Forums > Senate Hall > SH:Canon status of a specific article

I know that there is an older discussion here about clarifying some rules about Canon, but I'm asking about the canon status of info in this specific article:

StarWars.com Die wanna wanga: Encounters of the Twi'lek kind on StarWars.com (backup link)

This article is obviously out-of-universe, but it was published in August 2014. It ALMOST exclusively discusses Canon characters and sources listing Twi'leks, except for two. Lunae Minx and Shakka mentioned here at least appear in a Canon movie, but were only named in Legends. The article itself brings up the soon-to-appear Hera Syndulla, plus the final paragraph refers to certain "Legends" characters as if they are separate from those listed above. The main point here is, should the names of Lunae Minx and Shakka be Canon because of this article? -JMM (talk) 15:22, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

  • I would advise against using editorial content to cite canonical information. We've already had a situation where a blog post written by a freelance writer was incorrectly taken as a reliable source. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 15:31, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
