A New Hope editions.... Edit

Hi... an abridged "young readers edition" of the Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker was published at the same time as the original novel.

In the UK (Sphere Books), the original paperback had a cover with a white background, and the Young Readers edition had a red background. I searched on the internet and found this reference:

www.librarything.com/work/1023135/editions/

Here's an image of the UK cover:

Might be nice to add this the the novelisation entry.

Centerpoint Station Edit

Hi, by questionable I meant - is it anywhere written, Han Solo actualy saw or even know about Centerpoint before A New Hope? If not, I'm not surprised he reacts that way when first seeing Death Star I. So, it's still POV unless is canonized in some source, he had previous knowledge. Cheers. Btw read Centerpoint Station talk page under Continuity Headache - somebody already explain very same situation there.--Jedi Marty 11:53, February 25, 2012 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your reply. Well, I was giving some thoughts about what you wrote to me and I partly agree with you. However going back through Han's biography and what I remember novels I read about him, first you learned a lot about Centerpoint was during Corellian Crisis in 18 ABY. Although it was there centuries before it has "no particular meaning" and frankly I don't think people from Corellian system even care (why should Han?) about purpose or in this case size. With a bit of stretch I could compare that to planet repulsors hidden and discovered during same crisis. Han wasn't archaelogist, you know to go after wonders of galaxy, although it was in his home system :). And it's nowhere stated (like you said) he knew about existence of Centerpoint before seeing Death Star I for the first time. It's really questionable when he learns about it's existence (surely before 18 ABY). That's why I point to NPOV. So we can only speculate and debate or like you said going thru logical conclusion based on canon. Where is that borderline between those two? Btw I noticed logical conclusion vs speculation and assumption is many times source of disputes here among users. But I'm glad you brought that up.--Jedi Marty 21:32, March 2, 2012 (UTC)
    • Hi Asithol, I'm surprised by your reply. I already put this thing behind.

      Well, I still don't see any contradiction or even need for retcon, though I agree with all facts you wrote. However it's still your POV, which I respect, but you know per wookieepedia policy POV is not allowed to be included in articles. I'll explain why I don't see any contradiction further. First of all let's get into account Han skepticism f.e. you know he thought about The Force as some kind of hokey religion that time. Next, what is common knowledge of people in the galaxy how usually big space stations are and what Han considers common knowledge by his experience and travel? Btw. you know it's different when you read or learn about something and actually see that thing.

      Now, let's break down that particular scene: Luke Skywalker first says: it's a small moon, then Obi-Wan Kenobi reply: It's no moon, it's a space station, then Han reply with his already mentioned skepticism: It's too big to be a space station. So first thought was Luke's: Death Star 1 is to be a small moon. If you compare even small moon with space station, you'd logically (Centerpoint is exception) doubt something first thought to be moon, to be actually space station (also see how Death Star 1 resemble small moon in shape? - hence Luke's first thought about it). More, Centerpoint Station wasn't in common knowledge a you know it was a mystery for people in IU, except for people, who lived there. And like I wrote before it wasn't common size of space station either (TCSWE describes that as Enormous space station). That I think explains Han's skeptic reaction and that's why I don't see any contradiction here. Btw. who is Allen, you mentioned on the end of your post and his relation to our discussion?--Jedi Marty 15:13, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

Hutt CitationEdit

Hiya Asithol, sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I was away on holiday and without internet access so was unable to see any edits on my talk page. To answer your question, I believe I was attempting to cite the Databank Hutt article when it existed at the time. I think I tried copying the citation from another page but I think I failed in that goal :( But anyway, I'm pretty sure I was using the Databank at the time. Darth Batrus 19:03, March 15, 2012 (UTC)

Talk Page Edit

We've never seen a need to create a page for it. Allowing the restarting topics months or years after they've ended can make navigating the page by looking at dates tricky and, even more importantly, it makes archiving pages a true hassle. Just don't do it, please. You're more than welcome to start new threads on whatever you want that follow {{Talkheader}}, but don't post in dead threads.

