Over the years we have slowly streamlined the Boba Fett forums found in this site. If I recall correctly, we originally had 7 or 8 forums just for Boba Fett, but we have slowly combined the less active forums, grouping those items together and condensing the content. We are preparing to do this again!
What has prompted this move? Several factors have come into play; primarily the realization that while we have forums for different parts of Boba Fett's costume, we dont' have a forum for Boba Fett as a whole. Threads regarding Boba Fett's complete costume usually end up being posted in the Sarlacc Pitt because members do not know where else to post them. We would like to correct that problem by creating a general Boba Fett forum. However, we do not simply want to add another forum as we have worked very hard to keep TDH from becoming an unwieldy beast with dozens of forums in it. With that in mind, our current plan is to create a General Boba Fett Forum and merge the Jet Pack, Blaster, and Shin tools forum into is, and possibly also merge the Soft Parts forum into it as well. Looking at statistics, we believe Helmet and Armor are still popular enough to stand on their own (we are NOT prepared to merge all of the Boba Fett topics into a single forum at this point).
In addition, we feel that as the Wiki becomes more populated with information, the forums themselves will be less important and will be able to be more condensed.
It is unusual for us to announce something like this before we have completely decided how we want to implement it, but we are doing so for two reasons:
1) So you, our members won't be surprised when the change comes.
2) So you can give your thoughts and input on this change.
As always, we will ultimately make the final decision on what is to be done, but we would like to hear your thoughts on the matter.
Some may feel that this is a bad move simply because we are not giving Boba Fett the dominating position he once held here at TDH. This is not entirely true. TDH will always be first and foremost about Boba Fett and we expect to have a huge injection of Boba Fett interest thanks to Fett's expected inclusion in the upcoming live action series. However, we are growing and spreading our wings a bit and this means we do have to make room for other interests, such as the Expanded Universe Bounty Hunters and the Star Wars Characters forums, both of which have been a huge success!
