Per the discussion started here, using the precedent of the Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, Palpatine/Darth Sidious and Dooku/Darth Tyranus article names, since we now know that Darth Bane's name, before taking the Sith title, was Dessel, shouldn't the Darth Bane article be moved to Dessel? - JMAS 20:16, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

  • I love it when policy I resent backfire into the faces of its creators. DarthMRN 21:03, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
    • There is no policy, as far as I know, it's whatever the community feels would fit that character best. Darth Bane fits him best. Kreia fits Traya best. Revan fits Darth Revan best. Palpatine fits Sidious best. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbolTalk 21:08, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
      • In response to the original post: All of those characters either went by for most of their story/real-world existence, or died as, the name they're currently under. Bane did neither; he's known as Darth Bane most often, in-universe and out, and there's no reason to think he changed back. - Lord Hydronium 21:10, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
        • Anakin took on the name of Darth Vader, but later rejected the name and died as Anakin Skywalker. Palpatine only used the name of Darth Sidious as an alias. Same with Tyranus. However, Darth Bane abandoned the name of Dessel after entering the Sith Academy and never looked back. Policy is to use the last name -- name, not alias or nickname or contraction of a name, like with Thrawn -- that a person used. The article complies with policy. Havac 21:13, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
          • Havac, that was beautiful. Chack Jadson 21:16, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
            • For your information, there is no policy on this. There is, however, a consensus track that serves as precedent. --ATATatarismall.png 21:24, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
              • why should darth bane's article be named dessel when his REAl name that he went by till the day he died was DARTH BANE????????????-user:Darththeexile
  • It shouldn't, but the point JMAS was making is that Dessel was his real name. {{SUBST:User:Jasca Ducato/Sig}} 15:18, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
