listening to the people isn't a good thing to do, just ask the empire! (or the mod)

Feel really bad for the guy who was doing all the legwork, posting in all the subs and shit.
if temp wants to talk I'm here, I'd gladly like to know what's up his ass that makes moderating such a burden
"I am wounded with knife, sting, and tooth, and a long burden."
But fr, I’m 90% sure you think I’m mad cause you saw my comment that “I don’t want anymore visitors...”
Are you aware that this was a light-hearted reference to a movie? I saw your reply to that comment, and it seems like you thought I was serious.
well from what I've seen, you have negativity towards modding, from comment quotes to complaining people wanted the sub icon to change. I didn't recognize the quote that's on me but it seems to fit the everything I've heard that's a genuine misunderstanding on my part.
I never complained about the sub icon. The comment thread I replied to in that post was about getting more mods.
And the only negative comment that I can think of was when I sent a guy a clip of Uncle Rico saying “you can leave.” But I stand by that.
I would’ve given up this place if I didn’t like it.
Hello! I am just genuinely curious. Why won’t you just change the icon to Palpatine. It takes about a minute and is not tedious whatsoever. I mean, the entire Star Wars fandom here across many subreddits want it, and it would show our unity! And come on, when have we all ever agreed on something? This would be absolutely awesome! It would make a lot of people happy (including me lol) ☺️. I just don’t see the harm in it at all. It would be amazing in my opinion (and a lot of other people as well)
I don't know... I think this is pretty hilarious
as you can imagine your question remains unanswered
If you want my pessimistic take, which why would you, I feel like its OT elitism.
It's what Sheev would've wanted
The rule of 2 must prevail
It's simple really, it's not a Star wars sub, it's his sub, about star wars
I just don’t think that it resembles the sub well, that’s all.
I’d personally rather do something else. Like maybe a Skywalker thing; like Anakin, Luke, then Rey (lmao).
Yea, the guy responsible for all of the events in the OT wouldn't fit, let's make it an ewok.
Why does it matter though? It’s a silly debate about what silly fictional character serves as icon of our silly internet group about silly pictures.
Then stay out of it?
Oof. I am filled with chagrin.
I’d personally make the argument that there are far more memes about Palpatine than there are about the Skywalkers, and this is the OT *memes* subreddit so I think it would resemble the sub rather well
Guys, he said this while our current icon is an ewok, I can't stress that enough.
Wicket is a Skywalker /s
He's a cunt. Everyone knows it, everyone has known it for a long time.
a cunt? over the sub icon? LMFAO
This is a fair, well-measured response to a man changing the icon picture from an old dude in a hood to a younger dude in a furry mask.
Wdym Palpatine is like the main villain. It works perfectly well. Also a word of advice to you if you’ll take it :) You are kind of upsetting a lot of people clearly and um… does not make you look good. It’d be best for you and everyone else if you just did what the people want and just make people happy. I mean, your the only person I’ve seen who is opposed to this idea and your a mODerator! Lol, I mean what are the chances 😅. I get it may not be ur favorite idea but it is to a lot of people and it would just be nice to make them happy yk :) A lot of people such as me would appreciate the gesture if you just made the icon Palpatine :)
"Wdym Palpatine is like the main villain"
you misspelled "the main hero"
Hey, don't come at us with that the empire did nothing wrong shit man, they genocided the geonosians! I just realized how similar that sounds... hmm, anyway I hated them but still, not kewl.
Bugs are annoying
They deserved it, Palpatine is a saint he did nothing wrong!
i mean he's technically the main villain but that's like saying the padishah emperor in dune is the main villain and not the harkonnens. he only appears for a few minutes in the second and third movie
To reword this a bit more bluntly, it takes like seconds of your time and it’ll make everyone happy
I think that by all the upvotes on this post, all the comments on this post, and all the downvotes you’re getting, we all want Palps as the sub icon.
If you can’t see that, then *this is how democracy dies, without thunderous applause*
Prequel memes isnt changing theirs anytime soon plus, palpatine is the main villain of the OT. It would fit it perfectly.
