What...? Edit

What is needed for this article to be cleaned up?- (Dtlwarrior 21:35, 7 March 2009 (UTC))

I think this says a lot for this site. You'd expect a wiki that caters entirely for Star Wars to have articles about not just "essential" but fundamental concepts like the Jedi to be correctly covered. But no, the article on the Jedi is flagged? lmao. I'd expect flags on more obscure stuff, even some essential stuff, but the Jedi? Like OMG! Come on guys, remove the flag and just accept that this site is never going to aspire to the level you seem to be expecting.62.49.92.201 00:14, September 24, 2010 (UTC)
Agreed, the flag on this article makes the entire wiki seem like a complete joke. If the article on perhaps the MOST IMPORTANT subject in Star Wars is not correctly documented then this site (Which is supposed to be about Star Wars) is completely pointless. Even if the article is not correctly sourced I would suggest removing the tag from this article anyway, otherwise it reduces the whole site to a farce.109.148.9.194 20:32, August 24, 2012 (UTC)
    • Things are always changing in Star Wars, new info with each comic and novel and video game. I respect the fact that you wanna help but please do not bring up old threads. Matt Seay (talk) 20:41, August 24, 2012 (UTC)
Don't bring up old threads? The original comment was dated March 2009, the last comment August 2012. The article has been tagged for longer than that, I know because I visit this site frequently. The thread is still valid as the article is STILL TAGGED. So basically in over 3 years an essential Star Wars subject has been incorrectly covered in this Wiki. Let's face it, it's never going to be correctly covered is it? You need to lower your standards or continue to be an online joke.109.148.188.139 20:45, September 4, 2012 (UTC)
        • If you've read the entire article and still strongly believe that, then you're welcome to remove the tag. No need for a discussion here. Winterz (talk) 21:53, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Jedi biased articles Edit

How come all the articles that have to do with the Jedi are biased, always making the jedi out to be the "good guys" because they are obviously not just look at what they did to the Jensaarai; Nejaa Halcyon, Ylenic It'kla, and Desertwind are clearly sent on mission to murder the Jensaarai simple because the Jedi "feel" that the Jensaarai are evil.So all i am saying is wookepedia needs to stop having article that are biased.--Bull36 23:04, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

  • The Jedi are made out to be "good guys" because they are the good guys. If you watch the movies, you'll notice that the Jedi are the "good guys" and protagonists of the movies. George Lucas created the Jedi as heroes and protagonists, and most canon sources depict them as heroes and protagonists. Canonically, the Jedi are the heroic forces of good. 96.240.222.190 03:30, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Look if you read the books the Jedi are always killing any one they consider to be of the dark side like the Jensaarai that's evil if ask me to kill people because they believe different then you.And in the Old Jedi order the Jedi were trained to be nothing more than brained wash monks and in the New Jedi order the Jedi turned into a bunch of jackasses look at character like Jaina Solo,and Zekk.You can't look at a organization and say they are good or bad based on the majority not every one in the empire was evil and not every Jedi was good you need to look deeper then face value; that goes for real life too.--Bull36 14:42, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
    • That's your opinion. But it's a fact in Star Wars that the Jedi are the main heroes and protagonists, and that the Jedi serve the light side. Light side=good side. The Jedi serve the good side. Your "not every Jedi was good" comment is contradictory because the way the Force and morality works in Star Wars is that the Jedi use the light, or good side of the force. A Jedi who isn't "good" isn't a "Jedi" anymore. A bad Jedi is either a "Dark Jedi" or a "Sith", but not a "Jedi". The simple fact is, George Lucas created the Jedi as the good guys, so they are the good guys. 72.79.208.93 15:36, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  • George Lucas has nothing to do with the books he just gets the money, and the Jedi themselves say the light side is good.And if you ask me i agree with Troy Denning(interview in the book Inferno) when he said Yoda(Empire strikes back) who was talking about the light side and dark side in Luke he is referring to the light and darkness in him not the force,and no before you ask I do not support the Sith I think the star wars galaxy would be better off without both extremes.--Bull36 19:49, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  • When i I say the Jedi or not good i mean the society and the morals of the Jedi as a whole,taking babes from there parents(many times by force),then brain washing them from a young age is something i consider corrupt and evil. Just read there motto
There is no emotion; there is peace.
There is no ignorance; there is knowledge. 
There is no passion; there is serenity. 
There is no chaos; there is harmony. 
There is no death; there is the Force.

