Battles[]

Please do not bold battles when they are mentioned in articles. Kuralyov 04:07, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Dark Jedi[]

A Dark Jedi is one who has fallen to the darkside but not joined the Sith, which Revan and Malak did. Thus they are not Dark Jedi, they're Sith. Jasca Ducato 21:05, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

  • You do know that the two groups are not mutually exclusive, right? Revan and Malak were both Dark Jedi and Sith. It gets repetitive to exclusively call them one or the other, so I mixed it up. I left that comment on your talk page because I have noticed that you have a certain pattern of removing disputed information from articles without attempting to reach consensus first... --Sentry 21:13, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Comment on Dark Jedi Discussion[]

Timeline format[]

  • Great suggestions for a timeline format! I left some comments and suggestions, if you'd like to check them out. Jaywin 15:06, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

The Rakata[]

  • Thanks for your response. However, I left the same message on the Pre-Republic page, and someone left a different, yet equally interesting, response. You might want to check it out. Jaywin 03:04, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

Screenshots[]

Hy, would you be so kind as to tell me how you managed to take screenshots of the computer as you have done here. I could really use knowledge like this.

Also, do you know how to check the history of whats been on a screen just incase i need to search up so info. Many thanks, Jasca Ducato 17:09, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Thanks for that. But one the second point, when i asked about checking a screens history i meant something like this; My friend managed to bring up a screenshot of a conversation i had had on MSN several hours before hand which had the websites i was looking at at the time in the background. I didn't save the conversation history so i dont know how he did it. Jasca Ducato 18:58, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Template box[]

Is a template for use ONLY on your user page really necessary? --SparqMan 03:45, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Campaign box[]

I started a discussion here, if you'd like to have a look. --Eyrezer 02:12, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Awesome. I noticed you'd created that capacity but hadn't realised I was able to change colours on individual pages rather than the whole template. I've changed the box on the Empire Reborn page, but it makes me think about doing it for the individual pages as well. I could create a unified look for them, especaily if the box was at the top. Equally it might just be more distracting. I know you don't particularly like infoboxes but any thoughts? --Eyrezer 10:17, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
    • lol. If you look at your revert on the campaign infobox page, you'll see I'd already reverted it. Yours only affected a link! --Eyrezer 10:23, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
      • Is it possible to have a four way battle template? The Battle of Zeltros needs one. I done it in a 3 way at the mo, but the Hiromi are not included. --Eyrezer 11:14, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
        • Thanks. I thought I'd give it a go. Living in NZ the timezone I'm in is a bit different from most of the Woopieepedians I think. Can be quite interesting at times... --Eyrezer 05:50, 17 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Hi Sentry. Could you have a look at this template for a three way war I made for an upcoming article on the Nagai-Tof invasion. Are you able to make the Beginning/End line split equally into two halves? --Eyrezer 04:27, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Good idea. I forgot about doing that. Have done so now. --Eyrezer 23:29, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

RE: Userboxes[]

Thanks for the help Sentry, I'm kinda noob at these userbox things but I like them alot so dont mind my bumbling through the code and putting myself in the wrong categories -- The Ravager 18:20, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Good job alphabetizing the templates. -- Riffsyphon1024 08:05, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Timezone template[]

Hi: I stole the image you put on your timezone userbox and put it at File:Clock2uk.png. I'd like to use it on Template:User timezone, though I'm going to have to figure out how to get that userbox to be easily customizable so users can put their own timezones in. —Silly Dan (talk) 03:18, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Hey Sentry. I've created a starting point for a manual approach to our problem at Category:Wookieepedians by time zone. Is this good? -- Riffsyphon1024 07:37, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
    • I believe you've gotten the template to work now. SkywalkerPL added the template and the category was filled in. As long as the category is there, it works. Congrats. -- Riffsyphon1024 08:35, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Re: Userboxes[]

That's no problem. Thanks for the help (I thought that something wasn't right...)! -Lord vader1414 19:25, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Award[]

[[:File:Pit-droid-award.png|thumb|I, Riffsyphon1024, hereby award Sentry with The Pit Droid Award of Diligence for his diligent work on templates. -- Riffsyphon1024 06:50, 11 July 2006 (UTC)]] You've been such a big help lately in creating all these categories and getting the timezone project working, among categorization of all the other templates, so I award you this Pit Droid Award. -- Riffsyphon1024 06:50, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Thanx Riffsyphon1024, that made my day! (er... night) ;) –Sentry [Talk] 06:56, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Regen[]

You know, I've seen "regen" posted in the summary for edits of templates a whole bunch of times, and I still don't understand it. Since you've been doing it recently, I'm singling you out to ask for an explanation. ;-) Thanks. - Lord Hydronium 08:02, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Template[]

