Talk pages[edit source]

Please do not remove comments from talk pages as they must stay as part of the public record. Thank you. Supreme Emperor (talk) 13:51, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

  • You were just warned for this. Don't do it again. IFYLOFD (Enter the Floydome) 00:34, June 13, 2013 (UTC)
    • IFYLOFD, I didn't know I couldn't edit my very own user page. No need to be aggressive. I'm still learning the Wookieepedian habits and customs. DKS MaXoO (talk) 01:30, June 13, 2013 (UTC)
      • It applies to every talk page, including your own. Sorry if I came off a little aggressive, it's just that this is a somewhat common problem and I don't have a whole lot of patience for it. IFYLOFD (Enter the Floydome) 01:36, June 13, 2013 (UTC)
        • Apology accepted. Maybe these two articles/quotes can help you understand why I should have the right to edit my own talk page as I want:
  • Wikipedia: Removal of comments, notices, and warnings :

"Policy does not prohibit users, whether registered or unregistered users, from removing comments from their own talk pages, although archiving is preferred. The removal of material from a user page is normally taken to mean that the user has read and is aware of its contents. There is no need to keep them on display and usually users should not be forced to do so."

"If a user removes a comment from their own talk page it should not be restored. By removing the comment the user has verified that they have read it. The comment is still in the page history, so it is not necessary to keep it visible just to show that the user received the message. It is also wrong to force them to keep it there as a sort of "Badge of Shame"." DKS MaXoO (talk) 02:42, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

  • Supreme Emperor, I was about to respond to you on your page. I deleted my comment on the Yavin's Caprice talk page as it was not answered and hence became completely useless after I edited the page. I didn't know it was considered as an act of vandalism to remove my very own comments. Anyway, thank you for looking over my shoulder. Feel free to change the article back to the way it was if you think the Yavin's Caprice should not be considered as a Gymsnor-3 light freighter. DKS MaXoO (talk) 01:30, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Atrivis sector[edit source]

Hello; basically, I undid you edit for the following reasons. Atrivis sector is a Featured Article, which is ascertained by the star tag in the upper right corner. As such, the page has gone through peer review and has to adhere to certain qualities and standards. Your edit introduced at least one unsourced item into the battle section, which is not allowed for Featured Articles. Also, there is no standard layout guide as to how sector battles are laid out in the sector article but the current format of Atrivis was neater in terms of infobox space. The general rule of thumb is to follow the examples laid down in FAs. Granted, this only amounts to two articles - Atrivis and Bozhnee - but these should set the example. Hope that helps. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar.svg(Squadron channel) 21:06, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

  • Hi, thank you for your explanation. I have reviewed every known sector for the last few weeks and they now all have the same layout. The Atrivis sector is the only remaining sector which isn't like the others regarding the sector battles. The current format is not that neat, nor is it in chronological order like it is for the others. I'm going to edit this section again, but this time with all the items correctly sourced, since that is required for a Featured Article. As a Featured Article, the Atrivis sector should be seen as the example to follow, not as the odd one. Best regards. DKS MaXoO (talk) 13:27, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

Rhen Var battles[edit source]

Hi there, I went ahead and removed the merge tag from Attack on Rhen Var. The source specifies that there was two separate events. Cheers, Corellian PremierJedi symbol.svgThe Force will be with you always 14:04, August 31, 2013 (UTC)

Minor edits[edit source]

Hey, DKS, if you're going to go on those major category-adding sprees, which is great, it'd be awesome if you could set those edits to minor while doing so so that they don't clog the RecentChanges. You can toggle all edits to minor in Preferences. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 17:41, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks, I'll do that.--DKS MaXoO (talk) 17:44, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

Good work[edit source]

501st dogma(talk) has awarded you a Wookiee Cookie!
For fixing a slew of category issues, I think you deserve more than a pat on the back

Warning[edit source]

