Hello.

I have been inactive for some time, so some of our newer members may not know me, or know that I am a member... and have been the chair of... the council of this order. I've been inactive because I'm in nursing school, and the end of the semester is a very busy time.

Today, I came back, and read through many of the recent posts. Something strikes me rather hard. To whit, my ideas about what this order is, could, and should be, are evidently diametrically opposed to those of the vast majority of members.

Therefore, I have either to change my views, or resign my position of leadership. As my views are rather firm, and my time lamentably limited, I have chosen to do the second. A leader who disagrees with the body is not a leader, but an obstacle.

So, effective immediately, I am resigning from the chair, and the council. I may pop by occasionally to see what's happening, but don't depend on my regular presence.

As I go, I would like to give you two words of caution.

The first word is judgement. Reason and Faith are like the shoes on our feet; we can go further on both than with one alone. I see, however, in this order, an over-abundance of faith, and an under-utilization of reason. Use your mind; use your judgement. Do not accept fanciful claims without proof, and analyze the proof to see if it is, in fact, proof, and not just a hoax.

The second word is prudence. I see that the forum is using more and more images produced by LucasFilm Limited (LFL). This seems to me a bad idea. Those images are owned by LFL, and eventually, someone from that organization is going to take offense. When they do, lawyers will become involved, and bad things will happen.

May the Force be with you, as our paths diverge.

I spent five years abaft the mast in the US Navy. You can be sure I have some stories about silly, impulsive things I did... but, uh... most of them aren't fit for family audiences.

The Temple of the Jedi Order is not a role play site.

I appologize. After discussion of the matter in council, I find that, in fact, Brother John did grant you a knighthood in the days before the council was fully formed and organized. In that respect, you did not lie.

That knighthood has been revoked by action of the council, because of your actions. As I'm sure Jax has already explained to you, you may, in the future, be able to regain it.

I see no useful purpose to further discussion on this issue. It is a reminder of the past, and we wish to focus on the future in this instance. I am therefore locking the topic, and hope that we will all now move on from the issue.

As a young man, I competed Modern Pentathalon and Men's Individual and Team Sabre. In the Navy, I was a rescue swimmer, which lead to my being on the swim team.

I've studied Aikido, Southern style Wing Chung, Kendo and Shinkendo.

I think you've watched Krull too many times.

Actually, that's an artifact of the BB system we use. The default rank for a new user is the one based on number of posts you've made. If your rank on the BB doesn't say "padawan" what it means is that one of us who chan change it hasn't been arsed to do so.

Jax, the problem with your winged saber is the cross-bar hilt, for a couple of reasons.

First of all, no saber we've seen so far actually has a cross.

Secondly, the cross bar on hilts was historically seen as a symbol and reminder of the Crucifiction of Christ, which gives the impression that we are a Christian order... which we're not, particularly.1

Your graphics work, as always, remains impecable.



1 Though many of our Order consider themselves Christian, and though others consider Christ to have been a wise man and good teacher, our own teachings and philosophies do not center on him.

Dastardly,
  1. You are welcome to hate us all you like. Your declarations of said emotion will not change our actions.

  2. You have been censored, blocked, and censured because you have repeatedly broken the rules of this site and this order. No matter how loudly, or how often, you protest your innocence, you are not innocent. We know it, and so do you.

  3. You did hack this site, and we have the trace logs to prove it. You may thank Brother John for his kindness in persuading the rest of us not to take legal action against you for vandalism.

  4. You are not now, nor have you ever been, a knight of this order. Only the council holds the authority to create knights, and we are well aware of whom we have bestowed that dignity upon... the list does not include you.

    These are not attacks; they are statements of fact. You are welcome to remain here so long as you can behave like an adult. When you show that you can not, we will once again censor, and censure, you. You currently have posting privileges without the need for moderator approval; this is a privilege, not a right, and it could again be revoked. This is a private forum, on a privately owned site; as such, it is subject to the rules we have established for communications here.

    Calm down, take a deep breath, and then either join us in adult discussion, or go away. Either way is fine.