Sounds like a bunch of brain washed Communist to me buddy.--Bull36 19:54, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

    • Again, that is your opinion. An opinion not supported by canon, which depicts the Jedi as noble, heroic protagonists. Either way, this is not the place to discuss your anti-Jedi bias. Talk pages are not for discussing opinions or for general discussion. 72.79.208.93 20:32, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 72.79.208.93 why don't you get a profile before you start saying anything.--Bull36 00:33, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Oh that opinion is supported by canon it is said by Boba Fett and admiral Daala in the book Revelation,so get your facts straight before you start something and look I am not trying to be mean to you are anything.--Bull36 00:50, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Administrator warning: Everyone drops this conversation now. Bull36, if you have specific parts of articles that you feel violate Wookieepedia's Neutral Point of View policy, please bring them up on the talk pages of those articles. A general complaint about "Jedi bias" without any examples isn't particularly useful, but Wookieepedia is aimed to be neutral in its coverage of all subjects, whatever their portrayal is out of universe. - Lord Hydronium 00:57, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
    • I dropped this discussion with my last message, where I pointed out that this isn't the place to discuss opinions. Though I would like to point out that Bull36's contention that the Jedi are "corrupt and evil" and "a bunch of brain washed Communists" are most certainly not neutral views, and are not appropiate here. But that's all I have to say. 72.79.208.93 01:29, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

actually there were dark jedi, but i don't think that classifys them as jedi's though, because they have fallen to the dark side of the force. oops sorry didnt notice the administrator warning tell now --Dr.Pepper's Krayt Dragon 04:04, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

ADMINISTRATOR WARNING???? HAHAHAHA What ya gonna do if we don't? Force choke us? When this site reaches the level of quality that would validate your ego, maybe it wouldn't be so much of a joke as it currently is. You're like a man in one bedroom apartment making out your home is a castle. This site is fun to browse but is spoiled by the (given the subject) pedantic article and source flags all over it. The quality and neutrality you attempt to achieve is frankly not attainable, given the time this site has been online and the inability to rectify the article quality, this is obvious. I would suggest you drop the ridiculous standards that you will never attain, remove the flags and make it fun to read without [source?] and ugly article flags on almost every page. In other words, GET REAL.81.129.5.246 13:54, October 25, 2011 (UTC)
There is no need to resurrect a conversation from 2009. If there's a problem with the article, please start a new section. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 14:15, October 25, 2011 (UTC)

I Find It Funny ...Edit

... that an organization made up of only thousands of individuals centered on a single planet could ever be capable of keeping the peace in an entire galaxy, let alone have a major part in a Clone War. 64.180.93.200 01:12, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Jedi weren't centered on a single planet, they were spread out across the galaxy, constantly moving from one mission/assignment to another, plus they had bases/outposts all over the galaxy (dantooine, almas, taris, ossus and others). 96.240.222.190 03:21, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
I thought that, according to the EU, the Jedi abandoned most of their bases/outposts after the Ruusan Reformation, leaving Jedi to live/train on Coruscant only. If that's so, then they wouldn't be very numerous, and pretty ineffective as a galactic police force. It would be like the NYPD trying to patrol the entire planet; it simply wouldn't work. 64.180.93.200 19:06, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  • The fact is they don't alone bring peace to the galaxy it was down to the normal people in most cases,and I find it funny when people think only clones and Jedi were fighting in the clone wars because planets had there own militia and do really think when a plant was being attacked they just sat on they buts and waited for the Jedi?--Bull36 14:57, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  • It actually makes more sense for them to only have one major training facility and command centre (ie: the Jedi Temple on Coruscant) as it ensures a set standard of training is filtered down through the ranks. Communication over long distances is obviously not a problem due to the holonet, so established Jedi who had completed their training or were out on assignments would not necessarily be out of contact with the council. If you have don't have a central training centre you risk abnormalities and conflicts of policy, which is possibly why they restructured the Order this way after the Ruusan Reformation; the periods before this time were very chaotic with Jedi falling to the dark side a far too common occurrance. Best to bring training 'in-house' to ensure everyone is on the same page of the training manual. IMO, of course. ;-) — beeurd talk 19:13, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
I personally think the whole keep-Jedi-on-Coruscant-only-to-keep-students-from-turning-to-the-dark-side thing kind of stupid, but I digress ... The point is such a restriction places the Jedi at a disadvanage when it comes down to a war. A 100 thousand on a single planet can't make much of a contribution in a war that span a galaxy and invlving trillions of individuals. 64.180.93.200 19:22, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
I didn't mean that to be the sole reason. And remember that they weren't supposed to be soldiers fighting a war. — beeurd talk 19:26, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, yes they weren't. Still, they did fight in a war. Even before that they were serving as an intergalactic police force; their lack of numbers would have put them at a disadvantage doing even that. 64.180.93.200 19:34, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Please read the notice at the top of this page: "This space is used for discussion relating to changes to the article, not for a discussion about the topic in question."

