  • I have been noticing a trend recently in that some users have been pushing for greater expansion of the major characters of the movies- Examples include Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, even Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Padme Naberrie. On a smaller, but still important level, there is also Darth Maul, Chewbacca, Wedge Antilles, Lando Calrissian, Jabba the Hutt, and so on. What is the general policy/consensus on details on major characters' articles? Do we keep them somewhat succinct, or do we follow a policy of greater expansion and detail, something along the depth and detail of the Palpatine article? (Thanks to User:Erik Pflueger for giving us an example of how large an article really can be. I'm all for expanding the articles, but I wanted to get the community's opinion.

    • I think we should strive to make any article as detailed as Palpatine. IMHO, if there is any information on a character, no matter their importance, we should include as many details as possible. :) Adamwankenobi 21:27, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
    • I've been adding info to Leia's article all day. Jaina SoloGoddess StuffJbig3 21:28, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
  • I agree with Adamwankenobi. In a print medium, we would naturally be constrained to limit the information we present. In this format, we do not have such constraints, and are free to include as much information as possible. I feel this is our greatest asset, and I suggest we use it. We would be remiss as editors not to. - Angel Blue 451 21:33, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
    • I've tried my best with Jabba the Hutt. or his technical name, Jabba Desilijic Tiure. No one can deny that. It's my bay and it's grown into a teenager. Palpatine reached 60 a long time ago. It's nowhere close to Palpatine's, but better than it was before I arrived. I'm diss apointed no one disded to add "Some" pics.,and stuff. The thing that is my stapel on that article is the dealing with scum section. I added EVERYTTHING from that book. I don't like who blane people get with Luke and leia and Boba Fett on their encounters with the Hutt. I had to go and ad a couple paragraphs to them. EX:
  • Leia killed jabba with the chain that held her.
  • Leia hopped over Jabba's back and stratle dthe chain around his waterfall of flab. Tugging with all her might, Jabba's life came to an and, ironicly, with the same chain that held leia.

It's getting there. Though the Jabba article is very delecate, put in a wrong picture, a couple more may be cut in the prossess ('caugh' SFH 'caughcaugh' Redemption 'caugh'). I've learned that We should only add what contributes to the article. Still no Bounty Hunter game pics. though. --Jabbathehuttgartogg Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF 20:18, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Nice job on the article, but it has WAAAAAAAAY too many images. You might want to cut out all but the most important ones. Adamwankenobi 00:50, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Reminder: this is about all the main characters in general. Discussing Jabba is great, but let's not forget others whose articles are sadly only about as long as Jabba's despite having been in at least twice as many works.

    • What's that suppost to mean, no offense. But Who else, besides the basics, have not got there do? Jabba's article is as long as I can go. Unless I find some Jabba appearences I don't have, I'm almost done. Lando needs to be expanded though in my opinion, but other than that everyone else is good. Palpatine is HELL to edit. you have to scroll down and down and down, very hecktick, then you loose your spot. That's how all of them should be. I'd like to see Jabba and Landos articles be as hecktic to edit as Han Solo, Leia, Luke, and Anakin. --Jabbathehuttgartogg Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF 22:45, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
      • Well, pretty much all the major characters need work. Jabba is not area of expertise, so I can't say how much stuff he's in, but probably not as much as say- Wedge Antilles or even Qui-Gon Jinn. Palpatine is sooo massive thanks to a very dedicated User:Erik Pflueger who knows just about anything about Palps. I personally am going to go around and work on all the major characters with the knowledge I have . . . one at a time. I'm starting with Luke. Once he's finished, I'll move on. I've done what I can with Wedge already. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 01:43, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
    • I've done all I can with Leia, I might move on to Han. He's missing alot of EU information. Jaina SoloGoddess StuffJbig3 01:45, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Sure, Just, when work'n on Jabbers, notify me with any concerns. --Jabbathehuttgartogg Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF 01:46, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
      • I'll cast an eye over Mr. Solo as well, but it wasn't that bad if I remember right. Not as bad as Luke was. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 01:46, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
        • Speaking of major characters, there's a certain little blue astromech who's up for recommendation as a 'Featured Article' but whose entry has barely any of his EU appearances in it.Tocneppil 03:14, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
    • R2-D2, hmm I'll take a look at it. Jaina SoloGoddess StuffJbig3 03:18, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
