Since I'm aware of them, please do not leave me messages concerning outstanding objections on either the FAN or GAN. Thanks.

well hello there

Re: AppearancesEdit

I always add every category for something if something belonging to it appears in a work. For example, if a Gozanti-class cruiser shows up, then that counts as a cruiser appearance as well. If Kanan's lightsaber shows up, then that counts as a lightsaber appearance as well. There would be absolutely nothing in the appearances sections of things like cruiser and lightsaber if they weren't listed when a type of cruiser or lightsaber appeared.

As for planets and such, I was always under the impression that so long as a planet appeared, the system, sector, and region it was located in appeared as well. That planet is in that system, so that counts as an appearance for the system as well, and so on. Even if the sky on a planet is shown, they're essentially looking at the system as well. I've never, in all my time of doing this, run into anyone, admin or regular user, who disagrees or has even asked me why I do this (I've even seen other users do this as well).

Besides that, numerous times in Star Wars canon there's been someone on a planet in, say, the Outer Rim, and while on that planet they will say something about how they are currently in the Outer Rim. It just seems strange to not document that as an appearance of the Outer Rim when the planet the character is on is located there, and the character even says that they are currently in the Outer Rim.

I hope that all makes sense. The appearances sections would be extremely lacking and bare bones if the categories of things like weapons and vehicles weren't listed as well.Cevan IMPpress (talk) 21:28, November 10, 2015 (UTC)

  • Hmm. What about sectors, then? Would it count as a sector appearance if a system in that sector actually appears onscreen? There isn't really any way for a sector to show up without a system in in appearing. Cevan IMPpress (talk) 21:40, November 10, 2015 (UTC)
    • Glad we're in agreement on weapons, vehicles, and such, but I would like to ask a couple more questions regarding system, region and whatnot, if you don't mind. Obviously if the space above a planet is shown, that counts as an appearance for the system, sector, and region, no doubt about it. I am still curious about some things regarding this, though. I realize it's a deleted scene (though the exact events of it have been detailed in at least one canon source), but in the Episode IV deleted scene of Luke meeting Biggs again and finding out he's back, Luke looks up and tries to show Biggs a battle going on in the sky overhead. Let's ignore the rest of the film for a moment and just focus on this scene. The ships visible above are in the Tatoo system, so wouldn't that mean the Tatoo system appears, despite none of the characters in the scene going into space? If so, wouldn't this mean that anytime the sky on a planet is shown, the system it's in appears as well? It's obvious that objects located off the planet and in the system, such as moons and ships, can be seen from the ground, so is there any reason that just seeing the sky and/or these celestial objects wouldn't count as an appearance for the system?

      • Thanks for helping to clear that up a bit. Just to clarify, it's all right to add the system, sector, etc. as an appearance if the planet is never shown from space, but only if something in space such as a ship or a moon is seen in space from the planet surface?

        • Thought so, just wanted to double check. Thanks so much for clearing this all up, Jang. I will definitely keep this in mind in the future, and I'll try to go back and adjust other appearances sections in light of this (though that may take some time).

Re: Pipelinking Edit

Hi JangFett, and thanks for your note. I was unable to find anything about this in the MOS, so I went with the solution logic suggested. That is, the thing being linked to is more accurately Luke than Luke's, so the 's shouldn't be part of the link. This seems to be pretty common practice throughout Wookieepedia, especially when pluralizing links (i.e. one typically finds [[Jawa]]s rather than [[Jawa|Jawas]]). Is there a style guideline to the contrary? Asithol (talk) 22:30, November 14, 2015 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the response, Jang. Sorry I was unclear before; I should've just stuck to my primary question without all the tangents. :) That is, where is Wookieepedia consensus about this documented? It's not in the MOS, the most obvious place for it. Thanks. Asithol (talk) 23:35, November 27, 2015 (UTC)
