Wookieepedia aspires to be a reliable source for all Star Wars fans to read and draw information from, and as such, fan-created continuity and fan fiction are not allowed within our articles. All in-universe material must be attributable to a reliable, published source.

Please do not remove talk page and forum comments, as they are part of the public record. Remember that you should always sign your comments on talk and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wookieepedian! If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the Senate Hall, visit our official IRC channel, or ask me on my talk page. May the Force be with you! —Graestan(Talk) 23:00, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Unidentified Jedi/Sith (Sacking of Coruscant) Edit

Please stop editing these articles, as I am in the process of working on them. Thank you. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 19:18, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Since you edit what I've edited, fine to me... Alexrd 19:35, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

If I may interject, the point is that you have blatantly disregarded one of the header templates of the article, which politely asks you NOT to edit the article, as someone is performing on-going work on it. This is why you are being reverted. Please stop. OLIOSTER (talk) Sith Emblem 19:47, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Blocked Edit

Dialog-error You have been blocked from editing for 1 day for violation of Wookieepedia's 3RR rule. Whether or not someone is correct in this matter is not the point. It's about having respect for the article and your fellow Wookieepedians, which means not edit warring. If you have a problem with the contributions someone is making, discuss it with them on the article's talk page or on a user talk page. Your suspension period will end in 24 hours. Please do not continue this type of editing behavior. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. Toprawa and Ralltiir 19:50, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Talk page content Edit

Please do not remove administrative warnings or any other talk page messages from your talk page. They should be kept as part of the public record. If you no longer wish to see them, you may archive them. Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir 17:36, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

WP:TCW Edit

Hey Alexrd. As project head for WP:TCW, I'm trying to get a better idea of who's still interested in participating in our project. If you're still interested in participating, please leave a note on my talk page or contact me in IRC. If you do not respond within a week, I will assume that you are no longer interested in participating. That doesn't mean that your name will be removed from the "Participants" list, but it means that any of your current projects will be removed from the project page so that others have a chance to work on them. Likewise, if you currently have any projects under your belt, I highly encourage you to review them, and if you don't plan on working on them within the next two or three weeks, I recommend reconsidering them. Thanks. Your project head, CC7567 (talk) 05:51, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Warning Edit

Please do not upload duplicates of existing files, especially if they are of lower resolution/quality compared to original. Thank you. MauserComlink 11:00, October 14, 2009 (UTC)

  • The quality is better, although it has a lower resolution. Alexrd 11:03, October 14, 2009 (UTC)

NahdarEdit

Hey Alexrd, thanks for checking with me on the infobox issue. While I like the image, I agree with CC and Cav that it's currently insufficient for the infobox. I appreciate the suggestion though, and if you find any others you think may work don't hesitate to make a proposition. Darth Trayus Sith Emblem (Trayus Academy) 01:47, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

WP:TCW Edit

CadBane-DK
Hello everyone, this is CC7567 from WookieeProject The Clone Wars. It is currently six months after the project was started, and the number of individual projects is steadily growing. While I am happy that so many of you are writing for the WookieeProject, the majority of articles there have been sitting there for months. Several users even have ten projects or more at the moment, and I am frankly just disappointed at the level of inactivity that is befalling our articles. I understand that many of you have other obligations, and while I respect that, the responsibility falls to you to judge whether or not you're still capable of writing all of these articles, whether in time or in energy. For this reason, I once again urge you to reconsider your current projects. The criteria should be that you have the unrelenting intent to finish all of your projects within the next month. I myself have had to reconsider my own projects on account of real-life time constraints. I do not want to have to set a limit to the number of projects per user, but if it comes down to that, I will, because I do not want to see the project deteriorate and hope that you do not want to either. Thank you. CC7567 (talk) 19:22, October 31, 2009 (UTC)

Re: Season 3 episode articles Edit

I honestly have no idea what you're talking about. They're canon; the source has just been recently removed from the Internet and is under investigation. CC7567 (talk) 20:24, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Really? Since I haven't seen any source (and thought the summary was very strange), I thought it was fake. Sorry then. Alexrd 12:23, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

TFU II art Edit

Just wanted to let you know that "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II" official art this image is not sufficient. It's not an official source at all in point of fact. You need to provide a link from where you found it, or something else more specific. The same issue came up with promotional images for ROTS. People were putting the film as the source, when in actuality, a neutral background promotional image cannot be sourced to a film. Just wanted to give you a head's up. - ~ JMAS Jolly Trooper Hey, it's me! 16:34, October 14, 2010 (UTC)