This discussion has no relevance to the article itself, and therefore is not appropiate. Talk pages aren't forums. If you want to discuss this somewhere, take it to an actual forum, such as the forums at TheForce.net or Starwars.com. 72.79.208.93 20:38, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

You know, I find it even more funny that on the sith page it speaks of thier philosophy and that their belief that emotions such as hate, fear and anger aren't just their greatest assets but their downfall yet on the Jedi page it seems you have not mentioned how arrogant they (and I mean virtually all of them) tended to act and how dogmatic they were. Hasn't anyone noticed it? The majority of them behaved as if their way was the right and they did so without question, never excepting any other way but their own. 86.145.13.146 20:14, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

"Trust your feelings" Edit

  • I don't get why jedi are always "following their feelings"? It is in with the code, seeing as that deals with emotion I think it's arguable subject whther it makes sense or not--71.93.38.34 15:50, 2 July 2009 (UTC) anoymous
  • Jedi were not taught to suppress their emotions like a Vulcan, they were taught to keep their most powerful emotions (love, hate, anger) in check and to not let them consume them. OLIOSTER (talk) Imperial Emblem 15:51, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
  • As explained in Shatterpoint, Jedi are trained from an early age to actually replace base emotions—the ones that flow naturally, such as anger and hate—with ones of selflessness and sacrifice, which are highly unnatural feelings. Thus, a Jedi can safely "trust his instincts" or "trust his feelings." Makashi Flourish 14:33, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Jedi as all living thing experiences feelings and what they learn is not suppressing it but instead understanding the feeling and it's influence on the jedi's decisions to then exclude it and remain objective, on the other hand they believed in the will of the force and they see instincts as it's expression to drive you to the path it wishes you to walk, this thing with instincts is connected to the living force as I know Sorat 17:24, 11 july 2014 (UTC)

Marriage? Edit

I was trying to research the subject of marriage between Jedi and non-Jedi and a Jedi to another Jedi pre-Ruusan Reformation, but the article was lacking. Is there any further information as such? For example, was it common? Was it frowned upon or accepted? Specifically what I'm looking for is how it would be viewed during the Great War/Cold War eras. O-ChampionOfTheForce-o 06:21, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Jedi were not permitted to marry, it was againt the jedi code. though there have been secret marriages between jedi and jedi and jedi and non-jedi.--Dr.Pepper's Krayt Dragon 04:02, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

It seems to me that Jedi marriage was more common pre-Reformation. One could use the Nomi Sunrider's marriage or the later romance between Naomi and Ulic Qel-Droma as examples. 11:51, October 28, 2009 (UTC)

Jedi Sayings Edit

I read the book The Life and Legend of Obi-Wan Kenobi and it tells how Qui-Gon Jinn tells Obi-Wan after he builds his lightsaber "the crystal is the heart of the blade. the heart is the crystal of the jedi. the jedi is the crystal of the force. the force is the blade of the heart. all our intwined: the crystal, the blade, the jedi. you are one." I think they should put a spot for that in the lightsaber training part of the article.--Dr.Pepper's Krayt Dragon 04:13, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

I agree. In the Star Wars: Clone Wars episode where Barriss Offee is building a lightsaber Master Luminara Unduli says the same.66.103.114.152 23:29, May 10, 2010 (UTC)

All Jedi Edit

I remember a page titled 'List of Jedi' which had the names of all the Jedi that existed. Why was this page removed? And where else can I find a page which lists all of the Jedi? --P.O.K.E.R. 01:34, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Military and Warfare? Edit

This section is ridiculous. Jedi Sniper? Jedi Ace? Jedi Brute? Haha. Seriously, who wrote this section. Are you just copying from a Video Game manual or something. Can you seriously put this information alongside sections like The Force, Lightsabers, and Anakin Skywalker. It may be canon by some strange means of foreplay and officialdom, but I don't buy it. I have nearly lost all respect for this website just for this entry alone.

