Removing content[edit source]

Please do not remove content from Wookieepedia. It is considered vandalism. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Trip391 (talk) 09:09, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Please do not continue to copy-paste Legends articles into canon articles. One must rewrite the article completely, with the correct links and removal of Legends info, in order to create canon articles. Thank you. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 12:45, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Canon articles[edit source]

Hello, please be aware that you cannot simply copy and paste Legends into a new canon page. You must clean up the article by removing Legends sources, references, and make sure that the Legends links are turned into canonical ones. To do this, here's an example: [[Luke Skywalker/Legends|Luke Skywalker]] → [[Luke Skywalker|Luke Skywalker]]. I hope this helps, JangFett (Talk) 13:04, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

  • Do not remove red links. JangFett (Talk) 13:06, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
  • Again, to edit a canon article we do not copy and paste from Legends. Many times the information can be different, or even outright wrong when copied from Legends. Trip391 (talk) 09:11, June 28, 2014 (UTC)

Do not remove talk page warnings[edit source]

Please do not remove messages from talk pages or other discussion pages. All messages are part of the public record and must remain visible. Thank you for your cooperation. Trip391 (talk) 11:28, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

Canon vs Legends[edit source]

Hey Nivlacanator. Please take note of the icons at the top of every in-universe page that say "Canon" or "Legends." If a page is marked "Legends," please don't add newly released canon sources, such as Star Wars: Commander, to the page. New canon sources like Commander are canon-only and do not apply to Legends. The only canon stories that can be used in Legends are Episodes I-VI and The Clone Wars.

I also noticed you were adding appearances for Episodes VIII and IX, as well as unconfirmed appearances for Episode VII. Please note that rumors or speculation shouldn't be added to those pages.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 05:59, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

Capitalization of "/Canon"[edit source]

Please take care when creating new articles with the suffix "/Canon", ensuring that the "C" is capitalized. Several of your recent article creations have had to be moved to the correct capitalization. Thank you for your cooperation. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar.svg(Squadron channel) 08:30, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

Canon articles[edit source]

While I appreciate your enthusiasm, please stop creating articles until you have read our Layout Guide and Manual of Style. Your articles are rife with a number of errors, the most prolific of which I'll point out here:

  1. You're not adding any categories
  2. Article names should only be bolded once, and two dashes makes an italic, not three.
  3. Please remember to put the second set of '' at the end of italicized words, such as Heir to the Jedi, so that you stop italicizing the rest of the line.
  4. Every article must have the {{Eras}} template, and canon articles that are not at /Canon names must have {{Eras|type=canon}}
  5. Articles should only be at "/Canon" if there is already an article at the proper title. There's no reason Desert Jewel should be at Desert Jewel/Canon.
  6. There should only be only blank line before the Appearances header, and it's spelled Appearances, not Appearences.
  7. Articles that are first mentioned in a source should use {{1stm}}, not {{Mo}}. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 12:23, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
  • Please head the above advice and warnings. If you don't, you may face administrative reprisal for failing to follow our policies. Thanks. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 12:38, July 18, 2014 (UTC)
I understand English is not your first language, but please try to follow the above advice. If you're cutting and pasting, then please add the canonical categories too. Also you keep writing '/canon', not '/Canon'. --Alientraveller (talk) 13:08, July 18, 2014 (UTC)
Basically, the best way to start is by reading and following the advice I just gave you. Specifically, in all of those additions you made a few hours ago to the Appearances sections of articles (adding the novels), you left off the end of the italics (the second '') after the end of the link. That italicizes the entire line instead of the link. If you have any other questions, let me know. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 13:19, July 18, 2014 (UTC)

Darth Maul/Canon[edit source]

Hey. I reverted your edit to Darth Maul again. When a subject appears in all issues of a comic series, like Son of Dathomir, we only list the series instead of all the issues. It should stay the way it is on the page now. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 14:06, July 23, 2014 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

Please read the image policy before uploading any more files to Wookiepedia. There are certain rules that must be followed in order for images to be legally hosted here. Thanks.--The-Boy.png 14:07, July 25, 2014 (UTC)

Unverified info[edit source]

Thank you for contributing to Wookieepedia! Please note that at least one of your recent additions added unverified information to a mainspace article. Additions to Wookieepedia's articles must be verifiable by a reliable source per our sourcing policy, and unverified information may be reverted or deleted. Continuing to add unverified information may lead to you being blocked from editing by an administrator. Thank you. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research.svg (Comlink) 14:27, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