  • Fixed. I wasn't sure if it was worthy to put the link, since not everyone has acess to the server. Anyway, Activision is the official publisher of LucasArts in Europe. Alexrd 23:40, October 14, 2010 (UTC)
    • So you work for Activision? Is that how you were able to access the image? Because you're right, when I click the link, it requests a username and pw, which of course, I don't have. - ~ JMAS Jolly Trooper Hey, it's me! 00:01, October 15, 2010 (UTC)
      • No, I don't. However, I have found acess to the server. This is mainly promotional material, that is usually used by magazines. Alexrd 00:08, October 15, 2010 (UTC)
        • Mind sharing how you found access to the server? ;) ~ JMAS Jolly Trooper Hey, it's me! 00:11, October 15, 2010 (UTC)
          • Through a third party. ;) Alexrd 00:19, October 15, 2010 (UTC)
            • I was afraid you were gonna say that. LOL ~ JMAS Jolly Trooper Hey, it's me! 00:20, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

I have more pictures, if you don't mind I upload them. However, I still haven't found any other unrestricted site with these pictures available to everyone. Alexrd 00:23, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

  • I'd love that, but I wouldn't recommend it. The site isn't meant for file sharing. However, if you have the ability to put them into a zip file, and then upload that to a site like MediaFire or Ziddu that would work well. Then you could just email me the link. - ~ JMAS Jolly Trooper Hey, it's me! 00:39, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

Warning Edit

While your edit to CT-21-0408 is appreciated, the page currently has a template called {{Inuse}} at the top. This template means that someone is currently working on improving the article, and to avoid edit conflicts, no one other than the placer of the template should edit the page while the message is visible. Thank you for your cooperation. JangFett (Talk) 21:55, March 5, 2011 (UTC)

  • Didn't noticed it. Sorry. Alexrd 23:07, March 5, 2011 (UTC)

TFU2 artworks Edit

hello alex,just wanted to ask you for a favor those TFU2 artworks you found like the yoda dagobah picture,could you send them to me as well was wondering what they made,since the last package was published on lucas arts homepage, but never saw the ones for TFU2 thanx

Blu-ray uploadsEdit

Just for comparison, this is an actual Blu-Ray capture. This is your upload of the same frame. This is another actual Blu-Ray screenshot. This is your corresponding version. If you do not immediately recognize the difference, please cease uploading film screenshots immediately. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 12:58, September 17, 2011 (UTC)

  • Of course I recognize the difference, there is no need to be rude here. I've only read the uploading notes after I've uploaded those. I was not sure if I should upload a full-res picture because I've been warned before that it makes the page slower to load. That's why I uploaded at 720p res. Alexrd 13:03, September 17, 2011 (UTC)
    • Loading times aren't really an issue. When the image is used in an article, it gets recompressed into the same size thumbnail regardless of the source size, and people click on the link for the full-size image because they want quality. The main problem isn't the resolution, anyway. There's also a noticeable amount of macroblocking which reduces the effective resolution even further. Macroblocking is usually a sign that your editing software has its JPEG compression turned up way too high, or your source has been recompressed from the original MPEG-4 stream. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 13:13, September 17, 2011 (UTC)
      • Shouldn't we use PNG's, then? The macroblocking may be due to PNG to JPG conversion. The screenshots I take are converted to a minor resolution and to a different format. Alexrd 13:19, September 17, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Title Edit

It's for the community to decide which is the "right" formatting of the title and which is the "wrong" one. Almost always when you see "Star Wars The Clone Wars," there's a non-visible colon that's still present. I understand the urge to make sure everything is formatted properly on the site, but such conduct should not go against WP:CON, which is what the CT is determining right now. Please therefore make sure to reserve any more discussion about this to the CT where applicable. Thank you. CC7567 (talk) 01:19, December 27, 2011 (UTC)

Ep I Insiders Guide Edit

Hi there, do you have a copy of the Episode I Insider's Guide? If you do, would you mind looking through it for any mention of this guy, or if there is just a picture of him? Thanks, and May the Force be with you! Corellian PremierRobotechAll along the watchtower 21:47, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

  • Yes, I do. I can check it out tomorrow and let you know if I find anything. Alexrd 23:35, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
    • Turns out there is no info about that droid. The only OOM droid on the Insider's Guide is OOM-9. However, I can upload a better picture for that article if you want. Alexrd 22:38, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
      • Thank you very much, that was the last source I needed to check...as for the picture, I like the one that's there now. Corellian PremierRobotechAll along the watchtower 23:02, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
        • The picture I have is from the movie and has better quality and resolution. It's the same frame as the one on the article. Alexrd 13:02, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

WP:VG group project Edit

Hey, Alexrd. Recently, a discussion was brought up in one of the forums for WP:VG. The topic, seen here, is a discussion of a group project. Corellian Premier originally came up with the idea, and he thought perhaps the Battlefront series would be a good one to work on. Anyway, if you have any thoughts and/or are interested in helping out, feel free to join in on the discussion, and we'll see what we can do with this. Cheers!—Cal JediInfinite Empire (Personal Comm Channel) 15:41, March 28, 2012 (UTC)

