Old Republic IconEdit

Why was the Old Republic icon reverted? The source was solid, it appears on the Crucible

  • Crucible is not a canon book, so therefore it doesn't apply to the canonical page about the Galactic Republic. Here is the page that contains non-canon information about the Republic from the Expanded Universe. Hope that clears things up! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:45, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
    • Crucible is not a book at all. It's the Jedi training cruiser from the Clone wars series. The Logo can clearly be seen in indoor scenes such as in A Test of Strength Gurluas (talk) 22:47, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
      • It's more likely what you saw was the logo of the Jedi Order. I'd have to watch the episode to be sure, though. Either way, there's likely nothing tying it to being a logo of the Galactic Republic, so it would be an assumption on our part to label it as such without any clear canonical information. (p.s. Crucible is also the name of a novel, so I assumed you were referring to that. Sorry about that.) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:49, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
        • It's clearly the Old Republic logo, I.E the one that appears in TOR. I also included a picture earlier, but I was unable to make it a link since it's from photobucket. And yeah sorry for the confusion. Gurluas (talk) 22:51, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
          • Ah, I see your image now. Either way, while it's clearly the logo from The Old Republic, there's nothing in canon saying it is a logo for the Galactic Republic. To assume it's a Republic logo would be to use information from The Old Republic, which is not canon. Therefore, we can't make that assumption. Right now, all we know is that it's a logo that appeared on the Crucible. Good find, though. I never noticed that before. It could be a good easter egg to mention on the A Test of Strength page. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:55, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
            • Hm when you put it that way.. It would certainly be possible though as Huyang states he'd lived on the ship for a Thousand years. And in the new Canon the Republic was founded roughly a thousand years ago. It does merit further consideration and research. Gurluas (talk) 23:05, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
              • Indeed, it's certainly possible, but until we know for sure we'll need to leave it out. Thanks for understanding! If you ever find any conclusive information, feel free to post it here. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:11, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

(reset indent) So as it turns out, you are correct. According to StarWars.com, that logo is indeed the logo of the Old Republic, which in canon is (thus far) a separate entity from the Galactic Republic. I am currently creating a page for the Old Republic and would like to add the image you linked to. Did you take that screenshot from A Test of Strength? I'd like to upload it to Wookieepedia but want to know where it came from. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:50, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

The Symbol of the Old Republic.

  • That is wonderful news! And no I did not take but I'm pretty sure it comes from that episode, the episode after that hardly features the ship. I think you should use the symbol in the Legends page, as it's basically a black inked version of the icon, and it will match the Galactic Republic and Galactic Empire icons. Gurluas (talk) 15:08, September 19, 2014 (UTC)
    • Darth Culator has offered to make a customized red version, since he made the image you linked to (the image is a trace of the symbol from The Old Republic). Once that's done, I'll add it into the Old Republic page. That way, the red version is more accurately reflective of the canonical appearance. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:06, September 19, 2014 (UTC)
      • Great, yeah that was done with the Rebel Alliance logo ^^ Can't this one just be cut out though? http://cdnvideo.dolimg.com/cdn_assets/c6bcd2c3e3027fbff0197873e65f5b3b7ecfb472.jpg
        • That image is pretty low quality. The trace is now live on the Old Republic page. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:19, September 19, 2014 (UTC)
          • It looks great, you did well ^^ Although I think we should add some sort of link to the Old Republic from here. Perhaps one of those "This article is about the government known as the Galactic Republic. You may be looking for the Old Republic, which was the government existing prior to the Galactic Republic."
