Reacting to My Star Wars Forum Posts from 2005...CRINGE

Last night I randomly went on an old forum I used to spend my teenage life on. I met a lot of great friends, some even whom I still talk to weekly. I thought it'd be fun to share what conversations Star Wars fans, including myself, were having back in those days. If you'd like for me to make more of these videos, let me know and I would be happy to go through some funny posts. There's a ton the pic in the thumbnail...that's for another video if you so wish...

Continue the conversation on the Theory forums!

    While it's a blast to the cringe past for me, I think it's interesting to see what Star Wars fans were saying back then, as well. Would you like me to make this into a mini series?

      THIS IS AMAZING! Dude it looks Like The Time When I was growing up Things were WAY More Fun hahaha Though I guess I saw my life as Over around age 14 soooo My Highschool Memories are A LOT messier than most Peoples.... But LORDY Do I love when Some ALpastrs Do this Time Travel Flashback Video stuff making fun of their younger selves Not realising how Much What others are saying are Meaningfully True or Untrue in WHATEVER Context... And I'd Watch HOURS of my Dude Randy Troy talking On "Stuff we used to Write up on Arlong Park online about What was happening in the Manga and Anime before the 4Kids bad Dubs Even Ended...." or whatever he would Bring up like theories that PROVE TO BE TRUE 15-20 years Later..... But THATS Manga Stuff Would I ALSO Watch HOURS Of My Dude @Star Wars Theory talking "OLD SCHOOL STAR WARS THEORY Before He WAS Star Wars Theory" the 6 Hour Movie of A Highly Edited Vid from I dunno if it could be Twitch or ALpast or Discord Conversations or WHATEVER Recorded and Shared so We CAN Hear New and Old Takes on OLD THEORIES AND IDEAS....... What If you Look at Clone Wars and Rebels Releases and HOW This COMMUNITY In the Forums Continued Evolving as A FEW of these People From Either the OFFICIAL EMPLOYEES that are Fans AND the SUPER FANS Theorising Wildly around whatever Silly Rumour their friend at school just MADE UP to get them to embarrass themselves online or WHATEVER...... PLEASE MAKE THIS A SERIES!!!!!!!! You and Your Mates LOOK at WHAT your YOUNGER SELVES May have Said at SOME POINT That You either Disagree OR Agree with and the Context of That Time's Current Perception with "Easier Teenage Life Anecdotes of Wishing you had a GF and Anakin's Sabre, Etc. and Needing THEM To Tell you what EU Means When F*** You'd Get Called a bleedin "BOOMER" over than Now PROBABLY!!!! Hahhahaha Man F*** the world government man.... But thats a WHOLE Other Conversation no one wants to hear My Rambles about whichever Things TURNED OUT WAY WORSE Than whatever A Paranoid Alex Jones COnspiracy Theory from 15 Years ago EVEN BELIEVED COULD BE POSSIBLE... because of Course these People calling themselves "Globalists" While Forming a Secret UNWHO RULING Technocratic Medically UNPRINCIPLED "InterNazi World Government" or WHATEVER the Hell has Been going on with the Magical Bioweaponised Viral stuff with 5G radiation weapons and People getting Vaccines that To BE Given Require Signing that If You Die in 2 Weeks of Any of their Injections its COUNTED as a "Covid Death" which I dont EVEN NEED TO Bring Up Why That MIGHT Cause PROBLEMS For People Being Told "The Facts" from Channels Purporting to Provide "The News" or whatever they Call PsyOps Tactics Influenced Grand Deceptions for the Systematic TakeOver of Human Civilisation Using all out Technological Advancements to Ensure that They RULE OVER ALL USING Such Devices, Of Course....

      If anyone wants to persuade their friends to watch star wars like I do, I’ve just created an Introductory Star Wars Hype Trailer for this very reason. I’m sure they’ll want to watch every movie and show once they’ve seen it 💯 we all have a friend that we wish watched Star Wars so I hope it does the job.

    Forums are still my preferred method of discussing things with people. It's just a shame everyone uses social media and Reddit (*pukes*) instead. But yeah, I still vividly remember the rumor back after ROTS came out, there was a supposed "interview" George did where he was supposedly talking about a sequel trilogy and that it wouldn't start releasing until 2020. I remember thinking to myself, "That's ridiculously long!" and I find it hilarious that the actual sequel trilogy released all three movies BEFORE 2020. Oh man, I loved that era almost as much as I love this one lol

    I was born in 94 and first really got onto the internet in like 2005 or 2006, but I do remember things being really good online until about 2014-ish, or 2015. Then things became more tribalistic. I think a lot of it is just general asocial people in real life who take out their underlying feelings online these days. In the early 2000s it was just a lot of very separated groups, like, if you liked Star Wars you were on Star Wars forums and pretty much no where else. People kind of found their niche. Now that ALpast is so massive and everyone is on social media it's different, we're all thrown together.

    At the mention of MSN I just remembered a large chunk of my teen years spent talking to so many friends on that, thanks for that SWT. MSN and Yahoo Messenger were the mainstream go to IMs. There were older and shadier IMs from memory if we go back even further, but I can't say I know much about those ones personally I'm only aware of the even older ones though because my old man used to frequent them. The internet was indeed a lot more different back then. Less people trying to push their views on eachother and mostly people banding together and enjoying hobbies together in their own little niches/groups. It was a time of learning together, sharing our knowledge and finding out what the internet was even capable of.

    This is pure gold and so relatable. I was around 15 years old myself when The Old Republic MMO released and almost all of my friends at the time were from the roleplaying guilds I met on there. I barely played the actual game itself I spent so much time roleplaying and writing fanfiction for our characters. Going back to those forums and reading my old posts is just as cringe inducing, yet strangely insightful into my young mind at the time. I subconsciously put all of my daddy issues into those characters, and what a rollercoaster it is to go back to them now haha. Thanks for posting this and I'd love to see more. As always, you're the man Theory!

    I remember watching ROTS on dvd back in 2005 in the uk. I was 7 years old. I didnt really get the deeper plot because of my age but holy crap I loved the action scenes and found the anakin turning bad quite sad and tragic. Would watch it every night before bed and understood the plot better everytime I watched it. Its definitely one of the best and most important star wars movies and that's my personal opinion that I'm sure alot can agree with.

    I think the prequels have garnered more positive attention since the mid-2000s. The Clone Wars made strides in changing that perception in my eyes. On top of that, I feel some fans just didn't understand what George was trying to portray if I remember the largest complaints correctly. Now that people better understand who those characters were, I feel some of the disdain has subsided. Just my two cents...

All the kids grew up who loved the movies and now dominate the fandom on the net . He was lucky to be on a forum that was ok , but man you can find a whole fuckton of discourse and starwars ruined things, southpark made a damn episode when it was BIG about lucas raping starwars lol
