Spoiler policy[]

Hi this is a reminder that the spoiler policy mentions that information from TV episodes may only be posted upon the episode's initial Eastern Time Zone airtime. Even though the episodes are in the app they still need to air on the east coast. Thanks--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 17:45, October 7, 2018 (UTC)

Re:Bryce Dallas Howard picture[]

It's done. Note that you can tag images with {{Delete}} just as you would regular pages, just make sure to include a link to the superior image, like so: {{Delete|Obsoleted by [[File:Filename.jpg]]}} Imperators II(Talk) 05:43, October 9, 2018 (UTC)

Re:Mantellian Army[]

I don't have the TOR encyclopedia, but I'm aware of NPCs wearing Mantellian uniforms who are in some way identified as Republic personnel. I will remove Fort Garnik as the headquarters in the infobox, as I don't actually think there's anything that says that. However, that codex entry does make a distinction between the "government-backed military" and the mainstream Republic Army. I'm open to discussing this further though. Fan26 (Talk) 15:06, October 13, 2019 (UTC)

  • I understand it as the blue uniform largely belongs to the local soldiers (though some Republic personnel seem to use it). If you look at the NPCs that spawn around the world, all of the ones identified as "Mantellian" something-or-other wear the blue uniform, while there are NPCs in regular Republic uniforms identified as "Republic soldiers". I'd say those NPC nameplates are enough to identify a clear difference. I think the discrepancies you've pointed out belong in the BtS of some articles, and where necessary, a sentence in the body of certain articles (e.g. that Republic private and his corrupt CO from the Trooper storyline who both wear the blue uniform) saying something like "While a member of the Republic military, they wore the blue uniform common to Mantellian personnel". Fan26 (Talk) 15:37, October 13, 2019 (UTC)
    • There's plenty of stuff that seems to imply, IMO, that the Mantellian Army is separate from the main republic army present on Ord Mantell. I don't think Mantellian Trooper/Soldier specifically refers to specialized Republic soldiers, given that there are plenty of Republic soldiers in regular uniform on the planet. Based on what you've told me, I now think it might be fair to say that the Mantellian Army was composed of both Mantellians and Republic personnel (Farn or maybe Wesner too) such as embedded within it, in addition to the other Republic personnel on-planet.

Comments on IRC[]

Hello, NanoLuuke. I just read your comment on IRC addressed at spookywilloww, and I wanted to tell you that, no matter your personal likes or dislikes regarding Wookieepedia policies, you trying to make other editors feel bad about following the site's policies will absolutely not be tolerated, and, if repeated, may result in administrative action against you. Consider this an official warning. Thank you. Imperators II(Talk) 23:00, February 3, 2020 (UTC)

Rosario Dawson[]

Hi NanoLuuke,

Sorry for not sourcing Elizabeth Rodriguez's birthdate in her article. I learned to not cite Wikipedia and IMDb as sources, and for that reason and put the "Gone with a Trace" credits as a source to her involvement in the franchise, but I believed that it was fine leaving her birthdate listed like it's mentioned in Wikipedia, IMDB among other sites because if all websites list the same birthdate, then it must be her real birthdate. With all the messages she receives on Twitter, t's impossible to ask her when she was born.

That said, by making an article for Rosario Dawson, then which website you could recommend me to list as a source? Because we have articles for days, months and years to list birthdates, events and releases.

SWKidsYoutube template[]

Hi NanoLuuke, I'm not sure how to generate a stable url for SWKids YouTube videos. Had a read of Forum:SH:Pages with missing archive links but it doesn't say how to do it.

Want to talk about Oola[]

I am trying my best to add information on the character that can be found in fact files and books. I mean sure it needs work and improvement but I am trying to work with the best that I am finding. I sure it goes against rules if I copy it all word from word from the fact files and from the books. I am trying to find the links to the fact files I downloaded the pictures of the files to my phone. What is the best way to attach links and photos? It's hard and a lot of work finding these fact files and picking out moments found in these books I am reading. Craziness Grows (talk) March 27 8:29 (UTC)

