Rebels timeline

Hello, Brandon. I see that the original SH thread devoted to the timeline of Star Wars Rebels media has been archived and cannot be edited anymore. Where should I add new intel, then? --LelalMekha (talk) 19:03, July 9, 2016 (UTC)

  • Good catch. I unarchived it. It actually can still be edited, you just have to add ?action=edit to the end of the URL. Which isn't something that anyone should normally do for archived forums, but in this case this particular forum doesn't need archiving. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:15, July 10, 2016 (UTC)

Ahsoka Tano page

Would I be able to take the work you've currently done for Ahsoka's page on User:Brandon Rhea/workspace4 and expand on it on my own workspace? When I've finished I'll show you to see what you think. I just wanted to ask permission before I did anything. Thanks a lot! --Kyle03 (talk) 09:00, July 10, 2016 (UTC)

  • I'd prefer not. Sorry. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:16, July 10, 2016 (UTC)

Kylo Ren and his Training as a Jedi

Hello. I want to ask the equestion. Some of the people asking me about that Kylo Ren began his training in 23 year, but some people said that this info wasn't written in the Bloodline. Can you say where was written in the Bloodline that Kylo Ren began his training as a Jedi in an age of 23? --DN345Real (talk) 14:54, July 12, 2016 (UTC)

  • Hey. So it's not that he began his training at 23. It's that he was 23 in Bloodline (and it suggests he started his training earlier). We know he's 23 in the book because of its placement in the timeline. He's 29 in The Force Awakens, and Bloodline is set 6 years before the movie. So with that, we know he was 23 in Bloodline. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 15:30, July 12, 2016 (UTC)
    • Ok. Thanks for information=) I just thought from the article of Kylo Ren that he begun training in age 23. Text from article: By the same age, Ben had begun training with Skywalker as one of the students in his uncle's new generation of Jedi. Can you fix this to avoid misunderstanding? ----DN345Real (talk) 15:47, July 12, 2016 (UTC)
      • The key word there is "by." It means he started by the time he was 23 (which is accurate, since he could have started anywhere up to that point), not that he started at the age of 23. If you have an alternate wording suggestion, we can certainly use that. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 15:52, July 12, 2016 (UTC)

Rivaan Ginn (talk) 20:54, July 19, 2016 (UTC) I have come to contact you because there is a user, "Rowyn", who has completely crossed the line with an outrageously inappropriate comment about porn and women. This is the exact quote: "True CFran, whoever, the Star Whores movie(s) is not Cannon (unfortunately), because porn is the only genre where its awesome to have a strong lead female character that can(and will) do anything and everything really really good,"

This is the thread where said quote can be found, along with the user "Rowyn"

Check out this post @Wikia http://starwars.wikia.com/d/p/2791598632447509689

I know it is your job to assess and ban users if worthy of ban, but I have seen users banned for much less and comments like this are not only inappropriate but keep the forums off topic and degrade their quality.

Thank you for your time Rivaan Ginn (talk) 20:54, July 19, 2016 (UTC)

Infobox comments and background

Hi Brandon! I have two questions regarding infoboxes, and I was hoping you could help me with those. (I use Monobook.)

Firstly, some time ago, it used to be that in a {{Planet}} infobox you could add a <br /> after a file link and then write some comment that would explain the image. (here are a couple of old revisions with examples: one and two). Now the addition of such comments just causes the image to not show at all. Is this still a problem to be solved or is there another way to do it now?

Secondly, why don't image background fields work? (examples here and here).

I hope I addressed these questions to the right person. :) Thanks! Imperators II(Talk) 04:37, July 21, 2016 (UTC)

Questions

Do you know the name of the planet; that Luke Skywalker's Jedi Temple was located on.--Jabu-1 (talk) 15:45, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

Did Kylo Ren have the rank of Jedi Knight or Jedi Master in the New Jedi Order; prior to his fall to the Dark side.--Jabu-1 (talk) 15:47, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

  • Hey. To answer your questions:
    1. We don't yet know what planet Luke's temple was located on.
    2. We don't know if Luke's Jedi used any sort of rank structure yet, so no we don't know. What we do know, though, is that Kylo was one of Luke's apprentices.
  • I hope that helps. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 15:51, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

Darth Maul

Given your recent revert, could you at least respond to the Talk Page? The discussion appears to be collecting dust. DarkKnight2149 22:55, August 14, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Discussions Update: August 16, 2016

From what you posted in this thread... http://starwars.wikia.com/d/p/2812529962559473018

I'm concerned with the implementation of 'categories' in the Community Discussion Forums. I fully understand the need and decision to have Admins make these decisions (per you wording).

Here's my response to your announcement in that thread...


" I've noticed the bottle cap user badge on the browser interface for a little bit now. I figured that was going to be implemented in the app soon.

The Android users are already aware of the 'general' category. I communicated with the masses that this was an indication of multiple categories being implemented in the future. I can safely say that most of us are incredibly eager for this to happen.

I've also notice the back end going through multiple updates this week (forums slow down, people can't log in, etc,..). I'm always excited when this happens!

Anyhow, I really hope that, as a moderator, that I will be able to choose what and which categories will be implemented. I have a working knowledge of these forums and have a really good feel for what should be implemented. At the very least, I should have some kind of input.

If that means having a discussion in the wikia or on the forums with the Admins, then we should make this happen.