Liam quote Edit

Sorry about that. I only saw at the last instant that your edit was not in the Powers and abilities section above the Bts like I initially thought it was. I cancelled the browser action to save, but I apparently missed it and it reverted. You fixed it back so it's all good. —GethralkinHyperwave 14:26, April 17, 2012 (UTC)

  • No problem. Alexrd 21:32, April 17, 2012 (UTC)

Comprehensive article nominationsEdit

Hello, I am just informing you that your CorusMall and 7-Gee Lounge nominations have unaswered objections over a week old. If you do not reply to them soon they will be removed from the CAN page.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 16:51, May 18, 2012 (UTC)

WP:VG and Star Wars: 1313 Edit

Hey, Alex. I'd like to direct your attention to this. If you could check it out when you get a chance, I would appreciate it. Thanks.—Cal JediInfinite Empire (Personal Comm Channel) 18:16, June 1, 2012 (UTC)

Mall and lounge Edit

Hey, Alexrd,

I've archived the comprehensive article nominations of CorusMall and 7-Gee Lounge as failures, as both had objections over two weeks old. 7-Gee Lounge is over 250 words, and CorusMall will likely be over 250 words after ExiledJedi's objections are dealt with --- as such, I'd like to encourage you to take both articles to the Good article nominations page. Your enthusiasm for nominating articles is great, and nominating something for Good article status is a great learning experience. Go for it! Menkooroo 01:02, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

WP:VG one year anniversary Edit

1313 preview
WookieeProject Video Games has completed its first year!
A year ago today, WookieeProject Video Games was founded. Although it started out rather small, it quickly grew to be currently one of the most productive WookieeProjects. In that year, WookieeProject Video Games has seen seven Featured articles, thirty-four Good articles, and sixty-five Comprehensive articles passed, a very impressive amount especially for such a short time.


WP:VG was founded by Cal Jedi on July 8, 2011 with a mission "to improve...video game articles and bring them up to date" and also to "bring all related articles to Featured article status, Good article status, and Comprehensive article status." WP:VG has answered the call to the best of its ability. Five days after its formation, Exiledjedi joined the Project. More and more users began joining, until now, the project has eleven members. On July 26, 2011, the Project gained its first Comprehensive article, Unidentified Bakuran astromech droid, taken to status by Cal Jedi. Shortly thereafter, WP:VG's first Good article, J'Meeb Gumb, was taken to status by Exiledjedi on August 17, 2011. WP:VG's first Featured article, Battle of Kessel (0 ABY), was brought to status on October 19, 2011 by a guest nominator, Kilson.


WP:VG has associated with many other WookieeProjects—such as WookieeProject The Old Republic, WookieeProject Knights of the Old Republic, WookieeProject Galaxies, and others—helping each other bring articles to status. Overall, Wookieepedia's video game articles have drastically improved. While many have been taken to status, many more have been worked on and improved through the efforts of WP:VG's members.


There are many Star Wars video games. From the very first Star Wars game, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, to the recently released Kinect Star Wars, WP:VG has been there to work on an area on Wookieepedia that needs much attention. With the many games that have been produced under the Star Wars title, a large amount of people have come to love Star Wars games. We have had some tremendous Star Wars games in the past, and as we look to the future, we can see many more promising Star Wars titles on the horizon. Star Wars: 1313 is just around the corner, and it will require much work. And that is not the end. There will be more Star Wars games in the future. WP:VG needs to be there to address their needs on Wookieepedia.


However, a WookieeProject is nothing without its members. An impressive amount of work has been done by Corellian Premier. He has done a lot of work taking care of the little details in video game articles—many of which would otherwise have been forgotten—and he has also done a fine job of doing a lot of "inside work" of WP:VG. Olioster has also been doing a tremendous job of late. He has recently nominated an impressive amount of articles from Star Wars Galaxies. Even though the game has been offline for quite some time now, he keeps carrying on in his work. Congratulations, though, go to all of WP:VG's members. Without the members, WP:VG would be nothing. Together, the members of WP:VG have done a wondeful work on Wookieepedia. WookieeProject Video Games has done a great job over the past year. May it continue to do even better in the years to come. May the Force be with the gamers!

Senate building image Edit

Hello Alexrd. I see you've just uploaded a new version of the "Galacticsenate2.jpg" image. Is this from the blu-ray edition? I'm asking this because, if you do possess the blu-ray edition of the six movies, I'd like to request one or two shots if you don't mind. Regards. --LelalMekha (talk) 18:39, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

