With the release of the mmo Star Wars the Old Republic we are using some background information contained here on wookiepedia. We plan to heavily link to this site and would humbly request a link to our site if that is at all possible, any feedback would be appreciated.

  • Hi there, and welcome to Wookieepedia. We're glad you've found the site useful. However, to discuss linking to you, we'll need some more information than that before we just agree. We'll need to know first off, your website. There is absolutely no problem with linking to Wookieepedia—I'll leave it those more knowledgeable than I to state all the terms, but as long as you state where you got the content from, you can even use Wookieepedia content AFAIK. I believe you can also place a link in the List of fansites. If your site shows itself to have enough merit, we could possibly place a link in the "External links" section on the Star Wars: The Old Republic article, but to get a Main Page link would require an official friend status. If you have any more questions, simply reply here or ask me on my talk page. ;-) Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 19:34, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
    • Just one thing to add to what Ataru said. Wookieepedia actually uses the GNU Free Documentation License. This means you can use our content as long as you say where it's from and that the derivative work is also licensed under the GFDL. Green Tentacle (Talk) 19:25, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
