E-mail references reloaded[]

No problem, my friend. Everyone is allowed to go out at times, the Wook doesn't make our whole life—luckily enough, if I may say. I'll probably ask you to protect another similar page in a day or two, because Ben Grossblatt is about to give me the Code of the Sith in Sith language, along with the underlying grammar (it seems that the higher-ups at Lucas gave him the right to discuss this thing a little more)! --LelalMekha (talk) 21:43, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

R2-B1 Image[]

Hey Trak! Sorry 'bout the misunderstanding with the image - the sourcing info was not falsified, it was accurate; I just forgot that wikis aren't a good source. I've since replaced the image with a better one from a real source, and I'd like it if you could look it over and see if it's okay. I do put a lot of effort in at Wookieepedia and it's good to see that the wiki is in such capable and assured hands as yours. OtterSurf (talk) 17:05, July 18, 2012 (UTC)


Hello, there! I made a mistake a few days ago... I wanted to see how the editing of an Wookieepedia article works and I didn't know that once you press the "Save Page" button it would be made public in an instant.

This was the article I'm talking about: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Meetra_Surik

And this is the modified article that remained in the revision history: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Meetra_Surik?oldid=4109423

Like I said, I didn't know what will happen and I only just replaced Meetra Surik's name from under the Photo with one of my KOTOR:TSL character's name:D

I feel a little uncomfortable for exposing one of my chars in the Revision History, so I was wondering, if you can just erase it from the History, as long as it is only a minor "aberration"... Thank You, in advance!--Skyrunner27 (talk) 22:18, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

Eric Moro emails[]

Hey. Could you please send your emails to him as a "reply all" so I get a copy too, like I'm doing with my replies? It would help me keep track of everything that being said. Thanks. :) —MJ— Training Room Thursday, August 2, 2012, 02:42 UTC

CVI shifts[]

I notice you've scheduled yourself to work from opening straight until mid-afternoon on Sunday. Make sure you allow yourself time to eat lunch. Simple snacks (e.g. trail mix), water, and soft drinks will be permitted at the table, but full meals and basically anything that could potentially require napkins will not be allowed at the table. This is to ensure you are not caught in the middle of eating when people walk up as well as preventing damage to my computer or the brochures by greasy or messy fingers. Also, you will need occasional bathroom breaks, and you cannot leave the table unattended to do so. I would recommend scheduling no more than two consecutive hours without a one-hour break for these reasons, so you may want to remove your name from a few of those shifts. —MJ— Council Chambers Friday, August 10, 2012, 04:05 UTC

Dark Side Regeneration[]

Why did you delete Dark Side Regeneration. Its an unique legitimate ability that hass no prescence on this wiki, and it is NOT Midi-chlorian manipulation. 05:15, August 15, 2012 (UTC)

  • Hi there. I'm the one who judged that the article should have been deleted. I am one of our resident KOTOR experts here. The problem with having an article on Sion's ability to regenerate is that it is completely undefined. It has never been identified as a specific, even a unique Force power. There's nothing saying that it can't be midi-chlorian manipulation. Having an article on his very vague ability would serve no purpose. It would basically say—and your draft did read this way—"Darth Sion was virtually immortal because he used the Force to sustain himself." That doesn't designate a specific Force power and is a sentence that can safely rest in his article. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo.png 05:31, August 15, 2012 (UTC)

36 instead of 35[]

Could you do me a favor. I was in Barnes and Nobles today and saw a book that said Star Wars Origami: 36 Amazing Figures from a Galaxy Far, Far Away, but the aricle on this wiki lists the title as 35. I don't know how to edit a title, but you can. Im meticulous, so I need to fix it. Thanks69.114.36.196 06:07, August 15, 2012 (UTC)


I just found out that we can ONLY use the convention center's internet services. We cannot use a cellular dongle. Therefore, could you add the following to the sitenotice and community corner, replacing the existing CVI line (since I don't think we're going to get more volunteers at this point):

Wookieepedia will be at Celebration VI in Orlando, Florida, August 23–26 in booth 351, but needs your help with Internet service, which will cost us US$300. If you can spare a little money and have a PayPal account, please help us by donating some money. All donations are greatly appreciated and should be sent through PayPal to jcgoble3@gmail.com. So far we have collected User:Master Jonathan/Celebration VI/Donations.js.

