On what has become one of the most important days in geekdom and pop culture history, affectionately known forevermore as “D-Day” (as in Disney-Day), the Blog you all know and love was born – October 30, 2012!
Yes, folks, it was just two short years ago that Viral Hide began this Blog on the same day that the amazing Star Wars news broke — that we hardcore fans would be getting a slew of new movies, shows, books and games in the new era of Disney ownership! Viral started up his little one man operation feverishly scouring the internet and other media sources for every scrap of news he could find about the development of the new movie era, specifically Episode VII and the Sequel Trilogy. Little by little he found those tidbits of tasty morsels of rumors, speculations and, yes, even official news and kept us all updated on a daily basis. With that in mind, in the two short years since SW7N’s inception, his one man band has grown into a cast of thousands. Well, maybe not thousands, but a modest little staff of Bloggers. BUT that’s not all!
This past summer Viral Hide and company launched a great new message board forum called “The Cantina.” The Cantina is easily one of the fastest growing forums on the net as we greet new members every day into our wretched hive of scum and villainy. So in honor of StarWars7News’ second birthday we cordially invite everyone to join The Cantina forum! Those of you who join up and begin your posting adventure will have taken your first step into a larger world. Once you set up your account and upload an avatar, the last step you need to take is answer 3 simple questions which automatically registers you for a chance to win 1 of 4 great Star Wars prizes! And, yes, our current members need only answer the question as well to enter for the Birthday prizes! However, this contest lasts only for two weeks — through October 30th, 2014!
We promise there will be cake, dancing girls, and maybe even a surprise or two. So get started today and join us for our Birthday bash! Answer the questions HERE.
And the winners are:
@GOLD_LEADER – Book – The Sounds of Star Wars.
@Vegeta Fett – Toy – Speeder Bike and Figure.
@Captain Fantana – Book – SW Complete Visual Dictionary.
And because of the quick reaction and help, @Javi-Wan Kenobi gets the T-Shirt Tatooine 🙂
Also thanks to @JeffG. for the help. I hope your prize from the last contest is going to be dispatched soon. But we all heard about the delay in the Star Wars: Rebels toy line (the release date now is set for November 21).
Thanks everybody for participating. In the future we’re going to make giveaways every month. So stay tuned for those. 😉