  • Unless you have proof that the Imperial Navy, stormtroopers, etc. will be appearing in the new Marvel Star Wars comic, do not add the comic to those articles' lists of appearances. If you continue to do so without providing proof, you will be blocked from editing. Thank you for your cooperation. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research.svg (Comlink) 14:57, July 27, 2014 (UTC)
    • Very well. In that case, when adding the comic to an article's appearance list, you should clarify in the edit summary that you identified the article's subject in the comic's preview pages. Doing so will avoid future misunderstandings. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research.svg (Comlink) 15:31, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

Canon article creation/expansion[edit source]

Canon articles are not to be made by copy and pasting content from Legends articles, but simply removing Legends details, links, and sources (or in your case just changing the links). They must be written from scratch. While some information may be shared between Canon and Legends, copying from Legends is not always accurate, is poor editing practice (plagiarism is never allowed), and is not to be done. Trip391 (talk) 23:34, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

Star Wars Journeys[edit source]

I've noticed you've been adding Journeys appearances to some pages, which is great, sinc it seems you have the app. I've noticed that in the case Xexto, the species doesn't appear on the Journeys page. I think it'd be best to update that page with information like that when necessary, unless you or whoever was writing that didn't think that the Xexto name was canon anymore (Which is understandable). In that case, is the Xexto(s) in Journeys Gasgano? Or is it just some random background Xexto? Unfortunatly I don't have the App, or an iPhone 5 to buy it with (Unless it's compatible with Apple computers too? I don't know much about Apple products in general). Thanks in advance if you got any more info on that. :) --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 21:23, August 11, 2014 (UTC)

Holonet News[edit source]

Are you aware that each time you add a Holonet News appearance, the link goes to a dead page on the Holonet News tumblr page, rather than the Wookieepedia article for each video? Doctor Kermit(Complain.) 20:01, August 12, 2014 (UTC)

Art Attack[edit source]

Hey. Art Attack, as well as The Machine in the Ghost, is described as a "prequel short," so it takes place before Star Wars Rebels. It should therefore be placed before the show in Appearance sections. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 05:09, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks! There's a bit of uncertainty in that a few books have labeled them as being taken from episodes, but the videos are specifically labeled as prequel shorts. So, until such time as we learn that they're from an episode, it's best to treat them as such. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 05:50, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Hello, Nivla. Please also note that since, according to what we're being told, these shorts are not episode fragments, we're using the template, not the Rebels episode template, to denote these shorts in Appearances lists. The Rebels episode template should be reserved for episodes only. Thanks. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 19:14, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Beru Lars[edit source]

Hi Nivlacanator. I disagree of your renaming of Beru Lars to Beru Whitesun Lars/Canon. Star Wars in 100 Scenes identifies her as Beru Whitesun during the Episode II section and Beru Lars during the Episode IV section, but I don't recall anything identifying her as Beru Whitesun Lars. Just because Whitesun was mentioned as her maiden name doesn't mean it's part of her full, final name. I could be mistaken, though, so can you point me to where it identified her as Beru Whitesun Lars? - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:04, September 13, 2014 (UTC)

Image uploads[edit source]

Hey Nivlacanator. Friendly reminder to please source and license your images, using the {{Information}} template, when you upload them. The two images you recently uploaded had licensing templates, but they did not use the Information template and did not include a source. This is a requirement of the image policy, which the administrators of Wookieepedia take very seriously. Your upload images could be deleted, and you could be banned, if your images are not sourced and licensed properly. If you have any questions about how to do that, feel free to let me know. I'd be happy to help. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 05:31, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

Templates and references[edit source]

Nivlacanator, please use {{subst:L}} instead of {{L}}, and also please make sure that you actually add the references when changing information like you did here. You've caused a broken ref note. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 04:46, October 15, 2014 (UTC)

Kallus and Fighter Flight[edit source]

Hey. I saw you added "Fighter Flight" to Kallus as an indirect mention. I don't recall that. Can you remind me what the indirect message was? I'm redoing that entire page and want to make sure the information is accurate. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:46, October 25, 2014 (UTC)

Categories[edit source]

Hi Nivlacanator. Please don't add {{Category}} to pages you create. As the creator of a page, it's your responsibility to add categories to it. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 03:48, October 26, 2014 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

In regards to your recent upload for Mission to Bardotta, you forgot to crop the image after taking it from In the future, please remember to do so. Thanks, 501st dogma(talk) 02:35, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

Sentinel Base[edit source]

Oh no, Sentinel Base is the Death Star. Not everything is always spelled out for us directly, but there are enough clues in the book to make it obvious. If you'll note, I'm not the one who originally added information to certain pages regarding the two being one and the same. ProfessorTofty (talk) 09:32, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

  • In your defense, it's a little hard to follow. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 05:57, November 15, 2014 (UTC)