Please contact me here, my talk page, or email."


I fully understand why Admins wouldn't be on the Discussion Forums very much. They have much more important things to do. Running the wikia and contributing to it is not only far more important, it's also very time consuming.

Since I'm a moderator, I believe that my first hand and daily experiences in the forums give me valuable insight as to what would make the discussion forums run more smoothly, as well as insight to what won't work.

I'm not sure where or how I can give my input to what categories should be implemented, but if you can guide and help me, I am more then willing to help with this exciting transition.

I believe in these forums. I believe they will make Wookiepedia grow. I would like to help with this. --ChristopherLeeGallant (talk) 18:41, August 16, 2016 (UTC)

  • I've noticed that our Administrators want very little to do with Discussions and would be unlikely to carry out the duties you've listed in the update. From personal experience, I know CLG would be the perfect man for the job. He has my endorsement, if that at all matters. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 18:50, August 16, 2016 (UTC)
    • The admins are beginning to embrace Discussions now that the quality of conversation there has really improved. So Christopher, you will undoubtedly be able to coordinate with the admins about what categories to add. Feel free to start a conversation with them here. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:43, August 18, 2016 (UTC)
      • Thank you. I'm in the middle of NFL fantasy football drafting this week. After this sunday, I'll get the ball rolling with the admins on this.--ChristopherLeeGallant (talk) 01:48, August 24, 2016 (UTC)

Identity confirmation on Twitter

I sent you a message on twitter. Just wanted you to know that https://twitter.com/RealCGallant is indeed me. --ChristopherLeeGallant (talk) 22:44, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

Emperor vs emperor

The Emperor is more or less consistently capitalized across Wookieepedia, and while Wookieepedia is not a source, I believe this is indeed the proper capitalization. You are correct that emperor is not capitalized when referring to the general title (i.e Palps and Valkorion are both emperors, but Palps as an individual is referred to as the Emperor. WP:MOS#Ranks_and_titles stipulates that some titles should always be capitalized and I believe the Emperor is one of those. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 18:47, September 13, 2016 (UTC)

  • StarWars.com Databank also consistently capitalizes the Emperor. 1358 (Talk) 18:50, September 13, 2016 (UTC)
    • Yeah, it's a special case. We actually used to capitalize every title when it was referring to an individual until like two years ago, but that was changed to reflect proper grammar. However, exceptions remain for titles like Padawan and in this case the Emperor. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 19:01, September 13, 2016 (UTC)

Discussion Category Changes

We are on the verge of a big influx of new members with the premiere of Rebels this coming Saturday. The hype alone has already seen plenty of new users post in the Discussion forums. Because of this, I feel that it's incredibly important for the changes to be implemented ASAP. It's also important for the existing community to get used to the changes by the time when Rogue One comes out. When the community is familiar with the reasoning for the changes, they will also help with new members down the road. I've already posted my recommendations for the new categories on the Administers' Noticeboard. Any help in pushing this forward would be greatly appreciated. The list can be found in this post: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:NB:%27Categories%27_for_the_Discussion_Forums?t=20160914203135 --ChristopherLeeGallant (talk) 06:13, September 19, 2016 (UTC)

  • I'd recommend messaging Toprawa and Ralltiir directly to see if he has any issues with the proposed categories. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 12:36, September 19, 2016 (UTC)
    • Thank you. Let me know if you have any positive or negative criticisms on my talk page about any of these changes. I'm always open for different perspectives. --ChristopherLeeGallant (talk) 20:55, September 19, 2016 (UTC)

Thrawn Article

Just out of curiosity, is it not allowed to "claim" an article prior to the release of a particular piece of media/material, as I planned on updating it following the premier. Just wanted to know for future reference, because I was about to rewrite after the episode. I assume you already saw the episode as well though. I'm not upset or anything though, but maybe I do not know the exact purpose of the inuse template :) Darth Ravigious (talk) 22:53, September 24, 2016 (UTC)

  • Correct, it's not meant for claiming an article prior to release. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:55, September 24, 2016 (UTC)
    • Alright. Sorry man. Is all of the article already updated with prior info from tonight's episode, or is more to be added later? Darth Ravigious (talk) 23:05, September 24, 2016 (UTC)
      • I included all information that I'm aware of, including from the episode. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:07, September 24, 2016 (UTC)
        • From what I read, it looks like we'll get a fantastic backstory. How did you end up getting a hold of it BTW? Darth Ravigious (talk) 23:09, September 24, 2016 (UTC)
          • WatchDisneyXD.com, with my cable subscription. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:10, September 24, 2016 (UTC)
            • Huh. Didn't know it was on demand yet. Darth Ravigious (talk) 00:12, September 25, 2016 (UTC)
              • Usually a Rebels episode will go online earlier in the day of its premiere. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 00:47, September 25, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Noel Rubin

Hello Brandon. Just wanted to make sure that I haven't done anything improper with the Noel Rubin article, since I am the on e who wroe it in the first place. If I'm not mistaken, I only used sources that were legally and widely available online at the time. Not that I'm particularly attached to that article, mind you; I'm just worried that I may have done something improper or, dare I say, illegal. :-/ --LelalMekha (talk) 22:57, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

  • Nope, you're good! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:02, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
    • Good. Thanks, then! :-) --LelalMekha (talk) 23:14, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
