Dantooine Tactical Report[]

This is the article for the Assesor's report. If you were trying to make the OOU article for the actual article itself, you can remove the Delete tag and do so. Fan26 (Talk) 19:37, May 7, 2019 (UTC)

I was trying to start something for that and rapidly ran out of time -- I'll try to find some other similar articles and correct it. -- sulfur (talk) 00:44, May 8, 2019 (UTC)
I've tried to revamp it appropriately, if you can take a look to see if it works better... Dantooine Tactical Report. -- sulfur (talk) 00:56, May 8, 2019 (UTC)
  • AFAICT that works, good job Fan26 (Talk) 00:59, May 8, 2019 (UTC)

Chadkol Gee[]

Essentially the whole thing could be expanded, it could have a personality/traits section, an equipment section, and it wouldn't hurt to expand the biography some more since he was in all four issues played a big part, hope this helps! --Lewisr (talk) 21:22, April 19, 2020 (UTC)

That does. Leaving it on the talk page would've made it easier too!
The main section does cover all of the actions and most of what we know about the character from the story too. -- sulfur (talk) 00:11, April 20, 2020 (UTC)

Redirecting articles[]

Hello. Please refrain from redirecting articles the subject matter of which you're not familiar with. "Honarius Hanast" is the proper spelling of the article you redirected and merged to "Honorius Hanast," a misspelled version I was not aware of. Whenever you're not 100% sure of the subject matter or are simply going by what's on the wiki page, please just leave a Merge template instead. Thank you. Imperators II(Talk) 06:44, September 20, 2020 (UTC)

No worries -- will do next time. -- Sulfur (talk) 11:11, September 20, 2020 (UTC)

Goma noodles[]

I was linking it back from the article, as it had been orphaned by its removal from another page, and nobody had questioned its citation to that release in over a year at that time. It'd be better to ask the creator of that page. -- Sulfur (talk) 01:29, October 20, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Broken refs[]

Yo, thanks for letting me know. I'm gonna update that workspace to the newest version tomorrow where everything is fixed. Or maybe I'll just empty it, I don't know if I even need it anymore. CanePlayz (talk) 03:45, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Broken references[]

Thank you for telling me. I'll get to work fixing those soon. Can you point out one of the broken references just so I have a better idea what to look out for when editing it and for the future?--Editoronthewiki (talk) 03:48, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

User pages[]

Please do not edit other people's user pages without their permission, even to fix template errors. If something needs to be fixed, please either message the user or inform an administrator. Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 02:30, 4 December 2020 (UTC)

Broken refs[]

Thank you but I'm totally aware of that, it's a draft page. Best, Hk 47 (talk) 21:52, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

  • Thanks for pointing it out -- it's a draft page so errors are expected since I've not worked on it for several years. I'll get around to fixing it one day I should imagine! - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar.svg(Squadron channel) 23:41, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
In both cases -- I knew it was a draft page, just wanted to make sure you were aware. I've just been doing it to work to clean up the category so that it's obvious when there are real errors present. -- Sulfur (talk) 23:43, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

Insider links[]

Hi, please stop removing the link Rogues Gallery (Star Wars Insider) from {{InsiderCite}}. Removing it puts in a redirect link, which is not preferable. Thanks. JediMasterMacaroniAdmiral Ackbar RH.png(Conversation) 19:20, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Why is this not preferable? Wouldn't it be better for that Rogues Gallery page to see where links ARE coming in via as opposed to just a generic link to the full collection? There were already a few redirects in there that were partially populated... -- Sulfur (talk) 19:23, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
If you'd like to specify which article of Rogues Gallery exactly is being cited, you can always do something like this: {{InsiderCite|130|Rogues Gallery (Star Wars Insider)#130|Rogues Gallery: The Unusual Suspects: Who's Who in Mos Eisley}}, which produces SWInsider.png "Rogues Gallery: The Unusual Suspects: Who's Who in Mos Eisley"—Star Wars Insider 130. I hope that helps. JediMasterMacaroniAdmiral Ackbar RH.png(Conversation) 19:29, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
So, you didn't answer my question. Why is this NOT preferable?
In addition, adding the anchor to the link doesn't do anything useful on "What links here". The redirect shows how the incoming article link arrives (ie, via redirect to #130, etc). Putting an anchor on the link just helps the user direct to the right part of the page, but doesn't assist maintenance. -- Sulfur (talk) 19:32, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
To answer the question, while redirects aren't the worst things in the world, status articles are kept free of them, so that should tell you something. Additionally, could you expain why you want to know where the links are coming from? Why is that useful? JediMasterMacaroniAdmiral Ackbar RH.png(Conversation) 20:13, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Redirect links can be useful when verifying that an article listed in the source actually lists the source as one. Or that it is updated to include extra information in that source. In addition, if there ends up being a reason to split an article like that for some reason, it becomes very easy to maintain the link updating. Only the redirects need to be fixed as opposed to potentially 500+ incoming links. -- Sulfur (talk) 20:15, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Hey, I know this is a very old conversation, but WP:MOS#General rules tells us not to use redirecting links. JediMasterMacaroniAdmiral Ackbar RH.png(Talk) 16:48, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

