If I could ask for anything it would be for the forums to delete the individual trilogis posts and maybe focus on "Movie Costumes" and "Costumes from other sources" for the SW section.

With todays world we have so many sources of costumes that the movies is much more limited portion of SW than it used to be and many of those has rather simular costume types anyway (Aka the Stormtroopers is simular in all trilogies and most games etc, and the so are X Wing pilots and Jedi to take a few examples.)

I get what you mean but maybe the problem is not so much the sub-forums but more their names. My idea when I created the separate sections was that all costumes that fit into the time period TPM-ROTS would be handled in that section. If it's a costume from a film, the Clone Wars series, a book, a comic, an action figure or whatever should not matter. They all go in the prequels section.

Would it help if they were renamed to:
Prequel era
Original era (bad name, suggestions accepted)
Sequel era
Other eras

Or even how about:
Clone Wars era (need a better name there too but Old Republic feels too big)
Empire Era
First Order era
Other eras

What do you think?

You can also have:

Republic Era (Everything up to Clone Wars)
Empire Era (From the start of the empire to the fall of it)
First Order and New Republic Era (TFA and beyond)

That will pretty much sum up the whole Star Wars universe as its stands now.

I like the Prequel, Original and Sequel as names and sections and it is what is used on most detachment forums.
"Other" Is often named Extended Universe.

Is it this thread you are talking about?

Because there isn’t one. The biggest complaint from people was too many sections so we merged a few.

Access levels checked for the Norwegian section. They are correct.

If the post you mention was not a sticky or announcement then it has been automatically removed. The feedback I got was that we have too much old rubbish cluttering up the forum so people find it hard to find what they are looking for. We have therefore enabled pruning in many sections. Anything that is over a year old and not a sticky, announcement or vote will be removed automatically.