The template will allow me to update it without having to bug an admin every time. The MediaWiki 1.19 message could also be removed if you want to (since it's well over a month old) to give more prominence to this. Thanks. —MJ— War Room Wednesday, August 15, 2012, 19:44 UTC

CVI shift sign-ups[]

Hey. Four empty shifts are left: 1:15–1:45 and 1:45–2:15 on Thursday, plus 11:15–11:45 and 2:15–2:45 on Friday. All of these shift conflict with both my and C-3P0's panels. If you could cover a couple or even all of these, it would be appreciated; otherwise I have to force someone to work them since we are not allowed to leave the booth empty. Thanks. —MJ— Council Chambers Sunday, August 19, 2012, 22:17 UTC

Image help[]

please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, pleeeeeeeeeease help me! I'm asking you because your a "admin" and you probably know a lot about this site. What i need help with is i keep trying to upload a couple of pics and the stupid thing won't let me, i'm used to uploading on other wiki's becasue it just asks what file you want to upload and "poof" it's done, but with wookiee it's a big pain in the batt. If you could tell me how to get passed the "description" part and how to check "copyright" descriptions on images that would RULE. Also can you tell me, do you have to upload the pic from "bing" or can you search it up on google and upload it from the site? It would really rule if you could help and get back to me soon. latter Unsigned comment by Oldrepublicandclonewarsfan77 (talk • contribs).

ummm how do i put the sig? do i just hit the sig button? Unsigned comment by Oldrepublicandclonewarsfan77 (talk • contribs).

Thanks dude your a HUGE help :) but 1 more thing, can you send me a link or something of a jedi Guardian? almost like this one here -->


with the source? If you could do that that would RULE 1000 MILLION % --Edak Trebmil (talk) 03:56, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

so can i still upload it? here's the link you first get when you click on it on google images -->

Star Wars Head to Head[]

Hello dear. Im just wondering. I edited the Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Head to Head book page and Im very curious as to were i can get it. I can't find a google books review or a pdf online. What should I do. How can I get it?Opress100 (talk) 06:29, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

one more thing, i did every thing you told me to do and i thiiiiink it should of worked but when i pressed "upload file" it said something about me not being able to upload because this site wants to reduce spam or something, witch makes no sense because i haven't spammed once on this wiki. Does that have something to do with me not "having enough EP?" For example, in some games you have to reach, lets say level 5 or something, to be able to go to "chat", is it kind of like that for this wiki? because last time i checked you don't have to "level up" on wiki's xD and i find it weird that i still can't upload. Also i know you can't upload images from a URL but what i meant was if you SAVE the image from the URL on your computer, can you still upload it even thought it was from "google" and do i also have to put the web address down in the "source" box? Also how do i find the right copy right option for the image? If you click on the image with google images it doesn't show the copyright thing for the image. All it says is "may be subject to copyright" and it's reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally annoying. Anyway plz answer --Edak Trebmil (talk) 07:49, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Head to head response[]

Yeah IRC did'nt work so good. Anyway listen my e-mail is Darthbrains@gmail.com. E-mail me their and maybe you could give me a clue on that "technicality" you were talking about. Please, I want the character special moves. ThanksOpress100 (talk) 22:44, September 10, 2012 (UTC)


