Revan articleEdit

Can you please stop editing back in the picture of Revan on Taris. While i know you are changing the picture in good taste i must tell you the picture isn't that good. The main reason being his cloak. It's flater that a table! Jasca Ducato 09:12, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Whoops, sorry :) Rod

InfoboxEdit

You need to fill in every parameter of the infobox or it messes up pretty badly. Phillowe88 21:55, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

DroidsEdit

Can you provide official, verifiable sources for the astromech droids you are adding? - Kwenn 19:17, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

InfoboxesEdit

  • Please stop adding the Sith infoboxes to those who weren't Sith. QuentinGeorge 03:10, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
    • But they were Sith. Or, at least affiliated with them. For example: Exar Kun was a Jedi most of his life, yet he has a Sith infobox. It seems that being a Sith takes pecedence over being... something else. I am merely pointing out that these characters were Sith at sometime or other. Rod
      • The sith infobox is for character that were actual Sith - ie, force-sensitive members of the Sith Order. NOT bounty hunters, assassins or otherwise affiliated members. Nor is it for those who left the order before they died - like Ulic or Bastila. QuentinGeorge 03:17, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
        • Yeek. Sorry, didn't know that... Rod
  • Also, stop removing the Sith minion category form HK-47. As he was a non-Force using member of the Sith Empire it belongs there. Kuralyov 21:39, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Pilots picsEdit

I image there is going to be some debate over whether or not those pics will be suitable for being infobox pics. We can argue the semantics later, but will you at least wait until after you've uploaded the pages to make the switch? -- SFH 00:39, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Upload first, then switch. Gotcha. I grabbed them from a Japanese site based on the cards, and a lot of our pictures of minor characters named by the cards seem to come from there. The "canon priority" thing comes from a time that I tried editing the Kadann article. I replaced the image with one of the Prophet, alone. It was reverted almost instantly because it was from Jedi Prince=low canon priority. I inferred from that, that it seems bad pic but higher canon priority > good pic, low canon priority. Rod
    • I'd disagree with that in any cases where a character is pictured unmasked in the EU: the EU picture then takes priority. Unless we're talking Boba Fett or Darth Vader, that is. Also, a lot of the pictures on the cards are manipulated, and didn't actually appear in the films. —Silly Dan (talk) 00:49, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
      • Exactly. The pictures of characters in TIE pilot flight suits are inferior to images that actually show the person. And just because a card says something doesn't mean it's in the movie. Fleet Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 01:01, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
        • OK, and thanks for leaving them there, albeit in another place. And also, congrats on the promotion, Fleet Admiral. A toast, to long life, and to no more Crumb. Rod

Evil Never DiesEdit

Not all of the darksiders in that article should be in the Sith acolytes and apprentices category. To name a few, Volfe Karkko and the Ismarens were not trained by Sith, and were neither acolytes nor apprentices of the Sith - Kwenn 21:26, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Well, Karkko mebbe, but the Ismarens were Emperor's Hands, trained by Palpatine (Sith). Volfe and the Ismarens don't seem much different, too me at least, than Jerec and Asajj, etc., who made it into that category. Rod

Dark Acolytes Edit

Stop putting them all in the Sith category. The ones that are there already are there for a reason, and the ones who aren't there aren't there for a reason. Kuralyov 03:46, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Oooookeeeeeyyy, you're the boss, boss. I was just wondering why Asajj got one and the others didn't. Rod
    • A lot of them aren't there because we can't prove they were trained in Sith ways. Heck they may have not even been trained in dark side arts, simply corrupted to the dark side. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 20:19, 24 June 2006 (UTC)
      • Huh..... I guess that works.... Rod
      • I still belive they should be there, but let me try to explain instead of randomly editing stuff. These characters were Dark Acolytes, force-using Darksiders trained by Darth Tyranus. The category page for Sith Acolytes specifies Force-sensitive Sith followers who were not Sith Lords. The Dark Acolytes followed Tyranus (Sith), used the Force and were not Sith Lords, meaning they will fit unless the category specifications are changed. If you wish to do that, that is fine. If you wish to count the Acolytes among the Sith, that is also fine. Rod out.
        • No, it is not fine, because not all of the Acolytes were trained in Sith ways by Dooku. Many others were not trained at all by Dooku. Of the ones who did get Sith training, some got it from other sources besides Dooku. Not all of his followers are Sith just like only a handful of Palpatine's were. If you continue to put your personal preferences ahead of canon you will not like the consequences. Kuralyov 05:40, 25 June 2006 (UTC)
          • I am not doing that, that would make me like SuperStupid. You have come to my talk page and seen my explanation. I am fine now. I said I'd stop if you did not approve my explanation and now I comply. Rod

