Sorry about the confusion over that droid page and {{Citation}}. If you can confirm for me that they exist on carrick station, I'll remove the template and properly cite it (for various reasons, my opportunities to actually play TOR are a bit sporadic). However, I've been marking pages for things such as mounts and weapons with {{Citation}} as well, and I realized that since they appear in game outside of certain locations or missions, it might be fine to just cite them to the game as a whole. I would appreciate your opinion on the matter. Thanks! Fan26 (Talk) 17:22, March 15, 2019 (UTC)

    • Thanks. I'll probably stop tagging such articles with the Citation template then. Cheers. Fan26 (Talk) 19:33, March 15, 2019 (UTC)
      • Hey, regarding that droid and the citation template, I meant in terms of things like weapons and speeders. Sorry for the miscommunication. Fan26 (Talk) 21:43, March 15, 2019 (UTC)

Hi Winterz. Just in case you haven't seen it, I left a question for you in one of your TC threads. Asithol (talk) 21:17, March 25, 2019 (UTC)

TOR appearances

First, nice job getting started on that monstrosity. Secondly, I was about to add "Lassicar's parents" to the characters section. I don't want to create an edit conflict, so could you let me know if you're able to stop for a second so I can go in and add them? Fan26 (Talk) 14:46, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

  • Great, thanks! Fan26 (Talk) 15:00, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
    • Okay, thanks for doing that-I've suffered the same problem with that page, probably everyone would. If you want to go ahead and knock everything off the list, all the redlinks in my TOR projects subpage are planned to be added. Fan26 (Talk) 15:29, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

Re:NPC articles

Yes, I would be opposed to its deletion. Obviously, creating articles for every time of NPC is impossible, and we don't need articles for every time of NPC (such as all of the criminal NPCs named "Gang-name synonym-for-fighter" or the dumb different creature NPCs named "adjective creature-name"). However, articles where the NPC is a clear in-universe concept without crossing over into the realm of stupid over-coverage of the game, such as military units like the Eternal Empire trooper and its variants, should have pages. Fan26 (Talk) 12:43, April 11, 2019 (UTC)

  • It's their in-universe notability as different types of soldiers deployed by the Eternal Empire. Even if the names are simply the result of game mechanics, it is the name the game gives them and therefore their 'canonical' name. Fan26 (Talk) 14:24, April 11, 2019 (UTC)
    • Eh, the special operator was probably capitalized because I thought it a different type of unit or something from the rest's 'standard' unit type. Either it or the others will have to be renamed I guess. As for spending time creating articles for every NPC, I had a couple discussions on IRC a while back about this, and my decision was to create articles only for what were clearly some type of in-universe unit, and assume the rest as game mechanics. For that list of Imperial NPCs, probably less than half would fall under this. Your argument for just having them on their respective militaries' pages confuses me-by that argument Stormtrooper should just redirect to a subsection on Imperial Military. As for the images, I didn't actually have the game when I created the articles, and haven't been able to get to the star fortress missions yet. I'm hoping to replace them as soon as possible. Fan26 (Talk) 12:44, April 12, 2019 (UTC)
      • As an in-universe soldier type, one that is a reasonable type of soldier as opposed to the dozens of crap Imperial soldier types generated through game mechanics we agree aren't necessary, it should have a page. Fan26 (Talk) 12:56, April 12, 2019 (UTC)

Thank you

Thanks man, I appreciate it. No problems with finishing the SWTOR appearances cleanup off! Kind regards Darth Tomotron Revanchist Sith.svg (talk) 01:50, October 25, 2019 (UTC)


For a user that has been here for a long time, please remember that every bit of information added to the Wookieepedia must be sourced and references must be added. That way it can be verified by anyone. If you are going to undo the removal then the information must have references, otherwise it will end up being reverted again--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 06:13, October 25, 2019 (UTC)

  • I know there's a bunch of information unsourced, but that's not a reason to keep adding more. Anyways information is sourced now--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 06:31, October 25, 2019 (UTC)

