Capitalization Edit

Hi: thanks for all the work you're doing on KOTOR equipment articles. (Are you the anonymous user I talked to before?) Just a note: we generally prefer to capitalize only the first word in an article's title (thus, we'd like to use Sith sniper rifle rather than Sith Sniper Rifle.) See Wookieepedia:Manual of Style for details. Thanks again, —Silly Dan (talk) 02:57, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure if I understood your response. Was the problem that the KOTOR equipment list linked to Zabrak Blaster Pistol but not to Zabrak blaster pistol? Because this is easy to change: just edit the link in the KOTOR equipment list to the proper capitalization. You can also create an article, and use the "move" tab to move it to the correct capitalization. A redirect page will be put at the old capitalization, which will automatically forward a user to the page with the correct capitalization. (See Wikipedia:Redirect for more info.) —Silly Dan (talk) 17:31, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
    • (Also, of course, all the words in a proper noun like Empress Teta or Nar Shaddaa are capitalized, but you knew that. Just to say not all of your articles may need to be moved.) —Silly Dan (talk) 17:41, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
      • Ah right, thanks for that. Was wondering why it wasn't working but noticed now that i left the capitals in the main entry and when linking it I did not use capitals. Anyway thanks for that and sorry for the excessive capitals. Darth Batrus(talk) 18:56, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Minor thingsEdit

Hey, like Silly Dan said, good job on your KOTOR stuff. Just don't forget to italicize where you got the info (Ex. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic). Also relating to that, put ==Appearances== instead of ==Sources== if they directly came from there. Only put the Sources section if it is only mentioned and/or given a description only. But like we said before, good job. -- Cato Neimoidia 01:27, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Another thing. Please set all in-universe articles to past tense, and please try to incorporate the name of the item or person, in the opening sentence. Thank you. -- Riffsyphon1024 04:56, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

SpeciesEdit

Just to note: non-sentient creatures are not classed as native species in planet infoboxes - Kwenn 16:53, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Oh right, sorry about that. I saw it on another world but I think I might have confused the Baffor trees for non-sentient. Sorry about that again will try and undo. - User:Darth Batrus 14:55, 26 July 2006
    • No problem. I've already reverted the changes - Kwenn 16:56, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

TFU databank triviaEdit

Saw your entry on the MAAT. Anything on the new Star Destroyer seen in the game? :) VT-16 17:58, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

None at the moment, still working my way through the game. I was hoping that there would be an entry since you see them outside the hangers but none yet :( Darth Batrus 18:06, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, good going anyway. You're a trooper. :D VT-16 18:07, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, will add as much as I can :) Darth Batrus 18:16, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
That's very appreciated. I first heard of an in-game databank a few days ago, and wondered if info would ever reach Wookieepedia. VT-16 18:58, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Well will add as much as I can unless someone else decides to take on the task now though my only regret though is I can't take any pictures and upload them :-/ I mean the Imperial Navy commando looks cool :D Darth Batrus 19:40, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Oh well, at least the effort is appreciated. :) VT-16 11:23, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

do you mind if i help you with the force unleashed Vex drev 18:30, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Nope, don't mind. Please do contribute to it. :) Darth Batrus 18:55, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

so what do you need help with Vex drev 18:56, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Well anything really, like perhaps adding more detail to the entries or perhaps adding content that I missed etc etc or maybe checking the grammer. Darth Batrus 18:59, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Vong picEdit

Cool, thanks for that. Do you think you can upload the image onto Wookieepedia? If not then no worries :) Darth Batrus 14:12, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

TFU Star Destroyer concept artEdit

Wow. Is it possible to get the picture onto Wookieepedia? Would go nicely with the article. :) VT-16 14:56, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm not sure how to be honest :-/ I don't think I have any means to get a picture from my PS2 onto Wookieepedia. I might try some other means but I fear that they won't be very good quality images. Might try and find a camera and take the shot on my TV. Darth Batrus 15:01, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! VT-16 00:35, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
They're great for the article! Thanks again. VT-16 18:02, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, it's good stuff! :D VT-16 18:25, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Image warningEdit

Please ignore VT-16. If he thinks those uploads are worth crap, then he's blind. I swear to God, if you upload another picture of your TV screen I will ban you until 2038. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 00:21, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Uhm ok, sorry. Was only trying to help. Darth Batrus 10:33, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Categories Edit

Hi, when adding new categories to an article please make sure you put them in alphabetical order. Alphabetizing them helps just as much as adding a new one in the first place. Thanks, NayayenOld Republic military symbol(talk) 16:46, November 12, 2009 (UTC)

Re: Edit

All facts need to be sourced in FAs and GAs, and it probably violates WP:LG. Xd1358 Talk 15:17, January 14, 2010 (UTC)

Sith species Edit

I have been writing up a total re-write of the Sith species article on my PC. I'm just thought I should let you know because you seem to be spending a lot of time on the article. Its part of WP:TOTJ. I plan on making it a Featured Article and I appreciate the work you are doing on it, but I don't want to be competing with you if know what I mean, and I don't want to offend you or anything by deleting your work etc. the only reason it does not say Inuse at the top of the page is because I am working on Ravilan also at the moment and I only wanted to put the Inuse marker up when I was very close to finishing my write up of the Sith species. Reply to me and we'll see if we can sort something out if you still want to edit it. If you still do, you could work with me on it or something and get part of the credit? I don't know. What do you think? Obi-wan Jacobi Jedi Symbol Dark Chrome 08:33, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

  • It's OK by me if you want to update it with full information like you say on your user page, but I'm just letting you know that I will probably be written over.