Kylo is a closer Skywalker at that point
I love democracy
How do you get to make this decision asking for a friend
But it ain't your sub, we are telling you it does represent us. The fact you're being downvotes proves you wrong
You are clearly a troll if you think and ewok describes the OT better than the literal leader of the enemy in every OT movie
Well, that's what you think, but I guess you are not the only person in this sub and that your opinion alone is more important than the other members' on this sub.
Is this a thing all the mods agree with? Or are you just deciding for all of us?
All the mods agree with him because there are no other mods aside from him.
I might be wrong, but isn't that how a dictatorship works?
"This sub shall be reorganized into the first Reddit Empire"
Rey isn't a Skywalker, she's a Palpatine.
And an ewok or holiday special DOES?
So you’re blocking people from getting what they want because of personal preference? I’ve never seen all 3 subs align like this, but it’s not happening because you just don’t feel like it?
We get it. Your opinion matters more than all these other people.
That or you just love the attention you are receiving. My money is on that one.
It doesn’t matter what you think?
well ditto to you, it doesn't matter what you think either
It matters what the community thinks. Not the mod. If the community wants palpatine as the picture we should get it
I'm saying one single person shouldn't get to override hundreds just because they have one reason not to. it should be democratic with more than one person calling the shots so we don't run into issues like this
Just do it
Dumbass Rey ain’t a “real” skywalker. That’s literally the thing I hate the most about the sequels
Not the point but go off
Idk I get it’s not the point but still.
I just spent like 20 mins making a meme for each sub showing how this one only has one mod, which is becoming a corrupt system
Yes, let's make it an ewok. Makes perfect sense, just admit that you're an ot elitist
>I’d personally rather do something else.
Don't you get that what people are complaining about... the whole sub wants something but because of your own personal opinion, your choosing not to?!
It's not about what YOU want. You're supposed to moderate the sub not make it a reflection of yourself
Have you actually ever watched a Star Wars film? Fuck off.
Because he's not a push over little bitch? This isn't a democracy. You don't cry and bitch hard enough and get your way.
You know, for a non-democracy, Reddit sure Cale’s a lot about up- and down- *votes.*
You’re saying that like we’re asking him to change all the rules and give someone else the subreddit. It’s just an icon, we’re not “crying and bitching”.
Its ironic, the boot lickers have cried more than anyone.
A man stalked my google account and sent me a message on an alt with a picture of my 14 year old face from an ancient YT video as the profile picture with a name like "DarthsWifeIsaCow" all because he was so upset over the mod getting "attacked". That's a real thing a human being did today.
But yea, we're the ones who need to step back.
To be fair though, your wife is literally a cow.
You should give it up though, your a shitty user who can’t even be called a leader. You have mod powers but you are no mod, just an asshole who can’t understand they aren’t wanted. The least you could do is just add other mods to do the work for you but you can’t even do that.
You have given up on this place. Otherwise you’d be doing some, ya know, moderating. Or at the very least, letting someone who hasn’t given up have a chance at the wheel.
I can't believe you're that much in denial you can't see why people don't like you. And no, it's not because of a single ewok picture. Talk about power hungry, and letting the fact you being in charge of a sub get to your head.
I thought it was hilarious. It needed to be an icon from the HS because it’s the singular best meme source of the entire SW franchise and not enough people know about it. In fact this place could be just holiday special memes and it would be great.
They’re downvote brigading you because they think it’s hilarious to go along with the crowd but it’s really unfair to you and you’re going to end up muted by the algorithm in your own sub. Admins need to step in and stop the brigade. We like the sub icon and it’s not other subs’ business if they don’t.
At this point I much prefer your trolling with the sub icon to having some silly “unity” about having Palpatine on every sub. So keep on keepin’ on my dude.
Also, in case no one else has noticed, this silly icon stuff has finally given us a tiny respite from r/PrequelMemes’ blastedly unfunny sEqUel BaD memes. Let’s all count our lucky stars and enjoy the innocence of a little harmless trolling.
The downvotes seems to suggest people wish you would, but I don’t know, I’m not a regular here.
Jesus you are getting a lot of downvotes for basically no reason
Stop using your alts to award yourself

Also, why do you not have any other moderators? I’ve seen smaller subreddits that have way more moderators.
always one there is. No more, no less.
Seriously, this dude is just power hungry
No idea why you're getting downvoted but I think you're cool
He purposely refuses to do something small to help show unity between the 3 trilogy meme subs that all 3 wants.
