Thread: Time to remove or rename this section?

  1. #1

    Question Time to remove or rename this section?

    Really, how many people are making EL sabers anymore? Perhaps the section could be renamed "Other illumination technologies," and new subsections could be added for, say, LED ladders.

    Just my two Republic Credits.

    Matt EL is not completely dead, close and it might even be on life support,
    But EL still serves many purposes yet as accent on sabers or other props. Maybe it should be named EL props.

    as a newcomer (to the behind-the-scenes side of things) i'm finding this rather interesting. It might not be the most advanced, but just as there are those with a liking for classic cars, I'm really looking forward to getting my nerve up to the EL blades.

    *shrug* not sure why, but I guess I want to learn about it ALL!

    I do think we need a seperate section for the new LED String technologies

    I don't know if we need a whole section for LED ladders--It's labor intensive, not good for dueling, and not likely to replace single high-power LED setups any time soon--but a subsection, definitely. And as Do-Clo pointed out, there are any number of uses for illumination technology, so a more broadly named main section might be more appropriate.

    I am surprised JL hasn't chimed in yet.

    I think this section should definitely not be removed. If for no other reason than it shows where light up sabers first got their start. It's sort of a piece of history. And, I've written a lot of posts here.

    Sometimes people want to try an EL saber just to try it get a feel for how it worked, and maybe for nostalgic purposes. I don't use my EL sabers anymore, but they are still a cherished part of my saber collection.

    I could see maybe renaming and expanding it with other technologies, too.

    I vote for renaming vs. removing.

    Hey, there's an idea, how about a poll?

    And J-Lo, might want to go grammar-nazi on your first sentence there, your missing a word or two

    Argh. I've been kind of failing at proofreading my own posts lately. I changed the sentence, and forgot to add the words I needed for it to be complete again.