After reading the sampler in July I had decided Sentinel was the Death Star and edited the page accordingly. But after reading the ending of the book I had decided it wasn't. Now I feel kinda silly....loolNivlacanator (talk) 22:06, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

  • Heh, it's alright. Like Brandon said, it is a bit confusing. You do sort of have to read between the lines. ProfessorTofty (talk) 10:27, November 15, 2014 (UTC)

Image[edit source]

Hello. We're going to need you to please correct the sourcing of this image that you recently uploaded. You most definitely did not take that from the TCW episode "Hunt for Ziro." It looks like it came from If you cannot provide a proper source for the image, it will be deleted according to our Image policy. Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 20:31, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

  • Simply adding "" to the image's source field is not good enough, and the fact that you did that just tells me that you have no idea where the image actually came from. You will need to use one of our citation templates to source it to an individual page from the Databank or Encyclopedia, assuming that's even where it comes from. I'm going to give you until the end of today to properly source the image before it is deleted. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 17:12, November 17, 2014 (UTC)
    • This message is to inform you that the Sy Snootles image that you uploaded has been deleted for lack of a proper source. I will also take this opportunity to you issue you yet another formal warning regarding Wookieepedia's image policy. All uploaded images must be attributed with a proper source to cite where the image came from. Falsifying image sourcing is pretty much a zero-tolerance offense here on Wookieepedia, which has already been explained to you once before. In this case, it became evidently clear that you had no idea where the image actually came from, and whether you deliberately added a false source or just guessed and hoped it would stick, at the end of the day it amounts to the same thing. Considering this is far from your first talk page message regarding the proper procedure for uploading and sourcing images, be aware that your next offense will more than likely result in a block from editing. I strongly suggest you pay attention to this from now on. If you don't know where an image comes from and cannot provide a source, don't upload it. Ask around first to see if someone can tell you where it comes from. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 16:31, November 18, 2014 (UTC)

Heir to the Jedi[edit source]

Hey. Can you point me to a source for what you said in this edit summary? I haven't seen that. Thanks. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:44, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

  • I just looked at the excerpt. While it does mention Tosche Station, it doesn't put a time frame on it. Can you look at the excerpt again and point me to where exactly it gives a time frame? Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:14, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

Images of Leia Organa[edit source]

Am I correct in thinking that your intention is to create a distinct category for images of Leia that are strictly canon? Because I've just been placing canon images myself within the old categories that also include the Legends images, i.e. Category:Images of Leia Organa Solo. ProfessorTofty (talk) 08:37, February 14, 2015 (UTC)

Leia Organa[edit source]

Sorry, I wasn't paying attention and I made a small edit on the Leia Organa article to update the linking on an appearance. So, yeah. I don't think it'll really affect any edits you wanted to make on the article, but I thought you should know anyway. ProfessorTofty (talk) 05:26, February 15, 2015 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

Nivlacanator, please use Special:Upload. It's really that simple. Also, please stop uploading files with capitalized extensions (PNG). Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 05:04, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm just going to keep deleting the images until you use Special:Upload. Consider this an official administrative warning on the subject. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 05:20, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
    • Why do you think I keep posting the Special:Upload link? That's how you upload images. Not the "Add image" button in the Oasis skin. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 05:31, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
      • That's the correct form, yes, but the point is to fill out the information before uploading the file. It's policy, and also, your images are unnecessarily small and low-quality; if you're cropping or resizing them in any way, please don't. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 05:40, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
        • I see this is an ongoing issue for you. It is required that EVERY image uploaded has a description, a source and a licensing tag. - JMAS Jolly Trooper.png Hey, it's me! 03:37, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

B-series battle droid[edit source]

Hi Nivlacanator. I saw you added "B-series battle droid" to the appearances section of the first Kanan comic, so I was just wondering where exactly this term was confirmed in canon. Thanks! Cevan (talk) 22:48, February 28, 2015 (UTC)

Royal House of Naboo/Canon[edit source]

Hey. Can you check to see if "Royal House of Naboo" is mentioned in either of the Journeys games? There's a /Canon redlink for that but I don't see the name used anywhere, but I know that Journeys has a lot of re-canonized names. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:22, March 1, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Why so many categories?[edit source]

Well then why are all the other categories like that? Sorted by last names I mean. -- GROUCHMan (MY TRASH CAN) 01:17, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