Re:3630/3629 BBY

I actually talked about with an an IP user here. They had determined the 3629 date based on the ending conversation at the end, with Scourge and Kira, and I worked up a ref note for them. I'm sorry, this is on me, I guess I assumed you had seen that already and just kept forgetting to source the date. Sorry. Fan26 (Talk) 14:50, October 29, 2019 (UTC)

  • Oh, seems like you added that you've seen that or something. That logic seems sound AFAICT, but if you think a SH thread is needed, go ahead. Fan26 (Talk) 14:53, October 29, 2019 (UTC)
    • Which companion convos at the end of KOTET? AFAIK, the only people who reference the Battle of Zakuul being around a year ago are Kira and Scourge, and they only do it indirectly. Fan26 (Talk) 15:01, October 29, 2019 (UTC)

Re: CT: Outlander affiliation

Thank you for letting me know. I'm glad someone is taking initiative on trying to deal with how the Wook will cover this new, difficult phase of TOR, even though I don't entirely agree with all your ideas on how it should be done.

I hope you understand when I say I need some time to think this over-I'm not sure if I agree with the proposal, nor do I really think it's gotten to the point it's completely impossible to keep covering it all in the BtS.

I've looked over the CT and I recommend your clarify that this affects the Ossus and Dantooine storylines as well as the Onslaught expansion, given the faction decision was made prior to Ossus. Also, I think you should explain how this deals with the Loyalist/Saboteur mechanic. I haven't played any Onslaught or watched much in the way of walkthroughs, so I don't know the differences between a Republic victory in the Republic loyalist storyline and the Imperial saboteur storyline (or vice versa for an Imperial victory), but I'm assuming there's some differences, which the CT should talk about addressing. Fan26 (Talk) 03:45, November 2, 2019 (UTC)

  • I'm sorry, but I've made my thoughts on the matter clear. Fan26 (Talk) 15:05, November 2, 2019 (UTC)
    • I was actually just about to ask about that on the CT page, thank you for taking care of that. I'll go take a look now. Fan26 (Talk) 15:25, November 2, 2019 (UTC)


Hey Winterz, please remeber to source new TOR articles using TORcite. Thanks, Fan26 (Talk) 15:08, November 7, 2019 (UTC)

  • Please read the instructions on the Template:TORcite page on how to cite class missions, also the date ref requires elaboration to explain why the specific event can be placed in 3642. Fan26 (Talk) 19:35, November 7, 2019 (UTC)
    • Sorry if that's how this is coming off, that's not the impression I meant to give. I'm barely halfway through Korriban for the Warrior, so I'm not comfortable toying around with a date reference for something I haven't done myself, you are correct, I could (and should) have corrected the template myself. Sorry. Fan26 (Talk) 20:22, November 7, 2019 (UTC)

Please find something better to do

Winterz, please go find something better to do than just fixing redirects. I hate to tell anyone to stop contributing to Wookieepedia, but what you're doing is a waste of time and manpower. Any redirects that need to be fixed can be done so by a bot. In most cases, redirects don't need to be fixed simply for their own sake, nor is it advisable. In fact, as that section explains, it can actually be detrimental. All you're doing is clogging up the Recent changes and page histories. We have untold hours of actual maintenance work that needs to be done that isn't easily completed by a bot, such as fixing missing backup links. If you need something to do, this is a much more valuable way to spend your time. Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 23:45, January 23, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Archival links

Does this occur on file pages only? If so, it is indeed a known issue. For whatever reason, adding a link with https:// will not allow you to save file pages. This can be circumvented by using "{{subst:https}}" in place of "https"; for example, you'd use {{subst:https}} If your issue is occurring outside file pages, then it might be unrelated to this. However you could try using {{https}} for that issue as well, if https links seem to be the problem. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 19:05, January 29, 2020 (UTC)

  • No problem! If you engage in large-scale backup link projects, I encourage you to add them to User:Xd1358/test1. It looks a bit intimidating at first but it's very simple. This way, EcksBot will add any backup links you add to the page to all applicable pages. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 20:23, January 29, 2020 (UTC)
