I update the list every couple of days. Please let me know if you see an error or omission.
Serial numbers are all three digits and range from 001-100. We don't have a choice there. I'm also posting what numbers have been taken tommake it easier on future sponsors to choose a specific serial number.

Guys, thank you so much for helping to support the forum. Our first week of ad free forum surfing has been awesome. We had one VERY generous sponsor (anonymous for now) that helped tip the scales early. Our account balance is way in the black and we'll easily cover our bills this year.
You guys rock.
Even though I've paid for a recurring monthly subscription, I see our ads are back. I'm on with proboards tech support right now for a resolution.

Please join me in welcoming Wade aka Saberconcepts as moderator. Wade has been an active member of the forum for many years and I had the pleasure of meeting him when we went to Grayson's house for our charity event.
We generally don't have smiths as mods so there's no conflicts of interest. Since Wade is not in our Alliance or Armory and he's more of a hobbyist, I don't see a conflict of interest at this time.
Wade is a really great guy, is hardworking and will serve us well.

I wanted a place to thank everyone that's contributing to keep this site going. So far, our planned yearly challenge coin fundraiser is progressing nicely. At our current pace we're well on our way to cover our costs for the first year and we'll most likely have a positive balance that carries us into 2018.
This thread is our way of saying thank you and to recognize our members that have taken an extra step to help keep our site running.
To our newer members:
The Rebel Armory is a non profit custom lightsaber and prop forum. We've always prided ourselves that we're a forum for the members. For the first time in our five and a half years, we've opened our financial obligations to our members. We don't charge sellers fees or dues. We're running solely off the generosity of our members. Each year we will have a limited run (100 coins) of TRA challenge coins that will be a fundraiser to pay our bills. You can find out more in our 2017 challenge coin thread found here.
This year's 2017 fundraiser will be active until all 100 coins have been sold. Some members have purchased more than one coin or donated more than the requested minimum price of $15. Every little bit helps. Thank you to our first ever 2017 TRA Sponsors.

We walked out of the ceremony to the ANH award music. When we got in the car to leave our 6 yr old nephew started humming the Star Wars theme song and everyone started singing along as we left. They also soaped "May The Force Be With You" on our rear window.
We had other friends cut their cake with a lightsaber and had Luke and Leia(yeah I know) as cake toppers. There're lots of cool SW ideas for weddings.

A couple of you have asked for a specific serial number. I will do my best to accommodate those requests. Numbers 1,2,9 & 14 have been spoken for. I'd suggest picking more than one number as they will fill up as we move along. The number range is 001-100. We won't be doing another run of these. The plan is to run 100 coins each year.
If you have a request please send me a pm with just the number in the pm time. That way I don't even need to open the pm as I'll see them all right in the title. I will NOT respond. That will save me some time. All requests will go in order based on the time stamp. All other orders will be selected based on the order of the PayPal donation time stamp.

I'm having some issues right now with proboards changes not saving. We'll make an announcement when the new domain is active. Fortunately the site is functioning normally with no degradation of services for our members. In time, the small glitches will be dealt with. For now, its business as usual with a cool new look.
gregkash: Anyone know when they'll be getting Spark2 Boards back in stock? Or know where I can find out?

Rogue Five: I wish the movie would let you know when there's an end credits scene. I just saw Kong: Skull Island and apparently there was a teaser of another famous monster. Last three movies I saw had nothing after the credits. Just my luck the one time I walk out...

Rogue Five: Why am I telling you guys this? I don't know. I guess I'm a little annoyed. I feel like I didn't get my money's worth lol

Rogue Five: And I never remember to check the internets to confirm
Apr 27, 2017 22:24:42 GMT -5
Rogue Five: So to sum up. If you're going to go see Skull Island, make sure to stay after the credits