What do you mean it's done in such a way? -- GROUCHMan (MY TRASH CAN) 01:39, March 8, 2015 (UTC)
I started using the DEFAULTSORT technique. That's preferred, isn't it? -- GROUCHMan (MY TRASH CAN) 01:47, March 8, 2015 (UTC)
I realize that, but I'm NOT trying to do that. I'm trying to make sure that all the articles that should be sorted that way are all sorted that way. I hope you understand. -- GROUCHMan (MY TRASH CAN) 02:07, March 8, 2015 (UTC)
GrouchMan is correct. DEFAULTSORT should be used to place the article into the categories in alphabetical order (see here). Trip391 (talk) 02:24, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

Darth Vader[edit source]

I'm Bad'Wolf. I have been doing a few edits on the Anakin Skywalker/Canon page recently and, given the content of your user page, that you are the one who overturned my edits and returned your old ones which look more like a transcript than a summary. Without forcing you to do anything, wouldn't it be better if such writing went on the page dedicated to the actual comic rather than the character pages. If you are the one concerned, I have once again edited the page to a different style and believe that it is best that way but feel free to correct me if you think I'm wrong. If you are not, then sorry about the inconvenience ^^. --Bad'Wolf (talk) 09:56, March 26, 2015 (UTC)

Princess Leia article[edit source]

Hi! I just noticed you have canon Princess Leia article checked out and I just wanted to let you know that a couple of days ago I made a small edit to update a redirecting link and didn't notice you had it checked out. Sorry about that. Also, when you have a chance, could you please update the redirecting link A New Hope Illustrated Novel to A New Hope: The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy? Thanks in advance! ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:09, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

  • I've never heard of a way to do that. I suppose you could just try placing the Inuse tag at the top of the section you want to work on, but that's not normal practice and I suspect that doing so will probably still cause a warning to appear when people go in to edit no matter what section of the article they try to edit, though I could be wrong. You could also try using {{Wip}} instead, which displays a different message telling people simply to avoid "minor edits," minor, I suppose, being whatever they deem to be minor, though for some reason I've never understood, still displays the exact same message when somebody goes in to edit. ProfessorTofty (talk) 09:00, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Battle of Kaller image[edit source]

Hey Nivlacanator, I was just wondering where you happened to get that new image for the Battle of Kaller without the speech bubble in it. Thanks! Cevan (talk) 14:27, March 28, 2015 (UTC)

In progress page[edit source]

Hi Nivlacanator. Just wanted to apologize if I messed up any of your planned edits on the Skirmish over unidentified green planet page. I completely missed the Inuse tag and just started editing. Sorry once again. Cevan (talk) 19:51, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

No prob' Bob! Calvin Schubert(talk) 19:52, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

Crispus Commons[edit source]

Calvin, since you supported my nomination for Crispus Commons, just thought I'd let you know that I made a couple of updates based on some new information in case you want to have a look. Thanks! ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:46, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

Please do not delete New Republic as this is all confirmed information. Do not delete New Republic as it is confirmed information by Lucasfilm at this URL: Hayden 19:24, April 17, 2015 (UTC)

Merge Unneeded[edit source]

I do not believe we need to merge New Republic with Alliance to Restore the Republic as the two are different organizations. Because of this, I have removed your merge suggestion. However, I am more than willing to talk it out over chat with you to resolve the issue. I am a firm believer that this article must exist, as it will be filled out with much more information when Aftermath and other Canon material comes out. Just let me know, my friend!

Hayden 19:48, April 17, 2015 (UTC)

Update: thank you for helping us resolve this!

Quarrie in "The Siege of Lothal"[edit source]

Hey Nivla. Does Quarrie actually show up in "The Siege of Lothal?" I had thought he wouldn't show up until later in the season. Just curious if you happened to know for sure. Thanks! Cevan (talk) 00:05, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

  • Nevermind; just saw that you meant to add them elsewhere. Cevan (talk) 00:07, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
  • lol, this is going in circles! Nivlacanator(talk) 00:08, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
    • Haha no problem! Just wanted to check. Cevan (talk) 00:09, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Leia Organa[edit source]

As you have Leia Organa checked out right now, could you please change the link or links "Shield generator/Canon" to simply "shield generator"? Thanks! ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:08, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

RE:You speak the language of your people![edit source]

The poster says: "Womp rat hunting season" and below that says: "10 credit per rat". The building seems like it's written in in-universe language, like Aurebesh probably, not korean. Feel free to ask more! Jaewade (talk) 05:19, April 27, 2015 (UTC)

Skirmish over an unidentified green planet[edit source]

Hey, just a heads up, Skirmish over an unidentified green planet has now been archived. Supreme Emperor (talk) 03:28, April 28, 2015 (UTC)

Duel on Stygeon Prime[edit source]

