Due in part to Cracked.com's highlight of Star Wars:Revisited, Fanedit.org has received an influx of new members. We'd like to welcome you to our community and hope you enjoy your stay.
Because of this influx of new sign ins we've also had an increase in private messages being sent to faneditors with simple: "I want a copy of your edit. Send me the link." The editors here are generally friendly and gracious but this sort of PM not only wastes their time it comes off as rude. (It should be noted that some new users have been very friendly in their PM's, with detailed explanations of how they came about fanedits and what they're interested in. For your politeness we say thank you.)
The faneditors here have provided the members here with countless hours of entertainment sharing their work, and because of that we are protective of them. Without their hard work and dedication to the art of fanediting this site wouldn't exist. Unfortunately, the rudeness of several users has led us to implement a new rule: private messaging is only available to users with five posts or more in the forum. There are a few reasons for this:
- Your question can easily be answered if you took five minutes doing a search of the forums.
- We want to avoid the "ask and dash" syndrome. We are a community and we want people to participate on this site. This includes discussions in the forum as well as rating and reviewing fan edits. Registering to PM someone a question, and then never be heard from again does not serve this community in any way.
- You're wasting an editors time.
Again, a couple new users have been very friendly in the private messages but the "Give me the link" far outweigh those. We want to apologize to those that have taken the time to write well thought out PM's and want to encourage you to stick around and participate. We are (in general) a friendly bunch.
If you have any questions feel free to send the administrators an email using the Contact Us link at the bottom of the site, or you can PM an administrator or moderator.
