Great Job![]

Holy crap I just noticed you had about 41,000 edits! Thats about the amount of articles on Wookieepedia itself. Keep up the good work! BTW: You might want to get a new userbox saying you have over 40,000 edits. I'll put up a proposal. :) Roron Corobb Talk 20px 00:29, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Celebration IV[]

I know that you believe that people here at Wookiee dislike you so much that it would warrant you to not attend C4 in May. However as our largest contributor to our site and an admin nonetheless, you are still welcome to help us in our venture at C4. I don't have anything personal with you and that whole subpage matter is now in the past. I would much appreciate it if you can make the trip out there and have fun with us and/or represent us at our table. :) -- Riffsyphon1024 07:34, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

  • I'm glad you think the issue is in the past because last time I checked the page was still there. I also am glad that you don't bear anything personal against me, because I do seem to recall that you voted both for keeping the aforementioned page and for removing me as an admin. Given the huge amount of time, effort, and money I have poured into this site only to constantly be considered somewhere between a fifth column and a petty vandal, I'm very hard-pressed to consider spending an even larger amount of money and time in going to represent us at C4, especially since it seems to me the only reason I'm wanted to badly is because so few other admins/major users have decided to go. Kuralyov 03:23, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
    • Well I will be going now as well as jSarek, and a few other users however those other users may not help us two out. Regardless, you are the epitome of the hard-working user. Though we've had our days and things went bump in the night, I feel that connecting at C4 will bring our community together more than ever. I would be delighted in meeting my fellow Wookieepedians at the greatest event this side of the galaxy. -- Riffsyphon1024 04:13, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Hyperdrive generator problem[]

McEwok saw fit to twice change information on the I-a2b solar ionization reactor page. The Star Wars Technical Journal has a reference to the ISD having the largest single hyperdrive generator, but the Death Star I schematic from SW:ICS shows individual hyperdrive generators similar to the ones seen elsewhere in the ICS line of books, lining the DS interior (I added their cross-section pictures to the DS I article, and they show that each one is much longer than one whole ISD). In size they are consistent with the rest of the generators and reactors inside the Death Star, i.e. much larger than on a small ship like a Star Destroyer. Unfortunately, some people have problems with ships sporting more impressive equipment in canon.

The first time, I asked him not to revert the passage I rewrote, that said the ISD's hyperdrive is one of the single largest, not actually the largest (which is from older sources), and warned that I'd tell an admin if it happened again. Now he's done it twice in a row and this is the second time he's actively changed or removed canon information (first time was on Utapau military some weeks back), and I want someone with authority to tell him to stop. Incidentally, I think his insistence on making ship equipment not bigger than on an ISD stems from the Trekkie-like belief that any advanced and small piece of equipment can be "modified" or "fine-tuned" to be 1000% more effective, which is not true. It's like suggesting one private motorboat's engine can be reworked to power a cruise ship. VT-16 18:58, 1 February 2007 (UTC) EDIT: He removed the context of this explicit line on the Utapau page and caused it to be locked.

"The Trade Federation protects its position in remote galactic regions by placing embargoes on arms sales to planetary governments. As a result, Utapauns rely upon self-made, downscaled ships - their biggest anti-pirate Rendili Dreadnaught is one-fifth the size of a Trade Federation Battleship."
―Revenge of the Sith: Incredible Cross-Sections, page 22

I would like it opened again and revert it to the way it was. VT-16 23:06, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Source request[]

I've been sourcing Pre-Republic era and came across two bits that I didn't know the source for that you added; I was wondering if you could tell me or just add them to the article.

Imperial Palace[]

Hi there. Was curious as to your edit back in September that went way out of left field describing a 'slaughter' of Imperials from New Republic forces. Specifically those that state they killed every person in there "regardless of innocence". I've looked over several sources, including Wedge's Gamble, and there's NO evidence to support these claims. Would you care to elaborate and, more importantly, show any evidence you may have beyond anti NR bias? mikal768

Specifically, here http://starwars.wikia.com/index.php?title=Imperial_Palace&diff=715053&oldid=700887 Note there are no new sources backing the claim up in this edit.

