Hi! -massadoobie - Aug 27 09:28pm

Hello everyone, it's your benevolent dictator here. Just wanted to say hello since I haven't been around much. I just got a new job which takes up a ton of time, and to be honest, there's not a lot of JA work that needs me at this point. As far as my status here is concerned, I don't plan on leaving, but my roles in the day to day activities of the Academy are pretty much non-existent. I consider myself somewhat of an advisor at this point (with veto power and a really really big JAC stick to swing around when I feel like it) but also consider this place my baby and wouldn't want to completely leave unless I'm the last one left and am turning off the lights. On that note...

I feel we've reached a point where things are pretty much stable. We all know the JK:JA and JK2 will get old for everyone (as I know they've gotten old for a lot of us), but rest assured, we'll be here throughout it all. Hopefully we'll get a new Katarn/Jedi Knight game at some point, but even if we don't, we've set up the kind of community that transcends the games themselves (and ya never know, maybe we'll support other games some day, or even become a Pokemon Academy or something. Whatever you want :)).

We love to get ideas though, so if you want to use the comments on this thread to give us some sweet ideas and ways to spark the community, feel free. But as we move into old age (and yeah, we're old as far as communities like this come, and we even had our mid-life crisis when we reorganized!), we'll still continue to support and thrive whoever wants to hang out with us, learn how to be better gamers and people, and kick it old school like we do. Werd.

Viva La Academia!

Long live the Academy; I'm just glad this was able to grow outside of solely at JK training community. At least we can talk about other stuff that's even closely related.

And don't worry, doobie, I'm as guilty of inactivity as you are (even more so); but at least, in my opinion, if the academy lasts long enough, I can come back with what I've learned from my career and make an impact with this community in the future.

Great post, I agree that we need a new JK game, I think they should go like the movies in that they go prequil like Jedi Knight: Guardians of the Republic or something. Where you chose a master at the start, and depending on which master you chose depends on how the missions are played out or something like that, but I digress.
Anyway yes maybe we should expand but I'd like to see us stay Star Wars orientated but thats just me, I'm a Star Wars nut.
And yeah Lucas Arts and Raven lets see more JK, if there's a petition some where I'll sign it. And if you can do something from the inside Orion (with out getting fired that is) :)

I want to be a Gym Leader when we become a Pokemon Academy, so be sure to save me spot, okay?

If we don't do that, we should support HL2....

Great post, to start with :)
This academy has become a special place for me, since the moment I joined I felt welcome and I still do. Although the academy has changed somewhat. I have no idea why, but it feels different than it used to. Maybe it needs a spark indeed, maybe we need a new game. But I still love the JK:JA game, so why change that?
Well, I guess I just wanted to say, thank you people who created this place and thank all you people for being a part and making it a lot of fun! :D :D
Hooray for the academy!

First of all, awesome post... and yes that comes from me...
But the spark to this place/game that's gonna be difficult I guess, I mean the server still are occupied and there's still new people joining this community, but Honestly, I believe the need for a new SW/Jedi game is pretty high(/me smacks Orion, get yr people to design a new game dammit).
This place is awesome, it truly is...
I joined this place when JA wasn't a new game anymore and still it was a time that I will remember for the rest of my life, the people here are really awesome, but it doesn't feel like the the place it was to me anymore...
Doobie is completely right we need a spark...
I wouldn't know how to put a spark to this place though... please folks input your ideas!
