I recall around 2001-2003 time period there was a fan-created Star Wars website that made a lot of claims about the Star Wars universe, supposedly through insider knowledge/sources. The site opened after the initial theatrical release of Episode I, but before Episode II.
Some examples of the "insider" claims were:
- Yoda was originally thought to be the Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force.
- There were allegedly yellow lightsabers that were strong enough to cut through all other lightsabers.
There were many others that I can't recall.
It turned out many of his claims were false, and I think many fans in the Star Wars community called him out for making up stories and publishing them on his site. He was essentially riding off of Star Wars fans' excitement over the new Star Wars movies that were being released. I may have found out about it through TheForce.net.
I can't recall this person's handle or website. I don't think he was publishing any of this on any forum; he used his website for all his stories. He may have had the word "Dark" somewhere in his handle. Does anyone remember this individual and/or website?