  • Yes, it's from the Blu-ray. I do have all six, so feel free to ask. Cheers Alexrd (talk) 19:33, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
    • I'm working on an upgrade drive pertaining to Massassi-related articles, so I think blu-ray versions of those files those would be welcome: EPIV_Throne_Room.jpg (on Grand Audience Chamber) ; Tikal screenshot1.jpg (on Massassi Site) ; The Rebel Base.jpg (on Great Temple). Thanks in advance. --LelalMekha (talk) 19:39, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
      • At the moment I can only upload them at 720p, but if you want 1080p you'll have to wait a few days. At the moment, only Tikal_screenshot1.jpg would benefit from an upgrade to 720p. Shall I do it? Alexrd (talk) 19:52, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
        • Oh, I can wait. I have time on my hands those days. ;-) --LelalMekha (talk) 19:54, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
          • Just to clarify, is this for the Wiki, or do you want an external link? Alexrd (talk) 19:57, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
            • It's for the wiki. I guess you know what kind of uploads you are allowed to do, as you've already done it before. --LelalMekha (talk) 20:03, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
              • Hello Alexrd. Just writing this short message to remind you of our conversation here. Not that I'm in a hurry, just to be sure you haven't forgotten. ;) Take all the time you need, though. Regards. --LelalMekha (talk) 20:38, August 5, 2012 (UTC)
                • Oh, don't worry. I haven't forgot. Just waiting for my friend to return it. Alexrd (talk) 20:58, August 5, 2012 (UTC)
  • Hello again, Alexrd. Since you seem to have recovered your original trilogy blu-ray discs, I just wanted to remind you of this old discussion. Whenever you have time, my friend! ;-) --LelalMekha (talk) 21:17, December 27, 2012 (UTC)
    • Done. Sorry for the delay. If you need more screenshots, just ask. Alexrd (talk) 22:05, December 27, 2012 (UTC)
      • Oh, I wasn't in a hurry, so there's no harm done. Thank you again! --LelalMekha (talk) 22:08, December 27, 2012 (UTC)

Images Edit

Alexrd, please make sure that all articles make use of the better image before marking the obsolete one for deletion. Otherwise, redlinks will be present, and it leaves more work for others to correct. Please make sure to use Special:Whatlinkshere. Thank you. CC7567 (talk) 15:54, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

  • That's what I do. I only leave userpages and talkpages. Alexrd (talk) 16:14, September 27, 2012 (UTC)
    • It goes for all articles. It's usually fine to make minor edits to user pages and old talk page posts unless a user explicitly states not to. If applicable, you can leave a message on the user's talk page just to verify what you changed. CC7567 (talk) 03:02, September 28, 2012 (UTC)

SW:TCW Official Episode Guide info Edit

Hey, I'm wondering if you can help me out by giving me all the information from Star Wars: The Clone Wars Official Episode Guide Series 1 & 2 about Tan Divo and the Coruscant Security Force. Thanks Coruscantfan (Talk) 23:31, October 21, 2012 (UTC)

  • Are you interested in any particular info? Alexrd (talk) 22:59, October 22, 2012 (UTC)
    • I'm not really sure how the book is organized but if its by episode, than any information on Tan Divo and the CSF would be in episodes Lightsaber Lost, Sphere of Influence, Duchess of Mandalore, Lethal Trackdown, Evil Plans, Hostage Crisis, Pursuit of Peace, Senate Murders, and Deception. What ever little detail you can find will help, thanks! Coruscantfan (Talk) 05:02, October 25, 2012 (UTC)
      • Well, the guide I have is for episodes of Seasons 1 and 2 only and it's organized by episode.

It does have information on the Security Droid: "These flying droids respond to emergencies on Coruscant, identifying suspects and guiding police droids and military personnel to their location."

The Police Droid: "These mechanicals keep order on Coruscant and other Republic worlds, and are programmed to detect illegal activity and apprehend criminals. They do so peacefully if possible, using their blasters as a last resort."

And Tan Divo: "A bumbling police inspector, Tan Divo is sent to the Senate to investigate the murder of Onaconda Farr. It's a job Divo fears will generate a lot of paper work."

It also has information about the riot troopers, but I don't think they apply. Hope that helps. Alexrd (talk) 11:04, October 30, 2012 (UTC)

Just a lil' request Edit

Hello, Alexrd! Since you do possess the blue-ray edition of The Phantome Menace, I wondered if you could upload better versions of a few images I need. These are from a cutscene that features Adrian Dunbar as "Bail Organa" and the rest of the cut Alderaanian delegation. The current versions of these pictures were taken from the Internet, so their quality isn't really outstanding. I know five pics is many requests at a time, but it's all in a good cause: all those images are to be used in the framework of the current politics barn-burner. :)

So, if you have time to do it, I'd be grateful. Here are the five requested pics:

  • File:AlderaanianDelegation.png
  • File:DunbarBluescreen.png
  • File:BailAntillesTPM.jpg
  • File:BailAntillesPortrait.png
  • File:AgrippaPortrait.png

Thanks in advance for your time. --LelalMekha (talk) 19:00, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

  • Sure thing. But just so you know, the deleted scenes are not in very high resolution. So while I can get them with a bit more detail, their resolution will be much lower. Compare these two pictures:

This is because the deleted scenes are upscaled and thus suffer from artifacts like macroblocking.

