Dude, you gotta try this spice. I got it from Lando. Lando always has the best spice. Did you ever notice how your fingers work together, like a team? That's us. You and me, Luke, we're like the fingers of the Jedi Order. Did that statue just move? Man, this Massassi junk creeps me right the kriff out. My head feels so... (THUD).

Song of the day

With profuse apologies to Sting

There's a little blank spot on the Wook today
It's the same old thing as yesterday
There's a file missing its license box
It's a stupid noob and he just won't stop

Well the admin stats all say that I am so 'leet
But it's the same stupid thing and it's stuck on repeat
Maybe another admin will someday walk my beat
Til then it's my destiny to be the King of Delete

There's a great big pile of useless redirects
And some stupid fan-art needs to be blown to heck

Random insane theory

Some more thoughts on image quality

The following tools are essential:

  • PNGOutWin: For optimizing PNG files for size and compatibility. Be sure to select both compatibility options in the preferences. Some PNG implementations are more retarded than others, and PNGOutWin compensates for just about all of them.
  • Corel Paint Shop Pro X3: For damn near every editing task, because using Photoshop is often like using an ICBM to swat a mosquito.
  • Adobe Photoshop: Because many plugins hate PSP.
    • Perfect Resize, formerly Genuine Fractals: To blow up images to 250 pixels. NO MORE. To be used in EXTREMELY LIMITED CIRCUMSTANCES and only with administrative and/or Inquisitorius consensus. Inflating images is BAD.
  • JPEGCrop: For cropping and optimizing individual JPEGs.
  • BetterJPEG: For removing logos and doing angular crops without recompressing a JPEG.
  • JPEGTran: For optimizing downloaded JPEGs in batches (MS-DOS/Windows NT batch language knowledge required).
  • IrfanView: For viewing, cropping of uncompressed formats, and batch conversions.

Random thoughts

  1. Every time I play Star Wars Galaxies or either KOTOR game, this song always pops into my head.
  2. PIIIIEEEEE!!!!!!

These pages probably violate some rule or other, but they're too awesome to delete

Boy, there are a lot of these now. This should be a pretty complete list.

Someone remind me why anyone considers Wikipedia remotely reliable.

Bot stuff

I now have a working bot.

It will mostly be used to replace obsolete images and other chores related to deleting stuff, since that's my favorite thing to do. I may occasionally do stuff on Wookieepedia:Bot requests, but don't count on it.

Fanfic idea of the day

"In 16GR a clone commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security skyhook to the Coruscant underground. Today, still wanted by the Empire, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the Aurek-Team."

Random rant inspired by 4dot

This is a canonical woolamander.

This is a Star Wars Galaxies woolamander:

Not bad, right?


Now, this is a canonical Selonian:

And THIS is a Galaxies Selonian:

What. The. Fuck.

In a perfect world

In a perfect world, George Lucas would release the following press release:

Source:  Press release from George Lucas (in a perfect world)

To whom it may concern.
Especially Karen Traviss.
And anyone who wants to play in MY universe.
And anyone who wants to keep feeding on the Lucasfilm money machine.

Here are some G-CANON overrides to previously established "facts."

  1. The Executor was 19,000 meters long. I actually meant for it to be 17,600, but 19,000 is A-OK with me. As long as it's not 8,000.
    1. When I find the moron who is most specifically responsible for that, I will ruin him.
    2. This includes any ship ever said to be "Super-class."
    3. What the fuck is "Super-class" supposed to mean, anyway? Classes are named after the first ship of the class, and MY UNIVERSE doesn't have ships with fucking retarded names.
  2. The first Death Star was 160 kilometers across. The second was 900. Anyone who says OR IMPLIES otherwise from this point on is fired.
  3. Three million clones? Are you people HIGH? There were three quadrillion. Not all clones of Jango Fett. Not all from Kamino.
  4. And you know how many of those three quadrillion gave a shit about Mandalorian culture? About a hundred. That's 0.000000000003 percent. Know why?
  5. Because the Mandalorians suck. They're barbarians who occasionally get a bug up their collective ass and have to go vandalize the galaxy until they get smacked down by Jedi. That's what Jedi do.

Please note that these are not "retcons." These are overrides. These are canonical facts to replace misinformation that should never have existed.

Sincerely,
George Lucas.
The guy who created your whole fucking universe.

Miscellaneous things

  • The only canonical way to play any of the Dark Forces games is to put on God Mode and only use your fists and/or your Briar pistol.

Quote of the random time period

"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey... stuff."
―The Doctor[src]

A song

With apologies to Monty Python.

Part 1

Brave Ad-mi-ral Daala rode forth from in the Maw.
She was not afraid to die, oh Adm'ral Daala.
She was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways.
Brave, brave, brave, Adm'ral Daala!

She was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp.
Or to have her eyes gouged out and her elbows broken.
To have her kneecaps split and her body burned away
And her limbs all hacked and mangled, Adm'ral Daala.

Her love vaporized
And her hideout found
And her minions kidnapped
And her Suncrusher stole
And her ships destr- ("That's--that's enough music for now, lads!")

Part 2

So Daala ran away. ("No!")
Bravely ran away, away. ("I didn't!")
When Rebels reared their ugly heads,
She bravely turned her tail and fled. ("No!")
Yes, Adm'ral Daala turned about ("I didn't!")
And gallantly she chickened out. ("I never did!")
Bravely making hyperspace
She fled the scene at rapid pace, ("All lies!")
Bravest of the brave, Adm'ral Daala! ("I never!")

