A number of gaming magazines have published Star Wars articles listed on Wookieepedia as 'ambiguously canon.' However, TheForce.net lists many of these publications' Star Wars articles as unofficial. Apparently, these magazines published unlicensed Star Wars material which thus constitute fanon or fanfiction. Shouldn't they be removed from Wookieepedia?
There is some debate as to the status of these articles, hence them being listed as "ambiguously canon." At the very least, several of them were used as source material for The Essential Atlas, giving at least their geographical details canonical standing. jSarek (talk) 04:07, November 9, 2013 (UTC)
Interesting. Do you know which publications' articles were used for the Atlas? Rather than their canon level, I'm wondering if they are licensed at all; according to TheForce.net, several magazines published content unapproved by LucasFilm.
No such list exists yet, that I'm aware of, though Fry did have specific criteria: he and Lucasfilm "agreed to treat as canon the planets/star systems introduced by authors who had done licensed Star Wars work elsewhere." This whole situation was discussed in more detail in Forum:CT Archive/Casus Belli, though it seems nothing ever developed from that discussion. jSarek (talk) 02:01, November 10, 2013 (UTC)
