Move page[edit source]

I think this page should be moved to The Child. Per the subtitles, episode 1 calls it "the asset" (lowercase), and episode 2 calls it "The Child" (capital). - Cwedin(talk) 18:57, November 15, 2019 (UTC)

name?[edit source]

with "Yoda", and "yadl" being the only 2 known examples of that species I propose "Yado" as the childs least until it gets an official name. lol. 06:19, November 16, 2019 (UTC)Daehock-Dagonson

Im calling it, the empire want him because[edit source]

his force healing power, so they can bring palpatine back to life....I have a longer theory that also explains why they wanted him cloned and why it was wanted dead or alive too, but yeah, ROSW does not explain why palps is still alive, perhaps they did not want to spoil the mandalorian?

For now, We should call him baby yoda. Unsigned comment by ToughChoice2008 (talk • contribs).

Mandalorian[edit source]

Okay, so I'm extremely confused here. The Child is confirmed to be part of a Mandalorian clan, has been called twice now a Mandalorian foundling, and Chapter 8 establishes that Mandalorians are not strictly human (in open defiance of what the current Mandalorian page on this wiki declares). The Child uses a Mandalorian-theme infobox, but every time I have tried to put (Mandalorian) next to its species, like all of the other members of the Mandalorian culture, it gets reverted. Why? GokūBlack10 (Talk) 21:49, December 28, 2019 (UTC)

  • If the situation regarding what actually is a Mandalorian has now changed, wouldn't it be more appropriate to list Mandalorian under his affiliations rather than species? --Lewisr (talk) 22:00, December 28, 2019 (UTC)
    • Yeah I think you've both got the right idea. If it's been established non-humans can be adopted into Mandalorian family groups, we can update the Mandalorian page to reflect that. The little guy's page should be updated also, but I'm not sure if it belongs in the species field or affiliation. We do have races noted such as Ben Solo's species being denoted as "Human (Chandrilan)," but I'm not sure if it fits in species field for this character, since he is a unique example among his species.

    • All valid points. I just wanted to see what I was doing wrong so I didn't continue to make it! Thanks guys. GokūBlack10 (Talk) 22:16, December 28, 2019 (UTC)

Vandalism and possible Protection[edit source]

I have realized that there is an excessive amount of vandalism taking place on this article. Might I suggest protecting this page so that only registered users may edit the article? The recent edits have been by users that are not registered to Fandom, and most have been vandalism. --Erebus Chronus (talk) 22:20, December 31, 2019 (UTC)

  • There has been a little increase, but for the moment I think no protection is necessary, if it started getting excessive over a prolonged period of time then it would be the right time, but so far it doesn't seem to be so bad --Lewisr (talk) 22:52, December 31, 2019 (UTC)
    • I understand. It would only be how I would deal with the situation because it is a fairly popular character and people may begin to vandalize it by suggesting it be named to "baby Yoda" instead of "The Child". Only a suggestion, but thank you for replying to my message. --Erebus Chronus (talk) 22:56, December 31, 2019 (UTC)
      • Yeah I understand what you mean, the potential is there but lets it won't come to that --Lewisr (talk) 23:00, December 31, 2019 (UTC)
        • Admins are keeping an eye on this page, don't worry. So far it seems that its just one user that has been constantly adding nonsense to the page, but with multiple accounts. In reality there hasn't been a lot of vandalism here. Also requests for protection are done here Wookieepedia:Requests for protection, that way it doesn't get lost in the Recent Changes.--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 23:05, December 31, 2019 (UTC)
          • Of course there's a place to request protection, but thank you in advance for informing me of the location to make requests, I'm still learning a lot of things about Wookieepedia as I joined back in October of this year. So from now on, I'll remember to go make requests there, and I knew the admins were probably keeping an eye on this article, but thank you for telling me this, you've eased my worries. --Erebus Chronus (talk) 23:20, December 31, 2019 (UTC)
              • We really should consider to put this article underneath protection. It's really annoying to deal with all this vandalism. --Supreme Commander Raxus (talk) 19:34, January 2, 2020 (UTC)

Main image[edit source]

Wouldn't it make sense for the article's main picture to be, say, an official screencap of the character instead of what is obviously a promotional picture of a toy? It's not like there's a shortage of official The Child imagery, right? 12:45, March 29, 2020 (UTC)
