Re: Changes to Species[]

Hello Richterbelmont10. I reverted your edit because you didn't put the "See also" section in the right place. According to the Manual of Style, this section must be placed before "External links" and not "Behind the scenes". Moreover, I've never seen "See also" being used for links to categories. I asked about my revert to an administrator, User:Eyrezer, who confirmed that it had been the right thing to do. And sorry for not explaining my reasons in the edit summary. You're right, I should've done that in the first place.--LennyF (talk) 10:33, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

  • You're not wrong, it's not always easy to find what you're looking for. You could ask one of the administrators to help you out. That's all I can tell you. Cheers.--LennyF (talk) 16:20, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

Bifurcating cyclical-ignition[]

Bifurcating cyclical-igniton...If the modification process is there, should it be summarized or described at all in the article? I forgot about messing with articles and talk pages generally, but the question was not if the modification existed, or where. It was how do you build the modification. It says Kit Fisto put the how-to-do-it in the Great Holocron. 20:26, July 17, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for lending answers[]

I am grateful for answering my question on the Bifurcating ignition-pulse modification to lightsabers. Again...We are back to glitterstim. Inside joke. The details on how something works are left out. Based from the terms used to describe the modification, I'd guess it had something to do with causing a double-stroke pattern of ignitions pulsing up the blade, keeping it lit and strong against the water. It would mean it could not be overpowered, I'm supposing. Don't quote me...this is speculation...And that means hush, hush. Right? Well, thanks for telling me no one has cracked open that little piece of tech to see the details. Perhaps one day we will have the right answer. Have a good day.

Pressure Grip list[]

Hey, sorry it took so long to get back to you. I removed the list of notable users because categories are preferred over lists. Supreme Emperor (talk) 14:52, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

  • There probably should be a category, the other reason I removed the list was because it was unsourced. Supreme Emperor (talk) 15:27, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Vibro-ax Melee weapon category[]

Because vibroweapons is a subcat of melee weapons. Trip391 (talk) 17:46, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

  • Makes sense. That's why when you click on the melee weapons category, vibroweapons shows up as a subcat. Vibro-ax is a subcat of vibroweapons. Trip391 (talk) 17:54, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
    • I know what you're saying, but having everything listed there can overpopulate the category. That's why subcats exist. Trip391 (talk) 18:10, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
      • Then the answer is no. Vibro-ax is a subcat of vibroweapons, which is a subcat of melee weapons. It's redundant to have vibro-ax in the melee weapon category, then in a subcat of melee weapon, ie vibroweapon. And thanks for pointing out that error, it's been fixed. Trip391 (talk) 18:20, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
  • Per this consensus, all categories possible are listed. —GethralkinHyperwave 18:42, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
    • Actually, if you look in the layout guide: "Articles placed in categories should not also be placed in that category's master category; for example, articles in Category:Aquatic sentient species should not also be placed in Category:Sentient species." Trip391 (talk) 18:44, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
      • I'm confused. Are you saying that any item that's listed in a subcategory cannot be listed in the master category? What about duplicates in subcategories? For example, why is vibro-ax in Category:Edged weapons, Category:Vibro-axes, and Category:vibroweapons. All these categories are sub-categories of Category:Melee weapons. Isn't that also redundant?--Richterbelmont10 (talk) 19:40, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
        • Vibro-ax is also in the vibro-ax category because it's the master item for that category. Trip391 (talk) 19:44, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
        • Does this mean you are going to remove all Edged Weapons, Blunt Weapons, and Whips from Category:Melee weapons?--Richterbelmont10 (talk) 20:00, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
          • If they're found, then yea, they're not supposed to be there in the first place. Trip391 (talk) 20:03, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
            • If you like, I can help recategorize. But I see you and Gethralkin working on them now.--Richterbelmont10 (talk) 20:12, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

"What is this" in talk pages[]

Hey Richter, I see that you're correcting weapons categories. While that's fine, please be sure to properly look at the article (and if you can, the source) before creating talk pages and asking what the weapon is. In the case of Pain pulser, there's no image of it, and TCW only mentioned it. Try to look out for these clues in other articles. I hope you see what I mean. Thanks, JangFett (Talk) 01:33, July 24, 2013 (UTC)

  • I'm trying. I don't always have the source to look at. When I do, I spend time looking through the book trying to find mention of the weapon, but many times I can't find it. It's hard with no page numbers to go by. That's why I make a talk page and hope someone else can help. Anyway, in what category should I put the Pain pulser?--Richterbelmont10 (talk) 01:39, July 24, 2013 (UTC)
  • Here's an example of what I'm talking about: In Particle beam cannon article, it lists The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia in its sources. However, when I look at Volume 3 of the Encyclopedia, there is no entry called "Particle beam cannon" or even "Particle beam." There's "Particle shielding" and "Particle vapor trail." So I don't know where else to look in the Encyclopedia. I've had similar problems with other articles where I search the source and can't find the subject anywhere.--Richterbelmont10 (talk) 01:53, July 24, 2013 (UTC)