Help please![]

Hi, this is PacifistPrime. I haven't been using Wookieepedia for a while, and when I tried to log in again I couldn't re-access my account, because I couldn't remember my password (at first) and when I requested that it be sent to the email address attached to that account, I realised that that email account was now defunct (although I have since re-instated it). Anyway, my point is that in the interim I created a new Wookieepedia account under the username "mace'sbigblackcock" and was promptly blocked by you, it seems. Apparently that name violates some (rather puritanical) decency clause in your rules, but that's okay, I don't want to argue the toss. However, due to the block I could neither ask for help to be unblocked, nor could I create a new, less offensive username for some reason. When I finally got my old PacifistPrime account working again, I STILL couldn't edit because now my whole I.P. Address ( is blocked. So, I have no problem abandoning the "mace'sbigblackcock" username, but can you please unblock my IP address so I can get back to using my old address. Needless to say, I'm currently writing this from another computer, as it's the only way I could get the ability to edit again. Please let me know what you can do. Thanks, PacifistPrime

Another sourcing question[]

I'm sourcing Ulic Qel-Droma, and there's a few items in the BtS whose source I don't know. I saw you added this part, so I thought you might be able to help:

However, starting with Dark Lords of the Sith, Veitch began changing his plans, first by including Exar Kun after hearing of Kevin J. Anderson's plans to use an ancient Sith Lord for his Jedi Academy Trilogy, and then by co-authoring Dark Lords of the Sith with him. Anderson would go on to write The Sith War and Redemption on his own, thus further changing Veitch's original plans. Veitch came to resent the intrusion, and claimed "Ulic Qel-Droma was taken [from me] and butchered."

Great Droid Revolution[]

Hi. Upon examining the editting history of the Great Droid Revolution, I noticed that you added an infobox that said that it was part of the Old Sith Wars.

Re: Formatting[]

You wrote: "Please use proper formatting when making articles. You've been here long enough to know what that should be." Not necessarily. I rarely - if ever - start new articles from scratch; I add to existing articles. This is probably my second ground-up article, maybe my third. In two years. The rest of that time was for existing articles, hardly a lot of time to get acquainted with issues I don't deal with in a day-to-day basis. You don't like what I did, fine: by all means, reformat it to your liking. But please don't make assumptions about me and then rub my nose in it when they don't come to pass as you expect them to.

Now, this wiki is specifically not for those out there wishing to wield light sabers or have force powers. This wiki is for people who are serious about the spiritual ideologies represented in the Star Wars movies and books. My point in saying all of this is....our wiki really needs help. There are only two or three people who contribute regularly. If you would not mind, I would really appreciate you looking at the wiki and, if nothing else, giving me your advice. Thank you very much.

A heads up on Illustrated SW Universe vandalism[]

I've been forced to revert vandalism committed by McEwok on four seperate articles, related to the Illustrated SW Universe book. Apparently, his personal opinion decides what canon says. He did something similar on the Utapau page several months ago, and if that wasn't enough I hope his latest infractions (they appear to go in cycles with him, some months off and then it's back on again), will have him punished in some manner. My patience with this user disappeared long ago. VT-16 16:27, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

A question[]

Hi. I just wanted to ask you a question... Well, a little bit of backstory. I was reading the article on Magister Hal, and as he seemed to have potential for inclusion in a fanfic (yes, I'm utterly insane), I did a bit of research on him. I got Rogue Planet, Destiny's Way, and The Unifying Force, and used the computer to search for keywords such as the surname Hal, the word Magister, and stuff like that. As I haven't read any of those books all the way through, I might have missed it, but nowhere did I read that he had been a Jedi student. So I checked his article's edit history and found out that you had written that (in August 2006, so it was quite a while ago). I decided to come and ask you what your source for that was, because it seems like that would be quicker than reading three books. So here I am! :-)

Yes, he was wearing the signet ring of a Padawan, but his father had been a Padawan before leaving the Order. Someone, I think his daughter, said that only a Magister could wear that ring, which could be taken to imply that it was passed down. So he could very well have gotten it from his father; he didn't necessarily have to be a Jedi himself. If you know of anywhere else that said he had been trained as a Jedi, please tell me and I'll go pester someone else instead. :-) Thank you! -- 04:39, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

  • I believe it was something Obi-Wan said in Rogue Planet. I remember thinking at the time that it didn't make much sense. Kuralyov 15:20, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Like I said up there, I haven't read Rogue Planet all the way through - just searched for stuff pertaining to the first two Magisters - but was it this that you found?
Source:  Rogue PlanetAttribution:  Del Rey

For days now, a name had remained on the tip of his tongue-a particularly prominent young Jedi apprentice who had left the Temple voluntarily and renounced his training.

