Wookieepedia and DisneyWiki Being AffiliatesEdit
Is it Possible for Wookieepedia and DisneyWiki to be Friends Byzantinefire 21:54, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
Hey, Borsk. How're ya doing? I have a request for you...
Since we've now reached 100,000 articles, I'm planning on writing an article for Wookieepedia NewsNet reflecting on how we got this far by looking back at the earliest days of the Wook. To that end, I'm contacting as many of the oldest (unflattering term, I know. Sorry) Wookieepedians as possible and asking them to chime in.
This is (intentionally) a pretty broad question, but I'm wondering if you can tell me about your early experiences on the Wook and your impressions of what the site was like during its first couple years. Something longer than a soundbite but shorter than a short story, since I'm hoping to quote as many people as I can. Humor and wit are of course encouraged. If you're interested, go nuts, and if you're not, no worries. Thanks, and have a good day! Menkooroo (talk) 15:47, January 12, 2013 (UTC)
Star Wars: KOTOR problemsEdit
I installed the game and I did play for atleast 2 hours. BUt when I stopped and left home when I tried to play again it did start but then it said there is a proble and I couldn't play. Do you know anything about how I can fix it or if someone else does? --JordanaBrewsterFAN 08:47, January 22, 2013 (UTC)
Appearance edits Edit
I recently did a cursory update of the Appearances in One Last Night in the Mos Eisley Cantina: The Tale of the Wolfman and the Lamproid and I have a few questions about your recent edit to them.
First off, as a minor point, I avoided adding the flashback tag as this story is somewhat unique in the canon since they are not true flashbacks given the jumbled timestream, since Sivrak's timeline is progressing linearly through the story, while jumping back and forth through the normal timeline. I think both are somewhat correct, but I didn't care to make a judgement either way.
Second, you changed some links that were correct to point to redirects rather than the correct page, i.e. [[Leia Organa Solo|Leia Organa]] to [[Leia Organa]] or [[Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina]] to [[Mos Eisley Cantina]]
Most importantly, you also straight up removed some valid appearances, such as the Imperial Fleet, Astromech droid, Lightsaber, and many more. When I did my update, I was mostly splicing the existing list with the "What links here" page, not going to the source material. In checking your changes I looked up a few and can agree with some of the removals, but there are a bunch of obvious ones that should not have been removed.
So...what's up with that?
Tem Eliss in Essential Guide to Alien SpeciesEdit
Hello, Borsk. A long time ago, you added The Essential Guide to Alien Species to Tem Eliss's source list. I've been carefully reviewing the Guide several times, yet I still cannot find the elusive allusion to Eliss (Lots of mentions to another sentientologist, Hoole, who wrote the Guide in-universe, but none to Eliss). Do you remember where it was? Thank you in advance, --Skippy Farlstendoiro (talk) 16:58, March 22, 2013 (UTC)
- Page 89 - the Nikto entry - features an excerpt from Eliss's University of Sanbra Guide to Intelligent Life. --Borsk Fey'lya Talk 09:49, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Someone's been mucking about with the wiki! Edit
Hello. Hope you are well. now, let's get on... Somehow the wiki name seems to have been changed to "Memory Aurek" and somebody posted up a load of random Star Trek articles. There is also a page simply entitled "Star Trek" whose only text is as follows: <Quote^There are rumors that the new star wars movie could be a crossover between star wars and star trek.^Unquote>. I'm not sure if you have been trolled or vandalized, but nowhere in the entire wiki does anything mention an integration of this and the star trek wiki, so it seems likely. Please leave any reply on my talk page at some point, I will check once a week.
This message brought to you a guy who thinks Star Wars could take on any other sci-fi universe and win - Except 40k, which would just agree to be friends with them because it is equally awesome. Text and formatting supplied by Wookieepedia editing tool. Have a good day.