P.S: Actually, that was a bad example, since that was from the deleted scene intro. I shall get a new one soon. Alexrd (talk) 19:38, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

    • As you seem to be much more savvy than I am about image resolution and so forth, I would trust your experience and judgement in what's the best thing to do. Just let me know. --LelalMekha (talk) 20:22, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
      • Thanks. I've just replaced all of them, see if you like them better now. The "BailAntillesTPM.jpg" is now replaced with "Alderaan Delegation.png", as seen above (if you prefer the one with higher resolution but much less detail, replace it back in the Bail Antilles article). As I said, there is not that much of an improvement, but I think it's a little bit better. Alexrd (talk) 20:53, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
        • Thanks for the uploads. If I may abuse your kindness and patience, could I please request that you take another shot for "File:Alderaan Delegation.png" ? The thing is that Bail's position is exactly the same and this and "File:BailAntillesPortrait.png", which is a cropped version of it. For the sake of diversity, I'd prefer if the "Alderaan Delegation" picture was a bit different, with Bail and Aldrete looking at each other—as it was before. After that, I promise I'll leave you alone. ^^' --LelalMekha (talk) 20:57, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
          • Done. Here it is:
BailAgrippa TPM
Alexrd (talk) 21:56, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
            • Wonderful. Thanks a lot. Provided you'll let me return the favour. --LelalMekha (talk) 22:08, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

HD Naboo engineers Edit

Naboo Engineers

A pack of blurry engineers

Hello Alexrd, that's me again. I'm currently working on a detailed survey of the futhork inscriptions in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. There is a scene in which we can see a bunch of Naboo soldiers and engineers with futhork writing on their helmets. Unfortunately, the DVD version is way too blurry to decipher the inscriptions—as you can see there. It happesn just before the Queen and the Jedi leave Naboo via the Theed Hangar. If you could provide me with a blu-ray version of such shots, it'd be marvelous. (By the way, you don't seem to ever need any help at all here on the Wook, but please do remember that I'm willing to return the favour after all those HD pictures you uploaded for me.) --LelalMekha (talk) 14:09, December 2, 2012 (UTC)

  • Done, feel free to ask for more shots when you need. And thanks for the help offer. Alexrd (talk) 12:26, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
    • Thanks. In fact, any shot where you can see an inscription on the engineers helmets is most welcome. It seems that at least five other people on this picture have writing on their helmet, so if you see any shot where one of these is readable, it would be really helpful. --LelalMekha (talk) 13:54, December 3, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Screenshot uploads Edit

Sure. They are taken in jpeg, but I can do png's as well. I was under the impression that jpeg was standard for Wookieepedia. --R5-X41238-G8-R3-3124-D2 21:38, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Pictures Edit

First I wasn't aware the other version existed, and second because of the lack of pictures on the net, i had to create my on screen capture from a bad quality video.

I was not aware this picture existed, because when I searched for pictures of this category, i.e v-19s and axe, nothing came up, this is also why I added the imagecat thing on the v-19s page, to notify other users that the pictures they're looking for are already on the site.

Just out of interest as well, do you create screen caps yourself? Because the V-19 page is one that is in need of some good quality ones, especially the battle over Teth. --Warpath 16:35, December 14, 2012 (UTC)

  • Unfortunatly all my Star wars are on blu-ray, and I don't have the Blu-ray drive for my computer. And like I said earlier, if you can make some caps of the V-19 in combat, landing or in general, that would be great. --Warpath 17:00, December 14, 2012 (UTC)

PicturesEdit

All right then, I will continue like that. --XXLVenom998 (Surprise me!) 13:06, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

  • You don't say! Maybe I would if I had the chance, but with this new method, I can't give several details like the source when uploading! Otherwise, what's the problem with my pictures? Cheers, --XXLVenom998 (Surprise me!) 19:28, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Star Tours screens Edit

Well, actually, I just found them by searching the Internet. A guy on deviantART has them all[1]. This would probably cast doubt on these pictures' origins if they were not identical to confirmed official footage, only much bigger. I do not know where that person got them from, but they look absolutely official. Just compare this one with the picture that as featured on page 7 of this pdf of an official magazine. There is no doubt this is the same picture, and not a fan recreation. --LelalMekha (talk) 15:45, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

  • Sorry to chime in, but here is it one official version of it. Stake black msg 16:31, February 4, 2013 (UTC)
    • Well, you still can see that the background pic of Otoh Gunga is identical. --LelalMekha (talk) 16:38, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

Bail Organa pic from AOTC Edit

Hey Alexrd! Whenever you a have a spare moment, could you upload a better version of File:Interrupt Bail Organa.png? JMAS told me you had the HD TV version of AOTC, which is way better for screenshots than the blu-ray. Whenever you have time, anyway: there's no rush. :) Regards. --LelalMekha (talk) 00:30, February 7, 2013 (UTC)