Hey. The article "Mission to Stygeon Prime" was just renamed to Duel on Stygeon Prime, per Ultimate Star Wars. This necessitated some changes to the article, particularly the introduction. As you voted for its Featured Article nomination, I wanted to let you know in the event it in any way changes your vote. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 02:52, April 29, 2015 (UTC)

Page has been moved...[edit source]

Hey Nivlacanator, I know you've been working on the page, and have at least one I wanted to let you know that Mission to steal the Triple-Zero protocol personality matrix has been moved to Mission to steal the Triple-Zero personality matrix. The links to the old page still exist within your user pages here and here. I didn't want to edit anything on your personal pages, so I thought I'd let you know. :) -Effect 04:36, May 11, 2015 (UTC)

Mission to find Aphra[edit source]

Cubert, no, that shouldn't have an article. Articles should be reserved for major battles or conflicts; that's just something that should be covered in the respective characters' articles. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 04:31, May 17, 2015 (UTC)

  • I agree. I don't remember the flashback but presumably it could also be included in the prelude of the triple zero mission. Like Cade said, a good rule of thumb for deciding whether something should have its own article is whether or not it was an actual conflict.- Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:34, May 17, 2015 (UTC)
    • Ok, that's what I thought; just wanted to make sure! Thanks guys. And, is that {VIIspoiler} tag meant to be used on pages like Hans Solo/Canon and others? I.e, not just pages like Jakku, Finn, and BB-8, that aren't only Force Awakens as we know now? 04:40, May 17, 2015 (UTC)

Last Resort[edit source]

Nice job finding that Last Resort image. That's exactly what we were looking for for the Description section. Great contribution. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 20:33, June 1, 2015 (UTC)

New page infoboxes[edit source]

Hi Nivlacanator! Just a quick note, I noticed you created a new article - Lando Calrissian's puffer pig. It's popped up in one of the maintenance categories - Infoboxes with missing parameters. As it suggests, it was missing a few parameters, and the ones that were there were out of order. In future, it's best to use the standard preloads located beneath the edit box. This will mean you won't have any missing parameters, and can make sure the infobox contains all the relevant information. It also saves someone else, such as myself, from adding the missing parameters, and a third or fourth person adding missing information. Have a great week! Manoof (talk) 09:12, June 9, 2015 (UTC)

Boba Fett and other pages[edit source]

It doesn't change the fact that I think that you put too much information on pages, namely the passage on Boba Fett's page about Anakin and Padmé is useless because Boba Fett is not concerned in the slightest by this information. I'm not even talking about writing because things like: "Luke attacked Boba Fett. Prompting him to attack him". It's just bad writing which hurts my eyes when I read it. You also have a tendency to not be subjective enough in your writing, such as in Darth Vader's page when you commented that he was "showing Tagge who was boss" or the "Jedi wannabe" comment in Boba Fett. Not to mention that it seems that you seem to be taking every single sentence they ever said and rewriting it here, which is irritating in character pages and would be much better suited on the pages of the different comics. Besides, no need to comment on how irritating it is to change your edits, you've done it to mine many times without even thinking twice about it, so, please take these things into consideration in the future.

Mission to Cylo's research base edit[edit source]

Hey Nivla; I was just wondering if you could remove "BG2=" from Mission to Cylo's research base. It's an unrecognized infobox parameter, and I didn't want to remove it since you have an {{Inuse}} tag up. Thanks! Cevan (talk) 20:30, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

Categories[edit source]

Cubert, c'mon man. This kind of categorization is overkill. Only the IG-90 category is necessary—the droids, assassin droids, and IG-series categories are super-categories of the to-be-created IG-90 one and thus it's redundant to add them. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 04:48, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

Hey Cubert. Please take note of what Cade said above. Your recently uploaded image, File:Is that amy schumer.jpg, was overly-categorized. Please take a look at the categories I removed so you have a sense of what the categorization should be like. Additionally, I would strongly encourage you not to give images whimsical names like "Is that amy schumer." That's a really bad name for image SEO, because it's not going to show up as well as it could if people search for the character. Thanks. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 01:01, July 6, 2015 (UTC)

Appearances[edit source]

Hi Nivla! I noticed you added Darth Vader 8 to the appearances section of the All Terrain Recon Transport. In the future, could you add these things to the appearances section of the comic page as well? Thanks! Cevan (talk) 17:28, August 13, 2015 (UTC)

Majordomo[edit source]

Hey Nivla! I was just wondering if you could replace the link to "major-domo" on your workbench with "Majordomo/Canon." Thanks! Cevan (talk) 21:30, August 28, 2015 (UTC)

Ackbar[edit source]

Hey Nivla. When you have a moment, could you update the links to "Ackbar" on your user page and your second and third workbenches to "Gial Ackbar/Canon|Gial Ackbar"? Thanks! Cevan (talk) 00:48, September 7, 2015 (UTC)

