Insider 56 Edit

Hey, Xwing328! I noticed you have Star Wars Insider 56 listed as part of your collection. I'm looking for the article "Unseen Planets of Episode I", specifically for anything it may say about the Croke, Rokur Gepta, or the Sorcerers of Tund. Would you be able to check it for me? I really do appreciate any help you can offer! ~ SavageBob 22:00, January 3, 2011 (UTC)

  • Here you go:

Lando's chief nemesis throughout the series was a theatrically vengeful villain known as Rokur Gepta, the Sorcerer of Tund.

The Tund of Smith's books was a wasteland, rendered barren by Gepta's treachery. Turns out the villain wasn't a true Sorcerer at all, merely a spellcasting snail with delusions of grandeur. After infiltrating the Sorcerers' ranks and learning their dark side magic, Gepta (a tiny alien Croke) annihilated them all with a weapon of mass destruction. The planet Tund endured as a whispered enigma, a vast mausoleum for a vanished order of warlocks.

  • And a little bit about Toong'l we don't have: "After all, at that point in the timeline—thirty-odd years before the events of the Lando Calrissian adventures—the Sorcerers' planet would have still been lush and green." Hope this helps! —Xwing328(Talk) 02:59, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
    • Yes, it does help! One last question, though: What's the page number for this information? Thanks a ton! ~ SavageBob 03:06, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
      • 54 for the first two sentences, 55 for the rest. —Xwing328(Talk) 03:12, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
        • Info added. Thanks again! ~ SavageBob 03:22, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Insider 41 Edit

Hi Xwing! Could you check the 41st Insider's The Evolution of Star Wars: Exploring the Lost Cut article for any mention or picture of this woman? I've found this picture on a fansite, but it doesn't give the source of it. Does it comes from the Lost Cut article? Have you ever seen this picture in an official source? Darth Morrt 15:59, January 21, 2011 (UTC)

  • I got the answer in the Senate Hall. Sorry for bothering you. Darth Morrt 17:14, January 21, 2011 (UTC)
    • No problem. I was gonna check tonight but glad you found it! Cheers! —Xwing328(Talk) 20:01, January 21, 2011 (UTC)

ANH junior novel Edit

Hi Xwing! Could you check the ANH junior novel for appearance and any additional info on the following characters: WED-15-77, Nahdonnis Praji, Unidentified stormtrooper commander (Tantive IV), Unidentified 501st stormtrooper, DV-692, Unidentified WED-15 Treadwell (Lars homestead)? Darth Morrt 20:37, February 12, 2011 (UTC)

  • That's asking for a lot from one book. Maybe I'll make it my next project to fully go through the ANH novel and make sure we have all the info. I doubt you'll find anything more about the "unidentified" characters either, hence why they're unidentified, but we'll see. —Xwing328(Talk) 04:20, February 15, 2011 (UTC)
    • Yeh, I just thought to ask them at the same time, so I wouldn't have to ask you to look into the book again and again. They all appear relativly early in the book, before the Lars are killed. These articles are or will be soon nominated to CA, GA, FA. Could you check the stormtrooper who says "the Death Star plans are not in the main computer" just before Antilles is choked? It's article is close to reach status, since Toprawa's review is already in the middle of it. My copy of the book is already on the way to my place, but it is still a week it arrives. I will be able check the rest of them myself. I know that probably nothing new will be revealed in the novel, since junior novels are not known by their continuity boom, but I have to check it anyway. Darth Morrt 09:07, February 15, 2011 (UTC)
      • Heh, I might actually have something here for DV-692. It says that the stormtrooper who said "She'll be all right. Inform Lord Vader we have a prisoner" was the squad's leader. —Xwing328(Talk) 04:31, February 16, 2011 (UTC)
      • The two Treadwells do not appear in the junior novel, only the Treadwell that the Jawas try to sell to Owen. There's no new info I could find about the others you wanted me to look for. —Xwing328(Talk) 04:52, February 16, 2011 (UTC)