"Was your original Magister named Leor Hal?" he asked Shappa.

This work is copyrighted. The individual who uploaded this work asserts that this qualifies as fair use of the material under United States copyright law.

Because if this was it, then it was talking about the first Magister, not the unnamed second one. Or maybe it was this one: Sticking out between two large carved stones was an arm, most of the flesh gone now. On one finger gleamed a thick steel ring set with a pentangle of small red stones. Anakin recognized one of the old signet rings once handed out to Jedi apprentices. If that was the one, then like I said above, his father had been an apprentice, so he could easily have gotten it from him. --Crazy Jedi Girl 15:35, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Is there a problem?[]

  • In a few recent talk-pages here, you've been pretty hostile to me—and I'm not sure if I understand why. You've mentioned TF.N sarcastically in a couple of these comments, which makes me wonder if it's to do with your banning from there. Just in case you didn't know, I have no input in that sort of decision at TF.N, and I'd have opposed it in your case if I did have any say in it. --McEwok 13:38, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Lobot edits[]

Just wanted to know why you removed my edits to Lobot. it is the improvement drive page, and all I did was change a spelling mistake ("fpr" to what i assume it was meant to be, "for") and removed brackets from a redlink. Please tell me what about that deserved reversion. Admiral Carth Onasi 19:25, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

  • I re-corrected the "fpr" to "for", but you do not remove red links from pages, because those being there show that an article is needed for that topic. - JMAS 19:29, 20 August 2007 (UTC)


  • I saw that you edited the Caprioril page, naming that planet as the capital world of the Dolomar Sector. It would seem more fitting that Dolomar itself would be the capital planet. I'm curious as to where you found this information. Thanks. Toprawa and Ralltiir 03:40, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

In lieu of edit war :)[]

The Vos rumor about the Star Wars live-action TV series strikes me as very slightly more worthy of inclusion because of the one bit of corroborating evidence—Lucas' order that he not be killed off. The logical extrapolation is that he had some reason for giving that order. (Order 67?) Anyway, AICN may be notable, but they've been known to post erroneous rumors; if we had some external bit of evidence from some more reliable source that seemed to support the AICN rumors, I'd probably support their inclusion on the page. Gonk (Gonk!) 14:37, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Difference of opinion, then. It's very easy to make up stuff and get it posted to AICN, and I would prefer our "encyclopedia" to adhere to very high standards of factual accuracy so we don't have to delete stuff from that page (or every other page connected to the show). But I suspect I'm in the minority there. Gonk (Gonk!) 10:56, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Hey Kura. I was curious if you had a hard copy of Star Wars Legacy 4: Noob? I noticed it on your collection subpage, so I thought I would ask for your help. If you have a scanner and Noob, I'm looking for some cleaner/better quality scans of the following:

  • File:Harkas.JPG
  • File:Harkas3.jpg
  • File:Harkas2.jpg
  • File:Harkas and Trask on Ossus.JPG

According to Imp's objection to Harkas on the FAN page, the first two images are distorted. The second two he said he could let slip by, but would ideally like to see better scans.

Hey Kuralyov! I noticed that you recently changed the New_Jedi_Order_era page to place The Unifying Force at 29 ABY rather than 30, and I want to say, thank you!!! As you're an admin, I was wondering if this is a decision on the part of the Wookieepedia community --- that is, to change every reference to TUF being in 30 ABY to 29 ABY. If so: Hooray! For reference's sake, here's where Leland Chee confirms that each NJO hardcover takes place at the beginning of the calendar year: http://forums.starwars.com/thread.jspa?threadID=222689&start=3450 Menkooroo 22:45, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Ah, OK, thanks. I'd love to participate in any wide-scale attempt to change it, but I know that there are some people that maintain 30 ABY, despite official word, who might resist such an attempt. Menkooroo 21:05, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Hey, I was browsing a bookstore today, and I saw it confirmed in the New Essential Chronology --- 29 ABY! Yes! I would love to start a widescale change, but there's so many references to the end of the Vong war in soooo many articles that I doubt I'd be able to find them all. :^) I'll give it a shot, though.

I saw you reverted my changes to the categorizations of some of the Yuuzhan Vong articles I'd done. I got pretty confused over how to categorize and suddenly thought that it was all done wrong, but it's good that you stopped me before the damage was too extensive!