Sentient RacesEdit

Thanks for your updates to the alien list, however, as a courtesty, please consult me before removing races; for example, you removed the Korfani without any given reason. Also, the list is for fully-sapient species ONLY. Bafforr trees, maelibi, mudmen, etc. are semi-sentient and not included any more than are Dathomiri rancors, taurill, or wampas. Korunnai ARE in fact NEAR-humans, and thus remain on the list. While externally identical to base stock, they have differences in the respiratory systems (refer to the WOTC article on Haruun Kal), and belong as much as Hapans, Chiss, etc. Some of the "races" you lists I have removed bc they are not races, but human cultures: Fondorians, Samarians, Melida/Daan, Chalacta, etc. The Chalacta were originally described as nearhumans (w/o given reasons) in Ep 1 Insiders Guide, but this ruling was reversed by the RPG, which specifically states they are a baseline human culture as an example in OPPOSITION to nearhumans.

JustinGann 12:31, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I think he's mostly right, except I think Bafforrs are fully sentient, and Mace Windu is described as Human so often that the Korunnai's biological differences must be subspecies level at most. Anyway, thanks again for cleaning things up! 8) —Silly Dan (talk) 00:51, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
    • Most near-humans are subspecies of humans, but we still inc. them on the list (ie, Hapans). As for Bafforrs, my understanding is they are like bilars, individually subsentient, only collectively reaching full sentience.JustinGann 09:21, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
      • So if we kept Bilars on the list and took Hapans off, we'd at least be consistent. 8) —Silly Dan (talk) 11:19, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
        • I suppose it would be logical to have Bilars and Bafforrs on the list due to their hive sentience, since we have Fefze beetles. However, near humans should remain, inc Hapans and Korunnai. Otherwise we delete half the alien races.
          • Daan and Melida are not aliens. They are two nations of humans living on Melida Daan, no more aliens than Thai and Swiss. Please consult the JA books.

Diathim and Maelibi likewise are nonsentient. Please consult GAOTRW and comments by Dan Wallace on TFN boards. D'vouran is a welcome addition, but by the logic of his inclusion, so should be Spore. Fondorians are humans from Fondor; please consult EGP&M. Thx for spelling corrections and fixing the links that led to homeworlds. The Lake Spirit of Mimban is not sentient. It is a carnivorous animal. Please consult STME. The mudmen are only semisentient. Please consult GATORW and EGP&M. The Pyn'gani are humans. The Samarians are humans. Please consult LOTJ 5. Sarians seem to be fanon. Shikitari are semisentient. Please consult SWDB. Thx for adding Squidge. You deleted the semisentient Tuk'ata, yet insist on including other semisentient species? Note that Silly Dan, no disrespect to him, is NOT a canon source. WOTC OWS is an official source, and it says Korunnai are near-human. Why do you acept the near-humaness of the Chalacta based on Ep1IG and SWDB but not that of the Korunnai, esp when with the Korunnai we actually know something that sets them apart from baseline humans, whereas the same is not true of the Chalacta?

