Anyways, I was going through some of my RPG books, and pulling out all the stuff related to the 5-class law systems used in Star Wars. I think we could make a neat article out of it, and I'd like to see if anyone knows where we can find more or create stuff (or if this article is already out there). I know it's semi-canonical, since there's references to Class Five and Class One infractions in the New Essential Guide to droids. I was thinking we could flesh out the government information section perhaps.... Here are my notes so far

Class- Examples Penalty: one or more of the items on this list

  • Class 5- Disturbing the peace, public intoxication, noinjurous traffic violation
  • Class 4- Possession of controlled substance, injurious traffic violation, operating a business without a license, operating a vehicle without a license, operating a starship without a license, assault (without a deadly weapon)

Sorry about the mess

  • Actually I don't know. But creating a new article about laws seems to be the smartest thing to do. If you need any help, let me know. Lorth Needa 08:13, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Put the laws in the articles of thier respective governments.--Killik 23:21, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Each law should have its own article and be placed in Category:Laws. Kuralyov 23:43, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
    • Im willing to undertake this task. I just need suggestions on what to call these articles. Lonnyd 08:08, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Holy Class Five, Lonnyd. That is all. ;) -- Riffsyphon1024 08:13, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
    • I was thinking about possibly just cleaning it up (can anyone help with the format? I can't figure out how to get the penalty to line up with the class of crime) and putting it all in one article (Crime classification? Anyone got an in-universe title?). These seem to be more along the lines of examples than comprehensive, it feels a little strange to be putting them all into their own articles. That's my take on it anyways. --LightWarden 13:16, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
