I’ve seen one of the edits you’ve made about the Matukai four years back, and I have a question. What did you source the Matukai “whirlwind blur” feat from? I’ve read all of the sources this subject was listed under and couldn’t find anything mentioning it. --Skittlemiser (talk) 05:56, December 24, 2016 (UTC)
Oh, lord, that was from forever ago. If I remember right, I entered a lot of content from RPG source material - the whirlwind blur, if I remember right, was a direct quote from that material. I want to say it was the Training Manual, but I may be mistaken. I can verify once the holidays are over. Dorian G (talk) 07:13, December 24, 2016 (UTC)
Or I can do it now. It was bothering me when I couldn't find it right away. “…a skilled Matukai can whip his wan-when around his body with amazing speed and agility, creating a virtual whirlwind of metal and blades..." From page 144 of the Heroes Guide. Combined with their physical feats and bonuses, they pretty much move pretty friggin fast Wan-shen or not - hence the paraphrasing. More than likely I was bulk introducing material to the article, and forestalled any proper sourcing. I like to think I'm a little more careful to catalogue nowadays ;). If you have any more questions on the origination of material, I can lend a hand. Just give a shout. Dorian G (talk) 07:36, December 24, 2016 (UTC)
I was wondering where you got that from. I had read all the books listed under sources and appearances for the Matukai, and couldn’t find anything that cited “Matukai were capable of executing physical feats such as tumbling, running, leaping, and complex martial sequences at an astonishing speed described as a ‘whirlwind’ blur of limbs and movement.”
I thought that if it wasn’t in any of the sourcebooks linked below, it might be in The Lost Suns for The Old Republic. But all I found there was that Theron Shan was apprenticed under a Matukai adept as of 3,600 BBY. When it wasn’t there, I reread the Hero’s Guide twice and could not find that specific text. That’s when I thought the description you archived came from a source that wasn’t saved to the main page, so I had to ask.
Thank you for putting an end to that wild goose-chase. You were clearly editing with the detail in mind that they used themselves as the axis to increase and maintain the rotational patterns of the blade. Something I didn’t pay enough attention to. --Skittlemiser (talk) 06:22, December 27, 2016 (UTC)
Hi, just to let you know, I don't know if its just me or if the image is like that, but for me it looks abig black spot and some black and white dots on the background
Nah, the image is just like that. The image comes from Pirates & Privateers, which only offers low quality black and white profiles of a variety of ships. A similar example is the Stalwart-class light freighter, which I also added. Unfortunately both the Stalwart and Nella have only two sources, both of which I've scoured for images - the profiles are the only ones to exist. Dorian G (talk) 08:09, September 24, 2017 (UTC)
Lancer-class pursuit craft is a canon page therefore links shouldn't go to legends pages, if MandalMotors is left as that it goes to a legends page so that's why I'm adding MandalMotors/Canon so someone can make the canon version if that's the manufacturer of the ship. If the source isn't canon then it shouldn't be going on the page --Lewisr (talk) 22:26, December 2, 2017 (UTC)
- Fair enough thank you! Ah okay well I understand don't worry, those kind of books are hard to tell what goes on what continuity, but thanks for asking! --Lewisr (talk) 22:35, December 2, 2017 (UTC)
Hello, no I do remember! To me if you say that its meant to be depicting the YV-260 Vengeance when compared to the description then I would go with that. As for the placement of the image compared to the references to the ship, I guess you could put it down to just a simple mistake or something. Thanks for asking me, though I think you might want to get another opinion as I'm not certain --Lewisr (talk) 21:13, July 13, 2018 (UTC)
- Nah, your opinion is just fine. It's so obscure that no one besides our little enthusiast group is going to care, speaking honestly. We'll put it down as a mistake, and move forward. Thank you for your input! Dorian G (talk) 21:39, July 13, 2018 (UTC)
Hey Dorian, just to let you know I have disabled the categories on your workbench, so it doesn't appear when people are browsing the in universe categories. This is detailed in our user page policy: "User pages must not be put in categories which would cause them to be mistaken for "real" articles. Likewise,
- Oh, thank you! I've been looking for a way to turn that off - I would have been a little more proactive if I had known it was against policy; I'll be sure to read through the policy page more thoroughly! Dorian G (talk) 20:02, March 22, 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for contributing to Wookieepedia! Please note that at least one of your recent additions added information from the wrong continuity to an article. Subjects that exist in both continuities have separate articles for Canon and Legends material, denoted by a banner at the top of each page. In the future, please make sure that you're adding information from the correct continuity to an article. Thanks! RattsT (talk) 22:20, July 23, 2020 (UTC)
- Thanks for the correction: still getting used to the continuity changes! Dorian G (talk) 18:19, July 25, 2020 (UTC)

- Hi Lewisr, thanks for the catch! Still trying to get used to the canon/legends switch. Dorian G (talk) 18:45, 22 October 2020 (UTC)
Hey, Dorian. Just wanted to ask if you remember what source uses the name "E-5C heavy blaster rifle", since I see you added it to the E-5C page here? Thanks!

Hi Erebus, frankly that was so, *so* long ago. If I wrote it, I'm sure I read it somewhere. If I had a solid guess it would be from the Battlefront game, as that's really the only source on it. Perhaps in the weapon description in-game? Hope that helps! If you find any contrary sources on it, of course feel free to change its classification. Dorian G (talk) 23:15, 7 March 2021 (UTC)
