Shadow of Revan crates[edit source]

  • Shadow of Revan has come out along with several SOR (shadow of revan) themed crates in the Cartel Market. What appearance should the items from the crates go under? SW:TOR or SW:TOR:SOR?--RazulAntiwield (talk) 05:10, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
    • How about neither? Seriously. The Cartel Market stuff doesn't need articles, the actual content from the game does. Either admit that you don't have the game and stop, or start contributing the actual content. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 05:12, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
      • I am talking about stuff like the blasters. I do have the game for the millionth time. I make articles on this stuff because nobody else will. How could I possibly learn of all these items from the game if I do not have it?--RazulAntiwield (talk) 05:16, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
        • Because they're online. And I'm serious. None of those blasters or weapons need articles. There are 2471 articles that need creation on characters, locations, and items that actually need articles, not the generically-named MMO fodder that you're talking about.

          • But if they have real names then they do deserve articles. Other people have made pages on things like this before I came along. I also simply do not have skill. I love Star Wars but I am not good at grammar, spelling, and whatever so I cannot make much apart from these.--RazulAntiwield (talk) 05:22, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
          • If you really do not want me making articles on this game then I will just go ahead and start up on random books that I have lying around.--RazulAntiwield (talk) 05:24, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
          • I was going to make an article on the YV-23 Starforged blaster when this question popped up. I mean stuff like that. Have you seen me making articles on stuff with generic names like the Cerean heavy repeating blaster? Answer me Cade. Some of the stuff that I make articles on could be lost to time when the crates die or the item is removed from the cartel Market.--RazulAntiwield (talk) 05:32, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
            • Because that's still a generic, random name. Most of the weapons you've created are the same except for a single letter, number, or word changed, and those articles present no benefit here. If you're having trouble writing articles, then practice is the only way to be better, and you're not helping yourself by copy-pasting articles and slightly changing the details. Again, there are over 2,000 redlinks far more deserving of time and effort than any randomly-named blaster. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 05:35, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
              • If you really do hate these articles so much then why not make a vote on the consensus track to delete them? You really discourage me from making those articles yet you do nothing to actually stop people from making them.--RazulAntiwield (talk) 05:41, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
                • If you keep ignoring me then I will just put it under SW:TOR since it is not really part of the expansion anyway.--RazulAntiwield (talk) 05:52, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
                  • Well maybe I will start up a mix of books and SW:TOR since I have been quite bored recently.--RazulAntiwield (talk) 06:07, December 16, 2014 (UTC)

Canon[edit source]

This may be a dumb question, but if this expansion is non-canon, then why does the Lucasfilm Story Group appear in the credits? Paladin117 (talk) 00:26, May 27, 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure if there's an official answer. However, I think it's probably pretty straightforward. The Holocron continuity database, run by Story Group member Leland Chee, is split into Canon and Legends almost exactly like Wookieepedia is. It's run in much the same way in that regard. So Lucasfilm still has an extensive database of Legends information and continuity. Pablo Hidalgo is also a walking encyclopedia. And odds are, Lucasfilm would want to keep track of SWTOR storylines. They may not impact Canon, but I would imagine Lucasfilm wouldn't want anything in the game to fly in the face of the new films (in order to avoid audience confusion). As such, Story Group members can help with the development of the last remaining and ongoing Legends story. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 01:19, May 27, 2015 (UTC)
  • Just because something is considered Legends content does not mean that Lucasfilm doesn't have a say in the storyline. They may not contribute for future expansions. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong. ShatterClub|Talk to me, internet 03:17, May 27, 2015 (UTC)