If you're going to change a ton of categories, then I suggest that you pay close attention to the details. Per WP:LG, you must adhere to DEFAULTSORT, which automatically sorts out of the categories. I had to correct two of your errors already. I'm sure there's more, so I suggest that you stop changing more categories and fix your mistakes. Failure to do so would result in a temporary block from editing. Thanks, JangFett (Talk) 13:46, February 3, 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi. I'll use DEFAULTSORT from now on.--DKS MaXoO (talk) 13:52, February 3, 2014 (UTC)
    • You're still not utilizing it properly. Look here: [1]. It should be Bespin, Raid on not Bespin 4 for the DEFAULTSORT. You have to use the actual article name, not some other name. When you use DEFAULTSORT, do not use the formatting for alphabetizing [[Category|Format]]. Just use the category and DEFAULTSORT. JangFett (Talk) 14:17, February 3, 2014 (UTC)
  • Please also pay attention to your formatting. There should not be a blank space between DEFAULTSORT and the category. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 14:54, February 3, 2014 (UTC)
  • Dialog-error.svg You have been blocked from editing for 1 week for continuous insertion of poor quality edits. DKS, during your time off, I strongly encourage you to look around at various articles, our policies and its consensus updates. You continue to overlink, even in status articles, you rarely pay close attention to your mistakes. Making quick short edits won't help you at all. I shouldn't nor should others clean up after you.. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. JangFett (Talk) 22:28, February 3, 2014 (UTC)

Explanation[edit source]

Hello. Apparently, you didn't see the point of these multiple short edits and misunderstood my intentions, so I wanted to explain myself.

First of all, I started these edits in order to clean up the categories for the Battles/Missions of the Galactic Civil War and the Clone Wars. The missions of these two conflicts used to be all mixed up within:

- Category:Battles of the Clone Wars
- Category:Battles of the Galactic Civil War

Missions are usually kept separated from battles when they are too many. This is why I cleaned that up. They are now in the right categories, where they should be:

- Category:Missions of the Clone Wars
- Category:Missions of the Galactic Civil War

Also, these categories and their subcategories are now alphabetized. I alphabetized several other categories too, including the following:

- Category:Missions
- Category:Battles
- Category:Battles of the Yuuzhan Vong War
- and several other subcategories in Category:Battles by conflict

Secondly, I started alphabetizing these categories using the [[Category|Format]] system because it is widely used by users. I was just following the commonly used system. Like probably most of the users, I didn't even know about the DEFAULTSORT system before you told me about it. When you told me about it, I started to use it right away. I believe this was proving my good will in these edits. And after Toprawa and Ralltiir told me not to leave a blank space between DEFAULTSORT and the category, I also started to do so right away.

As you can see on my user talk page, I was awarded a Wookiee Cookiee by 501st dogma for a similar work on Category:Imperial starships, which also consisted of hundreds of quick edits to divide everything into the right subcategories.

I believe my edits in this new project were good. If they weren't, they would have been massively undone by other users. And yet you decided to block my account hours after I was done with this long project. I was quite surprised. As you can imagine, this work was very time-consuming and for the benefit of Wookieepedia. I didn't do it in order to receive some kind of reward, but I really feel like I didn't deserve a blame for it.

Anyway, I'm moving on so I won't do these kinds of multiple short edits again if that annoys you. Understandably, I don't want to get into more trouble because of that. --DKS MaXoO (talk) 21:32, February 11, 2014 (UTC)

WEG[edit source]

Please do not reuse WEG if you come across it. The template has been deprecated, and should be replaced with {{WEGCite}}. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 21:05, May 13, 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the info. I'll change my last edits.--DKS MaXoO (talk) 21:08, May 13, 2014 (UTC)

Categories[edit source]

FYI, if a ship is in a subcat of another category, like a ship in Category:Galactic Republic starships, it does not need to also be in Category:Starships. It is actually already in the category thanks to Category:Galactic Republic starships. Trip391 (talk) 05:21, December 15, 2014 (UTC)

  • I will soon go through Category:Starships to remove anything redundant. Thanks for your help. --DKS MaXoO (talk) 05:28, December 15, 2014 (UTC)

Starships[edit source]

The Pit Droid Award of Diligencefor your tireless work in categorizing starships.

