Re: Comics

Hey Brandon, please see the Layout Guide: "For comics, link to the individual issue, unless a subject appears in every issue of a story arc." The "story arc" can also be a comic miniseries, so Star Wars: Darth Maul—Son of Dathomir should be listed for any subject that appears in all four issues. Hope that helps.

Re: Image quality

No problem. I have the digital version. Alexrd (talk) 14:53, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

Re:Order 66

Hey, Brandon, you're right about those two episodes -- I totally forgot about "Clone Protocol 66" (ugh). As for A New Hope, I still believe that he's referring to the Great Jedi Purge, even though there isn't a canonical version of it yet. However, until it becomes canon once again, we could leave the Order 66/Canon link alone. JangFett (Talk) 16:38, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

WOTM

Hey Brandon. Would you mind me nominating you for WOTM this month? You've been doing some excellent work on the canon articles. 501st dogma(talk) 15:01, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi. I'm flattered that you asked. It's probably too soon considering I've only been actively editing for 2 weeks or so now, and I'm sure there are far more deserving people than me, but if you feel strongly about it then I won't say no. :) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 15:06, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

References

Hey, glad to see you being more active on Wookieepedia. :) Just want to make you aware that when adding references, the preferred form is a lowercase "ref", such as in this fix. While MediaWiki may not care, bots do, and so we strive for consistency in formatting to simplify bot work. So it would be appreciated if you would use a lowercase "r" from now on. Thanks! :)

  • Sure. Can't guarantee I won't occasionally (and inadvertently) use upper case out of habit, though. I've always used upper case R since, like you said, it doesn't make a difference in MediaWiki. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:05, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

Suckpuppet

Sorry to bother you and to tell you this on that wiki but i found out a suckpuppet of at least 10 account. Could you come here?:http://fr.onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Sp%C3%A9cial:Chat--Emperor Jarjarkine StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Senate Hall 18:20, June 24, 2014 (UTC)

  • Can you send this as a report to Special:Contact? That's where I/Wikia staff handle that sort of thing. As this is my talk page on Wookieepedia, and I consider myself a user here first and foremost, I'd rather not use my talk page for staff matters. This is noted on the message at the top of my talk page. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 18:24, June 24, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Bane

Jup, checked it yesterday. Good stuff, keep it up! Clone Commander Lee Talk 10:21, July 4, 2014 (UTC)

New Canon

Thank you so much for answering my questions. But there are still some things I'm stuck with. I always thought that the EU was separate from TCW since TCW was T-canon before this change in April, meaning it was more canonical than the EU, but less than the movies. So wouldn't TCW just be under one continuity (canon), since it sounds like they transferred TCW and the films over to the new canon and everything else made before this new change would be under the Legends banner, right? Darth Pythonis CIS roundel (Talk) 02:55, July 6, 2014 (UTC)

  • Prior to the EU becoming non-canon, everything under G-canon, T-canon, and C-canon, and S-canon (provided it did not contradict higher levels of canon) were all considered one continuity, despite being weighted differently. The Clone Wars was a higher level of canon than, say, The New Jedi Order book series, but—prior to April 25th—they were still part of the same continuity. So post-April 25th, and despite The Clone Wars being official canon and The New Jedi Order being Legends, The Clone Wars still exists in that same Legends continuity because it was in that continuity prior to April 25th. Put simply, canon stories released before April 25th are still part of Legends, but Legends stories are not part of canon. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 03:03, July 6, 2014 (UTC)
    • Yeah it's starting to make some sense. I just thought that canon and Legends were mutually exclusive but as you explained it, they tended to overlap, like in the case of TCW. Ugh why did they do this? It's just making a bigger mess. But thanks again for helping me understand all of this, hopefully.--Darth Pythonis CIS roundel (Talk) 03:12, July 6, 2014 (UTC)
      • No problem! I was actually in favor of the EU becoming non-canon, but to each their own (I definitely sympathize with the disagreements). I'm happy to answer any other questions you have about this. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 03:16, July 6, 2014 (UTC)
        • Well actually, I'm not an EU fan at all and could care less about most of the EU becoming non-canon and I actually wanted the original CW series and the Clone Wars-related material before TCW to become non-canon, but not everything though like the Old Republic and Darth Bane since I doubt Disney will cover these time periods, and if they do I'm afraid they will make it worse. But what has confused me the most is TCW being under Legends too when they said it's canon. When I'm thinking of Legends, I'm thinking of non-canon, which doesn't fit TCW. I feel that Legends should be everything non-canon, and Canon for everything confirmed as still canon. It's bizarre that some things are overlapping and in two totally different continuities.--Darth Pythonis CIS roundel (Talk) 03:45, July 6, 2014 (UTC)
          • You can't really remove the 6 live-action films and The Clone Wars from the Legends continuity, or else the Legends continuity wouldn't make any sense. Most of it is based around the characters of the films. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 03:49, July 6, 2014 (UTC)