I thought it was like this:

i.e. Tsavong Lah Males|Yuuzhan Vong|Officers|Yuuzhan Vong officers|Yuuzhan Vong senior officers|Warmasters

So it's like a chain of all the categories which apply to him.

I'm guessing that isn't the case though—could you clarify how it works for me please? I wouldn't like to soil the Wook...Harrar 18:31, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Merry Christmas![]

Graestan would like to wish you a Merry Christmas!

I'd like to thank you all for the friendship, guidance, and support you've given me in the past year. Were it not for people like you, Wookieepedia would not be the success it has become. Keep up the good work! -- Graestan(Talk) 18:43, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Removing Information[]

How could the Republic Cruiser be in service for over a thousand years? I removed it because it's wrong, no need to be such a Darth Douche about it. --Pdixie 04:22, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm grateful of you[]

Thank you for forgiving me, I'm eternally grateful for you clearing my IP address. I promise that I will never do it again!

Oh, by the way, can I have a taste of that Wookiee Cookiee? It must taste good. Ahh.............................................................................................

WookieeProject Knights of the Old Republic[]

I have been given permission by the original founder to take over this WookieeProject. As a result, I would like to ask if you are still interested in working on it. Please contact me if you would like to continue or not, stating which role you wish to play if so.--Goodwood 20px (Alliance Intelligence) 18:40, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Taris in the Senate[]

I saw that you added the entry about Taris' seat in the Senate, in the 3966 BBY article. What is your source? Can you add it there, as well as in Taris? MoffRebus 19:03, 8 February 2008 (UTC)


Hey Kuralyov, I saw that you added Star Wars: X-Wing to the appearances list of the Executor page. I was hoping you might be able to elaborate for me on what role the ship plays in the game and, specifically, why it's non-canon. Thanks! Toprawa and Ralltiir 06:13, 21 February 2008 (UTC)


Do they appear in both Revelation and Invincible? Because the last paragraph in the "History" section refers to events you've sourced to Invincible, and I was just trying to keep the appearance list consistent. —Silly Dan (talk) 04:18, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

need help[]

Can U tell me how to quote someone? I can't figure out on my onw. Thanks 00:15, 14 March 2008 (UTC) Rastahigh

Path of Destruction[]

Hey, Kura. I was wondering if you knew where in Path of Destruction the Battle of Kemplex IX is mentioned? Currently, I'm expanding/rewriting the Battle of Kemplex IX for FA, and I noticed in the page history that you added PoD as an {{Mo}} appearance for the battle. I've done a text search through an e-copy of the book, but I can't find any mention, either directly or indirectly, of the battle. I was curious if you could help me out with this, since I want to see if I need to add anything from PoD before I nominate the article. Thanks, Greyman(Talk) 22:37, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Mailing list[]

Hey, Kura. I've set up a private administrator mailing list to help coordinate the current administrators of the site, and I am attempting to contact each administrator to get them to subscribe. You can subscribe here. My point with setting up this mailing list to get all of the administrators of Wookieepedia operating on the same page, and in a more unified fashion. Regardless of any personal differences that may exist between some members, I still feel that it is important that we are all operating on the same level, with regards to knowledge of the site, and new/upcoming stuff that is going to happen—so, basically, this is an attempt to coordinate us all in an effort to help keep us on the same page with regards to new policies, new ideas, announcements, discussions, etc. In my opinion, we're all on the same team and this will only help us to be a more organized and cohesive working unit—even more so than we currently are. I've already spoken with a few admins via IRC, and they have liked my point of this whole thing, and have thus signed up—I would really appreciate it you could do likewise :) Any questions about this, you know where you can reach me. Cheers, Greyman Jan.png (Talk) 16:07, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Not sure if you've had time to sign up, but most other admins have subscribed to the list. If you have subscribed, but haven't received a response from me, please email me with the address you want to use, and I will add it manually to the admin mailing list. There have been one or two instances with other admin's email addresses where I've had to do this. Cheers, Greyman Jan.png (Talk) 04:17, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Current WookieeProject Focus[]

The new WP:KOTOR Focus will be Taris, which is currently undergoing a somewhat excruciating FAN process. Let's pool our resources and talents together to get this essential planet article up to snuff.--Goodwood 20px (Alliance Intelligence) 23:05, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Question: Khil in Comics[]