I'm sorry for trying to expand the wiki. What is the point if we cannont add pages. Why did they have to be deleted. Just because they didn't have a name? Creating the page now saves having to search through endless unattributed images later when the character is finally named. Should not all characters that appeared in the films have a page? I suppose we should go an delele all the the other unidentified character pages (such as the unidentifed woklings - pages I did not create mind you) then also should I until there are no pages left on this wiki? Having a page with visual images and what little info we have on such characters plus the time they appeared in the movies would allow others to gather more info on these characters than if these pages did not exist at all. Jartka'irn (talk) 10:47, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for taking the time to explain your point of view. If I choose to recreate those articles (once Gethralkin decides to refrain from randomly slapping delete tags around without justification) I will attempt to flesh them out to a higher standard. Jartka'irn (talk) 03:58, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

A certain user[]

I keep seeing where I am being accused of trying to get rid of "Unidentified character" articles because they don't have names, which is furthest from the truth. I have even pointed out that it was not the issue, and that the lack of sufficient context was the real issue. I have not been randomly slapping tags on this user's articles, either. I have reviewed several of them and some did and some did not merit revising or given minor tweaks. Some needed reverting in the case of speculation that was added, while some had too little to justify making them into articles. I have always stated the reasons in the edit summary to guide a better choice in future editing, and I have also given positive remarks concerning good information provided. However, I do take umbrage to motions for removal of well established articles made without research and in retaliation to perceived slights, sock-puppetry to add anonymous agreement to a position that is being challenged and a call for the ban of a challenger of attribution/context/etc., and edit-warring (for instance here and here) against members trying to help explain how a certain edit or entry does not fit the policy guidelines. This person is also interested in hiding any counsel made by other users, as well, continuously archiving his Talk Page so that warnings that he receives are not immediately visible. —GethralkinHyperwave 07:09, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks. I appreciate you and the other admin's help. I am also removing from follow certain articles that caught my interest in the first place and led me to this situation. —GethralkinHyperwave 08:05, September 13, 2012 (UTC)


Someone vandalized Darth Talon's page, the quote under Hunt for a Princess and the very bottom of Anakin Skywalker's Force abilities as a Jedi Knigt, the part about his ability to shoot Force lightning. Someone dumbed it down. It needs to be reverted. 04:35, September 17, 2012 (UTC)

Star Wars: Cross Sections and Blueprints[]

Hey Trak Nar, I recently made a page called Star Wars: Cross-Sections and Blueprints and I cant add a link for it. Could you. Its Amazon.ca slash Star Wars Cross Sections and Blueprints, all capital after each word is a dash, then another slash, lowercase dp then another slash with the number 0756699849. Thanks! 03:40, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

  • No clue. I hate it when that happens lol. However, its still Star wars related. 04:23, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Deca-bladed lightsaber[]

Hey Trak, I recently made a page for a Deca-bladed lightsaber from Lego Empire Strikes out, but lol, it should be Octo-bladed lightsaber because its 8 blades not ten. Could you change the title to Octo-bladed thanks74.72.159.47 01:04, September 27, 2012 (UTC)


Yeah, you're right. I should have took a step back and took and breath instead of responding to the PAs. Thanks for your kind but firm counsel. —GethralkinHyperwave 13:28, September 27, 2012 (UTC)


Just a matter of taste, but have you considered using this:

{| width="100%" style="background: transparent; " | valign="top" width="50%" style="padding: 5px; background: #FAFAD2; border: 1px solid #AAAAAA; -moz-border-radius: 6px; margin-bottom: 4px;"| [[File:LinkFA-star.png|right]] ==[[ARTICLE NAME]]== [[IMAGE]] {{QUOTE}} INTRODUCTION {{Rm|ARTICLE NAME}} | valign="top" width="50%" style="padding: 5px; background: #FAFAD2; border: 1px solid #AAAAAA; -moz-border-radius: 6px; margin-bottom: 4px;"| [[File:LinkFA-star.png|right]] ==[[ARTICLE NAME]]== [[IMAGE]] {{QUOTE}} INTRODUCTION {{Rm|ARTICLE NAME}} |}

for your list of successful noms (easier to view in edit mode)? It uses the same format as what's on the main page and you don't have to copy all of the text of each article into your portfolio. —GethralkinHyperwave 13:44, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

