Don't get me started on TFN. They've been in the toilet in just about every way for a long time now. Let me see...
Cross-polinization with RS daily. Now you can read non-news about toys, too.
Unchecked rumors posted as fact, daily. They used to at least have enough "ins" to verify the rumors they posted. Now, for example, a news post proclaiming "Sellouts Expected on SW DVDs" based on a guy that sent an email in, saying he worked at an Australian Blockbuster. If they can't use some common sense in posting crap like this, what good are they for Ep3 stuff?
Yesterday they annoyed the HELL out of me by posting pictures from a Star Wars and Troops screening here in LA that happened on Tuesday. They never, to my knowledge, posted news about the event occuring... until about an hour before it took place. I could have seen Star Wars on Tuesday night.
How about some forums that make RS look mature and civilized?
And apparently they're on the outs with even the marketing folks at LFL...
According to our sources, Lucasfilm hosted a press day today for long lead publications like magazines and international papers. The focus of the day's events were to give them an exclusive preview of the Classic Star Wars Trilogy on DVD. The official 4-disc set debuts in September with online and short-lead having their preview sometime next month or early August.
That's funny, because several online sites (some even fairly minor ones) were invited to this event. No "sources" needed to find this out. Sorry guys, the "short-lead" folks were there too, not next month. You've been passed over.
What, oh WHAT, happened to the glory days of "The Star Wars Page at Texas A&M"
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