  • There is a problem the screen shots that I took of the book pages and the fact files that I found. It won't let me add the screen photos the word Flase popped up here Wookieepedia when I tried adding a gallery of the screen shots. I would send a screen shot of the word Flase poping up on here as I use the gallery but it won't let me send the photo. So I think there is a glitch problem preventing me from adding any of the photos I have as proof. Oh so I need to make 50 edits before I can add photos on here I thought is was some kind of glitch. Craziness Grows (talk) March 27 9:00 (UTC)
    • I am quitting I am not going to do the 50 edits. Something got removed so I am leaving I am going to delete my account if that is possible. Now that information that I found about Oola it will never make it on here. I am running and leaving from this site infact I should have never come here the first place. I am leaving because of someone named User:Zed42 because of an edit made to Harc Seff. Maybe someone else will add Oola's information from the fact files and books but mostly likely not. It's not going to be me because I am done. Craziness Grows (talk) March 28 7:56 (UTC)

RE: OOU Sourcing[]

I couldn't find any sources that confirmed the dates besides Wikipedia. I figured that that was okay, though, considering many real-world biographies (including those of John Williams and Michael Giacchino) that link to WP also don't have references. RattsT (talk) 15:26, April 16, 2020 (UTC)

  • So I've done some digging, and there aren't very many reliable sources. The best I could find were some tweets that the composers engaged with. Gordy replied to this tweet about his 43rd birthday, which seems confirmation enough to me for the date and year. Barton was less easy to find. There's this fan tweet with just the date that Barton simply liked. If we can use these as references, I'll add them. Otherwise, I'll delete the info. RattsT (talk) 20:10, April 16, 2020 (UTC)
    • Added the ref to Gordy's page and deleted the info from Barton's. Thanks for the letting me know about the error! RattsT (talk) 14:00, April 17, 2020 (UTC)

Re: WP:TOR[]

Good work! I haven't given much thought to updating the project page for a while, but I'm glad you did all that, seeing as interest in TOR work is increasing these days. Thanks a ton! Fan26 (Talk) 14:53, April 23, 2020 (UTC)

  • Yeah, the website sub-project looks good! I've made some grammatical cleanup, but the overall structure of and plan for the initiative looks good! As for my subpages, I'd thought of doing that a while back, to organize who was working on what and all that, but dismisssed the idea due to a contemporary lack of interest in TOR. Now that there's more interest I'd be happy to integrate them into the main project page. How do you want to go about that? Fan26 (Talk) 14:22, April 25, 2020 (UTC)

KOTOR II quote[]

Merging[]

I got your message, and I hope I'm responding to you correctly.

The thing about merging those articles is twofold. First, some of them have already been merged in cases where differentiating them wouldn't really matter, like the Missile Trooper (Rebel), Mobile Missile Launcher, and several Pummel articles. Second, they've also been merged in articles where they probably shouldn't have been, like the Rebel combat speeder and Heavy Artillery Gun.

I believe the nature of how Galactic Battlegrounds' gameplay works means we really need to consider how the articles regarding the in-game units are handled. On the one hand, some of the units are quite clearly different from one another even if they may be related, like the S-AAD and S-HAAD; on the other hand, dividing them is likely to end up with the wiki having two or three articles that are effectively identical in content, with only the image and a line of text - if that! - to differentiate them.

Ultimately, this seems like it boils down to a difference of opinion on how the articles in question ought to be, and as an admin, your opinion carries far more weight than mine. Agree or not, I'll go with whatever you decide.--Valiran (talk) 04:58, April 30, 2020 (UTC)

    • Well, it seems like I confused you with someone else. *facepalm* Thank you for telling me to bring the matter to the Senate Hall, I've made a thread there to discuss the topic as well as other page mergers that I think may or may not be warranted, and would appreciate your input on the matter.--Valiran (talk) 21:52, April 30, 2020 (UTC)

Archive link[]

By the time I had added external link, the article had not been archived in the Web Archive and therefore I couldn't add a backup link. --Mr Star Wars Amino Republic (talk) 17:18, May 5, 2020 (UTC)

My edits.[]

You're welcome. I forgot about that part. I'm still new to using archival information. I've only done it briefly before. Actually, I did correct an earlier error and add images not long afterwords, but I saw that the date was later added to them, so I didn't fully do it correctly. I'm still learning new things, I suppose and trying to do my best. So, thankfully, I did realize my earlier error, at least and attempted to rectify it. Thank you for letting me know and being polite about it. I never try to mess up, but when I do, it's good to have someone who is helpful about it instead of angry. Roger Murtaugh (talk) 19:33, May 5, 2020 (UTC)

Black Hole dark trooper[]

Hi! Thanks for your trust but unfortunately there is nothing I can really do. This unit, like all other SWG darktroopers, are just randomly spawned in the Galactic Civil War-contested areas. There is no specific story for them. Best, Hk 47 (talk) 21:21, May 5, 2020 (UTC)

