DatesEdit

Hey, good job. I have four Adventure Journals (1, 2, 8, and 12, I think), and I can add the ones from those later if no one else does. Also, it might be good if these included the dates. -- Ozzel 18:02, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

  • I have Journals starting with #4 or so, and I can add more later (I'm not at home right now). Do you mean the dates of publication in our own universe, or the dates given in the in-universe news articles? I couldn't tell what the in-universe dates were supposed to mean; they look like gibberish to me. Is there something I'm missing? — SavageBob 19:56, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
    • To the best of my knowledge, this is how to read the codes (I'll use "Jatz Musician Roi Debuts New Slug," p. 249 of SWAJ#11, as the example, since articles don't always include all of this information in their code). The first part is the date, in year:month:day format, with the year being that since the Great ReSynchronization; in this case, day 14 of the eighth month of year 37 after the ReSynch. The second part is the newsfeed - in this case, GLR for GaLactic Resorts. I haven't figured out the next part (J25L) yet. Next is the location of the feed - system, numerical position of planet in system, and city on that planet; thus, GRC.4.ARC tells us what we're told at the beginning of the article, that it originates in the city of Arcopola on the fourth planet of the Greccia system (Note that, at the time, it seems the authors thought that Coruscant was the first planet in its system). Next is the department of the article; in this case, "ENT" for entertainment. Last comes the name of the author. jSarek 21:14, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
      • Wow, I never even suspected the stuff actually had any meaning. Do you mind writing all that up in the article itself? It's good information that should be in the general article on the GGNN feature! — SavageBob 21:33, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

In-universe?Edit

Should this article be recast as an in-universe piece, with either the OOU moved to the Behind the Scenes section or to a separate article, much as was done for HoloNet News? jSarek 00:51, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Well, I think the way we're listing them is the most convenient one, and it's out of universe based on the specific Journal issue. And skimming the Sudlow article suggests that there really is no in-universe entity called "Galaxywide NewsNets". There are NewsNets, however, and an in-universe article should be written for that topic, if one hasn't already. (Guess I'll find out when I save the page and see if it's a blue or red link.) — SavageBob 01:10, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

The Truce at Bakura SourcebookEdit

There are also 3 Galaxywide NewsNets articles in the The Truce at Bakura Sourcebook. Should I add them to the list or is it only about the Adv. Journal ones? Killik Brain 10:03, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

I'd say go ahead and add them. We can clarify at the top of the page that sometimes this feature was used in other WEG projects, too. — SavageBob 15:49, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Hallomar Edit

Hallomar is listed under Adventure Journal 7 as a location, but it links to a man. Should a page be created for that place?--Been L'toth (talk) 05:52, January 20, 2018 (UTC)