Naboo Security

Hey, if you look up their entry in the new databank that's where its listed. Naboo Royal Guards. As soon as the CT is finished I'll update the source/references to switch it from the "Encyclopedia" to the "Databank". Cheers Coruscantfan (Talk) 17:59, July 6, 2014 (UTC)

Republic Navy Wiki

Hey Brandon I could use some contributions about star ships for my guild's wiki on SWTOR. Its up to you if you want to do it. Are link is dagger-wing-squadron.wikia.com and may change to republic-navy.wikia.com all we need is articles about ships, manufacturers, parts, battles etc. Unsigned comment by Evan Alde (talk • contribs).

  • Hey, I generally try not to use my Wookieepedia talk page to talk about other wikias. If you need help finding editors, be sure to check out this help page for some tips. Good luck! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 06:12, July 12, 2014 (UTC)

re: Coruscant/Canon article

No problem, your wording there is better anyways. :) Coruscantfan (Talk) 19:15, July 13, 2014 (UTC)

Ringo Vinda campaign/Canon

Some user keeps tampering with the Ringo Vinda campaign after I fix the page links. Unsigned comment by Evan Alde (talk • contribs).

  • The users are adding the correct links—the /Canon part needs to remain. Please don't remove that. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 07:07, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

A clone apart

What happen to a clone apart did they already end it? Unsigned comment by Cdshaggy24 (talk • contribs).

  • No idea. Sorry! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 17:11, July 18, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Darth Bane transcript

Hey Brandon. Sorry it took me so long to reply—I've had a lot of other commitments limiting my time on the site. I've emailed the transcript to you, so let me know if you have any questions. CC7567 (talk) 09:31, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

Sound files

If this wiki doesn't use sound effect audio files, why has there been one on the first Death Star page as well? It's been there as long as I can remember; nobody's said anything about it or deleted it yet. Why is mine 'unqualified?' 150px|link=user:iteachvader 21:07, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

  • Hey Iteachvader. Sound effect files can be used, just not linked to in the text like that (sorry for the incomplete edit summary). The template used to link to audio files makes the text choppy due to including additional links, like "help" and "info." I've confirmed this with an administrator as well. I've therefore removed it from DS-1 Orbital Battle Station, so thanks for pointing that out. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:04, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

Re Coco

Thanks. By the way, feel free to look over any additions I've made to the Coruscant/Canon article and correct spelling/grammar as needed. That seems simpler then leaving a message for me to go back and fix it and then waiting till I get around to it. :) Coruscantfan (Talk) 22:20, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

  • I plan on still adding sections for "Inhabitants" and "Locations". I've covered most of the major story arches in the "History" section but if you want to add more to it or flush out certain areas go right ahead. Basically anything that is there currently you can add to. I'll let you know when I'm done with "Inhabitants" and "Locations" so that you can look over those as well if you want. Also, if you want, you can go through and fill in all the red links which I was going to work on next. My goal is to get the article up to par as quickly as possible so basically anything you see to add to that, would be great! Coruscantfan (Talk) 22:27, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

Difference between source and appearance?