  • Also, could you update the link to "Star Wars: Shattered Empire 1" on your fifth workbench page to "Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Part I"? Thanks Nivla! Cevan (talk) 22:42, September 9, 2015 (UTC)

Karlsen[edit source]

Hey Nivla. When you have a moment, could you update the link to "Karlsen" on your fourth workbench to "Yale Karlsen"? Thanks! Cevan (talk) 22:44, October 6, 2015 (UTC)

EV-9D9/Canon[edit source]

Hey Cubert, awhile ago you reviewed my nomination for EV-9D9 and listed objections, which you struck when I had taken care of them. I was wondering, could you review the article again due to our dwindling reviewer base and if you would, vote in support of the article getting to GA status? Thanks! - AV-6R7Crew Pit 14:54, October 30, 2015 (UTC)

Venk[edit source]

  • Hi Nivalcanator, I notice you have the beginnings of a page titled Venk on your workbench and was wondering where that particular Imperial officer is identified in the Leia comics? I've looked through all the scenes I remember him being in and haven't found him ever identified as that, is the some other source or have I simply missed it? I'm asking because I'll mention him on Tula and Dreed's page if he is named. Ayrehead02 (talk) 22:08, November 1, 2015 (UTC)

Sana Starros[edit source]

Hey Nivla. When you get the chance, could you update the links to "Sana Solo" on your userpage and fifth workbench to "Sana Starros"? Thanks! Cevan IMPpress.svg (talk) 18:37, November 22, 2015 (UTC)

Han Solo[edit source]

Hey. Why are you removing DerpyDoodle's edits on Han Solo? They're totally a valid edits. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 06:03, December 19, 2015 (UTC)

  • I think I've had my first Cade moment. I was getting annoyed at all the endless edits and lackluster content., and I really don't want to be responsible for someone getting spoiled to that from the infobox. (Which can be seen from just loading-up the page.) So I was just reverting without even really thinking. :/ Thanks for the gentle nudging. Nivlacanator(talk) 07:10, December 19, 2015 (UTC)

Mission to Geonosis FAN[edit source]

Hi Nivlacanator! Regarding context for planets and other locations, "planet Geonosis" or "desert planet Geonosis" is fine, just so that the reader has some idea of what Geonosis is. Imperators II(Talk) 08:28, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

Categorizing images by subject[edit source]

Hi Nivlacanator! I've noticed an issue with several of the images you have uploaded in the past—when you added subject categories to them while uploading, you neglected to check whether those specific categories actually exist; and where they didn't, you did not create them. As a result, such non-existent categories on images are practically useless. Here's an example. In this case, neither Category:Images of starships nor Category:Images of J-type 327 Nubians exist. Please be mindful of this in the future and take the time to create the categories if you add them. Also, please don't add parent categories, such as Category:Images of starships, if you add the more specific category Category:Images of J-type 327 Nubians, as well. Imperators II(Talk) 19:58, January 26, 2016 (UTC)

Secret mission to Geonosis[edit source]

Hi, Nivlacanator. Do you plan on addressing the objections on the Secret mission to Geonosis FAN? I believe some of them have been there for more than a month now. Imperators II(Talk) 21:36, January 31, 2016 (UTC)

Numa[edit source]

Hey. I saw that you re-tagged Numa with {{Inuse}}, but your edit summary was "Argh, I hate school--I should hopefully finish this up soon in time for Homecoming." That suggests to me that you've tagged it without knowing if you'll for sure have time to work on it before the episode airs. So you've put the page into a position where someone else could update it in time for the episode, but they can't because of the tag. I can knock the article for Numa out today. Do you mind if I untag the article? - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:11, February 12, 2016 (UTC)

Reply[edit source]

Hey man, sadly I do not have the book either but I did ask User:Ayrehead02 about it as someone added the appearance to Karina's page and I was checking to make sure, and you can see the reply on my talk page but it is Karina who indeed is the Queen in the Vader comics! Whether there is more info I am not sure so my best bet would to be ask Ayrehead as he has a copy --Lewisr (talk) 04:37, November 14, 2016 (UTC)

Event order[edit source]

Are you sure the Hijacking of the Executor comes after the Skirmish on the Ghost Moon? Cause the timeline has the Vader issues 20-25 taking place before the Star War 21-25 issues which would mean the hijacking came first? It's not easy to work out the order of events as they don't make it clear --Lewisr (talk) 03:47, November 15, 2016 (UTC)

