[Poll] Should FBTB Go Back To Covering Star Wars?

Title says it all. I'm interested in hearing your opinion on this matter. We understand that there is a small minority voicing displeasure in the new direction FBTB has taken. So please cast your vote in this poll and let your opinion be heard. We will take all comments under advisement.

Please keep it civil. Even though we've changed themes, the basic policies of this community are still in place. I had to warn a user for inappropriate language so think before you type. Thank you.

I know it's for real, ;) but I don't really like the new theme. It's not very good actually. Star Wars! I do like the rock monster, though... and the avatars.

No I'm sorry but SW has a larger fanbase, and 2009 looks awefully promising....

Just because American Idol has a large fan base doesn't mean we should pander to them, should we? ;) (I hope I didn't just give Ry any clever ideas...)

... and the background, plus greens my favorite color. I still want LEGO Star Wars!

I'd say go back with Star Wars. After all, LEGO Star Wars is the reason most of us - if not all - originally joined FBTB.

And I haven't got any PM sets, darn it! ;)

I think we should systematically ban every member of the forum who does not own a Power Miners set. Starting with Galagoo.

Galagoo, we came for the LSW, we stayed for the community.

I own THREE whole PM sets. How cool am I? XD

Good point Galagoo, I joined for the SW, I had it for a while, and now its gone....

FBTB switching to PM is like Ferrari switching to disposable razors, why fix something if its not broken?

P.S. I have yet to get a PM set.....

I don't own a single Power Miners set. I need to buy one.

Can't argue with the facts, Power Miners is the better theme.

Okay! Truth betold, I love Star Wars, but Ry is standing over me. Now he is reading what I just typed. Now he is reaching over to me with his hands, and it looks like he is about to slam my face into my keyboarvjbs biifnb jbhbk jrhuaehb mv jd averbhynjjh

I think in all honesty it should stick with Star Wars. Now, I can't truly compare with before and after the changeover from the start of the year, but from what I understand, before then, most non-SW Lego talk was discouraged, but now, all Lego talk is open (in its own forum) and Star Wars talk is allowed in the LSW section. I only recently got back into Lego, and it was Star Wars that did it for me, so I liked it the way it was. Since I'm also a Star Wars fan, I felt that there were enough topics to discuss to keep it worth checking in daily. I don't really care to go join another forum like Rebelscum.com or theforce.net for Star Wars news and talk, especially since I just don't have the time or desire to get deep into Expanded Universe stuff right now. And Let's be honest, for the most part, Lego news comes in spurts with the set waves.

On the flip-side, Star Wars got me back into Lego as a whole, and I like the new color scheme. While I can't help but think the change is still pretty tongue-in-cheek (mostly because I don't think that there's yet enough PM stuff to support a vibrant community) I like variety. Back in my younger days, I NEVER purchased anything that wasn't Space, or when I got a bit older, I threw some Technic and Model Team in with it. Now, I find myself interested in literally every single theme. Heck, last night I checked out some Paradisa sets, just to look at them. My point being, I think it would almost be fun if the theme of focus changed every month, at least for a little while, to expand horizons. Always keep a Star Wars forum around, because that's what the site's intent was. But maybe in May, do a Pirates building contest, then in June, Castle, or whatever.

So, in light of all of this, I'm choosing to not participate in the poll, as it's a little too black or white for how I feel about the subject.

Just my 7 cents... ;)

Well, I thought I had a really good response, and actually put forth a new suggestion, making my post worth an extra nickel. XD

I 100% prefered the Star Wars theme. I came here for Star Wars and that's what I want to keep coming here for. I thought this was a cruel April Fools joke yesterday and was hoping to come on today and find that the site was back to normal...though I do like the avatars....

Even though I'm not a huge fan of Power Miners (but what do I know, I haven't even gotten a set yet), I think a monthly/seasonal/yearly redesign like this would be nice, as long as we still discussed Star Wars. Star Wars has been our main focus for a while, and I feel we should still keep it in some prominence on the forums. However, a usual switch-over like this would be good in weeding out the people who come here for the SW rather than the discussion, and it would also broaden people's minds about the various themes.