Thanks for the help with the template, Sentry. I like the tweaks. Atarumaster88 14:33, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

  • ReplySentryTalk 07:03, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
    • Consider it forgiven. No problems- it all worked out- but I appreciate the concern and protocol. Good idea and good reminder for all of us. Atarumaster88 13:14, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
      • Sentry, do you have any ideas on how to trim the box on that template so it's not so filled with empty space on that right side? {Contact me with ideas before changing majorly please! LOL) Atarumaster88 19:02, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
        • Okay, that's fine. It's not that big of a deal. I do have a better understanding of the process though. Thanks. Atarumaster88 05:21, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Okay- more ideas on <my> template. (Template: Argument) Since it is designed to stop ceaseless bickering and personal attacks, is it possible to direct the page where it is placed to someplace where an admin will notice it? Is that a good idea? Let me know on my talk page. BTW, I think the categories needs some work. Atarumaster88 02:52, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
    • Well, I have created Category:Civility disputes, but will that show up on every page that the template is placed? Would an administrator pay any attention to that? Atarumaster88 16:52, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

The One[]

I see you deleted the reference to the One as a leader of the Rakata Civil War, saying that he lived in the JEdi Civil War. Actually I had a parenthesis that said he was a pre-Republic One, not the character appearing in KOTOR. The One is a title, not the personal name of an individual, or so I think. What do you say? MoffRebus 10:58, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Templates[]

Hey Sentry i'm trying to get my templates so they are on the right hand side but they keep on staying in the centre and the middle. Can you fix it or can you tell me what i'm doing wrong. Jedi jordy 64 18:27, 8 August 2006 (AEST)

I cannot thank you enough for being so diligent. :) -- Riffsyphon1024 08:32, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

  • It gives me something to do while watching TV late at night ;) –SentryTalk 08:40, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[]

Thanks for noticing this punk: User:Jabba the Hut. The only edits he has made is copying two userboxes from my userpage and blanking my talkpage and userpage. What would you recommend for dealing with this? Please post on my talkpage. Huntersquid 19:55, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Unblock[]

  • Sentry, would you please unblock Wat Tambor if you are still online? There is a spelling/grammar error I want to fix. Atarumaster88 03:26, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
    • He's not an admin, but I'll unlock it for a second. —Silly Dan (talk) 03:33, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
      • Nope, not an admin. I'm just a lowly grunt and that is the way I like it :) –SentryTalk 03:55, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
        • Oops. Sorry. Well, the article was fixed anyway. For some reason, I thought you were an admin. Atarumaster88 21:38, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
          • Don't worry about it. It happens. I think that the bold font in my sig might be confusing people…–SentryTalk 21:47, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Help[]

Hi, I'm sort of new to this type of thing and you're good with templates. Can you help with this template? It's template for articles or images without a source. Here's the template:

Template:user wookiee[]

    • Thank you! :-) - Yoshi626 22:46, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Userbox Annoyances[]

Hey Sentry. I might need you to look at a section in my userpage where my userboxes are. What I have now is a mess and I'm puzzled as to why <br="clear all"> doesn't work. I'm currently converting over from a right margin series of infoboxes to a centered cluster of three per row to save space on the side in other sections and to generally improve the page's appearance. I believe you have the ability to edit the page though protected from non-admins. -- Riffsyphon1024 08:05, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Okay, I'm on it…–SentryTalk 08:41, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
    • K, I arranged your userboxes in three rows. How does it look? Is that what you were going for?–SentryTalk 09:17, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
      • Yes, although with my screen resolution I have a tad bit of overhang on the third column, though that is due to our adspace versus Wikipedia's full use of the margin. Perhaps it looks better on a larger res. -- Riffsyphon1024 10:05, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
        • Yeah, those ads are pain. Unfortunately, due to the width of the userboxes, there isn't anything I can do to make it look better :-( –SentryTalk 21:10, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

VFD changes[]

Hey. I put Wookiee Villager up for VFD earlier, clicked the "create a VFD discussion page" link and created the page but the incomplete message stayed on the article instead of the normal VFD message. Green Tentacle (Talk) 15:47, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Yeah, it is either a browser or server cache issue. It will sort itself out within 24 hours.
    Sorry I didn't reply earlier… I haven't had power, phone, or cable access for 4 days. We had a really nasty wind storm in the pacific northwest ([1]).–SentryTalk 06:53, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Sentry, what's going on? -- Riffsyphon1024 03:48, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi Sentry, I just want to thank you for fixing my profile and for your support about the Wookieepedians by article philosophy.--Zeist Antilles 22:45, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Hey man, I'm really sorry to see you go. You'll certainly be missed. It seems I almost always found myself voting on things the same side as you. Your work here will always be greatly appreciated. Best wishes in whatever you do. Peace. -- Ozzel 06:21, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Nooooo! You'll be missed dude. (Ulicus 23:23, 8 February 2007 (UTC))

