Hey everyone, this is Brian, your fellow RL member from the Star Base, aka Nabooty_Call.


Just wanted to give you a heads-up regarding the SFSW group. 


Judging from what I've read over the past couple days, I would not trust them.


They've been operating in a pretty two-faced manner, trying to get away with things on the FanForce boards while insulting the group as a whole and individuals in a pretty childish fashion on their local club forum.  I'll send you a link if you like, but it's fairly explicit, and against their own site's supposed rules...


What makes this potentially affect the Rebel Legion is that several of their members have been explicitly bad-mouthing our fellow Rebel, Obey Wann, without even knowing the guy...so, if you run into them, be on your guard.


And if you know anyone who's a SFSW member, I'm usually a peacemaker, and tried to log in to their board to find out what's really behind all this, but was not allowed to post and had my profile changed to show some offensive info...


I'd still like to get this resolved, but in the meantime wanted to warn everyone. 


Thanks,


Brian

I've met a lot of the main characers from both the SFSW and the South Bay group and we've had quite a few successful joint events over the years.


They're definitely a lively bunch, esp. the SF crowd who are mostly in their early 20's and are into partying, beer, bars etc. big time.


For those interested here's their forum, but he warned they do tend to use some colorful language at times.

Here's the thread from Jenn (the club press) explaining why they split of from Fan Force. Really doesn't say much, but it gives some background.

It also looks like Jenn has been banned from FF and the Bay Area forums will be deleted very soon. [Sad]

Take care


Chris

Their "Name the Club" thread makes for interesting reading.

It's fine to have a non-family-friendly group, but to masquerade as a wholesome group so you can talk smack about others is not cool in my book.


 From what I've heard about them, otherwise they're a fun bunch...hope they are more up-front about things off the boards, though, because I'm usually a pretty fun guy to be around, and will watch your back, like Obey Wann and all the other FF staff I've met.


LOL, and they may want to get their facts straight before doing any more name-calling...instead of being "The Man," most of the FanForce staff are ladies who definitely don't fit their narrow-minded stereotype!


Feel free to contact me with any questions, and Happy Holidays!


Brian

Hi All


I realize there is some overlap in membership, but can we please keep this discussion over on the TFN FF and SFSW forums.


Personally, I'm here to enjoy myself and do not want to get into the politics of other groups.


Thanks


Chris

Will do.  Usually I don't run around crying about politics, just wanted to give you a heads-up.


Thanks,


Brian
