HiEdit

Hi Rudy I heard you are going to edit comic related articles and I wanted to let you know that if you need an image far a marvel or another comic, just ask me! --Themelle444

  • Hey thanks! I've been making my way through the early Marvel Star Wars which have been pretty good for images so far. But one article that I noticed didn't have an images was for the Cloud-Riders, if you've got one for them that would be great. --Rudy 23:19, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Done----Themelle444
    • Thanks Themelle, much appreciated. --Rudy 18:57, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Great Retro WorkEdit

[[File:DSaward.png|thumb|right|I, QuentinGeorge present you with the Retro Star Award in recognition of Marvel Star Wars related articles. QuentinGeorge 05:24, 12 March 2006 (UTC)]]

  • In recognition of your work on Marvel Star Wars related articles, I am giving you this award. QuentinGeorge 05:23, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Hey thanks, that's pretty cool! --Rudy 06:31, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Tough Crowd Edit

Oh, no, I didn't think that at all. It's just that I sometimes charge into things not really reading all of them and assuming I'm the only one who knows what's best, and I don't want to do that--Erl 13:27, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Ok cool. I thought that might be the case, but I wanted to clear up any potential misunderstanding just in case. --Rudy 22:32, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Hello Edit

Guess who? ;) TIEPilot051999 03:24, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Hey Alex, fancy meeting you here. --Rudy 05:37, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
  • I couldn't resist dropping a line once I found out you were here. And look. An award. You've been here how long? *silently mutters something about not getting an award his first month here* :-P TIEPilot051999 05:48, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
    • I think it probably has more to do with the fact that there aren't too many old guys like me who have the original Marvel Star Wars series. But it's still nice to be recognized. --Rudy 08:06, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Rudy/test Edit

Hey, could you let me know (on my talk page please) what this page is about/for, and, if sensible, move it to a subpage like User:Rudy/Star Wars bibliography? Thanks!--The Erl of User talk talk What I do 16:18, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

  • No prob Rudy. Lots of people have trouble with the subpage thing at first. Is it possible to delete the original, or is it still in use as an active redirect?--The Erl of the Rudy talk What I do 03:51, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
    • Ya it should be deleted, I guess the redirect was created when I moved it. I'm not really sure what the procedure is to get something deleted, but if you want to take care of it go ahead. --Rudy 04:03, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
      • I put the redirect up on the CSD page for you. RMF 05:01, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
        • Thanks for that, I'll know better next time. ;) --Rudy 04:24, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

Character articlesEdit

Hi, you seemed like a good person to ask, but I was wondering, for introductory paragraphs for character articles, it should pretty much pretty fact-based as a character and what role he/she played as opposed to listing character/personality traits since it could be identified as a sort of branch off of analysis/interpretation—>POV, right? Maybe I'm just paranoid (so I'm asking for a second opinion), but do you think some parts of the introductory paragraphs for Ben Skywalker's article could use some revision concerning that area?

Also, I've seen different variations of how the introduction paragraphs are written — is it supposed to be spoiler free, or more of a summary? —Mirlen 23:15, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

  • I don't know that I'm any authority, but I would tend to agree that the introductory paragraph(s) should give a factual overview of the character to give some context regarding where and when the character fits into the Star Wars universe, sorta like an executive summary. The reader should be able to get the essential information of the subject from the introduction without having to read the whole thing. The Ben Skywalker article introduction has a good deal of POV material, especially the second paragraph; though I've seen some articles have that kind of thing in a "Personality" section following the biography. --Rudy 04:40, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
    • So I'm not the only one who thinks so. Frankly, I'm all for the NPOV/"Let the facts speak for themselves" policy, and do away with the personality section. It's an factual encyclopedia, wiki or not — not a fansite or analysis. Well, if I get any good inspiration on writing it, would you mind critiquing it? If not, no trouble then. —Mirlen 23:26, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
      • I'd be happy to look it over if you'd like, just let me know. I understand where you're coming from regarding POV in articles, but I don't agree 100%, I think there is room for POV stuff as long as it's properly sourced. On the other hand, the first time I saw an article with a "Personality" section I was a little put off; it does cross the line from reporting to analysis. Although I've waffled on this issue so often it's hard to remember exactly what my opinion is anymore. ;) --Rudy 05:49, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
        • Thanks. :) Well, each to his own — everyone has a different opinion. I don't mind theories about say, a character's parentage, on a wiki as long as it's backed up by reliable sources, but a personality section is different, because a character's actions can be interpretated in different ways and so in terms of encyclopedic writing, it's not very reliable and treads rather dangerously into the POV area. There's the basic, notable traits of a character, but there are other traits as well that may not exactly be as obvious or much of a fact. But like you said, if there is to be POV in an article, it should be sourced, as to give evidence that it was somewhat implied in a book or whatever. But if it's completely a fan/scholar's own analysis...*shakes head* Eh, you know what, I'm not sure if I'm making any sense anymore. :P Anyway, I'll let you know when I feel like I can make a good introduction. —Mirlen 21:45, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Hey, it's me. I finished NPOV-izing the introductory paragraphs in Ben Skywalker's article, though by the time you get this, it'll most likely be edited by somebody else. Edit as you see fit. There wasn't a whole lot of information to add about him to summarize his life with major events, since he hasn't the experiences of his cousins, his father, his aunt/uncle, his grandfather, etc. Thanks for looking over it. :)Mirlen 21:03, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Hey Edit

Send me a message when you get on again. We need to talk. --SoulReaper079(Requiem) 23:56, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
