You will need more than anecdotal evidence to prove your point.
“My best friend’s uncle’s cousin’s girlfriend met George Lucas once in the hallway to the bathroom at some con and told me this!”
ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE = BAD!
“Based on the following top novels, author interviews, and this verifiable internet links for evidence, the reason for this action is ___________”
EVIDENCE = GOOD!
New Canon vs Legends (Star Wars Expanded Universe) Canon
SWAG 77 promotes the reading of all Star Wars literature despite if it part of the new canon versus the legends (SWEU) canon.
WE PROMOTE READING OF STAR WARS BOOKS.
READING IS FUNDAMENTAL
Whatever it takes to get people to read, then we think it should be considered. It is all about Star Wars and learning, especially for roleplay performances.
We will not discuss what is or is not canon when we are thinking about stories.
Stories express creativity
Creative ideas must be expressed
All information is relevant when there is brainstorming
All discussions take place on SWAG 77 LORE Pages
Post and Comment Responses
Not all posts or messages merit a response on any page.
Commenting multiply will get you banned.
Silly posts that fail to stimulate conversation will be deleted.
RARELY does SWAG 77 address these kinds of posts.
Necroposting is dumb, so don’t do it (necroposts are 2+ months old).
ONLY SWAG 77 members are engaged in RP performance stories on Facebook. Stories are planned and are approved. SWAG 77 writes scripts and transcribes the comments. SWAG 77 respects Disney Lucasfilm Ltd content creators and timeline.
SWAG 77 READS STAR WARS EVERYDAY! Our story arcs are written in advance. All out of character (OOC) discussions take place on lore pages. Please visit The Cost of Star Wars Fandom, Star Wars: The Clone Wars Facts and Trivia or Star Wars Rebels to discuss general Star Wars opinions, ideas, and lore.
Our Facebook character pages are NOT places of discussion of Star Wars Lore or personal opinions. Our character pages are like “mini-theaters”: The audience watches show on social media, and if an audience member is lucky, our characters will interact with him or her (called breaking the 4th wall). If a post piques our interest, our character pages will respond.
Real life and Star Wars controversial discussions:
PROHIBITED on SWAG 77 Character RP Performance pages.
SWAG 77 Character RP Performance pages will not discuss real life socio-political problems
That is not roleplay
What does it have to do with Star Wars directly?
SWAG 77 does not troll, stalk or stan
We are human and sometimes we will share our real-life opinions, which will flip the conversation that is in character
We ask fans to understand our process: SWAG 77 is here to RP perform Star Wars.
Tattling to other pages, especially on our SWAG 77 RP performance character pages is silly! SWAG 77 pages have shared administration and management as a part of our daily operation.
Foul language, PROFANITY or social injustice epithets are absolutely unacceptable. Our pages are PG-13 and we want posters to read our pages anywhere.
ANY USE OF REAL LIFE SLURS INVOKES THE “ONE STRIKE RULE”: It will be reported, the individual will be banned and the comment will be deleted. We have zero tolerance for such behavior. There is no protected speech on a SWAG 77 account. BIGOTRY is not Star Wars Fandom.
All trolls will be reported, banned and their comments deleted without explanation.
SWAG 77 Fictional Character pages are just that –FICTIONAL CHARACTERS!
THERE WILL BE NO FANTASIZING with our Fictional Character pages.
RANDOM CHARACTERS WILL NOT “hook up”, “catfish” or “ship” our fictional characters.
REAL LIFE NAMES ARE NOT the name of fictional characters.
SWAG 77 performers do not live their lives through their fictional character(s).
WE ARE ACTORS
WE ARE NOT WISHING OUR REAL LIVES WERE LIKE OUR FICTIONAL CHARACTERS!
WE ARE NOT OUR FICTIONAL CHARACTERS!
WE HAVE A LIFE OUTSIDE OF OUR ROLEPLAYS!
WORK WITH SWAG 77 TO CULTIVATE FRIENDSHIPS BY OUR GREAT WORKS
RP PERFORMANCE CRITIQUES ARE NOT DONE ON PERFORMANCE PAGES. IT CAUSES AN OUT OF CHARACTER RESPONSE.
LEARN THE BASICS OF RP BEFORE CRITICIZING! RP EDUCATION IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS AS THERE ARE NO ON THE JOB EXPERIENCES.