Hey, I'm proposing that the Layout Guide CT be expanded to include technology; please give your input on the CT. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 02:23, July 24, 2013 (UTC)


Actually... it's not a weapon at all, it's likely a bug. Thanks for bringing my attention to it, I had misread the first time. Cheers. Stake black msg 18:04, July 24, 2013 (UTC)

  • I don't own the book, I created Oowor based on CUSWE, which is now dead, unfortunately. Sorry. Stake black msg 18:36, July 24, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Hammer (Z-6 rotary blaster cannon)[]

It probably should be, there are a few other blaster cannons in the category that are portable as well.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest.svg (Greetings) 22:13, July 24, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Corso Riggs's weapons[]

Hmmm, now that I think about it, I can't think of seeing any other categories like that. I think that Cade created the category. I just added some articles in.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest.svg (Greetings) 04:03, September 24, 2013 (UTC)

Hey. You were apparently caught in an old ban. I've removed it now. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 19:49, April 10, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Image retouching[]

Hi! In fact, I didn't use any program to retouch the ronto image, I've just retrieved it from the artist page. Sorry... Maguinic (talk) 09:47, June 12, 2014 (UTC)


If you're referring to Togruta, there was nothing wrong with the formatting of the images. Because of the long infobox, images next to the infobox need to "float" on the right side of the article. If you pile the images on the left side (without div tags), the article would look unkempt and unorganized. The div tags are there for a reason, Richter. JangFett (Talk) 20:34, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

  • For this sort of article, however, the right-left-right guideline doesn't work because of the long infobox. Once the article becomes longer and less compact, then the guideline could be applied. The only possible way I could see this working is if we remove a number of images from the Togruta article. You'll notice that if you remove the div html tags, the images will "push" the article downward, effectively pushing the appearance box downward as well. JangFett (Talk) 21:02, June 19, 2014 (UTC)
    • It didn't look right, I'm afraid. JangFett (Talk) 21:18, June 19, 2014 (UTC)


Richter, please organize Hour's appearance section. Every IU appearance needs to be in chronological order, per WP:LG. JangFett (Talk) 20:41, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Timeline of Legends media[]

Good work on the sourcing of the Timeline of Legends media. I did have a couple issues with your edits.

The Timeline of Legends media is in a slightly different structure than the Essential Reading Companion. In the ERC, Hidalgo favors putting long-spanning books at the end of their chronology, but the general rule for the timeline is wherever Chapter 1 starts. So any "flashbacks" within a story do not change the timeline placement, but if a novel is a flashback, as in the case of The Wrath of Darth Maul where the Prologue introduces the flashback, then it is placed at the start of Chapter 1 (51 BBY) and not at the start of the Prologue (21 BBY). So the original placement was correct, 51 BBY-c. 21 BBY. Epilogues are also ignored for the purposes of the date ranges.

Also, note that sometimes you are changing dates based on the ERC, but the subtext and reference for The Essential Chronology are still there, and those dates conflict. See the Han Solo and Lando Calrissian trilogies.

Lastly, the ERC does not use half years, so while 0 ABY is an accurate date for first few Galaxy of Fear books, 0.5 ABY is more precise and preferable, especially due to the glut of media that is set in 0 ABY. See also Shadows of the Empire. Tainb'ocu'chulainn (talk) 15:46, July 21, 2014 (UTC)

  • I'll move The Wrath of Darth Maul back to 51 BBY-c. 21 BBY but I won't source it, since the ERC presents it otherwise. I'll take a look at The Essential Chronology and try to resolve the conflicting dates. I'll see what I can do about the half-year notation while staying as faithful as possible to the way it's presented in the source. Also note that I've changed some dates without actually moving them to the correct place in the timeline table. I planned to finish sourcing first and then sort the table properly afterwards.--Richterbelmont10 R2 sig.jpg(come in R2!) 17:46, July 21, 2014 (UTC)
    • ERC is the latest source, so it should probably have the priority over The Essential Chronology (or better, The New Essential Chronology). My point was mainly to remove the deprecated reference to TEC when it's been updated in ERC. I'd assumed you were going to fix the sorting since you were still in progress. Thanks. Tainb'ocu'chulainn (talk) 19:19, July 21, 2014 (UTC)
  • Tales of the Jedi comics have duplicate or redundant references.

The subtexts "Date established in The Essential Chronology" and "Date established in narrative text" are probably unnecessary with references to TEC or ERC added.

Rise and Fall of Darth Vader belongs in 38 BBY. Same as Wrath of Darth Maul and Life of Obi-Wan Kenobi, it has a present-day (4 ABY) prologue, and Chapter 1 begins in 38 BBY. The Bounty Hunter Trilogy is a great counter-example. Chapter 1 starts post-ROTJ, and flashes back to 0 ABY.
The Dark Forces video game begins in 0 BBY, as the first mission is to steal plans for the Death Star.

