Per the suggestions of some of the members, and after Council deliberations, we have implemented some changes to the FX-Sabers Forums.
The rules have been modified, and in a couple of cases relaxed a bit. I will explain the “major changes”, and go over a few other things.
1. The Trade Federation selling rules: The rules have been relaxed to only require one month (30 Days) and 15 posts, before you can sell items. We are willing to be flexible, but we are NOT willing to just let people come in here and potentially scam people out of the gate.
2.Rules for Advertising and Business Association: We are going to relax the rules here a little, meaning we will now allow you to have your business name in the custom text field of your online profile. You can sell completed products, HOWEVER, if you want to offer services, or things of that nature, apply to be an official member of the Mining Colony, so that OUR membership here can feel confident in dealing with you. There is a new Mining Colony application which you can fill out and we can review. Trying to get around these policies will result in disciplinary action.
We have implemented a new section Scarif (Our Archives), which is where people can more easily research feedback on members and business entities (whether they do business here or not), so that people can be informed before they spend their hard earned money with a vendor.
Likewise, Ahch-To was discovered. Rey may have swiped a few original texts, but this will be the new section where all the Tutorials, and other new technology discussions can go.
Mining Colony members will now have their own boards, similar to the Saber Guild members, and they will have the ability to moderate their own boards.
Toshi Station is where you can discuss vendors that are neither active or do business here on FX-Sabers. Again, if people want to solicit business, they can apply to enter the Mining Colony, and have their work verified by some of the top people in the hobby. There will also be an area for 3D printing discussions and such in this area.

The situation with pictures - we have implemented a couple of solutions which I will cover in a seperate post. You can use those options to post (or fix) your pictures.
We will be giving people 90 days to sort out their posts and pictures, and what hasn’t been repaired will either be left with the broken links or simply removed if the posts weren’t of any great importance.
We look forward to better serving the community with these revisions.
Please let us know if you have any questions about the changes.
