When is the staff coming back from their suspenison?
« on: July 21, 2004, 10:04 PM »
Browsing through one of the threads at RS about the E3 packaging I saw this posted: swcollector
"After posting unauthorized images of packaging mock-ups from Hasbro's Star Wars: Episode III toys, fan site JediDefender.com has been "suspended"! More on whether Hasbro and/or Lucasfilm get the site shut down permanently, as we hear it!"  
So when by Hasbro or Lucas Flim will you let the staff at JD be free to run thier site.  
Free Chirs Berry, Scott Pearson, Matt Coleman, Jesse James, Dale (DSJ), Thomas Grey, Nataku, jokabofe, and Angry Ewok.  



 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;)

Looks like they've run a correction:

Earlier today I reported that fan site JediDefender.com had been suspended after posting unauthorized images of packaging mock-ups from Hasbro's Star Wars: Episode III toys. Fortunately, I was wrong! Their server was down due to increased traffic!

lol People have such vivid imaginations.


Hmm, the website is down. No way it could be a problem on my end, or their end. CLEARLY, they've been shut down by the man...

Well now, when dealing with George Lucas, that isn't really all that far-fetched.

We posted Episode III packaging mockups last night, everyone in their mother linked to the story and our server coughed a lot all day and went down

Some dude posted a story saying that our site was wiped from the face of the earth by Hasbro and LFL.  Luckily, we're still kicking

Oh fess up, Berry is in shackles and being tortured as we speak.  I mean aside from his normal desire to have this happen.

Well, according to Durge, IT wiped out the website.  ::)

And General Windu could've done something, since "this site sucks because he doesn't like the look of the packaging".  ::)


Anyway, it's good to be back.  :)

George Lucas raped me in his own Abu Gharib prison.

Steven Speilberg pointed at me as they put a bag on my head and made me stand around nude.

Is this Freedom LFL?

IS IT!?

I guess nobody else caught the unfortunate misspelling in the thread title?

Wait a minute, that was supposed to say 'suspension'?

I thought they were just off at some big sausage party.

No, only Brad.

Personally, I was in the basement of the Lucas Ranch on a chain.... er.... wait..... I've been here the whole time.