Tatooine Sojourn does not span 0.5-2 ABY (TEC is vague with those dates), the most accurate date is likely 0 ABY, prior to the evacuation of Yavin, due to the call sign "Massassi-One". The rest of the Early Adventures are more accurately placed where they were in the timeline, not in the 0.5-2 ABY range. Please don't use the wide ranges in TEC unless you confirm they are as accurate as possible.

Tales from Jabba's Palace: A Bad Feeling: The Tale of EV-9D9 definitely begins in 0/0.5 ABY and spans to 4 ABY.

Galaxy of Fear were correct where they were. The first several are 0.5 ABY, then the last ones are six months after the first.

Remember, for all but the most egregious errors, ERC is more authoritative than TEC, because it is newer. There is a lot of additional research that was done, but not sourced to place these media.

The Band's Tale was accurately listed as starting in 0.5 ABY, but should probably be listed as spanning to 4 ABY.

Salacious Crumb's story shouldn't be placed in 4 ABY.

The New Essential Chronology places the Jedi Prince series in 5 ABY.

The dates for the Dark Nest Trilogy were correct as they were. ERC lists them as a group, but Joiner King is in 35 ABY while the other two are in 36 BBY.

I'm not sure why the ERC puts Imprint into the New Jedi Order Era, but then says the Legacy era runs from 37+ ABY. Imprint really belongs in the Legacy era.

The half year dates in the Legacy era are correct as well. See the book articles for the link to the detailed sequence of events that was posted by Sue Rostoni.

Omen flashes back to 41 ABY, not 43 ABY.

Gallery links[]

Hey. You don't need to add Databank gallery links into a sources section. That's covered by the link to the subject's main Databank entry. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 19:48, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

  • I thought it was helpful for people who don't know about the biography galleries, and that the galleries contain text with additional biographical information in them. More Canon information might encourage Wookieepedians to expand the Canon articles. Many of these articles are just stubs and should be filled out more quickly.--Richterbelmont10 R2 sig.jpg(come in R2!) 19:59, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
    • By and large, most Wookieepedians have opted to not focus on canon pages. Most Wookieepedians do not agree with the Canon/Legends split and have no interest in adding to canon pages. As a result, there's only a small pool of us who work on canon pages, so it will take awhile to have a truly comprehensive offering of canon information. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:04, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

Image brightening[]

  • Richter, what exactly did you do to that image of the laser projector? If you brightened it, that's essentially photoshop and that changes the validity of the image. It was a dark scene, so the image is dark. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 19:06, October 4, 2014 (UTC)

Given the large number of redirects to correct, some of which appear to be in status articles, I'll hold off on moving the page until I can arrange a bot to run through the articles linked to it.

Hi, just wanted to let you know that I undid your changes to the placement of The Clone Wars film in the Timeline of Legends Media. Lucasfilm previously released a chronology of The Clone Wars including it in the place it was in the timeline, and also, having seen the film and the surrounding episodes myself, I know that it was in the correct spot (as Season 2: Episode 16 and Season 1: Episode 16 are direct prequels to the film, and flow right into it). I believe you that the date is probably off (should be 22 BBY instead of 21 BBY), but that would actually place it earlier in the timeline, not later, so if it did need to be moved, it would have to be moved the other direction. Anyway, if it does take place in 22 BBY, that would probably actually mean that all of the works that take place before it chronologically and are labelled as taking place in 21 BBY would probably need to be altered to reflect a date of 22 BBY as well. I do not believe that the location of the film should be moved at all.Unsigned comment by Kiaru1138 (talk • contribs).

  • I had no idea that was the case. Thanks for the heads up! Ayrehead02 (talk) 09:46, October 27, 2015 (UTC)

Canon/Legends articles[]

So, I have a quick question, and I'm not sure where or who to ask about.

But in regards to Canon/Legends articles, the Legends article will feature an image that either is different in the Canon article (Aayla Secura, Geonosian, Coruscant, for example), or does not even appear in the Canon article when Canon material explicitly shows it. (Such as Nahdar Vebb's lightsaber).

Then there are articles featuring characters appearing in the canon, but are labeled Legends. (Clonetrooper CC-3714, for example).

Is the wiki still in the process of "sorting" Canon and Legends material and these particular articles have not been looked over yet? - User:11Morey December 29, 2015 7:12 PM (EST)

  • Wookieepedia still has many Canon articles that are missing and need to be filled out. The example of CC-3714 is a good example of that, as I look at his Appearances, it includes the The Clone Wars, which is Canon. Therefore he should have a Canon article, but it has not been created yet. As for images, we can't place every single image into every single article. According to the Layout Guide, images should not interrupt the flow of the article. If you have any more questions about Wookieepedia, feel free to post them in the Forum:Senate Hall!--Richterbelmont10 R2 sig.jpg(come in R2!) 05:24, December 30, 2015 (UTC)
