Now that we have two article types, Canon and Legends, it's time to reorganize Wookieepedia:Layout Guide#Sources into a more readable section. If you haven't noticed, that section is an unorganized and directionless pile of information that can be very difficult to wade through when you're trying to find a specific rule point. Not only is some of the information out of date, but it needs to be divided into Canon and Legends sections to make things as least confusing as possible.
I've taken the time to write up a draft for a new WP:LG#Sources section that is easier to read and navigate. It clears up the error of our incorrect formatting and alphabetizing of Original Databank entries. Also, at the last Mofference, Corellian Premier raised a concern about our new system for listing Star Wars Insider articles (specifically, what to do when an Insider article applies to both Canon and Legends articles), and we basically agreed to cross that bridge when we come to it. Well, Insider 150 already has at least one article of this nature, so I've included an amendment to that system to address this scenario.
For ease of reading, everything in the proposal highlighted in green represents new policy; everything else is existing policy already covered in WP:LG#Sources. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 00:49, July 30, 2014 (UTC)
Is there a master source of Source templates? If so should that be linked to the layout guide to alert users of proper source templates? If not should one be created? --praguepride(Talk) 02:30, August 2, 2014 (UTC)