Holiday! Celebrate! Edit

Wookieecookie
SavageBob has awarded you a Wookiee Cookie!
For helping to create the Holiday Infobox, I hereby offer you a cookie with which to throw your own party!
~ SavageBob 05:33, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

Haha, thanks! :) Our templates used to be so simple to make until we had to fancify them with all those #if expressions. —Xwing328(Talk) 05:49, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

Insider 73 Edit

Hey, Xwing. I've rounded up all the sources for Shawda Ubb, and I'm ready to start expanding the article, but there's one more I need. Apparently, the Growdi Harmonique played by Rappertunie is mentioned somewhere in Insider 73. I'm guessing that if the organ is mentioned, Rappertunie is mentioned. Unfortunately, the person who added the source to the growdi page didn't note which article the mention is in. If you get a few minutes, would you mind checking? Thanks a ton, ~ SavageBob 16:55, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hey Bob, there's a picture of him with his harmonique in the that issue's "Toy Box" section entitled "Mindul of the Future." It just has his full name, short name, and that he played his "growdi harmonique" (note the lowercase capitalization) with the Max Rebo Band. I think that's the only appearance. —Xwing328(Talk) 04:01, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
    • Awesome, thanks. So no species ID? And what's the page no.? ~ SavageBob 04:31, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
      • Nope, no species. P. 89. —Xwing328(Talk) 04:33, March 2, 2011 (UTC)

Bot Edit

Hello Xwing328, first of all please excuse me my english, and I would like to thank you very much for this page from where I could set up my bot in Star Wars Wiki en español two weeks ago, it has been working succesfully those days, running category.py and replace.py scripts, but since yesterday the bot doesn`t work any more and says:

Error downloading data: No JSON object could be decoded
Request es:/api.php?

I have no idea how to fix the problem, I have been searching in the internet but I don´t find any solution, and it seams to be very complicated, ¿Do you have any idea? Thank you for all. --Zeist Antilles flimsiplast 21:51, March 2, 2011 (UTC)

  • I'll have to check my personal computer when I get home, but the problem is probably with the configuration of the starwars family python file. It is stored somewhere like C:\Python\pywikipedia\families\starwars.py. It makes calls to http://es.starwars.wikia.com/api.php, and I guess it has a problem during that. I haven't updated that page in a while, so it may be out of date. —Xwing328(Talk) 23:49, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
    Hi again, it seams everything is ok rightnow, the bot is working, I don´t know what happened before, may be the server was out, who knows? Any way, thank you so much for your help :) Even you haven't updated in a while your page, it has been very useful. Again thank you. --Zeist Antilles flimsiplast 00:36, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

Edit

  • Now that, is funny. ;) -- Riffsyphon1024 08:59, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
    • Hey Xwing :). Nice work on the birthday logo :P. Would you be able to make a birthday version of this while you're at it for logged-out users? Cheers, Grunny (talk) 09:05, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
      • I can't seem to upload it over the original version. I've updated File:Wordmark-logo.png in the mean time, in case somebody can figure out why the system is preventing it from change. —Xwing328(Talk) 17:41, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
        • Could be a cache issue. Have you held Shift + Reload on the wiki? -- Riffsyphon1024 20:27, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
          • Wasn't this file one of those things that has to go thru "theme designer" of the New Wikia Look or whatitshouldbecalledanyway? –Tm_T (Talk) 20:54, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
            • If that's the case, then we may not get this through by the time the 4th is over. -- Riffsyphon1024 22:12, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
              • In before the bell, but not sure if it was worth it this late :P. Grunny (talk) 23:17, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
                • Thanks Grunny! Don't know how you did it! —Xwing328(Talk) 03:17, March 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hey do you know where i can find a list of all the pages that do not exist. Also who is Darth Homiiz72.229.183.70 19:10, March 17, 2011 (UTC)

