Forums > Senate Hall archive > Question on Types of Articles

I am wondering... What ratio of Wookieepedia's articles are about characters? I am beginning to suspect that articles on events are a minority. Please prove this suspicion wrong. I want it to be wrong. Karohalva 18:58, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

  • There are far more articles on planets and individuals than events. What's so great about events, anyway? --Imp 19:10, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
    • Anything that happens is an event. Battles, treaties, power failures, ect. History and the like. Karohalva 20:18, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
      • It's always easier to write articles about concrete things like people and planets than it is to write about discrete events. They're also a lot more likely to be named, which makes article creation easier. jSarek 22:38, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
        • Here's a thought experiment. One event can have the participation of one thousand individuals. If that was all canon, we would have a ratio of 1:1000. -- Riffsyphon1024 05:53, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
          • Of course, the door swings both ways; one individual can participate in thousands of events. Still, writing articles about discrete things like people and planets and critters and starships is easier and less prone to wankage than articles about events. jSarek 08:35, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
            • The door may swing both ways, but it is far more likely to swing towards one event and many people rather than one person and many events. Isn't Luke Skywalker already taken? -- Riffsyphon1024 08:42, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
