone on the phone on the toilet? What is you had an escapee or Watermelon? The person on the other end should have to hear you poop.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: 500th commemorative figure... Vader?
« on: March 31, 2005, 07:01 PM »
The figure is decent. The chamber is kinda lame. It is way to small it looks like the POTF2 globe thingy with the figures. And it's be nice if it had a top, that part is fairly critical to the cahmber, but I guess that'd probably add another $5 to the price ::)

As for it being the 500th I think they must not count repacks, which eliminates about a year of stuff and Perhaps they go by production # not release #.

That is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time! ;D Absolutely priceless!

I still can't believe everyone got the axe, why not only the people who supposedly broke a rule? Since when is being a member of any other forum a banible offense?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Child prodigy kills himself
« on: March 31, 2005, 05:44 PM »
I know this thread is a couple days old but that really sucks. This kid went to my school, Colorado State University. I didn't know him or anything but it was big news around here. It has been a bad year for CO universities this year. There was Samantha Spady (CSU) dying of Alcohol poisoning early this year, then some kid died in the CSU rec center pool over Thanksgiving, some other kid died from alcohol at CU, a CSU student died while car surffing, and then there's the whole Gary Barnett and Ward Churchill thing going right now (I'm not sure how well that is known nationally.) It is kinda depressing. The kid was supposedly really depressed and because he was so young he didn't have very many friends up here. It is really too bad.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What does your JD forum member name mean?
« on: March 31, 2005, 04:49 PM »
From Merrian-Webster Dictionary

Quote
Main Entry: cha·os
Pronunciation: 'kA-"äs
Function: noun
Etymology: Latin, from Greek -- more at GUM
1 obsolete : CHASM, ABYSS
2 a often capitalized : a state of things in which chance is supreme; especially : the confused unorganized state of primordial matter before the creation of distinct forms -- compare COSMOS b : the inherent unpredictability in the behavior of a natural system (as the atmosphere, boiling water, or the beating heart)
3 a : a state of utter confusion b : a confused mass or mixture <a chaos of television antennas>

I used to always play as Chaos when I played lazer tag and since those days are long gone, I  use it in video games. '

The Sith are bad-ass so it just kinda came together like that and it has stuck.