  • Thanks for your efforts here Sentry. Best of luck to you. :) -Fnlayson 03:53, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Let me echo that also. You were a great help to me when I first started here, and your insane talents with wikicode and personality will be missed. Atarumaster88 20px (Audience Chamber) 04:36, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Hey, I just found out now that you've left. I tend to agree with you on some of your arguments against the wiki-format (having originally left Wikipedia for the same reasons). Anyway, thanks for your efforts here. They're greatly appreciated. Good luck. KEJ 21:15, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
  • I'll miss you. I never really knew you, but your signature's prominence on discussion pages inspired me to be more involved. -Milo Fett[Comlink] 00:39, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
      • Hello sentry, I am really pleased you are back. It to saddened me to hear the news that you had left. I totally understand the motivational feelings you had. I to am sorry to say that those types of feelings are a day to day occurrence with me to, not necessarily with Wookiee but most other things. Anyway good to see you are back :-) Joker1138(Mandalore) 25px
  • "...every minor discussion is in danger of being hijacked by clever and/or ambitious users who know that they may be able to sway the absurdly flawed postmodern process known as 'consensus' in their favor if they shout loud enough. As such, many disagreements degenerate into a ridiculous street theater in which all concerned parties expend their energy in an effort to sway voters to their way of thinking through sheer force of personality. After a while, the system becomes incredibly tiresome."

...Sounds suspiciously like the modern political process in the USA! :) Gonk 18:25, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Understanding your reasons for leaving now makes sense. Good luck in the real world Sentry and perhaps your determination and passion can go into more productive means. :) -- Riffsyphon1024 05:04, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Atarumaster[]

  • I appreciate the solidarity, but I didn't really interpret his post as a threat, just vehement opposition to my point of view, which is at least understandable. While you and I seem to be on the same page with this whole Inquisitorius thing, I have to admit that I doubt he'd have to do much vote farming to defeat anything I might propose. My stance at this point is that if users here want this so badly, they deserve it. Hopefully they'll come to their senses eventually, but I have no desire to be a martyr to principle over the matter. CooperTFN 07:10, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
    • Please see my comments on Cooper's page. As Han Solo says, "Sorry about the mess." Atarumaster88 20px (Audience Chamber) 02:14, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
      • No apology necessary. I appreciate your intentions. CooperTFN 18:51, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
        • No hard feelings at all, Sentry. I understand about the RL pressure and all that, and I know that I personally have also been a candidate for the "open mouth insert foot" award at times. I'm still sorry to see you go. Cheers. Atarumaster88 22:25, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Redlink fix[]

  • Hey, what should I shift the Category:VFD over to for the new Trash Compactor setup? I have a redlink I'd like to fix. Thanks. Atarumaster88 20:09, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
    • Hmmm... nothing seems to be linking to Special:Whatlinkshere/Category:VFD, but if I were you, I would change it to Category:TC or something like that.–SentryTalk 20:17, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
      • The actual link was Category:Votes for deletion, but I think that Trash Compactor is what I'm looking for. Thanks. Atarumaster88 20:29, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

De-sysop[]

Hello Sentry, as you requested on IRC I've removed the sysop flag from your account. I've also read your notes about the reasons that led to this decision now – kind of sad, but understandable and very differentiated on the other hand. Anyway, many thanks for all the good things you've done here! I really wish you all the best, and more pleasure again when you drop in now and then :-) --rieke 22:18, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

  • I'm going to go ahead and unprotect your page also, if that's okay with you. It'll be easier for you to edit it that way, should you choose to do so. Cheers, and best wishes. Atarumaster88 04:19, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Welcome back[]

Hey Sentry, I just wanted to say welcome back. Have a good one, Cheers. Greyman(Paratus) 00:34, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Hey, thanks =) –SentryTalk 01:40, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

      • Count me among them too, even if your return is only temporary. Your presence is always welcome. :-) jSarek 07:52, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
        • Thanks for the warm welcome, Chack and JSarek :) –Sentry 09:55, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Revan's amnesia[]

