Thanks for adding an infobox to Compton. However, infoboxes must include all parameters (see the fix), even if you don't add anything in them. Doing otherwise will tag the page with a maintenance category. Also note that infoboxes are to be referenced like any other part of an article, with <ref></ref>. --NanoLuukeCloning facility 19:25, August 25, 2020 (UTC)

Hi Dat. The page has now been deleted. Ayrehead02 (talk) 13:41, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

  • Thank you very much Dat1899 (talk) 14:02, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Telsij image[]

Please specify the source from which you acquired this image. Simply typing "Lucasfilm" doesn't help anyone. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 10:48, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

  • Well, the image was provided by Leland Chee during his interview with Steve Haruch, and the image was originally from the LucasFilm archives.Dat1899 (talk) 10:50, 15 December 2020 (UTC)
    • That is not publicly available. You clearly acquired this image from somewhere, and you need to list that as the source. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 20:07, 15 December 2020 (UTC)
      • Very well.Dat1899 (talk) 20:08, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

Backup links[]

You have not provided backup links, which is required per Sourcing policy, for the Aveleyman links on Timothy Sinclair and Eiji Kusuhara. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 20:10, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

  • Ok, i'm very sorry, i'll get to it. Really sorry if i come off as annoying, i have no malicious intentions.Dat1899 (talk) 20:13, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

RE:RaidOnBespin Image[]

Hi Dat1899, the image is now deleted. In future please remember to sign your comments with four tildes (~) Ayrehead02 (talk) 20:34, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

    • Thank you.Dat1899 (talk) 20:39, 15 December 2020 (UTC)


Per Policy every single external link needs to have a backup link. For that reason please use the {{Twitter}}, {{FacebookCite}} and {{Cite web}} templates. Please, go back to your edits in the Keyan Farlander article and format them correctly. Thanks--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 08:27, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

  • You still need to use the appropiate templates, please modify your edits. Thanks--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 09:51, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
    • Hello. There's several issues with your edits. First, All categories need to be inside the template for the images, not outside. Please go ahead and rectify that mistake. Second, I remind you to use the templates for all your external links. Lastly, this is your final warning regarding archive links every single external link both in articles and images need to have an archive link, please archive your edits. This is also a reminder to research what its considered a source, because Pinterest is not one--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 01:21, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
      • I was gonna do all of those things anyway. I'll rectify my edits, but just so you know, it will take while.Dat1899 (talk) 06:48, 17 December 2020 (UTC)


Can I ask why you are substituting film images on canon articles with ones of your own? The previous images all came from the film itself, but yours appear to be lower quality. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 11:02, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

  • Well, i saw JMM putting up new images for Canon characters like Dorovio Bold, Palso Thern etc. And i decided to do the same thing. I don't know why my images came out the way they did, likely because of the snipping tool i used Unsigned comment by Dat1899 (talk • contribs).
    • If you're unable to provide a higher quality image than the one currently on the page, it's better to refrain from adding your image. Also, please make sure to add categories to your images, per our Image policy. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 11:13, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Siward Cass[]

Can you provide the page where you got this image from? You have only listed the homepage as the source, which doesn't have the image in it. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 06:13, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Very well, if i have to. I must say, although i leave archive links whenever i upload an image, it seems dozens of hundreds of images don't have an archive link and a reliable source, yet are still used in articles.Dat1899 (talk) 09:01, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
    • Thank you. Can you provide an example of an image without such a source? Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 09:29, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
      • I recall seeing an image of Wedge Antilles without a good source, but i can't seem to find it now, i assume it has been taken down. As for images without archive links, there are literally countless examples. I would make archive links for all of them if i could, as well as backup links for the websites they originated from. But i simply don't have enough time to do that. But i'll still do what i can.Dat1899 (talk) 09:47, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
        • If you're talking about naked links (links not formatted into a template), you're right. There are many files with them since there's currently no way to track them. If you see any of these files, feel free to add backups to them. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 11:33, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

    • Why don't you just get rid opf me and get it over with so i won't bother you, your highness

Ban reduced[]

Hi Dat1899. Per admin discussion, your block length has been adjusted from permanant to 3 months. If you have issues in the future, please feel free to approach us for help, instead of blanking pages. Cheers, Supreme Emperor Holocomm 18:01, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Yong & Chimaera[]

  • Hey, the source for Yong crashing into the Chimaera comes from a Star Wars Insider magazine, which I own. I'll add the source when I pull it out of storage in the morning (it's past midnight here right now). - Noash Retrac (talk) 14:28, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
    • Ok, thank you, I'm glad to know that's not fanon.----Dat1899 (talk) 14:29, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
      • It wasn't, considering I put it there myself years back, though I never got the hang of sourcing. - Noash Retrac (talk) 15:53, 31 August 2021 (UTC)

Uploading images[]

When uploading files, please make sure to

  • Properly categorize your uploads. Right now all your uploads end up in various maintenance categories.
  • Use lowercase file extensions, i.e. .png instead of .PNG, as per Wookieepedia:Images#Filenames.

Thanks! 1358 (Talk) 20:22, 9 September 2021 (UTC)


Hey, would you mind uploading this image to the Wook as well? It will be useful to have as e-mail evidence. Stake black msg 23:40, 9 September 2021 (UTC)

  • In good time--Dat1899 (talk) 19:36, 10 September 2021 (UTC)

Wookiee cookie[]

Stake black msg has awarded you a Wookiee Cookie!
For your great detective work in figuring out who the film extras were.


Please provide the actual link to the Facebook post rather than "Dat1899's facebook" here. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 14:10, 16 September 2021 (UTC)

  • I'm afraid I can't do that, since the image is from a Facebook group. And the owner strictly told me not to share links.--Dat1899 (talk) 14:11, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
    • Can you at least provide a link to the group? Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 14:16, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
      • I'll see what I can do.--Dat1899 (talk) 14:20, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
  • Just to reiterate Shay's message here, the uploaded image is currently in violation of our Image policy, and will be deleted unless an adequate source can be provided. This means either a live link or a backup link to the group, or of the individual who posted the image. I recommend looking at {{FacebookCite}} to help with this. If the owner doesn't want this link shared, then you'll need to ask the original poster where they got the image from, or try a google image search to find an alternative source. Thanks. Tommy-Macaroni 07:24, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
    • I will need a bit of time.--Dat1899 (talk) 15:38, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
      • Does this work? File:HavordInANH.png.--Dat1899 (talk) 16:34, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
        • If the source is just "some guy on Facebook," then I'm afraid it's not a reliable source. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 07:44, 29 September 2021 (UTC)
          • Shay is correct, the current source really isn't suitable since there isn't a link to a page where the image was originally posted (Wookieepedia doesn't not count). As I said earlier, you'll probably need to ask this guy where he got the image from in the first place or run a google image search to find an alternative source. Tommy-Macaroni 08:22, 29 September 2021 (UTC)
            • All he told me was that the image was from a Japanese Press Still. I cannot find any copies on Google.--Dat1899 (talk) 14:02, 29 September 2021 (UTC)

Rebel Combat Speeder[]

Hi, your assumption is correct in the context of Battlefront. However, the vehicle also appears in Galactic Battlegrounds. That speeder can be built during the Battle in the Silken Asteroids mission that takes place during the early days of the Galactic Civil War. Best, Hk 47 (talk) 09:32, 3 November 2021 (UTC)

    • Ok, thank you. I'll take note of this.--Dat1899 (talk) 09:43, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
