I've noticed that many of the more detailed articles have sources referenced for every single paragraph, although the vast majority of articles don't. Is this something which ideally would be the case for all of them? For example, the last article I edited was Carth Onasi. Should that one be completely referenced? What about articles for which there is only one source? Sorry if this is a newbie question, but I couldn't find any general rules or criteria for this.

  • Yes, it just happened recently, so only a very small amount of articles are fully sourced. The discussion is here if you want to take a look at what was decided. For articles with only one source, I think it was generally agreed that no sourcing was really needed. Although, you may want to talk with others about that, and look over Bastila Shan and Brenn Tantor which deal with the problem in a different way. Cull Tremayne 10:09, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
    • Sikon just cooked us up a Wookieepedia:Attribution page and FAQ, too. jSarek 10:49, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
      • They're actually copied from Wikipedia, with some alterations - for example, I removed bits about academic research and biographies of living people and added SW-specific examples. - Sikon 15:52, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
        • Okay, thanks a lot. If I may make a suggestion, perhaps the Attribution page could be linked to somewhere in the Layout Guide and/or Manual of Style? Sarendipity (Talk to me) 20:52, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
