Hey, everyone. I'd like to use this article as a source for the Saurin article:

I'd like to list it with a template in the "Sources" list of that page, but the template I used above (the only one I know of) does not include a field to link to a Wookieepedia article about the source. I think "Cantina Roll-Call" is a great source of BTS information, so it really should have a page here; I just want to try to make it display all nice and pretty too as it does above. Is there another template I'm missing? Thanks! ~ SavageBob 01:01, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Well, this is by nature external link, not a source. And we do not have pages about articles. MauserComlink 09:21, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Yep, just put it in the sources as a link. QuiGonJinnThere's always a bigger fish. 09:26, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
    • Is there a reason we don't have articles on articles? And I disagree that "by nature" this is an external link; the article contains valuable behind the scenes information that can be used to make the article better. ~ SavageBob 09:44, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
      • Perhaps some articles should have articles, such as ones with Bts info, but I agree that this is definitely an external link. —Lucius malfoy7 TalkReference 13:52, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
        • If you aks me, I say that articles from Gamer, Insider, other magazines and do not deserve to have articles about them here as well. MauserComlink 13:59, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
          • Well, I can understand Mauser's stance, but the site's stance seems to be that if an article has information that is used to source an article, it is by definition a source. So I don't follow Lucius's reasoning. ~ SavageBob 14:36, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
            • Now that I've seen your viewpoint, Mauser, I agree that every little article should not have its own article here. Talk about messy. However, we should have appearances sections for these magazines (and a broad appearances section in our articles on Internet articles, such as "Star".) We should also have a Bts section or at least notes for these things in case a random factoid be brought up or needed for an article. —Lucius malfoy7 TalkReference 21:08, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