Stepping down Edit

I know this has been on the horizon for you for a while, but it's still sad to see it happen. But since that horizon is filled with bigger and better things . . . I won't dwell on it. :-) jSarek 11:36, July 22, 2011 (UTC)

Episode I Adventures 15: The Final Battle Edit

Hey Xwing. I've been trying to find someone who owns the book Episode I Adventures 15: The Final Battle. I am working on the Ki-Adi-Mundi page and I understand he is in that book, but I can't get my hands on it. When I checked the "What links here" for that book's page, it included your username. Do you own that book? If so, can you tell me what Ki's role was in it? Thanks in advance! — Hunter Kahn 15:54, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi Kahn, no, unfortunately I don't have that book. You probably saw my username on the What Links Here page because it was one of the articles I created. You can find a list of books I do have at User:Xwing328/Collection (make sure they're not crossed out) if you need any other sources. Good luck finding what you're looking for! —Xwing328(Talk) 16:46, September 8, 2011 (UTC)
    • Thanks Xwing! — Hunter Kahn 20:56, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you yet again, but I see from your collection list that you own Star Wars Insider 83. There is an article in there called "Multiple Personality" about Ki-Adi-Mundi actor Silas Carson. I'm nearly done with my expansion of the Ki-Adi-Mundi article but I was hoping to find out whether there was anything from that article that isn't currently included in the BTS section. Any way you can help me out with this? Let me know either on the Wook or via email at hunterkhn at gmail dot com. Thanks! — Hunter Kahn 16:53, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hey again, I didn't see much of anything in the article that isn't already in the BTS. There is a bit on page 49 describing his prosthetic pieces: there was the head, front piece, two cheek pieces, and the hair that were all glued and painted together on his face. Don't know if that's useful at all though. —Xwing328(Talk) 19:08, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
    • That's cool. Thanks, much appreciated! — Hunter Kahn 19:52, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

The Ultimate Visual Guide Edit

Hey, Xwing. I saw Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide listed in your collection, so I decided to ask you. Apparently, Mana Veridi is mentioned somewhere in the book. Is that so, and if it is, in what context is she mentioned? I need this for my Qui-Gon Jinn project, as I'm trying to figure out whether the events of Once Bitten are canon. A mention of Mana in the Visual Guide could mean that Once Bitten is canon. Oh, and if it's not too much, could you also check if any events or characters from Mythology are referenced? QuiGonJinn Senate seal(Talk) 17:28, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

  • Actually, I've just found out that the events of Once Bitten are referenced in the CSWE, but still, any information from the Visual Guide is appreciated :) QuiGonJinn Senate seal(Talk) 19:57, October 26, 2011 (UTC)
    • I was able to find one mention of her. She's not in the Index at the back unfortunately (although that index does have a few mistakes), but one of the sections about Aurra Sing says, "After receiving a distress signal from the Jedi Mana Veridi, the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan apprentice, Obi-Wan Kenobi, travel to the planet Kwannot." It goes on to say they are too late to rescue Veridi, and Sing adds Veridi's weapon to her collection. —Xwing328(Talk) 03:53, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
    • This is all on page 28, FYI. —Xwing328(Talk) 03:54, October 27, 2011 (UTC)

Insider 50 Edit

Hey Xwing. I'm really sorry to bother you, but your collection page lists Insider 50, and the CUSWE tells me that Graxol Kelvyyn is mentioned somewhere inside. I'm afraid I don't have anywhere specific to point you... but is there any way you could take a quick gander through and let me know what you find? Thanks. Menkooroo 15:28, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