  • Done. The Blu-ray has a sharper picture, but it also has a weird teal tint all over it. I could try to take a new screenshot from it later on and try to fix the colour timing. Alexrd (talk) 01:13, February 7, 2013 (UTC)
    • Well, it's already much clearer like that, thank you. Of course, if you could fix a blu-ray pic, I guess it would be even better. But I don't want it to be a chore. --LelalMekha (talk) 01:17, February 7, 2013 (UTC)
      • I'm already trying to do that for most of AotC screenshots, it's just a matter of start uploading whenever I have the time. Unfortunately, some shots are almost impossible to fix. Still, if I can get a better version of that one, I'll upload it. Alexrd (talk) 01:26, February 7, 2013 (UTC)

Image renaming Edit

I see no reason to rename the image. If its an improved version of the existing image, then upload over the top of it. If its a new image entirely, then just upload it under a different filename. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 22:07, March 19, 2013 (UTC)

Again, I see no reason to change the specific naming of an existing image to a generic descriptor simply because you want your image to have that name. Choose a new file name and upload the image. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 22:39, March 19, 2013 (UTC)

WP:VG milestone Edit

Good day, gamers! WookieeProject Video Games has reached a new milestone. The members of WP:VG have taken 100 articles to Comprehensive status! The 100th article was Inspector-General, from the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II in-game databank. The full list of articles can be seen here. WP:VG and its members can be proud of the accomplishments we have made. As we near the two year mark of this ambitious project, we look back and see all the great progress and improvements we have made to Wookieepedia as a whole and the video game aspect of the wiki in particular. Most of these 100 articles would have probably been lost in the shuffle had it not been for the hard work, dedication, and patient perceptiveness of the users who comprise WP:VG. Out of all the current WookieeProjects, WookieeProject Video Games has the second highest amount of Comprehensive articles to its name. I would like to say good work and congratulations to all the members of WP:VG. Keep up the excellent job, and May the Force be with the Gamers!—Cal JediInfinite Empire (Personal Comm Channel) 20:40, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

Replacing images Edit

Hey Alexrd, before I delete the original images, please be sure to replace the original file names with the new file names in the articles. Here's the list of images you have listed as IfD that still are inuse:

I'll delete them once this is taken care of. JangFett (Talk) 12:58, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

Redirect Edit

It works fine for me. What problem are you experiencing? - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 13:21, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

  • Strange, when I made the redirect, it merely showed a link to the main page, instead of automatically taking me there. It's all good now though. Alexrd (talk) 19:17, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

WarningEdit

Hello. Please do not add content to my own workbench, even if there is no template at the top of the page to remind you. If you wish to edit it in any way, please respond on my talk page, do not ever edit the workbench without my express permission. Thank you. Dark Lord 21 (talk) 10:37, June 23, 2013 (UTC)

Re: WarningEdit

My apologies, I only had a very quick glance at the edit history. But, I would still appreciate it if a message was left on the talk page to inform me of the change. Once again, my sincerest apologies. Dark Lord 21 (talk) 10:48, June 23, 2013 (UTC)

Images Edit

Before uploading images, please take the time to properly source/format the image sourcing. Take a look at my edits here for future reference. Normally I have to go back and correct your sourcing, which is something that I shouldn't have to do. No one should clean up after you. Thanks, JangFett (Talk) 13:21, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

Pelikki Edit

Hello Alexrd! Since you own a copy of The Phantom Menace: The Expanded Visual Dictionary, could you tell me what is contained in the Pelikki entry? Thanks in advance. ;-) --LelalMekha (talk) 16:21, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

  • Thank you again, my friend. ;-) --LelalMekha (talk) 22:26, August 20, 2013 (UTC)

Replacing images in archived pages Edit

Hey. When you upload a replacement image for one that is used on an archived page, you can still access the edit page by getting there via the history page or by typing the URL for the edit page directly into your browser's address bar. The script that removes the edit links doesn't prevent editing; it just makes it more difficult to reach the edit page, which helps keep newbies from posting on those pages (which is the purpose of the script). —MJ— Council Chambers 22:07, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the info. Alexrd (talk) 22:12, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

New WP:VG leadership Edit

Hey, Alex, I just wanted to notify you of this. Cheers.—Cal JediInfinite Empire (Personal Comm Channel) 14:06, August 26, 2013 (UTC)

Editing in others' userpages Edit

Even though you are editing in good faith, please keep in mind that it is discouraged to edit in others' user pages. You may inform them about the new image via their talk page. Thanks, JangFett (Talk) 22:29, September 2, 2013 (UTC)