JustinGann 14:19, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Sorry about this little quarrel. I was going by what the articles on each race said. You can't really blame me if I fell for an inconsistency. My explanations:

You're probably right about Melida/Daan. Maybe they should be in the human races category. According to their article Fondoriand have purple blood. That does not sound human. By that logic, Korun can stay, although there are tons of sources who call Mace human. Spore can stay too, it would seem he's got as much right to be there as Eppon. Samarians, based on their article, may or may not be human. Again going by what I read in their articles, Diathim, Maelibi, and Mudmen seem sentient. Checked the Databank, all it said was that Carl was a dimwit, not that Shikitari aren't sentient. Rodtheanimegod4ever 15:09, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

    • Well, I'll admit Fondorians are rather confusing. All sources inc. EGPM indicated they were humans until Shadow Hunter, which did sorta make them sound himan, so I guess we can leave them for now. Maybe Leland should be asked about them? Melida/Daan and Samarians ARE humans; I've read not just their CUSWE articles, but the original source books, and if CUSWE lists them as aliens, it is wrong. Diathim and Maelibi, acc to Dan Wallace (who wrote their info in GATORW) are not sentient but distrubingly act in sentient like ways. Mudmen do seem suprisingly sentient at times (driving airspeeders), but are called semisentient; I guess they rank on the higher end of the sentient scale. Spore, Eppon, and D'vouran are all gengineered one of a kinds, so they could either go here or on anon race list. I deleted Yuuzhan'tar and Zonama Sekot bc they are already on the anon race list IIRC, and they are the same race (mother and child sorta).
)

As for Carl, "The Shikitari are rare subsentient aliens" acc to SWDB. JustinGann 15:29, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I would like to thank you for creating articles for all the species that are sentient. -- Riffsyphon1024 07:07, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
    • Again, a reminder that CUSWE is NOT a primary source, and you cannot prove or disprove things with it. The Garosians in the alien list are NOT the human inhabitants of modern Garos IV, but the extinct indigenous race of the planet.JustinGann 14:04, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Joh Yowza Edit

Please check Talk:Joh Yowza: a discussion was held there which eventually decided to move the article to the stage name. If you object, speak up there first before moving it again. As for the other band members, maybe we should move them too. Thanks, —Silly Dan (talk) 18:49, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Mon Calamari Edit

We decided it goes at Mon Calamari (planet). Please don't move it back.Silly Dan (talk) 04:37, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Alien racesEdit

Please stop reverting the List of Aliens when I fix mistakes in it. Please read my explanation: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Talk:List_of_sentient_races_and_species#Let.27s_quit_messing_up_the_list_please JustinGann 18:30, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

  • Rod, I really grow tired of what you seem to regard as an "edit war." I have no desire to engage in a personal edit war over the alien list. Your interest in alien races is obvious, but I must ask you to please provide concrete proof for your claims, rather than mere persistence.

Please clarify some things for me: 1. I understand that Imperials tended to apply the term "semisentient" when it suited them to species of full sentience. But what evidence or behavior indicates Zelosian aga ARE in fact fully sentient beings? 2. What about Bilanaka and Balinaka makes you so certain they are different? 3. Why do you consider Diathim and Maelibi as sentient?

Also, please do not blindly revert things, as this results in double entries on the list for Neimoidian, Jawa, etc. While the current traditional practice is listing subspecies under main species, I don't think it is an official policy, and if you want it changed, please bring it up at the relevant discussion page. Regardless, I think we can all agree a species needs only appear once on the list. If you think it should appear twice, please suggest that on the talk page. If that is a defensible position, then it should be applied CONSISTENTLY, not just to a few species. If this is not even an issue for you, then please quit automatically reverting in a way that perpetuates this error.

I know full well CUSWE is well-documented. I have great respect for Mr. Vitas and owe much to his work. However, a secondary source remains a secondary source and prone to human error, and Mr. Vitas's work is at times influenced by his own opinions and assumptions. Anything in it is open to scrutiny and should be considered conjecture at best if it cannot be verified by the primary canon sources themselves. For example, there is no canon evidence of Mr. Vitas's assumption the Acherin are in any way different from baseline humans. You and I both obviously love aliens, and it would seem we should be allies in this matter and cooperate, discussing things rationally on the discussion boards, citing evidence in a professional manner that is required to keep this Wikia as canon as possible. Please to not continue treating this as a personal battle, for it need not be.JustinGann 05:39, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

    • Korunnai are both human and alien. That's basically what a near-human is, an alien offshoot of huanity. They can still be called human. For example, Hapan, Firrerreo, and Mirialan characters have all been called human -- and correctly so, for essentially they ARE, as are Wroonians, Chiss, and Zeltrons. Thus, the SWDB and NEGC in no way contradict WOTC by calling Mace a human, bc he is. But as a near human, he is also an alienJustinGann 22:58, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Images Edit