- Checked it, but there's nothing. --Borsk Fey'lya Talk 14:57, May 19, 2013 (UTC)
Hey, just curious as to why you made the Force Demon page a redirect to Demon? Force Demon was about the species while the Demon page is about the term itself. Thanks, Supreme Emperor (talk) 17:21, July 6, 2013 (UTC)
- Because there is no such species as the "Force Demon" and the term was never used in The Pandora Effect, Wutzek is a supernatural being and is simply referred to as a "demon". So I didn't see a point in keeping the page which -by the way- was primarily fanon with speculation about the Rakata/Celestials. --Borsk Fey'lya Talk 17:37, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

Beezer in Fact File 44Edit
Hello Borsk, as I have just made Dansra Beezer another project of mine, does The Official Star Wars Fact File 44 mention anything new about her that you didn't originally mention here? Thanks in advance. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 15:34, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
- There's also a short profile with her CCG card image: Corporal Beezer: Beezer, a slicer from Alderaan, was responsible for communications and ordered to disrupt all Imperial transmissions in case of emergency. --Borsk Fey'lya Talk 15:50, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
Far Orbit in Fact FilesEdit
Hi there. I was wondering if you would mind checking The Official Star Wars Fact File 45 (TUR2, Turbolaser) for any information on the Far Orbit? Thanks in advance, 501st dogma(talk) 12:13, August 7, 2013 (UTC)
- Sorry for the late reply, didn't have much time in the last couple of days to check this out, but here it is:
- Aboard the Far Orbit - a former Imperial Nebulon-B frigate whose crew defected to the Rebel Alliance, and the first ship that attacked Imperial worlds in the Core - a unique and brilliant concept was used: The turbolasers were linked to the ship's reactor, which gave the Far Orbit almost unlimited firepower as long as the blaster gas supply did not run out. The result proved to be quite devastating for the Empire and inspired many others to fight for the Rebel cause. --Borsk Fey'lya Talk 13:09, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
Need help with three different statues of SistrosEdit
Hello Borsk! I would like to be an admin on this wiki i think i would do great if not please tell me why!
- I help protect pages
- I contribute more as an admin
- I love star wars!
Thank you get back to me as fast as you can!
Enfield in Fact File 37Edit
Hello Borsk, I remember in the past I asked you about whether The Official Star Wars Fact File 37 mentioned Enfield being killed in the Detention Block AA-23 shootout and no text explicitly says that. However, I originally overlooked this, might it have mentioned something like Childsen's attaché was killed in that shootout, or something else that clearly corresponds to Enfield? Another possibility is the Navy troopers who accompanied Vader to Leia's interrogation room were killed in that shootout? On Yodapedia, Sompeetalay said the Fact Files confirmed Enfield's death, so I am not so quick to dismiss the info here as just an assumption. Thanks. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 07:21, November 8, 2013 (UTC)
- Late reply, sorry for that, been quite busy in RL... The Fact File doesn't confirm that anyone died in the AA-23 shootout. It only says the troopers Childsen had detached to the detention block were "caught off-guard" and "defeated". There's nothing more explicit than this. --Borsk Fey'lya Talk 13:50, December 8, 2013 (UTC)
Faa in Episode I Adventures 10: Festival of WarriorsEdit
Hey Borsk. Glad to still see you helping out. I've been working on scalefish articles for GA status for the barn-burner and have run into the issue of needing to confirm a rare source, such as in the case of Adventures 10. From what I gathered, you appear to possess this source based on an edit from several years ago to that article that added the appearance of faa. I need to confirm this existence of this creature in this source and whether there are any additional details that can be referred to in the article. Thank you much. -- Riffsyphon1024 10:04, January 21, 2014 (UTC)
- I'll just leave this here since I'm a little bit in a hurry: --Borsk Fey'lya Talk 16:11, January 21, 2014 (UTC)
|Source: Episode I Adventures 10: Festival of Warriors, Chapter 2|
At the bottom of Lake Umberbool, the festival arena's construction was complete. Gungan laborers had worked overtime to repair the bubbles that had been damaged by the seismic storm, and the bubbles were ready to receive the many contestants and spectators. One habitat bubble's lights attracted a school of three dozen faa fish, drawing them toward the structure's convex exterior. As the faa neared one of the arched portal zones that lined the bubble, a long and lean arm with mottled pink skin poked through the portal and reached out into the cool water. The portal's hydrostatic membrane shimmered, rippling around the arm, preventing the fish from getting a clear view of the figure inside. With their limited intelligence, the faa might have recognized that the arm belonged to a Gungan, but they were more interested in what the arm offered. The unidentified four fingers gripped a thick, food-covered spoon, tempting the hungry fish to swim even closer to the portal zone.
Just as the fish swam toward the spoon, another hand shot out through the bubble's membrane and snatched a full-grown faa. The fish scattered as the captured faa and the spoon were yanked back through the portal and into the bubble.
Standing inside, a very happy Jar Jar Binks gripped the spoon and the squirming faa fish. Water dripped from his arms and spattered on the tiled kitchen floor.
"Mouie mouie!" Jar Jar gasped as he looked at the plump faa. "Yousa ganna make one tasty treat for mesa empty stomach."
In all his excitement, Jar Jar did not hear the approach of Brass Marshoo's footsteps. Brass Marshoo, a retired Gungan Grand Army general, was in charge of the bubble's organically engineered kitchen, and he kept a watchful eye on Jar Jar. As the general entered the kitchen, carrying a heavy supply of globular pots and deep-dish pans, he saw immediately that Jar Jar was away from his work station. "Jar Jar Binks!" he yelled. "What yousa doin by dat portal?"
While Brass Marshoo placed the pots and pans on top of a wide oval work table, Jar Jar quickly hid the floundering faa behind his back. "What's it look like mesa doin'?" Jar Jar asked as he held out the wet wooden spoon with his left hand. "Mesa just rinsin' dis food-scooper in da lake."
