Legends names in "Blade Squadron" Edit

Hi, Professor Tofty! I just wanted to chime in to say that the "Legends" names that remain in the Blade Squadron are in fact redirects that should be overriden. It happens that the text does use those names, which are only alternate names found in the Legends continuity. I'm not sure I'm making myself very clear, though. ^^" --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 19:39, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

Novelizations Edit

The movie novelizations are canon to the extent that we keep them in the Appearances section; however, they should generally not be used in references. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 19:47, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

  • They should be there. The novelizations were declared canon where they intersect with the movies, which means at least certain parts of them are canon. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 20:13, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
    • Yes, and in fact this has been discussed among several regulars and there will probably be a vote on it during next week or so. For now, however, I'd ask you to stop removing the instances as I think we should default to listing all canon items, novels included. 1358 (Talk) 20:22, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

Heh heh, yeah, it was about time, eh? ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:16, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

Re: CSD Edit

The article was deleted because most of it was just copy/pasted from the Legends article. You're completely welcome to recreate the article, just make sure that it's worded differently. IFYLOFD (Enter the Floydome) 00:22, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

  • You definitely added some extra stuff on, but too much of the text was identical. Like I said, you're welcome to recreate it. IFYLOFD (Enter the Floydome) 00:27, September 5, 2014 (UTC)
    • Personally, (and I mean this as no disrespect) I think it's just lazy. What's the point of clicking on the canon version of an article if what's within is identical to the one you're already on? For all intents and purposes, we're treating these as two separate articles, and the wording within should be separate. IFYLOFD (Enter the Floydome) 00:36, September 5, 2014 (UTC)
      • Not to butt in, but while I don't subscribe to the laziness argument, there is the copyright element to it as well. It's free to copy, sure, but there are requirements that you have to meet in order to copy it. The ShareAlike requirement is taken care of by default, considering everything here is CC-BY-SA, but there's also the Attribution requirement. You would have to put a tag on the page saying that content has been reused from the original page, as well as a provide a link to the authors of the original content. Considering that would not be great for user engagement (to Floyd's point, it's a deterrence), you should just start from scratch. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 00:45, September 5, 2014 (UTC)