Mr. Kuralyov,
On October 1st, 2006, at 23:08h, you added The Apprentice (from Star Wars Tales 17 to the appearance list of the Khil alien species. I revised the story and found it featuring Humans, one Chalactan and one Toydarian. Three more aliens appear as "extras" in page 1 panel 1, and page 2 panel 1, but none of them looked like a Khil to me.
On October 22nd, 2006, at 05:35h, you also added Mara Jade: By the Emperor's Hand, and I'm having the same problem, except because MJBTEH has lots of alien "extras". Perhaps I'm having trouble pinpointing the Khil with Carlos Ezquerra's distinctive Strontium style, or perhaps I cannot recognise a Khil if he crepts his hullapi on my gills.
If you do remember the appearances I'm talking about, I would ask you please to tell me more details (such as page and panel). Of course, if you should be a problem for you to check those comic-books (maybe they are not exactly at hand 18 months later), please do not bother; simply tell me and I'll double-check my copies till I find it.
Thank you very much for your time,--Skippy Farlstendoiro 17:35, 5 April 2008 (UTC) right|thumb|I bet it's the winged guy :P

  • Thank you very much for your quick answer. If I might steal you just one more nanosecond, maybe you could have a look at these "identity parade" panels and say if there's someone you recognise, please ? --Skippy Farlstendoiro 09:45, 6 April 2008 (UTC)


When was that? What article? What edit? o.O Trak Nar 05:13, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Oh wait, I found it. Nevermind. My bad. Sorry 'bout that. I guess I was getting a bit over-zealous that night. It won't happen again. I'll stick to the lil n00b corner of Wookieepedia where I belong. Trak Nar 05:17, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Could we talk?[]

Now that I was able to get a good night's sleep and clear my head, I readily admit (and in a much better mood now, too) that yes, I was in error about reverting that edit. I was just kinda following along with what other established users did and thought that I could do the same (in a feeble attempt to fit in). I may have gotten a tad over-zealous. I'm sorry about that.

However, the tone you used with me on that lil mistake was rather harsh. In fact, it stung. ALOT. I'm afraid to do any editing now.

You're an administrator, yes, I know. And I respect that and have learned to fear your wrath now. But, with great power comes great responsibility and oftentimes using power as a weapon will just drive everyone away, including other staff members. I was always under the impression that the staff is there to help the members, not just police them. At least, that's the type of mindset I used when I administrated forums. Admins were once new members, too, and all too often have I seen staff forget that. Absolute power corrupts absolutly.

I do not wish to offend. That is not the purpose of this message. That is not my intention. I only wish to discuss a small matter in a civil manner. Granted, I am only a mere user and weild no power or authority at all, but that shouldn't mean that a user cannot discuss a matter with an administrator.

Perhaps you happened to have had a bad day and inadvertantly taken it out on myself and Toprawa? Such things happen. That's understandable. Either way, the tone you used was threatening, hurtful and really got to me. The same effect would be achieved by physically hitting and screaming at me. I now fear you. Why did you feel the need to use such a tone?

Again, I'm sorry about that erronenous edit-revert. It won't happen again. Trak Nar 08:54, 15 April 2008 (UTC)


Sir, your combative, abusive tone is unacceptable. If you would like to discuss this, find me in IRC. Toprawa and Ralltiir 14:27, 14 April 2008 (UTC)


As a Wookieepedia user and admin, you are required to add a reference to pretty much everything you add, particularly things which aren't too straightforward. Thus, simply saying "The Executor is in the TFU comics" is nowhere near adequate enough; since the comic isn't out yet, you need to source that. The comic preview doesn't identify it as the Executor, either. Additionally, you're not allowed to threaten someone with a cooldown ban after one good faith edit. As an admin and as a user, you're supposed to assume good faith and approach things with civilty, which you did not do, as Toprawa indicated above; I strongly suggest you read this and this. Thanks, -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 20:00, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Let's talk[]

There are a number of edits you made recently that drew my attention, and, frankly, my concern:

Now, I do realize that I am not the longest-reigning administrator on the site, but this really does come across as clear and simple bullying to me, and so does your reversion of another good-faith edit by the user who called you out for your previous actions. If I do not completely agree with the spirit of AdmirableAckbar's above message, I certainly agree with the contents of the two links he provided you. I'd really like to discuss this in some detail, so I welcome you to e-mail me or track me down in #wookieepedia sometime soon. Graestan(Talk) 14:38, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Let me add my voice to those concerned by this spate of attacks on users making good-faith edits, erroneous or otherwise. A simple reversion, or reversion with a message on their talk page, would have been sufficient; threatening bans was way over the line. jSarek 20:03, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Sources in Gar Stazi article[]

