hey guys! i don’t know the whole story, and i definitely don’t want to add fuel to the fire. however, i just wanted to say that before the leads were brought back, we all agreed the forum was declining and that bringing leads back could help. now that they’re back, we are still saying the forum is declining?
i get why the editing thing is frustrating, and sometimes i get a little annoyed with it too. but the leads are told what to do and how to be good role models, and they try to fulfill that to the best of their ability. so i don’t think we should bash the leaders, but maybe try to see where they are coming from. i don’t mean to offend anyone, everyone is entitled to their own opinion on this topic!

also im super late to the party, oops

edit: i just read a thing from fea about transparency & editing, i 100% understand it now :)))

Yes but actually no.
The people before that assigned leads were able to figure out their own problems but they did break a bunch of rules. The leads after seem to be doing a great job of solving problems but they also seem to be overreacting to some of the actions some people are taking. There needs to be balance, just like with the force.
As you can tell tipping the scales too far to either the dark (swag forum pre lead assignment thing) or the light (leads rn) can easily mess up the universe. Without balance, everything is ruined.
(Gonna go into sw more here for an example)
In the days of the Republic (not the old old republic but the one where there were Jedi and Palps), Jedi were very powerful and had pretty much 0 opposition. Perhaps they’d have to go protect some royalty on a planet where there was a small revolt or something. This made them very cocky. Which isn’t good because they became blind to their own mistakes and thought they couldn’t possibly ruin anything even though they did! Take it back further to the old old old republic aka the Sith empire with the Sith’ari or whatever and you got chaotic fighting and not good things but the re were also alliances and they controlled most the galaxy.
Do you see any connections to how the forum was working?
The Republic Jedi are basically your casual leads right now. The Imperial Sith were your forumers before the assigned leads.
We’re not going to talk about the old old republic times when there was sorta balance because that doesn’t help at all because overpopulation and contradicting ideas.
SO THERE NEEDS TO BE BALANCE
Thanks for coming to my swag showing of knowledge about both the forum and the star wars universe. #CardinalForever #CheckerButInXI #verysaddontbringitup

Do you especially agree with the swag star wars one? Because it’s the best. And relates to the forum.

Hey, I’m Healey’s original account, and I’d like to know how I can change my ridiculous username. The meme it is based on is dead.

Also, why can’t I edit my posts?

Anyway, @anon84583326 told me that it’s possible for me to change my username, but I have no idea how. Perhaps she’s just messing with me, but that seems unlikely.

Wow, this account is so old that I hadn’t even learned mentioning yet. Go figure.

You can ask Ana in the leaders q and a topic, also your trust level can’t edit posts, which isn’t fun

Figures. I didn’t use this account very long, back then.

Ironically, even though you say you’re nobody, you have to be somebody. Otherwise, I couldn’t possibly be talking to you.
