Canonicity of the Delegation of 2,000 and the deleted scenesEdit

Although the Delegation of 2,000 scenes were removed from the final version of RotS, should they still be counted as canon? There is nothing in them that contradicts anything else stated in canon, and Meena Tills' Databank page even specifically mentions the Delegation and Petition of 2,000. Although Greedo only appears in a deleted scene in TPM, it is still being regarded as canon on his canon page, even having a portion of his biography about it and TPM listed in his appearances. Should we consider both the Delegation and Petition of 2,000 fully canon as well? Cevan (talk) 19:06, December 6, 2014 (UTC)

They're already being considered canon. This is the canon page. (The Legends pages lack the comma in "2,000", apparently that was recently added.) :P —MJ— Comlink 19:38, December 6, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, probably should've specified a bit more: Should the contents of the Delegation of 2,000 deleted scenes be considered canon? The Delegation and Petition are referenced in canon outside of the deleted scenes, and the scenes don't contradict anything in the movie, so I think they should be counted as canon, however I'd like to see what others think.

Ah. When AOTC was released on DVD, declared a "DVD Undelete" that made all of the deleted scenes canon. Such a declaration was conspicuously and intentionally absent when ROTS came out, not the least of which because there was at least one deleted scene that contradicted other stuff (the "death" of Shaak Ti). So to my understanding, the ROTS deleted scenes are not canon unless explicitly stated otherwise in or by an official source. —MJ— Training Room 00:20, December 7, 2014 (UTC)
That's also my understanding from everything I've been told here before. We're not considering anything that was deleted to be canon unless we get it straight from someone at the top officially associated with Star Wars, such as Chee, that it is. ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:34, December 7, 2014 (UTC)
In that case, should RotS be removed from the appearances section, or at least have something next to it stating it's non-canon or something? Cevan (talk) 00:44, December 7, 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure. I think I have seen other articles where it was listed that way before, but for all I know, those may have been added by you as well. My guess, though, is that it's probably okay, so long as information originating from those scenes isn't actually added to the content of the article.
