Sannse says that the Star Wars fanon wiki needs someone trustworthy and capable as an admin due to the increased amount of vandalism. Is anyone interested? - Sikon [Talk] 08:02, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Is there a way to transwiki-move our fanon articles to the SW fanon wiki? That'd be a neat trick. --SparqMan 15:06, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I'd volunteer, but after looking it over I don't think I could handle it. Kuralyov 18:09, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
  • What kind of vandalism are you talking about? --Sompeetalay 18:12, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Any kind: page move, image, blanking, random text insertion/replacing, etc. RMF 18:16, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
      • Don't tell me we're going to have to ban people cor adding canon informtaion to it are we? Jasca Ducato 18:21, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
        • Presumably not, perhaps just add a link here to their talk page. RMF 18:38, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
          • Personally I don't understand the use of a SW fanon wiki. Aren't we supposed to eradicate and ban fanon from established 'SW'-lore?--Sompeetalay 20:31, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
            • I saw that site. It is a disgrace to call that heap of junk a "Wiki" until order is maintained. And I beleive to ensure progress on that project to go more smoothly we should have something that makes itself heard a bit more than in the Senate Hall. Perhaps we could take action by advertising the fanon wiki at the bottom or corner of the main page or something, and create a Help Wanted link for hiring administrators. This way all the users of the Wookiepedia could see the new construction site. We could also mail some admin nominees who aren't official administrators on this site, and have been honest by their history on this site, and ask if they could take the job. In the meantime, I'll do some work to clean up the fanon wiki in the time when I don't have anything to do here. That site could be fun without the vandalism.C3PO the Dragon Slayer 20:53, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
              • I have to agree, the whole fanon-Wiki seems pretty inane. Cutch 22:32, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
            • I don't mind this Star Wars Fanon wiki, because although it is full of fanon, at least the site identifies it as fanon, unlike SuperShadow and Red 6. Authors occasionally like to adopt fanon, see List of fanon elements in continuity. Fanon is bad for Wookieepedia, but otherwise not so bad in my opinion. --Azizlight 23:44, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
              • Agreed. SWFanon could be a fun exercise in collaborative fanfic, for those who wish to participate. Unfortunately, it's currently a mess, for a variety of reasons....—Silly Dan (talk) 23:49, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
                • Doubly agreed. However, the idea of a free-for-all for imagination is kind of constricting. For example, how would you tell (link to SWfanon page triggers spam filter: —Silly Dan (talk) 23:22, 19 November 2006 (UTC)) to clean up his act? Technically, since he's the one who wrote the fanon, he has creative authority over it. Perhaps he intends to create a universe with rampant spelling and grammar mistakes. There should at least be some basic formatting and styles rules enforced. --Thetoastman 02:29, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
            • One of its uses is that it's a great place to send persistent but otherwise well-meaning fanon posters. jSarek
  • This wiki is one that I have posted on and it's a way for the fans to get their stories out. Recently, there was a hacker/vandal who issued every page to show lewd messages and the like. They need some help and order. NKSCF
  • Yep, that's right. Better to place all the fanon on a special site. That way it won't be able to appear over here. --Sompeetalay 06:28, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I always questioned: what's the point? It's like Uncyclopedia Part II. -- Riffsyphon1024 09:58, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Yeah, but then it's very clearly that the information found over there is as useless as it can be.--Sompeetalay 15:09, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Note: the last few comments, which I've deleted, were left by trolls and impostors, or were responses to trolls and impostors.Silly Dan (talk) 23:22, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
