First...

Well, Jesse and Chewie have both tried to get me over here so, here I am.   :P

With RS down for a while I'll need to get my fix somewhere and if I can do that without endless posts of crap in the modern sections I may just stay!


   E...

Holy ****, you're here Eric! :)

Big E's a memeber of the PSWCS, and a buddy of mine.  Also was my line buddy at Celebration 3 (along with Jeff and Jason), where I was pretty much flew solo during the event for 90% of my time at it.  Me and E cashed in our badges for our store goodies together.

Good times man!  You gotta get out to Western PA sometime bud.  Glad to have you aboard finally.

Second...

If anything we've worked against increases in traffic at our site considering we like to "weed out" the people who are here to just be peckerheads.  And they do show up...  Some of them are the people that some of us have had issues with elsewhere, some are just post-padding morons that fit in better at Rebelscum since there's many of their ilk to compete with...  But either way we don't just let them play their game, they get das boot.  Sure they could increase traffic, but why let them drag our home down?  **** that, and **** them.

Third...

Creature Cantina.com sucks.  Sorry Bill.  You've known this.

I haven't heard the word "peckerhead" in years, I think I forgot about it.  I must now endeavor to use it more often.

And yes, C3 was a blast and it was great hanging out with you in line. 

I should get down to Pitt more often.  Every time one of the comicons or toy shows get announced I think about running down for it but I haven't done it yet.  I'll have to try harder!

Does anyone go to TFN anymore?  Honestly, I've been to that site maybe twice since PW took it over and overhauled the entire thing.  I think it's ugly and hard to read.  It used to be my number 1 stop for SW news that didn't relate to collecting.  Now, worthless.

I used to post on the GH forums but found that the RS forums were a little more active so I stuck there.  But GH is one of my first stops for collecting news every day.

P.S.  Welcome to JD finally, efranks!  BTW, we'll need a "real world" name for you though, since this is first name territory 'round here.  Good to see Greg's butt back over here too!  One of the few original JD invitees that didn't stick around as much as we'd hoped...  ;)

  Ah, my name is Eric Franks.  I forgot to put that in my sig.  I'll update that in a couple minutes.

Interesting take, JediMAC, and I agree with the "quality over quantity" point of view.

There have been several times when newbies on RS have come into a thread, posted a bunch of crap in answer to a question and gotten snotty when called out as being wrong.  And they always point to their 2,000 posts in a month as why they aren't "newbies" and why they "know" the answers to everything.  I'd rather take the advise of someone intelligent with 50 posts in 3 years than some dickhead with 5,000 posts in 3 months...but that post count seems to be the only important thing on RS anymore.

The other thing that I dislike about RS.com is how forum members were yelling "fake" and "rumor" when GalacticHunter was breaking news on Hasbro releases for this fall.  Their argument was how could they be real because RS.com hadn't broken the news or posted on it yet.  Well, the answer is simple, I don't think RS.com really has anyone "in the know" that posts news to the front page.  Curto may be the exception, but I'll take info from Adam, Mike, Pawlus and the "Swami" over most anything RS.com posts.  And have you ever read any of the answers in the Question Mark column?  I think a prerequisite for doing a Q&A section should be someone that at least dabbles in the hobby they're writing about...

There are a lot of things I don't like about that site but they have very active forums, the vintage section is incredible and the area reports sections are great.  The checklists and photo gallery isn't bad either.  And even though the modern boards are full of a lot of tools, sometimes it's fun picking on them just to piss them off.

   E...   (who could be pissing of RS.com members lurking here...but doesn't care)