ProfessorTofty (talk) 03:08, February 5, 2015 (UTC)

No "???"[edit source]

Do not add "???" to articles. Also, there should not be a space under an infobox. Trip391 (talk) 06:03, July 7, 2015 (UTC)

Hy i need some help with my post thanks

Not sure if you knew[edit source]

But Prelude to Rebellion 0, which you list on your user page, was recently collected for the first time in Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: Rise of the Sith Volume 2.--ZapikCZ (talk) 16:02, January 8, 2018 (UTC)

  • Thanks!--DKS MaXoO (talk) 16:05, January 8, 2018 (UTC)

Wookieepedian of the Month[edit source]

Congratulations, you've been elected Wookieepedian of the Month for February 2018! Feel free to add {{User WotM}} to your userpage. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 00:14, February 1, 2018 (UTC)

  • Hurray! Thank you very much! --DKS MaXoO (talk) 00:58, February 1, 2018 (UTC)
    • Congrats! --Lewisr (talk) 01:00, February 1, 2018 (UTC)

A Trooper's Tale question[edit source]

I noticed the changes that you were making related to the date referncing of "A Trooper's Tale". Does that source state that it occurs in 22 BBY? If so, how does the source state this?--Exiled Jedi (talk) 16:29, March 4, 2018 (UTC)

  • This story is set before "Heroes on Both Sides" (21 BBY), which marks the debut of revamped appearances for several main characters. Considering that the comics featured in Star Wars Comic UK are published in chronological order, and that "Burn the Behemoth!" is the first comic in the series to feature the new character models, it can be concluded that "A Trooper's Tale" takes place in 22 BBY.--DKS MaXoO (talk) 16:37, March 4, 2018 (UTC)
    • From what you are saying, that date cannot be sourced directly to "A Trooper's Tale." I am also not sure how this means that it has to take place in 22 BBY. Couldn't it take place in 21 BBY as well?--Exiled Jedi (talk) 17:52, March 4, 2018 (UTC)

Backup links[edit source]

Hello! Thanks for your addition to the Trigalis/Legends article! Please note, however, that, per our Sourcing policy, citation templates with external links in them must always include a permanent archival link. Thanks, Imperators II(Talk) 06:18, October 2, 2019 (UTC)

DEFAULTSORT[edit source]

Hello. Please be aware that conjecturally-titled articles should not be capitalized in the DEFAULTSORT template. For example, the "invasion of Tervissis" is an unofficial title and is thus not capitalized as a formal name. Please go back and revise all of your changes in this regard. Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 14:23, February 18, 2020 (UTC)

  • Hello. You might have noticed I'm currently adding more content in the categories Category:Battles by sector and Category:Battles by planet. Concurrently, I'm also correcting the DEFAULTSORT templates of many battles to sort them by alphabetical order in their categories. I accomplish this task by copying and pasting the titles of these articles in the DEFAULTSORT template.
    Please understand it's a huge and monotonous task, so I'm not checking if every single title is conjectural or not. I'm just putting the battles in the right categories, and I sort them by alphabetical order. I'm simply replicating what is commonly done everywhere else on Wookieepedia.
    Also, I was not aware of that very specific rule regarding the DEFAULTSORT template in conjecturally-titled articles. I'll be more careful when I edit comprehensive/good articles in the future. I've just changed "invasion of Tervissis" and "raids on Tervissis" in this regard. However, I won't be able to do that for every ordinary article. This task is already very time-consuming as it is, and changing a capital letter for a small letter simply won't change anything for sorting the articles by alphabetical order in their categories.
    If one of my edits is not to your liking, feel free to improve it. Regarding the "debacle on Ord Torrenze", it's debacle "on", not debacle "of". Please go back and revise your change in this regard. Thank you.--DKS MaXoO (talk) 16:15, February 18, 2020 (UTC)

Archive link[edit source]

Thanks for contributing to Wookieepedia! Please note that your edit to File:Cadinth_Run.jpg added an external link without including a backup link. Our Sourcing policy mandates the inclusion of a permanent archival link in all external links. Instructions for doing this can be found on the respective citation template pages. Thanks!