Information on Peter Geddis[]

You supposedly removed information from the Peter Geddis and Memorial of deceased actors, artists, and authors page regarding the death date of the actor based on the fact that the information was unsourced; however, a glance at the actor's imdb page (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0311474/) confirms that he passed away; the date in the infobox was, in fact, there long before I updated the rest of the page with the relevant information. After combing the internet for quite a while, I cannot find any other source mentioning his fate; the only things I can find are tracts of forum pages regarding his presence on the autograph circuit-- though nothing particularly recent, probably owing to the man's age. Seeing as credentials are required in order to edit an actor's imdb page (which even lists a place of death) and that site is used as a source for other information here on Wookieepedia, I think that should be enough, pending the discovery of an obituary-- I'll dig through Warwickshire's newspapers for that year, see if I can find anything. Thought I should bring this to your attention regardless. Frustrated. StrangeStatue (talk) 03:37, May 13, 2020 (UTC)

RE: Trilla Suduri[]

Hello there. Sorry you interpreted it that way, as that was not my intention... You asked for the interview, so I provided. While we're on the subject - what is the source that she was redeemed? The scene is ambiguous (as we're seeing), and Grullon is better placed than us to shed light on the context. As she says her job is to "serve the writer". I'm familiar with Wookiepedia policy, however what exactly needs to be referenced? The change of infobox theme? Again, where is the reference that she was redeemed and rejoined the Jedi in the brief moment before her death?

Re: Wookieeproject SWTOR[]

You've written: Hello Dawidos, I noticed you're quite interested into adding quality artworks and illustrations to SWTOR articles.

Warning: Attribution[]

This message is a general warning to you regarding the proper sourcing of articles, in response to your recent edit here. You changed that reference apparently without realizing that that same reference note is used again later in the body of the article. By changing that reference's contents, the article-body instance of that reference note now no longer correctly sources its information, so you basically broke the reference, which is particularly problematic given this is a Featured article.

Canonicity of the Novelizations - per Pablo Hidalgo at Lucasfilm Story Group[]

I appreciate your wanting to keep the Wookieepedia citing correct sources, but you are mistaken that the novelizations are not part of the new canon. Per a member of the Lucasfilm Ltd. Story Group, Pablo Hidalgo, they are still in the new canon up until something in a subsequent film retcons a particular fact, but the rest of the novelization is still canon even when a particular fact is retconned.

Please refer to the screenshots in this image link and read through all of the tweets. Pablo has since deactivated his account, deleted all of his tweets from that era, reactivated his account, and then locked his account, so following the links to the actual tweets is now impossible.

The imgur link on this page of the Wookiee leads to the tweets, since the filter would not allow me to post the imgur link directly: https://starwars.fandom.com/f/p/3100000000000115910

But I also want to know what was your official source for one year between the two films? I did not see your citation.

Force Wars[]

  • Hi, I can have a look... Best, Hk 47 (talk) 22:23, 17 April 2021 (UTC)
    • Dear NanoLuuke, I had a look about what you requested to me. It was in fact an interesting search! I think the Force Wars were not intended to be mentioned in KotOR II since they were apparently created in The New Essential Chronology, released after the game. For information, the mention to KotOR II in the Force Wars' page was added by an unregistered user... I think we can remove the game from the Force Wars' appearance list. Finally, I found an interesting quote in the game from Master Kavar: "The Jedi Order has been fighting the dark side since the beginning." It's not enough to link to the Force Wars but it can be used as a quote. I updated the Force Wars' page. Best, Hk 47 (talk) 18:38, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

I wanted to ask you two things. I have seen that Stephen Daldry's article is gonna be deleted for being unverified over seven days. Can you explain me what this exactly means? What can I make to avoid the article from being deleted? The other thing, is that I have seen that Brian De Palma's article notes the rumors of Carrie Fisher having auditioned for Carrie which Fisher debunked, but they have no citation. I have found the magazine, the article's name and the author of that source, but I can't find a publishing date. Should I post the reference like that of the Wedding of Han Solo and Leia Organa?

Peter Diamond Lightbulb Man[]

Hello, I am inquiring about an edit of mine you removed on the “Scenes Cut From Star Wars” page back on April 21 about Peter Diamond wearing a light bulb costume. I do realize I did not add a source however that was due to the complex way of adding one here.