She is packing it in,
And packing it up,
And sneaking away,
And buggering off,
And chickening out,
And pissing off home,
Yes, bravely she is throwing in the sponge.

Hmm....

So who is this Darth Culator? Depends on which Darth Culator you mean. The fictional Darth Culator is the head of the Order of Sith Accountants. This is slightly ironic because the real Darth Culator doesn't like math.

The real Darth Culator is a 33 year old guy with a great job, a car that terrifies the masses, a slightly irritating but still irreplaceable family, some fairly crazy friends, and a hobby that consumes an unhealthy amount of his free time. He's slightly eccentric and likes to use the third person a lot. He doesn't wish to offend the mighty one or his Bryar pistol, but presumes to claim he has a Katarn-like beard.

The admins on this wiki tend to get impersonated a lot by people who have no lives. So just for reference, here's where you'll see a Darth Culator that's actually the real one. I am, as far as I know, the first person to come up with the name Darth Culator, so check with me if you see one anywhere other than someplace on this list.

Wikis I'm on (as Darth Culator):

  • This one (and other Wikia-hosted wikis (don't call them "Wikias," that sickens me)
  • Wikipedia (rarely)
  • Jedipedia (the real one, not the fake Wikia copy)

Forums I'm on (as Darth Culator):

  • TheForce.net
  • StarWars.com
  • StarDestroyer.net
  • The Rancor Pit (posted maybe three times in a year)
  • Reddit (so far solely as Wookieepedia tech support)

Social media I'm on:

If you see a wild Culator anywhere else, there's a very good chance it's an impersonator. We have very dedicated and experienced trolls. I will not be held responsible if you are fooled by them.

Miscellaneous stuff which is hopefully allowed

  • Did you know it only costs $4.95 USD (plus shipping) to become a Jedi Knight? [1] I wonder what that works out to in Republic credits. (Hmm. It went up to $7.99 sometime recently. Guess overhead at the Jedi Temple is going up.) (Hey, it's $10.99 now! The Credit must be getting hit by inflation! We have to get back on the Aurodium standard! Vote Luap Nor for Chancellor!)

On graphics

  • For the love of Waru, people, when you capture a DVD frame at 720x480, you should resize it to 720x405, not 853x480. Blowing things up doesn't improve their quality. Also, when you capture a frame from a 1080i file (not that I know anything about such files or where to find them, wink wink), use a tool that can deinterlace the frames or else scale it down it to a reasonable size. If you download an HD Star Wars video that's labeled as "1080p" then it's most likely a 1080i broadcast that has been IVTC'd, so you don't need to worry about the interlacing. (1080p Star Wars movies aren't yet available in the wild, at least not as far as I'm aware. What you'll normally find is a 1080i capture from HBO or Cinemax in the US or Sky in the UK.)
  • Ignore all that. No more 1080i screenshots. Blu-ray or death. Ask me how or just ask me to do it for you.
  • When taking screenshots from 3-D games, turn the detail settings all the way up. I cannot stress this enough. I sometimes think we need to enforce minimum system requirements for being allowed to post screens.
  • When you scan something from a print source, don't be afraid to apply a little gaussian blur to make it look less grainy. Being able to see the individual dots isn't really necessary or useful.
  • Those old DOS games had a resolution of 320x200 or 640x400, but they were meant to be viewed on monitors with a 4:3 aspect ratio just like we have now. When you capture from one of those games with an emulator like DOSBox or VMWare or Virtual PC, resize the screencap back to 4:3. In keeping with my "extra pixels≠extra quality" philosophy, this would mean resizing 640x400 down to 533x400, not up to 640x480.
  • Adobe Photoshop and Corel Paint Shop Pro have this neat tool called "levels." Learn it. Use it. Love it. Too bright and too dark scans and captures can be rescued with relative ease by proper use of this one tool.
  • I don't believe we should have galleries. They're even further outside the bounds of fair use than we already go in normal operations. When I delete a duplicate image, I'll fix articles to point to the image we're keeping, but I won't fix galleries. Deal with it.

On grammar

  • Grammar abstraction an old people by created was restrict ideas to the flow of.

On life in general

  • What's the GFFA equivalent of a housecat? A pittin? Then what's the GFFA equivalent of a 20-pound housecat who can't fit through doors made for his species?

Revenge of the insane theories

Many of the inconsistencies in galactic history can be explained away by powerful but long-deceased superbeings. The Architects. The Celestials. The stuff of myths and legends.

I say those legends involved a lot more fur and trees and dancing than anyone thought.

Because the Great Ancient Race of legend was actually the Ewoks.

Think about it for a minute. Think about all the "magic" that happens on Endor. All a bunch of quantum smoke and nanotechnology mirrors.

The Endor Holocaust was averted by the automatic self-activation of the Shiny Happy Deflector Shield. It was part of the Super-Special Welcome-Strangers Planetary Defense Grid, which once defended the Space-Battles-Are-Megatons-Of-Fun Shipyards.

The Ewoks were masters of space and time. Beings with powers beyond imagining. Until they met an equally powerful race that was mean and nasty and hated dancing and trees. Perhaps the Killiks. Perhaps the Rakata. We may never know.

But a brutal war wiped out both the Mean Nasty Enemy and most of the Ewoks, and the last remaining members of the Ewok Empire retreated to Endor, where they eventually forgot their legacy of expansion and abandoned their technological ways.

Remnants of the Golden Age of Ewoks and the Big Not-Fun War that ended it are everywhere. The Maw. The Utegetu Nebula. The Kathol sector. A great big mess left by the teddybears of doom and their foes.

Only Simon remembers.
