Wookieepedia aspires to be a reliable source for all Star Wars fans to read and draw information from, and as such, fan-created continuity and fan fiction are not allowed within our articles. All in-universe material must be attributable to a reliable, published source.

Do not remove talk page and forum comments, including your own, as they are part of the public record. Remember that you should always sign your comments on talk and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~.

For an optimal viewing experience, Wookieepedia recommends using the Monobook skin. For help changing your skin preference, see Help:Skin.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wookieepedian! If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the Senate Hall, visit our official IRC channel, or ask me on my talk page. May the Force be with you! —Lewisr (talk) 18:11, January 14, 2017 (UTC)

Making pages[edit source]

If you make pages you're supposed to actually put something on it please, not just make it and add nothing then put incomplete on it. --Lewisr (talk) 16:41, June 21, 2017 (UTC)

Marvel[edit source]

Hi thanks for updating the Marvel Comics page, but please when a TPB or HC comes out instead of just removing the information from the Forthcoming collection section, remove it and add it again to the Published collections sections. Thanks--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 04:08, December 21, 2017 (UTC)

  • Again if something was released, move it to the Published section--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 20:07, April 3, 2018 (UTC)

Sourcing[edit source]

Please be more careful while filling the information on your uploads. Be sure that all is correct, for example you uploaded a SW comic cover that you sourced to a Darth Vader comic and categorized into a Doctor Aphra comic. Also be sure that the source link is correct. Thanks--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 20:12, April 15, 2018 (UTC)

SW Adventures 18[edit source]

Hi, please stop removing the placeholder cover from the gallery. That image was used as a temporary/solicitation cover in Amazon hence why its placed there. --DarthRuiz30 (talk) 23:06, January 24, 2019 (UTC)

Image summaries[edit source]

Hi, Nobrainer! When editing image summaries, please note that the artist categories should be placed after "|cat artist=," and not in the licensing section. Thanks. - Cwedin(talk) 20:41, February 9, 2019 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit source]

Please avoid writing edit summaries that aren't about the content changed. Eventually the covers will be added when someone has the time to do it--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 20:34, March 28, 2019 (UTC)

  • Just to reinforce this, Wookieepedia:Civility specifically mentions "Judgmental tone in edit summaries ("fixed sloppy spelling," "snipped rambling crap")" as an example of incivility. Please try to avoid such a tone, it doesn't help anyone, it comes across as immature and so brings down the image of this community, and if anything will just annoy users patrolling RC and the page history. Thank you for your cooperation. Tommy Imperial Emblem.svg Macaroni 16:32, July 14, 2019 (UTC)
    • Also do not send talk messages just to demand something. As I said the covers will be eventually added when someone has the time to do it and its interested in doing it --DarthRuiz30 (talk) 20:11, July 14, 2019 (UTC)

Edits[edit source]

Please, pay attention to your edits. Thanks--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 23:55, July 11, 2019 (UTC)

Warning[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. --DarthRuiz30 (talk) 20:46, July 26, 2019 (UTC)

  • Once again I remind you that you need to source all your edits, otherwise the information may be reverted and you're going to be blocked for continuing to add unverified information.--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 00:44, August 1, 2019 (UTC)

Page creation[edit source]

You need to stop creating nearly-empty articles like these. If you're going to create an article, you should take a look at Wookieepedia:Manual of Style and Wookieepedia:Layout Guide so you know what you're doing. In the case of these IDW artists, you have to bother to fill out the 'Bibliography' section with the issues they worked on. Fan26 (Talk) 15:58, August 16, 2019 (UTC)

  • You've already been asked about doing this, so why exactly are you still doing it? Please follow the rules or you're gonna end up being banned --Lewisr (talk) 14:55, August 18, 2019 (UTC)

Warning[edit source]

I remind you once again that you need to add the new source into the article don't just post it in the edit summary, continuing to ignore this will lead you to a block. Thanks--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 00:14, August 25, 2019 (UTC)

Edits[edit source]

Please put some effort in the articles you create. Link everything you can like this. Here are some examples of how you can improve your edits. (Example 1, Example 2)--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 01:01, September 8, 2019 (UTC)

Grammar[edit source]

Please pay attention to the grammar of your articles. You make several mistakes repeatedly. Fan26 (Talk) 19:10, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

Warning: Images[edit source]

While all good-faith contributions to Wookieepedia are appreciated, we ask that you please refer to Wookieepedia:Images and familiarize yourself with the sourcing and licensing requirements before uploading any more images. The only uploading method supported by Wookieepedia, Special:Upload, will prompt you to enter this information. Continued violation of the image policy or falsification of any information in an upload description are considered vandalism and will likely result in a block. Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 18:36, September 16, 2019 (UTC)