The info itself comes from Anthony Daniels’ autobiography “I Am C-3PO” on page 131 which goes as follows: “It was long before the abundance of blue and green screen scenes but Peter Diamond was still very much a popular member of the cast and crew. As a stuntman he was no stranger to peril. But this seemed to be going too far. First having appeared as the murderous Tusken Raider, here he was in another bizarre outfit. Trailing electric cables behind him, he walked slowly - and very carefully - across Jabba’s throne room. He was garbed in some kind of insulating suit. His out-stretched and elongated arms were dressed with rows of fragile light bulbs like some ghastly parade float. His outer glow was mesmerizing. So was the thought that he might get electrocuted any moment. The idea was that he would provide a travelling source of light for some creature character that would be drawn in and added later. It was one of the moments of real suspense on the set. Peter survived but the idea didn’t.”

There are several photos of the character floating around online if you search up things like “Star Wars lightbulb man” as well as a OriginalTrilogy.com thread about the subject. I believe it appears in one of the behind the scenes documentaries as well.

I was wondering if you could please add this info and source to article as I am not sure how to do it properly? I hope this clears things up. Thanks. -User:Gemmyman

Harb Binli[]

Bonjour NanoLuke, I don't often use Wookieepedia a huge amount, but do get notified when some pages get added to/changed. This is because I was lucky to play the character of Harb Binli in Rogue One, and am interested in his backstory etc!! I was sent an email about an edit you made regarding a Notes and References for Harb: Build your own X-Wing, edition 24 of a magazine. Can I just ask what that magazine is? Does Harb Binli get referenced in that magazine?

Also, I noticed you removed the text "The character appears next to Jyn Erso during heated discussions in the Yavin Base briefing room scene". I was wondering if that text should stay, as did I indeed play the character in that scene! Anyway, Merci et bonne continuation!!Unsigned comment by Rebellionpilot (talk • contribs).

  • Yes - I like the new expanded text! It's amazing how much extra information there is about all these other characters - they add so much to the whole tapestry of the Star Wars universe don't they! I certainly appreciate the work you all do in maintaining these pages. I had such an amazing time working on the Star Wars films, both as Harb Binli and as an advisor, and love to follow the additions to the story and characters. Cheers.Unsigned comment by Rebellionpilot (talk • contribs).

Question about deletion[]

Hi, NanoLuke -- I see that you deleted my section on the Give-a-Show Projector from the Kenner page, saying that it doesn't meet the notability standards. But the reason that I added the section to the Kenner page was because my original standalone page for the Give-a-Show Projector got marked for deletion for not meeting the notability standards. I hadn't been aware of those particular rules before I started working, but once I read the standards, they specifically say that toys should go under the manufacturer page, so that's where I put the information. Why then did this also get deleted?

I can see why, for instance, one doesn't want a unique page for every single Darth Vader action figure that Kenner/Hasbro released. But this isn't just another figure or an accessory to a figure; the Projector a wholly unique toy with its own distinct entries in its line. (The guidelines specifically state there should be individual pages for toy lines, which sounds like what I originally created.)

Re-reading the standards to see what I may have missed, I do see an instruction to put this under Sources on the manufacturer page, but that seems to be a section entirely for references to earlier parts of the article. Since no earlier part of the article talks about the Projector, that didn't seem to be the intended meaning. So I made a very abbreviated version of my original article to the Kenner page. Could you please better explain about how the information should be listed under Sources?

If neither its own page nor the Kenner page is the proper place to put the information about the Projector, please provide some additional guidance as to where I can properly put this piece of Star Wars history. Thank you in advance. -- TomH (talk) 19:10, 25 November 2021 (UTC)

Hi again, NanoLuke - Thanks for your calm and diplomatic response. While I haven't moderated large wikis before, I have moderated forums and (way back in the day) Yahoo! Groups, so I know how hard it can be to make everyone happy. I appreciate your keeping your head.

I've been editing wikis, and creating pages for them, since 2005, with little to no negative feedback, so I was surprised this time around. I acknowledge, though, that I missed a lot of specifics in your Layout Guide, which I somehow hadn't seen before.

At any rate, a user named OOM had an excellent piece of advice for me on the talk page for the Projector. He pointed out that there's a Star Wars Merchandise Wiki, and at first glance, there seems to be a ton of items similar to what I've described on this page. That might be a much better fit for the type of page I'd like to do. I won't pursue any further action on the Projector page on this wiki, and I'll see if someone can review my work on that wiki before I save it. Thank you for your time, and sorry for causing a kerfuffle! -- TomH (talk) 16:05, 27 November 2021 (UTC)
