"The forums have been online since October 2001 and have featured conversations with various Star Wars VIPs. Lucas Licensing's Sue Rostoni had an ongoing dialog with Del Rey customers where she responded to fan questions and concerns. The forums received a facelift in July 2010 that gave users several new features."

Closure Update :

"Update: Due to a forums outage over the weekend of April 22-24th, we've extended the time before the forums will be locked into read-only mode. The new date for that is Tuesday, May 3rd."