Brass Marshoo scowled. "Yousa bean ordered to keepaway from da portal zones. Yousa suppos-ed to putter da food-scoopers in da recyclopper tank." Brass Marshoo pointed to a wide, open-topped cylindrical aquarium on the other side of the kitchen. Inside the aquarium was a recyclopper - a bloated, spike-covered one-eyed fish used by the Gungans as a sort of garbage disposal.
Jar Jar aimed the spoon at the portal. "Sorry, Brass. Dat recyclopper was lookin mighty overstuff-ed, and my was afraid hisen whole body might go ker-plooie iffen hisen gobbelup any more leftovers. Den my notice-ed a skoola hungry-lookin lettal bitty fish swimmin by da portal. My just stick me arm out da portal so dem little fish can hep demselves to leftovers."
"Rilly?" asked the suspicious Brass Marshoo. "So yousa say in dat yousa just feeden da hungry fish as dey passen by?"
"Dat's correct, it tis," Jar Jar grinned. Inside the nearby tank, the recyclopper belched.
"Berry berry intrestink," Brass Marshoo said. "Den mesa supposen yousa no mind showin my what yousa grippen ina yousa udder hand."
"Say what?" Jar Jar's eyestalks angled toward the spoon clasped in his left hand. "Mesa just grippen dis food-scooper."
"Mesa say yousa udder hand," Brass Marshoo repeated. "Da hand yous got hiden behind yousa back."
Jar Jar brought his right hand out from behind his back to reveal the faa fish. At the sight of the struggling fish, Jar Jar's eyes went wide. "Hey, where dis fishy come from?" Jar Jar asked, trying his best to sound surprised. He held the fish close to his face to examine it. "Why ... while mesa feedin' da fishes, dis big sticky one musta ax-adently swimm-ed smack inta mesa fingers!" Brass Marshoo shook his head. "Metinks no axadent, Binks. You know dares no munchen on da job. Return dat fish tada lake pronto, den get back to worken."
Sadly, Jar Jar stuck the fish through the portal and released it back to the lake. As he watched the faa swim away, Jar Jar saw a submersible speeding toward the bubble. He recognized the sub and felt his stomach tie into a knot.
3.2 Corrected tense Edit
Hi, I hope this is the right place for this. I found contradicting info on Caprioril Massacre. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Caprioril_Massacre states that it occured around Between 0 ABY and 3 ABY and http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ignar_Ominaz confirms it, as does http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Amel_Bakli
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Shren_Whist says that he died at the same event but in 22 BBY and http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Caprioril chronologicalally puts it between 23 BBY and 22 BBY. I know, CSI right? Can you please chek what's the exact timeline, if there is any? Thanks.--Dzem23 (talk) 15:57, January 29, 2014 (UTC)
Hey Borsk. I was wondering if you could check the Fact Files for a mention of a crab-harp. I don't actually know the specific file. However, having looked at your fact file index, I would guess that it may be in the Music and Musicians part of 131, the Warmaster Lah entry for 109, or in the Yuuzhan Vong entry in 40. Those would be my best guesses, but they could be elsewhere. If you can't find it, don't worry. Thanks for your time, 501st dogma(talk) 01:29, February 16, 2014 (UTC)
- This sounds like a crab-harp: Borsk Fey'lya Talk 08:51, February 16, 2014 (UTC)
Source: The Official Star Wars Fact File 131 (MUS2, Music and Musicians)
The extragalactic alien species the Yuuzhan Vong have also developed music, although, as with all of their technology, their instruments are bioengineered from living matter. One widely used instrument consists of a pair of long-limbed crustaceans with their limbs locked in an extended position. These are joined to the body of an enormous drum-shaped creature by tendons which stretch taut, like translucent harp strings, creating both resonators and a sounding board. The ethereal, other-worldly sounds created by these living instruments accompany the Yuuzhan Vong priests during their rituals.
Song of WarEdit
- Page 1 lists the ship in his infobox under Vehicles, Page 2 has this: Despite these setbacks [deaths of his first love and his brother], Isolder has managed to endure and rise to a level of prominence rare in such a matriarchal society, from commanding the Hapan Battle Dragon Song of War to patrolling the borders in the Storm, a custom made Miy'til-fighter. ...and that's it. --Borsk Fey'lya Talk 18:41, March 29, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you for the umtienth time, but would you find seeing what The Official Star Wars Fact File 106 (ANO1-2, Nom Anor) has for Nom Anor?

I have found you as a recently active administrator here on Wookiepedia. I have a question on the acceptability of my signature. Can my signature be at all permitted? It follows the signature guidelines laid out on other wikis, and I would rather not have to modify it Wikia-wide.
Hi, I was wondering if you could change the 'Old Daka' page into a Canon page?