I'm sorry, it sounds like I am coming on offensive. I'm not, I just want to save you time and effort. If you want we can try to work something out. Thanks.

P.S. I'm not working on the Sith Empire article though, so maybe if you tackle that and I'll tackle Sith species? I don't know. Please reply.Obi-wan Jacobi Jedi Symbol Dark Chrome 08:38, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

    • Thank you for replying, and doing it so nicely! I'm glad you are OK with it. What you have added to the article has been awesome, especially the technology section, I hadn't thought of adding a section for that. The main reason for the total re-write that I am doing is so that it becomes fully accurate with no assumptions and is VERY detailed. What you have added has been detailed and accurate so thats great, I have no problem with what you included, but the problem that the article has always had has been that it wasn't very reader friendly and didn't seem very professional - it just listed facts sort of. You know?

I haven't done a Featured article before but Tommy9281 is tutoring me! So it should be fine, I just have to get Ravilan to good staus before I can do the Sith species though. The Sith species article is nearly all typed up on Microsoft word on my PC (although now I have to make a technology section ;)) so when I finsh Ravilan I'll put it up. I probably wont have to cut too much of what you did to the article anyway, just re-organise words. I'll give you credit too when I nominate it for FA. Also, good job on the Massassi article, you can do that one if you want, I'm more interested in Kissai anyway. I'm glad you're doing the Sith Empire article, its so big that no one seems to tackle it, but you have all the information and from what I have seen you write on it, it has been great! Again, thank you. Feel free to share ideas with me at anytime. :D Obi-wan Jacobi Jedi Symbol Dark Chrome 09:57, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

      • Yeah, thats a good idea about the Library-temple, I'll think about including that. Yes, I was unsure on where that information about the Bothan bit came from, I'll have another look at END:TSD. Cheers. Obi-wan Jacobi Jedi Symbol Dark Chrome 22:58, February 27, 2010 (UTC)
        • Yup, just checked END:TSD, your right. :) Obi-wan Jacobi Jedi Symbol Dark Chrome 23:17, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Sith Empire Edit

Hello Darth Batrus,

Sure, the Sith Empire article falls within the scope of WP:TOTJ. There are no current plans for it other than yours, so feel free to edit as you see fit, so long as everything you add/subtract can be sourced properly. If you need any help with it or anything else, just let me know.Tommy 9281 20:09, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

Zillo BeastEdit

  • Hi! Are you certain about the spelling of 'Doge Urus' and 'Boll'? I can't understand their names exactly, but the episode I saw didn't have the credits. Thx :) --Sompeetalay 17:56, April 4, 2010 (UTC)
    • Thx! Well, subtitles are better than no titles at all, so I guess we can go for these until SW.com says otherwise. --Sompeetalay 21:58, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

Galaxy of Gotals Edit

Hey, DB. I noticed that you added Gotal to the list of species that appear in the book Galaxy of Intrigue way back in January. Do you happen to remember where they appear in the book? I'm working on updating the Gotal article. Thanks for your help! ~ SavageBob 05:41, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

  • Ah, thanks very much! I appreciate the help! :) ~ SavageBob 17:29, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Culture of Onderon Edit

Good morning, Darth Batrus,

I see you're adding a new category to many articles related to Onderon. Do you plan on actually creating the category page? If not, all of your recent edits run the risk of being reverted. Thanks,Tommy 9281 14:20, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

No problem, friend. Let me know if I can assist you in any fashion.Tommy 9281 14:27, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Clogging Edit

I would like to thank you for your contributions to Wookieepedia. It is recommended that you use the preview button before you save; this helps you find any errors you have made, and prevents clogging up recent changes and the page history. Thanks again. —TK-999 Era-imp(Rise of the Empire) 14:33, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

Warning! Edit

Darth Batrus, please remove the gallery of pictures on your user page. It is agianst regs (Wookieepedia:User image policy) to have a gallery on a userpage. Remove them NOW or i will report you to an admin. --Talrrivanian JaingHead (Headquarters) 06:59, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

  • Dear Talrrivanian, there's no need such hostile attitude, please assume good faith when interacting with others. –Tm_T (Talk) 07:11, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

