To ensure that the discussions on this forum serve this site's purpose it is important that we implement a "NO Roleplaying" Rule. There are no other forums dedicated to serious discussion about lightsaber sporting combat that are not owned by a lightsaber manufacturer or that belong solely to a specific saber club. This is why Saber Arts was created; to be an independent forum where saber enthusiasts can discuss this emerging sport. Somehow, in other saber-centric forums people always manage to sneak in discussions about being Jedi / Sith or using force powers. Consequently what is very clearly Star Wars roleplaying gets mixed into otherwise serious discussions about lightsaber combat as a modern sport. This mixture of fantasy and reality makes it hard for useful discussions to take place, and for lightsaber combat as a sport and fitness exercise to be taken seriously. Therefore it is important that we make it known that under no circumstances are users allowed to engage in roleplaying here. There are many forums for Star Wars roleplaying and this is not one of them. Those who break this rule will be gently reminded one time. Repeat offenses will result in a ban.