  • Since it's clear you haven't bothered reading this warning or the Image policy page—or, really, any of the warnings you've been issued on your talk page recently—I'm going to be nice and tell you this once: Images are to be uploaded using lowercase file extensions, which means changing JPG to jpg. This is explained clearly on the Image policy page already linked for you, if you would bother to make an effort at reading it and abiding by our site rules. Continued failure to abide by these practices will result in a block from editing. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 19:22, September 16, 2019 (UTC)

Inuse[edit source]

When a page is marked as being "in use" by another editor, you should not edit it. Fan26 (Talk) 15:35, September 19, 2019 (UTC)

Do not edit a a page when you see the "in use" sign--Doctor Starwars (talk) 18:59, October 23, 2019 (UTC)

Do not remove the Appearances section from any page.--Doctor StarwarsTalk 16:20, October 31, 2019 (UTC)

New pages[edit source]

Please put more effort into the new pages you're creating. There are several simple things that you could be doing. (See here or here.) Thank you. - Cwedin(talk) 18:40, February 7, 2020 (UTC)

Warning[edit source]

This is your last warning before you get blocked from editing. Source all your edits, you can't create something without a source.--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 22:48, April 25, 2020 (UTC)

Image categorization[edit source]

Please don't add starwars.com concept art to image categories for individual episodes. If the image isn't directly captured from the episode, then it doesn't belong in the episode's image category either. Thank you. 1358 (Talk) 17:53, April 27, 2020 (UTC)

Images being uploaded[edit source]

Wookieepedia is not an image repository and image galleries are not permitted. There is no reason for uploading all the concept art you have been lately as there is no possible way that all of it can fit into the pages of the subject matter. - JMAS Jolly Trooper.png Hey, it's me! 18:47, May 24, 2020 (UTC)

Hello[edit source]

Hi i habe a new wiki it could use ingi on sw

Rossduntiks5 (talk) 20:10, May 27, 2020 (UTC)

Cite web backups[edit source]

Hello. When adding backups to {{Cite web}} citations, you need to include both "archiveurl" and "archivedate" fields for the backup link to display. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 15:17, June 6, 2020 (UTC)

  • Just to add, the slash at the end of the URL should be removed when using the template. Shayanomer Din Djarin's clan.svg (talk) 15:21, June 6, 2020 (UTC)

Blocked[edit source]

Dialog-error.svg You have been blocked from editing for 1 day for creating articles without attribution or verification, the most recent being here. You were explicitly warned that the next instance would result in a block from editing. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 15:34, July 1, 2020 (UTC)

Categorization[edit source]

Hello. Please note that whenever you create a new category, including an image category, you have to add appropriate categories to the category page itself, like this. Thank you. Imperators II(Talk) 06:23, July 13, 2020 (UTC)

Furthermore, when tagging empty categories for deletion, please include a deletion reason using {{delete|reason goes here}}. Thanks. 1358 (Talk) 10:49, July 29, 2020 (UTC)

Blocked[edit source]

Dialog-error.svg You have been blocked from editing for 1 week for creating articles without sourcing/attribution. You've been warned many times for this, and this is your second block for this offense in this month alone. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 16:15, July 31, 2020 (UTC)

Blocked[edit source]

Dialog-error.svg You have been blocked from editing for 2 weeks for creating articles without attribution, your third such block since July 1 of this year. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 19:14, August 17, 2020 (UTC)

Warning[edit source]

You have been warned about proper sourcing. Uploading files without a proper source is a bannable offense. The Star Wars Adventures Annual 2020 hasn't been released so you cannot use it as a source for your image, you need to provide the website where that image can be found. --DarthRuiz30 (talk) 23:05, September 21, 2020 (UTC)

Image categories[edit source]

It is the accepted rule that an image category is only created once there are at least 2 images to populate the category. With that in mind, please do not create an image category until there are two or more images in the category. Thanks. - JMAS Jolly Trooper.png Hey, it's me! 19:22, September 29, 2020 (UTC)

Please don't just slap new categories outside the accepted template within image files. Put them where they belong please. It is blatantly obvious where they belong within the {{Information}} template and it just causes extra work for other people to come and fix. Thank you. - JMAS Jolly Trooper.png Hey, it's me! 21:03, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Tagging pages for deletion[edit source]

