I see there are ton of articles like milk, water, etc. etc. etc. Should we make external links to Wikipedia on those type of articles? For example: {{WP|Milk}}.--Windu223 19:42, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Water and milk both have Star Wars-realted content, so it is necessary.—Darthtyler
    • Yes, in cases where they are the same or similar topics, I think the links are helpful. -- Ozzel 19:45, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
      • Water and some other articles do have alot of star wars in them. Why don't we just delete Blue milk while we're at it?—Darthtyler

Please don't make a vfd. They may have a diffrence.--Windu223 19:49, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

  • I don't think Darthtyler is on the same page here. We're talking about adding Wikipedia links in the "External links" sections, not getting rid of the articles. -- 19:51, 21 May 2007 (UTC) Unsigned comment by Ozzel (talk • contribs).
  • This is generally the entire purpose of having external links sections, for similar things in the real world or for more information from another source. I don't think anyone will have any problem with you putting links to something with the exact same name in the SW universe to the article about that thing in ours. (See WP:BOLD).

So here is a list of articles that we can put a link to wikipedia on. Oh, and if you see an article that is in the real world please add it to the list. If you see and articles on this page with (linked) next to it means it already has a wikipedia link.--Windu223 23:22, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

  • It's much simpler to just link it when you see it, instead of listing it here and making somebody else have to link it later. —Xwing328(Talk) 17:55, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
