New Canon articles Edit

Hello, Alientraveller. When creating Canon articles, please make sure to verify that the article's title is indeed reflected in a new canon source. I notice you created the article Beru Whitesun Lars. However, as far as I can see, the character is never called "Beru Whitesun Lars" in any of the listed source material. It seems the defunct SW.com Encyclopedia and the new Databank only ever call her "Beru Whitesun" or "Beru Lars," the latter of which should be the name of the subject's Canon article. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 20:46, July 10, 2014 (UTC)

I wasn't sure which one to go with so I felt it'd be uncontroversial to just have it be a split of the then-only article. Thanks for the heads-up, I should've just gone with the Databank. --Alientraveller (talk) 21:07, July 10, 2014 (UTC)

Re:Year/Canon Edit

Why hello, Alientraveller! I'm sorry I didn't answer you message earlier, but it seems I postponed my answer to a later date and basically forgot to do so. Of course, we'll have to create a canon "year" article at some point. However, the problem is that we have no canon source that allows us to say a year is "the time it takes for a planet to complete an orbit of its sun." That's quite sad, actually. :-( I guess the only things we can say canonically is that a year is a period of time that contains a number of days, and that 1000 years are called a millennium. Cheers! --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 12:19, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

Tense Edit

We appreciate your effort to improve Wookieepedia, but please be advised that all articles on in-universe topics are written in past tense. Please see the manual of style if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. Thanks. <-Omicron(Leave a message at the BEEP!) 14:48, May 1, 2015 (UTC)

Message received and understood. --Alientraveller (talk) 14:57, May 1, 2015 (UTC)

New page infoboxes Edit

Hey Alientraveller, I noticed you created a new page, Mission to Zygerria. It seems you may have copied/pasted the legends article before adjusting as needed. If this is what happened, you have duplicated a mistake from that page, and the new page has been added to a maintenance category due to missing parameters. I have fixed it in this instance, but please keep in mind for future to use the standard preloads located below the infobox - it takes a minute to copy/cut/paste information from the other infobox, or copy/cut the missing parameters from the preload into the infobox. This saves other editors (such as myself) from fixing this issue, and possibly a third or fourth from filling in the missing info. Currently there are over 15,000 articles with this issue, I am working through and fixing them but it takes time - if I fix 10 articles a day on average, it will still take a couple years to empty the category. Nothing too serious so don't stress, just some advice to keep in mind for future :) Have a great week! Manoof (talk) 09:58, June 24, 2015 (UTC)

Canon article creation/expansionEdit

Canon articles are not to be made by copy and pasting content from Legends articles, but simply removing Legends details, links, and sources. They must be written from scratch. While some information may be shared between Canon and Legends, copying from Legends is not always accurate, is poor editing practice (plagiarism is never allowed), and is not to be done. Trip391 (talk) 21:30, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

OK, this is the first I've seen anyone frown on this quick-and-dirty method on getting those canon articles out there, but I am going to try to write more in my own words. --Alientraveller (talk) 21:52, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

Edit summary commentaryEdit

Hi Alientraveller. I saw your edit summary here and just wanted to make a note about it real quick. While I don't think you meant anything bad by it, an edit summary that just says 'so many errors' isn't helpful to the person who made the errors. A better tactic would be to actually write out which errors you're fixing in the edit summary, or even leave the user a talk page message letting them know what you fixed and how they can avoid those minor mistakes in the future. A user who just sees "so many errors" could take that the wrong way, and it could be discouraging for them. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:31, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

My bad. --Alientraveller (talk) 21:52, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

Canon TCW articles Edit

Hey Alientraveller. When creating canon TCW event articles, I would strongly encourage you to create the canon version from scratch, instead of copy-pasting the content of the Legends page and then individually correcting every single detail, as I suspect you're doing. In the case of the latter, it's extremely easy to miss certain details and formatting mistakes, whereas creating the canon article from scratch forces you to double-check every detail of the canon article to ensure that no mistakes are made. Thanks. CC7567 (talk) 22:09, June 29, 2015 (UTC)

  • Yes, the "Shades of Reason" Episode Gallery uses the term and capitalizes it as "Sundari Royal Palace." CC7567 (talk) 22:26, June 29, 2015 (UTC)
    • That being said, and it'd be good to have CC's input here -- do we really need a separate event for the duel in the royal palace? I see no reason why, in either canon or Legends, it needs to be a separate event page from Battle of Sundari. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:29, June 29, 2015 (UTC)
      • But it was a separate battle. Palpatine attacked Maul after the chaos in Sundari subsided following Obi-Wan's escape. And thanks CC. --Alientraveller (talk) 22:36, June 29, 2015 (UTC)
        • I don't think it was a separate battle. The Legends page even lists it as happening concurrently. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:37, June 29, 2015 (UTC)
          • Brandon: because the articles were taken to a Trash Compactor thread, they might require a second vote for the merge to happen as you suggest. I'm currently double-checking the site's policies to get the specifics. CC7567 (talk) 22:38, June 29, 2015 (UTC)
            • Thanks for the info -- though technically speaking, that would/should only apply to the Legends pages since that's what the TC was about. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:39, June 29, 2015 (UTC)
              • Since the TC discussion didn't reach consensus, the articles can be merged without the need for another vote. I don't have the time to merge the articles right now, but one of you is welcome to do so yourself. CC7567 (talk) 22:48, June 29, 2015 (UTC)
                • Thanks CC. I'll take a look at it in an hour or so if you don't get to it first. At the very least, we can say for now that we don't need "Duel at the Sundari Royal Palace/Canon." - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:50, June 29, 2015 (UTC)