  • Oops, nevermind. That's the format you actually are using. I missed the "Read More" links at the ends. —GethralkinHyperwave 17:08, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

Dubrillion's Alliegiance[]

How is it that Dubrillion is allied with the Separatists, in the Atlas, there is no mention of the world's affiliation.-- 02:47, October 24, 2012 (UTC)

Yes I know, but on this page, in the discussion they mentioned that a map cannot necessarily determine a planet's allegiance. Even so Fondor and Uba IV are Separatist worlds yet they are located in Republic space likewise Wroona and Gyndine are Republic worlds in Separatist space, so Dubrillion can't be confirmed as a Separatist world.-- 03:21, October 24, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry to keep bothering you but where do I go to read the specific user agreement for this site the terms of use for wiki doesn't deny a user the ability to delete their own content in fact it seems focused on the right for anyone to delete if the user user is under the age of thirteen.

An opinion on Celly[]

Hello Trak Nar. I wondered whether you could give me your opinion about that Celly Organa article I've been working with for the current Policits Barn-Burner. I'm not sure if I should nominate it as a GA or if it could be made into a FA with additional work. Also, while I'm not sure you agree to give copy-edits, I must confess it would be a great help, since no native speaker has reviewed the article since I started working on it. Thansk in advance.

Check your email. :P We need to decide what to do here, either start a CT or officially just drop it. It's time for both of us to "shit or get off the pot", so to speak, and I think you would do a better job of wording a CT and determining voting options. If you want to discuss it with me in IRC sometime in the next few nights, let me know and I'll make sure I'm available.

I only seek to clarify the canonicity of the titles. I've played Dark Forces and Jedi Knights a number of times and do not recall these battles being titled specifically as such or even given a name in some cases. Sure the events happened but I do not recall them being named. Also, I'm not adding templates to every page. I'm being quite selective as I go through the Galactic Civil War template. However, as I do not currently have access to an installed copy of these games I have been adding the { {Confirm-battletitle} } instead to bring it to the attention of others. Rokkur Shen (talk) 08:45, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

  • However, upon your reverts I've realised that the sources were the graphic novels not the games. Apologies. Rokkur Shen (talk) 08:49, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
    • I understand, however I'm working on the road at the moment and therefore appending tags depending on whether I have access to the source material or not. I've been appending conjecture tags where I am able to confirm whereas for those sources that I do not currently have on me I've been adding the { {Confirm-battletitle} } so that other users can be aware of the current lack of confirmed canon names or so that at a later date I can come back to the [Category:Articles with unconfirmed titles] page and append a { conjecture } tag. Rokkur Shen (talk) 08:57, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

  • OK, Thanks!!! Rokkur Shen (talk) 08:26, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
    • Hey Trak, looks like I've got a faulty copy of Book of Sith. Comparing my copy to my cousins, a printing smudge led me to read "Typhojem" as "Typhogem" I've merged the contents into the correct page Typhojem. If it's no trouble, would you mind deleting Typhogem? Rokkur Shen (talk) 09:25, January 17, 2013 (UTC)

Hey Trak, thanks for fixing those double redirects. I must admit I was up rather late working on the Essential Atlas Online Companion article and must have misread the correct links. Rokkur Shen (talk) 09:58, January 27, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Star Wars: Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets Gand appearance[]

Hi Trak, yeah they do indeed make only a single-page appearance. A Gand is among the crew of the pirate airship Bloodskull and the individual participated an attack on the airship Windrunner in 3 BBY after the pirates were hired by Rodas Borgin to kidnap Count Bron Dooku. That's pretty much it. I'm happy to sent you a scan if you so wish; could you provide me with your email address? --Jinzler (talk) 10:03, January 27, 2013 (UTC)

