Hello to everybody from Russian Wookieepedia. Firstly I want to apologize for my probably bad English because that's not my native language so I can feel some difficulty to use it.
The problem is your rush to create so many articles as you can. We users of Russian Wookieepedia are very surprised for your creation of articles for example about some guy which almost has no information but has articles with only few sentences. I mean what is usage of that pseudo-articles? Especially the problem is about so-called "Unidentified\Unknowns". I agree that some of them are noticeable and necessary, for example that one, but what about this? Or this? Or that guy? Who cares about someone that attended in only one scene and was cut by Meetra Surik in the beginning of several-second battle? Who cares about him? No, I mean really, who? What's the point of creation of thousands and thousands of pseudo-articles in fact about background? And there are hundreds, maybe thousands of so-called "articles" like this in your Wookieepedia. I really don't get the point about that all.
Maybe I didn't get anything but I think that articles must be only about important and noticeable things. Thanks for your attention.—Unsigned comment byMortemus (talk • contribs).
Good day Mortemus. While perhaps in some instances we may go a bit overboard with creating articles on absolutely everything, ultimately our goal is to have complete articles for any and all "notable" topics. What one user finds useless, another may find interesting. When we come across an article that is arguably not at all notable. we have our Trash compactor, where users can nominate articles for deletion with a vote and/or discussion regarding the article in question.

To use your example of Unidentified Separatist, it's considered notable because it was mentioned, even if not by name, by an official source stating it wasn't the same as another character. Also, if somebody were to see this scene and want to research each individual member of the table, this article would at least assure them that the character exists, and that there isn't much more information on them, which is better than not having any article and the reader just assuming we forgot about them. We tend to err on the side of inclusiveness because it's better to have unnecessary articles that no one cares about than to be missing necessary articles that someone may take interest in. I hope that helps clear up why we do what we do. Also, your English is pretty easy to understand, so no worries there. :) MasterFred(Whatever) 22:19, March 12, 2017 (UTC)