Hey Kuralyov. I noticed you added some bits to the Gar Stazi article about when he became SC of the GADF. Can you please source this addition? I have nominated it for FA status, so I need to make sure everything is sourced. If it doesn't have a source, please let me know and we can remove it. AdmiralNick22 17:30, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

  • If he's never addressed as such, it's OR to say so. I've reverted the edit after admin approval in IRC. Please avoid adding things like that, particularly without adding any ref notes. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 17:52, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
    • Gents, can we come to some compromise? I see that both you and Ackbar are reverting back an forth. Let's all discuss this and figure out the best way forward. :-) AdmiralNick22 21:03, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
      • Kura, you're really acting un-administratively. As an "administrator," you should know that all new information added to an article must be sourced. This isn't the first time you've been told about this. Please source any new info you add to any article in the future. Toprawa and Ralltiir 21:13, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Gar Stazi is never said to be the Chief of State, and saying as much in his article is Original research. The examples that you used of Daala and Pellaeon are not relevant, in which you said "This is the same criteria used here to depict Pellaeon, Daala, et al as both supreme commanders and political heads." -- To correct you, Pellaeon is stated to be the head of the Empire in Revelation, and according to StarNeptune (who has an early release of the novel) Daala is noted as the Chief of State in Invincible in which she even gives a speech at the end of the book. Stazi, however, is never stated to be the Chief of State of anything -- if he was, it would be included in his FAN nomination. Also, AdmirableAckbar has not violated the 3RR rule, since he only reverted three times. Per the policy page 3RR, "If you violate the three-revert rule, after your fourth revert in 24 hours, sysops may block you for up to 24 hours." So, not only did he not break policy, but you as an admin, were engaged in an edit war and used your sysop tools to gain the advantage. I've never had a problem with you at all as an administrator, but your actions over the last month or so with regards to non-admin users has been causing a lot of concern among your fellow administrators. Among them is the intimidating behavior, threats, and edit warring. I'm simply writing you this, since I want this to stop and you to start acting like a responsible administrator again. Communication is the key, and your attempts at communication have always ended with "That's cool, but I'm an admin, and I'll block you if you don't see it my way." This needs to stop, or the community may take action. No response to me is necessary, as I simply want/expect your attitude to change for the positive with how you go about your administrative duties. Greyman Jan.png (Talk) 21:19, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
  • A word of warning here, Kura: Do your own research before coming onto my talk page and attempting to intimidate me. If you had checked Stazi's history, Ackbar did three reverts today (May 4) history as seen here. By your reasoning, you should be blocked as well since you've reverted just as much as he did. If you'll notice, even though I think you're completely wrong, I haven't unblocked AdmirableAckbar, even though I really want to -- why? Because I chose to follow policy, instead of interpreting it to suit my needs. Take that as what you want, Greyman Jan.png (Talk) 21:32, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
  • I'm not going to get into this, Kura, because I'll leave it up to your fellow admins to sort out, but I'd like to say three things. Firstly, even if the information was correct (and I'm not saying it is), it was unsourced, and you'd been asked to add a ref note if you readded it; it's an FAN, and all info should be sourced. Secondly, just because the info is found elsewhere in the article is no reason to include it if it is false. Lastly, whether we work by 24 hour time period or calendar day (wiki time), I only reverted three times on the 4th of May, the same amount as you. Anyway, that's all I plan to say. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 21:45, 4 May 2008 (UTC)


  • I imagine you're aware of this, but in case you're not, you should know that you are currently up on Wookieepedia:Requests for removal of user rights. jSarek 09:15, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
  • The RFRA was successful and Staff have removed the sysop user rights from your "Kuralyov" account. Greyman@wikiajanitor(Talk) 03:35, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Source for "earliest Jedi philosophers" sentence in "Chosen One" article?[]

I see that in this edit you added the following to the Chosen One/Legends article: "It was thought to have been created by the earliest Jedi philosophers, after the creation of the Galactic Republic but before the Jedi assumed an active role in it." Was there a specific source for this, and if so could you let me know what it was or add a reference to the article? Thanks. Hypnosifl (talk) 21:34, February 22, 2016 (UTC)