Mandalorian image[]

Hi Trak Nar, it's Jeyo. (the one who kept failing to properly upload images.) I was wondering why you deleted the last one I uploaded. I had just finished adding the following:

|description=An unidentified Death Watch soldier.
|source={{TCW|Shades of Reason}} via [http://starwars.com/watch/tcwep_515.html Starwars.com]
|other versions=
|cat artist=
|cat licensee=[[Category:Images from Shades of Reason]]
|cat subject=[[Category:Images of Mandalorians]]
|cat type=[[Category:3D CGI animation images]]

and was about to add it to the Death watch member's page, when I saw that it had been deleted. Could you tell me what I did wrong? (It's possible that you were in the process of deleting it right as I was in the process of categorizing it.) Thanks, Jeyo (talk) 06:41, January 29, 2013 (UTC)

It's fine; I reuploaded it, as I'm sure you saw. But the odd thing is that when doing it, I filled in all the necessary parameters before clicking "upload" and yet, once the picture was there, it had none of the information I had provided. I had to take it from another image of the same character for the copyright, source and categories to appear. Do you know what might have caused that? Thanks, Jeyo (talk) 01:21, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Caridan system[]

Hey Trak, just wondering if you would mind moving Carida system to Caridan system as it is the canon name as established in Champions of the Force and the now defunct Wizards.com site. Also I can't find mention of Carida system anywhere but the Star Wars: The Essential Atlas Online Companion which lists system names in a quasi-canon manner. Rokkur Shen (talk) 02:41, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Uprising in Theed[]

Hey. I just wanted to let you know that this article, which you deleted in May 2012 as fanon, actually had canonical revisions in the page history, which I found after deleting a vandalism page created at that title tonight. An anon previously warned for fanon had changed the canon description to the fanon version in February 2011 (see the still-deleted revisions versus the undeleted page history) I've restored the non-fanon revisions, as you can see from the links I just gave. Let me know if you have any questions about this. —MJ— Holocomm 03:34, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Encyclopedia additions[]

Hello Trak, just letting you know that I added Encyclopedia entries to the sourcelists of 4-LOM, Gand and Zuckuss, all of which I believe you are primarily responsible for. Please check to see if they should be rearranged to somewhere else, as I can have trouble with ordering sources. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 21:46, February 1, 2013 (UTC)

Licensed video proposal[]

Hey Trak, a thought just struck me upon the archiving of the CT page. Did anyone happen to raise the possibility (outside of the CT page) of requesting licensed HQ images as an alternative to video? Rokkur Shen (talk) 04:30, February 7, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, KyranEllis

Image Query[]

Hi Trak, it's Jeyo again. Lately I've been uploading images with the proper licensing, categorizing and sourcing and they've all turned out fine -- until now. On File:Vizsla Helmet.jpg, it looks like Nowiki tags have been put around the Information template. Do you know what's causing it to do that? Jeyo (talk) 07:54, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, I see. Thanks for fixing it; I'll be sure to avoid doing that in the future. Jeyo (talk) 08:12, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

Cleo Mangi[]

Hi Trak, was wondering if you could check this blast from past:


I've been trying to confirm the name of this character by going through the cards at http://www.starwarsccg.org/ one by one with no luck. Unfortunately I cannot seem to locate the specific source. As far as I can gather, the name has been disputed since way back when, then an anon added the line "(the name is mentioned in the technician lore)" which was subsequently replaced with {{Mo}}. I know this is from a looooong time ago but are you able to point me in the direction of the said "technician lore"? I was going to post a query on the page creator User:CBenoit's talk page but it's protected for some reason. He appears active as late as November last year however. Rokkur Shen (talk) 10:17, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