Unverified Information Edit

Thank you for contributing to Wookieepedia! Please note that at least one of your recent additions added unverified information to a mainspace article. Additions to Wookieepedia's articles must be verifiable by a reliable source per our sourcing policy, and unverified information may be reverted or deleted. Continuing to add unverified information may lead to you being blocked from editing by an administrator. Thank you. JangFett (Talk) 15:37, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

  • I already placed certain things from your edits back into the article. Yet, one of the things to watch out for is a violation of WP:ATT. As you see through this edit a few paragraphs after line 47—"Their military defense force included the Mon Calamari Guard who were equipped with spear blasters. In addition, the Mon Calamari Knights were considered some of the galaxy's greatest warriors." We don't know if they had this guard by the time of 19 BBY or the Knights, for that matter, unless a source confirms it. As for the other issues, that weren't part of the warning, were the images. No need to add more unless you can find room in the article. Hope that helps. JangFett (Talk) 15:58, September 27, 2011 (UTC)
    • You can say during the Clone Wars they had the Knights and Guard, with context, but then you will have to further break it down. Meaning, what you can do is mention the Knights when they appear; they appeared in the CW chapter 5 and then the Insider IU news article. While the guard only appeared in that TCW episode that featured the second battle on Dac. So a sentence or two about each would suffice. What you can't do is say they had these two military factions and they helped to fight the Empire, unless it's confirmed. JangFett (Talk) 16:23, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

IN-GA 44 Edit

I noticed you added in that she is a HRD. What is the source of this information? None of the sources I've looked at state that. Thanks. <-Omicron(Leave a message at the BEEP!) 15:04, December 19, 2011 (UTC)

New articles Edit

Hey, Batrus. Thank you for creating so many new articles on Wookieepedia! However, I ask that you please pay closer attention to proper formatting when creating new articles. I suggest you carefully look through Wookieepedia policies before creating anymore new articles. Thank you for your cooperation.—Cal JediInfinite Empire (Personal Comm Channel) 15:09, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

  • The main thing that I noticed right away was that you were putting the {{Eras}} template below the {{Majorspoiler}} template. According to the WP:LG, the Eras tag always goes on top of the article unless there is a {{Title}} template in the article. Happy editing!—Cal JediInfinite Empire (Personal Comm Channel) 16:01, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

Invalid ref tag in Hutt article Edit

Hi, the edits I refer to in this note are ones you made. I know they were over a year ago, but do you happen to remember your source for the three pieces of information in question? Asithol 22:39, March 2, 2012 (UTC)

  • Heh, no need to apologize for the delay in responding; clearly, we all have real lives that sometimes get in the way of keeping up with Wookieepedia! I'm updating the ref tag now; thanks for the pointer. Asithol 23:55, June 12, 2012 (UTC)

Multiversal Omnipedia Edit

Hi, this is JEB of the Multiversal Omnipedia. Just wanted to let you know that the site is back up. I can't post the URL here because I'm not a registered user, but if you look up the LiveJournal for "jeb1981" via Google, my latest blog posts will point you to it...

Thanks, JEB (March 15, 2012)

Copyright violation and sourcing Edit

This is to let you know that your [edit] to Voss Mystics was reverted. Of the five paragraphs you added, four of them were unsourced, and the first was copied almost word-for-word from the in-game Codex. Copy-pasting information like that is considered a copyright violation, and is not permitted here. If you wish to add information from the Codex, please rewrite it in your own words beyond just rearranging tenses and punctuation. Thank you. Cade Calrayn StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit 15:39, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Cookie Edit

Wookieecookie
Menkooroo (talk) has awarded you a Wookiee Cookie!
For all of the hard work you've done on the Hutt article throughout the years. Thanks for your dedication to keeping it extensive, detailed, and fully-sourced.

Gree and sourcing Edit

Hey, Batrus! Love the work you've been doing on Gree. You should try to cite your sources, though. Your work is really good, but it would be even better if you told others where you were getting your information from. It also safeguards your work a bit better, since anyone can remove unsourced material at any time. Think about it, and keep up the good work! ~SavageBOB sig 01:58, January 17, 2013 (UTC)

  • Hmm. Please accept my apologies: last night, when I looked over the article, the [1] references must have blended into the information that's there, so I assumed the article was unsourced. It actually isn't. :) It's shaping up quite nicely, so keep it up! Do you have any images from The Old Republic you could add? That would spice up the article nicely. ~SavageBOB sig 17:37, January 17, 2013 (UTC)

Gree images Edit

Just a heads up: there are some good-quality shots of the Gree from SWTOR on the official game site. See here, particularly this image. Might make a good addition to the Gree article (perhaps cropping one or both of the Gree for use in the infobox?) if/when you get time! ~SavageBOB sig 22:04, January 19, 2013 (UTC)

  • Well, there's always the injunction be be bold! But I'd be happy to take a look or hear out your ideas. :) ~SavageBOB sig