Hey, Sentry. I wanted to run something by you and see what you think. You know when the K.O.T.O.R. game says that Revan's mind was destroyed? That probably was his mind as in his "identity", not his memories. Obviously, his memories weren't destroyed, but as far as his identity, the Jedi Council couldn't repair Revan's identity. What do you think? Visit my talk page and let me know, please. Also, is the Circlet of Saresh included in the downloadable content in the K.O.T.O.R. version of X-boX? Because I really don't want to use my P.C. for the game, {I cannot get used to the controls!} so I just wanted to know. Thanks!--Jedi Kasra 10:08, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Reply.–SentryTalk 01:09, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
    • O.K. Thanks, Sentry. If I'm doing any fanwanking please let me know.--Jedi Kasra 04:19, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Infoboxes[]

Ok, I'll stop putting these informations into the infoboxes. But I wouldn't call them "detailed description". It's just an information about WHO killed this character. And people will read the article to learn HOW the character was killed.Unsigned comment by 77.236.0.195 (talk • contribs).

'Butchering' Mandalorian wars[]

Sorry for that. However I gave an explanation why i butchered your hard work. However hard work has nothing to do with relevancy in Wookieepedia (those adding fanon have also done hard work adding fanon before we revert). After all you can always move your work to more relevant articles, which I did before removing those sentences. I still consider that the sentences I removed did not harm your section. The explanation was and is that the 'context' is too long to exist as it is in the main article and the previous Mandalore and the war of Dxun are not relative at all; or else we should put a perilepsis of the Clone Wars in the Galactic Civil War article... Sorry again. MoffRebus 12:47, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Article Request[]

Hey, Sentry. I was wondering, do you know how to create an article? If so, could you create one on the visions in Ludo Kressh's tomb to the Jedi Exile? I feel that there is enough stuff about it to make one. Tell me what you think.--Jedi Kasra 09:20, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Sorry, this is something of a necropost, but I might as well respond now. If I were you, I would just add the relevant info to the Jedi Exile and Ludo Kressh's tomb articles.–SentryTalk 01:00, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Links within References[]

Hey Sentry, upon seeing your recent edit to the Mandalorian Wars article, I thought you might be interested in seeing this → Forum:Links within references. Cheers, Greyman(Paratus) 00:22, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Oops, looks like I am a tad behind when it comes to policy. Whatever, since the CT is not closed yet, I won't bother to revert myself yet. Thanks for the heads-up! =) –SentryTalk 00:30, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Actually, I was hoping you would vote! :P lol, I am actually of the same mind as you since I view that linking the ref's is redundant at best. Greyman(Paratus) 00:35, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
    • I would gladly support you on this issue, but I am afraid that I just can't go there. When I resigned as an admin, I promised myself that I would never get involved in policy making on Wookieepedia ever again. Sorry, I am strictly a (minor) contributor these days and am much happier in that role. Cheers, SentryTalk 00:53, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
      • Heh, no worries :) I completely understand. Anyways, it's nice to have you back and working on articles like the Mando Wars. Have a good one, Greyman(Paratus) 00:55, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

{{1st}}[]

Why Not there is no official policy on adding (First appearance) templates and i was told on the IRC by Gonk, the4dotopilis and others that you do put it on the whole thing is confusing Dark Lord Xander (Embrace The Dark Side!)20px 03:10, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

  • thanks for explaining things but i had already decided with Eyrezer not to continue to add or remove them and therefore stay out of the line of fire of people who beleive that they should be on there and those who think they shouldn't be there. once again thaks for taking the time to explain things to me i understand know Dark Lord Xander (Embrace The Dark Side!)20px 07:16, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Revan as an Author[]

Hey, Sentry. Do you it would be a good idea if you or I could add the fact that Revan was an author to his "Abilities" in his article? For more on this, go to Talk:Revan/Legends and look under "Revan as an Author".--Jedi Kasra 02:40, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Revan Fact Check[]

Would this do as a revision/prune of the section you've highlighted?

Soon thereafter, he stumbled upon the Trayus Academy, an abandoned training center built by a mysterious Sith faction known as the "True Sith". While unearthing the planet's buried secrets, Revan learned the exact location and immense significance of the planet Korriban, the homeworld of the Sith species. (PRUNING BEGINS HERE) Though further details of what transpired in that ancient Sith bastion remain unknown, Kreia would later imply that it was there that Revan discovered the continued existence of the so-called “True Sith” and, “to prevent a greater evil”, would embrace the Sith teachings himself.

(Canderous Quote)

Returning to the wars (PRUNING ENDS HERE) Revan forced...

I've basically just taken a big pair of scissors to it. Removing the Star Forge stuff doesn't really hurt, since it's mentioned as something Revan's looking for further down in the section. (Ulicus 16:40, 11 November 2007 (UTC))

Questions[]

Hey just wondering what actual edits you made in the last few minutes. Just curious. =D Linkstarwars 06:19, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