  • I couldn't figure it out myself either, hopefully you may be able too though! Yeah it isn't all too clear so anything you can come up with is great really! Did notice you was going through some of the articles on here, confirming names and working on Aphra which so far looks great btw. No problem thanks man, seems to kill some time so I'm happy to make them --Lewisr (talk) 04:00, November 15, 2016 (UTC)

Tarkin at Sentinel Base[edit source]

Tarkin left Sentinel Base in 14 BBY, five years after the end of the Clone Wars, and had been there for a year by the start of Tarkin. Not sure how that relates to Catalyst (I haven't finished it yet) but since the events of Tarkin all happen in 14 BBY, a year after he was first stationed at Sentinel, he arrived there in 15 BBY. Hope that somewhat clears things up. - Captain Parmenter (talk) 04:07, November 20, 2016 (UTC)

  • Actually Tarkin was there 3 years, 'in the three years Tarkin had been commanding Sentinel and hundreds of nearby supply and sentry outposts' --Lewisr (talk) 04:16, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
    • Yep, just double checked and saw the same thing. For some reason I'd been operatingwith the notion he'd been there for one. My apologies. - Captain Parmenter (talk) 04:19, November 20, 2016 (UTC)

Aphra's father[edit source]

Hey Nivlacanator! Just wanted to get your thoughts on this seens as you are currently in the process of rewriting the Aphra page, also according to the same twitter conversation Aphra will be getting a first name soon just to let you know! --Lewisr (talk) 23:15, November 30, 2016 (UTC)

Doctor Aphra title[edit source]

Why would "Book I, Part I" be the correct title for the Doctor Aphra issue when that doesn't match any of the other ongoing comic titles? Pretty much every ongoing series has Book X, Part X on the title page, but we don't use those. We use the big title at the top, which in this case would be "Aphra". Minomelo (talk) 11:02, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

If you look at the opening crawl page for the issue, it titled as Aphra, Book II, or something close to that, and that's 100% in line with how we've been titling the comics all along. Nivlacanator(talk) 19:13, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

Except it's not in line with them at all. Every ongoing comic has that "Book X, Part X" subheader near the actual title of that book. For example, this is the latest Poe Dameron header. "The Gathering Storm" is title of the third book, and this is the 2nd issue of that book. That issue's page is titled Poe Dameron 9. To match that page's title, the Aphra page should be: Doctor Aphra 1: Aphra, Part I. Minomelo (talk) 00:24, December 17, 2016 (UTC)

Legends links on the Aleen page[edit source]

Yeah, there were a couple of Legends links on the Aleen page, I'm trying to go back through and change them as I go, but its a lot of work. I don't care for the snippy comments "SO MANY" in your edit though; I'm trying. If you see that I have made a mistake, please point it out...politely...and I'll be happy to fix it. This book's been out for nearly a year and its just getting updated; I'd think the goal would be to have an update to the page rather than discouraging people from editing out of fear that a handful of links being misdirected might cause others tremendous exasperation.Purpilia (talk) 07:33, December 21, 2016 (UTC)

  • It's not anything personal, mate, I've been encountering way too many Legends links in lots of canon, so I've just been pointing it out when I do so other editors can also heighten themselves to the slight issue. Sorry for the offense, and happy editing! –Nivlacanator(talk) 08:06, December 21, 2016 (UTC)

Doctor Aphra title... again...[edit source]

File:Vader 1.png

Why did you change the Doctor Aphra comic names back? I wrote a long comment above explaining why the other title is the correct title based on the opening crawl and how the opening crawl is translated into titles in other ongoing comics.

Minomelo (talk) 03:21, December 27, 2016 (UTC)

  • You'll notice if you go back to Darth Vader 1, the title of the issue is exactly that: Vader 1. Doctor Aphra 1: Book I, Part I is titled in the same way, so the article is titled the same way as the titles text just above the crawl. Nivlacanator(talk) 06:45, December 27, 2016 (UTC)
    • What? No it isn't. This is Vader 1's title. There is a big "Vader" in the middle of it, which is the name of the article with "Book 1" nearby because it is from the first book of the series. Aphra's is identical, except for the fact that the book name and the book number have been switched physical location on the page, which is consistent with how all of the more recent books are laid out (such as the Poe one I linked in my previous message). Minomelo (talk) 13:23, December 27, 2016 (UTC)
    • Any chance of getting a reply to this? Minomelo (talk) 14:24, December 29, 2016 (UTC)

Morit Astarte's Orange lightsaber[edit source]

Are you suggesting that the lightsaber wielded by the Morit Astarte contains a synthetic crystal? or you don't agree on the color cause it's pretty orange. I would just like to know where you stand on this.