  • The article states both male and female. The article is clearly about the male technician that is fiddling with the panel as Lando, Han, Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO walk by in Empire. The decipher card picture also matches the on-screen character and clearly establishes him to be male, while expanding his backstory. It's definitely not Kebyc. The only other place I can think of that a name may have been mentioned is in the original rule book for the CCG game perhaps or the actual card was revised upon release and does not match the .gif uploaded on the original decipher site. However, I do not currently have access to a copy of the manual and do not own that particular card. Rokkur Shen (talk) 04:46, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
  • Hehe, nice choice! Do it! :) Thanks for trying, I think I'll raise it in the Senate Hall, as I'm not game enough to move it yet. Rokkur Shen (talk) 04:57, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
  • Hi Trak, thanks for the input/editing. As this is my first attempt at a CAN, I was unsure exactly what to add to a "Behind the scenes" section in this particular case. Would the addition of "This individual was first seen in the 1980 theatrical release of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back played by an uncredited extra. In November 1997, Decipher, as part of the Cloud City Limited expansion, released the Cloud City Technician card that detailed his backstory. The character however, was left unnamed." be sufficient? Rokkur Shen (talk) 08:46, February 12, 2013 (UTC)
    • Out of courtesy, I thought I'd let you know that Menk has suggested a significant number of changes since you last reviewed the Cloud City technician page. I've updated the page in accordance with the points he's made. I'm still unsure however on his points regarding "the duck test". I was reluctant to add human as his species, as we simply do not know, and I hate making assumptions. I have however added it anyway. Thanks again. Rokkur Shen (talk) 12:11, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

FAN page reviewing[]

Hey, Trak,

I'm writing this to you on behalf of the entire Inquisitorius. At our recent meeting, we discussed the current lack of non-INQs who are actively involved in reviewing on the FAN page, and we decided that the best solution was to simply appeal to people to review more. This first paragraph is being sent verbatim to a whole bunch of people, but the following one is being written specifically for you.

What's interesting is that you're actually way ahead of me on this one. :P You started actively reviewing as soon as we had that big IRC discussion about this a couple weeks before the INQ meeting. So, thank you for that. And hopefully you can keep doing what you're doing. More reviewing means that your skills will be sharp enough to write a near-perfect article when it comes time to FAN Toryn. ;) Cheers, and have a great day!

Re: Your talk page....[]

Hey! Thanks! :D --Lord Zervonn TALK 04:54, March 7, 2013 (UTC)


Hey, I was planning to move the information to BTS but was unable to copy and reformat due to a glitch on my computer, as I told ShadowEmperor on his talk page. However, two things, either if you want to do them or let me do them. 1. Information later retconned as non-canon is supposed to be in the Behind the scenes section- perhaps in the section on canon source conflicts in Dooku's article. Usually it is written in present tense and out-of-universe, such as, "In Obsession, Ventress continues to serve the CIS, and she is defeated..." 2. I can send you the exact link to what leland Chee said; it's the second to last reference on Asajj Ventress's article, but Leland Chee says that while Ventress's fate at Boz Pity is non-canon, we should "salvage" other elements of the battle. Therefore, Dooku's involvement in the battle, including his duel with Windu and the quote/image, should be kept in the biography section, as they are still canon, with all mentions of Ventress moved to the Behind the scenes section.

Sent you a message[]

Hi Trak -

I sent you an email yesterday to the email address associated with your account here and wanted to make sure you received it. If not, let me know and I'll resend to the email address of your choice. Thanks! Jen Burton (help forum | blog) 16:48, March 13, 2013 (UTC)


Hey there Trak. If you get around to deleting File:Trash.jpg tonight, can you please update the image in the {{Tc}} template also? I would have myself, but the template is locked. - JMAS Jolly Trooper.png Hey, it's me! 06:25, March 18, 2013 (UTC)

File revision deletion[]

