New Title

Hanging chads notwithstanding, the votes have been counted, and by an overwhelming majority of 17 to 4, "Star Wars: Unplugged" has been chosen as this blog's new title.

Of course, maybe the big letters at the top spelling "Star Wars: Unplugged" may have given that away already.

Anyway, just to keep some other little group of geeks from getting it, I've secured the blogger url "". That in itself doesn't change anything regarding this blog. It still resides at the old url (which is obvious since that's the way you got here). However, I have that new url re-directing to this one.

All of this took some time, considering the commercial breaks on the Sci-Fi channel don't seem to last very long. I've got to remember not to schedule these things when Battlestar Galactica is on!

A note regarding Survivor Tatooine. It seems almost half of the Ooteeni tribe voted for Han Solo this time. If this was a result of this week's storyline, that result was unintended.

I would not presume to attempt to dictate to anyone regarding who should be voted for. That's up to each of you individually. However, I would like to make the case for not making that decision based on which character screwed up in the storyline. If we start voting based on that, then creativity will be hampered when we are collaborating on each week's plot.

Those of you who don't frequent the forum wouldn't know this, but the story of how the Ooteeni tribe lost was the result of collaboration on the part of about four tribe members (including Han/Phoenix) and then written very well by Anakin/Diena. Imagine if every time the vote comes around, we vote off the character who messed up in that week's challenge. Then no one would allow their character to mess up! If no character messes up, then how is a team supposed to lose? I suppose both teams could always do a great job, and the team that did the greater job would win. But that wouldn't be that funny or interesting, would it?

Again, I'm not trying to tell anyone how to vote. Some people do the eeny, miney, moe thing. Some take other factors into consideration. Any way you vote is fine. I just humbly ask that you think about what I said above.

Paul Harvey.............................................good day!

The Eeny Meeny Miney Mo thing is leading to great stuff for Jar Jar's blog. I'm glad I did it.

Typho/Michelle said this in the forum- “…I'll vote so as to retain the people who are furthering the storyline the best.”
Since this is 75% a creative writing platform and 25% roll playing/strategy game, the way to play it will be quite a bit different than the actual Survivor game.
-That perhaps the strongest people you want to keep are those players who participate and add stuff to the story. The characters will mess up from time to time…that’s the best part to read!
Now this may change a little as we get down to a handful of players, if everyone is a strong participant, choosing then may be a little tough. But I also don’t want to dictate who votes how. The number one reason to do this was for all of us to get together and have fun. No one should take it too personally if they are voted for (or off). Fourteen other people will be in the same boat as you anyway.
Plus when we merge, those people voted off will have a say for who the final winner will be.
You guys are doing an awesome.

Woot for the Unplugged!

See, I'm stupid cause I thought we were supposed to vote how our characters would vote. *headdesk*

I think that would be an understandable assumption. That's one of the reasons I wanted to sort of try to bring some clarity to the whole voting thing.