Re: Galactic Standard notation Edit

Hello, Asithol! To be frank ("I must be Frank, Your Majesty."), I didn't even remember adding that to the article. I did check Order 66: A Republic Commando Novel just a minute ago, and it seems my interpretation was clearly in error. Thanks for pointing that out! Feel free to correct the article. :) --LelalMekha (talk) 08:47, April 1, 2013 (UTC)

Naming policy Edit

Hello -- I've started a CT thread at Forum:CT:Naming policy: minor change to definite/indefinite article usage based on your proposed changes to the naming policy. Hope you don't mind that I went ahead and submitted the proposal. As you said, it's a minor change, so I'd expect it to pass shortly. Cheers, —Silly Dan (talk) 19:36, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Reversion Edit

Certainly. The reasons were:

  1. Adding a real-world correlation. Things in the SW universe should not be equated to their real life counterpart. Laws in the SW universe are not necessarily the same as ours, and should not be treated as such.
  2. Adding dates in parenthesis - using parenthesis is a generally discouraged practice.
  3. Altering the formatting around "Look Sir, Droids!" As an article/short story within the magazine, the name should not be italicised.

Hope that helps. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 07:15, August 29, 2013 (UTC)

The point I was making is that the information is not relevant at all to the article in question. Law in the SW universe is not analogous to our own, and pointing out similarities or differences is completely unnecessary. For that reason, I have again removed the sentence. You are correct over the formatting issue, and I apologise for misreading the coding. As for a the "discouraged practice" - its not codified in the MoS or LG, true, but the inclusion of any information in parenthesis is generally preferred to be either removed, or rewritten to eliminate the need for parenthesis. I have also corrected the "Gentech" error. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 10:10, August 31, 2013 (UTC)

Recent EditsEdit

Hello Asithol, the comment is there to illustrate the confusion between the two characters. It is also there through a process of elimination of human female expanded universe characters that have been identified as being present in Jabba's throne room during that specific event. Jess, Mara Jade Skywalker & Laudica have all been accounted for whereas Melina Carniss has not.

Also can you please direct me to the policy where short story and song titles are mandated as being in italics and why that should exclude music videos? Bo Shuda (talk) 09:05, December 15, 2013 (UTC)

  • Shouldn't quotation marks only be placed outside the period where the sentence begins with a quotation mark not when the quotation starts in the middle of a sentence? Bo Shuda (talk) 09:08, December 15, 2013 (UTC)
  • Hi Asithol. If you are going to continue to change appearances/sources between italics/quotations and vice versa may I remind you that Wookieepedia policy only requires MLA for citations. Not the Appearances & Source lists or article text. I think you may need to take your position on this to the forums to have the Layout Guide/MOS amended to specify that short stories and song titles should be in quotation marks as there actually isn't any policy mandating what you are doing; only the citations that appear in the Notes and References section. Also of note is that MLA is virtually non-existent internationally as Harvard & NPA are the preferred citation methods for scholarly citations. It makes it extremely difficult to adequately cite if the citation method (ie. MLA) is not even freely available. Bo Shuda (talk) 08:05, December 24, 2013 (UTC)
    • The reason I brought it to your attention is that it appears that even the adminship disputes what you have been doing, with this edit in particular. I feel that it is your responsibility to pursue it with them, not mine. Bo Shuda (talk) 09:42, January 4, 2014 (UTC)

Dominus Edit

I reverted your edit because that sentence serves a purpose—I was trying to give context to the other sources mentioned in the article. Personally, that's something I've done in my articles for a long time. It's not intended to give any information on the sources themselves, but how the character relates to the sources. The BtS mention is meant to tell the reader that Dominus receives just a mention in those sources, or an entry in the CSWE, which directly relates to the character and I think is worthy of being in the BtS.

  • Listen, I completely understand where you're coming from. If you want to take that part out, I'm not gonna make a big deal about it. IFYLOFD (Enter the Floydome) 01:25, December 23, 2013 (UTC)