Reporting vandalism Edit

When reverting vandalism, please take time to inform an administrator of the ongoing incident. You can either contact an admin on their talk page, report the vandalism in our IRC channel, or report it on the Vandalism in progress page. Otherwise, there is no guarantee it will be noticed and responded to appropriately. Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 21:35, January 5, 2016 (UTC)

Hi Alientraveller, I confess, it's not canon! Mr Stephens is a character from Eddie Izzard's comedy sketch, 'Death Star Canteen'. However, Adam Driver's performance as Kylo Ren on Saturday Night Live in 'Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base' made it almost feel like it! Could it not get quietly moved to the 'Legends' pages (I don't know how to do all that, I'm afraid), where no-one would ever know, and Mr Stephens would get his just recognition? You're my only hope!--5.68.81.4 14:14, January 17, 2016 (UTC)

In addition to what Toprawa said above, please remember to warn vandals using one of our warning templates. This helps us catch repeat offenders as well as giving the user an opportunity to stop. 1358 (Talk) 18:43, January 23, 2016 (UTC)

Whoops Edit

Never mind, that's my mistake. I glanced over the whole sentence :P Darth Ravigious (talk) 02:08, January 27, 2016 (UTC)

Happy birthday Edit

To you. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 03:26, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

LMAO, it was actually my birthday last week. Do I come across as that much of a Mando fan? It's Lucasfilm Animation's fault for making them and Maul the crux of TCW. --Alientraveller (talk) 14:10, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

JB-007Edit

May I ask, why did you delete the information I put on the page about the Daniel Craig Stormtrooper? It is true that his name is JB-007. It was confirmed! So you taking it away is vandalism for this site.

Dr. Legendary (talk) 17:41, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

That's rich. You added that Abrams confirmed the stormtrooper's codename. He did not. Please provide a reliable source. --Alientraveller (talk) 17:44, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

DVD features Edit

Hey. This is going to seem odd, and I agree that it is, but I wanted to let you know that we don't include DVD features from before April 25, 2014 in Sources sections of canon articles. They can be used as references in behind the scenes material, but not as in-universe sources since information within them could actually be material that was meant to align with Legends. So when you're using behind the scenes features from The Clone Wars DVD sets, please note that they can only be used as a source of behind the scenes info. It's weird, I know, but that's the community consensus right now. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:14, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

You're kidding! Thanks for letting me know anyway. I assume this is regarding the Mandalorian crusaders helmet. I hope it's not too controversial given we know the crusaders are canon, and that's what they look like, and Dave was just pointing out that helmet which does resemble the murals. --Alientraveller (talk) 21:22, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

Welcome template Edit

Please substitute the welcome template whenever you use it. See Template:W for further instructions. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 19:08, February 4, 2016 (UTC)

Re:Think you forgot somethingEdit

Hey Alien. Yeah, I had moved the Legends Vulture's Claw page to Vulture's Claw/Legends and had meant to create the canon version of the page, however this week ended up being extremely busy for me and I didn't get around to doing it. If you'd like, you can make the canon version of the page; if not, I should have a chance to make it tonight (if not then, definitely tomorrow). Cevan IMPpress (talk) 19:30, February 6, 2016 (UTC)

Talk:SnokeEdit

So topics aren't allowed to be debated on this site Unsigned comment by Jason4444 (talk • contribs).

Correct, consult Template:Talkheader. --Alientraveller (talk) 03:55, February 8, 2016 (UTC)

/Canon articles Edit

Hey Alientraveller. I've noticed that you've been making several canon articles at /Canon over the last few days. Before making any more, I would suggest moving the Legends articles to /Legends first, so that the canon articles can be created at the original title, without /Canon. It's also good practice to update all Legends links as part of the process, so if you don't feel up to doing so manually, you can ask Cade or someone else with a bot to help you fix the links. Overall, this habit saves a lot of work down the road for other users (usually admins) who have to move the pages to their proper spots and also fix the links, so I'd encourage you to do so in the future. Thanks! CC7567 (talk) 04:19, February 20, 2016 (UTC)

  • The method Alientraveller is using is actually the method Cade has asked us to use. See here. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:25, February 20, 2016 (UTC)
    • There is a point though, if an article doesn't have that many links I could easily change them all. --Alientraveller (talk) 09:04, February 20, 2016 (UTC)
      • I would go with what Cade has asked. It's easier to have an established process. If other people see you doing it the old way, they may think it's ok to always do that. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 15:23, February 20, 2016 (UTC)
        • Apologies about the confusion. Do what Cade asked, since it's more efficient. Regarding the Vader redirect, the CT vote on defaulting redirects to canon pages has not been passed yet. The CT's first vote (making canon pages as default) was implemented early by consensus at an emergency Mofference, but that was a special case due to real-world timing with the release of TFA. It's a technicality, but the current policy is still to have redirects point to Legends pages, so that needs to be followed until the ongoing CT is approved. CC7567 (talk) 22:58, February 21, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you Alientraveller, i didn't know it. I'll be carefull next time. --Cloneablestar (talk) 21:38, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Lightsaber Pikes Edit

You might want to rethink the reversion of my edit to that page. Pablo Hidalgo seems to think that Bane's pike was canon, especially since Episode Guides are canon as well. https://twitter.com/pablohidalgo/status/712874854492540928 The Ultimate Dude (talk) 01:46, March 25, 2016 (UTC)

In the Darth Sidious (canon) appearances, I just edit his appearance in episode Sartiscrifie (my grammar) in Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008), "as Sidious". I need the others one should be edited too (if Sidious was identified as Palpatine to the new comers from the early seasons, then note it on the first episode).