  • I'll try to check tonight, but finding one mention in an entire magazine may be a little tricky. —Xwing328(Talk) 18:32, December 8, 2011 (UTC)
    • Thanks. Sorry that I couldn't be more specific. :S Menkooroo 07:48, December 9, 2011 (UTC)
    • I predict that he's mentioned in "Ralph McQuarrie and Doug Chiang: Master Meets Apprentice," as Doug Chiang drew the Anx concept art that Kelvyyn was based on. I hope that helps. Menkooroo 08:02, December 9, 2011 (UTC)
      • Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find a single mention of him. Maybe it was a mistake in the CUSWE, since our article does say he appears in #48, but the CUSWE says #50. —Xwing328(Talk) 08:02, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
        • Thanks for looking! Sorry that it ended up being a wild goose chase. I really appreciate the effort. Come back and write an article so that I can help you with a source! :P Menkooroo 05:06, December 14, 2011 (UTC)

Info Edit

Hello! I know you probably don't know me, but my name is HenryDuckFan (or ARCTrooperFan), and I just so happen to notice that hardly anyone has edited on Star Wars Merchandise Wiki, and since I've been editing on there quite a bit, and no other admins have, would you mind letting me, or asking another admin, if I could actually become an admin? I've also been really interested in adopting the site, but I would like to discuss this with you first before doing so on Community Central! ARCTrooperFan 23:46, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hey ArcTrooperFan. I don't really have any interest in continuing to work with the Merchandise Wiki. Since you'll probably want to be a bureaucrat of the site, I guess you should contact wikia staff or Community Central and bring the issue up. I don't know if any of the other admins are currently active on the site or not. —Xwing328(Talk) 08:05, December 13, 2011 (UTC)

There aren't any active admins. But thanks for letting me know! ARCTrooperFan 23:15, December 14, 2011 (UTC)

Insider 62: Charal & Noa Edit

Hello Xwing328. I see you've been sollicited quite a lot for Insider related queries, so I feel a bit ashamed to ask you once more, but... I've been working hard on the Charal article to turn it into a FANom, and Menkooroo told me of the Return to Endor feature that was pusblished in the Star Wars Insider 62. It seems that Siân Phillips gave an interview in it, and I'd like to know if there is any relevant info about her character. (By the way, Menkoroo would also be interested in the article, as he wishes to know if there was anything noteworthy about Noa Briqualon). Best regards. --LelalMekha 14:58, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

  • I'll take a look. Stay tuned! —Xwing328(Talk) 03:59, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
    • Amazing! Thanks so much. Both of us really appreciate this. I felt bad about asking you for more Insider stuff, so I originally asked the only other Wookieepedian who (according to his collection page) owns the magazine, but he's been out of touch for months. You are fantastic. Really, I mean that. Menkooroo 04:21, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
  • The results are in! But unfortunately there's not much. You could use the article as a source for the actress once being married to Peter (page 51), or a few other films she has been in, but she doesn't actually have an interview in the article, just a short blurb about her and the role she played. Definitely nothing unique about Charal. As for Noa Briqualon, I'm afraid he and the actor playing him are not mentioned even a single time, though there is one picture of the character on page 50. —Xwing328(Talk) 04:27, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
    • Perfect. Thank you again. This obscure source was the only thing holding me back from writing Noa up. Hooray for more Battle for Endor FAs! Menkooroo 04:34, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
    • Like Menk said. At last, I dare say there's nothing else to add into the Charal article. Good news. Thanks again. --LelalMekha 11:32, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

SW Insider 71 and Attichitcuk Edit

71KaiReturntoKashyyykFinal

Hello Xwing. I'm currently xorking on the Attichitcuk article, and I noticed the old Wookiee appears along with his son Chewbacca and the Jedi Knight Kai Justiss on this picture, which was part of the Republic HoloNet News Core Edition 14:10:03 published in Star Wars Insider 71. As you own that particular issue of the Insider, could you let me know what's Itchy's part in this "news content", if any? I originally posted KB request, to no avail. I don't suppose Itchy and Chewie were put on the picture for no reason, but I couldn't find any relevant information anywhere on the Wook, not even in the Kai Justiss article. Thanks in advance. --LelalMekha (talk) 13:54, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

