I think the admins for LFNetwork were the admons of the sites that were combined toi form form the network. Each forum site had to have three or four admins. Some of them rarely log on, I think, but they can't exactly be "fired" or demoted, since they are the administrators.

We have alot of forums around, so we need lots of Admins. Not everyone can/does login and there has to be someone around to help anyone when it is needed

Not really sure, a lot of the forums were merged together years ago, LF may have been formed that way, in which case it'd be theadmins of the first few forums to merge in such a way. I'm not too knowledgable on that front, possibly one of the admins will be able to answer that for you.

LFNetwork was formed by several independant fan websites ... as far back as in 1997 I believe. In last quarter of 2001 (roughly) their forums were fused and LucasForums saw the day of light.

Many of these admins are not just admins for the forums, but takes care of the various websites dedicated to their related games from LucasArts.

Odd, I had thought that Aristotle was the big cheese admin around here.
Must have been a misunderstanding.

Soo.. Number 1. The conspiracy lives.

It say's webmaster under his occupation, so I guess you could say that, depends on the history though, the original starter could have just passed it down to him. Again, since these were merged from different forums, it'd be hard to say who the "starter" was, or if there even was one.

EDIT
I do wonder on their whole Member Numbering system though, him being Number one, it wouldn't be because he was the first member as according to his profile, he registered 3 days after myself and I'm member number 11111 (which I just found out, and is actually pretty cool). it must be because he's a top admin and I'm but a lowly Moderator. Or something like that.

The registration date is just as editable as any other user info. Maybe the ID too, depends.

Actually, the id is pretty much the only info that cannot be changed, It is essential to the database.

When Lucasforums was created way back in 2001 or whenever it was, it had to absorb quite a few other forums. As a courtesy to the members of those boards, everything was transferred over in the merger, including post counts and registration dates. Chris set these forums up and went about creating new sections for all the old forums that were being absorbed. Most of these old forums ran on the old UBB message board system and porting them to vB can't've been that easy. So in order to "move" user accounts over, entirely new ones were created here and the old info was applied to them. This explains why even though Chris is listed as number one, he still has people who registered before him as a result of the account transfers.




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me

With all these admins around, I wonder why none have helped me with my post count problem I've had for over a year. I will be glad to PM an admin about it if they would help.

That explains it, I must have joined just before, or during the merger, due to certain circumstances I didn't start posting until around 6 months after I joined meaning I never noticed that the escapemi forums (of which I'd joined before they'd merged with the scummbar forums and BSBC forums) had joined LF, I'd just assumed they's always been a part of LF (at the time that is).

It was 834, then matt-windu (I believe he was a former admin) deleted them on due me spaming (which I don't understand how I did, but oh well) and told me I would get them back after awhile. That was about a year ago. I can forward you the PMs if you want.

Matt_Windu's still an admin, under the new name of matt--

Have you tried PMing him?

Yes I have, but I have not gotten a response. I can only think that his Inbox is full of a bunch of messages. If it is, I don't get any messages telling me it's full.

Usually you don't nuke a post count with the intent to give the posts back, that's the whole point, isn't it ?

matt-- last posted on these boards sometime last month, it could just be that he hasn't got any of your messages yet, as it would tell you if his inbox was full. That said, coupes is right, I doubt he'd have taken them away if he was just going to give them back to you.

Wow, haven’t heard this question in a while. LucasForums.com provides the forums for LFNetwork sites, as pointed out above. Before LucasForums opened, LFNetwork had several major sites each with its own set of forums and moderators, chief among these was JediKnight.net. In order to improve service and cut costs we decided to merge all of our forums onto one server under one domain.

I am one of the partners who founded LFNetwork many years ago. I initially set up the first few forums on LucasForums when we were still experimenting with the concept; this is why I’m listed as user number 1. After we decided to implement LucasForums network wide we attempted to transfer all of the users and messages from our diverse group of forums to LucasForums. The users that were transferred during the move of course have older registration dates then I do.

We are currently in version 2.0 of LucasForums and I couldn’t be prouder of how things have turned out. But I can’t take much credit for this, our incredible staff of moderators and admins are the ones who made this site what it is today.

Trip down memory lane! I remember back before vb and UBB, we used something else. I wonder what that software was called.. the old black and red thread (then black & blue!) based forum with no registration required on JK.net...?
