We all know how in wikipedia, most Star Wars articles start with "In the fictional Star Wars Universe, this fictional character did this fictional thing in this fictional situation"- okay, a little overexaggerated, but we all know it. I don't believe I'm the only one which this annoys, but in wookiepedia the general idea is that we don't need all of this 'fictional' crap. That is why I feel that, on the front page, instead of the the title, "Real-World Categories" being as it is, I think it should be something different, such as "Merchandise", "Collectibles" or "Earth Categories"- not saying those titles exactly, but around that ball-park. Real-world slightly resembles wikipedia and it's 'fictional Star Wars universe' crap. "Real-World Categories" does get the idea across well and is a useful title, but perhaps something less, well, intimidating. Darth Maddolis 11:40, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

  • We must make it clear somehow which categories are in- and out-of-universe. Merchandising, for example, can refer to a Rodian advertising his products and it can also refer to George Lucas making collectibles to popularize Star Wars even further.

    • Exactly. Since our articles *lack* any clear disclaimer that they're fictional, it's all the more important that we mark the stuff from the real world as being real world. jSarek 12:09, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