When you want a page deleted, you should not be removing all content from that page and manually adding [[Category:Candidates for speedy deletion]]. Instead, you should keep all the content on the page and place {{Delete}} at the top, which should also include a reason for the deletion request. Thank you for your cooperation. Tommy-Macaroni 09:40, October 3, 2020 (UTC)

  • I don't appreciate you ignoring my message and continuing to do this. Use {{Delete}} like everyone else or further action will be taken against you. Don't let it come to that. Tommy-Macaroni 14:55, October 9, 2020 (UTC)

Blocked[edit source]

Dialog-error.svg You have been blocked from editing for 1 month for abusing the upload function (WP:I) despite several warnings. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. --DarthRuiz30 (talk) 00:48, October 13, 2020 (UTC)

CSD[edit source]

First, never do this, you must use the {{Delete}} template where you must indicate your reasoning for the deletion.--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 03:13, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Formatting[edit source]

Hello. It would be preferable if you removed the duplicate "Summary" heading with the additional spaces instead of the one with the correct formatting. The formatting difference could be clearly seen using the source editor, where headings should not have unnecessary spaces and instead look like this. Thanks. - - -OOM 224 ༼༽{talk}༼༽ 22:13, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Chill[edit source]

Chill out, ok? The user who uploaded that image isn't doing that on purpose. This is a known Fandom bug that's causing "Summary" to show up twice when images are uploaded. We're hoping it will be fixed soon. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 23:15, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Summary on images[edit source]

Hello, thanks for removing the duplicate summary on an image I uploaded. I'm not sure if you're aware, but its double appearance is a bug from the UCP migration, not something intentional on my part. Cheers! JediMasterMacaroniAdmiral Ackbar RH.png(Conversation) 23:17, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Congrats[edit source]

I couldn't resistant congratulating you on 8k Nobrainer, it's such a satisfying number! :) MrHappyJohn (talk) 22:52, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Blocked[edit source]

Dialog-error.svg You have been blocked from editing for 2 months for continued violation of Wookieepedia's Image policy, your second such block in the last three months. This most recent violation is for falsifying the source field of this image (now deleted). To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 03:44, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

File naming[edit source]

Please note that for the sake of consistency all JPEG files are uploaded with the short-form extension ".jpg" -- not ".jpeg", as most of your recent uploads have been named. Please refer to the "Filenames" section of the Image policy for more information in order to avoid being blocked again. Thanks! -- Darth Culator (Talk) 17:55, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

File:DoctorAphra208.jpeg[edit source]

Dialog-error.svg You have been blocked from editing for 1 week, for failure to abide by WP:I rule 6.5 after being explicitly warned. I have only blocked you for a week even though you have had longer blocks already, because I do not think you are doing this maliciously, but neither ignorance nor carelessness are acceptable excuses. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. Darth Culator (Talk) 23:17, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit source]

Thank you for contributing to Wookieepedia! When editing, please remember to provide an edit summary more often. This helps your fellow Wookieepedians, particularly those patrolling the Recent changes, understand why you are making certain changes. Thanks! JediMasterMacaroniAdmiral Ackbar RH.png(Talk) 16:45, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

File extensions[edit source]

All JPEG files should be uploaded with the short-form extension ".jpg" instead of ".jpeg" Please refer to your latest block by Culator, thank you. OOM 224 ༼༽talk༼༽ 19:05, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Sourcing[edit source]

Hi, Nobrainer. Please remember to properly reference edits like this one. (The images are similar, but that reference does not support your claim.) Also, images like File:CamuHR4.jpg need to have your original source listed, i.e. a website and backup link. Thanks. - Cwedin(talk) 19:32, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Please do not edit other user pages[edit source]

Hi, I appreciate you're trying to help but please don't edit other user's pages like you have done to my page here. It's against policy, see Wookieepedia:User page and profile policy#Rules, item 9:

"No user or bot may edit another user's user page or subpage without their express permission. This includes maintenance edits, such as fixing redlinks or redirects, but does not apply to the addition of {{Inactive}} or administrative removal of inappropriate content."

Plume Tray (talk) 23:02, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Bibliographies[edit source]

Hi, Nobrainer. Please make sure that you are correctly formatting comic books when you put them in a Bibliography section. The correct form is [[Star Wars (2015) 10|''Star Wars'' 10]], not [[Star Wars (2015) 10]]. Thank you. VergenceScatter (talk) 23:24, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

Hi—there's actually no need to add skip to images that list companies in the artist field, seeing as they're doing it erroneously, as you've done here. I've actually requested for a bot to remove those instances, which should be handled shortly. JediMasterMacaroniAdmiral Ackbar RH.png(Talk) 00:07, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
