Dunno if we have a policy on this, but how are we supposed to order items in the "Appearances" section that are versions of the same story (basically, if there is a film, a novel, a comic and or game, and we have more than one of these listed)? Do we, in this case, go by publication date, or try and work out a chronological order? For example, in the case of Revenge of the Sith, it's common to have the film listed first, although technically, the novel "begins" prior to it, as Obi-Wan and Anakin are seen arriving from hyperspace. For others, though, e.g., A New Hope, it might be a bit less clear. Thoughts? - \\Captain Kwenn// Ahoy! 23:43, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

  • I say we always put the films first, then follow publication date. jSarek 01:00, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
    • But all three prequel novels begin before the films; in the case of TPM and AotC, sometimes they take place days or months before. Since they start at an earlier date, they should be placed before - \\Captain Kwenn// Ahoy! 10:15, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
      • I kind of agree with you here, partly because the novels are generally the actual first appearance. We recently decided to tag items from the novels with {{1st}} instead of the movies, because the novels are chronologically first and real-world-published first. —Xwing328(Talk) 18:45, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