Hey Trak, can you delete the version of File:KotOR Omnibus.jpg that I just uploaded? Wikia is doing something screwy during the upload. I am looking at my higher res version of this image, and it is the same tone and shade of green as the smaller one the previous uploader submitted. Yet, when I upload mine, or in the little preview of my file when I try to upload again, it displays it in that bright neon green. - JMAS Jolly Trooper.png Hey, it's me! 05:00, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

  • There must have been some kind of meta data embedded in the original image file. Just opening the image to view it in Firefox and it still show in the bright green. Once I converted it to PNG, then back to its native JPG format, it seems to have purged whatever it was causing the discoloration. - JMAS Jolly Trooper.png Hey, it's me! 23:14, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

Sith Emperor (third option)[]

Hi, upon comments from User:LelalMekha a third option has been proposed. Feel free to review the changes to the voting options @ Forum:CT:Move_Sith_Emperor_to_Emperor_Vitiate. Rokkur Shen (talk) 12:45, April 9, 2013 (UTC)


Ookay, sorry to anyone offended but User:Jwebb13 is my page; I just haven't used my old login for so long that I can't remember the bloody thing, so I just dealt with things from my current one. I hope this clears up any confusion that would lead to making me undo that "On Hiatus" message again over there, heh.... DefiantHeretic (talk) 06:30, April 27, 2013 (UTC)

I just tried to sort through the help page, accidentally sent in an incorrect username change request - probably making things worse, and I was wondering if there was anyone I could just e-mail about allowing a simple redirect to my new user ID? DefiantHeretic (talk) 07:02, April 27, 2013 (UTC)

I need your ears :)[]

Hello Trak! I wondered if I could borrow your ears for a moment. I'm trying to transcribe the sentence heard in this video to use it as a quote. However, being non native speaker of English, I cannot understand it all. The guy says "Ando Prime, home of the ??? and the Bendu monks." Could you help me out? Regards. --LelalMekha (talk) 09:29, May 10, 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks a lot. Even if we're not sure, I think I'll settle for "noble" and use that quote anyway, because I'm in dire need of quotes on the Order of Dai Bendu. If someone finds out it's incorrect, he or she may still fix it. --LelalMekha (talk) 09:44, May 10, 2013 (UTC)

Objections pending[]

Hey Trak, just letting you know that you have objections in this GAN that have remained answered for a month (the limit should be 2 weeks). I'd urge you to try and look at them whenever you're available. Thank you. Winterz (talk) 15:52, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

Troublesome anon[]

Hey, so the anon who edited the Unidentified Coruscant power generator engineer pages,, has been warned multiple times over the past couple days about constantly adding the unsourced speculation onto these, and other pages. Trip391 (talk) 06:51, May 21, 2013 (UTC)


Hey there, Trak! I just wanted to inform you that your Unidentified Aurorient Express band conductor nomination, though failed, was the third article for you to nominate recently that falls under the scope of WookieeProject Entertainment and Culture. Because of this, I'm sending you a message to see if perhaps you'd be interested in joining the project. If not, that's perfectly ok. Thanks for your time and happy Memorial Day. MasterFredCommerce Guild.svg(Whatever) 15:36, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

Well fine then, if that's what you want me to do. And secondly, I do not ramble, rave (and all that other stuff you said at the top on this talk page) so I'm not gonna do it here. Thank you. StarWizardWars

Bright side of the Force[]

Why was the redirect "Bright side of the Force" (which will redirect anyway to "Light side of the Force") deleted?