Can I request someone to stand up and defend this section. Can I get a numbered list as to why this section is included on the "Jedi" main article. Call me a "Jedi Skeptic". Haha. Yeah, put that in this section too. Haha. "Jedi Skeptic", with a nice little link to another stub page. Yeah, a stub. Sheesh. --Jay Freedman 00:07, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

Me again. Lets create a new page for all these "Specializations". They are just clogging up the page with mindless quotes and pity-less text.
  • Create new page titled "Jedi Specializations".
  • Cut and paste the underlying sections to this new article.
  • This includes: Military and Warfare, Healing, Cultural, Diplomacy, Crime, and Instruction.
--Jay Freedman 01:36, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

Podracing Edit

I remember qui goon saying "you must have Jedi reflexes if you race pods" so does that mean that any human Jedi can be a pod racer?


Jedi are too busy to do things like podracing. Besides, I think its illegal. And if you need jedi reflexes how come all the podracers aren't jedi?! --Darth Bal 23:15, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

  • What Qui-Gon meant was that, because Jedi are attuned to the Force, their reflexes are usually much faster. A Human Jedi would have a much easier time racing Pods than a Human non-Jedi. Also, the other species seen racing, like Dugs and Vulptereens, have faster reflexes than Humans, so they don't need the help of the Force like a Human might. Also, please familiarize yourself with the template at the top of the talk page: The talk page is for discussing changes to the article, not for a general discussion about the topic in question.—Axinal Convocation Chamber 23:53, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Jedi/Dedi? Another name Idea? Edit

I was watching the UK TV show QI (Quite Interesting) and on the subject of Magic and the Oldest Trick in the book, the name of a group of Magicians or Soothsayers called Dedi, also spelt Djedi or Djedy in Ancient Egypt, is it worth mentioning these? or am I just wasting space?

  • First of all sign your posts. Secondly, if there's a possibility that it may tie in to the Behind The Scenes, than perhaps it is worth mentioning.Korsa3 21:04, January 8, 2011 (UTC)
    • Rather, it's worth mentioning if there's some proof it has anything to do with the naming, not just because it's similar, IMO. –Tm_T (Talk) 13:07, January 9, 2011 (UTC)
  • Jedi also came from the word "Jidaigeki" which means "period dramas"(which where about Samurai) in Japanese. George Lucas had influence from Akira Kurasawa especially the Hidden Fortress and when George Lucas was in Japan, he was also fascinated by the Jidaigeki films. --MarkSamurai5 (talk) 18:26, February 4, 2014 (UTC)

Jedi could mary under certain circumstances Edit

Ki-Adi-Mundi got maried and had some kidsDarth Bal 23:11, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Order almost destroyed only three times? Edit

"Although the Order was almost destroyed three times, first by the Sith Empire of Darth Revan, then 300 years later by Darth Malgus, and 4,000 years after that by the Great Jedi Purge of Darth Sidious..." is what the article states. However, the order was also almost destroyed by the Sith Triumvirate, unless that is what is meant by Darth Revan's empire, in which case I recommend clarifying. The Jedi Order was also nearly destroyed by Darth Krayt's Empire around 100 years after Sidious. Also, I believe the Sith Emperor or at least the whole Sith Empire of the Great Galactic War should be listed as the second example that's currently given (as opposed to Darth Malgus, who was one of *many* Sith during the period). Just some quick thoughts of mine when I reread the top of the article for the umpteenth time, valid suggestions? Karmic Heresy (talk) 06:25, October 16, 2012 (UTC)

It's a thousand years, not generations. Edit

It is said at least twice in the films that the jedi were guardians of the republic for a thousand years. 82.42.161.70 14:36, August 5, 2013 (UTC)

  • The exact quote from A New Hope, which is listed on the page, was: "For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic.", not a thousand years. Trip391 (talk) 19:34, August 5, 2013 (UTC)

Before closing editing on an article it would behoove the administrators to make sure that it does not contain errors.

"Oftentimes" is not a world in the English language. "Often" already refers exclusively to time.
