So yesterday was a rather well-known "holiday" of sorts, celebrating a certain order of Knights which for thousands of generations were the guardians of peace and Justice in the Old Republic. And yes, historically the element14 community has shown it's allegiance to the Republic, to democracy. But you should have known the Jedi were plotting to take over!
But do not fear. I have seen through the lies of the Jedi. I have brought peace, freedom, justice, and security to my new element14...
Revenge of the 5th
... Or realistically, I was out of town attending JiveWorld17 and this is my first time in the office all week. I spent May the 4th on an airplane, before falling into a brief post-travel coma. I have failed you, element14. I have failed you. But I still wanted to keep the tradition going... from a certain point of view. So instead, we're going to celebrate Revenge of the Fifth with a limited Sith-inspired badge available now until 12:00PM CDT on Monday.
All weekend? Is that... legal?
I will make it legal.
Since this is going up fairly late in the day for our friends in a galaxy far, far away (read: Europe and Asia) we wanted to make sure they had a chance to seek the true nature of the Force.
How do I earn the Badge?
Vote in the poll for your for your favorite Star Wars, and comment below with your reasons why.
Why is Rogue One on the list?
Okay, listen. Originally I wasn't going to include it for somewhat arbitrary reasons (it didn't have an opening crawl! it's not an Episode!) but then the "how do I earn the badge" sentence turned into something like "vote in the poll for your favorite currently released Episode of..." and you know what? Screw it. K2-SO was great.
May the Force ever serve you.