Hey, could you please source your images? Thanks in advance. --Imp 23:56, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Blanking articles Edit

Stop blanking articles and replacing them with redirects. Kuralyov 02:31, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

  • I wasn't. Those article's names are not canon. Rodtheanimegod4ever 02:32, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
    • I've warned you once. Do it again and you'll get a cooloff. Kuralyov 02:41, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

List of sentient races and species Edit

Please kindly take a look at the talk page of the List of sentient races and species to find out why I have reverted your edits; Near-humans are a sub-species of Humans and so should be under their entry. Kindly do not revert it again unless you can provide a canon quote which can counter those on the talk page. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 01:26, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Cropping images Edit

When cropping images and re-uploading them, please don't upload it over the original and then upload it again under a different name. The second part is really unnecessary. If it's still displaying the old image for you, right-click and click either Refresh or Reload (depending on browser) on any affected pages. -- I need a name (Complain here) 13:54, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

WP:INQEdit

  • It is explicitly stated on the Inquisitorius page that only Inquisitors may vote to keep or remove FA status. Therefore, if you vote on an Inquisitorius forum again, not only will your vote be stricken, but you will be banned. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 23:10, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
    • Geez... Sorry, I honestly didn't know...Rodtheanimegod4ever 00:14, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
      • Sorry about that, we were just a little concerned that you re-added after we removed it with an edit summary explaining that only Inquisitors were allowed to vote. Cull Tremayne 00:23, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

AgaEdit

Not to beat a dead horse, but I am still curious why you think aga should be on the sentient list.JustinGann 00:21, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

ImagesEdit

There are some unsourced images that you uploaded on this page. If you can provide a source for them that would be great. If so, please remove them from the page as well. --Eyrezer 00:59, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the quick response. There is a new image there now too. --Eyrezer 22:29, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Mezhan Kwaad/Nen Yim Edit

Come on, dude. Just because you "think" a picture is of someone else, you don't get to change it without consulting anyone. You could have checked the talk page, or asked me. I re-wrote the article from scratch and nominated it for the front page, so I'm not going to put the wrong character in the infobox…

Harrar 18:43, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Lak Sivrak behind Labria in the Special Edition? Edit

  • Hi there! Could you, please, specify where exactly behind Labria, can Lak Sivrak be seen or could you provide a picture of the scene? I watched the cantina scene five times and still no sign of Shistavanen... Perhaps, I'm just blind however, I know that Behind the Magic encyclopedia had him confused for Arleil Schous that appeared in the Special Edition behind Hem Dazon, so maybe you were mistaken, too. Thanks a lot in advance. --Darth Paulus JaingHead (May the Force serve you well!) 11:29, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Millinarians Edit

You just re-created the article on Millinarians, which has been deleted several times in the past, and neither an Adobe Acrobat text search nor a cursory visual inspection of the Smugglers of Naboo Fast-Play Game has turned them up. Can you tell me which page it's on? If not, I will probably have to re-delete it. jSarek 04:50, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Further, the edit summary "I'll betcha they were in this one" indicates that you are not working from actual sources. Please stop making articles based on secondary information or we'll have to block you for fanon. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 05:11, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
    • Read this. Read the most important part, which says "Inaccuracies may occur, though, so please double-check information from these sites." You are clearly not doing that. Ergo, fanon. Impending block if you continue. Being a smartass will not save you. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 05:26, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Re; Casus BelliEdit

I came across a Casus Belli copy once, it didn't catch my attention very much though, as I suspect that its canonical level is quite low. There is a free web adventure, which I can translate information included in the adventure for Wookieepedia, when I get some free time. Spryquasar 18:24, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

Your Sig Edit

According of the Signature Policy, "You must include your actual user name, or an image depicting it, in your signature." You may use a shortening like "Rod," RTAG4E, or somesuch, but "Flame Diety" is against the rules and you must change it. Cheers! NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 05:42, July 1, 2011 (UTC)