And probably more.
It’s not about the icon specifically but how he blatantly disrespected the majority of the reddit Star Wars community’s wishes
Have a word with yourself and listen to what you sound like.
I wish subreddits could vote out unpopular mods.
I wish reddit admins would pull their head out of their ass
It’s treason then..
My allegiance is to the Republic! To Democracy!
If you're not with me, then you're my enemy
Oh no, I’m not brave enough for politics
some people are giving arguments that papa palpatine was only in episode 6 and barely in episode 5 yeah well so were the evoks
> In all three trilogies.
Not to me.
There's only one trilogy, the human trilogy.
GO FOR PAPA PALPATINE
I don't get it just change the pic you don't have to keep it forever. Jeez looks like a power trip at this point
Mod behaving like a hoe
Damn the perspective on that template makes no sense.
I think the Ewok icon is awesome. Sorry it’s not your jam.
considering how boring endor was compared to the rest of the movie? and how they were made cute and cuddly for the sole purpose of toy sales? yeah no, papa palps is wayy better
As a kid who watched RotJ on VHS, the forest battle was the fun part. I want papa Palps as the sub icon though.
Doesn’t the icon change all the time? Won’t it be Palpatine again, soon?
I’m ignorant to the fast world of OTMemes, but it seems likely, right?
it's been Vader for as long as I can remember (until recent)
Vader > Ewoks.
I'd rather have Vader than a meth addict ewok
Meanwhile, on old Reddit none of the icons have changed since long before pride month... Never even got sexy Palpatine in prequel memes, but still Palps at least..
Since this is a meme page bent on humor: you’re right. We should have a matching sub icon to our possibly inbred cousin subs. Besides, Palpatine is pretty epic.
the only inbred one is sequel memes, let's be real. it was called the complete saga for a reason, right boys?
Prequel memes has a lot to work with, and they can laugh at themselves.
Sequel folk are touchy about almost everything.
difference is, prequel fans can look at their movies and say "I enjoy this. it has flaws, but I can sit and watch and enjoy these movies again and again" and take valid criticism.
I've watched sequel fans try to argue every bit of fair criticism (ie. towards the Finn vs Rey switch, the marysue arguement, and the overusage of plot convenience) and throw a shit fit because we won't leave the flaws alone. every single movie has at least one flaw, even 4 5 and 6 and they can't take that for some reason
I personally like the prequels but it’s a lot of nostalgia and I’m completely aware at how bad they are, but I truly enjoy watching them. They build on the world a lot more than the sequels do and while the writing was bad I thought the casting was great for a majority of the roles. But yeah, people don’t always take kindly to sequel criticism
There's no proof besides Rey having exceptional flying skills and resisting Kylos probe that she is a Mary sue. She got schooled in TROS by Kylo when it was a fair fight.
I also have to bring people back from the brink of death after they school me in a fight.
the fact that she masters the force faster than most, can use an ability that no one else has besides grogu, but no she couldn't be over powered
It was Vader for at least the entire time I've been here which has been at least a year or so.
He is only changing it to troll other subs and create conflict
It has been Vader since forever. Literally the mod is so damn lazy and inactive but will crawl out of his hole if he can create conflict or silence opposition
A bear that can bearly smile? Or a evil man with a grim smile
Temp is based af
I agree. So many salty little boys in my OT subreddit.
y'all just need to chill tf out it's just a sub icon
No, it's a moderator purposefully antagonizing the community hes supposed to be care taking. The picture wouldn't be a big deal if he didnt change it specifically to make people mad.
Nah its really not a big deal.
The only mod we have is actively antagonizing the community. That's a problem.
I remember when people were complaining about the palp picture in the comments and calling out the mod, like you people can never be happy
Are you so deluded you think the same people did both? The majority where happy, this is just blatant boot licking for temp.
No you need to get over it, i see you everywhere in this comments section. Who gives a shit about a sub icon and some mod man
>Who gives a shit about a sub icon and some mod man
*gestures at the rest of the sub*
Either contribute or butt out.
it's a picture, chill
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away there where 3 worlds. These worlds lived in a delicate balance called the trilogy pact, not everyone wanted the others around, but they orbited the same star.