  • Again please do not edit in user pages other than yours. If you continue to do so, I will temporarily block you from editing. Thank you for your cooperation, JangFett (Talk) 18:31, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
    • I'm not sure I understand. I've left descriptions of what I've done on the edit history and/or talk pages. And I can't send images for deletion when they're still in use. Alexrd (talk) 18:51, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
      • They can be deleted if they're only found in user pages (that happened in the past). Just create a gallery or link the new image in the user's talk page. JangFett (Talk) 18:57, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
        • I didn't know that. I always thought we shouldn't leave red links when replacing pictures, that's why I was doing it. Alexrd (talk) 19:08, September 3, 2013 (UTC)

Replacing imagesEdit

I was able to find the sources this time, but when replacing images with higher-quality versions in the future, it's best to update the source. Thanks! -- Darth Culator (Talk) 19:32, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks, I uploaded the three pictures at the same time and forgot to edit the source. Alexrd (talk) 21:13, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

WP:VG Edit

Hello there, this is your local tyrannical dictator project team lead. Now that things have settled down a bit I wanted to bring this to your attention. Anyway, check it out when you get a chance and leave a comment, and keep on trekkin'. Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 16:32, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

Episode I Insider Guide images Edit

Hey Alexrd! I see you've been reuploading better versions of pictures from the Episode I Insider's Guide, and I wondered how you could achieve that. I also wondered if could possibly upload new ones for Liana Merian, Agrippa Aldrete and the unidentified draped senator while you're at it! Is that possible? Regards. --LelalMekha (talk) 11:35, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

  • I'm using Bundle Explorer 1.1 to extract the assets. And sure, I'll upload those as well. Alexrd (talk) 11:40, November 12, 2013 (UTC)
    • Why thanks, that's great from you! And you can really see a huge difference in quality on the draped senator! If I may ask one last thing, I'd be interested in a better version of that one too. If I still had the Insider's Guide, I could help you uploading new versions all around, but the CD-ROM doesn't work anymore—and I can't seem to find it, anyway. --LelalMekha (talk) 12:16, November 12, 2013 (UTC)
      • No problem. Just so you know, I'm fixing the contrast and gamma on some of the pictures because most of them have too much brightness (which can be seen on the draped senator, for example). Alexrd (talk) 12:24, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Replacing image Edit

Yes, you're quite right about that. Thanks for the reminder. --LelalMekha (talk) 13:31, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Starkiller-Kota.jpg/ Starkiller Kota Salvation.png Edit

I'm not sure how many times I've reverted this edit now, but the two images File:Starkiller-Kota.jpg and File:Starkiller Kota Salvation.png are nowhere near the same to consider obsoleting one for the other. Please do not continue to replace one for the other in the Kota article, and then try to obsolete the jpg; I will revert it as the image in situ now is the one I want in the article, not the one you are attempting to replace it with. If you want to upload a better version of File:Starkiller-Kota.jpg, then be my guest, but unless it matches the original image in terms of image and framing, then I will continue to revert your attempts to obsolete it. Thank you for your cooperation. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 18:54, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

I have no issue with replacing the image with a better quality one, if the image is the same as the one being replaced. But the two images are not even remotely the same. Each image was chosen with deliberate care when I authored the article in the first place, and I would like to retain the image in the article. Since you obviously have the means to upload a better quality version of the current image, then I do not see the problem with doing a straight like-for-like swap. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 19:11, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Creating articles Edit

When you create a new article on Wookieepedia, we require that you actually write some kind of description for the article subject. Likewise, adding a relevant category to the bottom of the article is also considered a requirement. The condition in which you created and left the Star Wars: Attack Squadrons article, complete with a "cleanup" tag for someone else to come along and "clean up" your mess, is far from acceptable. You may read more about the necessary conditions for a Wookieepedia article here and here. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 19:11, December 17, 2013 (UTC)

  • Yes, if you can't create an article properly because you don't have the time or are too lazy to write a single sentence of information, then don't just drop it in the mainspace in that condition and expect someone else to fix it for you. The cleanup tag is not a justification for that. We don't have a template for "I didn't write any information. Someone else do this for me instead." We have a minimal level of content that an article needs to reach for it to exist, and you fell well short of that milestone. If you don't have the time to finish an article in a single sitting, you may either work on the article on a personal workpage or use the Inuse template to inform others that you are going to return in the near future to bring the article up to specs. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 20:48, December 17, 2013 (UTC)
    • It's very simple: You must provide a body of textual information for each article you create. This can be as brief as one sentence. As I've said a number of times now, you did not do this, and it is not acceptable to create or leave an article with no information in it. This is Wookieepedia policy. Learn it. Know it. Live it. And while I didn't actually call you lazy, I'm afraid I can't draw any other conclusion for someone who can't bother to write one sentence for an article he creates. I'm finished talking to you about this. Stop arguing with me, and go comply with our site rules. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 23:21, December 17, 2013 (UTC)
  • Just voicing a second opinion here, in case you're bent on disagreeing with Toprawa. Creating an article without an infobox: okay; creating an article without external links section: okay; now an article without a body: not okay. The body is the essential part of the article and if you don't write it, it becomes harder to understand what the article's about, as its case is not being presented and the infobox isn't something that can replace that. "Star Wars: Attack Squadron is a videogame scheduled to be released in 2014" was all it needed extra to your additions, yet you refused to do so and instead added a template (also, you problaby meant {{Expand}}, not {{Cleanup}} since cleanup isn't about expanding the article but more like correcting small mistakes like missing links and/or grammar) in order for someone later (who knows how long) to do what would take you like 4 seconds. That isn't being collaborative, that is being lazy. This coming from a user that has been here for so long and even arguing about it with a fully experienced user, that is pretty shocking. With this said, there's no doubt Toprawa is right and you're wrong, sir. Winterz (talk) 00:41, December 18, 2013 (UTC)
    • Again, you've failed to see the point of your mistake and still will not accept opposing opinions (which comply with wiki policies), replying them aggressively. Believe it or not, I was trying to help you, but in your mighty stubbornness (are you going to consider this an insult as well? Lazy or stubborn are mediocre "insults" at best and still less intense than your harsh replies), you still refuse to accept the fact that you've made a mistake (one that isn't even that unrecognizable or arguable). But fine, I shall say no further. Good day to you. Winterz (talk) 02:48, December 18, 2013 (UTC)