  • I'll take a look tonight. —Xwing328(Talk) 03:51, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
    • I'm afraid it's going to be a (Picture only) appearance. Doesn't mention any Wookiees by name other than Yarua, and doesn't say much about them anyways, other than the planet is trying to stay independent. Hope that helps! —Xwing328(Talk) 04:10, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
      • Thanks. I think I'll just say that Itchy welcomed Justiss on Kashyyyk, based on mere visual evidence. But I'll directly ask Joe Corroney nonetheless. --LelalMekha (talk) 08:29, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

"Star Wars: X-wing" and the Triumph Ceremony Edit

Hello Xwing328. I'm currently trying to FA nom my article on the Royal Award Ceremony, and Corellian Premier suggested checking Star Wars: X-Wing and Star Wars: Rebel Assault to see if that ceremony was not featured. I don't own any of those games, but I think you do. If you have a moment, could please verify it? Thanks in advance. --LelalMekha (talk) 00:36, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

  • I do have the games. Unfortunately, they don't work on my computer anymore. I'd have to build a Windows 95/98 machine to get them running again most likely. Sorry about that! :( —Xwing328(Talk) 18:05, October 1, 2012 (UTC)
    • Never mind. Thank you for answering anyway. ;-) --LelalMekha (talk) 18:07, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

Image request Edit

Hey Xwing, do you still have Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures Volume 10? If so, could I get an image of this clone? An ideal image might be on the penultimate page of the book, where he is being told to report back to base. Thanks for any help you can do.—Jedi Kasra ("Indeed.") 05:20, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

  • Hey Kasra, will this do? —Xwing328(Talk) 05:58, December 20, 2012 (UTC)
    • That's a great one, thanks for your help, Xwing!—Jedi Kasra ("Indeed.") 14:49, December 20, 2012 (UTC)
      • When you are able, if you could also upload an image of the two creatures holding the rockets, or of them being chased by the clone? Thanks in advance.—Jedi Kasra ("Indeed.") 15:25, December 20, 2012 (UTC)
        • I appreciate it, thanks. I can wait.—Jedi Kasra ("Indeed.") 22:34, December 21, 2012 (UTC)
          • Hey Xwing, I was wondering if you could still upload that image of the blue creatures from the Waiting story? Thanks in advance.—Jedi Kasra ("Indeed.") 05:13, January 6, 2013 (UTC)
            • I'll get that to you tonight. Sorry about the delay again. Got back mid-last week and left for a few days again right after that. —Xwing328(Talk) 18:29, January 7, 2013 (UTC)
              • Thanks, Xwing, I appreciate your help.—Jedi Kasra ("Indeed.") 03:22, January 8, 2013 (UTC)
                • I actually like the newer version better, thanks!—Jedi Kasra ("Indeed.") 03:40, January 8, 2013 (UTC)

Making a better "Timeline of media" revisitedEdit

Hi Xwing328, I recently picked up where Morbus Iff left off a while ago on the Timeline of media revamp discussed here, to which you contributed. I'd appreciate your opinion on the near-finished project: User:Tainb'ocu'chulainn/Sandbox Timeline. The forum for the discussion is Forum:SH:Making a better Timeline of media: revisited. Thanks. Tainb'ocu'chulainn (talk) 20:29, February 11, 2013 (UTC)

Please Remake the App TemplateEdit

Hi, I need your help. I need you to please remake the App template on the Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki. If you choose to do this for me than please replace the following things (if I don't put what to replace it with than please leave it as it is):

  • Dramatis personae = Heroes
  • (between dramatis personae and other characters) = Villains
  • Droid models = Projects
  • Organizations and titles = Organizations and teams
  • Sentient species = Species
  • Vehicles and vessels = Vehicles

If you help I will be very thankful. If you don't by tomarrow I'll just ask someone else. --Milomilk was here 17:16, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

