A great idea: [1]. --SparqMan 15:58, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Ooh yes, i've been thinking about doing something like this for a while. Let's do it! --Azizlight 16:11, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
    • Yes, this would be excellent. -- Ozzel 20:01, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Their's benefits from a very appropriate image. What would work for us? --SparqMan 21:02, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I thinking maybe something with George behind the scenes. Maybe one of these? 1 2 -- Ozzel 22:05, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

The one with Threepio is better because it shows him interacting with a "real" character. --SparqMan 14:44, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I concur. AdamwankenobiTalk to me! My home. 15:20, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
    • Yes, me too. Snoop 15:28, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
      • I've seen another where George is talking with Mark Hamill in the desert during Ep.IV -it's black & white, though. Tocneppil 19:47, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
        • Here. -- Ozzel 19:57, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
          • That's the one.Tocneppil 20:56, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
            • I think the threepio one would be great! --Xwing328(Talk) 05:08, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Bringing this back up...would somebody like to make this template? -- Ozzel 05:42, 19 August 2006 (UTC)


  • Well, I made a start at it, but if we take this approach the template will not be compatible with the {{eras}} template which is used to mark 'Featured' and 'Good 'articles… –SentryTalk 08:01, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Alright, the test template is at: User:Sentry/Template:realworld. Feel free to modify it however you wish… –SentryTalk 02:31, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
    • Correction: we don't have a single Good article that is OOU, and only two FA's, which isn't very many anyway, so I didn't think it was worth mentioning in the first place, because... okay, so I can't bullcrap my way out of it. :-P I stand corrected! -- Ozzel 03:17, 20 August 2006 (UTC)


Why don't we make a "real world era" and plug it in like any other era, including the "featured era"? - Sikon (Vacation) 11:06, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Now that is a good idea. It would fit better into the design of our wiki and I really hated simply aping Memory Alpha like that... –SentryTalk 20:16, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
  • I like that. It'll readily fit in. Question though, would IU era tags be used with the OOU tag to denote applicable content? -Finlayson 18:49, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
    • No, I think that real-world articles should only have this era (and possibly the featured star). - Sikon (Vacation) 18:54, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Alright, the template has been placed in every realworld article except for those in the following categories:

My hand is tired from repeatedly pressing CTRL-V, so I will leave articles in those categories for other users. Just copy and paste the following code into the top of the article: {{eras|real}}. –SentryTalk 23:59, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

The real world tag applies to all media material (comics, short stories, etc), right? -Finlayson 15:48, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

  • It applies to every article written from the real world perspective. So yes, you are correct.–SentryTalk 22:33, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Are the Essential Chronologies included? cause i think i heard somewhere that it is written from an in-universe prespective Nick sponge 15:45, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

  • The books are written in-universe, but our articles are not. So yes, those need the real-world tag as well. -- Ozzel 20:06, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