  • Well, Cylo's philosophy was that he believed the Force to be obsolete, and kyber crystals require an affinity to the Force in order to be used in a lightsaber, so I doubt Morit and Aiolin's sabers contained kybers. Also, the art seems to suggest that when the sabers clashed against Vader's it crackled in a way that two kyber-powered sabers don't. –Nivlacanator(talk) 05:00, December 27, 2016 (UTC)

I understand where you're coming from but I thought synthetic kyber crystals could only be green in canon, thus leaving us with the conclusion that that lightsaber is indeed made with a real kyber crystal. Cylo also worked for the emperor in which case he probably had access to lightsabers from dead jedi. Should it at least be mentioned that orange lightsabers do exist but we can't tell for sure if that color originates from a kyber crystal. Maybe the crystal became orange because the force user who made the saber was unique in his ways. Similarly to Windu.

Time travel in "Doctor Aphra"[edit source]

Hey there! Perhaps you'll be able to help me get something: did the second issue of Doctor Aphra actually feature the notion of time travel? I don't have my issue right at hand, so I can't check, but I can't seem to remember anything like that. --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol.svg (Audience Room) 20:48, January 2, 2017 (UTC)

  • Hmm, yeah, after taking another look I may have been a bit presumptuous in calling out time travel as being one of the Aspectu's goals. I believe my thinking was that by possibly "ascending to a higher existence" the Aspectu had to travel through time. –Nivlacanator(talk) 21:05, January 2, 2017 (UTC)

Help[edit source]

System thing[edit source]

The reason I do it its because for people who died in a ship we never add or never saw someone adding the system, see Death Star personnel or Raymus Antilles dying in the Tantive IV --DarthRuiz30 (talk) 01:38, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

  • Yeah, I figured that was why. No worries. I've been correcting such pages when I see them. Priority one is making the wiki better, not staying with what's always been done. :D –Nivlacanator(talk) 01:54, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

Another question, are you going to leave the Skirmish in Grakkus' arena redirect?--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 05:05, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

  • I honestly still have little idea of how to actually go about doing that. –Nivlacanator(talk) 05:14, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

      • Sure, we can do that. But ho do we start, and where is a list of the pages that it links to? I'm so lost. –Nivlacanator(talk) 05:48, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

Krennic and Galen Erso[edit source]

Hey, glad to see you back btw! Just wanted to ask, I remember a while back you added Krennic as being indreictly mentioned in Lost Stars and was wondering if you could pin point to where that was in the novel? Also I notice you just added Galen as being indireclty mentioned in Bloodline, would you be able to pin point me to that too please --Lewisr (talk) 21:26, June 19, 2017 (UTC)

  • Thanks, Lewis! In Lost Stars, Ciena remarks something along "would have hated to be the officer responsible for losing the Death Star plans" probably half way through the novel. And in Bloodlone, there's a paragraph that talks about an Imperial engineer who must have sabotaged the station project for the Alliance to have destroyed it so easily. Cheers. –Nivlacanator(talk) 21:54, June 19, 2017 (UTC)
    • Awesome, thanks a lot for letting me know! --Lewisr (talk) 21:58, June 19, 2017 (UTC)

Blank upload template[edit source]

Normally I would fix something like this when it's an obvious oversight from a user who generally knows their stuff, but in this case it's from a source I don't care to know anything about. 😛 So I'm going to have to ask you to go back and handle it. Thanks. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 00:30, June 28, 2017 (UTC)

Adventures #1[edit source]

I don't think those appearances belong there. They definitely aren't on any Star Wars Tales or Clone Wars Adventures pages. If you really want them there, at least put them after the 'Publisher's summary' and 'Contents' sections, so a page for a recent release doesn't look as out of line with other pages. Thanks.--ZapikCZ (talk) 16:49, September 7, 2017 (UTC)

File extensions[edit source]

Hey there. Just wanted to bring something up about image/file extensions. If you upload a JPEG file, please be sure to change it to just JPG before you upload it. If you look at the categories for your recent upload File:Han Threepio R2 Chewie Falcon in Echo base.jpeg, you'll see that it got added to Category:Images with extended extensions in filename, which means eventually it will end up having to be re-uploaded because it is preferred here to only use JPG instead of the longer JPEG extension. Some sources, like have their images with the JPEG format, but 9 times out of 10, if you right click on the image and go to "View Image," then shorten the extension from jpeg to jpg, and hit enter, the image will reload and then you can save it with the jpg file extension.

  • The three individuals are a group of scavengers Han encounters while shipwrecked with Chewie after dumping the cargo Jabba is still mad about in A New Hope. And Han compares the yacht Nodo owns to the one Vos of the Crimson Dawn had. Surprising to hear of that, for sure!