Justification for creating the redirect: The antonym of "dark" (used as an adjective, as in "dark side") is "bright," and I believed it made some sense to make the redirect, as some would assume that "Bright side" equals "Light side." 17:19, June 7, 2013 (UTC)

Admin request[]

Hi Trak, I was wondering if you could help me with something. I have recently been working on the Nariss Siv Loqesh article and before I nominate it on the FAN page the article needs to be moved to Andov Syn. This is the name that the character later adopted and would be the most appropriate article title per the naming policy, because it is his latest chronological name and the name by which he was publicly known. I can't move the article myself because the current Andov Syn redirect is in the way, so could you please delete the redirect and move the page for me? Thanks. --Jinzler (talk) 14:05, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

  • Actually, don't worry, JangFett has now done this for me. Cheers. --Jinzler (talk) 14:29, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Gand in TCWUK "Lockdown"[]

Hi Trak, the Gand bounty hunter Esu makes an appearance in the comic. He's only a minor character and his article pretty much summarizes what happens to him during the comic story. --Jinzler (talk) 11:39, June 9, 2013 (UTC)

Scout Transport edit (AT-ST)[]

Hi Trak,

I wanted to provide a proper cite for some incorrect info on the All Terrain Scout Transport page. I corrected the information and grew frustrated when user Trip391 continued to revert my changes and then said (arrogantly) that any further edits by me would be seen as "vandalism". My edit concerns the "Behind the scenes" portion of the wiki page stating Bill George created a study model of the first AT-ST walker that George Lucas liked so much that he included it in Empire Strikes Back. Bill George did not start working at ILM until 1981 which was two years after this concept model was made. I've scanned the page from an original 1980 Cinefex #3 issue which gives Star Wars art director Joe Johnston credit as the creator of the model. This issue goes into the most depth of any article ever written on the creation of the Hoth filming sequences for Empire. A link to the page I scanned was was sent to Trip391 as proof but still no correction has been made. Cinefex is an incredibly respected publication and Joe speaks about his creation of this model on page 17. As this information comes from 1980 I feel it is much more accurate than a book written in 2006 by Lorne Peterson (who many ILM employees consider somewhat of an "absent minded professor" due to his age). The scanned article page from Cinefex can be viewed here: http://i.imgur.com/wTF4EI1.jpg As you are an admin I respectfully ask if I can make this correction to the Scout Transport walker's page without Trip391 interfering with my edit.

The Electric Company Magazine[]

I have one thing to ask: How can the page for The Electric Company Magazine be nonsense if it's supposed to be a real thing? -- LegalizeAnythingMuppets (talk) 02:12, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Star Wars Character Encyclopedia[]

Hello Trak, do you have the Star Wars Character Encyclopedia? I believe I have gotten your help finding info from that source in the past. My lack of access to all the sources that give relevant info to the Imperial advisors is the main thing inhibiting me from writing up and nominating the Unidentified red-and-black-robed Imperial advisor article. The book does have a preview on Amazon, but that preview does not include the page on the advisors. Thanks in advance. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 04:50, December 17, 2013 (UTC)

Creatures of the Galaxy[]

The current barn-burner reminded me that the "payment" for that copy of Creatures of the Galaxy (in the form of at least one Featured or Good article) is still outstanding. Perhaps the barn-burner would be a good opportunity to tackle Svaper or Ghest? ;-) jSarek (talk) 01:04, December 23, 2013 (UTC)


Hi Trak. When you have a moment, could you please delete the redirect Jerrilekan? It is not needed and was a wholly conjectural title someone came up with. Cheers. --Eyrezer (talk) 15:16, August 11, 2014 (UTC)

Celebration Anaheim stuffs[]

  • Hey again, Trak. We have nine months until the convention. I figured now would be a good time to officially kick things into gear on Wookieepedia. You said that you are certain of attending this year, yes? I already have the ticket and a friend that is sharing the room. One thing I wanted to speak to you directly about was the possibility of designing a t-shirt for this con. Thanks. -- Riffsyphon1024 19:05, August 11, 2014 (UTC)


Hello. This message is to inform you that you do not currently meet the contribution quotas necessary to maintain your sysops. Your six-month deadline for both expired on August 28. Since no one noticed this nor issued you the customary sequential warnings to inform you that this deadline was approaching, I'm going to give you until 0:00 UTC on Friday, September 5 to bring your contributions back in line with these requirements, or your sysops will be removed per site policy. Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 14:42, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
