Now that Star Wars: The Complete Saga is being released on Blu-Ray and getting mainstream attention, there will be zillions of fans old and new rediscovering these films and asking lots of questions. We already have a solid Star Wars showing on the site, but the more questions with great answers we have, the higher the chances are that new people will find our site during their quest to understand the ways of the Force. Science Fiction & Fantasy SE has a shot at having the best answers to those questions — better than any of those, you know, competitive sites. Essentially, this is a great time to recruit new members!
What can you do to help?
As you come across Star Wars-related articles/pictures/memes/etc., any questions that they inspire, no matter how silly, ask them here. This includes, but is definitely not limited to, questions regarding the Blu-Ray editions that you may have after its release on Friday. Also consider posting general questions about the original trilogies, any of the Star Wars animated movies or series, the expanded universe novels and comic books. You're not the only one having that question. Millions of other people will, too. Ask them even if you think you're going to be able to find the answer yourself… and if you do find the answer, go ahead and answer it yourself.
When answering these questions, do everything you can to overkill it. Don't just answer with a hyperlink to some other discussion group somewhere. Write a detailed, ultra-clear answer that is just as complete and clear as you can muster. Help us have the best possible answers to these common problems and questions fans have about the Star Wars universe!
If a question comes in that is unclear, badly written, badly formatted, or in bad English, edit it into shape. We've always encouraged edits that improve spelling, grammar, and clarity. Make every question count!
This is a great opportunity to build up a body of answers to common Star Wars-related questions that will be super-popular in the coming weeks as the Blu-Ray is released and people go ape over Star Wars again. These questions will bring in lots of traffic from search engines and if Science Fiction & Fantasy.SE continues to have great answers like we have had in the past, we stand a chance of attracting some great new users who will add value for years to come!
Note: This tactic has been shamelessly adapted from Joel's promotion to build new content for Apple SE and Robert's to build Parenting. Let's show them we can do it too!