User pages[]

Please do not edit other people's user pages without their permission, even to fix template errors. If something needs to be fixed, please either message the user or inform an administrator. Thank you. CIS roundel.svg Erebus Chronus (talk) 15:05, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Best to let an admin know and let them handle it. CIS roundel.svg Erebus Chronus (talk) 16:40, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Warning: Removing information[]

Please do not remove content from Wookieepedia. It is considered vandalism. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 23:57, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

No information was removed. It was changed to still be accurate ("A. Pronovost" is short for their deadname) and to respect their wishes that have been expressed several times, both via their website and twitter. -- Sulfur (talk) 00:27, 24 March 2021 (UTC)
  • You removed the name "Amy," which inaccurately reflects the source material that our articles are citing, which would also be a violation of our Attribution policy. Let me make this very clear for you: By Wookieepedia policy, no information may be removed from articles or otherwise misrepresented unless approved by the Wookieepedia community or mandated by universal Fandom policy that overrides and contradicts our own local policies. Until one of those things happens, you may not take it upon yourself to institute any changes that violate our policies. It's very clear from your comments on the related CT and your actions here that you have a personally motivated agenda to push with this, so I will be direct: I will block you from editing if you persist in violating our policies. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 00:40, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

In use[]

Hello, Sulfur. Thank you for fixing those broken links, however, I was currently editing the article and lost three hours of work. I fixed those links as part of my work that is now lost. I know you had good intentions, but please please please respect the "In Use" template. You even acknowledged that you knew the article was "In Use." I would really appreciate it for next time, thank you. --Vitus InfinitusTalk 22:36, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

  • You're still doing this. It's really not the end of the world for there to be a broken reference for a day or two. JediMasterMacaroniAdmiral Ackbar RH.png(Talk) 19:42, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
    • Yeah, for some reason, the page loaded partway down and I didn't spot it until it was saved. -- Sulfur (talk) 00:00, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Heyo Sulfur! You may or may not have done it again with Unnamed :P . I was luckily not editing it at the time, but just keep it in mind to check the maintenance tags before editing please. Thanks! Braha'tok enthusiast (Hello there) 08:53, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
    • Yup. That's the one Macaroni was pointing out above. -- Sulfur (talk) 13:18, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

Clone Trooper doll[]

Hi Sulfur! I see you've reverted my edit where I moved "Clone trooper doll" to "Clone Trooper doll." I moved the page per the subject's Databank entry, I wonder if there's a policy or something like that that I miss out while moving the page, I would be glad if you could inform me. Thanks! Efe Önem (talk) 20:57, 21 June 2021 (UTC)

I didn't see the DB link in there -- perhaps that should be the correct place. In any case, if you do move something like that, it's best to update the incoming links as well so that the new article isn't orphaned. -- Sulfur (talk) 16:15, 21 June 2021 (UTC)
Okay then, have a great day! Sorry for forgetting to add my signature by the way. Efe Önem (talk) 20:57, 21 June 2021 (UTC)

Accurate reference[]

Regarding this edit, if you're not convinced that something was accurate then why did you not just replace the reference with a fact template? Lewisr (talk) 15:31, 10 July 2021 (UTC)

Because I couldn't figure out what the correct template was to put there. Thanks for reminding me of the name of it. -- Sulfur (talk) 10:36, 12 July 2021 (UTC)