Warning: False image sourcing Edit

This is a warning to you regarding your image uploading. It is required that you provide accurate sourcing for each image you upload. Currently, you're uploading Star Wars Rebels images with the source "Star Wars Rebels." The series isn't even out yet, so there's no way you're uploading these things from there. You're obviously taking them from some other website. That needs to be your specified source. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 21:38, February 13, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Replacement for JPG Edit

If you feel it's absolutely necessary, that's fine. Personally it doesn't matter much to me. CC7567 (talk) 05:08, February 15, 2014 (UTC)

Echo Edit

There's no room for that unused concept picture of Echo. Also, please do not add speculation. Yes, Filoni mentioned "his survival," but Filoni isn't a canonical source. A bts note will be added in soon, mentioning his blog post, but that's about it for now. If Chee or any author officially retcons his death, then the article will be properly updated. JangFett (Talk) 23:49, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

  • Ah okay, I see now. When I update the article and clean it up, I'll try to make some room for the concept art. JangFett (Talk) 00:28, March 11, 2014 (UTC)

Image quality Edit

Thanks for uploading higher-res versions of File:YoungDarthMaulSidious.png and File:DarthMaulGrievousDuel.png. I'm curious, how do you get images that high-res? I scanned the original versions but they did not come out nearly as clear as your versions. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 14:30, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

  • Ah, that would make things easier. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 14:54, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

Image source Edit

If you are able to, please provide a proper source for this image that you uploaded last year. It's a Revenge of the Sith promotional shot, but its source is not Revenge of the Sith. The source field should properly show whatever book or website the image truly came from. Thanks. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 16:29, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

  • Done. Alexrd (talk) 17:18, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

Same with this, please. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 02:56, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

    • IIRC, that's what it is. I merely cropped the picture that was already there a little. Alexrd (talk) 11:00, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

And this. You didn't upload that from the TV Guide article. Please provide the proper source for your upload. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 17:34, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Battle of Zanbar images Edit

Hello! Would you be willing to upload an infobox image for Battle of Zanbar? I tried scanning images again, but this time they came out pretty bad. I was thinking the image could be from the page where Grievous calls out Maul and says "Your end is at hand!" Perhaps cropped from the bottom panel, where Death Watch warriors are fighting the battle droids. I'll also be expanding the page, if you want to upload any other images of the battle. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:54, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

  • Done. If you need any specific images, you can still upload them. Whenever I get the chance, I'll upload a better version over it. Alexrd (talk) 21:29, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

Darth Bane/Canon Edit

Hey Alexrd. Do you have a source for changing "illusion" to "specter" on Darth Bane/Canon? All we have to go on, so far as I'm aware, is Sacrifice—where Yoda specifically calls Bane out as an illusion. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:27, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • Both the episode guide of Sacrifice and the Encyclopedia article of Bane define his appearance as a specter. The specter of Bane is an illusion, which is what Yoda calls out. Alexrd (talk) 21:15, June 7, 2014 (UTC)
    • OK, thanks. Given that, I think we should either revert back to just illusion, or find a way to combine the two. Specter, in and of itself, implies that it's a ghost, which it's not. Thoughts? - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:21, June 7, 2014 (UTC)
      • I believe they've used the term specter specifically to differentiate it from ghost (something impossible for a Sith). In my opinion, illusion is a very bland term, since most of what Yoda experienced on Moraband (the specters and the creature outside the valley, Bane' specter, the vision of Sifo Dyas and the sequence where he faces Sidious and Dooku) was an illusion. The article itself already states twice that Yoda's experience with the specter was an illusion, so I don't think it hurts to give a more specific term to Bane's appearance where appropriate.