The Prequelites hated the Sequelians. The Originums hated the Prequelites... and the Sequelians. But everyone respected the Originums at least begrudgingly. Yet despite the constant skirmishes, one day it was decided that the worlds would have a display of unity. Such a thing was unheard of. Never had the the trilogies been in total agreement. The Prequelites hoisted their techincolored tribute and looked to their neighbors.
The Originums displayed a tribute of good vibes and chill times. The people rejoiced and turned to look longingly at the Sequlians home. After much tension, the Sequlians, bless their little hearts, lifted a tribute that appeased the onlookers.
As the worlds turned back around to begin the celebration, a child in the crowd cried out, pointing to the sky "Mama! What have they done with the good vibes? Are they safe? Are they alright?" Everyone looked in horror as instead of the tribute, hung a note that read "Na Na Na Boo Boo" the worlds where shocked. The two neighbors implored the Originums
"Why have you done this? Are we not neighbors? Could this mean war?"
"No!" Cried the Originums. "It was our god king! We know not why but he has backed out of our unity!"
The Prequelites wept. The Sequelians wailed. All the while the people begged their god king
"Please oh lord on high, allow us to rejoice with our brothers!"
The god king rose from his throne and took to the balcony to address his people.
With a hush descending the crowd, he held up his hand. He looked over his people, falling into squabbles and bickering.
**"LOL"** He proclaimed. "**LMAO**"
He turned, and walked into the shadows of his palace, ignoring the anguished cries of his people.
And then everyone died.
This is the best thing ive seen all week
and I've seen a miniature lemon lime and bitters
it had a little lemon slice and a cute little leaf
Why not c3 po or r2 d2 cmon really they’re the real heroes.
This sub got flooded by r/PrequelMemes fanboys, it's becoming more and more toxic. Stand your ground u/Temp1493
Yea, because no one who likes the prequels could possibly also be a fan of the OT. Like, why would there be any crossover in the userbase? That's just silly.
I love the prequels more than the original trilogy. I'm just saying prequel memes is a pathetic circle jerk running on 3 jokes and this sub has become the same thing
Dude, this sub has been dead for years. It breaks my heart to say but maybe once a month I see something on here worth noticing. The OT has existed for decades. The redundant humor has nothing to do with the prequels.
Fucking right. It started to become shit when prequel memes decided to help OT get more numbers than sequel memes. You're a legend u/temp1493
Watching you nerds squirm over the Reddit page icon is so good lmfao. You guys will become toxic over anything!! Yesssss goooooodddddd
This is a gross misrepresentation of the situation. The mod is purposefully antagonizing the community, and hes the only mod we have. That's a problem to be addressed. The picture isnt the problem it's the idea that the guy in charge of this sub is *trying* to piss people off.
I honestly think it’s funny he’s trying to piss everyone off and it’s working as long as it’s something as harmless as this lmao
That's toxic as hell.
Yes that’s toxic, not the harassment and name calling towards the mod for a .jpeg
Yea because thats totally the vast majority of what people are doing right? If someone being an asshole and you call them an asshole, that's not name calling, it's the truth. This mod has been problematic for his entire time here, refusing to listen to the community and refusing to allow more mods. Hes power hungry and toxic.
I’m not here to argue. I just think it’s funny. Hope u guys sort it out I’ll check in occasionally ✌️
You’re still going on about this? Go to bed lol
More power to him
I don't think that's actually possible
Lol you're right. I wrote that without a full grasp of what was goin on. That being said I think people are blowing this way out of proportion
Cry some more
Awe, I missed it.
i think u/SidTheSloth97 is not a gay lord
I wasn’t even saying it because of anything to do with pride or being gay, I’m gay. I just mean if prequel memes is gonna have a picture that hardly resembles sheev then people can’t really complain that this sub not having one. I think I just got downvote because people like to find ways to take offence.
Luke was also in all 3 trilogies
he was a new born and only in 40 seconds of the prequels and was completely torn apart in the sequels minus mandalorian, he also wasn't a main character in the prequels
Still there tho
You could say the same for Chewbacca, R2D2, C3PO and many other characters. They're not the main character of all 3 trilogies.
I don't want a Palpatine icon in all trilogies because Palpatine shouldn't have been in the sequels
That icon is like a cry out