G'day. What's the difference between a source and an appearance? --Morbus Iff (talk) 15:33, July 21, 2014 (UTC)

  • Hey. An appearance would be a narrative story, like Star Wars Rebels or A New Dawn. Whereas Meet the Rebels is a reference book, which makes it a source rather than an appearance/story. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 15:34, July 21, 2014 (UTC)

Re:Ahsoka

I think you know the reason why. ;) JangFett (Talk) 15:25, July 22, 2014 (UTC)

Real parameter

Hiya, Brandon! Hate to lecture someone who's so experienced, but when creating articles on real subjects, such as Star Wars: Princess Leia or the Star Wars Marvel 2015, don't forget to include "real" in the Eras template. This displays the globe banner at the top putting it in real-world articles, and also keeps the page from being put in the general "Canon articles" category, which is only for in-universe articles. ProfessorTofty (talk) 18:16, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

  • Didn't even think to use that since all the other eras aren't used. Good catch. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 06:22, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

Warcarrier

I created the page Warcarrier (a bomber from SWTOR:Starfighter) It will need i's editing but there is red text at te bottom about references, could you fix that? If you have a question about the article leave it on my talk page User:Evan Alde 21:55, August 1, 2014 (UTC)

Re: TCW coimcs templates

Both {{The Clone Wars comics}} and {{The Clone Wars episodes}} were developed long before there was any indication that OOU media would be split into canon/Legends. Personally I don't see an overbearing need to separate TCW media based on canon status within our navigation boxes, since their main purpose is just to help users get around the site, but you're welcome to do so if you feel it's necessary. CC7567 (talk) 02:17, August 12, 2014 (UTC)

Jedi Council/Canon & A New Dawn

A couple of things. First off, did we ever get an answer on whether the stuff about the Senate giving Palpatine direct control over the Jedi Council was actually in the Revenge of the Sith film? (See this discussion) The Yoda article states that as if it were so. Second, I noted that in your Depa Billaba article, you have backstory from A New Dawn, but wasn't the consensus here not to include that stuff for right now? ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:42, August 18, 2014 (UTC)

  • I don't think we ever got an answer. I know that the first Rebel Alliance deleted scene from Episode III says it, but I don't know about the rest of the movie. Secondly, the only article I planned to add full A New Dawn information from until we get closer to release is the Depa Billaba page (and even then, I'm leaving it as a stub). The first seven chapters have been released online, in which Billaba was included and in which she was shown with "Caleb Dume." That's out there and free to document. However, because adding just that information would mean her page was incomplete/potentially misrepresenting the information, I chose to add full A New Dawn info to that one page. There also wasn't much of a consensus so there's nothing concretely saying not to. I'm working on a full Kanan Jarrus page here, but won't post it until at least a week prior to the full release of the novel. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:46, August 18, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for the info about Revenge of the Sith. I may have to start digging and see if I can just watch the film and find the answer. May take a while, though. As for the Depa Billaba-- ah, okay. Makes sense / good reasoning. And where can I find those seven chapters to read myself? ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:57, August 18, 2014 (UTC)
You can read it here. I recommend it. I'm a little over 2/3 of the way through the full novel, and I'm enjoying it. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:59, August 18, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm reading it now. Would have loved to have been able to get my paws on one of those Advanced Reader's Copies, but ah well. Not all that long now until the final version comes out. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:10, August 18, 2014 (UTC)

Prequel Shorts

Ok, I thought they were taken directly from an episode in the series. I shall fix that. Thanks for helping/directing/scolding me! Nivlacanator(talk) 10:48, August 19, 2014 (PST)

Grievous/Canon

Thanks for fixing my mistake on the article. I had the events of that part of the film backwards in my head lol. Matt Seay (talk) 14:49, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

Workspaces

Hello kind sir, I was was just wondering if you could show me the ways of creating a personal work space on my profile? Thank you Mr. Rhea! Nivlacanator (talk) 17:26, August 24, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Aurebesh

  • No problem :-) I was actually unsure whether I should add them there or not; I guess I should have checked first. Should canon appearances still be added to the legends articles, or are they just for the canon sections? --Nightlily (talk) 20:27, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
    • Good to know! Thanks. --Nightlily (talk) 20:35, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