  • It sounds like you'd need to copy Template:App to a new Template page, and then Find/Replace in a text editor the various names that you want to switch. You should be able to do that without any trouble. Maybe you can talk to some others about any similar pages that could benefit from a new template and make sure that the section headings would work for them as well. —Xwing328(Talk) 00:35, March 30, 2013 (UTC)

Adventures magazinesEdit

Do you have all the Star Wars Adventures magazines? If so, would you mind scanning them and uploading the covers? MasterFredCommerce Guild(Whatever) 21:52, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

  • No, unfortunately, I don't have many of the magazines. Sorry! Let me know if there's anything else I can help with! —Xwing328(Talk) 16:00, June 13, 2013 (UTC)
    • I just saw that it was you who had uploaded all the existing ones, so I thought maybe you had them. It seems no one does. I'll just have to scan my torn up ones and use those. Bad quality is better than nothing. :P Thanks, though. MasterFredCommerce Guild(Whatever) 04:24, June 15, 2013 (UTC)

Fight for Truth Edit

Wookieecookie
—MJ— War Room has awarded you a Wookiee Cookie!
For showing the oft-ignored Jedi Apprentice books some much-needed love.

Glad to see someone paying attention to these books. :D —MJ— War Room 05:08, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

  • Haha, thanks! They've always been a personal favorite of mine, despite how simple they are. —Xwing328(Talk) 05:11, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

User page Edit

Hello, Xwing. It's been brought to my attention that you currently still use Template:User admin and Template:User inq on your user page to denote positions you formerly held. This presents a technical problem, as these templates continue to list your username under Category:Wookieepedia administrators and Category:Wookieepedia inquisitors, which is nonetheless incorrect and misleading. I wanted to request that you kindly consider removing these userboxes from your userpage or otherwise employ a userbox that uses a manual code without the auto-categorization. Thanks. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 21:10, June 23, 2013 (UTC)

  • Sure thing! Taken care of :) —Xwing328(Talk) 20:57, June 24, 2013 (UTC)


Deletion? Edit

I just wanted to let you know that an article that you put a significant efforts into building is up for deletion. Please consider voting for keeping it. Wookieepedia:Trash_compactor/List_of_foreign_language_translations_of_Star_Wars_titles --Steinninn 00:33, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the heads up. It looks like the vote is going fine, as long as the information is kept in the movies' respective articles and not just outright deleted. —Xwing328(Talk) 16:39, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Template:AppEdit

I have also this template on my Wiki and how can I use the show and hide button for my Wiki. Which codes show I put in the site? --Station7 (talk) 15:59, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

The Ultimate Star Wars Episode I Sticker Book Edit

Hi Xwing328! Since you seem to be among the rare users who own a copy of The Ultimate Star Wars Episode I Sticker Book, could you check something for me? I need to know more about the Mantaris-class amphibious medium transport's appearance in that book. Anything relevant, really. Thanks in advance! --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 23:51, March 14, 2014 (UTC)

Template on another Wikia Edit

Hi

I'm led to believe you created the templates on this amazing Wikia. I've adapted a couple of your templates for my Wikia as they are relevant to what I'm looking for but I'm not that good with advanced templates and am struggling. Would you be able to help me out at all?

If so could you message me on here

Starhopper Edit

Hey, Xwing! Just a heads-up: based on this image from Star Wars Insider's preview of Phasma, I think we can conclude that the starhopper in the book is an HH-87. - Cwedin(talk) 21:20, May 10, 2018 (UTC)

  • Hmm, still seems like conjecture if it isn't really stated, but I haven't seen the full article in question. Tere's also a mention of "starhopper" by the Scyre later in the book, so I feel like a generic class of starship article is warranted linking to the specific model(s) we know about, but that's just my take on it.- —Xwing328(Talk) 22:05, May 10, 2018 (UTC)
    • Whoops, rereading that other mention, it’s probably Vi’s narration and not the Scyre mentioning a starhopper. —Xwing328(Talk) 00:19, May 11, 2018 (UTC)
